Masala Bell Pepper Curry, which is a Hyderabadi-style dish. Hyderabad dishes are very spicy and aromatic. For me, bell pepper curry represents these dishes well.

“Grilled Veggie Healthy Bowl” is inspired by my daughter-in-law, who enjoys light, fresh, and healthy meals. She suggested I do this video after trying my recipe out. It’s hard to believe something this healthy makes such a delicious and filling meal! In this recipe, I grilled asparagus, broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes. I then toss the grilled veggies with spiced chickpeas and a homemade ginger dressing. The ginger dressing definitely adds a kick to the flavor. This bowl is also pleasing to the eyes as it’s filled with colorful vegetables and the chickpeas add some texture, in addition to protein! This dish vegan and gluten-free. This makes for a great lunch. Or you can serve this as a side dish or make a wrap using tortillas or flatbread.

Guavas, or “amrood” in Hindi, are simply delicious and probably one of my favorite fruits! This year I have an abundance of guavas growing in my backyard. I like to sprinkle chaat masala on guavas. The spiciness really brings out its flavor. Since I have so many delicious guavas, I decided it was time for me to make Guava Sweet and Sour Curry (Amrood Ki khati Methi Sabji).

Pithla (Besan Curry)

Dal (Lentils), Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetables Curry / Gravy, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pithla is a variation of Kadhi. Kadhi is made in many ways. In North India, Kadhi is made like a thick soup with pakoras dumplings. Another popular variation is Gujarati Kadhi, which is sweet and sour and made watery with a soup-like consistency. When first time I had gujrati Kadhi, I thought it was yogurt hot and spicy drink, and enjoyed very much, still my perception has not changed. Pithla, however, is thick in consistency. Sometimes I call this is Besan Ki Sabji. This is a quick and easy recipe to make. Pithla is made with few ingredients. It’s also gluten-free and vegan. Traditionally Pithla is served garnished with hot ghee (clarified butter). Pithla is a complete and satisfying meal.
