Bharwan Karela / Stuffed Bittergourd / Karela masaledar

Bitter for the winter!
If you like bitter gourd then this is the dish for you and if you are on the borderline then I would say jump in because this bharwan karela is not at all bitter.
But if you are the kind who kills the veggie with loads of salt then gives it 100 washes to take away its bitterness. I would say run away from here.Just kidding.:)))
Just to let you know- Bittergourds are not as bitter as it used to be in olden days. These days u get a lot of hybrid varieties which are milder.

Til ki chikki / Til patti / Sesame Brittle

Sesame brittle / Til ki chikki 
Sesame seed and melted sugar makes this most beautiful shiny tile like looking crunchy snack. The pieces are firm yet brittle when you snap it with your fingers, u can hear the crispness when it breaks. I am sure all Indians who grew up in the 80s -90s and before would have tried this at least once. A snack cleverly made to get all the required calcium of course sweet coated. I don't see these in bakeries getting VIP seats in glass cases or jars anymore those seats are all swamped by the sickening frosted cakes and no purpose flour cookies.

So here is some old fashioned snack and reviving old world charm.

Baked yogurt kabab / Dahi ka Kabab / High protein diet

Yogurt Kabab/ Dahi ke Kabab is an ideal Indian snack /short eat to go with a hot cup of tea especially during  rainy season. Just the right thing to make me feel better on a gloomy, dark and snowy day.The kabab is not too spicy and has a slight tang from the Greek yogurt used and whole crushed chick peas gives it the crunch. The yogurt and chickpeas combination makes the kabab a high protein healthy baked savory snack which can be enjoyed anytime of the day.
Dahi ka kabab is a strong contender in the vegetarian section of kababs. A Middle Eastern cuisine brought to India centuries ago by the Mughals to Lucknow,U.P.The Awadhi cuisine is famous for lot of richly spiced and creamy like velvet savory and sweet delicacies to their credit.Vegetarian and non-vegetarian kabab are just one of their specialties.
