Kesari Mango Lassi
Double tap if you like mangos! In Mango season it’s impossible not to make this creamy and delicious “Kesari Mango Lassi”.
Mango lassi is one of my favorite Indian drinks in summer. It’s a perfect drink because its sweet, cold and refreshing much needed to cool off in this hot weather. Adding few saffron strands, cardamom, vanilla bean enhances the taste and makes it super delicious!!
Sometimes I freeze fresh mango cubes and use them to make lassi or mango nice cream even after mango season is over. Try this dreamy Mango Lassi and you will fall in love with Mangos all over again!!
Besan Chilla is one of our favorite breakfast options on the weekends. It can be whipped up in literally 10 minutes and can be enjoyed with crunchy toast, cilantro/mint chutney and masala chai.
I absolutely love the versatility of chickpea flour-the question is: what can’t be made with this gluten-free flour? Savory crepes check, desserts check, fritters check and I also remember back in India, we use to make a chickpea flour face pack mixed with yogurt and turmeric for exfoliating our skin and making it glow!
We enjoy eating it with cilantro/mint chutney, cardamom and cinnamon latte and sourdough toast on the side!
Thai Crunch Salad with Peanut dressing
Thai Crunch Salad is such a fun play on different colors, textures and flavors. When we think of Thai flavors-it is right combination of creaminess, sweetness, kick of spice and salt all in one bite. This salad is so easy to prepare using highly nutritious ingredients perfect to enjoy during spring and summer seasons.
For a beautiful and elegant presentation, we use silky butter lettuce as a base of the salad and layer it with colorful vegetables, protein packed edamame, toasted sesame seeds, fresh thai basil and microgreens. The creamy peanut butter dressing drizzled on top is definitely the star of this delicious salad. By using simple pantry ingredients and no added oils, we came up with a finger licking dressing that you’ll crave for extra leftovers everytime!
