Mother is our closest friend. Most of us are inspired by our mother in so many ways. My mother has been my inspiration throughout my life. Her recipes are the ones I always love to make, of course with my own little experiments in them! I share them often on the blog as well. Some of my best recipes are straight from my mother’s kitchen.
There is no food better than a plate of deliciousness that our mom makes. We all love our mother’s recipes. I am no exception as well 🙂 My comfort food has always been food made by her. I always look forward to the weekend which I spend with her to receive her pampering and love which she puts into the food which she makes. All my inspiration for cooking and loving every bit of the process has been passed on by her.
In fact, some of my best recipes that I share with you or make for dinner for my friends and family are inspired by her. They have all been inspired by her kitchen or passed on by her to me.
In truth, the recipes, from making homemade fresh and delicious paneer to making the no oil lemon pickle (nimbu ka achaar), Multani Chole or Multani moong are from my Grandmother which she passed on to my mom. I have been blessed to have been passed down the legacy of succulent and healthy food.
Last weekend, I hosted a weekend party for my friends and family. And as I am often asked how I keep up with the hectic work schedule while cooking such delicious food. My answer is simple, I have my Mother’s Kitchen Recipes to back me up.
We all miss the comfort of our home, so to ease things up I am sharing Recipes that have been passed on to me.
Punjabi Dal Palak:
This spicy dal palak recipe is straight from My Mother’s Kitchen. I remember I have had this so many times, I fell in love with Palak! :p The punjabi dal palak is healthy and delicious and can be made for lunch or dinner.
Tamatar Wala Paneer:
I remember how my mother used to make this dish in less than 20 minutes. She also used to club it in sandwiches too. It tasted so good and spicy. This is one such recipe I usually make, courtesy of my mother’s amazing kitchen!
Kala Chana Curry:
We all love Kalal Chana, don’t we? This easy and flavourful Punjabi style curry has been cooked in every kitchen and loved by all. I always make this recipe exactly the way my Mother taught me and believe me, it smells so divine and tastes delicious. You can read and make the same homemade recipe of Kala Chana Curry here.
Karele Ke Chilke Ki Sabzi:
As the name suggests, this recipe is made with Karele Ka Chilka/ Bitter Gourd. Being a dry dish it is usually served with rotis or butter chapatis. The secret to making the dish that I learned from My Mother is to first boil the karela or salt it to reduce its bitterness. Try the karele ke Chilke Ki Sabzi here and you won’t be disappointed!
Aloo Shimla Mirch Sabzi:
