Green Dove Chutney


This thick, green textured paste goes well on toast, enchiladas or with a fresh salad. It is full of minerals, natural fats and protein. Lovely for children.

3 tsp of coriander
1 cup of almond flakes
1 tsp hing
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp sweet chili powder
1/2 tsp anise
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water (add more if needed)

Radicchio & anise salad

Guava Chutney Delight


Guayaba Delight


Guayaba or guava is a tropical fruit rich in vitamin c, e and minerals. It has a distinctive earthy taste which makes this fruit suitable to accompany main dishes or to eat simply as a dessert. This sweet chutney has an exotic flavor, a great addition to breakfast or snacks.


Coconut rice (another)


This soft and sweet rice is a favorite in many Colombian homes. I have added cinnamon to give it more depth and flavor. It is excellent for the Pitta Dosha.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup grated coconut
2 tsp of coconut oil
2 tsp black mustard seeds
1 cup of basmati rice
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp pink salt
1 1/2 cups of water
