    Makhana Chops

    Nutty Yogi

    Available on LBB

    Meat chops or cutlets are so yesterday! This puffed lotus seed chops are delicious, vegetarian, will be (we can vouch) a dinner favourite once you make them and most importantly won't disappoint the carnivore in you. Most versions use raw seeds, but we're using Nutty Yogi's ready-to-eat Makhana that does the job just as well!

    1. In a bowl, soften the Nutty Yogi Makhana with some water and oil. Do not make a very wet mixture.

    2. Add boiled potatoes or arbi (colocasia) and mash well.

    3. To this, add red chilli powder, green chillies, rock salt, ginger and mint. Mix well.

    4. Make flat round patties out of this.

    5. Shall fry them in ghee or any oil of choice (you can make this vegan too) and serve hot with some mint chutney.

    Crispy Baked Chicken

    One of our favourites on the list! This is a crispy chicken with a twist. Now we've all heard of potato chips used to crust our delicious bird, but this time we're using To Be Honest's, Sweet Potato Crunchies In Peri Peri flavour. Nom, nom. The result is a healthy, protein filled dish that also makes use of a healthy snack! And with just three ingredients this is one of the easiest dinners you'll make. To Be Honest also has a whole range of other vegetable crunchies that you can use if you don't like sweet potato. 

    1. Section your chicken breasts lengthwise and tenderise by gently beating them down with a rolling pin.

    2. Generously season them with salt and pepper. You can add some garam masala if you'd like and let marinate.

    3. In a flat dish beat a couple of eggs and set aside. And in another dish crush up To Be Honest Sweet Potato chips.

    4. Now dredge the chicken in the egg and then into the chips for it to form a delicious crust.

    5. Bake in the 150 degree Celsius pre-heated oven (or fry) for 15 minutes and serve hot with a side of mayo or house sauce. 

    Instant Amla Pickle

    Go Desi

    Available on LBB

    Thought we'll throw in a fun condiment after we found Amla Bites from Go Desi to help with those basic meals too. These amla bites are dried and supposed to be candies and have sugar which we think when jazzed up with some Indian pickling spices will blow your mind. All in all, a piquant, sweet and salty instant amla pickle recipe that is spoon-licking good!  

    1. Boil Go Desi Amla Bites with very little water and let it cook. Just till the amla softens ever so slightly and the water mixture turns almost syrupy.

    2. In a pan fry mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and add some asafoetida.

    3. To the same add chilli powder, turmeric powder, fennel seed powder and mix well. Add salt and some lemon juice too.

    4. Now add the Alma and syrup to this mixture and stir well. Let it marinate for about 15 minutes.

    5. Amla pickle is ready! You can refrigerate for it to last longer too.
