Gosht Lababdar / Mutton Lababdar

Gosht Lababdar / Mutton Lababdar

I don’t if I’ve had this dish anywhere but I testify that Mutton Lababdar lives up to its name. Lababdar (apparently) means “a strong desire to indulge”. I admit that the recipe is extensive and calls for every possible ingredient in the kitchen but cook […]

Dhaka Chicken

Dhaka Chicken

Given the name, I’m assuming Dhaka Chicken is a popular dish in Bangladesh. It’s that time of the year – Ramadan/ Ramzan – when I’m constantly looking for appetizer recipes for Iftar especially with boneless chicken since it cooks quickly. I tried Dhaka Chicken for […]

Curry Leaf Mutton Curry (Curry Patta Gosht)

Curry Leaf Mutton Curry (Curry Patta Gosht)

Curry Patta Gosht gives me the South Indian vibes. Perhaps because curry leaves are native to South India and a staple ingredient in almost every dish. You can try this recipe with chicken as well or give it a vegetarian spin with paneer. I’ve cooked […]

Moong Dal Dahi Vadas

Moong Dal Dahi Vadas

Here is an instant dahi vada recipe which is more like a magic wand – give it a swirl and you’d have a chaat snack on your table. I’m serious! Blend the moong dal, fry pakoda-style, and pour seasoned yogurt. Of course, if you have […]

Aloo Gajar Matar Sabzi (Potatoes-Carrots-Peas)

Aloo Gajar Matar Sabzi (Potatoes-Carrots-Peas)

Aloo Gajar Matar sabzi is packed with nutrition from 3 different vegetables – potatoes, carrots, and peas. I do enjoy dishes that have an assortment of vegetables. They are colorful and have an interesting combination of flavors. Not to forget, the color therapy those vegetables […]

Whole Masoor Dal

Whole Masoor Dal

I’m on a dal adventure nowadays, given the 2020 lockdown. Some click, some don’t. So I’m going to share dal recipes that I enjoyed. My daughter and I are pure non-vegetarians so if we love it, it’s definitely a must-try for you. Now, I like […]

Achari Bhindi

Achari Bhindi

I stumbled upon this dish during my extensive search on the Internet for a bhindi recipe that’s different from the usual. I decided to try this recipe because I had the store-bought Achar Gosht Masala at home which meant ‘convenient cooking’. If you don’t have […]

Methi Chicken

Methi Chicken

I love the addition of vegetables to meat dishes. There’s an endless variety – palak gosht, lauki gosht, karela keema, bhindi gosht and so on. My favorite is the all-famous Aloo Gosht curry. I imagine these were created by chicken-mutton lovers who knew that vegetables […]

Dahi Vada

Dahi Vada

I haven’t had a person who doesn’t enjoy dahi vadas. Its a favorite amongst kids and especially popular during Ramadan since it can be prepared in advance and refrigerated. Like every other dish, dahi vadas have a few variations and all of them are delicious. […]

Kofta Curry

Kofta curry is a rich combination of meatballs dipped in creamy, lightly spiced curry. The koftas can be made with ground chicken or lamb. There are vegetarian kofta curry recipes as well where koftas are made with paneer, lauki, or potatoes. One of the favorites […]
