وجبة خفيفة ولا أسهل! جربيها اليوم #Repost @riotofflavours Snacks can be healthy too! I love to snack on vegetable sticks with a simple labneh dip - what a great natural snack. You get the goodness of vitamins from the veggies and the probiotics from the labneh! And sometimes flavour adds some fun to it!

For those of you wanting a simple recipe for this chicken curry, here it is. 1/2 kg chicken 2 medium onions sliced Whole garam masala - 1/2 inch cinnamon, 2-3 cloves, 1 bay leaf, 1-2 whole cardamom pods 1 large tomato 1 tbsp garlic paste 1 small green chilli minced 1/2 inch ginger minced 1/4 tsp turmeric powder 1 tsp chilli powder 1/2 tsp coriander powder 1/2 tsp cumin powder Garam masala powder to taste 1/3 cup yoghurt 1 tbsp malai or cream (I used it fresh off the top of boiled milk) Salt to taste 1 tbsp Kasuri methi or dried fenugreek Method: In a shallow pan or kadhai fry the onion, ginger, chilli, garlic paste, and whole garam masala till the onions are mushy and brown. Add the dry masalas at this point and sauté till the raw smell disappears. Then add the tomatoes and cover and cook for 10 min on medium low heat till the tomatoes are mushy and almost one with the rest of the masala. At this point add the chicken (marinated in salt and turmeric). Let it roast for a bit with the masalas and turn as required to ensure that it is even sealed. Now add the yoghurt and cream mixed together. With salt to taste. Cover and cook to the required consistency. Top with kasuri methi and serve hot! Would be amazing with parathas. #instarecipe #chickencurry #indianfood #indianfoodbloggers #indianfoodrecipes #riotofflavoursrecipe #mumbaifoodblogger #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger

A long while ago I lived in Gamdevi. One of my friends used to stay on the other side of the grant road bridge towards Bombay Central. Sometimes when I visited, she would order palak paneer and butter naan from a nearby restaurant called Kalpana. Their Palak Paneer is the best I’ve ever had! It comes complete with a lehsuni tadka on the top! Its morish, creamy and delicious. I recently made Palak Paneer and tried to emulate the flavours and I was delighted that they were spot on! #indianfoodbloggers #riotofflavoursrecipe #mumbaifoodbloggers #culinarybloggers #culinaryblog #indianfood #palakpaneer #vegetarianfood

We’ve been having rather heavy meals at home of late - so this evening, I decided to make one of my favourite and super easy chicken dishes - grilled chicken with caramelised vegetables! #instarecipe #chickenandveggies #indianfoodbloggers #mumbaifoodbloggers #riotofflavoursrecipe #culinaryblogger #culinaryblog Recipe as below: 4 chicken leg and thigh Marinate in: 1 tsp chilli powder (or more if you like it spicy) 1 tsp coriander and cumin powder 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 1 tsp garam masala powder 1 handful chopped fresh coriander leaves 1 tbsp garlic paste I tsp honey Salt and pepper to taste 2 tbsp curry leaf infused oil with the crispy curry leaf Vegetables: 2 onions cut into rings 2 carrots cut into chunks 1 packet mushrooms cut into chunks Method: Marinate the chicken with all ingredients mentioned for a minimum of 30 min. Chop the vegetables and set aside. When you are ready to cook the chicken, preheat your oven at 200C. Place the chicken on a screaming hot griddle pan and let it char on either side before putting it into the oven for 45 minutes (depending on the size of the chicken - I do 30 min for drumsticks) In the remaining marinade mix in the veggies and grill in batches on the hot griddle pan - add some oil to help the process along. Add all the veggies to the grilling chicken in the last 10 minutes of the cooking time and leave the oven door open a little (block with a piece of aluminium foil between the oven and the door) to allow the steam to escape. Let the chicken rest for 15 minutes before devouring.

