A classic recipe that has stood the test of time... we present to you the ever-popular Vegetable Pizza. While this is a basic pizza that is easy and quick to prepare, it has a universal appeal and is the safest bet to place on a party menu. We have used readymade pizza base, so you can prepare the pizzas in a jiffy. A colourful assortment of veggies gives this pizza an interesting crunch, while pizza sauce and a dash of spices and herbs give it an awesome flavour. Cheese, of course, makes the pizza what it is, so we need to say nothing about. Pizza lovers, we would also suggest you try other recipes like the Tomato and Cheese Pizza and Tandoori Paneer Pizza .

This protein-rich rice preparation also presents a fiesta of colours, thanks to the use of a large variety of sprouts and veggies. Traditional indian spices add flavour to the rice, while the innovative use of pav bhaji masala imparts a tempting aroma to the vegetable preparation. The method adopted, of preparing the rice and veggies separately and then mixing them ensures that this mixed sprouts rice is conveniently moist and not too dry. It is as good as having a pulao and a subzi, but in a convenient one-dish format that you will love. Serve with a raita of your choice, and voila, you have a delicious and sumptuous meal.

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 .
Fresh, homemade quesadillas stuffed with the choicest combination of vegetables, this one is sure to make you drool unabashedly! Broccoli, Bell Pepper and Cheese Quesadillas are perfect is every aspect, be it the combination of colours, flavours or textures. Crunchy vegetables, gooey cheese and flavourful seasonings, what more can you ask for in a quesadilla filling? Cooking the quesadillas with the filling done ensures that they bind together well inside, while being crisp outside – once again, a sign of perfection!

Packed with excitement; that describes the Aloo Methi Parathas best of all! These sumptuous whole wheat parathas are stuffed with a delectable mixture of potatoes flavoured with fenugreek leaves, cumin seeds and spice powders, which makes them so tasty that they can be served straight and simple with just curds and pickles. When the methi is sautéed, it sheds its bitterness, thereby imparting only its positive characteristics such as its strong aroma and unmistakable flavour to the dish. Indeed, this is a main course that will appeal to all!

The Che-Mato Pasta is a delicious one-dish meal that you can have as an evening snack or even for supper. You may add more vegetables like grated carrots, cabbage, beans, etc. Along with the capsicum. The tomato puree gives a tangy touch, while the grated cheese makes it quite filling. Che-Mato Pasta pairs well with Toasted Triangles or Caraway Seed Toast .

Happiness often comes in small and simple packages! The Broccoli and Baby Corn Noodles is such an one-dish meal that is sure to satisfy your whole family. Noodles, combined with baby corn, broccoli and other crunchy vegetables is simply flavoured with salt and pepper, and served hot and fresh. Despite its simplicity, every mouthful of the Broccoli and Baby Corn Noodles bursts with flavour thanks to the inclusion of garlic, ginger and several vibrant veggies.
Mashed Potatoes with Sautéed Vegetables is an elegant but sumptuous dish that has a pleasant flavour, which everybody will love. As the name suggests, it is nothing but perfectly mashed potatoes seasoned simply with black pepper, and served with a crunchy and juicy assortment of sautéed veggies. Soft butter and cream added to the potatoes gives it a fluffy texture and rich flavour. In fact, the veggies are also sautéed in butter, so you can sort of feel the buttery taste on your palate. The secret to the success of this recipe lies in mashing the potatoes right. You need to place the boiled potato in a strainer, lightly break it into small pieces, and then use a spoon to mash it through the strainer. Also make sure you serve it immediately to enjoy the perfect mouth-feel. Can be served as an accompaniment to a bowl of hot soup and toast . You can also try other interesting potato recipes like Greek Style Potatoes and Potato Rosti .
