Very Good 4.8/5
(5 ratings)

This is how I make chai when I need something warm that makes me feel enveloped in comfort without the added calories of my former addiction: hot chocolate. It's spicier (in a warming way that is very soothing) and lighter in taste than any chai from a coffee shop. The method is also quite authentic. If you can, make sure to use fresh, whole cardamom pods, whole cloves, and freshly ground black pepper. You can also add a couple of drops of vanilla extract or use a very small amount of fresh ginger. The recipe is calculated with four teaspoons of sugar, but it is completely up to you.

I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

This is similar to chapati but the difference is that this is almost oil free and very low fat. It ia high in fibre and considered to be one of the best deit or low cholesterol food in India. You can have this for breakfast lunch and dinner.

Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5
(84 ratings)

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.
