Want a badaboom presentation for your next dinner party? The Cauliflower Tandoori is a great way to go, plus it’s healthy, easy and mildly spicy, who could resist? I’m a big fan of Indian food, although the mild type of Indian. My husband is a big fan of the Vandaloo sauce which is so crazy spicy, I wish I could forget the pain and taste the actual sauce but it’s just impossible for me. Also I’ve experienced already the effect of too spicy food with a sip of wine and let say my body didn’t agree… so in other words; mild to medium spicy Indian are my favorites. Tandoori marinade is one of the softest Indian sauces and super tasty, it’s almost too mild that I always add a touch of Garam Masala (spicy mix of spices) to add a little spark to my tandoori. Tandoori marinade/paste I know… I know… Tandoori actually…

Indian spinach (Saag) is a great vegetarian dish, if you are looking for some new ideas to make light, vegetarian meals this is the way to go. Indian food has a great varieties of vegetarian dishes, always loaded with flavours, sometimes really hot, other times mild. This spinach dish is a mild spiced one and terribly easy to do. If you are feeling lazy after a long day of work, this is a rapid and healthy recipe to make. Often you’ll see Saag dishes blended into a paste, but if you eat it with rice, I prefer to keep the leaves whole. This week, I felt like cooking indian and eating lots of veggies and they know best how to cook vegetarian. I have to admit though… it’s not always easy to reproduce those authentic Indian recipes, some ingredients aren’t quite the same in my part of the world… or simply nonexistent. But to start…

Lauki Koftas is an indian dish; a bottle gourd dumpling into a hot curry sauce. This vegetable goes by many names; Calabash, opo, Lauki, bottle gourd…It’s origin is from Africa although the bright green skin kind is the most popular in Asia. The gourd contains over 90% of water so you’ll have to drain and keep the juice in the first step of the recipe. Also a popular choice of veggie for losing weight diets, and as cranberry juice it support the urinary system, lower blood pressure and much more. A healthy choice of vegetable. I’m lucky to be living next to a Bangalis vegetable store, where they always get those strange kind of vegetables I’ve never seen before. Two days ago, while shopping for my veggies of the day, as usual, I saw, this big bright green pear, in the first basket in the entrance. As a curious food explorer, I had to try it.…

Curry Popcorn is a great way to spice up your next home cinema night. If you are one of those soft curry lovers, or a Bollywood movie fan… this is the popcorn for you! Since I’ve started doing that Butter Curry Popcorn a few years back, it became the one and only way for me to eat popcorn. There is a little butter in it and salt, like in the traditional popcorn. Because popcorn without butter isn’t worth it. I saw curry popcorn recipes with coconut oil or Peanut oil but frankly, I need my butter in there! Plus, butter and curry goes amazingly well together. Curry powder Curry powder is made of a dry mix of ginger, turmeric, fennel seed, cardamom, cloves, etc. some versions spicier than others. This way you can add just a little butter, to keep it healthy, and go crazy on the amount of curry powder. You…

Cauliflower have such delicate taste and texture, why not give it an edge and spice it up a bit. Last week, I saw that nice recipe cauliflower-paneer-kofta-curry on the exquisite “Curry trail” blog, and I felt inspired, only problem is the balls are fried and since I’m on an eternal diet… I should cut out the frying, so I did a simplification and healthier version. I’m not an “extra spicy” kind of person, I like it in moderation… So I used only 3 tbsp of Garam Masala spice (which is spicy), but it’s totally up to you, just add 2 more of those spoons of Garam Masala spice and you’ll get a rock n roll cauliflower! I saw other recipes and mix it to my taste, for exemple, I add a little green cardamom seeds, and a squeeze of lime at the end, it end up being a success. Also you can make…
