Masoor Dal Tadka (Indian Split Red Lentil Dal)

yesterday 13:55 Vegan Richa 

Masoor Dal Tadka (Indian Split Red Lentil Dal)Restaurant-Style Masoor Dal Tadka (Indian Split Red lentil Dal tempered with whole spices) is easy and quick to make, super comforting, creamy, and oh so flavorful! Glutenfree Soyfree Nutfree Fans of dals will love this creamy Restaurant Style Masoor Dal Tadka! Dal (also spelled as dhal or daal or Dahl) is one of my favorite meals – versatile, healthy, filling, and deliciously warming on a cold day. Masoor dal is split red lentils, which are popular and easy to find at many grocery stores in the US. They are cheap and cook quickly making them a great choice for a simple weeknight meal. Red lentils are also available whole and they will work as well. Just cook a few minutes longer. Dal can be made thick,or thin and soupier, and you can use any kind of lentil. The tadka or tempering adds layers of complex flavors to the dal. The tempering can be mixed in into the dal or just drizzled on top. This restaurant style version has not one but two tadkas or tempering to infuse with a lot of flavor. A small amount of  yogurt adds tang and brings the flavors together. A pinch of cloves brings out the garlic and savory flavor. This dal is going wow everyone! You can make this a thinner Dal with additional water or non dairy milk and serve it as a warming soup! Is Dal a soup or a curry? You will often find Dals translated into English either as soups or curries. I would say they are more a soup than a curry, but also neither. Dals are Dals. Different types of lentils and beans cooked with and without added veggies or ingredients and tempered with whole or ground spices or just aromatics. A general everyday Dal does not have any added cream or coconut milk. Split lentils will cook to a soft state and get creamy. Or if you like them less broken down, then cook a few mins less. Dals like Dal makhani have some added cream. Restaurants might add additional butter or sometimes cream to make Dals more appealing. As with ethnic cuisines the translations dont always do justice. Indian Dals are often called lentil curry, which seems to be a logical translation. But lentil curry is also a term used for lentils cooked  with curry powder (which isnt Indian) and coconut milk. The creamy, higher fat, slightly sweet lentil curry is different from(and often loved more compared to) a lighter lentil and water based and spiced Dals. Dals are savory, light and just Dals.

25 Best Vegan Iron Rich Recipes

January 18 2022 Vegan Richa 

25 Best Vegan Iron Rich RecipesLearn all about iron-rich vegan foods and how to incorporate them into a real-world, everyday meals for optimal absorption in this round-up of delicious iron-rich recipes.  Iron deficiency is quite a common nutrient deficiency in the world and affects vegans and omnivores alike. The good news is that you can get all the iron your body needs from Plants. When we think about iron, our minds wander to red meat etc. But there are lots of plant-based foods containing good amounts of this essential mineral as well. Iron Absorption Now, one thing is choosing iron-rich foods. The other thing is making sure your body can absorb that iron.  You can enhance your body’s absorption of iron by drinking citrus juice or eating or adding other foods rich in vitamin C at the same time that you eat high-iron foods. Another little trick: Use a cast-iron skillet. Cooking in a cast iron skillet can add significant amounts of iron to your food and into your body. It’s often really surprising foods that contain a lot of iron. Like Blackstrap molasses 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses has 3.6 mg. You can add molasses to vegan baked beans, any baked oatmeal recipe, or add some to salad dressings. Mix and match lentils and beans or beans and spinach to make an iron packed meal. If your readings are consistently low even after eating thoughtfully, consult your doctor about it. People can have absorption issues and will need supplementation even with an iron-rich diet. For high protein options, check this collection! Without further ado, here are some hearty vegan meals to try that combine iron-rich foods with ingredients that help to absorb it well. Best Vegan Recipes using Iron rich foods Lentils 1 cup of lentils has 6.6 mg iron.

