  • Kiri Hodi - Sri Lankan Coconut Milk Curry
    Wild Card Winner
    Cook time 20 mins

    Kiri Hodi or the coconut milk curry of Sri Lanka is a dish we fell in love with during our recent travel through this simple, charming and beautiful country .Kiri means milk and Hodi means curry. This simple yet versatile curry is served as an accompaniment to Kottu Roti, steamed rice, hoppers, string hoppers and much more. Make any quantities, the key is to balance the sourness to the sweetness of coconut milk. A one pan cook it requires no oil or tempering. I have found having Kiri Hodi during the hot and humid days very refreshing and soothing. A good break from our dal and kadhi!!

  • Grilled Pineapple Jalapeño Mocktail
    Wild Card Winner
    Cook time 10 mins

    Pineapple Jalapeno Mocktail has to be my favorite for only one reason – I LOVE Grilled Pineapple and I can’t stress this enough...,when you grill the fresh pineapple, it caramelizes the sugars and intensify the sweetness of the pineapple. And then when you muddle a bit of Jalapeno with the grilled pineapple, the heat from Jalapeno adds the right amount of spiciness and that makes this mocktail amazing.

  • Rajasthani Missi Roti...
    Cook time 15 mins

    This traditional Indian flat bread combines the goodness of wheat flour and gram flour. There is typically either a Punjabi or a Rajasthani version in this. Carom seeds are added in Rajasthani version of this scrumptious roti and fenugreek leaves are added in the Punjabi version. Both of them are equally good and taste just phenominal. The careful blend of spices and the yoghurt makes this very soft and tasty version of a roti. No doubt it tops my weekly menu chart at home. Add 1/2 tsp chat masala powder and 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander while kneading the flour . Another variation is to skip carom seeds and instead add 1/2 tbsp roasted and crushed anaardana , 1/2 tbsp kasoori methi and 3 tbsps chopped coriander leaves to give it a punjabi touch . Traditionally , missi roti is cooked directly over flame . To prepare it in a traditional way , when tiny bubbles start to rise on the surface , flip it and cook for a minute . Then remove the griddle from flame and place half cooked roti directly on flame . Flip the roti again and cook till both the sides have the brown spots .
