Spinach curry with coconut gravy (Soppina Kayi Sasive Gojju)

Spinach is an absolutely versatile vegetable, right? You can puree it into a delicious soup or throw it into pasta or rice to get a ton of flavor or you can cook up a delicious curry or make some healthy salad! Every week, I pick up a box of spinach and have it handy around the kitchen. One of my absolute favorite ways to use spinach is in the form of a curry. This spinach curry with coconut and tamarind is a real easy dish to put together. These kind of easy recipes help me get through a busy week πŸ™‚

Hara Bhara Kabab with Raw Banana (Plantains)

For as long as I remember, if some restaurant happened to have hara bhara kabab on their menu, I would never miss ordering them. Somehow the color, crunch and taste of these kababs is unbeatable! I have another variant of this Hara Bhara Kabab already on the blogΒ – Check it out!

In this recipe, I have introduced plantains into the recipe. Plantains act like good binding agents and wonderfully complement the other veggies here. I totally skipped the deep frying part and opted to just cook these on a skillet with a little oil. Trust me – these are still as crunchy and tasty as the original kababs. Don’t take my word for it – give this recipe a try! 20 min and you will have this all ready at the dinner table πŸ™‚

Microwave Khaman-Oats Spinach Dhokla

Khaman Dhokla is an Indian steamed savory cake made using chickpea flour/gram flour/besan. It is one quick, healthy treat that is loved by all! It is one of those classic dishes like Indian samosas. There a ton of variants and recipes already up on the internet for a lot of khaman dhokla recipes and other variants! But this is my take on it. I figured it had to feature on my blog since I make it practically every time I am hungry and want something super quick. There are a couple of pros and cons of using microwave to prepare dhokla. For the plus points – it is really easy, quick and is a great way to stay away from junk food when you are super hungry! On the other hand, like most quick shortcuts to Indian food, using a microwave just does not give the same texture as steaming the dhokla. That being said I still love this recipe πŸ˜€

Spinach, bell pepper patties (No Potatoes/Eggs) – Hara Bhara Kababs

I love all things potato! I am sure there are very few people who don’t πŸ™‚ But potato is really starchy and so I always try to avoid it in my cooking. Since I started trying to be creative in my cooking, I don’t think I miss out on those potato dishes a lot πŸ™‚ The only dishes where I missed it were those which called for potato to bind all the good stuff together! Yeah, burgers and patties! I don’t Β eat eggs and I don’tΒ like cheese either, otherwise these would have been really great to use in patties πŸ™
