Mamma Mehta’s Channa Masala


We did not develop this recipe, but we have tried making it and can assure you that it was delicious! It was sent to our founder, Samantha, by her friend’s mother who we have been dubbed as ‘Mamma Mehta’. So all credits for this recipe go to her.

This channa masala is easy to make, takes just about 30mins to cook, and tastes absolutely delightful. It is both nutritious and comforting. As expected on this site, all the ingredients are easy to source at conventional supermarkets and at smaller international food shops.

Without further ado, here’s Mamma Mehta’s Channa Masala recipe!

Bon Appétit!

Bhojan kaa aanand lijiye!

Coconut Dhal with Flatbread


Dhal is the perfect comfort food for any time of the day. It is flavoursome, nutritious and, as we love to describe it, a hug in a bowl. It can be eaten with rice, but we prefer to eat it with freshly made flatbread.

The main ingredient in a bowl of dhal is lentils or split peas, those are basically what the term, “dhal” means. Split peas and lentils both contain good amounts of  protein, vitamin A, thiamin (vitamin B-1), riboflavin (vitamin B-2), niacin (vitamin B-4), pantothenic acid (vitamin-B-5), pyridoxamine (vitamin B-6), folate (vitamin B-9), cobalamin (vitamin B-12), choline, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, iron, magnesium, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, dietary fibre and omega fatty acids. These are only a few of the nutrients our coconut dhal contains. Their descriptions and benefits can be found in our Nutrient Index.

We hope you enjoy our dhal recipe.

Bon Appétit!
