Rajma is a rich, hearty, spicy, tangy quintessentially Indian Red Kidney bean recipe that is typically eaten with rice. The base is onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic and green chilies. It is slow cooked with spices like cinnamon, cloves, black pepper and cumin till the aroma wafts through the air and the beans are smooth and tender. It is perfect with a squeeze of lime and a sprinkling of chopped onions.
One of my favourite memories of drinking Mulled wine was at the Christmas markets in and around Frankfurt. Although it was bitterly cold there was a lovely smell of spicy warming, wine infused with the cinnamon and cloves. As well as other delicious foods that were being served at the markets.

This cake is a very fond memory of mine and it is also a local speciality from where I grew up, in the south west of Germany. I tried to translate its name „Kirschplotzer“ and I hope it conveys what it is: a juicy fruitiness combined with cloves and cinnamon that add a mysterious hint of christmas to the late spring season when cherries are abundant and everyone who owns a tree is trying to pack as many as possible into this wonderful recipe – I hope someone tries to bake it!
This quick version of the Vegetable Biryani although easy is bold and flavourful. It's lightly spiced with turmeric, cumin, coriander, garam masala and other warm spices.The vegetables in this Indian rice dish can be changed around - perhaps add bell peppers, potatoes or cauliflower. You can add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper for a kick if desired.
In my country, Argentina, South America, is startingto get cold. I love to home make chai tea on Mondays, to heat our bodies and souls the rest of the week. I boil 2 liters or water in a big pan, with cardamom, anise, cinnamon, clove, ginger, little black pepper, add some honey after I turn off the fire. This is a super food (beverage), used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries in India to preserve health, as a big source of antioxidants, and many other benefits for our bodies.
