Hi friends, this is my new recipe that I hope you will love to try! As earlier I told I am a passionate cook. I am a vegetarian for last 8 years. When I left eating non-veg  my friends joked, “he is going to eat grass”. I laugh back. I was 17 when I realized becoming a vegetarian helps, and satisfies me.

I can prepare around 35 Indian recipes.  This is an easy 20 minutes recipe, quick to prepare and very delicious! I hope all the items I discussed here is easily available in any local market. I am trying to put all the names in English, if you are not getting the names, feel free to ask me. Thanks!

    in a future life (perhaps later in this)* i will be a vegetarian.
    so good to see blogs/posts such as yours which certainly helps everyone gravitate that way, if not already.

    *sigh. as i’ve (not entirely) joked for years: a meal for my wife is not a meal unless there’s a dad animal on the table. don’t tell her i said that.

  10. Food Porn! Yeah, baby!

    In the pics, it appears as though you used fennel seed, but then I thought perhaps that was included in your garam masala. Did you know that they now sell a garam masala mix at the grocery store? It’s pretty good. If I make this, I will probably add lamb. 😯 and make my own paneer. I’m curious….is it true that different regions in India are headstrong as to how a dish is cooked?

      You are right Kellsbellsfrompc, here in India huge varieties in language, food, and culture. Its entirely different food habit between North and Southern people.

  11. Stacey says:

    It looks FABULOUS! (I am going to try it without the butter.) Thank you so much!

  12. I am a vegetarian and I love to cook.i want to become a chef.Is there any catering college in India or anywhere else where I can learn vegetarian catering only?
