Sookhi Bhel

Bhel
Looking for a crunchy instant snack?  Here is one - a quick lemony Mumbai style Bhel. No need of any Mint or Tamarind Chutneys.  Just a few ingredients easily available in your kitchen and store bought Nylon Shev does the trick for a filling snack.

Broccoli Masala

Broccoli Masala
Finally, warm spring weather has blessed us. I am just glad that I don't have to wear those heavy winter jackets anymore... at least for a few months. And I get to enjoy my lovely morning walks.  Fresh air does wonders for me.
Now, lets get to cooking.. a rich, creamy Broccoli Masala with soft phulkas.

Cranberry Sheera / Sooji Halwa

Sheera
Sheera or Sooji ka Halwa or Kesari is a rich, decadent dessert traditionally made using Ghee (Clarified Butter) and with lots of dry fruits - golden raisins, cashews, almonds.  Some like to cook this sweet with milk - Milk Kesari.  
Let me tell you how I make this delicacy - with store bought unsalted butter, crunchy cashews and slightly tart cranberries.
