Adrak-Lehsun Ki Sabzi (Punjabi Chitt)

Adrak-Lehsun Ki Sabzi is one of the best gluten-free curry recipes we have come across. If you are somehow connected to a Punjabi household, then there this curry is known as Chitt (Ch-itt).  It is no ordinary curry. I’m talking about the kind of curry that hits the perfect score when it comes to – easy cooking, minimal ingredients, soul comforting and robust flavors. We usually crave for chitt on a cold winter evening to dip Phulkas for dinner. There is not one single thing I don’t love about this type of simple, everyday curries. They are nutritious, quick, simple and comfort food to the max. I think there is no reason to not try this Adrak-Lehsun Ki Sabzi at home.

Palak Anda Curry Recipe

What a delicious, blissful Palak Anda Curry Recipe we’ve got going on, and just in time for the upcoming icy-cold winter days. The rustic spinach curry combined with boiled eggs is the answer to the question ‘What could be an alternative to traditional egg curry?’ Though I love the spicy, soup, old-school egg curry during any given day. But when there is an abundant supply of tender spinach leaves and the great need of robust curries to keep us warm. The idea of Palak Anda Curry sounds so much exciting! Just this curry and the piping hot phulkas straight from the gas stove onto the plate, together they provide a delightful meal on a cold winter afternoon.

Arhar Dal Fry Recipe (How to Make Toor Dal)

Arhar Ki Dal is an everyday comfort food to which most us are hooked. Arhar Dal Fry is one lentil curry which without fail accompanies steamed rice or garam garam phulkas for lunch in most of the Indian households. My love affair with this humble lentil curry started at an early age. Anyone who is familiar with the Kumaoni food culture would understand my fondness for this dal. In most of the Kumaoni households, the lunch menu often consists of dal-bhaat (lentil-rice) and when we say dal, by default, we are referring to arhar ki dal. There is an unsaid, soul-satiating comfort in mopping up the piping hot arhar dal fry with steamed rice (bhaat) that too sans using any cutlery. And till date arhar ki dal with rice remains my favorite comfort food, no second thought about it.

Pakodi Ki Sabzi (No Onion/Garlic Recipe)

Like many other curry recipes on the blog, Pakodi Ki Sabzi is too courtesy mom’s recipe book. But this one, in particular, she learnt from her bania (a business community in India) friend much later in life. A no onion/garlic eating regime is quite common in many Indian households but definitely not ours. We follow this kind of strict diet only during certain festivities or mourning, else we are very much in love with our onion and garlic masala. So this friend of mom’s is a pro in no onion/garlic cooking. There is a strong sulphur-rich aroma hanging in the air of her kitchen, maybe because she profoundly uses ghee, jeera and hing tadka for cooking most of the dishes. And we as a kid found that peculiar smell weirdly pleasant and tempting. So we were introduced to this Pakodi Ki Sabzi by this lady (mum’s friend). And much later, when I started exploring the intricacies of local food, found that Pakodi Ki Sabzi is quite a popular recipe in many parts of Northern India.

Chana Dal Pulao Recipe

At this moment in time, I’m happily married to the man of my dreams — who with much love prepared for me Chana Dal Pulao on a lazy, Sunday afternoon. A conventional Punjabi Recipe, simple and flavoursome. Post a long vacation in Singapore, he offered to make me lunch, about five years after we got married. I was taken aback by surprise. The man who only enters kitchen trailing the aroma of good food, talking about cooking lunch. To many of you, it may sound no out of the box story. But for a woman who waited from the first day of marriage for this moment, it was surely an exceptional day. And around then is when he, cheerful and enthusiastic than ever, walked through the kitchen door. I was already on cloud nine. There were butterflies in my stomach like I had on the day of our first date. But that was not the end of panic and pangs. For someone, who never stirred even a pot of milk, cooking main-course meal seems like an uphill task.

Karonde Mirch Ki Sabzi

It’s almost end of August, and predictably the monsoon season is expected to last till mid of September. These days North India is damp and grey, the frogs are having a ball and I deal with it all by keeping myself busy in the kitchen. I love the thunderstorm, the lightning in between the clouds and the shades of grey during the day itself. I make myself a strong cup of coffee and flip the pages of cookbooks in search of new recipes. During this entire season, we are enchanted by the craving for spicy food, nice Indian dishes that go very well with the rain – Aloo Paani, Fulori and now Karonde Mirch Ki Sabzi. Yesterday morning I went to the market and came home with beautiful Karonde (natal plum) having natural vermillion shades. I had no special plans for them, they just were the most attractive looking thing at the vegetable stall. Without having any recipe in mind I got a full bag of Karonde. But there was no revelation. I still didn’t know what to cook. My mind kept asking “what goes well with rain?”

Pahadi Aloo Paani Recipe (Aloo Ki Sabzi)

This year, it rained like never before. It poured cats and dogs. Waking up to the sound of water gushing down, no sunshine, is almost a routine for a month now. The rain in North India always seems more dramatic somehow than rain anywhere else I have been before. Largely, because when it rains for a while, the streets begin to flood with water in a most disgusting fashion; perhaps using boats and knee high boots seems like a sensible decision to reach your destination. Being house arrested due to rain for days we have ample time to read, cook, chatter and capture the mood of the season in digital frames. The sound of the rain, beating down heavily on the windowpanes  – is enough to break the afternoon silence. I find myself oddly pleased in the midst of this raining chaos to continue the normal humdrum of life: cooking and writing. Hence, the weather is perfect to talk about this simple, unglamorous Pahadi Aloo Paani Recipe that makes me feel grounded, happy, contented and connected to my Kumaoni roots.
