A Healthy Wholewheat Veggie Pot Pie

Pot pie is a baked pie recipe, which is filled with loads of veggies and covered with whole-wheat or flaky pastry. Easy to make and healthy, these are a perfect and wholesome dish for the cold winter nights.

The top crust can be made flaky with refined flour or a bit dense and chewy with wholewheat. Since I like whole grain in my baking recipes, I baked this pot pie with whole-wheat pastry which was similar to a baked wheat biscuit texture.

Broccoli Manchurian – A Perfect Dinner Recipe

Broccoli Manchurian came to light when my kids refused to try this exotic vegetable with loads of health benefits. Just thought of adding Broccoli with the normal veggie Manchurian I often make, and voila 🙂 Broccoli has become a hot favorite veggie for my kids.

It is a good idea to introduce new veggies to kids at an early age with interesting yet healthy recipes, which they would enjoy eating and ask for more.

Veggies Made Easy – Ridge Gourd Peels Sabzi

As is said in many health journals and by the experts in food and nutrition, maximum health benefit is just under the peels of any vegetable or fruit. So don’t discard these humble yet goldmine of nutrients when you plan to cook Ridge guard. The recipe here is what my mom used to make often when we were kids. Disliked and avoided at most of the times during childhood, I now love to make the same, every time that I get my hands on a tender Ridge guard.

Rice Made Easy – Let There Be Carrots

h recipe tasting better than the other. Coriander rice, cabbage rice, lemon rice, pepper rice, tamarind rice, mint rice to name a few.

Rice used to be just an accompaniment to dal (pulses) & vegetables, as plain rice or pulav a few years back. But not any more! I am amazed by the versatility and varieties of dishes this humble grain creates, after coming to the land of rice.

You name an ingredient and there is a recipe for the same, and each recipe tasting better than the other. Coriander rice, cabbage rice, lemon rice, pepper rice, tamarind rice, mint rice to name a few.
Phew….
Carrot rice dons many avatars, with pepper, onion, clove and green chillies into the recipe. And with every version tasting unique and different.

Pack the Pumpkin – Easy Pumpkin Curry

The following recipe has a vegetable I sympathize with, for all the abuses it faces in every corner of the world. It is carved into scary faces and ‘Halloween’ to ward away bad spirits. ‘kaddu’ as called in Hindi, is used to refer to all that is dumb and lifeless. Yes you guessed it right- it is Pumpkin!
