Punjabi Rajma Masala | Red Kidney Beans Curry recipe by morEwish


Rajma, or red kidney bean curry is a go-to comfort food for many Indian people. Since I am adding more legumes to our diet I recently tried this recipe, since then having it very often. The creaminess of the red beans simmered in tomatoes with the spice from the gravy is perfect over a steaming bowl of rice or with chapati roti like we are having it.




Beans are a staple food in so many cultures around the world. They’re nutritious, contain protein as well as fiber, they’re widely available, inexpensive and above all- almost every culture has a comfort food version including beans.




Besides being easy to make, this dish is healthy and vegan. This recipe is so versatile, if you have a favorite way of making Kidney Beans, you can simply use this recipe as a guideline and use your spices!

3/4th cups Rajma (Red kidney beans) or 1 can

No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake 🍓 | How to slice Cheesecake 🍰 perfectly by morEwish



I absolutely love cheesecake, and I absolutely love strawberries. The only problem is that when the weather heats up and strawberries are in season, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven for an hour to bake a cheesecake. That's why I needed the perfect no bake cheesecake recipe.
This no bake cheesecake is as simple as they come, no fancy ingredients or techniques involved. I want to take advantage of fresh strawberries 🍓 while they are in their peak season so I made my No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake.



I love how this no bake cheesecake recipe has a classic cheesecake flavor and creamy texture, but is way easier than making a baked cheesecake. The fresh strawberries give a beautiful pop of color and taste, and it’s the best no bake cheesecake recipe I’ve ever tried.

I’m continually surprised by how amazingly delicious a no bake cheesecake can be. And that is doubly true since Cool Whip, is not in the list of ingredients. Anything made with Cool Whip to me just tastes, well, like Cool Whip. Certainly not cheesecake, that’s for sure. (Although I am big fan of cool whip) 😋




Although cutting cheesecake is quite straightforward, there are a few tricks to achieving perfect slices. I’ve messed up enough cheesecakes to know this for a fact, by the way. So, to help you, I’ve outlined a step-by-step process that, with a little practice, will yield even slices.

First of all, it is easier to cut a cheesecake that is well chilled. Therefore, just remember to take your cheesecake out of the freezer a little while before you plan to cut it. Don’t let it come to room temperature, though.

Another easy trick to cutting cheesecake neatly is that of keeping the knife you are using clean and smooth. Constant dipping and cleaning will prevent chunks of cake from the previous slice from landing or sticking to the top of the next slice.
 (I get impatient. Maybe you do, too. Easier to just take a fork to the damn thing, isn’t it?) 🍴




Smooth and creamy, and filled with real, fresh-tasting strawberry flavor, this cheesecake gets the texture just right 🍰 — even without all the fuss of an oven and a water bath and all that. Wouldn’t it be perfect for your holiday table?

Ingredients:


For the crust1 1/2 cups (225 g) garham cracker crust
6 tablespoons (84 g) unsalted butter, melted

For the cheesecake filling1 pound (16 ounces)  hulled fresh strawberries (or frozen strawberries)
1/4 cup (2 ounces) lukewarm water, divided
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon (8 g) unflavored powdered gelatin
1 cup (8 ounces) heavy whipping cream, chilled
2 8-ounce packages (1 pound total) cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

For decoratingSliced fresh strawberries, for decorating

Chinese Sesame Chicken 🥡 with Vegetable Fried Rice 🍚 recipe by morEwish️ ️




Craving Chinese? Get a dinner that's fresher—but just as fast as—takeout with this easy sesame chicken. A little bit salty, a little bit sweet, and a touch nutty, the chicken is cooked to a golden brown finish. Just add steamed broccoli or Crunchy Asian Salad as a side, for a well rounded meal and dinner is served! I served with Vegetable Fried Rice today 🍚




Everyone loves Chinese Sesame Chicken— deep-fried and crispy chicken coated with a sweet, savory sauce, and speckled with lots of sesame seeds. Here and you can probably make this homemade in about the same amount of time that it takes for the take out guy to get to your door. 🇨🇳



This fried rice is loaded with veggies and only takes 20 minutes to make! Vegetable Fried Rice has to be one of my family all time favorite dishes. I love making Chinese food at home and fried rice is always the perfect accompaniment to my takeout style dishes. Fried rice is one of those things that can be made from just about anything. All you need is some leftover rice and various mix-ins. If I am making it for a company I always pre-boil rice with salt and keep them in fridge before stir frying them, they won't break into bits while mixing.

Ingredients:


Chicken:
1 large egg
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 pinch each salt and pepper
1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
Oil for frying

Sauce:

Fish Scramble 🐟 | Fish Puttu 💙 recipe by morEwish






As I am trying to add more fish in our diet and a lover of seafood, I am constantly on the look out for new recipes. The idea for this recipe came from a recipe for Srilankan shark fish scramble/puttu that I came across recently. So I designed this Scrambled fish recipe, to satisfy our taste buds.





This Scrambled fish recipe has been deliciously flavoured by mustard and with a hint of chilli. This dish can be made with any other white fish like tilapia or catfish, that can be flaked easily. Just cook the fish until its fully done and ready to be flaked. This can be done in any of these 2 methods:
Steam / boil the fish on a stove until it is fully cooked. Remove from heat, drain any water left and allow the fish to cool for a little bit. Or bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes in a lightly oil-coated pan, drain any water.



It’s so simple and only takes trying once to find out how true that is. The fishy flavors are beautifully camouflaged in this recipe but  it is the fish after all that’s lending the dish its superb taste.


Video Tutorial:



Ingredients:

Tuna in water - 3/4 cans or boneless fish fillets – 1 lb
Oil – 3 tbsp
Dry red chilies – 2, broken
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Onion – 1 medium, chopped fine
Green chilies – 4, slit
Red chili powder – 1 tsp or to taste
Coriander powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala – 1/2 tsp
Salt – to taste
Coconut – 1/4 cup, shredded or chopped into small bits (optional)
Cilantro – 3/4 tbsp, chopped
