Curried Almond Sweet Potato Soup

October 3 2017 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Curried Almond Sweet Potato SoupThis Curried Almond Sweet Potato Soup has it all: great taste, vibrant color, and the creamy goodness of almond butter. For this recipe, I use Frontier brand organic curry powder, a heady blend of coriander, turmeric, cumin, mustard, fenugreek, cardamom, nutmeg, red pepper, cinnamon, and cloves, but most any curry spice blend should perform well. For a thinner soup, stir in a small amount of nondairy milk during the final heating. Curried Almond Sweet Potato Soup - 1 tablespoon neutral vegetable oil or 1/­­4 cup water - 1 large yellow onion, chopped - 1 clove garlic, chopped - 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes - 5 cups vegetable broth or water - 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks - 2/­­3 cup almond butter - 1 tablespoon curry powder - 1/­­4 teaspoon cayenne pepper - Salt - 1/­­4 cup chopped roasted almonds - Heat the oil or water in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. - Add the tomatoes, broth, and sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cook, uncovered, until the potatoes are soft, about 30 minutes. - Stir in the almond butter, curry powder, cayenne, and salt to taste. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. - Puree the mixture in a blender or food processor until smooth, or use an immersion blender to puree the soup right in the pot. Heat the soup over low heat until hot. Serve sprinkled with the chopped almonds. From The Nut Butter Cookbook by Robin Robertson. (C)2014 Robin Robertson.

Indian Burgers

August 26 2017 Vegan Dad 

Indian Burgers As promised, here is the burger recipe to go with the naan bun recipe. The burger is durable, but is better suited to the oven than the grill.  INGREDIENTS Makes 6 large burgers - 1 medium onion, minced - 1/­­2 cup coarsely grated zucchini - 1/­­2 tsp salt - 2 cups chopped cauliflower (small pieces) - 2 cups small diced potato - 2 cloves garlic, minced - 2 tsp minced ginger - 1/­­4 cup chopped cilantro - 1 tsp turmeric - 2 tsp garam masala - 1 tsp cumin - 1 tsp chili powder - 1/­­4 tsp ground fenugreek - 1 tsp salt - 1/­­4 cup vital wheat gluten - 1/­­4 cup chickpea flour METHOD 1. Mix together onion, zucchini, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside. 2. Blanch cauliflower and potato in boiling salted water for 5 mins. Remove from boiling water and plunge into cold water. Drain. Rinse again with cold water and drain well. 3. By this time the onion and zucchini should have released a bunch of water. Squeeze out as much water as you can with your hands and place onion/­­zuke mixture in a new bowl. 4. Add 2/­­3 of the potato/­­cauliflower mixture. Mash the remaining 1/­­3 of the mixture with a fork, and add to the bowl. Add the garlic, ginger, cilantro, spices and salt and mix well. 5. Add the gluten and chickpea flours and mix well. 6. If necessary, mush/­­squeeze the mixture with your hands to bring it together. 7. Line a baking sheet with parchment and lightly oil it. 8. Divide mixture into 6 and press into a ring mold to make the burgers. Mist with oil and place in the fridge to chill. 9. While burgers are chilling, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake burgers for 10 mins, then flip, spray with oil, and bake for another 10 mins. Let stand for 5 mins before serving. As you can see from the pic, I served these with with onion rings on top. I used this recipe, but cut the onions into rings and fried them separately. I dressed the burgers with vegan mayo, green tomato chutney, lettuce, and tomato.

Palak (Spinach Curry)

February 10 2017 Manjula's kitchen 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});   Palak – Spinach Curry This is a simple spinach curry, cooked with milk and has a delicious unique taste. This was my fathers favorite dish in winter time. A creamy savory dish with mild spices. Serve with Makki ki Roti, or Naan. - 12 oz spinach (washed and remove the stems this should be about 8 cups of packed spinach) - 1 Tbsp ghee (clarified butter) - 1/­­2 tsp fenugreek seeds (mathi seeds) - 1/­­2 tsp turmeric (haldi) - 1 Tbsp chopped ginger (adrak) - 2 Tbsp green chili (chopped, I prefer serrano chili) - 1 tsp salt - 2 Tbsp besan (gram flour) - 1/­­2 cup chopped tomato in small pieces - 4 cups whole milk For Seasoning - 2 Tbsp ghee (clarified butter) - 1/­­2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) - 1/­­2 tsp red chili powder -  In a small bowl, mix the besan with half cup of milk to make a lump free batter and set aside. - Blend the spinach, ginger and green chilies using about 1/­­2 cup of milk. Spinach should not be pasty. I prefer to use food processor. - Heat the ghee in a saucepan over medium high moderately. Add fenugreek seeds, and turmeric. Stir for a few seconds. -  Add the spinach, and milk and turn the heat to medium. Bring spinach to boil. Lower the heat to medium low and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes , stir occasionally, scraping the sides. -  Add besan batter, and salt, and let it cook for about 10-15 minutes , stir occasionally, scraping the sides. -  Spinach curry should be thick batter consistency.

If the cumin seeds crack right away, the oil is ready. Add cumin seeds and turn off the heat and add red chili powder and about 2 tablespoons of water this will prevent spices to burn. - Pour the seasoning over spinach curry. Spinach curry is ready to serve. Serve hot with Naan, Roti, Paratha. The post Palak (Spinach Curry) appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Easy Recipe from one Basic Gravy

July 6 2016 Manjula's kitchen 

Easy Recipe from one Basic Gravy Most of the Indian dishes you prepare will involve some type of gravy. Learning how to make a gravy is useful because you can pair the gravy with many different vegetables and come up with unique dishes that are easy to prepare. You can then pair the gravy with vegetables you have in fridge or freezer and – voila – dinner is prepared! For a great basic gravy, check out my Mattar Paneer recipe. Here are some suggestions using this recipe. You can make small changes to this recipe for a variety of dishes. For example, instead of mattar paneer this can be just mattar, or just paneer, or aloo mattar, or just aloo, or paneer. Also you can use a frozen vegetable mix like (peas, corn, carrots, beans) or add mushrooms. The possibilities are endless! Try adding a few spoons of cream in the gravy to make a richer dish for a party.  You can add about a tablespoon of dry fenugreek leaves (kasoori methi). This provides a very unique flavor. You can freeze your gravy in small portions. It will stay good for up to two months. Having gravy readily available will make your cooking a lot easier and less stressful. Enjoy!

Easy Weeknight Restaurant style Indian entree. Serve over Naan or rice. Vegan Gluten-free Recipe. Soy-free Nut-free option. Methi Malai Matar (Fenugreek/­­Greens and peas in creamy white sauce), Methi malai paneer (fenugreek and Paneer cheese cubes in creamy sauce) are some Mughlai dishes you might find in some Indian restaurants. The dishes use malai or dairy cream and cheese or other dairy ingredients. Its like a spiced up Spinach dip, with lots of complex flavor! But this version is free of all that, tastes amazing, and comes together quickly as well. Fresh fenugreek leaves are a favorite to use in the dish when in season. If you find some then definitely use them fresh, else use dried fenugreek with greens of choice. Serve with hot garlic Naan or rice/­­grains or make a bowl with roasted veggies, add to wraps or on a pizza!. Dried fenugreek (kasuri methi) is available in Indian stores and online on amazon. Definitely get some, as I use it in many recipes, so it will not just get stored and expire :). Fenugreek has an amazing flavor profile, bitter but pleasing. You can use ground mustard + celery seed as a substitute when used in small quantities. Continue reading: Vegan Methi Malai Paneer Tofu – Tofu and Fenugreek/­­Greens in Creamy SauceThe post Vegan Methi Malai Paneer Tofu – Tofu and Fenugreek/­­Greens in Creamy Sauce appeared first on Vegan Richa.

