Hakka Noodles

Hakka noodles is very popular in India and it’s a kind of indo-Chinese dish. I didn’t follow indo-Chinese recipe where vegetables are cut fine and I think schezwan sauce , ketchup is used . I did use Hakka noodles which I bought at Indian store. Google for indo -Chinese recipe. You will find many.

I just added lot of veggies , soya sauce and chili garlic sauce. And some avocado on the side.

Makes a good filling dish with lots of vegetables and they are lighted sautéed.

Enjoy!

Moringo With Potatoes

This is just another moringo idea and it tasted good. You can cook same way you cook methi with potatoes. Next time I wil cook with chickpeas. Moringo is rich in protein so will be good with another protein source instead of potatoes. I must admit I love potatoes.

You can also sauté moringo just like you would do spinach. Little olive oil , garlic and lemon juice. I think it will taste good.

Enjoy!

Indian Style Kale Curry

Everyone knows kale is kind of super green full of nutrition. But you have to find a good way to eat it. I like to throw it in dal. Kale is hard to digest so I prefer it cooked . Found a good recipe to make a stir fry. Not much spice,  very simple and tasted really good. Here’s the link:

Only change I made was I cooked in coconut oil so no extra coconut to garnish. Do try. Kale is so cheap and available so easily. Goes well with roti and side of some soupy dal like sambhar.

Jain Mushroom Corn Curry

Onion and garlic less vegetable curries are called Jain if I am right. This is a very very simple dish to make and it tasted great. Recipe source:

Here’s the steps:

  • Chop a tomatoe and blend with few cashews , ginger and green chili.
  • Heat oil, crack  cumin seeds,pinch of hing.
  • Add blended tomatoe mix , red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and salt.Cook until oil seperates. 
  • Add sliced mushrooms and corn. Add some water, cover and cook until mushrooms are cooked. I used Bella mushroom. Button mushrooms release too much water.
  • Garnish with cilantro.
  • Told you it’s so easy to make .
  • Mushrooms have lot of health benefits and so I try to add them in fried rice and makes curry sometimes .

Potato Curry

Who doesn’t love potatoes ? And still we all try to avoid potatoes. If your diet is heavy on potatoes and rice … hmm you know it all. Once in a while it’s ok to have your favorite potatoe curry. I don’t add potatoes to okra, tindora or any subji. We all grew up eating potatoes in every subji but remember it was because cooks tried to save money on vegetables and so buy little vegetables and add potatoes so you can feed more mouths. But now that’s not the case and plenty of vegetables are available and most of the ppl can afford . If you have to save money, save somewhere else not on eating fresh vegetables and fruits. Remember health is wealth. Here’s how I made this curry.

  • Heat oil and crack mustard seeds and cumin seeds
  • Add fresh chopped tomatoes and cook.
  • Add ginger , garlic and all dry spices. 
  • Add chopped boiled potatoes , salt and mix well.
  • Add some water and let it boil.
  • Garnish with cilantro.
  • Have it with roti and of course side of a salad .
  • Enjoy!
