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 [...]

Ma Chole ki Dal (Slow Cooked Split Black lentils and Split Bengal Gram Curry)

0
‘Ma-chole ki dal’ is a North Indian (most commonly prepared in Punjab) lentil dish that is made with split black lentils(split urad dal) and split Bengal gram lentils (Chana dal). Although I have tried various combinations of mixed dals, this one is my favorite so far. It is certainly a lighter [...]

Achari Baingan (Tangy eggplant simmered in tomatoes and pickle spices) Here is a tangy dish that gets its flavor as well as name from traditional Indian pickle spices.

Sukhi Urad Dal (Slow Cooked tempered dry lentils)

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 [...]

This one is for mom. While growing up paneer based dishes used to be a staple in our house and I cannot even remember how many different kinds my mom, grandmother and my aunts could make! (I grew up in a large family and shared about 12-13 wonderful years under one roof with my parents, brother, [...]

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 [...]

Chana Biryani

I read a similar recipe years ago and found the combination of chickpeas or chana in a biryani dish very different. Usually a vegetarian biryani is made with assorted diced vegetables and I have never seen one with chickpeas served anywhere (or the places I ever ate at). Over the years I have [...]

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli Cheddar Soup (Reduced Fat)

4
I am a big fan of Panera Bread’s Broccoli Cheddar soup. Although I usually prefer lowfat/or at least reduced fat soups, I usually can’t resist this soup on a cold (even rainy) afternoon. I have tried a few recipes from different sources and all were way too rich. So I made few changes, increased [...]
Baked Beans Chilli

Baked Beans Chilli with Beef

By Heidemarie Swanepoel For a little taste of Mexico, I always make this dish for our family. I enjoy using sweet chilli sauce in many dishes, because it adds bite, with a sweet tang, to many dishes. I do not need to slave over finding the right flavors, in the right combinations – I just add a [...]
