Chili Tofu

July 23rd. 2021

Indo-Chinese is also known as Indian Chinese cuisine that is widely popular in India because of it's spicy, sweet and sour flavors! It’s basically Indian and Chinese flavors with Chinese cooking style. ⁠

This Chili Tofu recipe by @honeywhatscooking is a spinoff of Chili Paneer but trust us when we say it has ALL the flavor minus the fat and calories! Nisha puts a healthy spin on this recipe by swapping out the paneer for tofu and sautéing it instead of frying it. Airy Frying the tofu is also a great option if you have an air fryer.

Kale Patra Roll Ups

June 25th, 2021

If you enjoy traditional Gujarati patras from colocasia leaves but have trouble finding it in grocery stores in the US, you're going to love this recipe from @thechillichick - Kale Patra Roll Ups! She recommends using Tuscan/dinosaur kale as it is less curly and easier to roll. Because baby kale leaves are more tender, these patras cook fast. These can be pan fried or steamed and then pan fried with a quick tempering. See below for the recipe: ⁠

Recipe: ⁠

12-15 baby kale leaves⁠

1 tsp mustard seeds⁠

1tsp sesame seeds⁠

1/2 tsp asafetida⁠

1 tbsp oil ⁠

Chickpea paste: ⁠

3 tbsp besan (chickpea flour) ⁠

1tbsp rice flour⁠

1/2 tsp turmeric⁠

1 tbsp green chilli paste⁠

1 tbsp ginger paste ⁠

1 tsp salt⁠

1 tsp ajmo⁠

1 tsp oil⁠

pinch of baking soda⁠

2 tbsp tamarind chutney⁠

enough water to make a thick paste⁠

Mix all the ingredients together for the paste and set aside. Wash and pat dry the kale leaves, and remove the fibrous stalk using a knife. Spread a thin layer of the paste on the inside of the leaf then roll. Heat up a pan with oil and add asafetida, mustard seeds and sesame seeds. Once you hear some crackling, turn the heat down to the lowest setting and add the leaves one by one. Cook uncovered to retain green color. Continur to turn so the entire roll is covered in the tempering. Cook until cooked through and enjoy! ⁠