February 12 2017 Vegan Richa 

Veg Kolhapuri Recipe – Veggies in Sesame Coconut Tomato SauceVeg Kolhapuri Recipe – Veggies in Sesame Coconut Tomato Kolhapuri Sauce. Use up the leftover veggies in this flavorful sauce. Anything goes. Indian Version of Sloppy Veggie Sandwiches. Add cooked beans for added protein. Vegan Soy-free Nut-free Recipe. Gluten-free with gf buns or flatbread Kolhapuri cuisine is a regional cuisine from a town in the state of Maharashtra in India. The region has its own chilies and is know for hot, deep colored, spicy dishes and sauces. The cuisine has its own spice blend called kolhapuri masala which uses spices, coconut, fenugreek and chilies. I make a simplified version of the masala blend (hence not totally authentic). The masala blend works well with veggies, or added to curries/­­sauces and added to roasted veggies.  The veggies are boiled to al dente and combined with a sauce of blended onion, tomato and a roasted Kolhapuri Masala spice blend. The resulting dish is a delicious veggie curry that can be served as sloppy sandwiches. Serve these kolhapuri veggies with crackers, toasted dinner rolls, garlic bread or flatbread. This dish is somewhat like Pav bhaji, that is a veggie mash street food served with dinner rolls. Pav bhaji can be found in my cookbook. Both these dishes are excellent to use up all kinds of veggies. There is also a pressure cooker/­­ Instant Pot option in the recipe. Make some and let me know in the comments how you like it!

February 3 2017 Manjula's kitchen 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});   Kachori topped with Kadhi Kachori topped with Kadhi this is a Rajasthani specialty that is simply delicious. There are times that we like to indulge ourselves or want to make a special treat for guests, but there is not enough time in the day to prepare such dishes. For times like this, I like to make semi-homemade recipes. This dish is perfect for this and can be presented beautifully. For Kachori - 4 peices Dal Kachori (Using frozen Kachori, which are readily available in Indian grocery stores.) For Kadhi - 1 cup yogurt - 1/­­4 cup besan (gram flour) - 2 Tbsp oil (canola or vegetable oil) - 1/­­2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) - 1/­­8 tsp asafetida (hing) - 1/­­2 tsp fenugreek seeds (mathi) - 1/­­2 tsp turmeric (haldi) - 1/­­2 tsp red chili powder - 1 tsp salt - 2 Tbsp cilantro (finely chopped, hara dhania) - 1/­­4 tsp gram masala - 4 cups water For garnishing - 1 Tbsp ginger (thinly sliced) - 1 Tbsp green chilies (thinly sliced) - 2 tsp lemon juice - 1/­­4 tsp salt - For garnishing mix all the ingredients together before we start the Kadhi, this will get enough time to marinate ginger and green chili. Set aside. - Mix besan and turmeric with yogurt until smooth, this should be lump free. Add three cups of water slowly and mix well. - Heat the oil in a saucepan. Test the heat by adding one cumin seed to the oil. If the cumin seeds crack right away, the oil is ready. Add cumin seeds and asafetida. - When the cumin seeds crack, turn off the heat and add fenugreek seeds, and red chili powder. Stir for a few seconds. Add the yogurt mixture and turn the heat to medium. Keep stirring until the kadhi comes to a boil. -  Add remaining water and let it come to boil. Add salt. Turn the heat to medium low. Let the kadhi cook about 20-30 minutes , stir occasionally. If needed to adjust thickness, add boiled water. Kadhi should be pourable consistency. Add garam masala, and cilantro, mix and turn off the heat. - While the Kadhi is cooking bake, or fry the kachories per the instructions on the box. I have baked the kachori. Let them cool of then break it open. -  Serve Kadhi over Kachori and garnish with marinated green chili and ginger pieces. Instead of frozen kachori, you can also make these fresh Kachori at home using my recipe.   The post Kachori with Kadhi appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Versatile Mung Dal Stew with Healing Spices

