Monsoon Chermoula

Monsoon Chermoula

If you read any of my food stories, you will know I look at well used ingredients in different ways. I change the preparation and remain open to the interpretation. In case of staples like garlic, chillies, turmeric, cilantro are used frequently, if not daily, in my kitchen. What I love is when I transform them in new and exciting ways.

Waiting For Spring Salad & Indian Sunshine Dressing

Waiting For Spring Salad & Indian Sunshine Dressing

So you know those Little Men books, specifically the Little Miss Sunshine one? Well, for as long I have known, I have been referenced to this book character. Believe me, I have the pyjamas to prove it. I think this connection is simply because I tend to see the rainbow behind the proverbial clouds in any circumstance.

Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas

Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas

Oh hello, let me introduce you to my new favourite snack: Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas.

I’ve been on a bit of a chickpea kick lately, if you hadn’t noticed already. It only made sense that I roast some up for a grazing snack to have on hand. Lately, I haven’t been consuming my daily quota of potato chips, instead I have been eating these roasted chickpeas by the fistful. They have a popcorn-esque snackiness. I can munch on them with abandon since they have benefit of being low in saturated fat and being a healthy source of iron and folate.

Princess & the Pea Crostini

Princess & the Pea Crostini

I hate peas.

Or at least I think I hate peas.

For as long as I can remember, peas, even just the word itself, caused me distress. They would make appearances in rice or in various Indian dishes like carrot sabji or aloo mattar (potato and pea) dahl. I would cringe and feel repulsed.

In my mind, they were these weird greyish green orbs that had a leathery skin. Their texture was starchy and when my spoon scooped them up – they would become mushy. It was obvious, I disliked them. Any peas that hit my plate, would be picked out or pushed to the side.
