In Indian restaurants in the UK, saag paneer is usually made with spinach (palek saag). In fact, the word ‘saag’ is a generic word for greens in Hindi. If you make this dish using spinach, there is no need to precook it - you can add it straight to the sauce. But some types of chard need at...
This is a fairly straightforward recipe to make. I'd not tried roasting okra before and I think it does add a little nuttiness to their taste. Keeping them whole and not trimming off too much stalk prevents sliminess. I found the okra cooked in just over 10 minutes. Any more and they would have...
I found a recipe for a vegan soup which called for 1 1/4 quarts of red wine. This seems like a mistake but I don't know how to verify it. Is that large a quantity even reasonable? Perhaps it meant cups?
Beetroot works surprisingly well in curry. The slightly sweet earthy flavour of beetroot contrasts well with aromatic spices and chilli. Mango powder is a lovely addition here as its sour notes offset the sweetness of the beetroot. This recipe uses pre-cooked beetroot - the sort sold in...
This is an easy dish to make if you have ready-cooked beetroot. You can use the cooked beetroot sold in the supermarket (not pickled). The magical transformation of plain pasta to a dramatic pinky red is great fun. You can use any shape of pasta you like. I used giant Paccheri Rigati because it...
So this was my second attempt at making a vegan/vege burger. I was really happy with the resulting flavours and textures, etc. But upon reflection there's still room for a few more tweaks to make it even better. Below is the recipe as accurately as I can get it, bearing in mind I was sort of...
Recipe from Autentico, page 174, by Rolando Beramendi
My efforts to make more tasty Italian foods that don't have to lay on the less useful of the carbs. This one is also vegetarian, and can work as a side or a main as desired. If as a side, I'd do it with a light main. As a main, I'd do it...
We used to pick shrooms as kids from paddocks near us. I've always loved them on toast. I cook them in butter to coat then the secret found by accident, turn heat off and come back in 10 mins. This lets them shrink and settle. Then I get toast ready and reheat. Put a splash cream in and cook for...

Back in the day, I was a member of what is now Food.Com. I am going back to collect some of my recipes from there - I stopped using that site because the required recipe formatting was a pain in my (whatever). Apparently, I hadn't even been back since 2012.
But, I'd put some good recipes...
I just made this to go with my chicken curry. It's from mridula baljekar book. I've made this a few times now and it's really yummy. I used a bit of cream to sweeten it a bit. Apart from the cream, everything is vegetarian. Is the cream vegetarian????
Calling SatNavSaysStraightOn or morning...
Of course it's not the conditions we'd cook in but Grandpa cooks for a lot of kids at an Indian Orphanage.
His videos are really interesting.

My wife always orders this and has asked me to replicate it, I've done some research and came across paneer and also cottage cheese. She's says it vegetarian ? Does anyone know of a good recipe or steer me in the right direction. The reason I ask here is I prefer someone that's done it. Any...
Mind you, this isn't my observation. I am someone who sometimes accidentally makes a vegetarian dish (and even more accidentally, a vegan dish). But, this chef's observations really seem dead-on. I know that morning glory's son became a vegetarian (or was it a vegan?) and she's gotten quite...
