Chana dal khichdi

This is festival staple and come bhai-dhooj, it would be made in our household year on year, along with halwa.

Edamame hummus on toast

I came up with this recipe after returning from a long holiday in India, with a pretty much empty fridge staring at me and too tired and lazy to go out, indeed ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’.
