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 […]

Shahi Navratan Korma

Shahi Navratan Korma

Shahi Navratan Korma is a delicious combination of 9 vegetables in a mildly spiced, creamy gravy. You can use vegetables of your preference. When I want to give my family a vegetarian treat, I whip up dishes that are pretty much an overdose on vegetables […]

Mini Apple Rose Pies

Mini Apple Rose Pies

Since I’m not really a baker – and a sophisticated one at that – making apple rose pies was quite a task. I was rather impressed when it came out perfect in the first shot! Mini Apple Rose Pies reminded of the Turkish Rose Dessert […]
