Dahi Puri

Dahi Puri

If you don't know what dahi puri is, it's similar to pan puri, or gol gappay. They are literally tiny puri's (a semolina and flour dough that is rolled out and fried to crispy and chewy perfection). Since they are rolled out so small they puff up and hollow out. You fill them with a mixture of potatoes and chickpeas and douse them in a spiced yogurt and some delicious chutneys. It's way less messy than Pain Puri and I love making Dahi Puri more because you can add lots of flavor. They make the perfect appetizer at any table, and my favorite time to make them is during Ramadan. They're easy and fun to eat, and even easier to make.

Soy Ginger Salmon

Soy Ginger Salmon

Salmon is my absolute favorite, and it comes at a hefty price at restaurants. Making it at home, especially this way, is a great way to get those restaurant flavors on a budget.

It is a huge portion, and comes in at under 310 calories. How is that possible, you ask? Just by tweaking the ingredients a bit...

Cranberry Pistachio Scones

Cranberry Pistachio Scones

I don't mean to be dramatic, but once you make these cranberry pistachio scones at home, your life will never be the same! They turn out so delicious, so light yet fulfilling. I find store bought scones to be a little too dense for my liking, and a little too sweet. These are mildly sweetened so the cranberries can shine, while being balanced by the salty roasted pistachios. Add a little orange zest to take these over the top, and you'll be skipping the fancy cafes and staying in for a delicious scone with your morning coffee...
