Healthy chicken salad sandwiches

image

I love a quick meal, and if it’s healthy then it is surely an added bonus, like these chicken salad sandwiches. There are so many variations to a chicken salad, the various add ons like  green apples, almonds, walnut, scallion greens, cranberries , celery ,so forth and so on. You can also add some chilli powder for heat. This time I ran out of walnuts, so substituted it with cashew nuts , I must say it complemented the chicken salad sandwich quite well 🙂

Matar paneer

Matar paneer is a popular North Indian dish , loved by one and all.  Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) and green peas are cooked in a onion tomato based gravy seasoned with aromatic spices. To add to it’s richness, cashew nut paste and cream are usually added, however I skipped the cream and just added the cashew nut paste. This dish is mildly spiced with a hint of sweetness.

Sweet chilli cream cheese sandwich bites

Hi everyone!


It’s been a while since I last blogged. I had a lot of things going around, which included shopping gifts for our relatives in India. It had been a year and a half since we last visited. We also visited London, for my Brother in law’s daughter’s christening.  I also happen to be her Godmother, so I wanted to meet that little bundle of joy. Such a sweet munchkin she is!! Miss her already 🙁 Continue reading →

Soy and spinach croquettes

image

Hello folks!

I’m back with another healthy, vegan & kid-friendly snack recipe – Soy and spinach croquettes! I had this large box of organic spinach that I got from Costco, I used it at least three times and yet I had about 2 cups remaining. I thought I would experiment with it in the form of croquettes. To add some volume and health quotient  to it, I added Soy granules/TVP. It made for a very interesting combination, they were moist and delicate on the inside, delicious from all the seasonings with a crisp exterior, basically everything you wish for in a deep fried snack 😀 Continue reading →


Mango parfait

image

I had some leftover canned mango pulp that was sitting in the ziplock bag, which I could have easily had as it is! But the blogger in me was itching to do something with it. Browsed through my refrigerator , I had a sponge cake, cool whip and I had recently bought mangoes from the grocery store ! So I already knew what I was making – parfait it was. The previous night I prepared the jelly and let it set , so I could put this together the next day. This is quite similar to the fruit custard and jelly I’ve shared earlier , except this time I took the shorter way out and used cool whip instead of making the custard. You could also use some yogurt , sweeten it and whisk it well to get rid of any lumps. To make it even more decadent how about a cream cheese plus condensed milk mixture ? Aahh endless possibilities, there is always a next time 🙂 Continue reading →

Schezwan /Sichuan baby potatoes (dry version)

image

Schezwan potatoes is a delicious, hot and tangy Indo Chinese dish. Like most Indo Chinese dishes, it hardly takes much time for this dish to come together. Prepping up your ingredients is the key! Here, boiled and fried baby potatoes are tossed in a schezwan sauce base and of course much easier if you have the sauce already which is the main ingredient here. I love to prepare this schezwan sauce in a big batch and store it, when I run out of ideas or I want quick meals, this is a life saver. I highly recommend you have one in your pantry, or if you’re too lazy to make your own , go ahead and get a good quality store bought one 🙂 Continue reading →
