Indian Dishes

Mushroom Pepper Curry

If you have been to the states of South India and had the pleasure of savouring food in the restaurants there, you would have then most certainly come across a menu item that involves pepper and mushroom in some combination. In most restaurants Mushroom Pepper Varuval/ Mushroom Pepper Fry is […]

Methi Dal

India’s diverse cuisine is a thing of wonder. It’s amazing how each state and region boasts of a cuisine that’s exquisite and full of history. From appetisers to desserts each cuisine will wow and leave you wanting more. Dal (Lentils) in some form of the other is one constant in […]

Paneer Masala (Keto Friendly)

On my recent trip to India, we went to our favourite local restaurant that serves absolutely divine North Indian food. Our family has been patrons at the restaurant for almost a decade now; birthdays, casual dinner out or even milestone celebrations Shree Mithai remains our top pick. Of the many […]

Masala Pav

Chowing down street food is one of my favourite things to do when I am home for a holiday, in India. It’s a rather special experience to see the chaatwala (the snack/ chaat vendor) put together your chaat of choice, right in front of your eyes. It is amazing to […]

Peanut Chutney

Any south Indian tiffin is nearly incomplete without chutney. It amazes me how many varieties of chutnies there are to accompany the humble idly or dosai. Growing up in a Tamil household, we were always served some chutney or the other to accompany the humble idlies or dosais for breakfast/tiffin. […]

Ginger Chai

Chai, glorious chai! What is chai? Well, I am glad you asked! Chai is tea. Yes, that is all that it is. ‘Chai’ is the name the people of Indian subcontinent call it. Nope, it is not chai tea because it will simply make it tea tea. Something doesn’t sound […]

Methi Malai Paneer (Video Recipe)

A luxurious curry that is a perfect marriage of cream, paneer and methi (fenugreek leaves). This is a variation of one of my favourite offerings from Indian restaurants – Methi Malai Matar. The addition of matar AKA green peas is absolutely divine but on a ketogenic lifestyle, one has to […]

Makhani Sauce (Keto Friendly)

What’s a good curry without a good base to give it that depth and intense flavour? There are so many different bases or sauces to make a killer curry! You will find that in most curries tomatoes, spices and chilli are regular additions. Tomatoes when cooked with the right spices […]

Spicy Cauliflower Roast (Keto Friendly)

Cauliflower is one of the most preferred vegetable sources for the ketogenic and low carb lifestyles. The cruciferous vegetable is a powerhouse of nutrition, loaded with the vitamin and mineral goodness. A bit of Google research also tells me that it has a host of other things that make it […]

Makhani Veg Curry (Keto Friendly)

Two magical words. Buttery. Curry.  Mmmmm…that’s right, beautiful combination of vegetables are married together with a buttery sauce to make an absolutely delicious dish. Spoon it with hot rice or mop it up with naan, you’ll be hit with the buttery deliciousness of the curry. There is very minimal use […]

Palak Paneer (Keto friendly)

Comfort food does not get better than this delicious North Indian curry. Soft paneer cooked in a rich and creamy spinach gravy, this versatile curry makes a perfect accompaniment to naans, rice, rotis or just on its own. Palak paneer gets made at home quite often. It makes one of […]
