100% Whole Wheat Naan – using Microwave Oven (No need of Tandoori)

When you crave for Indian Restaurant food and don't have access to it, why not make your own kitchen like a restaurant and it is such an easy kind of bread with the satisfaction of eating Naan. Also the use of whole wheat naan instead of all-purpose flour makes it a tad bit healthy I think. I haven't come up with a glutenfree version of this bread but will soon experiment and come up with a recipe soon. If you have tried it, do hit me with ideas and recipes. I paired my naan with some Punjabi (North Indian) delicacies Veg Tadka and Dahiwale Paneer      What would you like to pair your naan with? Don't forget to give this recipe a try for sure. Happy Cooking :)   ...

Bengali Style Egg Curry (Dimer Dalna)

Time for some Maa's Bengali Style Dim-er-Dalna which literally translates to Egg Curry. And oh boy! this brings so many childhood memories for me when maa used to make this and I used stand next to her always observing how she cooked it. . Bengali cuisine uses a lot of coconut but not this dish, it is made traditionally using Mustard Oil. It has a depth of flavour from the sweetness of onion, to tanginess of tomatoes, to spice from garlic and ginger and is a perfect match with Steamed Rice. . Raise your hands if you love a humble anda curry!       Do share with me if you give this curry a try. And if you happen to be in the Netherlands, do invite me to you home for this curry :)...

I buy bunch of fruits and veggies and divide them into small freezer friendly pouches for smoothies across the week/month. These freezer bags can be stored all the way upto 6 months! Woaaaahhh! Yes just 20 mins of work and you save so much of productive time in the morning for almost a month or more than that and yes you will thank me every morning for sure! I generally make these smoothie pouches for 3 weeks with 2 to 3 smoothies a week (9 pouches for 3 weeks ready in under 10 mins). I bring them up to the fridge a night earlier to de-freeze the content in the bag – you will find your bananas changing its color and turning into a brownish/blackish mess but that’s fine to consume. It just gets slightly oxidised, doesn’t mean it...
