A beautiful combination of flavours in a jar! Extremely simple and foolproof recipe calls for the most basic ingredients but it never seizes to impress!!

As much as I love to prepare Indian style fiery, tangy and sweet chutneys to go with our Indian meal, I also love to whip up English sweet and mildly spiced chutneys too. Ones that perk up your cheese and biscuits or jazz up your sandwiches if you use it as a filling. I adore these fruity chutneys which wonderfully works alongside Indian meals too.

These chutneys are so versatile, sometimes I add in plain yogurt and serve with crisps, tortilla chips or toasted pitta bread as a starter. Have you tried roasting root vegetables with it? Just mix a tablespoon of chutney and little olive oil, drizzle on parsnips, sweet potato or carrots. My husband has his own way to use it, he would spread a teaspoon full of his favourite chutney on whole grain toast, and sprinkle some cheddar cheese before grilling again, so delicious!

So I have a plenty of reasons and excuse to prepare another batch of new chutney recipe as we have finished my summer batch of Apricot, Sweet Pepper and Thyme Chutney. This time I decide to make Carrot, Tomato and cardamom Chutney, for this recipe I did not have to go to markets or shop, All the ingredients are from my pantry and direct from my vegetable patch as it was overflowing with carrots and tomatoes.

One afternoon, everything went into a pan and in less than an hour, I had this finger-licking and delightful chutney ready, once it was cooled, stored in sterile jars and ready for through winter months. Now that Christmas cheer is in the air its a reminder to pack a few gifts and pressies for friends and family because Christmas is all about joy and festive cheer. It's also about caring, giving and receiving. This homemade chutney makes a great edible gift for a foodie friend or a family member as homemade gifts are so special, there is always a personal touch.

Product Review - Goodmans Multi Frying Pan

Product review by Jagruti's Cooking Odyssey of Goodmans Multi frying Pan

Cooking and baking are seen as therapeutic by many. Spending hours in the kitchen creating all sort of wonderful dishes and treats is a great pass time.  I think though we can all collectively agree that spending hours in the kitchen washing up after isn't!

As much as I am a fan of the one-pot meal, there are many dishes that have different components to them. One is a fry up, lunches with a selection of sides... I could go on! The difficulty with these is getting out all of the food at the same time so that it remains hot. You end up wasting loads of pans for small portions of food, and the sink piles up higher and higher! I need a pan that can handle more than one dish at a time.

Goodmans Multi Frying Pan Review

My prayers have been answered! I received a Goodmans Multi frying pan recently to review. The pan has 6 cooking sections so that up to 6 different foods can be cooked, boiled or fried at the same time. This pan is not overly proportioned but suitable for a meal for two to three. It has a non-stick coating and also comes with a wooden spatula.It has detachable cord, for easy cleaning.

I tried out the pan one lunchtime. I wanted to quickly whip up a lunch for the family. We decided to have vegan burgers with various vegetable sides. The pan came with some handy instructions with how to get the best use of it, and it couldn't have been easier to use! It works electrically rather than on the hob and warmed up nice and quickly. All it needed was a little spray oil and it was ready to go.
The food did not stick to the pan at all and each segment was evenly cooked. (watch the video)

Goodmans Multi Frying Pan

This multi frying pan is suitable for students as it doesn't take up as much as space and can make meals quickly and easily. It also helps with portion control! My daughter's hands are already itching to pack it away to her uni!!! I suppose its very time saving and she hates doing the washing up afterwards :D as this pan does it all in one!




And most importantly, it was so easy to clean! Just a quick wipe with a soapy sponge was enough. The pan is easily transportable, you may take with you on holiday if you are going for a self-catering option as it works electrically.

Autumn is in full swing and winter is just about to set in on my part of the world. Cold temperatures and piping hot soups go hand in hand. As soon as chilly weather appears, in my family we become soupaholics , almost every lunchtime becomes soup time and we enjoy relishing the soups. Last week I made a family favourite Goji Berries, Mushroom and Sweet Potato Soup and Vegan Carrot, Ginger and Coconut Soup with Saffron Vinaigrette . Over the weekend I had a massive craving for Butternut Squash Achari Thepla, so for brunch, I prepared and enjoyed them with Masala Chai.

Our daughter is a big fan of soups, a flask filled with thick and creamy hot soup and multigrain baps make her more happy rather than a cold sandwich in the middle of winter. While she studies away from home, she doesn't get much time to prepare her own meals very often, I make a big batch of few different types of soups and freeze for her and for myself too, and whenever we feel like having the soups, just defrost, reheat and gulp it down. Oh boy, won't you feel so good to be able to pull out a container of soup from the freezer when you're feeling under the weather or pressed for a time?

After making above soup last week, I had leftover Sweet Potatoes and Butternut squash. I had very busy weekend and was dead tired to make something creative with these two ingredients, so just decided to make a soup, so simple, nothing much fancy and the incredibly easy soup was ready in less than an hour, still turned out extra special.

Together sweet potato and butternut squash does wonders and their flavours of autumn shine through amazingly in this soup. A bowl of satisfying meal not only delicious but really nutritious and is good for your body too. All the goodness from these two vegetables helps you to stay healthy and fit. Addition of the Tofu croutons make this soup well balanced and lends a good dose of protein. In this velvety soup, crispy and crunchy tofu croutons add that beautiful crunch. I garnished it with Garden Cress that is so beneficial for our health too.

In this recipe along with butternut squash, I also roasted sweet potato and carrots too, everything blended with the vegetable stock with a little hint of chilli paste. The soup topped with seared tofu croutons and nice tangy and lemony sumac, which is the highlight of this soup.  This soup can be made ahead and frozen for the colder days to come. A bowl of sunshine in the midst of the winter!

I had no intention whatsoever to try Japanese food a few years back, there were many reasons behind this excuse. First of all, I had never heard about it, and once Japanese food started to make an appearance in the market, the first thought crossed my mind that Japanese food looks bland, not sure how I can handle it?  The person who has eaten spicy and colourful food for their whole life, it's hard to make that move! So how and when did I encounter Japanese food and how did I become a huge fan of it?

A couple of years back, the family wanted to treat me on Mother's day, so they booked a table for us and surprised me. When they took me to one of the popular Japanese restaurant chains, I had my doubts.  People say eating Sushi for the first time can be intimidating. But that was not the case at all! The kick from the wasabi, mirin and pickled ginger was just to die for. All these things made the food more enjoyable and flavourful. It was a totally different experience, different flavours and textures to experiment with. Thanks to my daughter who introduced me to it, and now we have a whole new addition to our household menu!

Since I came out of from the restaurant,  the great tastes lingered in my mouth, the flavours were dancing in my head and family knew that so well, so once again just after a week we went again and enjoyed sushi.  We got almost addicted and let me tell you Sushi does not come here cheap! So daughter had a go at making it at home and without any further delay, we popped into an oriental supermarket and grabbed all the ingredients that we needed.

We had a great experience in making fresh Sushi at home, we were just surprised how easy it was to roll. The main task was to get together all the ingredients. She prepared Maki and California Rolls for us. The great thing about Sushi is that you can eat it with your hands too, well I have mastered using chopsticks though :)

Sushi can be served as an appetizer or light meal, or the main course. Generally, these are served with Soy sauce, wasabi paste and pickled ginger. It goes well with Miso soup, seaweed and cucumber salad.

Afterwards, I also gained confidence in rolling the Sushi too :)



Notes:-

Keep a bowl of cold water when preparing the sushi, it will prevent the rice sticking to your fingers and also the knife when cutting the rolls.

Aloo Matar - No Onion Garlic

If your taste buds are craving for an Indian curry, try this Aloo Matar without Onion Garlic, it will be a definite addition to your recipe file.

Aloo Matar-No Onion Garlic curry is a healthy, quick and simple to make. This delicious curry prepared with humble vegetables such as potato, green peas and tomato. Easy healthy side dish which is perfect with roti or puri.


