Chicken Kofta Curry ( Chicken Meat Balls in a Yummy “No Cream” Sauce)

This is one of those recipes I have been meaning to make since Azlin Bloor announced the 'love my balls' event in the foodies community, but I just didn't get a chance to go to the meat shop. Finally I got some minced chicken this Sunday and made it before the event ended in march. This is a simple but tasty meatballs dish that's surprisingly easy to make for weeknights, and exotic enough for a dinner party. This is also a great substitution for anyone looking for a healthy alternative to fried meat balls. They are poached in a "No cream", and "No nut" sauce. Continue Reading

Cabbage Kofta Curry

Here, I am with another vegetarian recipe. While growing up, we had koftas all the time. It was a treat for us. Koftas are delicious, deep fried meat or veggie dumplings. What I like the best about koftas is that they can be made out of anything, as long as you are able to bind the ingredients together into a ball. The most common vegetarian varieties of Koftas made are Lauki (ash gourd), cabbage, mixed vegetable and malai (cheese and potato) kofta. I made these koftas out of cabbage. In Indian household, koftas are mostly served in a curry. Continue Reading

My Mom’s Boiled Egg Curry

Almost everyone has a favorite food cooked by their moms. I do too, and I have to say, quite a few, my mom was a wonderful cook, and I find myself longing for her specialties every now and then. One very particular dish of hers that I grew up loving was this humble boiled egg curry. Now I make it for my family and they love it as me if not more. It’s a very special curry you see. Not because of some secret ingredient but because my mother never cooked meat, so egg curry was a weekend staple in our house all year round. So, my dear friends, this curry brings back warm memories of my mother. A recipe I hold dear to my heart that I wanted to share with all of you today on my mom's 12th death anniversary, which was yesterday. Continue Reading

Dahi Methi Murg

Methi also called fenugreek is generally a winter vegetable in India. Here, in BC it is more readily available from spring to summer than in winter. I freeze most of it to be used in winter for chapattis and to flavor curries. Like cilantro, methi (fenugreek) is a plant whose seeds and leaves (fresh and dried) appear in variety of curries, marinades, vegetable and meat dishes as I did today in Dahi Methi Murg. It is an easy to put together dish and favorite of most indians who loves the ... Continue Reading

Lotus Root Kofta Curry: Weekend Brunch

Lotus root is an underwater rhizome of the lotus flower. With its crunchy texture, sweet taste, richness in dietary fiber and nutrients it is very much edible as a vegetable. Although it is not as commonly used in India but it is much relished in Punjab and Kashmir states in a variety of stews, stir fries, pickles, kebabs and curries. In a country like India where a large population is vegetarian, koftas from different vegetables is very common. I made lotus root  kofta curry for our ... Continue Reading
