Paneer curries are a crowd pleaser! I love to cook paneer curries, as this dishes are effortless and easy to prepare if you have to make for many, as there is not much peeling or chopping required and most of the Paneer curries are prepared with similar ingredients such as tomatoes, butter, cream, herbs, and spices. You must have seen on the restaurant menu card or heard the name as Butter Paneer, Paneer makhni or Paneer Butter Masala, the chance is that these are prepared in the same sauce.

In most of the Gujarati households, the utmost importance is given to Lapsi, and considered as an auspicious dish that is mostly prepared with broken wheat or coarse wheat flour. No matter how many various types of desserts or sweets you can make and serve but Lapsi has to be made if there is a good news in the family such as purchasing a new home or there are wedding bells and on a Gujarati New Year for Shakan (as a good luck measure for coming year)

Although on the occasion of Diwali, I prepare copious sweet and savoury dishes for the celebrations but never fail to prepare Lapsi, on a new years day for annakut ( offering the food to god) maybe a small amount, that's the tradition I love to follow.

Being a foodie and a food blogger, experimenting with food comes naturally to me, lol many times I get wild ideas in the middle of the night and start conjuring up recipes in my mind. That is how the idea came about for Caramel Fada Lapsi. Oh yes, definitely caramel is my secret pleasure, as soon as I open up the tin I waste no time in dipping my finger.

I did add caramel, so how did that change things? Definitely, caramel perked up the taste and there was no extra time or steps I had to take make this. This was so easy, to make, same as the original fada lapsi, nothing fancy or intimidating, so hey guys, if you have already made and enjoyed an authentic fada lapsi before, here, is another rendition of fada lapsi - Caramel Fada Lapsi

Pink flower petals are added here for the photography purpose.
In some countries, caramel is known as dulce de la leche.

Roasted Carrot, Chickpea Soup with Coriander and Lime Vinaigrette

This Roasted Carrot, Chickpea Soup with Coriander and Lime Vinaigrette, is a healthy, flavourful and satisfying dish which can be served at lunch or light dinner and ridiculously easy to prepare.


Season of winter is in full swing, so is the season of soups, at least in my kitchen :) Already We have gulped down so many soup bowls, and there are many soup recipes waiting to be executed in my kitchen.  Freezing and Cold temperatures with Hot and Cozy soup go hand in hand, warming, and hearty soups to get you through the cold spell.

Remember I told you here about how I went a bit crazy and bought a half trolly full of vegetables, just because they were 29p per bag, so I went on soup cooking spree and prepared huge batches of soups which overtook my fridge and freezer.

More Carrot Recipes:- Roasted Carrot and Coriander Hummus | Carrot, Tomato and Cardamom Chutney | Lasniya Methi Gajar ( Sauteed carrots with garlic and fenugreek seeds)


One of the soups I prepared was this Roasted Carrot, Chickpea soup with Coriander and Lime Vinaigrette which is the result of few leftover bags of carrots I had in my fridge. We just threw whatever we found in the fridge and pantry as we were going on holiday and wanted to use all our perishable ingredients. Instead of adding more vegetables I added Chickpeas so this soup would be packed with protein too.

This soup turned out so delicious, that after coming back from our holiday we already finished the frozen ones, and I had a go at making second time as per demands of the family and also I wanted to post this recipe on my blog.

More Chickpea Recipe:- Sun dried tomato, chickpea Cakes with Cashew and Oats | Gujarati Black Chickpea Curry | Thai Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Mushroom Curry


So this soup of mine is Frugal, amazingly flavourful, spicy and delicious, and a bonus point is that it's vegan and so healthy.

In this soup, fresh and juicy carrots and chickpeas give such a thick, creamy and luscious texture, neither runny or lumpy, just right so it slips down your throat. A strong and warm flavour of harissa paste is so inviting in this cold weather. Zippy and fresh tasting coriander and lime vinaigrette brightens up the soup and makes this it all more enjoyable.



Notes:-
For a low carb diet, serve soup without any bread.

Stoke Place - The King & Lamb - Restaurant Review

With the New Year, we all want to make dietary changes and embrace clean eating. But what do you do when your friends mention having a catch up over dinner? Instead of just ordering a salad, why not try out the new Vegan menu at The King & Lamb at Stoke Place in Buckinghamshire!

Stoke Place-The King and Lamb Restaurant is in Buckingham shire.

Stoke Place Country House is located in Buckinghamshire.  We were thrilled to be invited to sample the brand new The King and Lamb restaurant's vegan menu for veganuary.

The idea behind the vegan menu was to change perceptions of veganism. Instead of "mock duck" for example, why not embrace the wonderful plant-based food and fresh ingredients that the world has to offer?

