{NEW #RECIPE ALERT} Tandoori Gobi with homemade Tandoori Masala spice blend ~ http://www.monsoonspice.com/2017/07/tandoori-gobi-recipe-with-homade.html (recipe link in profile @siakrishna )

As old fashioned as the tandoori cooking technique may look, the fact is that tandoori dishes deliver a deliciously smokey piece of meat or vegetable that is chargrilled to perfection and is tender and juicy. The end results are dishes packed with complex flavours you just can’t duplicate at home.
But it is still possible to create a smokey flavour by using a special blend of spice mix and cooking in an oven at maximum heat that your oven can and finally broiling or grilling it for couple of minutes to get that char-grilled aroma. Like how I made this Tandoori Gobi by baking a whole head of cauliflower marinated in homemade Tandoori Masala. This Tandoori Gobi is one of the simple and offhand cooking I have ever done and with little preparation of making your own fresh batch of fragrant, no preservative, homemade Tandoori Masala spice blend in advance, it just takes about 5 minutes of your active time to put everything together. Prepare the cauliflower, marinade it, let it rest in refrigerator and pop it in the oven to do its magic! That’s it! It is really, really that simple and the end result is beautifully spiced, whole head of roasted cauliflower that is crisp on the surface and moist and juicy within with smokey flavour and char-grilled to perfection which will delight and impress your taste buds! #monsoonspice #indianfood #desi #food #indiancuisine #desifood #homecooking #vegetarian #vegetarianrecipes #glutenfree #spicyfood #hautecuisines #dslrofficial #lonelyplanetindia #stilllifegallery #stilllife #feedfeed #foodporn #foodpics #foodtalkindia #foodie #foodphotography #indianfoodbloggers #desi_diaries #instayum #instafood #foodstyling #india_gram

It’s been maddeningly busy for the last couple of weeks. LD turned 7 few weeks ago, and I too turned a year older last week which I spent nursing hay fever and looking after LD who was running a very high temperature and cold. What a week it was and we are glad that it’s finally over and everything is gradually returned to a semblance of normality.
LD is back in school and is enjoying his last week of school year. As another school year comes to an end, I am putting together a small token of our love and appreciation for a very special people in LD's life. It is impossible to thank a teacher and there are no words or gifts that can convey our appreciation for the people who have the power to shape generations, impact the minds and make a world a better place.
This is my humble attempt to say my thanks to LD's teachers and teaching assistants who have nurtured him and encouraged him to explore the world full of fun, learning and wonder! I wanted the presents to be little special and decided to make a personalised gift bag for someone whose words empower children to chase their dreams! The little gift bag contains homemade masalas (every day masala and spicy Garam masala), personalised silver charm bracelets, vintage tea box with some of my favourite tea bags, hand written thank you notes and recipe cards, handmade cards with hand written letter by LD, and some handmade artefacts from India. We can't thank them enough for giving our little one a big dream!

{Updated #Recipe Post} Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat - http://www.monsoonspice.com/2008/09/aloo-tikki-chole-chaat-recipe-how-to.html (link in profile @siakrishna )

I am nursing pretty bad hay fever that usually lasts for weeks in my case. If things were not bad enough, at the beginning of week I found out that around 200 odd recipes from my blog have gone missing thanks to the photo hosting site Photo Bucket which no longer provides a free service. Since I don't have the ransom they are demanding, nor have time or energy to search and re-post the missing photos from hundreds of posts, I will be slowly replacing the missing photos with new photos as and when I cook them. It means, it may take couple of years but I hope you will continue to try the recipes despite lack of accompanying photographs.
For now, let me share this updated recipe post of Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat, a popular Indian street food of spiced potato patties served with spicy chickpeas curry and assorted sweet date-tamarind chutney and hot mint-coriander chutney and topped with finely chopped onions, tomatoes and sev. Head to the blog, and do give this recipe a try :) #monsoonspice #vegan #veganfood #veganrecipes #veganfoodshare #indianfood #indiancuisine #indianfoodbloggers #foodtalkindia #lonelyplanetindia #hautecuisines #stilllife #foodpics #foodporn #foodstyling #foodstagram #foodnetwork #feedfeed #foodphotography #foodphotographer #curry #desi #desifood #desi_diaries #instayum #instafood #instamood #instalike #instagood
