Savory Tarts

Savory Tarts

I love anything that starts with puff pastry, and these savory tarts are no different. They are so simple but there's beauty in their simplicity. I love using up leftover vegetables in these. Cheese, vegetables and dough make for the best flavor combinations, but you can add any protein of your choice as well. These are great to serve at parties because they are bite sized, but you can also make a large one and cut it to serve. They're also a great light snack to break your fast with during Ramadan.

Dahi Phulki

Dahi Phulki

While you'll hear me raving about papri chaat day in day out, it's slightly less famous cousin, Dahi Phulki, or dahi phulkiyan, are what I grew up eating. It's a cross between Dahi Bhallay and Papri Chaat and to be honest it's my favorite. In our house it was served on many occasions. With chai as a snack, but also with biryani or Yakhni Pulao. It's like raita but with some oomph from the besan (chickpea flour) ki phulkiyaan. The process is simple but the flavors are amazing...

Low Carb Samosas

Low Carb Samosas

Ramadan is right around the corner, and I can't live without my samosas. This easy recipe requires no kneading or hard work. Just some simple ingredients and my sneaky shortcut. Not only are these samosas low carb, but they're also low calorie, and that's a real win for me.

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.