As we arrived at Stoke Place, there was an immediate calm. We were not far from the city and main roads and yet we were given a complete sense of serenity. The exterior of Stoke Place was beautiful with lovely gardens on the outside. We really were looking forward to seeing the inside!




If we thought the outside was nice, we were in for a real treat when we walked up to the restaurant. It was lavishly decorated with beautiful fabric and antique ornaments. My daughter especially fell in love with the globes. This was definitely not the interior of a standard restaurant.

We were greeted by Mark who is the restaurant manager. He showed us to our table and then explained a bit about the country house and restaurant. It was interesting to find out the history of the house and how it came about. Stoke Place was built by Patrick Lamb in 1690. He was a master cook to several Kings and Queens but it was here in Stoke Place that he cooked for Queen Anne.



We were then talked through the full menu and explained the ingredients gone into each dish. We chose to have all three courses. Each dish sounded divine, it was hard to pick! We learnt that the food is sourced within 10 miles of the hotel.

We were also offered a vegan wine to go with the courses. I didn't know that wine isn't always vegan so that was good to learn and also did not contain sulphites. The wine was priced at £36 a bottle.


Whilst we waited for the first course, we had hot out of the oven bread rolls with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. For starters, I ordered the carrot soup and my daughter ordered the cabbage. The soup was simply perfect. There is no other description that I could give. Every flavour was coming through without being overpowering. The soup was wonderfully silky with the hit of ginger being just right. It was just what I needed for a cold wintery day! My daughter loved her starter too and said that she had never eaten cabbage before that tasted so good.


For mains, I had the gnocchi and my daughter had the butternut squash. With one bite I knew that the chef really knew his ingredients and flavours. Each ingredient complimented the other perfectly, I don't think I've ever eaten gnocchi that tasted this good before. It was so fresh. I was told by my daughter that the butternut squash was splendid too.

It's also worth mentioning that the portion sizes were perfect. Not too small, and not too filling that we were getting too full to enjoy the next course.

For dessert, we were recommended the vegan brownie and the poached pear. What a heavenly end to an already exquisite meal. Usually, I always skip any offers of cakes because I don't eat egg so it was great to be able to indulge in the brownie knowing that it is vegan. My daughter loved her pudding, particularly the pear sorbet.  With all of our dishes, the food was so beautifully and delicately presented. I and my daughter both were almost completely silent as we ate!



After our meal, we had a tour of Stoke Place where we got a chance to take in the rich history of the building and explore the different ways the hotel could be used to entertain. We finished off in the butterfly bar where we had a tea to round up our lunch.


I'm so glad that I've had the chance to discover Stoke Place. It's such a wonderful place to visit with family and friends in all the different seasons.

Disclaimer:- Thank you, Stoke Place-The King and Lamb, for welcoming us to enjoy your hospitality. The full meal for two was on the house and all views expressed are entirely my own. I was not told or paid to write a positive review.

This wonderfully aromatic Roasted Cauliflower, Parsnip, and Walnut Soup is so delicious, creamy and a little sweet. Beware, folks will come for second helpings for this one! And as it's vegan, enjoy Veganuary!

Roasted Cauliflower, Parsnip and Walnut Soup is healthy, hearty and nutty. Perfect for cold and gloomy weather.

Hey, guys how are you all? Hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your loved ones and started the new year with a bang! We had a fantastic time together over the Christmas period. We indulged and enjoyed so much yummy and tasty food, movies, games and shopping, and in the beginning, of a new year, did get away for a 5 day trip to Austria and Hungary. A great way to start a new year, right!? :)

Roasted Cauliflower, Parsnip and Walnut Soup is healthy, hearty and nutty. Perfect for cold and gloomy weather.

I just mentioned above that over the Christmas we had rich, tasty and calorie loaded food, especially we went crazy on potatoes and gobbled so many Roasted Potatoes, Aloo and Onion Paratha, Aloo Tikki, Aloo Matar, and Dry Aloo Bhaji with Methi Thepla just because our local supermarket was selling 2.5kg Potato bag for only for 29p! Crazy right? Not only potatoes but carrots, parsnips, Brussels sprouts and so fresh cauliflower too.

Roasted Cauliflower, Parsnip and Walnut Soup is healthy, hearty and nutty. Perfect for cold and gloomy weather.

I got so greedy and bought almost a half a trolly full all these veggies. Whatever we could use for the recipes I used and all the leftover vegetables I used in making soups and froze them as I knew after coming back from the holiday we will need some food where I don't have to cook much ( oh yes, I do not easily switch off from the holiday mood) also we wanted to start a new year with the healthy note and of course wanted to beat cold and gloomy winter days with these type of piping hot soups.
