As a confessed foodie, my heart does somersaults at the mere mention of Southern Indian veg recipes! First up, my top favorite is Masala Dosa, a crispy pancake filled with a spicy potato filling. Next, let's not forget about the delightful Sambar, a tangy lentil soup with veggies that's perfect for any meal! Then there's Avial, a healthy mix of vegetables in a coconut based gravy, making me go coco-nuts with joy! And last but never least, the humble yet heavenly Lemon Rice, a simple dish with a zesty twist. These dishes are not just my favorites, they're the culinary equivalent of a warm hug from the inside!
In our latest blog post, we shared a delicious recipe for cooking collard greens with ham hocks. The process involves simmering the ham hocks in a pot of chicken broth and spices until tender. Then, the washed and trimmed collard greens are added to the pot, cooking until they're beautifully wilted and flavorful. A splash of vinegar and hot sauce adds a tangy kick to this Southern classic. It's a hearty and fulfilling dish that's sure to become a favorite at your dinner table.
In my latest blog post, I explored several healthy Arabic dessert recipes that are not only delicious but also nourishing. I covered traditional treats like Baklava, which can be tweaked with less sugar and more nuts for added health benefits. We also delved into the world of dates, a sweet staple in the Middle Eastern diet, and their various uses in desserts. Plus, we looked at the nutritious Mahalabia, a milk pudding often made with almond or coconut milk. Lastly, we discovered how to make a healthier version of Basbousa by substituting some ingredients.
