Mango-Greek Yogurt-Strawberry "Lassi" Popsicle

Fruity, sweet, creamy, refreshing and healthy summer treat brimming over with flavors of fresh mangoes and roasted cardamom.. Yum!

Did I ever tell you that I got this "DIY Popsicle" bug for more than a year now. And, I finally decided to take the plunge. Summer is here and what is more satisfying than a cold home-made popsicle on a hot sunny day? Ah.. home-made popsicles.. can the deal get any sweeter?!

Gobi "Cauliflower" Musallam

Ughhh... I hate chopping cauliflowers. Chopping cauliflowers involves a lot of work and cleaning after. The florets are so crumbly and messy, that you will end up having little white bits everywhere on your countertop. So when I saw this recipe, it was right up my alley as the head of cauliflower can be used as is.

Mughlai style, rich & creamy Gobi Musallam may look like a lot of work but the end result is SO worth it! Try this recipe once and I am sure that it will become your go-to dish for parties & get-together! You can serve this perfectly cooked cauliflower on a bed of hot rice or with roti/naan.

Whole Enchiladas

"Whole" enchilada is a traditional Mexican recipe where stuffed (usually black-beans for vegetarian option) tortillas (I made multi-grain tortillas) are covered and cooked in tomatoes & chile based "enchilada" sauce. I served whole-enchiladas with a Corn-Mango-Avocado salsa (recipe below) on the side.

Multi-grain Tortilla

Tortillas, being the staple food of Mexicans, is the first thing that you need to work with any Mexican recipes. Flour/Corn/Wheat/Multi-grain, Small/Large -  yes, there are lot of commercial tortillas available in the market. But, why buy them, when you can make them at home, that too for less!

Home-made tortillas are way too thin, soft, chewy, simple & healthy too. These home-made tortillas made a wonderful base for my enchiladas (recipe here).
