Turai Moong Dal, also known as Turiya Moong Dal Recipe, has a subtle sweetness that it gets from the ridge gourd (turai), the vegetable itself. When combined with a little bit of spice and cooked along with the lentils it imparts a soft and tender texture to the palate. At home I serve this dal along with Sukhi Aloo Sabzi and Thepla’s that are almost necessity to be made along with this dish. Another favorite combination that we love is to pour a ladle full of Turai Moong Dal over hot bowl rice topped with melted ghee.

The Gobi Musallam Recipe is a delicious and simple preparation of the cauliflower vegetable. I had tasted this recipe in one of the North Indian restaurants while I was living in the US and it immediately attracted my palate. In the traditional method of making this dish, the entire cauliflower is boiled in pot/ roasted and cooked, but I prefer making florets of the cauliflower as it is quicker to cook and also easier to eat as well. I simply love this recipe, as it is bursting with flavours and textures and the addition of cream makes the musallam super delicious.

The Thai Pineapple Vegetarian Curry Recipe is super simple dish to make and is a favorite at home. The sweetness and the sourness from the pineaple along with the vegetables simmered in an aromatic thai flavoured broth tastes delicious. I have used a red churry paste to make this dish, but you can also use a yellow curry paste or even a green curry paste. Essentially you want to have the curry that is bursting with flavors from lemon grass.

The Palak Paratha Recipe is one of those recipes that is simple, nutritious and super tasty. I learnt this recipe from my mother in law. I have had so many different versions of the paratha, over the many years, but her recipe stood out. The secret ingredient is Saunf (fennel seeds) that adds to the additional flavor and taste and not to miss out the green chillies.

You can serve the Palak Paratha for dinner along with Batata Nu Shaak or Baingan Bharta or any other Dry Vegetable or Vegetables in Gravy combination.

Carrot Onion Uttapam Recipe is a nutritious breakfast or dinner made from Ragi Idli Dosa Batter. Ragi Dosa Batter is my recent obsession and discovery that helps me incorporate the much needed millets in our diet. The addition of carrots and onions flavoured with lots of coriander makes this Uttapam healthy and makes a great kids lunch box recipe too.

Gajar Paratha is a simple and nutritious Indian flat bread that is made from grated carrots and whole wheat flour. The paratha is delicately flavoured  with roasted cumin powder and lots of chopped coriander leaves. There are many additions that you can make to pep up the taste, by adding onions or even chopped cabbage or grated cheese for kids. I most often pack this paratha for kids lunch box along with a sweet lime pickle and some yogurt.
