Avocado Paratha (Mexican Avacado dip Flat Bread) 【牛油果煎饼】

Guacamole with corn chips is a snack I frequently prepared for guests. As many of my friends are either vegetarian, or vegetarian wannabe. And I often left with some guacamole that I have no heart to throw away. This yummy avocado dip is packed with good fat and nutrients that our body loves.

So I turned it into paratha and to my delight, it is so soft and tasty! Not to mention being super healthy!

Moong Dal Dosa 素食好主意 【绿豆煎饼】

Dosa is normally made from fermented grinded urad dal and rice, it take quite sometimes to make the batter. When time is restraint, and a quick snack or breakfast is required, this moong dal dosa which require no fermentation is a good alternative.

Just soak and grind moong dal into batter with spices, and off you go making dosa!

Hyderabadi Chicken Dum Biryani 【印度鸡肉Biryani香饭】

Biryani is a very famous Indian/Pakistani spiced rice made with different kind of spices and ingredients. A very important dish for festive season and part of celebration. 

Biryani derives from the term Berya in farsi, it means a dish prepare by baking it. There are many ways to make Biryani, and the ingredients are mindbogglingly diverse just in India itself. The north, the south, the Kashmiri all make this delicious rice differently.

I have received many requests in the past from readers asking me to make a post/recipe on Biryani.

This biryani was made during the New Year eve, for lunch celebration with a group of close and dear friends. The recipe I use here is  Hyderabadi Dum Biryani, a famous spicy and delicious Biryani recipe from the State of Hyderabad in India.


Biryani名称源于波斯语 Berya,是烤制的意思,所以正宗的Biryani是用密封的把各种肉类香料和米饭烤制而成的。Biryani的做法和材料千变万化,在印度南北各呈现不同的风味。

很多朋友都私信让我写印度手抓饭Biryani的食谱。趁元旦佳节和朋友聚餐时我就做了一次印度比较经典的Hyderabadi Dum Biryani。
