Sweet & Tangy Matar Shalgam

khatta meetha shalgam
Shalgam is widely available these days. I had not tried any shalgam recipes until last year, but this year, it's different. I have experimented a lot with this vegetable, which comes with multiple health benefits that I have already discussed in my earlier post.

This post gets inspiration from my dear friend Anna's shalgam matar post. I had got really late for lunch today. Just a quick glance at her recipe gave me the inspiration to go ahead with the recipe with my own modifications. The result did not disappoint; rather, I have made the tangiest shalgam matar today.

Let's come back to the recipe:








Ingredients
Shalgam - 2
Matar (peas) - 1/2 cup (more or less depending on your choice)
Onion- 2
Tomato-2
Ginger-garlic paste- 1 tbsp
Gur (jaggery)- 1 small piece
Salt as per taste
Coriander powder
Green chilly
Dry red chilly- 1
Mustard oil- 2 tbsp
Hing- 1 pinch
Jeera
Sabut dhaniya- 1/2 tsp (smash in your mortar and pestle...or you may use your rolling pin (belan) - In the recipe I will mention it as coarse dhaniya.

Chatpatta Shalgam Procedure

  1. Pressure cook shalgam in little water with salt for 2 whistles.
  2. Chop onions, tomatoes and keep aside.
  3. Cut shalgam into small pieces.
  4. Take a vessel (kadahi).
  5. Drop oil. Once it reaches the smoking point, throw in hing and dry red chilly.
  6. Next add jeera.
  7. Let it splutter.
  8. Now add coarse dhaniya.
  9. Fry for a while.
  10. Now add ginger-garlic paste and stir fry until the raw smell is gone.
  11. If you are using green chilly, you may add it now or later. Depends on you. I did not use.
  12. Next add chopped/sliced onion and fry until they turn translucent.
  13. Now add chopped tomatoes and fry until the masala leaves oil. 
  14. Drop in the gur. You may cut it into very small pieces or grate it. I simply dropped one small piece into the masala. Stir very well.
  15. You may sprinkle little water if the masala sticks to the bottom of the vessel.
  16. Add salt, haldi. Mix.
  17. Now add shalgam and matar.
  18. Mix very well.
  19. Cook on medium flame for 5 minutes.
  20. Now stir well and then cook and cover for another 8-10 minutes. Just keep checking that it doesn't burn.
  21. If it sticks, add little more water to prevent burning.
  22. Check if done.
  23. Sprinkle coriander powder. Mix and enjoy chatpatta shalgam with rice or roti.
  24. If you want, you may mash shalgam once done and enjoy khatta meeta shalgam matar bharta.

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat
Yes, my dear…

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
