Cooking is such a stress buster for me ... itโ€™s back to the vegetarian weekend #thali 
1) Raddish Sambar 
2) Beans Poriyal ( French beans stir fry with generous addition of fresh grated coconut ) 
3) #instantpot - instant Undhiyo ( a famous seasonal vegetable dish made in Gujarat, India) 
4) homemade fresh yogurt 
5) steamed rice , roti, cucumbers , oven fried crispy okra & mango pickle 
Weekend bliss!!!! .
.
Quick recipe for instant pot #undhiyu 
Set to sautรฉ mode, add 2-3 tablespoons of cooking oil . Cut all the seasonal veggies like sweet potatoes , potatoes, flat beans , cluster beans ,tiny eggplant , yam etc ( #hack - I used swad precut prepacked undhiya mix veggies ๐Ÿ˜€) Add a table spoon of crushed ginger , garlic and green chili paste ) sautรฉ for a min and add all the veggies . Add the following spices : salt, turmeric, chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, sugar and grated fresh coconut. Sprinkle some water to avoid burning . Close the lid and cook on high pressure for 5 mins . NPR. Open the lid , garnish with cilantro and serve hot . 
This might not be the most authentic method as originally these Veggies are coated and stuffed with the spices and then cooked , but this is a pretty neat hack for undhiyu lovers like me ๐Ÿ˜Š .

Paneer Bhurji made with fresh home made paneer ( scrambled/ seasoned home made cottage cheese ) 
Love this soft silky texture of fresh paneer. It tastes amazing with roti or buttery sandwhich ( swipe to see) high in protein and kids love it too . 
Sautรฉed the fresh paneer crumbs with onion, tomatoe, salt, turmeric, 1 green chili and a teaspoon butter . No additional spices as the paneer itself is fresh and flavorful. Sprinkle some cilantro if you like . .

Spicy homemade hummus !! Smooth,creamy with a kick of jalapeรฑo and nutty Spanish olive oil drizzled on top . 
No more store bought hummus for me ๐Ÿ˜€ 
This is how I made ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Rinse and drain one can of chickpeas . ( you can certainly use soaked and home cooked chickpeas) 
In a blender add the unsalted chickpeas, 2-3 cloves of Garlic, 1 de-seeded jalapeรฑo, juice from 1 lime /lemon, 1 table spoon tahini, salt to taste and a pinch of paprika. Blend well until smooth. You can add a spoon of water to adjust the consistency. Once smooth transfer it to a serving bowl , drizzle a good quality EVOO and sprinkle some paprika on top .serve with pita, chips, veggies or use for your pita bowl ( I did that ๐Ÿ˜‰) Easy, healthy & Yummy!!!! .

Spicy homemade hummus !! Smooth,creamy with a kick of jalapeรฑo and nutty Spanish olive oil drizzled on top . No more store bought hummus for me ๐Ÿ˜€ This is how I made ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Rinse and drain one can of chickpeas . ( you can certainly use soaked and home cooked chickpeas) In a blender add the unsalted chickpeas, 2-3 cloves of Garlic, 1 de-seeded jalapeรฑo, juice from 1 lime /lemon, 1 table spoon tahini, salt to taste and a pinch of paprika. Blend well until smooth. You can add a spoon of water to adjust the consistency. Once smooth transfer it to a serving bowl , drizzle a good quality EVOO and sprinkle some paprika on top .serve with pita, chips, veggies or use for your pita bowl ( I did that ๐Ÿ˜‰) Easy, healthy & Yummy!!!! . . . . . #hummus  #homemade  #homemadehummus  #chickpeas  #vegan  #vegetarian  #homecooking  #homecook  #goodfood  #buzzfeedfood  #spicyfood  #dip  #hummusdip  #instacook  #instapic  #yummy  #easytomake  #middleeasternfood  #sogood  #zesty_nook  Followme @zesty_nook
When the most simple & basic meal makes you feel like eating a feast ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜‹
The basic and staple meal of Maharashtra ( zunkha bhakar with kanda) - spicy chickpea gravy with whole wheat flat bread and pickled onions . "Zunkha - Bhakar platter" is a spicy chickpea preparation with multi grain or single grain flat bread.  The taste is so comforting and tingling to your taste buds . 
How I made ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝtake 2 table spoons cooking oil in a pan , add mustard seeds , cumin seeds, curry leaves and GGC paste. Sautรฉ well and then add one finely chopped onion . Add salt , turmeric, chili powder and  cook till onions are translucent and release oil . In a separate bowl mix 1/3 cup of chick pea flour and 1&1/2 cup water and beat until smooth ( absolutely no lumps) you can adjust the water consistency depending on how you want to serve the final dish . Add this batter to the onion that's been cooking in the pan , keep stirring till they all combine . Now in a very low flame cook the mixture with the lid closed for 5 mins . Once done and the raw smell of chickpea goes away transfer it to a serving bowl and garnish with cilantro , spring onions and green chili . 
Serve with bhakri, roti, multi grain flat bread or rice . 
Simple eats !! .

Radish cooked in spicy coconut & yogurt sauce ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ (Moolangi mooru khozumbu) 
Tangy spicy dish served with steamed rice ๐Ÿš. So comforting .

Boil and cook radish in 1 cup of water with salt , turmeric and a pinch of pepper powder . While that cooks blend fresh grated coconut and green chili ( as per your spice level ) add this mixture to your semi cooked radish and cook further till the radish is done .

Flash back to the school bake sale treats I made  2 years back ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š Done with Diwali sweets ..Make way for some Halloween candies :) sugary delights the kids cannot get enough of :)) Take mini pretzels , line them in baking sheet . Place Hershey hugs ( Did not try with the regular kisses since i like the white chocolate with the dark stripes) bake for 6-8 mins on a 200 degree preheated oven . Make sure the chocolate is just shiny and moist and not melted fully. 
Remove them from the oven and let it rest for 2-3 mins. 
Then place your favorite candy on top . I used Googly eye candies, candy corn and pumpkin sugar candies as toppings. Refrigerate them for 30 mins - 1 hr so that the toppings are fixed and don't fall off. 
You can use M&M's, Jelly candies or any other topping as per the theme of the party . The options are endless and so is the fun of making it with your kids and for your kids :)) Note: if you are making a very small batch you can top the pretzels with the Hershey chocolate and microwave them for 30 secs and they are are ready for the topping too. 
Enjoy the spooky Halloween week everyone !! .
