In times of rationing my pantry, I came up with something I would like to share with you. I had some Meatzaa Chicken kababs in my freezer and a tomato gravy with garlic. I sliced an onion, sauteed it, added sliced kababs and cooked for five minutes. Then I added my tomato paste and garam masala powder. Covered and cooked for a while and added freshly crushed kasoori methi and some cream before finishing it.Add salt to taste.
I am sure you have heard a lot about Indian green chutney. This one is a bit different because I incorporated very tasty and healthy nuts in it. By adding nuts, the chutney gets a creamy texture. I generally make and keep this in the fridge for a week. If I keep it in the freezer, I add very hot oil to it and mix well before storing.
This comes handy in making fish preparations mostly in Bengali dishes.
This sauce comes in handy for many Italian preparations like Pizza spread, pasta , sphagetti and meat balls ,toasted bread pizza style etc. You can freeze half and keep the other half in the fridge to toss into a quick meal.
