Roasted Cauliflower head

Roasted Cauliflower head

Do you have a favorite vegetable? I have many.One of it is cauliflower.I am thinking of my mom’s ‘Gobhi-Dum’,she makes during festivals.I have not been able to recreate it yet. Yesterday,we were having leftover BBQ roasted chicken for dinner.So i was going to make the fixings for it.I prepared creamed corn.I was thinking to make potato salad which we love. Then i noticed cauliflower head in my refrigerator. I knew precisely why i had bought it. Couple of weeks ago,i saw color of Indian cooking cooking cauliflower in a way,i never thought of.Ever since i wanted to give it a try. I love roasted cauliflower.This one is whole cauliflower head roasted.So instead of potato salad we had roasted cauliflower. This in itself is very filling.Those of you who are on Paleo diet,you can have this instead of rice and potatoes. It is important that your cooked spice blend is sort of like coarse puree paste in the end.It sticks well that way.You can also grind onion and tomatoes first and then cook it with...

A Compassionate Meal – Kobhi Zunka

A Compassionate Meal – Kobhi Zunka

You might have noticed a banner for Compassion International in my blog.I put this banner on the day,we started sponsoring a little girl in India.A constant reminder to us that oceans away there is this sweet girl,who we haven’t met personally,is been connected to us by God.  To celebrate this sponsorship,i decided to make a meal from the state where this sweet girl lives.A state of Maharashtra.You may or may not have heard the name before but if i ask you,if you know ‘Bollywood’,then it might ring a bell.Mumbai,home of Bollywood, is a capital of Maharashtra.India has 25 states.There are at least 25 languages,one per each state spoken with numerous dialect.I can understand only few of them.People who are original to Maharashtra are called ‘Marathi’,which is also the language they speak. We decided to have a candlelight Marathi dinner,as we prayed for her and her family.My kids looked up in their table mat where the place is located within India. Now a little bit about Kobhi Zunka.Basically ‘Kobhi’ is...

Rainbow Potatos

Rainbow Potatos

Couple of days back,as i was passing by the potato aisle,i caught a glance of purple potatoes.I have been looking for these purple Peruvian potatoes for a while. Though,eating potatoes may sound like working against all your new year resolutions to keep starchy food out,i might just add these purple potatoes are  good for you. So as i bought purple,i thought why not get some red and then some white too and make rainbow potatoes :-)I wanted to keep it very easy and simple,so i added only garlic and paprika with bit of oil to saute it.These medium thin potatoes doesn’t take time to cook. And those of you,who are wondering about taste ,purple potatoes tastes pretty much the same as regular ones.Though you may have convincing to do at the dinner table,to even try one.My 3 year old was picking them out meticulously,with a look on his face asking “what is that color thing in the potatoes?” PrintRainbow Potato Ingredientshandful of purple potatoes(5-6) handful of red potatoes(5-6) handful of...

Kelewele

Kelewele

I was telling you earlier about the red-red stew,which is a traditional dish of Ghana.I found out that, this  stew is often served with spicy fried plantains.I had the opportunity to taste the fried plantain last year at Disney world.Odd place  for the memory of such eating you might think ha ! We had a meal with characters at Tusker house,in the African village.Buffet was the international spread of food.I must have eaten my weigh out.I had to try everything i saw.Gluttony is the word comes in my mind! I don’t know if what i tasted was kelewele but i do know i was hooked to fried plantain ever since.My family not so much.Today when i prepared it,me and my little boy were the only  one who cared for it.And for the record that does not stop me from making this dish again :-).My hope is that they may get used to it through me someday ! Let me tell you couple of things about this dish. First plantain.Many people confuse it with...

Creamed  Corn

Creamed Corn

I was telling you earlier that we celebrated my hubby’s birthday couple of days back.I also told you,how impossible it is for me to surprise him  and only way it has worked for me is to make him the good dinner 🙂 Growing up,that’s  what my mom did.We didn’t had birthday cakes(wasn’t a norm of the day) but my mom ALWAYS made sure to make most special sumptuous meal for the birthday person. So it has stuck with me.I was trying to think of a theme to base his birthday food around.My husband has Irish,German, American ancestry.A very handsome man,i am blessed to married to 🙂 I thought,what if i make the meal representing his ancestry. And there,with this thought,i laid down the dinner plan.I had hard time filling up the German part because either it is nutty or has meat that i don’t cook with or lacked one ingredient or other(This is what happened when you don’t plan things in advance). This is what we had Irish Soda Bread Colcannon(Irish) Creamed...

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Do you like Brussels Sprouts?  Well,i didn’t even know about Brussels sprouts until very late.It is one of those vegetable which is deemed “holiday” vegetable.It is ubiquitous much more as Thanksgiving hangs around.When i first met Brussel,i thought of it as miniature(even miniature is not a right word,it is as small as small onion or potato or tomato or something) version  of cabbage.I like cabbage cooked in particular way,so i was inclined to try it out. I like  it roasted ,i would say.However nonone else cared for its presence other then my mother-in-law at the Thanksgiving table and i  had known it :-).I can sneak this veg and everyone will eat it but i wanted to present in its originality,so i roasted it 🙂 PrintRoasted Brussels Sprouts Ingredients1 bag(1 lb) of Brussels Sprouts Oil salt and pepper to tasteInstructionsPreheat oven to 400F Clean the Brussels sprouts. Slice them in half or quarters(if it is big). Toss it in oil,salt and pepper Roast at 400F until it is slighlty brown but not...
