Oh So Good.....From the pages of fellow bloggers to my kitchen



Meena's Gobi Manchurian is spot on....it tastes just like something you'd get at a restaurant with the bonus that you know exactly what is going into it. I stuck to the original recipe with some very minor changes like adding half a chopped bell pepper and changing the amount of sauces used to my taste. I also skipped the green onions. The dish looked so good that it is no surprise it didn't take us long to finish it off. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Another recipe that I tried and absolutely loved is Sangeetha's Bisi Bele Baath. I have always made BBB with store bought BBB masala. Never again. Now that I know what authentic fresh ground masala does to the dish Iam not ever going to buy the ready made powder that's sold any more. The dish is a little on the spicy side...so tone down the chillies if you aren't much of a spice lover. I love my food HOT. So to me the recipe is just perfect.
Thank you Meena and Sangeeta for sharing these wonderful recipes.

I started writing a food blog thinking it would be a good way to dabble in my passion for Indian cooking, but I have too discovered some fab super simple Indian recipes on the blogosphere...

Happy cooking and thanks for brining all these wonderful recipes alive.

Mantu, once you try fresh masala, you won't ever go back to store bought.
