By the end of day when I sit down to write the posts for my recipes I find my self dozing off in front of the computer. Rather than have recipes with a bunch of mistakes in them I am going to write summaries of posts I intend to write.
Mushroom and Spinach Omelet
An easy way for me to incorporates some veggies in the diet. When I make this for the kids or for breakfast, I skip out the onions. It’s always well done in the Indian style. Anything less than well done gives Aditya an allergic reaction to the eggs.
Fried Tandoori Catfish
Every time I go shopping and we pass the meat counter, Aditya begs me for fish. This is one of his favorite dishes. I pan fry the fish. The yellow tinge is due to turmeric. I always add turmeric to the marinade. Besides its color, turmeric is supposed to anti- microbial properties. This is a good bonus to inhibit microbial growth in raw meats, while they are marinating.
Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
Loaded with blueberries and low in sugar these were a delicious treat. I tried making them as healthy as possible, The recipe had called for whole milk and butter. I used 1% fat milk and I can’t believe It’s not butter instead. I had made some chocolate muffins too. Those were good too, but not as good as these. The berries added a natural sweetness and moisture to the muffins. I will have to modify the chocolate muffin recipe to add more moisture to them.
Shrimp is another of Aditya’s favorites. I actually baked these in the toaster over. They were marinated in a ginger, garlic and jalapeno pepper paste.
This photograph was taken with my Canon DSLR as compared to my previous ones in this post which were taken with my Sony Powershot , point and shoot camera. And I did not digitally enhance this image.
Chicken drumsticks cooked almost anyway are a favorite with the kids. These were marinated the same way as the shrimp and baked in the toaster oven.
Homemade Whole Wheat English Muffins
I love English Muffins, but don’t like how sweet the whole wheat ones available in the market usually are. For these I used the recipe for regular muffins and substituted all-purpose flour with my home milled wheat flour. These were great and the kids loved them too.
Chicken Kalmi Kebab Curry
This is my take on the Kalmi Kebab recipe. My Mom has a recipe for it which had soy sauce added to the marinade, as far as I remember. I like a good gravy too. This dish does not have a lot, and needs to be cooked until most of the liquid has evaporated. I marinated the chicken with ginger-garlic paste, yoghurt, lemon juice and soy sauce. The gravy was created with two medium onions chopped fine. The onions add a sweetness which goes well with the dish. I also added a lot of jalapeno peppers. I have stopped using the Thai chilies I usually use as the kids cannot handle the heat. The jalapeno’s give heat, but also adds a lot of flavor which I like.
