Haak Saag

Another simple recipe of kashmiri cuisine goes well with rice, Haak saag...Indian food is full of magical spices as I mentioned earlier, all spices which we use in Indian food have medicinal value....aroma and flavor of these spices does magic when blended properly. Indian curries are very aromatic and healthy. Today I am sharing a very special kashmiri green dish with you all, named Haak Saag. kashmiri saag is very simple make...this is the way they make it ..

Haak Saag

1 kg - Spinach (palak) or Kashmir Spinach or kaanyi haak or kohlrabi greens or collard greens, cleaned, thick stem removed and leaves left whole,


 3 to 4 cups - water
 1 tsp - salt
 8 - whole Red Chilies /green chilies
1 tsp - asafetida (hing)
1 tbsp - oil
 2 tbsp - Mustard oil

Put a large pot of water on to boil, and add salt, chillies, asafoetida
and oil.
When the water comes to a boil, add the greens and cook for a minute.
Arrange in a dish and pour mustard oil over it.
Serve hot with steamed rice and yogurt.

My version of this recipe , I use 1/2 kg spinach and 1/2 kg haak saag(Kashmiri spinach) to make this ...
Just remove the stem and torn leaves roughly . In a large pan boil 1-2 cups of water

Add salt as per taste , put  asafetida ,one tsp of oil and add greens in it boil it for a minute or till leaves become tender add 1 tsp of  chickpea flour or besan and cook till creamy texture arise. Keep aside .
In a sauce pan heat 1 tbsp mustard oil add 2-4 kashmiri whole red chilli and 4-5 whole garlic pods ( slightly crushed ) put this on prepared haak saag.
actually i like it this way this addition of flour bind it and give creamy texture and enhance taste also you can use ether of them .
Serve hot with roti or rice.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth .....it 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 


Ingredients:

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

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.

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…
