With Ugadi and Tamil year coming up I wanted to post some simple instant pot sweet recipes that can be offered as neivediyam on these auspicious days. I haven’t posted any instant pot dessert recipe after my Walnut Kheer. So here I am sharing a simple dessert prepared with rice and sugar candy or kalkandu.
Before getting into the Thali spread, here is yet another Gujarati delicacy prepared with my favorite beans – Black eyed peas or cow peas or Lobia (Hindi). I love this legume so much so that, I always prepare pitlai with this instead of chickpeas and that’s what I posted on my blog too. When I saw that Lobia curry is quite common in Gujarati thali spread, I didn’t even think twice and made up my mind to prepare it. I did prepare, and here I am sharing the same with you all.
It’s been a long time since I posted a rasam recipe. I always wanted to try different rasam recipes from other cuisines, and this upcoming thali theme helped me to explore and experiment this tomato charu recipe. I prepared this charu recipe as part of the Andhra/Telangana Thali. This Tomato onion charu recipe with garlic tempering is very soothing and appetizing. It can be served as a rice accompaniment and also as a starter soup.
Whenever I think about stir fry, broccoli always crossed my mind. I love the broccoli stir fry with soy sauce and cane sugar. That subtle sweetness elevates the simple stir fry to the next well. Today I am going to share broccoli stir fry with tofu. These two pairs very well and you get your daily dose of vegetable as well as the protein. :-)
Today I am going to share yet another nutritious stir fry recipe – Instant Pot Kale Stir Fry. This kale stir fry with shallots is not only rice and roti accompaniment but also a perfect side salad for pasta and pizza. If you are not comfortable with raw kale, then this stir fry is perfect bet for you to get acquired to its taste.
I am back with my Instant Pot Recipes. :-) As I mentioned in my previous posts, I started exploring other settings in the instant pot and also started preparing dry curries and stir fry. When I saw “Quick and Easy Stir Fry” as one of the blogging marathon themes for this month, I picked it right away and decided to post all the Instant Pot stir frys that I tried. I love steamed or blanched stir fry. With instant pot steaming and blanching becomes so easy. So the next three recipes are going to be Instant Pot stir fry, and I am starting with the Mushroom Stir Fry today.
Dals/lentils are one of the staple recipes of India. As I mentioned in my Cholar dal post, each and every state have their signature dal recipe. I have been posting simple dal recipes from the different Indian States and today’s dal recipe is the Andhra/Telengana special dal – Tomato Pappu or Tomato Dal. As the name indicates, is prepared with tomato and toor dal. The toor dal and tomatoes are pressure cooked and then simmered with simple spices and the ghee tempering. I am going to share how I prepared this dal in the Instant Pot.
Here is the simple and comforting Maharashtrian style amti dal prepared with toor dal and goda masala in instant pot. Dal and rasam are my favorite and ultimate comfort food. Each and every region/cuisine has its own dal recipe. And all these dal recipes are unique with their own flavor. The cholar dal that I posted yesterday is a very mild dal with coconut and this amti dal is a tangy and mild dal prepared with toor dal.
I know I am posting back to back. I couldn’t resist myself from posting these day-to-day instant pot recipes. If it was sambar yesterday, it has to be a dal today. :-) Today I am presenting you the simple no onion no garlic cholar dal, the Bengali style dal with coconut, and nuts. This is kiddo’s favorite dal and read through the post to see how he prefers this dal.
Here comes my next instant pot recipe – Mixed vegetable sambar. After the kheer, I slowly started to experiment different recipe in my instant pot, especially the day to day recipes like sambar, kootu, poriyal, and rasam.