I just had one of my most comforting meals this year - and it was a simple combination of steamed rice, Ghee and a vegetable. If you see my story, I asked you all for tips to work with Kantola or Spine Gourd or Fagla. And boy were they all worth it. In the end I made a weird combo of upkari (stir fry) and talasani (stir fry with chilli and garlic) - both Chitrapur Saraswat versions of a vegetable preparation - that was not weird at all! The texture of the vegetable and its flavour were mind blowing - bringing back a vague memory of me eating its fried version way way back. I devoured it with plain steamed rice topped with Ghee (just like my dad used to) and felt so much comfort after a long long time. #seasonalvegetables #kantola #vegetarian #indiancuisine #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #indianfood #indianfoodblogger #indiancuisine #chitrapursaraswatfood #riotofflavoursrecipe

It’s amazing how beautifully labneh pairs with both sweet and savoury food. I used @puckarabia labneh in this Caramelised Honey, Fig and Pistachio dessert where it offers a beautiful salty balance against the sweetness of the figs and honey. And of course the pistachios offer some textural relief too! Plus, it’s super easy to make within a few minutes! #natural_and_delicious #puckarabia #riotofflavoursrecipe Ingredients 3 ripe figs, halved 1 tsp butter 3 tbsp honey a pinch of cinnamon 2-3 tbsp @puckarabia labneh 1-2 tbsp chopped pistachio Method In a pan, put in the butter till melted. Add the honey and let it caramelise well. Add a pinch of cinnamon. Put in the figs cut-side down and let them cook till lightly golden. Once they are done, place them on a plate and plop the labneh in the middle. Add the pistachios and drizzle the rest of the sauce over the entire dessert. Serve warm!

I love stuffed capsicums in any form. My favourite is my mom’s. And a close second is this Stuffed Bell Pepper with brown rice, mushrooms and a cheese sauce. The quickest way to make the cheese sauce, I found, is to use Puck’s Four Cheese Sauce. And this makes for a quick and easy lunch that doesn't need much preparing because the ready made sauce makes a world of difference. I also added a bit of the cheese sauce on the top for a nice burnished taste and for good measure. Recipe will be up soon on @puckarabia website. #TheSauceSecret #puckarabia #riotofflavoursrecipe #vegetarian

I think I’m in love with the @puckarabia Four Cheese Sauce. It’s super easy to use and makes some recipes even easier to make - especially when you don’t have fancy cheese at hand! Take for instance this corn and spinach frittata that I made recently. Dotted with some beef pepperoni, I whisked in some Puck Four Cheese Sauce to make one of the easiest breakfasts or quickest lunches ever! #TheSauceSecret #puckarabia #sponsoredpost #lovecreatingrecipes #recipecreation #riotofflavoursrecipe

Sometimes, shortcuts are super fun and convenient. I often refrain from cooking something elaborate on weekdays after a hectic day at work. But Puck’s Lemon Butter Sauce comes as a fragrant and super easy solution to this issue. I made this Chicken Schnitzel recently and all I had to do was warm the sauce and add it to the dish just before eating it! No stirring, flavour adjusting or extra effort was required! #TheSauceSecret #riotofflavoursrecipe #puckarabia

When it comes to meat, I’ve always thought that chicken is at the bottom of the pyramid. Oh yes, it is a beautiful carrier of flavours and when it comes to the diverse recipes that you can create with it, it is a very forgiving meat. But I always thought it was boring - it doesn’t have much flavour in itself. But then maybe we’ve been cooking it the wrong way - constantly adding more flavour to it while simply ignoring that somewhere in that meat is lots of flavour. Today, I grilled chicken on the bone with just salt, pepper and butter with some garlic and chopped up chillies sautéed in the same butter, and boy was I in for a surprise - the chicken shone and how! The meat was juicy, the salt and pepper worked beautifully with the chicken fat to bring out its umami flavour, and there was a sweetness to it that I’ve possibly never tasted before - and trust me I have grilled enough chicken to be a judge of that. Recipe: - 250 gm chicken on the bone w/ skin on - 2 tbsp butter - 2 red chillies cut up into chunks - salt and pepper to taste - 1 tbsp minced garlic Method: - marinate the chicken with the salt, pepper and garlic - heat the butter in a cast iron pan and put in the chicken with the garlic and chilli - fry in the pan on both sides for 10 minutes - finish it off in a pre-heated oven (180 C) - serve with a side of sautéed greens - I used broccoli sautéed in the same pan - French beans would be a lovely option too!

