Quick N Satisfying!

Good Friday was such a hectic day. In between morning and evening church services, I had planned to tackle a few chores around the house. Not to mention, to make a good, quick and filling supper as all three of us were fasting. And I know that Mark needs something more than regular Gujarati food for supper! So to please him, I decided to make puris. Hubby wanted to have khandvi for so long, I wanted to please him too! So here is the food, don't you think I killed 2 birds with one stone?! We had delicious supper which was equally healthy(minus the puris!). I made puris, khandvi, paneer bhurjee and gobi masala.

Paneer bhurjee is one of the easiest and quickest dish to make. Make paneer first, of course! Brown some onions, green chilis, garlic and ginger paste. Add mashed paneer and peas, with the usual spices like garam masala, turmeric and cumin powders and yes, salt and pepper, and you are done. I don't like to use red chili powder in this dish.

Gobi masala, another quick dish. I used the fried onion(store bought). Heat up the oil, add fried onions, cumin seeds, tomatoes. turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, paprika and cook for 3 minutes until nicely mixed. Add chopped cauliflower, potatoes and peas and cook till potatoes are done.

This is the beauty of day-to-day Indian cooking! No recipes, only method. You can adjust everything to your taste and you can have good results every single time.

Khandvi recipe will be in another post as this is Saturday morning and I need to run some more errands! Ciao!
