Indian Samosas..Famous Indian patties with the filling of vegetables and spices.
Samosa, the most loved Indian appetizer with a crisp crust and savory potato stuffing. When you make such fried fast food at home, you get to make some changes to make it healthy. Here are some Whole Wheat Aloo Matar(potato and peas) Samosas for you to try at home and savor them as much as we did. Ingredients: Whole Wheat Flour/Atta - 1 cup Carom Seeds/Ajwain/Owa - 1 tsp Ghee/Clarified Butter - 1/2 tbsp (optional) Olive Oil or any other Oil - 1/2 tbsp Potatoes (Russet) - 2 medium Green Peas - 1/2 cup Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp Black Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp Ginger (grated) - 1/4 tsp Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp Turmeric - 1/4 tsp Green - 1 Coriander/Cilantro Leaves - few sprigs Salt Oil for frying How to make Samosas: Making Samosa Crust: In a mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, carom seeds and little salt. Heat ghee and olive oil in a small pan. Add this hot (not warm) ghee and oil to the wheat flour and mix with a spoon. This hot oil will make the crust crisp. When it turns cold enough to handle, add water and knead to form a soft pliable dough. You can add more oil if you like. Too soft dough will make the crust soggy. Cover and let the dough rest for 15 - 20 minutes. Generally, all purpose flour/maida is used for Samosa crust. I prefer whole wheat flour as it has more nutrients. Preparing Stuffing for Samosas: Microwave green peas in a microwave safe bowl for about 2 minutes or until peas are cooked. I used frozen green peas. Boil potatoes until soft, do not overcook them. Let the potatoes cool completely. Finely chop green chilli and coriander leaves. I prefer Russet potatoes for Samosas and Vada Pav(one more popular Indian Recipe). In a mixing bowl, add cooked peas, mashed potatoes, coriander powder, cumin powder, ginger, black pepper powder, turmeric, garam masala, green chillies, coriander leaves and little salt. Mix well and taste for salt and other spices. Assembling Samosas: Divide the dough into 6 - 8 balls. Roll each ball into an oval shape, slightly thin. Cut each one into two parts, making 12 - 16 samosas. Apply a drop of water to the edges and form a cone shape. Stuff one of them with the Aloo Matar stuffing and seal it as shown in the picture. Deep fry this stuffed samosa in medium hot oil. If the crust turns soft, roll it more thinner. Repeat the same for other dough balls. Serve hot Vegetable Samosa with Mint Coriander Chutney and/or Tamarind Chutney and/or ketchup.
Meatless Monday Recipe: Red Lentil & Root Veggie Dal
I love Indian food. I love the unique spices and the savory flavors and the fact that it really is so healthy. (As long as you stay away from the cream-heavy sauces, that is!) My favorite Indian restaurant always serves up their meals with a small bowl of dal, traditional curried lentils, and sometimes I want dal more than I want my actual meal! Here is a really great recipe for making dal with red lentils and root veggies like parsnip, turnip, and carrots. You can enjoy it as a side that's about 240 calories or serve it over brown basmati rice for a terrific and light meal! --------------------------------------------------- Red Lentil & Root Veggie Dal 2 teaspoons olive oil 1 medium-sized onion, diced finely 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons coriander seeds, crushed 2 - 3 teaspoons mild curry powder (I would start with 2 teaspoons and add more to taste at the end.) 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 1/4 teaspoons salt 4 cups vegetable broth 1 cup dried red lentils 3/4 pound parsnip, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups) 3/4 pound rutabaga or turnip, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups) 1 cup baby carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces Lime slices, for serving (optional) 1. Preheat a 4-quart pot over medium-high heat. Saute the onions in the oil until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes, and saute for another minute. 2. Add the remaining spices and salt, and saute for about 30 seconds, then add the broth, lentils, and the remaining vegetables. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, keeping a close eye on it. Once it's boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, until the lentils are creamy and the vegetables are soft. If necessary, thin the soup by adding up to a cup of water. Taste for salt and seasonings. 3. Let the soup sit for 10 minutes or so for maximum flavor. Serve garnished with lime slices.

Make Super Easy Curry โ€“ Just 30 Minutes!
