Vegetarian Scotch Eggs

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!

Healthy, delicious and velvety; this versatile carrot-ginger soup is perfect for any occasion. It can be served hot or cold and I must admit that I love it chilled, as it is so light and refreshing. If serving chilled, refrigerate at least two hours before service.

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sesame Chicken is one of my all time favorite Chinese take-out dishes. Despite my affinity for it, the summer is slowly approaching and I’m doing everything I can to cut unnecessary calories and fat, without compromising flavor.

Even though this is a healthier choice than traditional Chinese take-out, no flavor or comfort factor is compromised.

Mango Salad with Miso-Sesame Dressing

This recipe came out of my cravings for something bright and refreshing but also something with a depth of flavour. What developed was an idea to create my take on a mango salad (Thai) with a miso-based dressing (Japanese). After making it the first time, my mother frequently asks for it to accompany our meals.
