Cucumber Jalepanos lime salsa

Originally posted on Chitra's Healthy Kitchen:

Cucumber Salsa final


A refreshing salsa of cool cucumber, bell peppers, onion along with lemon flavour and jalapeno. Some may feel jalopeno to be hot and few like to light your mouth on fire. So if you find yourself with a dud, just add some red pepper flakes to the desired level of hotness.

This dip can be served with any flavoured rice dish (mexican) or topped on baked potatoes or with tortilla chips.

Yields-2-3 servings

Baked Bottle gourd Kofta/Dumplings in Walnut Tomato gravy

Originally posted on Chitra's Healthy Kitchen:

Dudhi Kofta final


Bottle gourd/Lauki/Dudhi kofta curry is the tastiest dish. Here the koftas are made with grated bottle gourd, carrot, gram flour and baked until golden and then simmered in the walnut-tomato gravy. Using walnuts helps to thicken the gravy and gives a creamy texture without adding any cream or milk. However any nuts can be used alternatively and feel free to use cream/milk if desired.

This side dish can be served with Paratha/Naan/Roti (Recipe links click here).

Health Benefits:

Dudhi is considered to have medicinal value in the treatment of urinary tract infections, constipation, insomnia, fatigue and weight loss. It has been heavily used over the years in the Indian Ayurvedic medicinal system, and continues to hold an important place in Ayurveda.

Walnuts are high in protein, vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, trace minerals, lecithin and oils. Moreover, walnuts have insignificant amounts of sodium and are cholesterol free

Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans

Chicken Tenders Minute Grain Medley 007

I believe we have our Indian Summer going on here in west Chester. They say it’s usually after the first frost, most of our area had their first one Tuesday morning. Then about a day later the temps started climbing, a high of around 64 today. Then they’re calling possibly for record highs near 80 degrees for the next few days. So this might be our last blast of heat. Not much going on today, got some housework done and settled in for another afternoon of Football, NFL this time. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans.

I used Kroger Simple Truth Natural Chicken Tenders. I seasoned the Tenders with, McCormick Perfect Pinch Parmesan Herb Seasoning, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Then I got some…

Baked – Broccoli Gobi Manchurian (Indo-Chinese)

Cauliflower Brocolli Manchurian


My family loves Manchurian and indo-chinese fusion dishes, which makes to try out new variations. In Manchurian have tried baked variations like mushroom munchurian (link), baby corn manchurian (link), soya nuggets manchurian (link) The missed was  gobi manchurian. In this recipe as a variation have tried to combine Broccoli and Cauliflower and opted to bake, then sauted in the Manchurian sauce. This is a dried version of Manchurian.  The coated florets can also be shallow fried or deep fried in pan.

Here I used gram flower and corn starch for the batter however plain flour can also be used.

Enjoy this as an appetizer.  I served this with brown chickpea-capsicum Spaghetti (link) or can also be enjoyed with fried rice (link)

Both broccoli and cauliflower contain glucosinolates – compounds containing sulfer that are found only in cruciferous vegetables…

Chipotle Chicken Kabobs with an Avocado Cream Sauce

Originally posted on anticsincooking:

This recipe came from one of my favorite food blogs to read, Annie’s Eats. She has so many great recipes, this being one of my favorites, and I can say we have tried quite a few of them.

It is a simple meal to put together, and besides a little bit of marinating time for the chicken, it whips together pretty fast on a grill due to the small pieces of chicken. And whatever you do, do not forego the Avocado Cream Sauce! It is super easy and super delicious! We make this sauce pretty much anytime we make Mexican food now, whether fajitas, quesadillas, tacos, etc. It is my wife’s favorite dip.



The oh-so-good dip!


We generally serve the chicken with a cilantro-lime rice, but it would be good with refried beans as well.

Wheat bran Halwa/Porridge

Originally posted on Chitra's Healthy Kitchen:

Halwa final


This halwa can be made instantly whenever you feel like having some sweets. This dish is not much on sweet and fat. I know wheat bran is not tasty by itself but adding it in sweet makes it tastier and fiber rich.

Health Benefits:

Most grains, like wheat and oats, have a hard outer layer. When they are processed, this layer becomes a byproduct, and is called bran. In the case of processing wheat to make wheat flour, one gets miller’s or wheat bran. Wheat bran is packed with nutrition, and offers many dietary benefits.

Serves: 2-3
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20-30 minutes

Make Your Own Acai Bowl

Originally posted on KatieHartMorse:

I LOVE acaí bowls. I remember having my first one when I got to San Diego. I had never heard of them before, but fell in love instantly. They are refreshing and filling and healthy (well as long as you don’t put a ton of peanut butter and chocolate in it). Anyway, I wanted to start making them at home, because well, I don’t only want to be able to have one of my favorite things when I eat out. And I wanted to be able to put what I want in it.

make your own acai bowl

First, how is the word “acai” pronounced – aah-sai-eee

I said this wrong and was corrected multiple times when I first moved to San Diego, until I finally caught on. :) So, don’t feel bad if you have been saying it wrong.

Next – I needed to track down where to buy frozen acai packets. I know
