Cucumber, Capsicum and Celery Salad, is a delightful combination of fresh vegetables, fruits and curds which makes this salad hard to resist. The low-fat curd dressing is delicately flavoured with basil and mustard powder. The fruits, vegetables and low-fat curds have few calories, but contains a lot of fibre. Such salads should be had before a meal as they are filling, to avoid overeating during the other courses that follow.

The Schezuan Sauce is a must-have in the Chinese food lover’s kitchen. It is one of the most popular Oriental accompaniments, and can be served with any Chinese starter or main course. It is quite spicy, and is also often used in the preparation of Chinese and Indo-Chinese fusion dishes, including several noodles recipes, rolls and wraps. It can be made and stored in the freezer in an airtight container for a month. Although it is readily available in shops, a fresh homemade sauce always has a more vibrant taste. You can use it to make tongue-tickling recipes like the Paneer and Spring Onions in Schezuan Sauce or Schezuan Chopsuey Dosa.
