Instant Fig Jam

Got few figs y’day. It was a surprise and few were more than few I could eat. For breakfast, made instant fig jam. Few still left.

Chop figs roughly. Start cooking and add little fresh lemon juice. Throw 1-2 cloves and small stick of cinnamon.

Now if you have orange , add little zest of it . Gives a very good flavor.

When water is almost gone from figs, remove from heat. Add some chia seeds to thicken jam.

Voila , jam ready. I am having it on a toast with goat cheese .


Avocado With Sprouts

Avocado and sprouts together taste very good . If you are like me , then when you have avocado, sprouts are not ready and by the time sprouts are ready , avocado is eaten up. This time I had half avocado and alfalfa sprouts.

When you are busy, this is a good filling combination. Use on toast or Indian thepla or Paratha. Simple yet delicious, nutritious.


Ridge Gourd

Ridge gourd Masoor Dal
Ridge gourd Peel Chutney

Ridge gourd is rich in enzyme catalyse so here’s few way of using it . Ridge gourd dal is easy to make in instant pot. I used Masoor dal but you can use any dal. You can also use yellow split pea. But if you are at Indian store trying to buy ridge gourd then might as well buy dal.

Ridge gourd peel yes peel also is edible. Generally ppl seem to remove some hard peel and then make curry out of it separately or make chutney. So I made chutney . And used it as a spread on sandwich .

Chutneys are good to eat in stead of all those sugar, salt rich sauces , ketchup.


Mung Dal Sandwich

Left over protein rich mung dal is use as spread just like you will use hummus.

Added tomatoes , onions , spring mix and goat cheese . Very yummy .

Be creative. Life throws all logic out of the window sometimes in a second. Being creative is always fun .


Wrap Sandwich

Have you seen this new kind of wrap sandwich that has become very popular now a days ? It could also be that I am late to know abt this.

You just put 1 cut in tortilla with pizza cutter until center .

Have 4 different things on 4 sides and fold/warp it.

Now just toast it on skillet.

Looks nice and something new.

I always go crazy with toppings and then it becomes so fat. But it tasted so good.

Kids will enjoy this new style.

You can choose your favorite fillings and can put few things together on 1 side if you have more than 4 things.
