Thanks for writing back after reading the brunch piece. In all fairness, I should be giving you some good combos so that your coming weekend does not have the ever looming problem of WHAT TO COOK!
Try these – Appam with Kaikari Ishtew, Vermicelli upma, Ginger tomato thuviyal and Filter coffee. Or – Peethiwali puri with Veg Makhanwala, Kasuri paneer tikka and Suji aur badam ka halwa.
If the kids want pasta etc, give them more than expected with Fresh dough pizza,
Fried herbed mozzarella, Cool pasta with red pepper dressing and Tiramisu.
As the rains evoke massive hunger pangs have a parantha party – Stuffed mooli ke paranthe, Mushroom stuffed tawa samosas, Gobhi ke paranthe, Fruit and veg raita, Burfi parantha with rose and rabdi.
Or if you want to impress try your hand at Sultani dal, Varqi parantha, Ananas muzzafar.
All these and more await your attention at http://www.sanjeevkapoor.com
I have been talking to a lot of folks about how to manage the costs of cooking at home (and in my restaurants) what with every thing just going up, up, up! There is no need to waste food and cook in large quantities at home. In fact, optimisation is the need of the hour. In case you do have any leftovers, recycle immediately at the next meal….like moong dal left from lunch can be used to knead dough for paranthas for dinner, or steamed rice can be tempered in a variety of ways….vegetables can be used up in roti rolls, and chicken or meat can be deboned and used to make jiffy biryanis. In case you would like to talk more about these ideas, lets… just let me know.
For the time being, some recipes that are tasty but do not pinch the daily budget.
Till I write again