This classic, delightful and effortless Indian dish is too good to be missed. In this finger-licking curry, potatoes and green peas are cooked in tomato gravy with basic spices. Although in this recipe no onion and garlic have been used, the curry is still full of flavour.  Aloo Matar is pretty easy to rustle up whether you use onion garlic or not. A crowd-pleaser curry which can be prepared when you are restricted to not use onion and garlic on religious occasions.

I've been blogging past 7 years but never crossed any thought of writing a post on Aloo Matar in my mind until daughter suggested me a few weeks ago. I am so surprised that so many friends of her follow this blog, and so serious about cooking Indian food. Whenever they have a chance to taste our homecooked food, they really enjoy it and although they want to try themselves they find those recipes quite intimidating as generally, my recipes are loaded with exotic spices or many ingredients. So daughter asked me if I can post a few basic but tasty recipes which can be done so easily and within their budget. Oh, an of course not heavily loaded with garlic and onion as they don't want their wardrobe smelling of onion and garlic rather than some lovely perfume! I hear you guys as I know how tiny your rooms are. 

So I agreed with my daughter and promised her this post for her and her friends as all the ingredients in this recipe are easily available, not expensive and non-perishable.

This Aloo Matar recipe is my mums, in her entire life, she never cooked Aloo Matar with onion and garlic. As soon as the winter chill used to creep in she used to bring Green Peas from the market while they were available. In those days green peas used to be quite expensive compared to other vegetables, so for her, it was always a proud feeling for her to bring green peas in the house. If I think back now, I wonder why I never thought about posting Aloo Matar recipe. In my part of the world, green peas are available abundantly all year around, not expensive and my freezer is always stocked up with them. 

I have used same ingredients which my mum used to add, only just changed the cooking method. She used to prepare this curry in a traditional kadai, where I use my beloved pressure cooker to speed up the process, not to worry, I am giving you both methods here :)

And these perfectly layered squares were prepared in Delicake No Bake cakeware!

Recently I was given the opportunity to review an Australian product, Delicake No Bake cakeware and I was happy to oblige. The good news is that it is available in the UK as well. The product is strictly for no bake desserts and treats.

After unwrapping the packaging, the first thing I thought was how expensive and durable the plastic for the cakeware looked. It is made of high impact polished good grade acrylic and is BPA free.  I was sent a Traditional Round Master alongside a Spatula and Knife.

The whole Delicake product came in only three parts, the base, a sleeve and a lid. so very easy to assemble and ready to use. The no bake cakeware was very user-friendly. I didn't need to waste time greasing pans or use greaseproof paper. Because the cakeware is transparent, I could see the layers as I was building them up, making sure they were perfectly even and well set, and to my delight, the cakeware is easily portable. No more breaking desserts when handling and transferring. The proof was definitely in the pudding when I took off the sleeve as everything was so well set, and the sleeve slid off without any struggle.

Once you have spent hours on a dessert and put it in the fridge you do not want other food odours to set into the desserts. Instead of using up rolls of clingfilm, I've finally found my new best friend. I tested out the bakeware in the fridge by not using any other clingfilm or containers and I could not smell/taste anything weird afterwards! Win! The knife and spatula were of a really good quality too. This no bake cakeware would be perfect for Christmas, Mother's Day or a Birthday gift! Think of all the yummy goodies you'll get to eat in return ;) Buy all these products online here in UK.

My only request is that in the future Delicake releases smaller versions of their round master so that sweet treats can also be made in smaller portions!

These No Bake Anjeer, Biscuit and Caramel Squares are just to die for!! Incredibly easy to prepare and utterly delicious. If you have a sweet tooth then you must try this chocolate, caramel and nuts delight!!! Huge hit with everyone. These squares are made in Delicake No Bake Cakeware.

Thank you Delicake for sending me this amazing product, I will also be doing a giveaway of Delicake No Bake Cakeware, worth £34, so watch this space!

Notes -
You can add coconut, dates, apricots or prunes too in the biscuit base.
You can use condensed milk instead of caramel.
The recipe can be halved or doubled.
