Rajma Chawal (Red Kidney Beans with Rice)

Hello Fellas.....hope you'll are doing great. Hope you're having a great summer time in your respective places and making the most of it this season. Here, in this part of the world we're having an awesome time and enjoying my summer dresses to the fullest because after this we have to load ourselves with the boring jackets and sweaters. 

Although summer brings lot of fun but it also leads to health and skin problems therefore we need to put extra time to take care of our body. My mantra for this season is to eat simple and drink lot of fluids. So, I like to eat very easy-peasy dishes in this season.

Few days back I made Rajma-Chawal for lunch. If you follow me for some time you'll know that I had spend few years of my life in Punjab so there's lot of influence of Punjabi cuisine in my cooking. I'm a great lover of Punjabi food and almost tried every type of food in my kitchen.

So today I'm sharing the recipe of Rajma-Chawal.

Pad Thai/ Phad Thai

We just love Thai food, if you ask me to choose between Chinese and Thai food; I'll always go for the later one. So, today I thought of sharing a recipe which is one of my favorites whenever I think of a Thai Cuisine. Yes, it's none other than Pad Thai.......a famous Thailand street food. 

The Asian store in my neighborhood carries so many sauces which always compels me to pick and try each of them; but thanks to the Chinese/Thai script which restricts me to do so and I always stick to the basic ones. 

When it comes to Thai food I love their Chicken Satay, Dumplings, Spring rolls, Tom Yum Soup, Basil Fried Rice, Pad Kee Mow and the list goes on. Although (for novice like us) Chinese and Thai cuisine have a very minute difference but I love the flavors of Thai cuisine.

Pad Thai or Phad Thai it's a stir-fried rice noodle dish commonly served as a street food and at most of the restaurants in Thailand. Preparing any kind of noodles is a time taking process because it needs a lot of pre-cooking time but the actual cooking time is very less. Just fry the protein & veggies add sauces and noodles. Stir fry them for few minutes and you're served. 

So without further ado let's start with the recipe of Pad Thai.

Herb Roasted Chicken

Hello peeps, hope you'll are doing good. Few days back I had posted a pic of Herb Roasted Chicken with Dijon Green Beans on my Insta stories and I received number of DM's to post the its recipe. 

Believe me that dish was an impromptu attempt to cook something for dinner; whatever was handy I had mixed up everything and came up with a dish which was a great hit on the dining table and on my social media handles too. 

So, I thought to give that dish a place on my blog so that I won't forget the recipe and you guys can also try it in your kitchen. This recipe is not only healthy but also requires minimal prep and cooking time which is very helpful on the days when we don't like to step into the kitchen.

Here, the recipe of Herb Roasted Chicken with Dijon Green Beans.

Egg Tadka Daal (Dimer Torka)

Hello my foodie friends......hope you'll are doing good. "Torka- Ruti" (Egg Tadka Daal with Chapatis) is one of my go to food whenever I'm in India. In Kolkata it's a very common scene to come across various roadside carts selling Dimer Torka (Egg Tadka Daal) and Ruti (Chapatis) in evening. 

Even I used to buy that whenever I was not in the mood of cooking. Even the price is so reasonable that it won't hurt your pockets. But, the guilt of having the roadside food laded with all the dust and unhygienic things won't allow me to enjoy the deliciousness of this very popular food.

So, the foodie inside me woke up again and yelled at me to try this recipe at home. Egg Tadka Daal is nothing but Whole Green Moong Daal topped with scrambled egg. There is another version where the egg is beaten and added into the daal while it's cooking. I like the former one so, I'll be sharing that recipe here.

Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken......The name itself is enough to make someone drool over the hot, sizzling platter of spicy and juicy Chicken pieces. As a kid when I use to attend the marriage ceremonies the first thing I would search in buffets or the menu card are those succulent Tandoori Chicken.

When I grew up and developed interest in cooking I use to think that making those restaurant style Tandoori Chicken at home is not possible. Thanks, to the technology, my blogger friends and You-tubers from where I tried to learn the art of making Tandoori Chicken at home. 

I tried many recipes; sometimes it use to work and sometimes I failed drastically but finally after adding and subtracting many things I came up with a recipe which never disappoints me and every time I come up with restaurant style taste at home.

So, without further ado let's start with the recipe:
