Namak Paare

Namak Pare नमक पारे is a savoury snack made at the time of festivals in India. Its very popular at the time of Deepawali and Holi too. Out of other little snacks I made this Diwali, I made these too and they are gone by now. I bought a bowl full for my Italian friends and they were gone like hot cakes. Its a very minimal ingredient recipe and it tastes great with a hot chai or even a glass of Wine like my friends did.

Hummus was the second dish which I cooked with Maria. It comes originally from Egypt but is widely eaten in Turkey, Israel or its wise to say throughout the Middle east.

It is high in protein and dietary fibre because of the Chic peas and Tahini (sesame paste) It is super simple to make and its really healthy and delicious. You can make it from the scratch by soaking the chic peas and cooking them or you could very well use a can (but trust me doing by scratch is worth it) It can be eaten in different ways too like a spread, a vegetable dip, as a condiment for the Falafel roll and it also makes a great picnic and lunch box meal.

Apple, Plum and Fig Chutney

This recipe needs very few ingredients and very little time too.

Here is what you will need:
