Protein packed Black Chickpea cooked with long grain basmati rice makes a quick hearty meal. Kala Chana Pulao is a popular Indian rice dish. I make it with loads of aromatic spices and then pair it with cool yogurt raita. On a busy day, dishes such as these come very handy.
Tiny sago pearls/tapioca pearls cooked with a very few ingredients to make a fluffy pilaf! Sabudana Khichdi is one of the most popular fasting dishes during Navratri festival season. It’s quick, gluten free and takes very minimal effort to bring it together.
This time of the year is meant for vibrant seasonal produces being tossed and tumbled in a plate. It’s always appealing! Broccoli, peas, pasta chucked together in a luscious garlic caper sauce. And some juicy cherry tomatoes for that extra pop of color plus a hint of sweetness. I like to call it Green Summer Pasta!
I probably say this a lot and it's true -- I love trying out new cuisines and exploring new flavors. When the world has so much to offer, why stick to just one kind of food? I am always on the hunt, looking for something new to try and thankfully, my husband also enjoys the journey. Having said that, as much open minded as we are towards food, we are not all that adventurous to try out something bizarre. Bottom line -- it has to smell good, sound good or at the most, look good.
