Turnips are one of the most hated vegetables on the planet, this is a brutal and honest fact. This root vegetable is known as Shalgam in Hindi , เฆถเฆฒเฆ—เฆฎ Shalgom in Bengali,  Kalamohare, Sherasa in Marathi, An-tam in Mizo,  Nalla avalu in Telegu, and has many other names worldover like  swede, neeps, rapes, rapa. Irrespective of its repute this vegetable is loved in my family. We not only eat it raw in our salads but also make its curry, which I will share soon and also its pickle, which is a must for the winters. As a kid my mother ensured I eat all types of vegetables which making faces. As I am writing this, a thought comes to my mind. My mother made all these despised vegetables so delicious that I never learnt to make faces. I guess that explains why I always encourage people to try out recipes from my mother if they ever hate any vegetable. You will find plenty on my space. 

My husband was one of those kids who always hated this sabji. So when my mother in law challenged me that I should make his son try this vegetable I was most happy to successfully convert him into a shalgam acceptor (I am not writing lover because you know old fears die hard :P). This vegetable is full of fibre and nutrition and you must try it out.

1. Remove the leaves of the turnips. Dont discard them, the fresh ones can be added to salads. Wash the turnips.

2. Remove the top thick skin and cut each into four pieces.



3. In a pressure pan keep a rack in the bottom and place the turnip on it. Add little water.

4. Also add salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder.




5. Close the lid of the pan and cook on high till first whistle or when it has reached its optimum pressure, then turn the flame on low and keep it simmering for another 10 minutes. It should be soft on poking.


6. Drain the water and place the boiled turnips in a bowl. Mash them using a potato masher,



7. Chop tomatoes, ginger and green chillies.


8. Add ghee or clarified butter in a wok. This recipe requires a good quantity of ghee as it is a key ingredient for the deliciousness of the dish. Do not cut short.  Also add chopped ginger and saute for a minute then add chopped tomatoes and green chilli and keep sauteing it till the tomatoes turn soft and gooey.




9. Season with salt this helps to soften the tomatoes faster.



10. Add mashed turnips and mix well with the tomatoes. 

11. Add chopped green Coriander and garam masala. Check again for salt or red chilli. If you find it less you can adjust at this stage.



12. Keep the turnips on a medium  flame and stirring till you see the ghee has started to ooze out and it has just about to start sticking to the base. That’s when you must turn the flame off. 

13. Transfer it to a serving bowl and enjoy this delicious dish with hot rotis. This will make you fall in love with its flavour.

It may not be fancy schmancy but the simplicity of that dish connects you to the higher self. My Soul food is my mother’s Pethey ki Sabzi or Punjabi style Pumpkin. This recipe makes this humble vegetable the most desired one. 


Back when I was a little girl I never liked any of these vegetables . By ‘these’ I mean any of these from the gourd and squashes family. As I grew up and was married away I realised that this is the kind of food I have grown on and is an integral part of my life. I started longing for pethey ki sabzi, bharwan karela, bharwan tinda, kaddhi chawal and more. This ignited the spark in me to learn these recipes from my mommy. I am glad my mommy taught me all of these and I can play  the role of perfect mommy for my sonny boy. For me growing on these dishes is a sign of perfect childhood ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mother is your first teacher, friend and a guide. But later in life you meet friends who make your life meaningful and you start learning new things from them. Life was kind on me and made me come across a friend on facebook in one of the Food Groups I am a member of. Sonu and me haven’t met ever but this friendship is beyond seeing each other. It is about the bond we share. This recipe of Stuffed Touri I learnt from her. It is how her mother in law likes it. Oh by the way I also learnt from her Authentic Kaddha Prasad which is already on my blog ๐Ÿ™‚


I have always been making touri the way my mommy has taught me, with waddi as we call it in Punjabi. You must try this Touri Waddiyan recipe as well. But Sonu taught me this new version which was as delicious as the other one. This is to add to my series of Stuffed Vegetables I have on my blog. If you are keen to try them, I have Stuffed Baby Brinjals Punjabi Style, Stuffed Bittergourd or Bharwan Karela, Stuffed Apple Gourd or Bhawan Tinda listed here, will be adding more shortly.


1. Take fresh smooth gourd, wash and peel its skin.



2. Cut it into three to four pieces.

3. Make a slit in the side but do not cut all the way. The piece should be intact. We are making a cavity for the filling.



