Tofu bhurji (scramble) with the most delicious organic tofu from @healthandmo. This one does not taste like packaged/commercial tofu so if you love paneer and are in Bombay, give this a try instead! 💯 . We followed @vegrecipesofindia's easy Tofu Bhurji recipe and doubled it up as we were using 400g of tofu. However, next time I'll up the spices as this version was a bit bland for my palate. 😬 I ended up adding some @naaginsauce 🌶️ and that made it perfect! . And in case you're curious, I bought these lovely plates from @curatorsofclay - a small, local ceramic studio I found online! 🍽️ . . .
A beautiful mess...this is what you get when you put way too many veggies in your chickpea batter! 😂😂😂 I wanted to make this besan chilla (chickpea omelette) but also wanted to use up a bunch of veggies so...😆. It was delicious anyway. Had a few of these with some sautéed red cabbage. Yum! 😋 . Currently waiting for our delayed flight to take off ✈️... @veganbombayboy and I are on our way to Delhi for the @veganindiaconference by @veganfirst_daily. Really excited to hear all the speakers, meet many of you, have some delish food and come back with some vegan business brainwave! Message me if you're there and let's meet! 😊💗 . . . . . . #pudla #chilla #mumbaifood #gujarati #vegan #veganindian #indianvegan #vegansofmumbai #mumbai_igers #plantbased #govegan #vegetarian #veganindia #veganfoodplug #bestofvegan #droolclub #veganlifestyle #veganism #foodblogger #thekitchn #huffposttaste #thrivemags #veganfoodshare #eeeeeats #feedfeed #mumbaistagram #food52 #foodtalkindia #glutenfree #veganomelette
Came across a sprouted moong and methi chilla recipe on @tarladalal's website so I modified it slightly and it turned out just right! 😍 Besan (chickpea flour) did the trick of holding it together. It tastes really good and is an easy and quick recipe if you have sprouts at home. Had 4-5 of these with some coriander chutney, my pesto (yesterday's post) and @bombuchadrink's yummy kimchi! 😋 . 🌿 RECIPE: SPROUT & SPINACH CHILLA 🌿 • 1 cup sprouted moong (whole green gram) • 1/2 cup chopped spinach • 2 T besan (chickpea flour) • 1 green chilli • 1 small piece ginger • 1/2 t cumin seeds • A pinch of asafoetida (skip this to make it #glutenfree) • Salt to taste . 1. Blend all the ingredients except besan with some water to form a paste. 2. Add the besan and mix well. 3. Pour on pan and cook on both sides until slightly brown. . My mom went to Tarla Dalal's cooking classes when she was in college so her recipes hold a special place in my heart - even though I end up modifying them, I tend to pick hers over other blogs that I come across! 💞 . . .
Zoodles with a super simple vegan pesto! My mom's friend gave her a ton of fresh basil from her kitchen garden 🤩 so I had to take it and make some pesto. I modified @minimalistbaker's "Easy Vegan Pesto (5 minutes!)" recipe - mainly omitted oil and substituted nutritional yeast with vegan parmesan from @softspotfoods and OMG, it was delicious! 😍🤤😋 This one's perfect for a raw-ish/no-cooking meal. . 🌿 RECIPE: VEGAN PESTO 🌿 • 2 cups packed fresh basil (large stems removed) • 2 T pine nuts (or 3 T walnuts) • 1 T walnuts (only because I ran out of pine nuts) • 3 cloves garlic • 2 T lemon juice • 4 T vegan parmesan (or nutritional yeast) • 1/4 t Himalayan pink salt • Some water to process. . 1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and mix until a paste forms. This was a chunky pesto as I didn't add olive oil but was so so good. 2. Spiralise zucchini and serve with pesto. (Also great to eat as a dip with some veggie sticks or on toast!) . . .