January 5 2017 Golubka Kitchen 

Versatile Mung Dal Stew with Healing Spices This post was created in partnership with Amira. This month we are focusing on recipes that will hopefully be helpful to those wanting to hit the reset button after all the holiday eating and drinking. I wanted a very manageable weekday dinner to be the first in the series, because we haven’t had one up in a while, and because I myself have been on the hunt for some new but trustworthy, quick and wholesome meal ideas. Most of my focus right now is on completing the kitchen renovation, a good part of which my husband and I have been doing ourselves. It’s been dragging on much longer than we expected – a common theme when it comes renovations, as I hear. We are finally down to the small finishing touches, but they somehow seem to be the hardest to complete. Cooking up large batches of un-elaborate, nourishing dishes like this stew to have on hand during the week has been one of my strategies for staying sane throughout this whole process. It’s amazing how helpful a home-cooked meal can be during times of stress. When looking for inspiration for balanced winter weeknight meals, I often turn to South Indian cuisine for its array of delicious vegetarian dishes and Ayurveda-approved ingredients. This particular stew is based on a recipe for sambar – a mung dal (yellow split mung beans that are protein-rich and affordable) stew that comes in hundreds of variations. The base for sambar is most commonly made up of mung dal that’s been cooked down to a porridge-like consistency and spiced, after which almost anything goes. You can include one or many stew-friendly vegetables in season, as well as other fun add ins like desiccated coconut. I love the versatility of this dish and usually just add in whatever vegetables or greens I have on hand. For this version, I kept things simple and only added chopped butternut squash and dried coconut – it can be as simple or as involved as you’d like. The ingredient list might seem long, but it’s mostly composed of spices, which play a huge role in building flavor in this otherwise modest stew. Each spice also brings its unique healing properties to the table – fennel helps aid digestion, turmeric is anti-inflammatory, fenugreek helps with blood sugar balance and much, much more. Like many Indian dishes, sambar is traditionally served over rice, and I’ve been truly enjoying serving it over Amira’s fragrant Thai Jasmine Brown Rice. Amira sent me a few of their premium long grain rice varieties to try, and I was consistently impressed with their quality and how distinctly different each kind tasted. Besides the jasmine brown rice, the variety that stood out to me is their Smoked Basmati Rice, which has a very unique smoked flavor and is really good in salads, and as a base for all kinds of veggie bowls. I’m crazy about smoked foods, so that one really hit the spot. If you see Amira rice in your grocery store, give it a try, I think you’ll really enjoy it! Versatile Mung Dal Stew with Healing Spices   Print Serves: 3-4 Ingredients 3 cups water ½ cup mung dal ¼ teaspoon turmeric ¼ teaspoon cumin ¼ teaspoon whole fenugreek seeds (optional) 3 sprigs fresh curry leaves (optional) 1 small yellow onion - chopped ½ medium butternut squash - peeled and cubed ¼ cup desiccated coconut sea salt 1 tablespoon red chili powder 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil ¼ teaspoon whole black mustard seeds 1 whole dried red chili - torn in half ⅛ teaspoon whole fennel seeds 1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice 1½ cups cooked rice of your choice - for serving cilantro - for garnish (optional) coconut milk or yogurt - for garnish (optional) Instructions Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium pot. Have a tea kettle or another pot with about 1 more cup of hot water ready, in case you need more water later in the process. Once 3 cups of water in the pot are boiling, add mung dal, turmeric, cumin, fenugreek and curry leaves (if using). Lower heat to establish a steady simmer and cook, covered, for 20 minutes. Mix periodically to ensure the mung dahl doesnt stick to the pan. Discard curry sprigs, if using. Add onion, squash, desiccated coconut, and salt to the pot. If it seems like there isnt enough liquid in the pot, add a little more hot water from the tea kettle until the vegetables have room to simmer in the water, keeping the dal consistency like a soupy porridge. Continue simmering, covered, for another 20 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked through. Stir in chili powder at half time. Mix periodically to prevent any sticking. Once the vegetables are around 5 minutes away from being done, warm ghee/­­oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add mustard seeds and let toast for about 30 seconds, tossing all the while. Add the chili and fennel seeds and toast for another 30 seconds or until fennel is toasted in color and fragrant. Add the toasted spices along with the ghee/­­oil from the pan into the pot with the stew, mix it in and let simmer, covered, for another 5 minutes. Once stew is done cooking, discard the pepper and mix in the lemon/­­lime juice. Taste and adjust the salt. Serve stew over rice, garnished with cilantro and coconut milk/­­yogurt if desired. Notes 1. You can add any vegetables/­­greens you have on hand in place of the butternut squash here and simmer until done, thats what makes this stew so versatile. 2. Curry leaves are completely optional here, but if you can get your hands on some, add them - their unique flavor works very well in this stew. 3. Traditional sambar calls for hing and tamarind. If you have one or both, add ⅛ teaspoon of hing to the pan with the toasting spices, towards the end and add to the stew with the rest of the toasted spices and ghee/­­oil. Add 2 teaspoons tamarind paste in place of the lemon/­­lime juice and simmer stew for another 5 minutes to let the flavor incorporate. 3.5.3226 You might also like...

August 26 2016 That's Food Darling 

WEEKNIGHT COCONUT CURRY W/ SWEET POTATO, RED PEPPER & SHIITAKE Hello there! It was and is a stormy and intense time over here. The last year Ive been subject to constant change. After lifelong struggles, I finally I got the name of my up until then 'mysterious' disease (thank god!), underwent a dire needed belly surgery and now, Im in to rest and recover. My physical condition yet matches a roller coaster ride, whereas everything you want is being healthy and living a life of easiness and abundance after all. Keeping up is far from easy but I wanna get better more than ever. Lets hit the 'reset button', yaaas? Im ready to embrace the new, its time to optimistically move on. Are you with me? Well, lets start with a tasty coconut curry recipe! Curries simply are soul food to me. Especially, I like to make them from scratch and savor them on a weekday evening. Slowly savoring a bowl of curry really calms me down. Curries are nourishing, hugely satisfying meals that, however, are light enough to not weigh you down at the same time, you know? This curry is one of my favorites as the flavors are pretty well balanced. Youll see! I really recommend you preparing the vegetables and the coconut curry base separately, so that the vegetables remain tasty and wont become mushy (what happens quickly!). I prefer to separately roast the vegetables for the curry in the oven, while simmering the coconut curry base on the stove simultaneously. The outcome is way tastier than itd be when cooking everything in one pot. I promise! Btw, I yet haven't met anyone who doesn't like a good curry, it's quite happy food, so invite friends for weeknight dinner and cook for them.   WEEKNIGHT COCONUT CURRY W/­­ SWEET POTATO, RED PEPPER & SHIITAKE   |2 servings|   INGREDIENTS 2 tbsp coconut oil 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into medium dices 10-12 shiitake mushrooms, cut into slices 1 red bell pepper, cut into slices sea salt to taste 1/­­2  can (200ml) full-fat coconut milk 1 heaped tsp moringa powder (optional) thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated and squeezed 1 garlic clove, grated a pinch of cayenne pepper 1 heaped tsp homemade curry powder (see recipe below) 1 tbsp brown miso paste 1 tsp rice vinegar juice of half a lime   serve with:   a handful of cashews, toasted and chopped a handful fresh mint, chopped  basmati rice for 2 persons, cooked homemade curry powder:   1 tsp turmeric 1/­­2  tsp of each fennel, coriander and cumin seeds 1/­­4  tsp fenugreek seeds 1/­­4  tsp cinnamon   HOW TO MAKE   For the curry powder slightly toast all the seeds in a pan, then put all ingredients into a mortar, and ground until you have a fine curry powder mix. For the vegetables, preheat oven to 200°C. Collect sweet potatoes, shiitake mushrooms and red peppers on a large baking tray that's lined with baking paper. Drizzle the melted coconut oil and sea salt. Toss to coat well and spread in a single layer. Bake in the upper third of the oven for about twenty minutes, or until the vegetables are slightly browned and crisp.     While the vegetables roast, both cook the basmati rice and the coconut curry sauce. For the curry, warm the coconut milk over medium heat. Add the moringa powder, ginger juice, grated garlic, curry powder, cayenne pepper and miso paste, and stir to mix.  Let everything simmer on low for 5 minutes. Stir in the rice vinegar and lime juice. Taste for seasoning. It should be somewhat thick, but still thin enough to pour over the rice and vegetable mix, you know? Add broth if needed.  For serving, serve each bowl with a scoop of basmati rice, divide roasted vegetables onto bowls, and pour over the coconut curry sauce. Garnish with cashews and mint. Serve warm and enjoy!