#DalDivas - a day dedicated to dals! How is it possible that no one thought of this before? Dal is one of my greatest loves! No matter how many places I may love to visit and the various cuisines I love to experiment with, when I need a warm hug, I always come back to Dal Chawal. ‪Dals I love: Dali Thoy (Konkani), Dal Gosht (Bohri), Dal Fry (The Pakistani version made of Chana dal), Maa Ki Dal (black dal), Amti (maharashtrian/Konkani), Sambhaar (my mom’s version is the best!), my own double tadka dal. Celebrate #DalDivas ‬on January 25th and put up pics, recipes and posts of your own favourite dal recipes! #indianfooddays #indianfood #dal #lentils #indianfoodblogger #dubaifoodblogger #riotofflavoursrecipe #culinaryblogger #culinaryblog

Happy New Year! I am totally guilty of having ignored my Instagram feed and my blog since a while now! Of course, I was super active on Insta Stories - sometimes I wonder whether all these are a huge distraction from my main focus - bringing amazing recipes and food experiences for you all. Anyway, this post is a small attempt to get the mojo back. Last night I posted an #instastoryrecipe on how to cook with lentils. And thank you all of you who messaged me about it.

I came to know about the Bohra style Patveliya Gosht much later in my married life. And, the very idea of putting two of my favourite ingredients together is just so fascinating! I made this in a simple gravy. Here in Dubai, getting colocasia leaves (the leaves used to make Patveliya or Patra) is quite difficult - and the tinned version from @mothers.recipe is much more easily available. As a result I went with that. I cut up the tinned Patveliya into chunks and fried them in a bit of oil in the pressure cooker - I then took them out and sautéed the masala for the Mutton, added the meat pieces, cooked it completely and then added the Patveliya back into the mixture cooked it down and bit and served it hot. The first step ensured that the besan mixture from the Patveliya added flavour into the gravy from the beginning. As a result it imparted a sweet, sour flavour to the robust curry. A lovely rendition of a curry - if I may say so. #bohrafood #bohracuisine #indianfood #indiancuisine #curry #riotofflavoursrecipe #muttoncurry #uaebloggers #culinaryblogger #culinaryblog #indianfoodblogger #f52heat

I love experimenting with fresh vegetables in different ways. So, I picked up these gorgeous baby carrots, roasted whole garlic till it was soft and sweet and so delicious, and put them together with a shortcrust crumble base. I mashed the roasted garlic with Puck Thick Cream to create one of the most amazing elements in the dish. The velvety texture and mild flavour of the cream was a perfect accompaniment to the garlic. In fact, that's what makes it ideal for both sweet and savory dishes. Check out what cream works best with your recipe by checking the link in my profile. #AmazeWithCreams #brandcollaboration #puckarabia #riotofflavoursrecipe #culinaryblogger #culinaryblog #uaebloggers #dubaifoodblogger

If you don't like Eggplant, I promise you, with a good dose of this Turkish Labneh from @puckarabia, you'll begin to love it! I love how eggplant changes in texture and flavour the moment you salt and then grill it - so much umami! I picked up these beautiful organic eggplants and then scooped out the middle and filled it with sauteed onions, garlic and the scooped out meat. Added some paprika (both smoked and spicy) and pistachios and stuffed it back into the grilled eggplant. Topped with the Turkish Labneh and some Za'atar, these are the perfect vegetarian party pleaser! #شهية_و_صحية #puckarabia #labneh #vegetarian #appetizer #mezze #eggplant #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #uaebloggers #riotofflavoursrecipe

Sometime ago, #ChutneyDay (introduced by @rushinamg) was being celebrated in India - and while I couldn’t contribute as such, I did write a long ode to my Mum’s Lashne Chitni (Konkani for Garlic Chutney) and my childhood obsession with it. If you read it on Facebook or Twitter - you’ll know what I’m talking about! I finally made the chutney - made of dry coconut, chillies (I used the traditional Karnataka Byadgi), lots of garlic and dry mango powder! I let it sit for one night and the moment I opened the dabba, I was instantly transported back to my childhood when I’d sneak into the kitchen and eat spoonfuls of it! Then, I promptly ate it with bread and butter! Delicious! The recipe is up on the blog - go check it out - link in profile! #chutneyday #chutney #indianfood #riotofflavoursrecipe #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #dubaifoodbloggers #uaebloggers #indianfoodbloggers #chitrapursaraswat #chitrapursaraswatcuisine #csb

