Spiced Plum Chutney :

Sweet, sour, sticky and glossy, this luscious plum sauce is a gem of a recipe from South Asian repertoire of condiments.

It pairs well with many foods but is a real joy to eat with breads, cheeses, roasts and rice mains like pulao and biryani dishes .

My favourite way to eat it - with roasted potatoes or peas pulao YUM!

Sichuan Style Eggplant in Garlic Sauce :
Bold favours of garlic and ginger mingle with soy sauce to enhance the deliciousness of these creamy, wok-seared eggplant pieces in glossy, sweet and sour sauce . Quick and light stir fry, ready in minutes .

This Old World vegetable with Asian origins is commonly used in Chinese cuisine, both cooked and raw.

Dal Paratha, Lentils Stuffed Flatbread :
Simple and delicious ! Made with the basic flour and water dough, stuffed with spicy yellow gram lentils and shallow fried till crispy ...this stuffed flatbread is a complete meal , that can be eaten on it's own or simply with a dollop of butter, some chutney, pickle or yogurt on the side.

I've done this recipe as a part of my good friend and Caribbean food maestro +Larry Fournillier​​ 's upcoming project __10th Parallel North__ which is a comparison and contrast of the cuisines and cultures of people living 10 degrees north of the Earth's Equatorial plane. To know more about the project here is a link to the travel map of different cities and points of interest Larry shall be visiting , https://goo.gl/pYcCKj

Easy Chicken Stroganoff
It's my go-to-comfort food, a quick-fix-family-meal and the best bet to impress guests in the shortest time possible !

Melt-in-the-mouth pieces of meat and mushrooms, creamy luscious sauce and simmering heat from freshly ground black peppers. This dream combination of flavours and textures goes equally well with rice, pastas, noodles, breads and potato sides .

Dinner served from stove to table within 30 minutes .

You are right. The Russian version is made with beef but no one is a fan of red meat at my place so I make it with chicken. Gets done in minutes 😊
Thank you for taking time to comment 😊 Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Apple Toffee Fritters :
Tender, juicy, tart apples, inside a crispy golden toffee shell, sprinkled with sesame seeds or crushed peanuts .

This classic Chinese dessert is delightful in it's simplicity and a wonderful change from usual banana fritters . Tastes delicious with or without ice cream.

My weekend fun is sorted!

+rick van elswijk , haha! 😄 The presentation idea was from my junior chef, my younger daughter. In fact she asked me to mention that in the post because she was pretty proud of it 😊😊
Yes, the tart, crisp and juicy...granny Smith kind.
Thank you for your kind appreciation, Rick 😊

Not only this is a wonderfully informative post but +John Rivard​​ 's entire blog Think, Eat, Be Healthy is full of great information, tips and healthy food ideas.
Follow him on Google plus and check his blog here,
http://thinkeatbehealthy.com/2016/08/15/choose-your-vegetables-carefully/
 
Choose your vegetables with care The most important thing you do each day is choose your vegetables at every meal. This decision is critical because vegetables should make up the largest part of our diet. If they don’t, we are just not going to be as…
Choose your vegetables carefully. You can only eat so much in a day. Get the most good out of everything you eat. Some foods are much healthier than others.
