Kala Chana Pulao - flavorful, delicious and wholesome

This robust pulao combines a tasteful combination of black chickpeas and brown rice. Being low in fat, high in dietary fiber, black chickpea is an excellent source of protein. It can be a good choice to add them to your diet, especially if you are a vegan or a vegetarian. This #pulao is beautifully flavored and deliciously fragrant. The stock is the key ingredient and, which gives the rice it’s black color. This is my mother's recipe.The only change I made is the addition of candied carrot strips.

You don't need a curry, chutney or a pickle on the side. It goes great simply with raita or plain yogurt.

An Easy Frittata

This protein packed #frittata is easy to make and you can customize it with whatever add ins your heart desires. My version has quinoa and paneer in it along with veggies. This is one of our favorites. Although, my husband and I didn’t grow up on it, I make it often enough as if we did. I like to season the frittata with turmeric, cumin and ginger. They really add deep flavor and it’s also quite nice that the frittata takes on a lovely yellow hue from the turmeric.

You can eat this frittata for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And, if you bake it in a muffin pan its perfect for packing up a healthy snack or on the go breakfast.

Good morning and Happy BC family day

There is nothing I cherish more than being with my family, even if it is just talking, watching movies, going for a walk or sharing a meal.

Vanilla Bean Crème Brulee

This recipe celebrates the irresistible textural contrast between silky custard and caramel shell.
May be not a quick one but this fancy dessert takes very little effort, very few ingredients and, best of all, demands to be made ahead. Before serving dust it with sugar and then fire up the torch and have some fun.

Perfect for Valentine’s Day or any special, romantic occasion.

Ingredients
4 egg yolks
1 1/4 cup (310 ml) heavy cream
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and cut into two
6 tsp turbinado sugar for glazing
Instructions
Place 4 ramekins in a 1 1/2 " high baking pan. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 300 F. Fill a tea kettle or a pot with water, bring to a boil and set aside
Pour the cream in a pan and heat on medium. Add vanilla bean.and bring it to a gentle simmer.
Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks until thick and slightly pale.
Remove the cream from the heat and slowly add cream into the egg mixture, stirring constantly to temper the yolks.
Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve.
Pour the mixture evenly in the prepared ramekins and place into the oven.
Pour hot water, from the tea kettle into the baking pan until the water comes about halfway up the sides of the ramekin.
Bake for 25 -35 minutes or until it barely shivers when shaken. Just keep in mind that different sizes will affect the cooking time.
Cool at room temperature for an hour then refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
Before serving, sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp turbinado sugar on each, using blow torch or oven broiler melt the sugar until it blisters and browns beautifully.
Chill the custard for 15 minutes before serving because the custard can melt under the torch.

Enjoy!

Vanilla Bean Crème Brulee

Impress your Valentine with a sinfully rich dessert which blends the cool velvet smoothness of custard topped with a crisp, caramelized layer of sugar. This fancy dessert, looks more difficult than it really is. Once you have figured out the basic steps, it is extremely easy to put together. The custard in this dessert has the advantage of being made ahead, then just before serving caramelize the top using a kitchen blow torch (or alternately under broiler).

This would be a real treat for your special someone-.