Spicy Urad Dal (Black Gram Lentil Dal)

January 10 2022 Vegan Richa 

Spicy Urad Dal (Black Gram Lentil Dal)Spicy Urad Dal – a simple but delicious vegan Indian daal recipe with black gram lentils in a fragrant Indian gravy that makes for the perfect comfort food dish to add to your weeknight or weekend dinner rotation. Gluten-free. This spicy urad dal is the perfect dish to spice up a simple weeknight or weekend dinner. You will love this dish not just for the mouthwatering blend of spices and depth of flavor but also for its heartiness. Serve it with roti, flatbread, brown rice or white rice or cauliflower rice and a simple plant-based curry or a spices veggie side for a nutritious meal that will have everyone licking their plates clean. Let’s talk about dal for a moment. Most Indian chefs have a half a dozen or so lentils in their pantry, each with a distinct flavor and texture. But types you’ll find most commonly used in dal recipes are chana dal (Bengal gram dal(split brown chickpea)), tuvar dal (split pigeon peas), masoor dal (split red lentils), moong dal (split green mung beans), and urad dal (split black gram/­­split black lentils). You can see all the Indian and English names and pictures of the Dals here Like many dal recipes, this spicy urad dal starts with boiling the lentils to the preferred tenderness (I do this in a pressure cooker but you can do it on the stovetop as well, see notes). To get the flavors going we incorporate a method called tempering, or tadka, the process of heating oil and adding a few spices to it. Here, we add whole cloves, cumin and bay leaves. What is Urad Dal? Urad dal are split, black urad or black lentils (vigna mungo) . These are not the same as the beluga lentils you might have at home. You can use urad dal without skin or a with skin in this recipe, but you definitely want to use the split kind. White/­­beige is the type without skin, the other will be black on one side. Urad dal is also lower carb among the dals. Whole Urad or whole black gram is used to make Dal makhani. You can use those here as well, just make sure to co them long enough. (40 minutes in instant pot). You can also use the petite yellow lentils – moong dal which is split green mung beans. Or use red lentils. The naming in various stores varies and yellow lentils can be round or the long ones. The long ones are moong dal. See pictures on myDals post to find the right dals. This year I plan to make a lot more Indian food and introduce you to variety of dishes that you wont always find in Indian restaurants. Restaurants keep a limited popular items menu but theres so much more in Indian cuisine! If you try any of these recipes do leave a review on the recipe post!

