Indian food is so diverse. Although the core ingredients are more or less same, each state has their own method of preparation, unique spices and flavors. Today I’m sharing a very quick and wholesome recipe – Rasawala Chana, from Gujarat, India. Rasa refers to something that is saucy/ gravy kind of preparation. Black chickpeas are cooked in besan ( chickpea flour) gravy seasoned with spices, jaggery, and tamarind to give this dish its heat, sweetness and tanginess. There is no sautéing of any masala here, which makes this dish a breeze to prepare. All you need is about 10-15 minutes and of course soaked and drained black chickpeas. That’s it, and this dish is ready just like that! How easy ! This is also vegan and gluten-free!
Goan shrimp/prawn curry with drumsticks is one of my favorite curries. To me a plate of red boiled rice and spoonfuls of this curry screams comfort food! The very aroma of this curry, bubbling away on the stovetop makes me want to dive into it as soon as it’s done, so delicious!
Hope everyone has been doing great! Apologies for disappearing off the blogging radar! As I had mentioned earlier I was in India, enjoying my vacations and of course being pampered with all the home made food 😀 So cooking was off the list! Now that I’m back to US, I still ain’t cooking a lot, as my mum is here, been enjoying the food she’s cooking!! I hope to post every few days, but I’ve been so lazy!! Sigh! I sure will catch up with all your wonderful posts soon 🙂 Continue reading →
