Indian Foods to Cook in November

Nothing can match the goodness, taste or freshness of season’s vegetables. How often we have heard grandpas and grandmas tell us to eat ‘what grows in our garden’ – in today’s context, it might not literally refer to foods grown in our backyard, but what they mean is that we should eat foods that grow naturally in a particular season without any artificial environmental control (like artificial lighting, temperature control to grow summer veggies in winter and vice versa!) They would say just sprinkle the seeds and Mother Nature will take care of the rest – this is true only of seasonal veggies and fruits.

How do you know what is in season? Just look around the in the market – the seasonal produce will be everywhere, and in abundance. What’s ‘in’ in November? Let’s check it out…

1. Avocado
Gifted with abundant nutrients, a mellow flavour and creamy texture, the avocado lends itself to numerous recipes ranging from sandwiches and salads to smoothies and milkshakes. Many people use it as a substitute for buttery spreads on their breakfast toast. The Avocado and Coconut Crostini is a delicious starter made with this yummy fruit. You can also make accompaniments like the Avocado and Feta Mash, which is an awesome combo for your breakfast toast; or the Avocado Dip, which goes well with Corn Chips with Salsa and Avocado Dip.

2. Pomegranate
Who can resist popping some brightly-coloured, juicy and fresh pomegranate into their mouth! Tasty and juicy, this fruit is a peppy addition to salads, juices, raitas and what not. Pomegranate Tea is a tasty beverage that is also very rejuvenating. The Pear and Pomegranate Salad and the Boondi and Pomegranate Raita are awesome accompaniments that are sure to boost the appeal of any meal. The best part is that all these are very easy to make so you can try them right away…

3. Oranges
Yippeee! Oranges are here and freely available in Nov and Dec and you will very always find them sweet in taste and very rarely sour. With a refreshingly tangy-sweet flavour, the orange is also a very handy fruit. If you keep an orange in your handbag, you can easily peel and eat it when you are hungry or thirsty – it is sure to reboot your energy levels. Its unique flavour also lends itself to the preparation of many dishes. While juices and salads are common fare, we show you some innovative ways to use oranges –milky-tangy desserts like the Orange Kheer and Orange Ice Cream, and an exotic accompaniment from Lebanese cuisine, the Orange Sesame Tabbouleh.

4. Celery
The excitingly crunchy texture and delicate, mildly-salty taste of celery has made it very popular. In many households, celery is stocked up regularly like Coriander, Mint, Potatoes and other staples. Its awesome flavour lends itself to many continental dishes, although it is used sometimes in Indian cooking too. Our favourites, however, are the Celery Soup, and starter-cum-snacks like the Cheesy Carrot and Celery Cigars and the Cheese Celery Garlic Toast.

5. Guava ( also called as Peru)
They are freely available in this month and you can try these below recipes :
Guava Punch, Guava Chutney, Watermelon and Guava Juice

6. Sweet Lime (also called as Mosambi)
Mosambi’s are freely available in November and December and you will very always find them sweet in taste and very rarely sour.
Some recipes are : Sweet Lime Pomegranate and Apple Juice, Mara Mara Juice
