Thai Salad

Salad dressing is main here . Sweet , sour and spicy. You can use vegetables you like.

Red cabbage is full of antioxidants but I hardly buy it since I don’t cook much with it . In this salad , it goes perfect.

In addition to red cabbage , I added Napa cabbage , peppers , carrot , cucumber , mango, green onion, cilantro.

Salad dressing is based on Chef Kunal Kapoor‘s recipe. I used ginger , garlic , soya sauce, hot sauce, coconut sugar, manuka honey, almond butter, toasted sesame oil, lemon juice .

Add dressing when you are ready to eat.


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 .


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 .


Garlic Topping On Pizza

Home made pizza with lots of veggie toppings.

Star here is garlic. Have you ever tried garlic cloves as topping on pizza ? Garlic gets roasted and taste very good . You don’t see in picture but it’s there like hidden treasure .

Try it out . Use fresh garlic and just add whole clove after peeling.