4. For the filling. peel the onion skin and grate them using a grater.

5. Add turmeric powder to the grated onion along with salt and red chilli powder.




5. Also add Garam Masala and Chaat Masala.

7. Now in a pan heat some mustard oil and let it smoke out. Put the flame on low and carefully place the stuffed gourds into it.

This Ajwaini Arbi is my mother’s recipe and I love it! In Mexico I missed eating Colocasia or Arvi or Abri as it is called. So when I came back I ensured I made this every week in the season. The usual way of making is to simply fry it with some basic spices but then this way of cooking it with carom seeds makes it special and oh so delicious. 

A lot of people get rashes or itchiness when they peel colocassia. Undeniably I am one of those. I have tried putting mustard oil before peeling the skin, but that also doesn’t seem to work. So last resort is I have bought latex gloves and wear them. That seems to have worked wonders. Now I can cook my favourite vegetable without scratching like a puppy ๐Ÿ˜›

In Almora we get plenty of Arbi and also its leaves. This gives me opportunity to try out various versions of this humble root vegetable.I made Arbi Curry Masala specially for Navratri Fasting, as it is without Onion Garlic. I also made Arbi Ke Patton Ke Pattode, which is Colocasia leaves rolled fritters. You must try these they are amazingly lip smacking.

1. Wash Arbi and remove all the grit. 

2. Put the Arbi in Pressure pan with some water and  cook for 3 whistles or 5-7 minutes. Make sure the arbi doesn’t get overcooked and retains its shape. It will taste awful if becomes frail.



3. After boiling arbi drain it in a colander and let it cool down to room temperature.

4. Peel the skin off using a knife. The skin will be easy to remove once its boiled.



5. If the pieces are big in size cut them into halves.

6. In a wok heat some ghee or clarified butter. You can use other cooking oil as well. 

7. Add carom seeds or ajwain, cumin seeds and Amchur.




8. Once the seeds begin to crackle add the arbi and toss with the seeds. 

9. Add salt, red chilli powder and coriander powder and a little turmeric powder.




10. Mix everything together and cover with a plate or lid barely fitting the vegetables. Press down under and let it cook for 5-8 minutes, Then toss again and keep cooking till the arbi is crisp. Keep an eye don’t burn it ๐Ÿ™‚

11. Sprinkle with Garam Masala and Chopped Fresh Coriander Leaves. Serve hot with Roti or Tawa Naan.

Do you belong to the clan of LTT (Lauki, Tinda, Touri) repellents ๐Ÿ˜› ? Well Try this spicy recipe of stuffed tindey, plural of tinda, this will change your opinion and you will love eating these tasty vegetable. I also posted the recipe of Touri waddiyan some time back which was well appreciated by you. This encouraged me to post this delicious recipe given to me by my mommy.


Tinda is also known as Apple Gourd or Indian Round Gourd or Indian Baby Pumpkin. In Marathi it is known as dhemase, Tindsi in Rajasthan and Meha in Sindhi. But it is popular vegetable in North India specially Punjabi Cuisine. I grew up eating this dish and it is one of the comfort foods made by my mommy. The way the spices marry the gourd creates such amazing taste that its difficult to express in words. You must choose baby tindey for this, which has soft center and tender seeds.

1. Choose Baby tindey, usually smaller in size. Wash them and peel their skin using a peeler. If you find the seeds like this then the seeds should be scooped out.




2. Make a cross section insertion on top using a sharp knife. Make sure the cut does not cut the tinda into pieces. Oops I cut this one into half ๐Ÿ˜› Never mind still good to use.



3. In a bowl mix Salt, Turmeric powder, Red Chili powder.

4. Also add to this Amchur, Coriander powder, Sambhar Masala.




5. Also add Garam Masala and Asafoetida.

12. Take a steel lid just big enough to cover the tindey well. Do not use big ones, we want less space inside and more pressure to cook them.

13. Keep tossing and turning in between and cook for 15 minutes on medium high heat or until the tindas have cooked thoroughly. Insert a knife to check. Turn the flame off. Serve hot with Roti and Raita.

Butter Chicken or Murg Makhani Needs no introduction. It is one of the most popular dishes world over. When I was in Mexico and I was introduced to someone as an Indian, they would say Oh I love India! Taj Mahal, Butter Chicken and Mahatma Gandhi are the three key things they know about India ๐Ÿ™‚ Whenever I would invite my Mexican friends home for dinner, they insisted I would cook for them butter chicken.