Using your spatula, lightly press the entire surface of the roti to help it cook all the way through. Put the ghee on both sides of the roti while cooking. Grill the roti from both sides making sure it is golden-brown on both sides.  Remove from heat. - Repeat with the remaining dough, until they are all done. Serve them hot.

Broccoli Chickpea Stuffed Flatbread – Broccoli Paratha Yeast-free

February 16 2016 Vegan Richa 

Broccoli Chickpea Stuffed Flatbread – Broccoli Paratha Yeast-free Stuffed Parathas used to be a favorite breakfast, lunch or evening snack when growing up. There was always some dough in the fridge, so it was matter of grating or mashing some veggies or other fillings, cooking them slightly if needed, and using as stuffing. Parathas are generally served with Indian pickles which commonly use raw mango, lime, chilies or vegetables preserved in an oil base with spices such as mustard seeds, fennel, fenugreek seeds,salt etc. These pickles are available in Indian stores or online. The stuffed flatbreads can also be used anywhere where you use flatbreads, as a side with curries or soups, or with a dip.  These Broccoli parathas have shredded broccoli and chickpeas with spices stuffed into a wheat dough. Use other cooked beans or lentils of choice and other spices of choice for many variations. The process of making the dough and rolling it out seems tedious, but it gets easy with practice. For a gluten-free paratha, see my book for the chia flatbread dough that works well for making stuffed flatbread or use this Sweet Potato gluten-free flatbread dough or use any chapati/­­roti dough of choice.  These flatbreads have the veggie stuffing inside them. You can also add the veggies directly in the dough while kneading like this Squash flatbread- Lauki Paratha. Do you like stuffed flatbreads? What is favorite stuffing?  Continue reading: Broccoli Chickpea Stuffed Flatbread – Broccoli Paratha Yeast-freeThe post Broccoli Chickpea Stuffed Flatbread – Broccoli Paratha Yeast-free appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Dosa (Rice and Urad Dal Crepe)

January 14 2016 Manjula's kitchen 

Dosa (Rice and Urad Dal Crepe) Dosa is a popular South Indian delicacy which looks like a crepe. Dosa is a crisp and thin pancakes made of a rice and urad dal batter. Traditionally Dosa is served with samber, aloo masala and coconut chutney. This recipe will serve 3.  Ingredients: - 1-1/­­2 cups rice - 1/­­2 cup urad dal washed - 1/­­2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds - 1 teaspoon salt - 5 tablespoons oil or clarified butter, ghee Method - Wash rice and dal changing water three to four times. Soak rice mix and fenugreek seeds in about 4 cups of water for at least six hours. - In a blender, blend the rice and dal mix to very creamy texture. Use only as little water as needed to blend. Using too much water for blending will not give the desired creamy texture. Use the same water dal was soaked to grind the batter as that helps in fermentation. - Add the salt to batter, cover and ferment the batter in a warm place for about a day. Batter will be about one and half time in volume. - When ready to make dosa whip the batter for few seconds. Add water as needed, batter should be pourable, or like pancake consistency. - Place a non-stick- heavy skillet over medium heat. Test by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. The water should sizzle right away. - Pour 1/­­2 cup of the batter mixture into the skillet and spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Starting from the center, spiral outward until evenly spread, about eight inches in diameter thin circle. - Smear about 2 teaspoons oil over it and along the edges and cook till the dosa turns brown in color and crisp. This point flip the dosa using a flat spatula, for about 15 seconds. - Dosa is ready, repeat with remaining batter. Every time wipe the skillet with wet towel that helps spreading the dosa. - Serve with coconut chutney, aloo masala and sambhar.
