Dhokla – Steamed Mung Bean cakes

As many of you know, I have Type 2 diabetes (my story). It is pretty much in the normal range now¬†with my low carb keto diet and intermittent fasting.

Panch Phoran

Aaloo Matar

Years ago, 2011, the Britannia Community centre asked me if I would organize events for Diwali. I called upon my dear friend Mital Gorman and we put together a series of dazzling events.. from sari draping, diva painting, Bollywood dancing to samosa making. The samosa making workshop was so popular that we ended up with a second equally packed workshop.   Here is a recipe for the samosa filling that Mital and I put together. […]

I cannot adequately stress the importance of soaking and sprouting, thus eating live foods! It is a regular occurrence in our home and getting into this habit will become […]

Raw Pestos

With all the mint, basil and cilantro growing this time if the year, I’ve been making a lot of spreads and adding them to my home made raw crackers! You can also spread them on vegetables. Please note that I often substitute the nuts I used in each recipe for pine nuts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds. Both make about 1 cup. Nutrition is based on 8 servings.
