Namaste and a warm welcome to all.

As you can see my blog is about food and recipes. I love eating and trying out new recipes all the time.

Very often we mum's think of healthy and interesting food options that we can make for our kids especially when they are back from school knowing that their lunch boxes never come back home empty. Hence I always feel its important to give them a healthy and wholesome snack once they are home. When my kid comes home from school I always try and give him some source of carbohydrate combined with proteins along with this, a fruit and milk, or puddings made from milk. Kids normally can't eat too much at one time, so the portions can be small but giving them a little from each of these food group ensures a balanced meal.

I have some interesting ideas that I'd like to share with you all. You might find some of my recipes very basic but I am hoping that my blog is helpful not only for Indians but for people all around the world! Indian food is quite popular and enjoyed by most, so hopefully you can attempt recipes from here and make it yourself now, in your kitchen. Please do go through my recipes and give it a shot at trying them. Let me know how things turned out and if you enjoyed your experience of cooking.... Feel free to get in touch, share your experience, leave a comment or ask any questions you may have. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look! I do hope its helpful.

Happy cooking!

Tuna Tikki

Vegetarians can make this Tikki with stir fried vegetables instead of the meat used here. Just stir fry together finely chopped french beans, some peas and finely chopped carrots/cabbage.
Use all these fried veggies in place of the meat. The vegetarian tikkis taste yummy as well.

1 can of Tuna fish.
1 Boiled Potato
1/2 onion (finely chopped)
2 tbspn of fresh finely chopped coriander
Oil (for shallow frying)
1 Slice of bread (white bread or whole wheat bread)

1 small green chilly (finely chopped)
1/2 tspn garam masala
1/2 tbspn of lemon juice
1 tspn red chilly powder

Wash the tuna fish with water and drain out all the water. Mix the tuna and boiled potato together.

Add onions.

Soak 1 slice of bread in water and squeeze immediately with both hands to remove all the water from the bread. Now break the bread into pieces and add it into the bowl with rest of the ingredients.

Add garam masala.

Add finely chopped coriander and salt.

Mix and mash all ingredients together with hand.

Add lemon juice.

Add red chilly powder and finely chopped green chilly and mix well.

Heat oil in a non stick pan.

Make round flat shapes from the Tuna dough you have prepared. Once the oil is hot turn the flame on medium and put the tikkis (cutlets) into the pan.

Flip, so the other side can cook.

Both the sides should be cooked well and the color should be a nice brown one.

Serve hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup. You can also use other meats like chicken mince or beef mince. This recipe remains same with any other meat you use, however I wash the chicken/beef mince with water, then steam the meat and then follow the steps in this recipe.
