Veg Manchurian Gravy, veggie meatballs dunked in a Cantonese sauce, A very popular Indo-Chinese recipe
FacebookTwitterEmailYummlyTumblrStumbleUponWhatsAppGoogle+

Veg Manchurian is a popular Indo-Chinese recipe that has a healthy mix of vegetables, deep fried (healthier alternatives in the my Take section) and dunked into a Cantonese sauce. These vegetarian “meatballs” make a perfect accompaniment to white/brown rice making you regret all the times you had take-out when you could have created a great dish like this in your very own kitchen!

FacebookTwitterEmailYummlyTumblrStumbleUponWhatsAppGoogle+

Guess what we had for dinner thrice in the last two weeks? That’s right! Burnt Garlic noodles, burnt garlic noodles and more burnt garlic noodles! I want to say I am really done eating this and I can have no more! But every time my-obsessed with this-noodle-dish-husband suggests (read, begs) it for dinner, I cave. Then, I think, well, it’s not bad and then serve it onto my plate and my tummy, brain, heart (I swear, most of the times, these three are never in agreement!) just want more! Continue reading

Hot Stuffed Buns! Hot Stuffed Buns! One a penny, two a penny, hot stuffed Buns! Errr… Maybe I ought to factor inflation into the poem and say, one a dollar? High time, don’t you think? Well, All I can say is, these masala stuffed buns aka palya buns are so warm, soft and the balance of flavors you get with every bite, it almost feels like a hug, a hug from an angel. And, who can put a price on that, eh? Then again, I am biased because, as you know, I made these stuffed buns from scratch and all. Why don’t you try them and tell me about it? 🙂 Continue reading

Mushroom Noodles
FacebookTwitterEmailYummlyTumblrStumbleUponWhatsAppGoogle+

This Mushroom Noodles recipe is not your usual noodle recipe. It has no soy-sauce, uses caramelized mushrooms and is mixed in with this awesome chimichurri sauce. Oh! I almost forgot. It tastes like a ton better than any mushroom noodles that you have ever tasted! With the number of recipes I use, mushroom in, you would think I would love mushrooms of any kind. But I have not explored the world of mushrooms at all. Apart from the easily available, white button mushrooms, I have tried three other varieties and all I can say is Uh oh! I was unable… Continue reading

Have this bowl of Garlic lemon soup with sriracha bombs and you will be bidding winter adieu before you finish the bowl because your senses will be set on fire! The last week brought with it to Texas bright sunshine, temperature in the late 60’s and early 70’s, a breeze and the beginning of blooming flowers. Yep! It was spring and smiles until… the winter storm that started yesterday! L  I know that most of you have been experiencing a very long winter this year and I have designed a “weapon”! A weapon to fight winter! I am naming my… Continue reading

Orange Cauliflower
FacebookTwitterEmailYummlyTumblrStumbleUponWhatsAppGoogle+

This recipe for Orange Cauliflower is a vegetarian’s solution to the apparently amazing Orange chicken that is available at Panda Express. A sweet and sour (tending towards sweet) sauce flavored with freshly squeezed orange juice… new realms of joy! Blogging has been a roller-coaster ride for me. I know I know. Life itself is a roller-coster ride and the one who meets ups and downs with the same gusto emerges the winner. Blah blah blah! The meeting with same gusto thing is much easier said than done especially for someone like me who explodes with emotions at the drop of… Continue reading

SZECHUAN SAUCE | SHEZWAN SAUCE

Szechuan Sauce
FacebookTwitterEmailYummlyTumblrStumbleUponWhatsAppGoogle+

Spicy Szechuan sauce is you could say, a cousin of sriracha and a distant cousin of tabasco. The gene pool for all spicy sauces is quite similar actually; fiery peppers/chilies with some acidifying and sweetening agents. The variation of these adjuvants (an agent that modifies the effect of other agents) is what makes a Szechuan or a sriracha or a tabasco. (Do forgive the excessive scientific… swearing if you will. That is the nerd in me talking 😛 ) A few years ago(a decade ago to be precise. Darn! Am I getting old… or wise? 🙂 ), my dad met… Continue reading

Baked honey soy zucchini is what all of us need right now! A welcome break from the cheesy, starchy, meaty snacks consumed in the name of Superbowl. Tasty, healthy sides like the baked honey soy zucchini?? I say, Come to Mama! Zucchini has always screamed out health to me and I love zucchini. I eat zucchini so often. That got me wondering, why I do not have more zucchini recipes on Yummily Yours? For crying out loud, I have more zucchini in the two sentences above than the no. of recipes on the blog! 😛 I know why. I never… Continue reading

What did I have for dinner last night? Vegetarian Hakka Noodles! Yum… Yum.. Yum…    A plateful of fresh veggies with noodles, oooooo… Everyone’s favorite, toddlers, teenagers and even grandparents! Tom & Jerry and noodles. I do not know anybody who would say no to these. Ever wondered what is in them that hooks a kid barely 2 yrs old and has hardly seen life; and is still able to extend its clasp on adults who have “been there done that” regarding most things in life! One of those unresolved mysteries of life I guess. What are the vegetables that… Continue reading

SIMPLE SRIRACHA NOODLES | REALLY SIMPLE

Simple Sriracha Noodles
FacebookTwitterEmailYummlyTumblrStumbleUponWhatsAppGoogle+

These Simple Sriracha Noodles, I guarantee, will bowl you over. I hope the word ‘really’ is good enough an adjective to describe the ease of making these amazingly tasty Sriracha Noodles. There are 2 kinds of people on Earth. Those who finish their work at least a couple of days earlier and those who cannot do anything about their work until the V.E.R.Y last day. I’m pretty sure the two sets can very well defend their styles of working. But when these two come together, especially in a marriage, you have got yourself a recipe for “All hell broke loose!!”….
