    Threw this together in an attempt to make a wholesome vegetarian pasta meal for two while trying to make the most of the few ingredients I had in the fridge. The idea is pretty simple, feel free to add more vegetables and/or meat to this to make it even heartier. The squashed black beans make the sauce nice and thick, and the sour cream adds that extra oomph. This can also be substituted with Greek yogurt for a healthier version, and works just as well omitting it entirely.

    Girl-type comfort food. But guys, don't be afraid to approach! This works almost as well as a tub of ice-cream for drowning ludicrous sorrows, inextricable squabbles, non-existant hunger, unreasonable resentment, immature grumpiness, unnecessary annoyance, and gaaaawwwwd-i-need-chawwwwkklaate syndrome, but only if the instructions are followed carefully. One mistake and the whole thing is ruined!

    This version of the famous Indian Chaat (pronounce with the emphasis on the "aa", as in "aarmy") doesn't really do justice to it, but it sure is yummy anyway! (Chaat is a type of salad famous in the roadside food stalls in North India, particularly in Delhi, the capital of India) Mom concocted this recipe to stop me from eating junk in the evenings, and boy, it worked! This tastes very different if you use chaat masala (a spice blend), than if you don't, so if you like Indian food, do yourself a favour and buy some chaat masala! :) Note: Cook time does not include time for boiling the potatoes... use leftovers!

    And one more pumpkin recipe for Charishma. You can substitute eggplant for the pumpkin, but you will then have to use dried yellow lentils (moong dal) instead of Urad dal. Another variation is using grated carrots instead of pumpkin, and here you'll have to add a little water while cooking it. Or, you can just stick to this recipe :-)

    Recipe #56401

    Another of my mom's pumpkin recipes for Charishma. According to my mom yellow pumpkin (the Halloween kind) is best for this recipe, but I don't see why you can't try other varieties. Then again, I'm always the rebel ;-)

    First, you gotta try and pronounce the name of this dish!!! :-) Bitter gourd is a type of Asian squash (read, and is NOT my favourite, because, well, it's downright bitter! But there ARE a few people who love this potent veggie, my dad included! Known to have medicinal properties excellent for people with diabetes, there certainly are ways to make this palatable, and my mom knows just how. This is her very own recipe that my dad has wolfed down several times. This recipe has been posted by request for Charishma... hope you like it!

    I made this one evening when I was hungry and needed something hearty, no-fuss, quick and preferably healthy! This smoothie will really keep you going for hours, trust me!

    My mom made this for my 19th birthday (according to the Tamil calender, this year it's a day before my "real" birthday) and I was so touched and thrilled that she took the effort to make me something special that I would've posted this recipe even if it wasn't fabulous. Well, but you know what... it IS fabulous!!! The sweetness of this recipe is just right for me, but some of you may need to make this sweeter according to your personal tastes. My mom made this without the dates (which I don't like) and orange rind, but the original recipe includes them. Please note that prep. time does not include cooling time. This is from "Sweet Encounters" by Sanjeev Kapoor.

    Recipe #51059

    My mom has made this ever since I was a kid, and this dish has made MANY of my back-from-school snacks. What makes it special is that not only does it take only 10 minutes to prepare, but it's yummy and relatively healthy! Kesari is called so because of the colour that saffron gives it (kesar = orange, in Hindi). This dish is native to the state of Maharashtra, in west India. If saffron is hard to come by, you may omit it, but use it for authenticity.

    This interesting paratha is wonderful on cold winter nights, and is one of my favourite comfort foods. Parathas always bring back memories of Delhi winters with my cousins, long nights of talking, playing board games, and just having fun! You can adjust the spiciness of this recipe according to your taste. This is adapted from

    I wasn't quite sure what to call this, because while it is sort of a fruit salad, there's too much "liquid" in here to call that part the "dressing". This recipe has basically 4 components: yogurt, nut butter, sweetener, and fruit. The yogurt adds tartness, the nut butter adds richness and protein, and the sweetener... well, sweetens! Feel free to experiment with different fruits, yogurts, nut butters and sweeteners, and see what flavour appeals to you the most! With 8 grams of protein, this bowl-'o-nutrition is a great way to kickstart your day!

    Desperate for something soothing while battling with a runny nose, I made this today using whatever I had on hand, and relished every bit of it! This is great for the cold weather, and just the perfect remedy for red noses and itchy throats... and it tastes wonderful as well! Please note that microwave times with vary depending on the manufacturer.

    This rice dish takes very little time to prepare and most of the ingredients are found in the common kitchen. I found this recipe on and altered it to add that little "heat" I thought it needed. Serve this with a plain lentil dal (stew) or curry, or with a plain raita or cold yogurt.

    Crisp carrots and apples are coated with a dressing of citrus and ginger. A sprinkle of toasted nuts and coconut add crunch and color. This wonderfully refreshing salad is from

    This is one of the signature dishes of North India, and is spicy, aromatic, flavourful, and simply out of this world! For the authentic feel, try to stick to the original recipe ingredients as much as possible, but you may also use suitable substitutes as mentioned. This is from "Vegetable Delights" by Malini Bisen. Note: Prep. time does not include pre-soaking time for the beans.

    Recipe #47936

    Onions, garlic and basil add spice to tender eggplant in this rich and fantastic tasting tomato sauce, which goes a long way! Adjust the red pepper flakes according to your taste. This is from

    Recipe #47365

    Today my mom chose to make this recipe for my post-college meal, and the only thing I loved more than its taste was her thoughtfulness in selecting something that was fresh, healthy, nutritious, non-greasy... just the way I love my food! Thanks Mom! Note: This is from "Summer Cookery" by Sushma Shourie. Prep. time includes chilling time.

    I made this for mom today by just putting together her favourite ingredients, without even knowing what it would turn out to be! Yellow corn, green bell peppers and red tomatoes make for a beautiful presentation to accompany this healthy, mildly spicy and flavourful side dish. Roasted peanuts add an unusual kick, but you can also make this without them. Hope you enjoy this as much as mom did!

    Recipe #45176

    I tried this today as my very first attempt at pizza-making and it turned out wonderful! Spinach and baby corn gives this pizza a nice twist, while grated nutmeg gives it a unique flavour. It is a tad time-consuming but nothing beats the kick you get from making your very own fresh, customised pizza! This makes a great meal for 2 on a lazy holiday. This is from "Italian Vegetarian Cookery" by Nita Mehta.

    I found this recipe for a beautiful and tasty soup made with pureed carrots and fresh dill at, and was so blown away by it's taste that I just HAD to post it here. Warm garlic bread makes the perfect accompaniment for this velvet-textured, heartwarming soup. Enjoy!
