A can of fruit can be transformed into a special fruit salad with very little effort. Here, lychees are enhanced with ginger and the zest and juice of fresh lime for a tropical flavour, then tossed with crisp apple, oranges and black grapes from the fruit bowl.
Use any soft fruit in season for this slightly tangy medley of flavours, a perfect follow-on to a spicy main course.
Colourful and packed with flavours, this thick, flat omelette, called a tortilla in Spanish, tastes good served at any temperature. The classic recipe contains only potatoes, onions and eggs, but this version has extra vegetables and ham added. Serve with a leafy green salad.
This is an easy dal to make on a vegetarian night. It tastes good with rice and is my favourite Indian food! I look forward to my Tuesdays dal chawaal nights!
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.
A vegetarian soup lover's delight - here's a twist to the same old dal!
I loved crunchy, spicy fried roti with a cup full of cool raita. Great for when you have rotis left over.
Peanut chutney powder is called Shenga Hindi in North Karnataka. You can sprinkle this powder on curries, rice or dosas.
Here's a delicious dessert for the whole family. I've used sugar substitutes for diabetics. You can adjust the sugar according to taste.
This light and fresh fruit salad is perfect to serve for brunch, at a picnic, or for a healthy afternoon snack!
