Tofu Tikka

Paneer Tikka is a popular appetizer in Indian restaurant but you can use Tofu too . Use extra firm tofu. I had firm tofu and so you can see how it disintegrated.

Basically vegetables are marinated in yogurt sauce. We add some roasted chickpea flour but if you use greek yogurt it’s thick enough . Or you can use any flour you generally use to thicken your soup or sauce here.

Now add spices like red pepper, turmeric , cumin powder etc . Your choice, likes snd creativity into plain yogurt. If you have kasoori methi and mustard oil add that for Indian flavor. Or little olive is good too. We are flexible , right ?

Marinate vegetables like colored pepper , tofu, onion , mushrooms.

Put it on skewers and bake in oven for 30 -40 minutes turning them around few times in between . You can pour little butter when you turn it around .

This is no way authentic tikka recipe that you find in restaurants but at home for fun, healthy meal.

With little salad on side and cilantro chutney makes a good meal.

Appetizer for dinner . Why not ? Our minds are so conditioned that we get stuck on right and wrong and forget to be just happy.

Enjoy!

Mung Dal With Methi

Mung dal with methi bhaji is a very good combination. You can use spinach leaves also instead but methi bhaji gives this dish unique flavor .

I added pickle masala also known as methya masala to it and that also gives very good taste . Oh and add some chopped onion too.

And made in instant pot. Turned out good.

Since this is dry Shaak , you can spread on bread for sandwich. Add onion , tomato and whatever else you like in your sandwich.

Ridge Gourd in Coconut Oil

There’s a home remedy for grey hair where dried ridge gourd is boiled in coconut oil and then you massage it in hair , scalp. I have not tried it. Coconut oil and ridge gourd both are cooling . So am thinking if hair prematurely turned gray due to heat then this might help.

If you are trying it out , why not eat also ? That will help from inside . So I cooked ridge gourd in coconut oil. Added some frozen Lima beans into it .

Enjoy!

Have you been to Malaysian restaurant and tried Roti Canai ? It comes with delicious curry. Tried to recreate at home easy way.

There are few recipes for it on you tube . I took some inspiration from them and did my own way. Just an idea if you are roti canai lover .
