Our guest post series continues, with the talented Indian food blogger Binjal Pandya from Binjal’s Veg Kitchen! I have long been a fan of Binjal’s great recipes and beautiful photos. And I must say she is among those bloggers who define new artistic perspective of the conventional Indian cuisine with their photographs. While I was compiling the list of guest bloggers for the year 2017 she was the first one to make it to the list. I regularly find myself getting inspired by lots and lots of her recipes, so I know that you’ll enjoy this one! Even more than that, I just completely love being able to call Binjal a friend. And don’t miss out our collection of guest posts on Pinterest.
Paratha adds great variety to our everyday breakfast menu. Stuffed, flavored, layered, may it come in any shape or size, we just love to devour them for breakfast. Though nowadays, cautiously I am making an attempt to keep my favorite Paratha Recipes, as healthy as possible. As you will notice below in the recipe of Spring Onion and Paneer Paratha we have used Multigrain flour for the dough, tried using minimal oil to cook the paratha and used basic seasoning. If you really want to get indulgent with your Parathas, serve them with a dollop of butter. These Spring Onion and Paneer Paratha are easy to make and so much promising on taste and texture.
The regular Aloo Paratha is too dull for me. That is the reason I am always looking ways to combine aloo stuffing with some additional flavors to create a wholesome flatbread. Sometimes, back we shared the Makki and Aloo Ka Paratha. This time, it is Aloo Methi Paratha. Packed with excitement; that describes the Aloo Methi Parathas best of all! The mashed potato mixture is tucked inside the flavorsome fenugreek-laced dough and rolled out to make pillowy parathas. Who could say no to them? Served with simple raita, freshly churned white butter and aam ka achaar, these Methi Parathas are one of our favorite winter breakfast. Almost, a weekly ritual all over the season, till the family had enough of them.
Meethi Poori Recipe is an ode to all those simple joys of festive celebrations in a small town, where I grew up. In those days, no fancy desserts, puddings or store bought confectionary would frame our Diwali. Instead, it was the simple, homemade sweet dishes prepared by the mom and the aunts that enticed our taste buds and sweet tooth cravings. Recipes like Meethi Poori, Sooji Ka Halwa, Gajar Halwa or Gujia are very close to my heart and evoke a strong nostalgia whenever I cook them. These are the dishes that remind me of cheerful and best Diwali’s celebrated at my ancestral home with the loved ones. No elaborate feasts or royal buffets could compete with these festive comfort foods. Meethi Poori is a cross between mawa kachori and the regular Poori. It has the taste similar to that of a rich Rajasthani Mawa Kachori while the crispness and flakiness of a perfect Poori.
What is a cold-pressed juice? Cold-pressed juice is nothing but the regular juice extracted in a most healthy and organic manner without damaging the nutrient value of the juice. It is a slow and gentle method to extract juice from your favorite fruit or the vegetable. How a cold-pressed juice better than the convention one? The regular juices are extracted using a high speed spinning juicer or grinder which generates excess heat. The heat reduces the potency and breaks down essential nutrients and fibres of the fruit/vegetable. Hence, there is minimal retention of fibres and nutrients in the conventional juices. I have recently discovered my love for cold-pressed juices, all thanks to Kent Cold Pressed Juicer.