Let's be real. Getting a healthy, delicious dinner on the table can be a real chore sometimes, especially after a long, tiring day of work or school. That's why I'm always on the lookout for fast, easy-to-make recipes โ€“ then I've got no excuse NOT to eat healthy, homemade food! You guys are going to love this simple curry โ€“ it takes just 30 minutes to throw together, and won't leave you with tons of dishes to wash. Plus, it's like multiple recipes in one โ€“ you'll see why! Keep this on hand for those nights when you're too tired to cook; the promise of this delicious payoff for so little work will motivate you to forget the takeout, and whip up some curry. :) Step One: Choose Your Curry Sauce Depending on whether you're in the mood for a savory, lightly spicy yellow Indian-style curry, or a sweet Thai-inspired mango curry, choose one of the sauces above. They're both equally simple to prepare! Step Two: Choose Your Protein Vegans, are you in the mood for quinoa? For vegetarians, perhaps some paneer cheese. Or, if you're a meat eater, lean chicken or turkey breast would go great with either sauce, and you can even try a flaky white fish with the mango curry. Adventurous vegetarians might want to try subbing in tempeh or another meat substitute! Step Three: Choose Your Vegetables Snow peas, peppers, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, green beans, potatoes, even eggplant or butternut squash โ€“ choose a mix of your favorite veggies! Step Four: Cook It Up! Follow the recipes below and whip up your satisfying meal! :) Note: If you chose quinoa as your protein, cook separately, and then spoon curry on top to serve. Classic Yellow Curry 1 onion, roughly chopped 1 tsp each ground coriander, ground cumin, and ground turmeric 2 cans of tomatoes, chopped a pinch of sugar 1 inch piece root ginger, peeled and finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, chopped 2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped 12-14 oz. reduced-fat coconut milk juice of ยฝ lime 3 tbsp chopped cilantro In food processor, blend onion, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and 6 tbsps of water to make a paste. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan, and add paste, tomatoes, sugar, and 1 tsp of salt. Simmer, stirring often, for 5 mins. Stir in ginger, garlic, chili, and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer. Add protein. Cover and gently simmer for 5-15 mins (until protein is nearly cooked through). Add veggies. Remove lid and simmer over medium heat, about 5-10 minutes, until veggies and protein are cooked, and sauce has thickened slightly. Stir in lime juice and cilantro. Serve over rice or quinoa. Sweet Mango Curry 1 onion, finely chopped 1 red pepper, sliced 1 tsp medium curry powder 2 tbsp tomato purรฉe 1 cup vegetable stock 1 tbsp mango chutney 12-14 oz. chopped tomatoes in tomato juice 7-8 oz. baby spinach, washed In a pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat and sautรฉ onion and red pepper for 10 min or until softened. Stir in curry powder and tomato purรฉe, and sautรฉ for 30 secs. Add stock, chutney, and tomatoes. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Add protein; simmer for 5-15 mins (until protein is nearly cooked through). Add veggies, and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Stir in spinach just before serving, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over rice or quinoa. YAY! That's how easy it is to have a delicious curry dinner for you and the fam :) Hope you guys enjoy! Let me know if you give one a try โ€“ I wanna see pictures and hear all about the reactions :) Tagging my foodie Vinglers โ€“ made this one for you guys with love! @alywoah @RobertMarsh @marshalledgar @thePinkPrincess @jordanhamilton @rodiziketan @JPBenedetto @Arellano1052 @amendasaeyang @Syowa @FreddyAlaniz @ericasyummyfood @HomemadeHooplah @cupcakelady @myfitfriends @ThyAreMyCreator @jazziejazz @NickyHerring @mandaheartsong @MikasaChan @lindathai92 @LizArnone @AaronFox @kaminisingh @damionreynolds @falcon4daisy @MissB82 @carolinian87
Travel Singapore: 6 Dishes You Have to Try!
