Happiness is Home-Made Food
Well you all must be shocked to read about me writing about home-made food,or rather the fancy word these days “Maa ke haath ka khana”. Well we all have been to fancy restaurants every now then,ever wondered why is it that we love our mom’s cooked food rather than resto food? why is it that we find home-made roti sabjzi more tasty and priceless compared to Michelin star chefs food?
Today i am going to take you through a journey where i would like to tell you about my favourite homemade food.
the list is never-ending , but still i have managed to list my Top 5 for you guys.
- Pesto Penna Pasta
- Paneer Bhurji Sandwich
- homemade mini pizza
- Hummus & Pita Bread
- Low Cal Peri Paneer with Veggies Salad.
Pesto Penne Pasta
This pasta is a combination of pesto sauce which is made out of nuts,parmesan cheese,garlic, loads of olive oil and most important Fresh Basil leaves.
Mixed the pesto sauce with boiled penne and added some salt to taste and a dash of peri peri mix for the spice, and how can you forget cheese, my mom garnished the pasta with a huge amount of parmesan cheese. 🙂
Paneer Bhurji Sandwich
as the name suggest, it’s a basic paneer burji a mix of paneer,capsicum,onions,tomato and spices mixed together but of course my mom made it a bit spicy as per my taste preference.
one the burji was prepared my mom made a toast from brown bread and topped it with spicy paneer burji and my all time favourite cheese and paprika powder. 🙂
Homemade Healthy Mini Pizza
when we talk about pizzas we always think about huge amount of calories and totally unhealthy topped with cheese, but i would like to break the glass here and tell you about the healthy version of my mom’s mini pizza, these mini pizzas are made of capsicum,onions,tomato,cabbage and of course cheese. the base was wheat base and had pizza sauce and the veggies on top and cheese in last. you guys should definitely give these pizzas a try.
Burnt Garlic Hummus with Pita Bread
i personally love homemade hummus made by my mom, but this time my mom wanted to experiment and she added the flavour of burnt garlic, and believe me folks it tasted like heaven, if you’re a fan of strong flavours and specially garlic this recipe is a must try for all garlic lovers, hummus is a basic mixture of chickpeas, Tahini sauce,olive oil and garlic,salt and dash of paprika.
of course the pita bread were brought fresh from the bakery, and vanilla coke just added to the whole meal that night.
Low Cal Peri Paneer with Veggies Salad
This salad dish in my home menu was originally created by my masi and latter a few additions made by my mom has led to this all time favourite and filly dish on our menu.
Peri paneer is a basically home-made paneer made from cow’s milk and flatten it, later all veggies (capsicum,cucumber,tomato,onion) are cut in dices and mixed with a tangy sauce of schezwan,ketchup,peri peri and Sriracha. this mix is topped on the flat paneer and a few cheese bits on top and a pinch of chaat masala sprinkled for that chatpata taste on our palates and this whole dish is put in the air fryer for 5 mins or till the cheese melts a bit and voila. BON APPETITE.
These were few of the Home Made Dishes that i absolutely love and always crave for, i am sure you too have some favourite home-made dishes specially made by you loved ones for you. do share your favourite with me too, looking forward to reading them soon.
