Comment on Tofu Makhani by Bay teuil pandan Thu, 18 Dec 2014 22:58:30 +0000 Thank you so much Vaishali for sharing this recipe! It’s such a refined dish that I consider it as a special treat for grand occasions. Then, I plan to cook it for Xmas. Ok, I admit I’m also keen to educate my French-conservative-meat eaters in-laws with delicious vegan, Indian cuisine :-p
My mom didnt know about methi and she fell in love with it :) I cant believe I taught her something when it comes to food!

My very slight tweaks to your recipe:

1. I’d par-boil the tomatoes -note the plural because the prep being quite involving, I’d always double the amount of ingredients- and then, remove the skin. I always take this step, whenever I’m cooking your tomato curry (my hubby’s all time fav!) or an Italian pasta sauce. Thats because tomato skin tends to lend an exaggerated sourish flavour to slow cooking dishes. Btw, I learnt that trick from you hehehe

2. Jaggery being hard to find in my area, I sub with Thai palm sugar (nam tan kathi) to taste

3. I feel more comfortable with using whole spices only and prep them apart: ie., dry roasting them and pounding them in granit mortar beforehand

4. Tofu would be rubbed and marinated overnight before being oven-baked, instead of sautéed.

Thanks again for educating us with your blog Vaishali!

Comment on Vegan Gumbo, Fat-Free and Gluten-Free by Vaishali Honawar Thu, 18 Dec 2014 18:06:14 +0000 You can buy chipotle chilies in adobo sauce at any supermarket– it’s usually sold in a tiny can in the international foods aisle. You can store the leftover chilies and their sauce in an airtight box in the refrigerator. The adobo sauce is very flavorful but it’s also very spicy, so use it with caution.

Comment on Vegan Gumbo, Fat-Free and Gluten-Free by Patricia Thu, 18 Dec 2014 17:06:04 +0000 What is adobo sauce? I did not see it explained in the Vegan Gumbo recipe.

Comment on Mango Waffles, Gluten-Free by Vaishali Honawar Thu, 18 Dec 2014 16:25:59 +0000 You can replace all of the gluten-free flours with all purpose– use the same amounts. I would recommend keeping the cornmeal because it adds great texture. And the flaxmeal helps the waffles bind, although in this case the mango puree would also act as a binder, so you can leave it out. Add a little moisture– like almond milk or soy milk or water– if the batter is too dry.

Comment on Mango Waffles, Gluten-Free by Clarice Thu, 18 Dec 2014 15:40:25 +0000 Thanks. I want to use regular all-purpose flour for this recipe. Which of the flours should I omit in this recipe? Is the flax meal related to gluten-free purpose?
