Black Channa Curry/Gotila

A black chana gravy or curry is a popular recipe in most of the Indian homes, but have you ever tried making the recipe with partially grounded chana? Try this as an alternative - this inspiration is from green peas daal which is also cooked in similar style. In this the entire chana is not left whole, but half of it is made in paste and the remaining half in the usual way. This gives the curry a very unique taste.

Paneer Mastani (Based on two kind of gravy)

Paneer is one dish which we surely make if we are inviting someone for lunch or dinner. This weekend I was in a mood to have paneer but not in the usual way so did a little experiment and made paneer using two types of gravy – first gravy I made using tomatoes to give that punch and tanginess to paneer and other one I made using almonds and cashews so that it has that richness and creaminess. All I can say is that family members were blown away with the two contrasting gravies and the flavours were just out of this world. This recipe is little time consuming and indulgent but it never hurts to spend that little extra time in kitchen once in a while. If you are looking for something different to make next time you have guests coming over, then definitely try this recipe it will surely be a hit with all the age groups. 

 Note: Prepare the paneer in the last after making the two gravies as paneer tends to get hard. If you want soft paneer then roasting the paneer should be the last step.

Veg cheese Quesadillas

Quesadilla is a quick snack or a light meal. It is an original Mexican dish, where they put lots of cheese and beans, but to give it a desi twist, I have made some variants and given it an Indian Kitchen flavor.
