Chaat Bites

Appetizers are typically finger foods that are easy to pick up and eat while waiting for the main course. So I decided to come up with an appetizer that has all the flavors of a traditional chaat and at the same time has the convenience of being able to be made ahead of time and is also a finger food. After some thinking, I came up with these yummy Chaat Bites – a crowd pleaser for sure!

Eggplant and Mushroom Wrap with Roasted Red Pepper and Sun Dried Tomato Chutney

User Submitted Recipes, , , , , , , , , ,

I was inspired by the ingredient: Bell Pepper and Eggplant. Red Bell Peppers are so delicious and sweet and roasting them brings out even more flavor and sweetness. Adding Sun Dried Tomatoes adds even more intense flavor. I’m trying to get my husband to stop eating meat, so I have to cook things with a lot of flavor and meaty textures. This chutney has very bold and robust flavor, the eggplant and mushrooms provide the meaty consistency, while the crumbled paneer adds protein.

Grilled Eggplant Salsa Wrap

User Submitted Recipes, , , , , , , , , ,

I bought a new small Indoor Electric grill (George Foreman grill) this summer and have tried several grilling recipes – the most hit was the Pineapple grilled with Honey sauce – which was actually my own accidental invention. So I have used it for the eggplant-tomato-green peppers filling. The dressing is the sauce filtered out from the grill machine spread over the tortilla before putting the filling! The wrap is filled with fresh romaine lettuce and pepper jack cheese! Hope you will like it.

Kathi Roll

User Submitted Recipes, , , , , ,

Me and my husband love to try different kinds of food and I enjoy trying out new recipes. Manjula aunty’s recipes are my favourite. I love the Malai Kofta recipe the most and I recommend all my friends to try her recipes. It comes out really well and tastes amazing. She never uses onion but I add them where ever I feel like as my husband loves onions. One day I registered myself for the free newsletter and got this email to participate in the contest. I explored the rules and noticed that I had to make a cold or hot wrap using roti or tortilla. I thought of this recipe as we have kathi roll in restaurants all the time and it tastes yummy. I tried it using my own style of ingredients and veggies along with Indian chutney. It came out really well and my family enjoyed it very much. I hope everyone else like it too. Its healthy meal for kids and I hope you enjoy it.

Spinach and Broccoli Kofta

In this Spinach and Broccoli Kofta, I have used Broccoli and Spinach as a variation which makes it more healthy especially for kids. As my kids do not eat broccoli and spinach on their own I often try to mix and match different vegetables to make it more tempting for them. The crunchiness of peanuts gives it a unique taste. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