North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas

November 18 2021 My New Roots 

North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas Most lovers of North Indian cuisine widely available in North America are familiar with Butter Chicken – the iconic dish that has captured the hearts and bellies of people the world over. In fact butter chicken is likely the most popular and recognizable Indian dish in our neck of the woods, and without a doubt my own personal gateway to the unique flavours of Indian cuisine. This dish was the inspiration for these North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas! When I was 13 or 14, my best friends mother, Annie (who Ive mentioned before in my sushi post – a woman who truly opened my eyes to the world of food beyond hot dogs and hamburgers!), took the three of us to The Host, a famous, Toronto institution that has been running successfully for 24 years. I can still remember the feeling of walking into the space, the air absolutely swollen with mouthwatering scents I had never experienced before. We sat down at the table, covered in a crisp white tablecloth, and a basket of seed-flecked, paper-thin crackers was dropped off along with the menus. Papadam Annie said. I took one bite and the entire thing shattered into my hands, which made us all laugh, and the taste was delicious, even if completely unfamiliar. I had just tried my first cumin seed! This primed my palette for what was to come, and Annie confidently ordered for the table. There were things I recognized, like rice, and flatbread (naan), but most of the dishes were alluringly mysterious, arriving in copper bowls, with colourful sauces and chutneys. Once she explained to put some rice on my plate as a bed for the curries, she handed me a bowl whose scent made my mouth water instantly. Butter chicken she told me. Well, I knew both of those ingredients very well, but not looking like this! Is it spicy? I asked. Not spicy hot, she replied. There are plenty of spices in there, but Id describe it flavourful. I had trusted this woman to guide me through Japanese, Korean, Ethiopian, Greek, Macedonian, and Moroccan restaurant experiences so far, so I took a heaping spoonful of the butter chicken and spread it over the rice.  It was love at first bite. The combinations of flavours, commingling in a sauce that was beguilingly rich and creamy, with huge chunks of perfectly tender chicken throughout was absolutely divine. It was tomato-y, but not overpoweringly so, and deeply aromatic with spices that I had certainly never tasted before. I savoured every bite of that butter chicken, along with chana masala, palak paneer, aloo gobi, and dal makhni. We ate naan, and samosa, and pakora and bhaji. It was a veritable feast that began my love affair with Indian food. Little did I know every corner of the continent, every family, every household brings a diversity and a uniqueness to what we generally label Indian food -- theres so much to explore!     Butter chicken was invented in the 1950s, by a man named Kundan Lal Gurjal, who operated a restaurant called Moti Mahal in Delhi, the capital territory of India. Kundan had settled here in this Northern region of the country and started his business after escaping from political upheaval in another region of India. Moti Mahal was a success, and it served several delicious tandoori dishes, that came from their tandoor oven – a circular clay oven central to Punjabi cuisine.  As the story goes, Kundan didnt want his leftover tandoori chicken to go to waste, but he also didnt want it to dry out, so he mixed leftover marinade juices with tomato and butter, added the chicken to it, and let it all stew – butter chicken was born! Although necessity was the mother of this invention, he likely had no idea that he had created an internationally-loved delicacy that would stand the test of time.  I started eating a vegetarian diet when I was 16, and butter chicken was one of the foods I missed the most. Ive cooked a lot of Indian-inspired food at home over the years, but Id never taken a crack at a plant-based butter chicken until my mom served me a version with chickpeas...brilliant! It was a serious why-didnt-I-think-of-that moment.  One of the things that makes butter chicken so good, is that the chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices before cooking. This step accomplishes two things: one, it tenderizes the meat, and second, it seasons it. Because I was aiming for a weeknight dinner, I decided to skip this step with the chickpeas and just make sure that they were properly cooked and well seasoned before adding to the sauce. I also smashed about half of the legumes. This helped to increase their surface area, break up their tough skins, and allow the flavourful sauce to penetrate to the inner, absorbent centers. I also appreciated having the texture variation in the dish, making it more similar to the OG version. Chickpea Party Tricks We all know that chickpeas are fiber all-stars, providing 50% of your RDI in just one cup, (whoa!) but they have another party trick up their sleeve that I bet you didnt know about. Two-thirds of the fiber in chickpeas is insoluble, meaning that it doesnt break down during digestion, but instead moves through our digestive tract unchanged until it hits the large intestine. The fun starts here, where friendly bacteria (think probiotics!) go to town on said insoluble fiber and actually break it down to create short-chain fatty acids, including acetic acid, propionic acid, and butyric acid. These short-chain fatty acids can then be absorbed by the cells that line the wall of our large intestine and used for energy! How rad is that?! Butyric acid is in fact the preferred source of energy for the cells lining our colon, and with this bonus fuel comes greater potential for optimally active and healthy cells. This translates into a reduced risk of colon problems including colon cancer. So friends, invite chickpeas to your next dinner party - theyll feed you and your colon cells. Can your pot roast do that? Now lets get cooking! For this dish I highly recommend cooking your own chickpeas from dried (I mean, have I ever NOT recommended that?! haha). For one, if you make the entire batch, youre looking at around 4 cans of chickpeas, which is a lot  of waste produced. Second, if you cook the legumes yourself, you can control the amount of salt that you use, as high sodium levels are a concern for some people. Third, they taste way better. Trust me. And fourth, it costs a lot less – I likely dont have to elaborate on that for you If youre not sure how to cook beans from scratch, the full instructions are in this post, and a full video tutorial is up on my membership site, My New Roots Grow. If youre especially interested in this dish, Id love to invite you to the live, online cooking demo on Saturday, December 18th. Part of the Winter Radiance Retreat alongside Mikkala Marilyn Kissi, this recorded, one-day virtual retreat has so many wonderful seasonal goodies planned for you. Check it out and sign up here!  The ingredient list for this recipe may look long, but half of them are spices, and the remaining ones are primarily pantry staples, making this the perfect thing to cook up when you dont have a ton of fresh produce around (Im looking at you, late fall, winter, and early spring!). Cilantro is optional, but such a delicious addition if it’s available to you. And I like to serve the dish with rice or naan, or both. A simple kachumber salad, made with chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and lemon juice is a great accompaniment to butter chickpeas when those ingredients are in season. Pro tip: measure out two or more portions in separate containers of the spice mix when youre making it the first time so the next time all you have to do is grab the blend instead of all your individual spice jars!   And what about the butter?! Well, there isnt any classic dairy butter here (although there is no shame in adding it!), instead I used cashew butter to achieve that crave-able creaminess. Some recipes for butter chicken call for whole cashews, which may in fact be easier for some of you to find than cashew butter. If that is the case, sub the cashew butter with whole, raw cashews that have been soaked for 4-8 hours, and add them to the pot with the tomatoes and coconut milk in step 3. If you’d like to know more about soaking and activating nuts, check out my article here. Get a load of that 2008 photography! Print North Indian-Inspired Butter Chickpeas  Author Sarah Britton Ingredients2 Tbsp. coconut oil preferably expeller-pressed or ghee 1 Tbsp. ground cumin 1 Tbsp. ground coriander 2 tsp. ground turmeric 2 tsp. ground ginger 1 Tbsp. garam masala 1 tsp. smoked paprika 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/­­2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper pinch cayenne to taste 1 large yellow onion diced 2 tsp. fine sea salt 5 cloves garlic minced 28 oz. /­­ 796ml whole or diced tomatoes 1 large can 3 Tbsp. tomato paste 1 cup /­­ 250ml full-fat coconut milk 1/­­4 cup /­­ 60ml cashew butter 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice 6 cups /­­ 900g cooked chickpeas from 2 cups dried /­­ approx. 4 cans cilantro for garnish if desired rice and /­­ or naan for serving if desired InstructionsIn a large stockpot over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger, garam masala, smoked paprika, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne. Stir well to mix with the oil, and stir frequently so it doesnt scorch.   Add the onion and salt, stir well to coat, let cook for 5-10 minutes until the onions have softened slightly. Add the garlic, stir well,  and cook for 2-3 more minutes.  Add the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and coconut milk, stirring well to incorporate. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.  While the sauce is simmering, take about half of the chickpeas and smash them flat with the bottom of a drinking glass. This step is optional, but it changes the shape and texture of the chickpeas (see headnote). Transfer the sauce to a blender, add the cashew butter and lemon juice, then blend on high until completely smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired (if youd like it spicier for example, add more cayenne).  Add all of the chickpeas to the sauce and fold to combine. Bring a very light simmer, and let cook for 5 minutes, up to an hour, making sure to stir every so often so the bottom doesnt scorch.  Serve the butter chickpeas over rice with lots of fresh cilantro, and naan if desired. Say thank you and enjoy! NotesServes 8-10 I hope you love this recipe as much as I do, and find the same satisfying coziness with each bite you enjoy. As we head into the darker, colder months of the year, I know Ill be turning to these butter chickpeas to keep me warm and grounded, while picturing us at our stoves, connected in spirit over steaming pots and nourishing bowls.

