My Spice Rack: The crucial ingredients that Gujarati food is made of!

Good day Gujarati Food Made Easy lovers!

Today I will introduce you to the Gujarati Spice Rack...

It has come to my attention that some of the spices that I am using to cook the Gujarati dishes with are not 'run of the mill' for everyone. In many respects, maybe this should have been the first blog post I should have written however, here I am now, looking back with hindsight, through those rose coloured spectacles ... you get the picture!

Turmeric: one of the most famous spices associated with Indian cooking...

Pictured below would be all of the spices that you would see in any traditional Gujarati kitchen, so the more you have, the better I say!

Bataka Poha/Powa Recipe - A very Gujarati breakfast!

Dear Gujarati Food Made Easy lovers!

This week's recipe is Bataka/Bateta Poha/Powa also known as Potatoes with Flattened Rice.

Here is a picture of the end result:
(serves 2)

As the New Year starts with dreams of great things to come, every day starts (for me at least) with a great breakfast to savour. The recipe I will be giving you today is one that you will either love or hate when you try it; however, in Gujarat and across a large part of India, Bataka/Bateta Poha/Powa (potatoes with flattened rice) is a dish that is loved by many.
