    Spicy Vodka Rigatoni {RECIPE}

    While my achaars get lots of attention as condiments, being dolloped and spread with love, they can also be your secret ingredient to cook with. Case in point, my take on Grilled Cheese Social's Spicy Vodka Rigatoni had a helpful boost from both Tomato and Roasted Garlic Achaars. Already thinking about making this one again...

    Rajma, Warming Kidney Bean Curry {RECIPE}

    Kidney beans for some reason play second fiddle to chickpeas but I just don't understand why - they are so delicious naturally! There is a certain creaminess that comes from making this bean from its dried form which means you really don't need to add that much cooking oil or fat when preparing it. Lately I've been just pressing the bean setting on my Instant Pot while I work so I have the cooked beans ready to go when we're close to dinner time. They are also so dang cheap compared to buying cans of beans! When I describe rajma to...

    Matar Paneer {Recipe}

    Growing up Matar Paneer, a curry made from Indian cheese and peas, was hands down my favorite dish. My brother and I would fight over the last paneer in the pot because we loved it so much. These days, I don't have a lot of time to cook so I have been using my Tikka Masala sauce to quickly whip this childhood favorite together for myself and family. Matar Paneer serves 4 INGREDIENTS 1 Brooklyn Delhi Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce (Available on Amazon)1 14 oz. package paneer, cut into cubes1 cup frozen peascoconut milk or creamsalt to taste chopped cilantro For serving...

  • Golden Coconut Curry with Tofu & Veggies {Recipe}

    Golden Coconut Curry with Tofu & Veggies {Recipe}

    This is a recipe I have been making for years ever since I visited Goa where I had the most delectable coconut curries. I came back from that vacation, vowing to make my own version at home. This one is kind of reminiscent of a Thai curry too. Since I'm vegetarian I can't eat Thai curry that often in the restaurants since it often has fish sauce mixed in so this is a great option if you are veg or vegan. I created my Golden Coconut Curry simmer sauce so I could prepare this dish quickly. With two kids, it...

    Vegan Tikka Masala {Recipe}

    I discovered the deliciousness of jackfruit curry from my Great Aunt in Delhi years back. I realize now that it has really become popular as a meat substitute so I thought it would be perfect paired with my Tikka Masala sauce, which is the first vegan version of the sauce available. Try this recipe and let me know what you think! Also if you don't have jackfruit, you can also make this recipe with sautéed tofu or a can of chickpeas. Enjoy! Jackfruit Tikka Masala Serves 4 Ingredients 1 tablespoon oil 10-14 oz jackfruit chunks, ready to eat or canned...
