Stuffed Bhavnagari Chillies: Paneer

The Bhavnagari chillies are longer, wider and less spicy than the regular chillies that Indians are used to. They are ideal for stuffing. In this recipe, I have stuffed these chillies with cottage cheese and served it with drops of mint and sweet sauces. I found this to be an interesting take on the deep-fried stuffed chillies that are usually prepared,

Potato Chops: Boiled Egg & Chutney

In the early 2000s when I used to stay in the Mumbai suburb of Malad; I used to visit a store which would sell snacks made by East Indian women. One of these was the Egg Potato Chop where a tablespoon of mint-coconut chutney was spooned over half a hard boiled egg and was covered with mashed potato, rolled in egg wash; crumbed and fried. The green chutney is a pleasant and refreshing surprise as one takes a nice bite into this potato chop.

Flavoured Water

During summer, I like to make a jug of flavoured water which is Summer Flavoured Waterrefreshing and cooling. While I have seen lemon or mint being put in water jugs in restaurants, I always see this flavoured water being used at my friends’ (the Jaiswals) place during summers. Try it!

I slice cucumbers (about 1/2 cm thick. Alternatively, they could be sliced lengthwise in quarters), lemon/lime slices and mint sprigs. Add these to a jug, add water and leave aside for atleast 4 hours (recommended to leave this overnight). Then, enjoy!
