Easy Vegeterian Recipes and Fun Cooking!

I started this blog quite a while back. I can trace back the first post here. I blogged many recipes so far, gained me a few pounds from eating all those stuff that blogged. Most of the recipes were found to be interesting by quite a number of visitors. I do have a list of the recipes that I blogged on the side bar, but I will make it more easier by posting some of the good recipes blogged so far. Feel free to browse them, cook them and share how it come out if you happen to cook them :)

Let us start with some of the Vegetarian Recipes:


  • Paneer Mattar Masala curry
  • This was a simple paneer recipe that can never go wrong. Nothing fancy, just a good Paneer Curry. But the real winner in this recipe is How I prepared the paneer or cottage cheese from scratch. yes, you can quite easily make paneer at home.


  • Simple Palak Paneer
  • This is another Paneer recipe. A real easy palak paneer. Again, nothing fancy, and it doesn't really look like the palak paneer you get at restaurants. I have simplified this so that anyone one can cook it in less than half an hour. Enjoy!

    I also have some kick ass Halwa Recipes. Halwa is an Indian Sweet dish, that can be had as a dessert, or breakfast, or even a snack. Indians do love sweet snacks.

  • Gajjar ka Halwa
  • This is an easy way of making Gajjar ka Halwa. Gajjas or Carrot is grated and cooked in Milk and butter, with dried fruits to add that special thing.

  • Beet ka Halwa
  • Quite similar to the carrot halwa, but with Beet and this also taste just awesome.

  • White Peas Cooked with baking soda

  • Ootti ver 2.0
  • I actually blogged the above recipe twice. It is a Manipuri delicacy called "Ootti". A real wonning recipe that tastes awesome with rice or Khichdi, and even Puri.

  • Rice Kheer
  • This is something like Rice Porridge, again an Indian Sweet dish that is had as dessert or even breakfast. Rice cooked in milk and flavored with raisins and what not.

  • Peanut Palak Saag
  • This is a simple spinach or palak recipe. A unique combination of spinach and peanuts. I am sure you haven't had this before. Try it and tell me if you liked it.

  • Gobi Pakoda

  • This is a simple recipe of Cauliflower Fritters, cauliflower dipped in a spicy batter of gram flour and deep fried. Great as a beer snack or just something to snack on on a rainy afternoon.

    Similar fritters that I blogged:
  • Veg Pakoda

  • Potato Fritters

  • Excuse the prawn recipe in between the veg recipes. I blogged the recipe for both vegeterians and non vegeterians. Same batter, different dips!


  • Pakoda Kadhi
  • And curry made out of the fritters.


  • Gobi Manchurian
  • This is a faux Chinese recipe that is very popular in India. This is a vegeterian chicken manchurian, only with cauliflowers in place of the Chicken.

  • Chole Masala
  • Chole masala cooked in a very simple way. the recipe is very easy to follow. Don't write it down, just remember the steps and try it. Chole is type of chick peas white in color and bigger than the usual chick pea.

  • Mashed Potato
  • Who said Indians don't eat mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes are very popular in the eastern part of Indian, and is a very popular cuisine. Here is an easy recipe of the Indian mashed potato.


  • Easy Daal Recipes
  • Eating daals or boiled grams with every meal, daal can become quite a bore. But spice it up, and it is an awesome dish. Check out my daal recipes.


  • French Beans cooked with Coconuts
  • If you have been to Bangalore, you must have come across the French beans side dish that is cooked with grated coconut. Truth be told, that is the only way I like my beans, other the steamed beans served with steaks.

  • Sarson Da Saag
  • Now, what is this? Well, as a food blog, that mostly cooks Indian Recipes, passing over Sarsong ka saag would have been a sacrilege. Well, this is the famous Sarsong ka saag. I have simplified the recipe without diluting the flavour. You could call it stir fried mustard greens.


  • Aloo Karela
  • Bitter Gourd or karela as the name suggests is bitter, Kaput! Slow fry it with some onions and potatoes, and it becomes a very elegant bitter sweet side dish that is extremely healthy, trust me.

  • Loki Masala
  • I don't quite like the usual curry of loki or water gourd, but I have a simple recipe that I sometimes cook and I don't actually mind.

  • Veg Korma
  • A list of vegeterian recipes will be incomplete with the Vegetable Korma recipe eh! This is a mixed Vegeterian curry.

  • Coconutty Cabbage
  • This is a fry cooked cabbage recipe flavored with grated coconut. Quite light on the stomach!


  • Cabbage and peas
  • A quickie side dish you can cook in 10 minutes from peas and cabbage

  • Aloo Gobi
  • I love aloo gobi subzee, the dish made by slow cooking potatoes and cauliflower in vegetable oil. Try adding some chick peas, and you get a distinctly different Aloo Gobi.


  • Gobi Curry
  • One more cauliflower recipe!

  • Aloo Jeera
  • The ubiquitous Aloo Jeera, or potatoes fried with cumin seed. This is a real quickie dish that I can whip up in 10 minutes.

    Below is a list of Khichdi Recipes that I blogged:
  • Green Moong Khichdi
  • Many people tried and loved this actually!
  • Simple Khichdi recipe with ghee



  • Simple Khichdis that I cooked when I was sick.
  • Low fat, low spice!

  • Rajma Masala
  • Rajma Chawal is the favorite of most Indians, a comfort food, a food that many Indians living away from home misses the most. Chawal is easy, but you can also easily make a great Rajma Dish. Now don't put too much onions please. Half an onion fried till golden brown for a pound of Rajma.

  • Stuffed Capsicum
  • Have you not tried my stuffed capsicum yet? You will love it!



  • Capsicum Zhunka
  • Another capsicum recipe I learnt when in Mumbai. Great Maharashtrian recipe.
  • Veg Biryani
  • A simple and quick vegeterian Biryani!

  • Dum Aloo
  • A quick and simple Dum Aloo recipe.

  • Palak Daal
  • And this is another daal recipe. Toor daal with spinach!

    Hi,

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

    Hi!

    I was told of your blog by Raj -- who is also your college friend. :-) You have a very interesting blog and blog title. I have not ever tried cooking Indian food cos am not sure if I would find your ingredients here in my country. Actually I don't cook but my daughters do. So I might ask them to give it a shot with a simple Indian dish to start with. :-)

    Hope you're having a good week.
