I first tried this curry in a restaurant in Bangalore. I loved it so much that I asked all my friends if they knew anyone from Mangalore who could share the recipe with me. Finally, one of my friends came through. Below is an adaptation of her mother’s recipe. If you like peppery curries and tamarind, you are sure going to love this style of curry. Serve with steamed plain rice or with chapati.
This is a typical Punjabi recipe that is enjoyed with rice by all!
This is my favourite family recipe! My kids don't eat channa daal so I cheat and mush up the entire contents in a mxie or with a hand blender so they don't know the difference! I make a whole pressure cooker of it and take it to work as a soup. It tastes good with either rice or roti as well.
From Amritsar to Chennai, this recipe for ever popular Chhole goes great with rice, naan, bhature or even aloo tikkis! Slather on some imli chutney and they're great even in sandwiches!

This 'Safed Gosht' is my father-in-law’s recipe. He loves strong flavours and cooks this curry with lots of garam masala and garlic. This year, I'll cook it for him and Papa. Happy Father's Day!
I love the taste of methi. It has an astringent taste and a slight bitterness that many people find too strong, but I am happy that there are many methi lovers out there. I really like pairing methi with chicken.
This recipe for Gajar halwa uses a pressure cooker to cook the carrots. This saves a lot of time, and the end result is very delicious.

This is a perfect one-dish meal, cooked in a pressure cooker. I especially like it on a cold day when I feel like something to warm me up. Or when I have a sore throat and need something soothing.

My husband will prefer to cook this soup on his own with no help from me. This is an excellent comfort food when someone in the family has a cold.

A non-vegetarian's delight, a bowl of this soup will keep you warm and cozy during the harsh winter days of Rajasthan.
Kori Rotti is a Mangalorean speciality. Kori means chicken, and rottis, in this case, are not the traditional chapattis or rotis. They are a special kind of bread, which are made of rice paste and then dried, so quite hard and crispy and are made into sheets that are then broken into pieces. These rottis, when soaked by the chicken curry, absorb it and turn quite soft. A real taste and texture sensation!