I love a good apple or chicken pot pie! A few months after I came to Dubai, I was craving a good chicken pot pie and the one I finally got to eat was an apology to the dish. So I proceeded to make it quite a few times, always trying to better my previous effort. I made this yesterday and it was delicious! The crust was perfectly crumbly, the filling was just the right bit of chicken and mushroom umami, spices and the freshness of bright green parsley. Do you make any dish that you haven’t found a better (and more affordable) version of outside? Tell me all about it. (Ps. I make my own cakes for that reason too) #dubaifoodbloggers #riotofflavoursrecipe #chickenpie #partyfood #uaebloggers #culinaryblogger #culinaryblog #pie #food52

Eggs - I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like eggs. And I hope I dont😱. I love eggs and can eat them everyday - I literally do! And one of my favourite recipes is the one my mother had taken from our neighbour back when we were kids. Don’t you love such recipes? Our neighbour was a Bengali lady who used to make some delicious food! I still remember her Macher Chops! So when Amma tasted her Egg Curry - she took the recipe and it then became a family favourite. I have documented the recipe in one of my old posts on the blog. Sharing the link in my profile since @instagram still doesn’t allow direct linking!

Yesterday was one of those days when I needed a clean meal - especially before what would be nothing less than a feast today to celebrate the Bohri New Year (30 items and counting!)! So I made a simple meal of grilled chicken with a peri peri and garlic spice rub on top of some silky cauliflower purée, with sautéed vegetables! A perfect meal! In contrast, lunch today is a masala Khichdi 🙈. #riotofflavoursrecipe #dubaifoodbloggers #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #grilled #grilledchicken #dinnerideas #foodblogger #uaebloggers #indianfoodbloggers

Garnishes are so important! They can literally make a dish sing if done just right. I love using coriander leaves in most of my curries and dals, but once in a while I go left of centre and try something out. I use a lot of Kasuri Methi (dried fenugreek) in the tempering for my dal or just rubbed between my hands on top of a curry, or slivers of fresh ginger and chillies which go a long way. I don't remember where I first saw this but from the time I started making chole (chickpea curry), I've loved garnishing it with onion rings lightly pickled in lime juice as they just start going blush pink. The texture of the onions completely changes and they become so delicious as they soak in the curry juices. Super delicious! What's your favourite garnish? #dubaifoodbloggers #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #riotofflavoursrecipe #uaebloggers #foodblogger #indianfood #indianfoodblogger #indianfoodbloggers #indiancuisine #sundaydinner

I've realised that I know just two Indian recipes for French beans and just two recipes across all cuisines for gavar - otherwise called Cluster Beans. Gavar is a thick, flat bean that is slightly bitter and quite fibrous. It is good for anemia, cardio health and also for diabetics, amongst other nutritious properties. But it is really important to cook this bean right! It needs flavours that add sweetness to the overall dish to cut through the bitterness! This Gavar Bateta dish is a classic Bohri recipe - simple flavours with the quintessential coriander powder that I've come to associate with Western India. It is served with Khichdi - which is unlike any other Khichdi I've had (a combination of rice, masoor dal, turmeric and salt). Quite a homely combination in my opinion 😊 The recipe will be on the blog soon! #uaebloggers #bohricuisine #bohrifood #riotofflavoursrecipe #vegetarianfood #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #foodblogger

If you visit any temple in South India - the offering given to all devotees is a sweet and often this dish called Sundal in bowls fashioned out of dried leaves. A simple preparation of chana or chickpeas flavoured with curry leaves and lots of fresh coconut. Often, the perfume of camphor and other incense in the temples permeates into the dish giving it a unique flavour. Today, I made this for lunch and it was delicious! The sweetness of the fresh coconut against the savoury flavour of tempered chickpeas makes for a heady combination! Head to my #instastories for the process and the recipe is as follows: 1 cup chickpeas (soaked overnight and cooked with salt and green chillies) 1 tbsp oil 1 tsp mustard seeds A pinch of asafoetida or hing 1/2 tsp cumin seeds 1/2 tsp urad dal 3-4 dried red chillies A handful of curry leaves Salt to taste 1/3 cup fresh grated coconut In a wok/Kadhai, put the oil and heat it. Then add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and urad dal. Once it splutters, add the red chillies and curry leaves. Now put in the cooked chick peas and sauté well. Adjust the salt and once it all comes together, garnish generously with the fresh sweet coconut. Serve hot! #uaebloggers #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #riotofflavoursrecipe #southindian #coconut

