T&T: Achari Baingan & TofuPilaf

"I love her blog. She has been a wonderful source of inspiration for many bloggers like me and the best part is, all her recipes are 100% fool-proof! I must have prepared more than a dozen recipes (before and after starting my own blog!) and every time I ended up with a yummy plate of delectable food!"

...and she is none other than lovely Nupur of 'One Hot Stove'!

I was thrilled when Zlamushka has chosen 'Nupur's blog' for her 'Tried & Tasted' event this month. I dugged into my prospicient list of bookmarks.. and chose to make two of her scrumptious dishes!

I already sent 'Aloo Posto' as my first entry and now I am back with - 'Achari Baingan' and 'Tofu Pilaf'..:)

Recipe 1: Achari Baingan: the very idea of stuffing cooked onion masala into big, Chinese Eggplants is so cool! I loved preparing this Rajasthani delicacy and was soundly enjoyed by all! the only variation is - Nupur stuffed in the onion masala into the big whole eggplants. I diced them into 2-3 pieces, slit them and then stuffed in the masala, just to make it more manageable.

Recipe 2: Tofu Pilaf: the original recipe calls for 'Paneer' . to have a vegan version of the same, I used some extra firm cubes of 'Tofu'. It was so delicious that the entire pot was finished within minutes! Yohoo!


Thanks Nupur for such yummy recipes and I end up tasting some new flavors every single time!