Baked Gobi Manchurian – Cauliflower Manchurian

October 8 2021 Vegan Richa 

Baked Gobi Manchurian – Cauliflower ManchurianIn this lightened-up take on the Indian-Chinese restaurant-favorite Gobi Manchurian, cauliflower florets are baked up until crispy, then drenched in a sweet and spicy delicious manchurian sauce! Serve it as an appetizer or main dish. Gluten-free option.  I’m always excited when I can present you with an easy spin on a restaurant favorite and today I have a good one for you! One of those special-occasion restaurant menu items that we all love to order when eating out but never considered making at home. Cauliflower Manchurian! This makes a great addition to the festival menu! What is Cauliflower Manchurian? Gobi Manchurian, or Cauliflower Manchurian, is a super popular take-out and restaurant menu item. This  Indo-Chinese dish is typically fried but I prefer to bake the florets in the oven. Baking gives cauliflower an amazing texture; you won’t miss the greasy, fried coating. The crispy oven-baked florets are then tossed with a delicious sweet, spicy, and tangy Manchurian sauce! This easy vegan dish makes for the most delicious appetizer but it can also be served as a main  when paired with rice. The ingredient list for making cauliflower manchurian is on the longer side but don’t be intimidated by that. Most ingredients are pantry staples and the preparation is so easy so it’s so worth it! Manchurian sauce is a very versatile sauce. You can add some Crisped tofu,  veggie meatballs or vegan chicken to the sauce or add in some noodles.

