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.

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...

Southwest Breakfast Bowl

Southwest Breakfast Bowl

Restaurant style breakfast bowls at home, so you can brunch everyday! I personally love brunch. If I'm going to meet my friends over the weekend, we will almost always gather for brunch and enjoy the fancy French toast and a breakfast bowl. With the year we've had, we've been going out much less, but that's [...]

Aloo ki Bhujia (Potato Curry)

Aloo ki Bhujia (Potato Curry)

I just came back from a glorious (but short) trip to Lahore, where I didn't move a muscle unless it was to eat. I visited close family and got all my favorite foods made at home, and one of those said favorite foods is this Aloo ki Bhujia. It is such a simple dish, but if made right it can hold so much flavor. In fact, this potato curry is so delicious and flavorful that it can be served alongside Halwa Puri. All in all, it's a great vegan and gluten free meal that the whole family will enjoy, and it comes together in less than 30 minutes!