I just got back from Singapore which was basically just me eating everything in sight for 4 days straight. Here are 6 things I had a loved, but keep in mind there are a billion other things you have to try there as well! (Not listed: chili craaaaaaaaaaab!!!!!!) Pictured above: Teh O Limau (black tea with lime!) 1. Murtabak Murtabak is a super tasty dish from the Middle East that I could probably eat every day. You can get nearly any filling you want (we chose one Chicken and one sardine) and it will be wrapped up in a delicious bread similar to na'an or paratha. We got curry to dip it in and it tasted fantastic! 2. Fish Ball Soup For the unadventurous or those who avoid spice, this fish ball soup is perfect. If you find that traveling gave you an upset stomach, this simple broth with some onion, noodles, and a few balls made from fish will have you feeling better in no time. Serious comfort food. 3. Carrot Cake Carrot cake is my favorite thing on this earth. Rather than carrots, it is made using radish that has been pounded into a soft almost noodle. Think gnocchi, but with radish! It's then fried up with egg and chilis, then (if you get black carrot cake) tossed around in some soy sauce. It's DELICIOUS. 4. BBQ Sting Ray The dish to the left is bbq string ray, the first thing I ever ate in Singapore. Its a fishy taste covered in a really awesome chili sauce. Once I got the fact that it was sting ray out of my mind, it tasted just like any other fish I love eating! 5. Popiah See that egg roll looking thing? That's popiah. At first I expected something like the Filipino dish lumpia, but it is so much sweeter than that. These spring rolls are common in Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia and are filled with fresh veggies. You can get them spicier, but they'll always have a distinctly sweet taste to it. 6. Kaya Toast (with Teh O) Made from a mixture of coconut and egg (which I just found out last week, after years of eating kaya...) Kaya jam is one of the yummiest things you can spread on toast. Traditional kaya toast has kaya and a few thick slices of butter sandwiched between two freshly toasted slices of bread. Usually its also served with soft boiled eggs which you can add soy sauce to. Get your kaya toast with some kopi or teh o (black coffee or black tea) to start your day right! I also tried Salted Egg Yolk Croissant, since salted egg yolk ANYTHING is a huge deal in Singapore right now. And to be honest, I really didn't like it. It tasted like what happens when you make icing and add too much powdered sugar. It was really dry and didn't even taste like salt or egg at all. Maybe it's not supposed to and I'm missing the point, but I wasn't a fan :/ Have you ever had Singaporean food? What's your favorite?!
Meatless Monday Recipe: Tofu & Eggplant Tikka Masala
This vegan take on paneer tikka masala doesn't actually have paneer, but when you replace it with some equally creamy cubes of extra-firm tofu, I can guarantee that you won't even be able to tell that it's missing! Pair this meal with some white or brown rice or scoop it up with some naan. You'll find this dish has just enough heat without scaring off the members of your family who might be a little afraid of spice. Tofu & Eggplant Tikka Masala (Makes 3 - 4 servings) INGREDIENTS: 1 package extra firm tofu, cubed 3 roma tomatoes, finely chopped ยฝ red bell pepper, finely chopped 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 one inch piece ginger, minced 1 tablespoon oil1 cup water 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro for garnish 1 teaspoon dried fenugreek (kasoori methi) Salt 1 teaspoon turmeric 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground fenugreek 1 teaspoon red chili powder 1 1โ€ณ piece of cinnamon 2 cloves 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg 2 green Cardamom pods For the marinade - ยผ cup plain soy yogurt ยฝ teaspoon ground cumin 1.5 teaspoons ground coriander 1 teaspoon garam masala ยฝ teaspoon turmeric powder ยผ teaspoon ground nutmeg ยผ teaspoon ground clove ยฝ teaspoon red chili powder 1 tablespoon oil 1 teaspoon lemon juice DIRECTIONS: Combine all the ingredients listed under marinade in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add cubed tofu and green bell peppers and coat well with the marinade. Leave this at room temperature for about an hour. You can also make this ahead and refrigerate it for up to 8 hours. Place the marinated tofu and green bell peppers on a foil lined baking tray and broil for 5 minutes or until the edges start turning a little black. The yogurt will keep the tofu moist. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan and when oil is hot, add all the whole spices and powdered spices and cook for 5 minutes or until a nice aroma fills the kitchen. The spices may burn easily, so keep a close watch. Add onions and cook till they turn soft. Add ginger and garlic, cook for a minute. Add red bell peppers and cook till they turn soft.
You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
