Soya Nuggets Curry October 9, 2010

I am not a big fan of soya nuggets and these nuggets are strangers in my kitchen. However, I like soya granules and cook it once in a while. The reason I don’t particular like soya nuggets is, no matter how much spice I add to it, it always tastes bland and I also do not like the texture of nuggets. I have eaten soya nuggets at my relatives places and it tasted fine. I tried following their recipe but cooking good soya nuggets just wasn’t my cup of tea! I normally soak the nuggets in boiling water, squeeze out all the water from the nuggets and cook it along with a vegetable such as spinach or beans.  No matter how I cooked, it never appealed to my taste buds.

Lisa’s Black & Yellow Chickpeas in a Sweet & Spicy Sauce April 21, 2009

For the month of April, Lisa’s Kitchen is the featured blog for Tried & Tasted event, started by Zlamushka.  Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen is hosting it this month.  Lisa has an array of Indian vegetarian recipes on her blog.  I usually cook Indian food at home and hence tried her Black & Yellow Chickpeas in a Sweet & Spicy Sauce.

I followed her recipe with a few changes.  I substituted Red Kidney Beans with Red Cow Peas, as I did not have any kidney beans in my pantry.  I used 8-10 green chilies and ½ tsp of chili powder  to satisfy my palate.   I pressured cooked the beans for 5 whistles as it is faster to cook in a pressure cook.  My Urad and cow peas were a over cooked and mushy, and chickpeas were cooked to perfection.  Next time I prepare it, I will pressure cook the beans for only 4 whistles and if required,  I will either pressure cook for another whistle or cook the beans on the stove top until the beans are cooked.

I served my Chickpeas in a Sweet & Spicy Sauce with rice.  It would be a nice side dish to serve with roties and parathas too.
