Easy Vegetable Manchurian

Easy Vegetable Manchurian by sanjeeta kk

A regular weekend treat for my kids, vegetable Manchurian is healthy and filling at the same time. Though a bit time consuming and laborious, but for sure is worth an effort. The vegetable balls can also be steamed and added to the gravy to avoid excess oil, the real taste is in the fried version.

Bye Bye Blues, A Quick And Spicy Bean Dish by kathy gori

I have a small confession to make. I love trick vegetables. You know what I'm talking about, the orange cauliflower, the red squash, the black garlic.

Charred Eggplpant And Peas, A Perfect Barbecue Side Dish.

Charred Eggplpant And Peas, A Perfect Barbecue Side Dish. by kathy gori

Back where I come from when stuff gets charred and there's not a barbecue involved, it's not a good thing. Charring usually involved opening a lot of windows, smoke alarms, yelling and calling the local take out.."Don't Cook Tonight, Call Chicken Delight!" The idea of deliberately charring something may seem scary, but believe me…
