With the onset of winter, vegetable markets get exciting with offerings of colourful seasonal vegetables and fruits. Fresh and lively spinach adds to the variety which I prepare often. It is a healthy piece of green and can be turned into some interesting preparations without much effort. Here I prepare a spinach dish with possibly all the winter vegetables like carrot, broad beans with sprinkled green peas and truly can be tagged as ideal mix veg. The USP of the dish is lentil dumplings alias ‘bori’ which is a must ingredient. Indeed winter is splendid with spinach.

Once in a while you stumble across a hidden treasure, somehow forgotten and buried somewhere. Finding this recipe of Salmon fish, prepared long back, gave me the pleasure as such. Salmon was one of my favourites during my expat days and sharing the recipe is like going down memory lane. Here in Delhi and elsewhere in India, Salmon is not scarcely found these days and I assume that over the days Salmon swam across the oceans to reach East. So, on one hand if sharing this recipe gives me immense pleasure while reminiscing good old days, on the other, it also raises the excitement of introducing a glorious continental preparation.

Paratha stuffed with seasonal vegetables apart from the usual Aloo or Muli parathas are pretty common in Northern India. Likewise, spinach puree in partaha dough infuses a certain kind of herb flavour in the paratha and makes it pretty tasty too. Known as Palak paratha, it is actually quite popular and find many lovers all around. Here I share the interesting recipe of Palak Paratha which one can readily follow.

Over one of my earlier posts, perhaps I have expressed my soft corner for Mung dal among all the lentils which also happens to be a personal favourite. We Bengalis prepare Mung Dal not going by any particular recipe but indulge in different methods. We often use different vegetables, sometime add coconut pieces, even add fish head to make it tastier. Even just the Mung dal with steamed rice and thinly sliced potato fry (Aloo Bhaja in Bengali) is my favourite since childhood.
In my earlier post, I shared with you the recipe of Mung dal with Cauliflower & Potato. Today’s recipe is all about Mung dal with another winter vegetable, Spinach. This recipe is also quite new for me but I liked it so very much that couldn’t resist to share with you. Enjoy 🙂
