With high summer temperatures, our family and friends in India are really very familiar. And they shared a simple but super refreshing drink recipe with us: Nimbu Pani. The Indian lemonade not only provides important vitamins, but also brings an exotic touch to our tongues. Weiterlesen
The autumn wind swirls coloured leaves through the cool air. Yellow. Red. Orange. In the bare tree tops and on the electrical lines the last birds gather and fly in large swarms to the south. Our thoughts follow them. Towards the Mediterranean Sea, across Turkey, the Arabian Peninsula and the former Persia. Up to India.
This recipe from Amma Nishi will let you travel along – at least for a meal, I promise! 😊 Weiterlesen
Apart from the good company, the cosy Chai times and the exciting conversations, the delicious food is definitely one of the main reasons why we love the visits of Amma Nishi (Sachin’s mother). 😊 One of our favourites is the tasty Aloo Paratha – flatbread filled with potatoes. Along with this, Amma Nishi usually serves Daal – a simple lentil curry. Weiterlesen

The delicious creamy Daal Makhani is clearly one of our favourites of Indian cuisine. The simple dish of brown lentils and kidney beans, refined by selected spices, tastes especially in combination with flatbread or rice and green chutney excellent. In addition, the brown daal supplies valuable fibre and plant based proteins, lowers your cholesterol and hardly raises the glucose.
Unfortunately, however, many restaurants justify the nickname ‚Makhani‘ – creamy, buttery – by turning the dish into a greasy soup with lots of cream and butter. Our variant comes without these additives and is nevertheless wonderfully creamy – promise! Weiterlesen
One of the main reason that we LOVE Indian cuisine is the huge variety of chutneys.The taste range starts from sweet mango over hot chili to refreshing lime. Chutneys can be eaten as a dip with fresh veggies, as a bread spread, as a side sauce with paratha or dosa or just as an extra flavour added to your Thali.
We especially appreciate the homemade green chutney from Sachins mom cause it litterally goes along with everything. Therefore we wanna share this very simple recipe with you. Weiterlesen
Sun. Warmth. Light. A light breeze plays with the fans of the coconut palms. Lunchtime. Even the parrots doze away We relax in a hammock and sip a Gulab Lassi – a refreshing rose yogurt drink following a thousand year old ayurvedic recipe.
In Ayurveda the rose is considered to be cooling, balancing and refreshing. It is supposed to regulate the pitta and thus balance heart and emotions. No wonder that the rose is called the ‘Queen of flowers’ and stands for love. Weiterlesen
