Chicken Curry

Hearty Chicken Curry (Slow Cooker Recipe)

0
Last few days I had been thinking about this amazing chicken curry my dad makes. While growing up, he would laboriously spend time in the kitchen and make this for us every week or so. It is a very simple yet flavorful recipe and does not have any extra fat from milk, cream or yogurt. I have been [...]

Punjabi Chole or chickpeas curry is a popular comfort food recipe from North India. Traditionally it is served with Puris or Bhaturas (deep fried breads) and is usually a common dish for weekend lunches for family or even for formal events.

Sukhi Urad Dal (Slow Cooked tempered dry lentils)

0
I finally bought a new slow cooker in October last year when my old rice cooker that had ‘slow cooking’ mode stopped working. It has been 10 months or so and I have been using it very regularly to prepare healthy dishes for my family. I love to cook but don’t find much time while maintaining my [...]
Creamy Pesto Macaroni

Creamy Pesto Macaroni

I wanted to try making it ever since I noticed my son liked a ‘Creamy Pesto Chicken Pasta’ from a local Italian restaurant. That inspired me try making Basil Pesto Sauce and this is what I made first using the Pesto sauce. This is not a perfectly low calorie dish. I can say it might be lighter [...]

By Heidemarie Swanepoel Today I really did not feel like just a sandwich for a quick lunch. It’s raining, and cold, and I wanted to warm up from the inside. Curry is always just the thing for me. This one is quick and easy. Ingredients: 2 eggs 1 chicken breast 1 small onion ½ – 1 cup boiling [...]

Carrot Raita

Lemon Rice with Carrot Raita

This is yet another favorite dish that I make when I have leftover rice on hand and (as usual) I am in a hurry to put together a delicious yet healthy meal. This version of Lemon Rice is based on traditional South Indian flavors although I am not sure if I always follow the tradition religiously [...]

Quick Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice

Here is a 15 minute meal that tastes great and is loaded with great stuff- assortment of vegetables, garlic and rice. This recipe is based on ‘Indian style Chinese’ food we get in local fast food/restaurants in India and I am sure is different than any traditional Chinese fried rice recipe. But [...]
