Spinach Roti/Flatbread

I love flatbreads. Thankfully my daughter equally loves them. I usually make spicy rotis and have with raitha or just make plain rotis and a spicy curry to go with it. Today, my Mum and I made spinach rotis for all of us and had it with raitha because it’s very hot outside. Ingredients: 1…

Beetroot Raitha

Beetroot is a vegetable that’s so healthy, yet very little used in my home. Traditional South Indian beetroot curry is made with beetroots, desiccated coconut and cooked in coconut oil with lots of seasoning. I used to hate it so much as a kid.. still remember putting all the beetroot in my brother’s plate and…

Strawberry and Chia Jam

After doing a recent course on child nutrition and a coincidental increase in my child’s liking of jam, I started worrying about her consumption of processed foods. Where possible, it’s always good to make stuff like jam, sauce, nut butters at home. What we make at home is hygienic, made using the best produce and…

Roasted Aubergine Curry

Back in India, we call this “Baingan Bhartha”. Traditionally, aubergine is roasted on the stove until it turns black and soft. In my home in UK, I have hot plate so roasting on stove is out of scope. You can either roast it in oven or in microwave if you don’t have enough time. I…
