  • Eggplant with Garlic Achaar Buttermilk Sauce

    Eggplant with Garlic Achaar Buttermilk Sauce

    This Summer I have embraced the eggplant more so than any other year I can recall mainly because of this recipe. It's an adaptation of Yotam Ottolenghi's iconic Eggplant with Buttermilk Sauce from his cookbook Plenty with a slight variation - Garlic Achaar! It's utterly irresistible and the perfect time of the season to enjoy it. Eggplant with Garlic Achaar Buttermilk Sauce Adapted from Yotam Ottolenghi’s Plenty Ingredients 2 large and long eggplants 1/3 cup olive oil 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon thyme leaves, plus a few whole sprigs to garnish Maldon sea salt and black pepper 1 pomegranate 1 teaspoon za’atar For the Garlic Achaar Buttermilk Sauce: 9 tablespoons buttermilk 1/2 cup Greek yogurt...

    Paneer 'Butter' Masala

  • Chickpea Tikka Masala

    Chickpea Tikka Masala Tostadas

    Tacos get all the love but I'm partial to tostadas, taco's crunchy, flat cousin. As a consummate taco overstuffer, I love tostadas so much because I can pile on my fillings and not worry about a taco collapse! The combination of Chickpea Tikka Masala with labneh, a thick Middle Eastern yogurt is not to be missed but you can also sub in Greek yogurt if that is what you have access to. Chickpea Tikka Masala Tostadas Serves 4 Ingredients 1 15.5 oz-can chickpeas, rinsed and drained 1 jar Brooklyn Delhi Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce 1 package of tostadasLabneh or Greek yogurt, to...

    Sundae with Mango Chutney Glazed Nuts {RECIPE}

  • Turkish Eggs (Cilbir) with Tomato Achaar

    Turkish Eggs (Cilbir) with Tomato Achaar

    This is my take on Cilbir or Turkish eggs. The hearty dish consists of thick, garlicky yogurt, layered with poached eggs and a hot Aleppo chili butter and herbs served with flatbread on the side. My recipe uses Tomato Achaar in place of Aleppo chili for the heat. The recipe works perfectly with soft boiled eggs as well. Ingredients (serves 4)  2 cups Greek yogurt1 clove garlic, grated or ground with mortar & pestle1/4 cup chopped dill, with some additional fronds reserved for toppingsalt, to taste8 eggs4 tablespoons Brooklyn Delhi Tomato Achaar (available at a store near you or on Amazon)2 tablespoons butter or oilFlatbread (naan,...