I don't like bananas as it is - and neither do I like sweet savoury food! But like everything there is an exception - and for me it is these savoury banana fritters that are just super easy to make and are a complete comfort dish for me (nostalgic for my childhood). This recipe is sweet and salty with a kick of spice and is delicious! The recipe is as follows: - 2 firm bananas (not over ripe) - 4 tbsp rice flour - 1.5 tsp chilli powder - salt to taste - oil to shall fry Process: Split the banana length wise and halve it. Coat it gently in the mixture of rice flour, chilli and salt and fry off in the oil! Be careful while turning them over - heat makes them go soft!

Simple cooking is all about minimal ingredients and maximum flavour. And that is my food philosophy, especially when it comes to vegetables! This Batata Talasani is one of the simplest potato recipes in my repertoire. It is a staple in any Chitrapur Saraswat household often served up with a delicious Jeera-Mirya Kadhi (a warm coconut curry of cumin seeds and peppercorns) and rice! This recipe requires potatoes/French beans/ivygourd, garlic, red chilli powder and a simple tempering! Check out my insta stories for the method and the blog for the recipe!

There is so much soul in local ingredients. These Date & Za'atar Roasted Carrots are a true reflection of this! The carrots were bought at the last day of @farmersmarketme and the date syrup and Za'atar were bought at a local Iranian roastery. This was topped with the brilliant Ashed Goat's Cheese from @deenaorganicfarmdairy . The sweet, syrupy and strong date and Za'atar Flavours gave the carrots so much oomph! And the funky cheese just rounded it all off so beautifully! This is just one of the Mediterranean-inspired dishes @amritaoflife and I conceptualised at our cookup today.

As a child I was constantly intrigued by new recipes. The first time I saw the recipe for chhole masala on TV, I knew I had to make it. I must have been all of 12 years old.

Chicken tikka meatballs with a cooling yoghurt sauce anyone? This was an experiment, which needs a little work flavour wise to make it more tikka-like, but for the first try, I was pretty happy! #riotofflavoursexperiment #culinaryblog #culinaryblogger #riotofflavoursrecipe #chicken #meatballs #uaebloggers

When you have a fridge chockablock with vegetables and you're unwell - the best thing to do is toss them up in garlic, olive oil, honey and smoked paprika and seasoning and roast them! Top with fresh chilli and feta! Delicious comfort food! These veggies are organic kohlrabi and purple organic carrots from the @thefarmersmarketme, aubergines and sweet potatoes! #glutenfree #riotofflavoursrecipe #uaebloggers #culinaryblogger #culinaryblog #vegetarian #roastveggies

Made this pasta in a creamy mushroom sauce after ages! Onions, mushrooms, chilli and white sauce - matches made in heaven. My version today was (of course) gluten-free.

Extremely nostalgic today - missing home and some special people. So its but natural for me to think of food that reminds me of home. This post is dedicated to my mum who's Stuffed Capsicums people would parcel and take home after a dinner party.

It's an amazing feeling when a recipe idea pops into your mind and captures you, and then when you execute it, it seems as though it was always meant to be. These Butter Chicken wings were such a lightbulb moment for me. And when they came out just the way I wanted them to, I was super elated. And it is just so simple to make!

Made this beautifully subtle cauliflower cream rice with butter poached cauliflower slices. Served with a deliciously deceptive roast chicken with rosemary, garlic and tomatoes and lots of homemade chicken stock. #rice #cauliflower #riotofflavoursrecipe #experiment #recipe #culinaryblogger #foodblogger #uaebloggers #dubailife

#HomeCooked - my simple recipe for a Honey and Lime Roast Chicken. This recipe is simple - just mix the marinade together, coat the chicken with it and grill for 30 minutes! It has a beautiful caramelised flavour - with a hint of zest and spice. #grilled #chicken #riotofflavoursrecipe #dubailife #uaebloggers
