Love the exotic flavour of Sushi but don’t have the time to prepare it, or don’t have access to the ingredients? Not to worry. We have brought together Indian and Japanese styles to create a dhokla-based sushi, which anybody can make and enjoy any time! You can also surprise your guests with this innovative snack. We use a base of idli batter cooked in a dhokla thali for the sushi. This base is then lined with black sesame seeds and coconut on one side, and a cheesy, spicy garlic chutney on the other. Crunchy capsicum strips are placed on the idli base before rolling and cutting it up like a sushi! Serve the Dhokla Sushi with Bell Peppers with the wasabi mayo mix to complete the awesome experience. When you have more time, try pucca sushi recipes like the Cucumber Sushi and Avocado and Cream Cheese Sushi as well as other Oriental delicacies like the Steamed Wontons .
If you always thought dosas are only for breakfast, this recipe will make you think again about the versatility of this all-time favourite South Indian delicacy. In this mouth-watering treat, dosas are cut into strips, deep-fried till crisp, and served with a tongue-tickling Honey Chilli Sauce, which delights your taste buds with a burst of tang, a dash of sweetness and a touch of spice too! To make Fried Dosa Strips with Honey Chilli Sauce, you need to start with dosas that are crisp but not too crisp. If the dosas are too crisp, they will crumble and you will not be able to cut them neatly with a knife. Once you get this right, you are assured of the success of this dish. The dosa lover’s must-try list also includes Sada Dosa and Spring Dosa , a famous Mumbai Roadside snack.
This is a smoothie that every tea-lover would have dreamed of, but never tried! Well, we tried it for you and it turned out great – so now it’s your turn. In this unique creation, tea and curds are blended together with an aromatic spice infusion and a hint of vanilla and nutmeg, to make a refreshing smoothie that has a strong tinge of tea. The Spiced Chai Smoothie gets its flavour from a special infusion of honey and whole spices. It is important to allow this mixture to cook for the specified time, in order to get a rich aroma and flavour. It is also essential to let the tea bags to infuse in the spiced water for a whole five minutes – if it is not properly infused, you will not get a deep tea flavour in the smoothie. Follow the recipe as mentioned, and you will end up with a really exotic treat!

An off-beat drink that’s thundering with spices, the Pineapple and Green Capsicum Drink is sure to captivate all your guests. This unique offering combines the spiky taste of capsicum and the sweet tanginess of pineapple with the josh of black salt and spice powders. This drink must be had in small quantities, for the experience to be completely enjoyable, so please put away the tall glasses. We also suggest making this drink just before serving because it tends to decolorize. If you like pineapple juice with combos, then do try these - Peach, Pineapple and Orange Drink and Pineapple, Blueberry and Coconut Drink .
Unlike the common samosas that are stuffed with soft, potato-based mixtures, the Cheese and Spring Onion Samosa has a totally different filling, which gives it an exciting texture and unique taste too. The stuffing of cheese and spring onions seasoned with red chilli flakes, gives you a fabulous mouth-feel combining the gooeyness of cheese, the crunch of onions and the inherent heat of chillies. Make sure you fry the Cheese and Spring Onion Samosa on a medium flame, otherwise the plain flour covering will get cooked too soon but the stuffing will remain raw. Since this samosa has an Oriental touch, you can serve it with Chilli Garlic Sauce. Explore more samosa options like the regular Samosa and Mini Onion Samosa.
