I’m just back from a quick weekend getaway in Jodhpur, where I was invited to the launch of a book on the Temple Food of India. The weather was cool, the night a little a nippy. With my friends I gorged on the mirchi vadas and pyaaz ki kachoris that Jodhpur is famous for and drank hot, spiced, masala chai. Back home in Mumbai, it’s not cold, but cool enough to want to cook up rich stews, hearty soups and bakes. The market is flooded with beautiful root veggies and tender beans, and I’m sure it is perfect weather (somewhere) for a warm, cozy, family meal.

So, I thought I’d put together a bunch of recipes from the blog that I will be making (again) this season. Of course, there will be new ones as well! But, here’s something to get you started and to tempt you to embrace the gorgeousness of this lovely weather. Go, buy those beans and chilies, and crank up your ovens!

  1. Apple Pie with Samosa Strips 
  2. Caramelized Onion, Mushroom, and Paneer Tart
  3. Eggplant in Chili Garlic Sauce
  4. Tempered Tomato Soup (Video)
  5. Bissi Bele Bhath 
  6. Masale Bhaat (Video)
  7. Undhiyu (Video)
  8. Stuffed Chili Pickle 
  9. Olive, Basil, Sun dried Tomato, and Garlic Bread 
  10. Tiramisu Liqueur Cake with Vanilla Mascarpone and Strawberries in Syrup

And while you do that, I’ll go back to finalizing the recipes for my Christmas Goodies Masterclass at APB Cook Studio early next month and for the Bring Home My Jhola classes for the rest of this year. Until next time, stay warm, everyone!
