Vegetarian Scotch Eggs

This recipe is inspired by the vegetarian koftas (Indian meatballs) my mom used to make when I was growing up. I have tried to elevate it into meatless scotch eggs with a layer of mince soya made of split chickpeas and paneer. The rhubarb sauce adds a punch to the dish. All these indian flavors are sure to tickle your taste buds!

Vietnamese Spicy Eggplant & Mint Soup

Vietnamese Spicy Eggplant & Mint Soup

I had a wonderful soup at Long’s Provencal Restaurant in downtown Seattle. It was so good, I knew I had to try to replicate it at home. I tried doing a search for it online, but no luck…so, I came up with my own recipe and it tastes pretty darn close to the one at the restaurant!