That time I was naive to non veg cooking so never tried cooking it. After coming to India I gathered the courage and decided to choose a no fail recipe of Mr. Narula, a renowned and respected member of Chef at Large on FB. The Chicken was out of the world. Even the restaurants would fail in front of this. I know I should be modest but I am not because it was truly sinful and finger licking and I am proud of it ๐Ÿ™‚

8.Bake it in a preheated oven on 200 degree C for 30 minutes or until partially cooked. (Learn more about Oven temperatures and Conversions). In the meanwhile Soak some cashews in water for a few hours and grind them to paste.

14. In the same emptied kadhai add remaining butter.

15. Add chopped green chilies. Saute them for a minute.

16. Add roasted chicken. Leave out the juices for now to be used later. Mix them with butter on high heat for 3-4 minutes.

Attey Ka Halwa is a dense pudding made with whole wheat flour and clarified butter or ghee. And when this same halwa is made by Gurudwaras, Sikh Temple as an offering it becomes pious and is known as Kaddha Prasad or Babaji ka Prasad.  Its offered to devotees at all Sikh Gurudwaras across the globe. It is deliciously sinful but also very easy to make. Its laden with ghee and has a lot of calories but once in a while its okay to indulge in it. Right? ๐Ÿ˜› Like any halwa it requires the right proportion of ingredients and gets ready in no time. It is also known as degh, tribhavli for equal measures of sugar, flour and ghee.

My mother has always made Sooji ka Halwa but I never had Attey ka Halwa at home except Gurudwaras. I got this authentic recipe from a friend, Sonu Mahajan whom I met on a food group on FB. We have never met in real life and talked once on phone but I feel I have some relation with her , may be prior birth :). Whenever I talk to her on web I feel she is my sister from another Mother. I thank Almighty for making us friends and for the bond we share. This post goes out to you Sonu! Love you Partner :*


1. Add Ghee or Clarified butter in a wok or kadhai.


2. Add Whole Wheat Flour to the melted ghee.


3. Keep tossing it on medium low flame till it turns dark brown in colour. You can moderate the temperature of flame from high to medium to low. But ensure to keep tossing continuously for it can burn. It should take good 15 minutes.



4. In the meanwhile heat water in a container and bring it to a boil.



 5. Once the flour has roasted and achieved the dark brown colour add sugar and combine.




6. At this stage add water and turn the Flame OFF. No sim no low but OFF.


7. Now keep stirring it till the water and flour has become dense into a semi solid, gooey form. Ensure there are no lumps. The test of doneness is when the halwa has centred and leaves the sides.



 8. Serve hot and enjoy.

You can even try the Langar wali Dal served at Sikh Gurudwaras.

Durga Ashtami or the Eight day of the holy week, Navratras, where most Hindus fast in respect to the deity Durga. Its a Nine Day festival. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Shakti or Goddesses  are worshiped. This festival comes twice in a year, at the beginning of Spring and then at the beginning of Autumn. These two periods are taken as sacred opportunities for the worship of the Divine Mother Durga.

As part of the festival Hindus keep fasts where certain type of food is abstained while fruits and few vegetables along with milk products can be consumed. On the eighth day the fast is formally ended followed by a ritualistic ceremony. A special food is cooked which is offered to the God and then shared amongst devotees as Prasad. The food consists of Halwa, a dessert made from Sugar and Semolina, Dry spicy Black Bengal Gram, which are from the family of chickpeas and Puris, they are small, inflated, round shaped bread which is made from unleavened wheat flour deep dried in oil. This is a divine meal in the true sense.


The festival is very popular with small girls as they are considered as little deities known as kanjak. The little kanjaks are invited by the neighbourhood in their houses , worshipped and offered halwa, puri, channey and small gifts. I remember going to several houses and eating delicious food and counting my gifts at the end of the day ๐Ÿ™‚ What beautiful memories!

I have been fasting for Navratras ever since I was a 9 year old girl. Now I invite small kanjaks to my house and follow the the ritual. I made these delicious halwa puri and channe . I previously shared recipe of Sooji ka Halwa on my blog. On popular request I am sharing my mother’s recipe of Sookhey Kale Channey.


1. Soak Kale Channey or Black Bengal Gram in water overnight for at least 6-8 hours.  Put good amount of water for soaking. They will swell after soaking.
