What is nimbu juice

[Cooking event] India vegetarian - report and a mint lemonade recipe

Did you at least miss me a little? 😉

After a nice weekend with other gourmet bloggers in Würzburg, my computer suddenly stopped working. Now, after two long weeks, it is finally back here and, thanks to the upgrade, is also faster than ever. Since blogging on my mobile devices is a bit inconvenient and my files and photos are slumbering on the defective hard drive, I allowed myself a blog break to get started again. A lot has been left behind and will be worked through in the next few days and weeks - on business and blogging.

I would like to start with the photos of the ingenious Indian vegetarian cooking event last Saturday, where ten chefs prepared the recipesn record time and very delicious and we could fill our bellies with well cooked, mixed and seasoned dishes. Indian cuisine has had at least two more fans since Saturday.

Curry and co:

Sunhere Rangeel Phool - golden cauliflower florets with peas

Zafrani Paneer Tikka - Cheese and Saffron Tikka

Mila Jula Salaad - mixed salad with jaggery dressing

Dal Tarka - curry with three kinds of legumes

Chatpate Baingan - fried eggplant

Jeera Aloo - potatoes with cumin

Side dishes:

Tarka Mattha - spicy yogurt

Kachumbar Raita - vegetable yogurt

Pyaz Sirkewale - pickled onions

Pudina Dahi Chutney - mint yogurt chutney

Chapatis - Indian flatbreads

I will publish all other recipes in the next few days and link them in this post ..
