Barbecue Vegetable Skewers

My love for vegetables is never-ending and this barbecue recipe has doubled it. Hi all, being super busy these days I am here with a big off and a little on. But I am really glad that we are still connected!! Having fun filled weekends with family is a celebration in itself and barbecuing together is a great way to celebrate!! This recipe is soo good that I could not click a good shot of it! The moment I get ready with the camera, I find an empty plate....haha!! Anyways, hope you will like the recipe too and will always cook the natural way!!

Chana-Coconut Rice

A tempting rice dish on the dinning table is a cherished attraction, isn't it? We don't eat rice much, so this is the reason why I try to be experimental with rice recipes, whenever I cook them. This recipe has kala chana (skinned black bengal gram), which is a powerful food with low-fat calories!! Chana is a very good source of fibres. It is also rich in potassium, sodium, protien and iron. It is heart-healthy, helps you stay energetic and also to maintain weight. A cup of boiled chana on a salad or added to soups or mixed in with vegetables or meats, will be a plus to healthy eating.
This rice recipe is easy but not quick (specially if using homemade coconut milk), still worth the efforts. This can be eaten with or without any curry dish. You can use store-bought coconut milk but homemade is always the best. So try this recipe someday and cook the natural way!!! Hope you like it!!!!

Capsicum Pesto Pasta (Vegan)

I love capsicums aka bell peppers (You know it), I love tomatoes, I love pasta and so I love this pasta recipe!!! This recipe has a light vegetable base sauce and a good break from buttery and cheesy pasta. It is totally VEGAN. Even a great way to add capsicum in you kid's diet. Trust me I tried it on a picky eater and it really worked. I know when my dear friend read this, she will surely be giggling....haha!! Well, I tried this recipe with cashewnuts first, but somehow it was not satisfactory (it was too creamy for this recipe). Later I used peanuts and voilĂ was soo good!! I found the exact combination I was looking for! It is always better to create healthy pasta sauce rather than using store-bought same old sauces. So try this pasta recipe and always cook the natural way!! Hope you like it!!!!
