Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes)
Aloo Palak is a versatile side dish that is a great complement to any meal. Aloo (potatoes) and Palak (spinach) are two vegetables I always have in my kitchen. Potatoes we all know are used in so many ways and have endless recipes. I also use spinach in many dishes. I thought I had done this recipe a long time ago, but today I made this dish for my family after some time and they enjoyed it very much and asked me if I have done this video recipe. I was looking on my website and realized I have not done this recipe yet. This is a common recipe, but this is my version of Aloo Palak. Adding fenugreek seeds and besan (gram flour) kicks off the flavor to the dish. For me and Alex, this is a comfort dish. This recipe is also vegan and gluten free. I serve this as a side dish, or I enjoy rolling it in a Roti or Paratha to make a to-go lunch. Alex especially enjoys making grilled cheese sandwiches filled with leftover Aloo Palak.Add to favorites

Avocado Paratha, these days I’m spending a lot of time at home, so I decided to experiment in the kitchen. I had one extra avocado left after making some guacamole dip. Avocados seem to be very popular these days most often served as “Avocado Toast”. I decided to put an Indian twist and use the extra avocado in delicious flavorful parathas. It actually turned out great and I enjoyed, but I think it needed a few tweaks. I added some extra spices and it turned out even better.Add to favorites
Coconut Paratha is a delicacy, I make parathas with so many different fillings, but I will say this is very different from others. Coconut Paratha can be served with the main meal, but one can also enjoy this as a snack with a hot cup of chai. One day, my younger sister Kumkum, who is an excellent cook, called me from India and told me that I must try this coconut paratha, that I will love it. So, in fact, this is her recipe. She is also a big help who I can call when I get lost with the new recipes I am trying. She always has good suggestions. This paratha has a complex flavor. Usually, stuffed parathas are not very thin, but coconut paratha is very thin and mildly spiced. They taste best when they are served hot. The paratha is crispy from outside and its inside filling has a different texture that is well balanced. Coconut parathas also taste as delicious when they are served at room temperature with pickle.Add to favorites

Khasta Kachori Besan
Khasta kachori is a delicacy from north India. Khasta kachori is a spicy puffed pastry. Kachories are made with a variety of different filling, and I have many recipes for Khasta Kachori. They are my favorite over samosa. Maybe one of the reasons is I can prepare them even a few days before and can be served at room temperature and served many different ways, even serving as chaat. Traditionally kachori is sold at HALWAI (a sweet and snack shop). Today, I am using spicy besan filling. These mouthwatering Kachories can be served as a snack, chaat or part of the main meal, making the meal exotic.Add to favorites