Do you know that feeling when you really love a place and it's amazing on every visit but then comes that one time it disappoints you and you feel betrayed? #dramatic 😄This was the first time I was disappointed with what we ordered at Fabcafe Kemps Corner a few days ago. (But I still love it for the stuff we usually get so of course, I'm going back!) 😋😁 . This was the first time I was there for breakfast so I was really keen on trying the Tofu Akuri (scramble) but unfortunately, they didn't have tofu that day. We got: 1. Idli with Tomato Coconut Chutney, Sambar & Gunpowder - The presentation was great but the idlis were dry and tough to eat. The top of the idlis was dry and crusty as if they had been microwaved and in turn, lost all moisture! And despite mentioning vegan and no dairy/honey, unfortunately it still came with a side of ghee. ☹️ 2. Polenta Upma - Cornmeal upma with carrots, peas, tomato coconut chutney and sambar. The top of this too was dried out and crusty. This was supposed to be vegan by default but this too came with a side of ghee! 🤦🏻♀️ 3. Spinach, Green Onion & Water Chestnut Momos - Made with jackfruit flour and root starches, these gluten-free dumplings were delicious! I especially love the two dips it comes with. The only dish that was worth it in this meal. ✅⭐ 4. Peanut Jaggery Coffee Shake - Coffee, palm jaggery syrup, peanut butter, vegan ice cream and almond milk - I was really excited to try this one out but it was a liquidy, strong coffee more than a shake. ☕ . Service was good but these dishes were disappointing so I wouldn't recommend them (except the momos 😍). I was engrossed in conversation with my sister @suhagi15 so we didn't care much but next time I'll stick to my standard order. 😃 . 📍@fabcafe.in, Tardeo, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . .
A delish lunch at Bayroute, Cuffe Parade. We got their hummus (minus ghee), falafel and veggie tagine. Everything was delicious, especially the tagine - lots of flavour! 😍😋 Their pita wasn't that great on this day - a bit chewy - but everything else made up for that. Visiting this place when it's not busy has been our secret for a great experience. 😁 . 📍@bayroutedining, Cuffe Parade, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . .
This photo is from my parents' honeymoon (in 1973). I love how my mom looks so elegant and calm in her sari - her gaze makes me wonder what she must be thinking about at that time - it's almost like she's looking forward into her future! I've always loved this photo - it fills me with love...gives me this warm, cosy feeling like everything was right in that moment. They've come a long way over the years and hats off to my mom @jasminescookery for going through life's ups and downs with a lot of positivity (and a little bit of complaining 😉) but making her kids feel like everything was ALWAYS right. I guess that's what moms do...make everything in our world feel right. ❤️ . I don't usually care for contests but this @stylemati one is special as 1. I get to share this lovely photo of my parents and 2. I love MATI clothing - local and cruelty-free with simple patterns - I love the dress I own! . #MatiMotherhood . . . @adiventurousvegan #vintage #photo #mother #mothersday #motherdaughter #india #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhitephoto #slowfashion #sustainable #indian #madeinindia #bombay #memories #sari #saree #oldschool #love #sustainablefashion #organicclothing
When Google Assistant takes you back to a time full of amazing memories... Christmas in Peru 🇵🇪 in 2014. 📅 This was the first country of my three-month solo trip across South America. ✈️🌎 Four years later, it still feels surreal... At times I can't believe I did this but it was surely the best decision I've ever made! 😇 I still remember the mixed feelings and slight panic I felt the night that I was leaving home but a few days into the trip, I felt so calm and settled...wherever I was felt like home! 🏡 It's not very common for Indian women (especially Gujarati women) to travel solo so I'm even more grateful for this life-changing experience! 🌟 . This🎄tree made from plastic bottles was in Aguas Calientes, the sleepy town from where you can visit the fascinating citadel of Machu Picchu. . . . #grateful #throwback #peru #machupicchu #indiantraveller #visitperu #exploreperu #southamerica #visitsouthamerica #travel #travelblogger #travelgram #doyoutravel #gujju #ladiesgoneglobal #iamatraveler #gujarati #beautifuldestinations #theculturetrip #instatravel #travelphotography #igtravel #traveladdict #forbestravelguide #saynotoplastic #christmas #merrychristmas #christmastree #christmastime #christmaseve
Loooooved watching the Broadway musical, Hairspray, on the @symphonyoftheseas1. Best seats thanks to our Royal Genie, Sunil. I liked this a lot more than Cats on #oasisoftheseas last summer. My niece had such a good time, she wanted to watch it again! So impressed with the entertainment options on this ship. 🤩🚢 . . . #throwback #cruiselife #cruisetime #cruise #cruiseship #royalcaribbean #royalcaribbeancruise #symphonyoftheseas #royalcaribbeanblog #hairspray #musical #ship #cruising #familyholiday #traveldiaries #travelgram #instatravel #traveller #adiventuroustravels #bestseats #royalgenie #potd #picoftheday #indiantraveller #travelling #vacation #happy #fun
