    This weekend has been the most indulgent one with cooking dishes which require some of the most sinful ingredients in the pantry. We hosted three dinner parties, one planned and the others unplanned. Now while the planned dinner had an elaborate menu, I hardly had any time to plan for the other. So I quickly went through my archives and pulled out this recipe which resulted in the best Biryani I have ever made. I did one twist in the usual procedure by cooking it in the electric cooker for the last step. The rice was perfectly cooked and the biryani was the most amazing one with delicate flavor and awesome taste. This Biryani is a Moradabad Special and is called Yakhni Biryani where yakhni stands for Broth. It is very mildly spiced and can be enjoyed by kids as well. A must try recipe if you love your Biryani!

    If you don’t have unsalted butter, you can try shortening, vegetable or olive oil.

    For a lot of people in Kerala, egg curry and porotta is an irresistible combination. The Kerala porotta, though it sounds similar to the North Indian paratha or parantha is different in that it is flaky and made up of several layers. It is a flatbread made with refined flour, eggs, and fat-as such, it is not very high on the "foods-that-are-good-for-you" list...but as with all such foods, tempt you with their taste and crispiness. I think there are very few of us who make them, from scratch, at home as they are easily available nowadays either in restaurants or in frozen packages (usually called Malabar paratha). Although egg curry is a common accompaniment, it goes well with chicken and mutton curries too (even vegetable korma!). This egg curry preparation is just the way I like it with rotis or porottas...

    To make garlic cloves easier to peel, microwave them for about 10-15 seconds.

    I have always wanted to cook with zucchini but doubted its taste. After seeing these baby zucchinis i couldn't stop bringing some home. They were very cute, petite, round and firm. My first experience wasn't that bad as i thought earlier., i made a very simple curry with onions and green chillies. The curry tasted so good and now I'm very much open to experiment with these zuccinis.. The skin was so soft and thin you need not even peel it, and i found its taste very close to ridge gourd. The best part with the zuccini, it cooked in no time.

    Chole bhature is a combination of chole (spicy chick peas curry) and fried bread called bhatura. It is mainly eaten in especially in Punjab and north India. Now it becomes very popular in all over India as a street food. Chole bhature is traditional North Indian Punjabi classic cuisine. Bhatura is a soft leavened fried Indian bread made with flour, baking powder, oil and yeast. When fried, it puffs into a fluff and lightly golden Indian breadwhich served with white chickpea curry popularly called as Chole. It is a heavy breakfast which is generally accompanied with raita or lassi. Chole bhature are served with onion, aachar and green dip. This time I serve chole bhature with dahi bhalle on very special occasion of Diwali. A complete meal for Punjabi thali. For this a great thanks to my lovely Mom.

    Avoid the use of butter. If it is essential to use, use a butter containing low saturated fat or with plant stanols (which avoid absorption of cholesterol by our body) or similar substitutes.

    Cayenne pepper can add a little fire to recipes. Use less, taste and then add more if you’d like.

    If you misfired with the seasoning (and we all do that sometime!) and your curry is saltier than you like, don't throw it out. All you need to do is peel and cut a large potato in half and add it to your curry. It will absorb the extra salt!
