    Hi Dasssna, ur receipes with presentations are always good to refer. I am a big fan of urs. Currently there are problems going on in my home. I belong to Marathi family & married to Gujarati man. It’s been one year of our marriage, still I am not able to cook perfectly as my mon-in-law always keep changing her receipe style. I first need to be good in basic cooking i.e. Vegetable cooking. I just dont know at this stage, how I should move ahead my receipe is less tasty than her. (My hubby said).
    Could you please help me in this? Any comments from you are always wecome.

      now thats an issue meenakshi. try the popular recipes from the blog. they come from an experienced cook and i am sure you will be good in them. in a small comment, i am unable to tell you the intricacies of cooking vegetables. each veggie has different cooking times and also there are different ways to cook, like steaming, sauting, grilling or baking. i would suggest you to get your hands on some books which have basic indian cooking like cooking dal, rice, rotis and vegetables. you can also refer for some simple and easy recipes on the blog. there are many. use the search button on the top to search the recipes. also you can buy some gujarati books later. but first you will have to learn the basics and the know how of spices, lentils, flours etc. cooking is not difficult. just practice and patience is required. you can see how your mother-in-law cooks and ask for her recipes or suggestions/tips, if you have good terms with her. don’t worry. the more you practice, the better you will become. any query you can email me or comment on the blog. all the best.

    Hi made this today for breakfast…..yummy I also added ajwain seeds n til seeds ……I think so dat the tomatoes should be puréed to get nice thin omelettes ……thnx a lot for all the recipies …..now I don’t call up people home to find what to add n how ….I just browse ur site ……..well done dasanna

    • says

      thanks a lot siri. tomatoes can be pureed and they will give thin omelette. however if you finely chop or mince the tomatoes and onions both, you can still thin omelettes. adding ajwain and til seeds is a really good idea. next time i will try your idea.

    I just made this and your vegan banana bread and both turned out fabulous. My son has egg and dairy allergies and it was so nice to find your site and all of the wonderful suggestions you have for healthy yet still tasty recipes that meet his diet needs.

    Thank you for taking the time to share these recipes!

    Next up I plan on being more adventurous and trying to make either aloo paratha or masala dosa. Was wondering if you have a good recipe for Aloo baji? My hubby loves Indian food and that is his favourite.

    Thanks again

    • says

      thanks sarah. any food can be made delicious without eggs and dairy products. its a little tricky but once you get the knack of it, you can make excellent dishes. in fact just today, i made apple upside down cake and it was fab. no one could believe that there were no eggs or milk in this cake. will share the recipe soon.

      do try the aloo paratha and masala dosa. these are famous indian snacks and you should try making them at home :-)

      i always get confused with aloo baji… is it a dry potato dish or potato fritters. in south india bajji means fritters and in west india, bhaji means both fritters as well as a potato dish.
      giving you the recipe links of both, including a north indian punjabi potato curry. the curries can be served with rotis, pooris and even bread.

    I’m so happy you posted this recipe. I used to make it, sans onion, years ago but have misplaced the recipe. For a couple of months I’ve been thinking of it and tried to recreate it. My memory failed miserably because I remembered it was with chenna. There is another recipe, which resembles scrambled eggs (made of fresh cheese) I must be mixing it with. I will go to the kitchen to try it out now :-)

      thanks lakshmi. i have heard about the one made with chenna but never made it. i usually make this one with besan as its the easiest one and gets done quickly too.
