This is a classic Andhra dish consisting of roasted eggplant (brinjal) in a sweet and sour stew. The sweetness is from jaggery and the sourness is from tamarind. This pulusu is an excellent accompaniment to patholi, or mudda pappu (plain hard-cooked dal). I also like it just by itself with plain rice and ghee.
Bright green spinach and golden apricots add rich colour and flavour to this easy grain, nuts and vegetable dish. Serve it instead of rice, with dishes that have plenty of sauce.
This Catalan way of cooking pasta in a thick, fresh tomato sauce makes a rich side dish with meat or fish dishes.
This is an easy curry. It's rich, creamy, mildly spiced and extremely flavourful. Serve with naan and rice.
Use fresh mushrooms for this dish. They add a wonderfully concentrated flavour to this fast and easy dish. Serve with creamy pasta and a tender tomato salad. Delicious!
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.
This is a very easy recipe to make and tastes good especially if you like tomatoes! I picked it up from an Aunt and enjoy it by itself or with rice.
A sweet curry prepared with ripe mangoes. Very widely used in Kerala during the mango season.

This is one of my favourite childhood foods to eat. It tastes good with rice or roti!
