Olive oil or butter ......... 2tbsp + to brush


Slit eggplants horizontally and scoop it nicely with a vegetable scooper , (vegetable scooper is a very usefull kitchen tool you can find a nice one at amazon ) chop pulp nicely in small pieces and keep aside . Set grill basket to grill eggplant .

To Grill Long Eggplant:

Grilling long eggplant is easy because there isn’t a lot of slicing involved. Simply cut the eggplant in half. You can even leave the stem on and cut it in half, too, though most people remove it.
Spray the eggplants lightly with olive ,canola oil or butter . I like to also spray the grill to prevent sticking. I used a vegetable grill basket similar to this better-looking one at Amazon, which kept them from falling through the grill. Watch your eggplants carefully, turning them long before you think they’re done because they will burn in the blink of an eye. (Eggplant should not be over cooked )

For topping

Heat oil in a skillet add sesame seeds stir and add onion ,green chilli , garlic and ginger cook for few min and add chopped eggplant pulp cook properly till done add tomatoes and salt , red chilli powder and sugar cook for another 3-4 min till tomatoes are cooked properly and turn into saucy texture , add little cheese in it if you want cheesy texture .

How to proceed

Arrange grill eggplants in a baking tray fill it with sauce and topped with cheese , bake for 4-5 min or till cheese melt , garnish with green coriander serve hot with garlic bread or Indian flat bread .

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.

Gur chana / jaggery coated roasted chickpeas

Very tasty, crunchy yet healthy snack for kids, full of protein . I often make this crunchy delight for munching. 
 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.
This recipe is from my mother in law's cook book , my mom In law was an excellent cook and being a panjabi, her excellency was panjabi cuisine. She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
