This BBQ tofu burger is something which tofu haters should try because you might just want to change your opinion about it! Read on to know more about it because it sure did change my opinion. It is smothered so generously in BBQ sauce and also since it is marinated in a rub you can hardly taste the tofu but then again there is a slight taste which we cannot avoid but it is near to negligible. If you do not want to use tofu, you can also use a slab of paneer and use it just like the tofu slab.
I feel over the top while writing this blog post! As I mentioned in my previous post, my brother has come from Germany to spend his vacation with us which is one great reason. Apart from that, he also got me some lovely cheese from there which adds to the happiness. Along with the fresh mozzarella (That I used to make the Caprese salad), he also got me Camembert, young Gouda and Emmentaler. As if that wasn’t enough for me to feel ecstatic, there is another good news which is like cherry on the cake! Or rather like cheese on toast 😜
Third in my “All things cutlet and fritter” series is this cauliflower, peas and spinach cutlet. Potato cutlets and vegetable cutlets are quite common so I thought of making a cutlet with cauliflower, peas and spinach giving a twist to the classic aloo or potato cutlet. Spinach is not often used in cutlets so what better way than to incorporate the green leavy vegetable into the cutlets.
I’ve decided to come up with a range of healthy cutlets and fritters. This falls second in the list after the potato and cottage cheese fritters. Cutlets are perfect for the rainy weather and best had in the evening as a snack. When I think of cutlet or tikki the first thing that comes to my mind is aloo or potato tikki. I think many people can relate to it. Why not beetroot? Beetroot is one such vegetable which not many like but it is very good for you. Many kids are not fond of it as well.
I have been wanting to make these potato fritters for a long time and yesterday I seemed to find the time to make these. These fritters on their own ate quite mild therefore they should be served with a cilantro mint mayo and a simple tangy cherry tomato salad to balance out all the flavours. If you think there a lot of components and it will take forever to make, you are WRONG! It is very simple to make and quite straightforward. If you have all the ingredients ready and prepped you can make it in half an hour.

This is probably the only cupcake which I have without frosting. The cupcakes on their own are really flavourful and delicious. I love to have them while they are still warm with a cup of warm green tea or just chai. If you want to frost them, just frost them with whipped cream flavoured with a pinch of cardamom powder and it’s going to be delicious! It’s soft, fluffy and moist.

Although I call this breakfast smoothie, I have it after lunch and even after dinner most of the times. This smoothie is so refreshing and yummy. The strawberry imparts it’s beautiful flavour while the banana makes the smoothie creamy. My dad loves this smoothie and when it is strawberry season, I end up making it twice or thrice every week.

This kitchen king masala was also given in the box to review and I’m writing the review at the last because I wanted to try it out on many dishes. I added this powder to regular gravies to see the difference. Continue reading “Product Review: Eastern’s Kitchen King”
Being a typical South Indian TamBrahm, sambar is nothing new to me. We have it everyday throughout the year… Over the years, my mother has perfected her sambar powder which is amazing. I love the aroma when she freshly grinds her sambar powder and it truly cannot be replaced by anything else.

It has been quite some time since Eastern sent me the products to review but unfortunately I didn’t have the time to try it. Finally found the time to try out the products. The third product they sent me was a chat/ raita masala. I made quite a few dishes using this, firstly I tried out the aloo chat recipe which was given at the back of the box, I made a normal, simple raita and sprinkled it over it, I sprinkled it over onion and vege pakoras and it was indeed very good. 😀
