BBQ Papaya Chutney

BBQ Papaya Chutney

Papaya…Where do i start?Well,it is one of those fruit,which i do not like much.It is sweet and buttery.It is tremendously  good for digestion …and on and on ..the long list of good-for-you goes.It grows easily,i have heard.Easily available as raw and ripe,cheap,back then in India.Those must have been the reasons that it made regular appearances at our home growing up. Though,i am not a fan of ripe papaya,I do like raw,green papaya in many Indian side dishes from sweet to savory.However,more often,we just ate ripe sliced papaya.So i got the ripe Papaya,the only kind that i could get here in our store.It sat in my refrigerator for couple of days and every time i open the fridge,it gave me the look,as if i have deserted it in cold to sit and rot. So i decided to take it out finally to redeem it.Well,my goal was to make Papaya BBQ sauce for basting but i got distracted and it cooked longer then asked for.I didn’t think it was qualified to be called ‘sauce’ any longer,so i...

Yogurt Mustard Dip

Yogurt Mustard Dip

I make this quick dip to go with Samosa, Aloo chop, Pakoda, Falfal or topping on Grilled Chicken Tacos,you get the idea.Super simple and healthy too.Not much of recipe here.If you are increasing the amount of yogurt to 1 cup,increase the mustard to 1/2 tsp.I prefer to use ‘Black mustard seeds'(Indian ‘Rai’),ground in mortar-pestle.Black mustard  has more kick to it,more pungent,so little goes long way.If it is too spicy for your taste,add some yogurt to adjust the taste. Yogurt Mustard Dip #ratingval# from #reviews# reviews Print Ingredients 1/2 cup plain Yogurt 1/4 tsp ground mustard Salt to taste Instructions Mix everything and enjoy. WordPress Recipe Plugin and Microformatting by EasyRecipe 2.2.6 Yummy Notes. If you don’t have black mustard, just add some roasted cumin powder and increase the amount to 1 tsp.Cumin is milder than mustard,so you need to add more. It is one of my favorite spice to flavor the dip with but most of the time I am lazy in doing that extra 20 sec step of roasting the cumin,so I end up using mustard. There are...

Tomatillo Salsa with Crema

Tomatillo Salsa with Crema

Tomatillos are green tomato looking vegetable which has thin paper like green husk.It needs to be removed before Tomatillo can be used.It looks like green tomato but it is actually a berry.It is very tart in flavor.Many times the green sauce made out it is  referred as Salsa Verde(Green(Verde in Spanish) Sauce(Salsa in Spanish)). I have made this salsa several times and did different things to cut through slight bitterness and tartness, tomatillo has.I balanced the tartness by adding Mexican Crema to it and it scored big time unexpectedly in the family.So here it is PrintTomatillo Salsa with Crema Ingredients6-7 small Tomatillos 1/2 onion quartered 2-3 cloves of garlic 1 tablespoon lime juice 1 Teaspoon roasted ground cumin Pinch of ground chili flakes/Jalapeno Mexican Crema to adjust tartness Salt to taste InstructionsRemove the husk from tomatillo wash it.

Fruit Salsa with Bunuelos

Fruit Salsa with Bunuelos

Fruit Salsa also happens to be another snack item which I had a chance to taste at Ladies Fellowship.My friend Emily had brought it.I tasted  it and I liked it but didn’t had the chance to make it.To me Fruit salsa is also a good way to eat fruits which I do not like by itself.Apple,Pear,Grapes etc also happen to be  in that category of  fruits for me.I know crazy.             With Superbowl approaching, I thought this would be nice little sweet appetizer to go along.I googled and came across this Fruit Salsa Tips. I based my fruit salsa using the tips here.I selected the hardy fruits,which doesn’t get mushy  as it sits for couple of hours.This is what I added in mine.

Chips and Queso

Chips and Queso

Queso(sounds  like K-So) is a Spanish word for ‘Cheese’.It is very popular in Texas,particular South Texas,which is not far from the Border of Mexico.South Texas cuisine is  heavily influenced by their Mexican neighbor. So much so,there is a term coined just for that kind of cuisine ‘Tex Mex’.It also happens to be my favorite  after Indian of course.                     I do not remember when I had Queso for the first time but whenever I did,I became a  fan of it.Also, since its SO EASY to put it all together,it makes regular appearance at the parties around here. You can make ‘Queso‘ using couple different kind of cheeses.For my Superbowl party,I went to the easiest of the routes.Yes the Velveeta Route.There isn’t really much to the recipe. Ingredients: 2 lb.(32Oz.) Block of Velveeta Cheese 1 can of Rotel Tomato Directions: Cut the block of Velveeta in manageable size of pieces,to fit your pot. Add the can of tomato and keep stirring the mixture at slow heat until it’s...
