Mexican Salad

Few days back I had this type of salad in a Mexican Restaurant though it was not similar because it had mayo as a dressing.I really liked the texture and taste of the salad. It was so flavorful and colorful too.. :-D. But you can’t have such heavy mayo dressing salad every-time, right.!!

So here I have created my version of Mexican salad. This salad is so versatile, you can have it with anything, you can use it as a dip with Naachos, in a Taco filing, burritos literally anything.

It is a simple salad to whip up just throw in whatever veggies you like here. you can use any kind of beans like black beans . Here I have used kidney beans, mixed bell peppers, corn, onion, tomatoes.

Guys please do try this recipe it is really tasteful and I am sure you all will love this.!!

Here are the list of ingredients and instructions:

Paneer Masala

Paneer(Indian Cottage cheese) in thicker, spicier onion tomato gravy. It is very popular vegetarian dish from Indian cuisine. The gravy of this recipe is different from the gravies which you generally eat with Paneer. I like to to eat Paneer Masala  when I bored of eating the same old Paneer gravies like Paneer Butter Masala, Kadhai paneer etc. . This recipe is packed with flavors. I generally cook this Paneer Masala whenever I am in a hurry because it is so easy to prepare and with few ingredients on hand. You can serve it with any Indian bread or even steamed rice, it is definitely going to satisfy your tastebuds like never before.

You guys must try this recipe. If you bored of eating Paneer in same gravies.!!

So let’s me share the list of ingredients and steps for this recipe.

Matar Paneer

Hi, I will be sharing with you all the recipe of dhaba style Matar (Peas) Paneer(Indian Cottage Cheese). For some people who doesn’t know what dhaba is. “Dhaba is the name given to roadside restaurants in India. They are on highways, generally serve local cuisine, and also serve as truck stops. They are most commonly found next to petrol stations, and most are open 24 hours a day.”

I just love Paneer because it blends really well with any other ingredients. I can eat paneer in any form like paneer curries, paneer parantha or paneer sandwich etc.

Peas and Paneer curry is one of the popular Indian recipe. And it’s my husband’s favorite.😊

This is not a restaurant style paneer, it is typically dhaba style so the preparation is bit different but trust me it tastes really awesome. The preparation of dhaba style has no cream, cashews etc. On the other hand in restaurants they use lot of cream, cashews to make the gravy richer and heavier.

I like this style of matar paneer because it is light, easy to prepare and taste amazing.

Let’s start with the recipe of Matar Paneer

Amritsari Kulchas with Pindi Chole

Amritsari Kulcha, hearing its name my mouth starts watering and I am sure yours too. Its one of the famous dishes of Amritsar, Punjab ( India). Though, I have never been to Amritsar but had it in Jaipur Rajasthan (India)  for the first time.

Kulchas are Indian flat breads which are similar to naans. Amritsari Kulchas are stuffed variants of regular kulchas and are filled with potatoes, onions, and certain spices.  These kulchas are usually eaten with Chole or Dal.

I usually pair these Kulchas with some Pindi Chole, (the recipe of Pindi Chole will be sharing here in this post). They tastes delicious together and a side of some radish and onion salad is a must have.

So, without wasting anymore time, lets start with the ingredients and recipe of the Kulchas and Pindi Chole.
