Mushrooms & Broccoli

Cut broccoli into florets and soak them in salt water for about ten minutes.

Meanwhile cook mushrooms in butter on high heat. Avoid boiling them by constantly stirring. Once all the water has evaporated add chopped garlic, some extra virgin olive oil and the florets.

Cook covered in low heat for about ten to fifteen minutes but keep checking so it does not burn.


Don’t overcook the broccoli. Check by eating a floret and it must have a little resistance.​  Season with salt and serve your family a super healthy dish.

Pumpkin with Coconut Milk

IMG_20170411_093134280~2-02

Chop up a pumpkin into small pieces and put them in a thick pan with some oil. Cook covered on low heat for about 15 mins. This is enough to soften them up.

Now add in about 100 ml of coconut milk and ground up spices. I used pepper, cumin, onion seeds and fenugreek seeds. But anything with some pepper will do.

Cook covered on low heat for another 10 minutes. Garnish with coriander and dry it up on high heat.

Enjoy a yummy feel good vegetable meal.

Fish Cutlets with Sweet Potato

Boil sweet potatoes in salted water till they are tender. This will take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes depending on their size. Let them air dry and cool before mashing them.

Add lots of finely chopped coriander and green chilies. Season with turmeric, garam masala, ginger garlic paste and salt. Use you hands to mash them really well.

Add chopped seer fish without skin and bones and mix it in using a strong fork.

Shallow fry over medium heat.

Hope you enjoy my ode to the greatest game ever.

Spinach with Chicken

Spinach with Chicken

Boneless chicken thighs pounded with a mallet. Rub some smashed garlic, salt and olive oil. Heat a pan and lay the chicken with the smooth side down. Once more than 50% of the chicken has changed to white, flip it over and place tomatoes. Lower the heat and cook covered for 2 mins. Open and put torn up spinach and cook covered on low heat for about 8 mins. Open and cook on high heat to dry it all up. Drizzle a little lemon juice to help with deglazing the pan.

 

Enjoy your super simple and healthy meal.

Simplified Hawaiian Chicken

It all started with an evening snack. Pineapple. I cut it such that the eyes are left over and give the remaining to the kids. As I looked at these pieces an idea started forming.

My wife kind of read my thoughts and came up with this super simple but seriously awesome recipe. Pulverized these pieces in the blender and then strained the juice. They yielded about half a cup. To this juice we added a teaspoon of soy sauce and dissolved a tablespoon of brown sugar. Keep it aside.

Sprinkled freshly ground pepper, chopped garlic and salt on chicken drumsticks. Let it stay for about 30 mins.

Melted butter and added some olive oil into it. Once it was hot, added and browned the chicken legs over high heat. Then let it simmer while covered for about 15 mins. The chicken is cooked by now.wp-1491232628221.jpg

Added a lot of chopped coriander and the pineapple juice.
