Japanese Zucchini and Onion - Updated


This is another old recipe on my blog where the picture didn't do the dish justice.  Here is the link to the old recipe.  Definitely does not look appetizing but it is one of our favourite ways to eat zucchini.  I use a vegetable peeler to make the zucchini into ribbons.  You could also use a spiralizer but I prefer this method.

Palak Kheema {Spinach & Ground Beef}


Growing up my mom would make Palak ki Bhaaji which is essentially Palak Gosht.  I loved eating it with rice.  It would take some time as you have to tenderize the meat.  Awhile back my husband said to me that it's been a long time since I made Palak Kheema.  Honestly, I don't remember ever making Palak Kheema but I thought I would give it a try.  I essentially followed my mom's recipe for Palak ki Bhaaji with a couple of changes since her recipe was very simple.  It turned out great and has become a regular at our dinner table.  I used frozen spinach because I always have some in my freezer.  We love to have this with rice.  Hasan loves to top his with Masoor ki Daal and I love adding yogurt.

Easy Veal Khorma


This is one of the original recipes from my blog...back when I had no clue about photography and lighting.  I had made it with chicken.  Today I've made the same khorma using veal.  You can easily switch up the protein for chicken as the original recipe.  For this recipe, I do not recommend using a pressure cooker.  I find making recipes that have a lot of yogurt tend to burn in my pressure cooker. 

Umami Cream of Mushroom Soup {Low Fat}


Today I'm sharing another soup recipe.  This has become a favourite in our home and I've probably made it 4 times in the last two weeks.  The last two times, I doubled the recipe!  I've called this Umami because I've used umami seasoning that I had picked up at Trader Joe's when I was in America during the winter break.  I didn't need to add any salt as the umami seasoning and vegetable broth had enough.  This soup will be great even without the umami seasoning.  I've made this a low fat recipe, by using sour cream instead of heavy or table cream.  When I first made the soup, there was a lot of clumping of the flour.  To solve this, I added one cup of broth at a time and whisked thoroughly.  This reduced the clumps of flour to a minimum.  The last two times I've made this soup, I was not able to find dried porcini mushrooms in the grocery store and it still turned out delicious.  I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we do!
