Khas Khas Doodh (Poppy Seed Milk Recipe)

Have you ever tried Khas Khas Doodh? It is a golden winter bliss prepared with white poppy seed, almonds, and milk. It is an incredible source of heat and energy for the cold winter nights and I’ve been drinking this stuff almost every alternate day from past few weeks. In the Punjabi dialect, they call it Khus – khaas. The Khas Khas wala doodh is typically made with milk, a handful of warming spices (cardamom, turmeric), sugar, and of course the poppy seed and almond paste.  Turmeric is my addition to the recipe. After all, it is such a sort after ingredient these days. Khas – Khas Doodh is quite tasty, distinctly warm, earthy with slight notes of sweetness. Interested??  I totally think you should try the recipe.

Meethi Poori Recipe

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

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.

Samavat Rice Kheer (Vrat Ke Chawal Ki Kheer)

Kheer and the sweet dish season is back. We have officially entered the festive season in India. An array of festivities lined up in the upcoming months and they come to the halt with the year ending. Samavat Rice Kheer is one of the old school puddings that make a perfect dessert for the festive feasts. Simple, no fuss making process and the conventional creamy texture are the highlight of this gluten-free pudding. The only twist we have introduced in the Sama Rice Kher Recipe is adding a layer of fruits before serving. We love our puddings and custards chilled. Winter season as well is no exception for this rule. And the combination of chilled, thick and rich kheer layered with sweet and ripe mangoes, is definitely a gratifying experience for the food senses. If you thinking where to get mangoes in the month of October, then take a look around surprisingly it is still available. At least, it is still here in Delhi.

Classic Carrot Apple Juice with Kent Cold Pressed Juicer

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.

Classic Carrot Apple Juice has clean and refreshing flavors. And the best part - it is cold pressed. You will surely get hooked to this recipe.

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.

Aloo Ki Fulori (Gluten Free Potato Fritters)

Fulori is the regional term for fritters prepared with the vegetables and gram flour. If you have travelled across the old cities of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar then somewhere by the roadside, a food cart selling ‘fulori‘ might have caught the attention of your food senses. Batter coated vegetables, popularly known as pakoras, are one of the popular snack bites in India. How fulori is any different from the regular pakora? To my knowledge, Fulori is prepared with a combination of different flours, vegetables and is generally of bit size. In simple words, it is just another way to enjoy the deep-fried vegetables. Aloo Ki Fulori is a gluten free potato and gram flour fritter with an addition of buckwheat flour minus any onion or garlic. These fritters are crisp, crunchy and addictive, you can’t stop at one or two pieces. And they have enough edge to compliment the green chutney and a cup of masala chai. What a great combination when these fritters are served piping hot with a finger licking good chutney!

Dahi Lauki Recipe (Dahiwali Lauki)

Have you ever had Dahi Lauki? It is bottle gourd cooked in a subtle yogurt based sauce without any onion or garlic. It kind of works like a healing, comforting food that you crave for, after an array of food indulgences. You can dip hot Chapati into this Dahiwali Lauki, relish it with steamed rice or if you are too tired to make any sides, then enjoy a bowl full of it just like that. So delicious and satisfying in its simplicity. I like to make it on days when somebody in the family is in need of a wholesome and light meal, the kitchen help is on leave or on occasions when we come back home from a party empty stomach. Dahi Lauki is one such curry which has rescued me on many such gray days. This is a minimal effort curry but high impact sort of affair that fits just right for summer suppers.
