Tender Garlic Scapes and Millet Flour Crumble

farmers market finds

 

Summer is in full swing, the farmers markets are buzzing and garlic scapes are plenty!  An overdose of garlic scapes seemed possible in my realm of things but alas I warn you it was not.  Even after two weeks of continuous garlic escapades, I can’t seem to get enough of these very fragrant and pungent  herbs.  Wait a minute, did I say herb.  Is it a herb or is it a vegetable I ask?

Moongh Daar – Mung Dhal Curry (Split Green Lentils Curry)

My Recipe

IMG_7692

Moongh Dhar Curry is absolutely delicious eaten as a main course, especially on a blustery cold winter day.  Therefore, recently I have been making it pretty often .  This lentil curry can be eaten with rice or with warm rotis accompanied by a green chilli pickle called Raito.  This will probably the fastest curry you will ever make, perfect for a weeknight!  As long as you’ve made your rotis for the week you are set, I promise.  Out of roti’s for the week?   No problem, spread whole wheat toast (or toast of your choice) with ghee or butter, preferably ghee, then pile on the Moongh Daar and devour!  It’s purely addictive.  Try it out and taste it for yourself, you will not be disappointed 🙂

Oats Porridge – Cooked Oatmeal

My Grandmother’s Recipe
 

The leaves are changing from emerald green they once were in summer to the most beautiful hues of fall.  The golden yellows, chili pepper reds and sunset orange leaves blowing in the cool wind make me yearn for the comforting foods of my childhood.  What shall it be – warm chicken soup, or perfectly scrambled eggs smothered in ghee, chicken potpie or just a good old bowl of oats porridge.  Porridge has been my pick more often than once, so I thought I’d share it with you.  It’s so quick to make and it definitely “hits the spot”.  It’s warm, velvety, creamy texture with hints of ghee is just perfect for a day like this.  So don’t blame me when you grab a warm cozy blanket, curl up and maybe take a little snooze to the sound of the rustling fall leaves outside your window.