Diwani Handi Vegetables

September 27 2021 Vegan Richa 

Diwani Handi VegetablesLearn how to make restaurant-style Diwani Handi Vegetables at home with this easy handi veg recipe. Mixed vegetables and cashews simmered in a rich tomato-based sauce. Gluten-free & soy-free, Nutfree option. Diwani Handi is a popular order in many Indian restaurants and I know you will love it, too! Veggies cooked to perfection in a thick, rich and creamy slightly spicy gravy. This traditional Indian dish also known as Diwani handi veg is a traditional Hyderabadi style dish that exists in many different versions. The most popular variations to this recipe feature either an onion tomato or a nut-based gravy, or a combination of both. For this recipe, I use a tomato-based gravy enriched with non-dairy yogurt or cream. This diwani handi recipe is a simple homemade version of the restaurant-style vegetable dish. This simple vegetable curry is traditionally cooked in a clay pot (handi) but any pot will work. I use a regular skillet. Indian recipes often get translated as veggies or protein with some creamy sauce. But they are not all the same. The spices used, the time at which they are added to the recipe, alter the flavor profile significantly. In this recipe the whole cumin seeds get toasted really well to add amazing flavor, the spices cook with the caramelizing onion, then yogurt adds a creamy base and onion and tomato add volume. Veggies are cooked with garlic and fenugreek to infuse a layer of flavor before simmering in the sauce.l! Use up any veggies you have and elevate them with this wildly flavorful curry. Serve your handi veg with rice, naan, roti, kulcha, plain biryani or jeera rice. More Indian veggie dishes to try: - Butter Tofu GF - IP Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce , with Cauliflower. GF - Tofu Amritsari Masala.GF - Madras chili tofu and mushrooms - Balti sauce veggies  - Mushroom Matar Masala GF - Bombay Potato and Peas GF - Tofu in Spinach Curry - Palak Tofu GF Continue reading: Diwani Handi VegetablesThe post Diwani Handi Vegetables appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Spiced Spinach Tofu Stir fry 1 Pot 15 MinutesAn easy Spicy Spinach Tofu Stir fry that can be made in 1 pot within 15 minutes. This recipe is a lifesaver come dinnertime and leftovers taste great the next day. Try this Indian spiced Tofu Spinach curry Gluten-free, soy-free option. 1 Pot and 15 minutes is all you need to make this Spicy Spinach Tofu Stir fry!

Tofu simmered in a rich spinach yogurt and spices that is made spicy by adding cayenne pepper or Indian chili powder and crushed red pepper. So good. The perfect weeknight dinner on a cold night and leftovers make an amazing lunch the next day. I love serving this curry with flatbread, roti or naan but rice would be another great option. For low-carb, serve it with cauliflower rice. Press the tofu Open a package of firm or extra-firm tofu and drain the liquid. Cut the tofu width-wise into slices -- four times should do it. Now, lay some paper towels on a sheet pan and spread your tofu slices in a single layer on top. Put more paper towels over the tofu, then place another sheet pan over them. Place some heavy objects on top of the sheet pan ( cookbooks or cans). Or use your handy tofu press. Leave the tofu to press for at least 15 minutes. You can leave it like that for hours if you have room for it in the fridge.

Malai Tofu Curry – Vegan Malai Paneer

November 3 2021 Vegan Richa 

Malai Tofu Curry – Vegan Malai PaneerMalai Tofu – a simple Indian weeknight curry with tofu paneer in a thick spiced tomato coconut milk sauce. Serve with naan and/­­or rice for a delicious plant-based dinner. Soy-free option included. This quick vegan malai Tofu curry is my spin on a regular restaurant-style creamy Paneer malai.  Another one to add to the options for Diwali! The word malai means cream and while traditionally, heavy cream is used for the cream component of the dish, I use coconut milk in this recipe. The sauce usually has some texture from soaked nuts and I use almond flour for the added texture which reduces all the steps for soaking and then blending the nuts. Another difference from the restaurant favorite would be that this recipe uses pan-fried tofu instead of paneer cheese to make this dairy-free. Crisped extra firm tofu is a great stand in in the delicious sauce! Indian cooking isnt hard once you get to set yourself up with all the required spices and this recipe is especially simple.  Tofu is so forgiving and there are no delicate veggies added so no need to be careful about overcooking anything. This meal is also great for making ahead of time. I like to use extra-firm tofu for this malai tofu recipe and press it for an half an hour before cooking. If you want, you can even press overnight. Simply wrap the tofu in a towel and place a heavy object on top to press. Once your tofu is pressed and cut into cubes, coat it with a mix of cornstarch, garam masala, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt and then pan fry to crisp.
