Garlic Chutney (rajasthani style)

This is a fine example of one of the very hot chutneys and pickles that are consumed at the region of Rajasthan. This amazing chutney is made of kachri . If you are unable to find kachri, you can increase the garlic by the same amount (9 oz/250 g).If you find this chutney too hot balance the flavor with 1 tbsp ketchup kachri you will find in Indian stores specially stores who keep Gujarati and Rajasthani spices..



1 cup vegetable oil 
1 tsp cumin seed 
5 oz (125 g) garlic, roughly chopped 
21/2 oz (75 g) dried red chilies, soaked in 
1 cup water, drained and made into a paste
1/3 cup malt vineger 
2 tbsp salt 
1 tbsp red chili powder 
9 oz (250 g) kachri (see above), coarsely powderd
3 tbsp sugar, or to taste 


Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the cumin seeds, and, when they crackle, add the garlic. Fry until it
begins to turn golden.
Add the chili paste, vinegar, salt, and chili powder. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5–6 minutes.

Add the kachri if you have some and cook the chutney for a further 12–15 minutes or until the fat separates out and comes to the top.
Check the seasoning and add the sugar, if required. Remove from the heat and allow to cool  .

This chutney can be eaten cold or hot with bajre ka rotla

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting.

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
