Rajma Chawal is one of the most comforting you can have. There’s something about eating Rajma thats freshly done ‘right-off-the-stove’; it’s purely soul satisfying. And I’m not exaggerating when I say that good Rajma can really uplift my mood. But its true that good Rajma takes time to cook. It tastes best when ingredients are allowed their individual cooking time. At least that’s how my Punjabi best friend taught me to make the real Punjabi style Rajma!

However, the slow cooking method can definitely take a lot of time. And for working days, while you may crave Rajma, it’s not always possible to spend that kind of time in the kitchen. So this recipe is for those kind of days when you need some comfort food with minimal time involved. Also, it used just 1 pressure cooker so there isn’t much to clean too!

The only effort in this recipe is chopping. Everything else just falls in place. And this Rajma has that nice homestyle, slightly tangy feel and it also doesn’t leave you feeling heavy and sleepy. So personally, this recipe really works!

Do try out this quick Rajma recipe and let me know how it works for you. I’d love to know if you have any quick cooking hacks. So definitely leave them in the comments below.

Mumbai Style Bhel Puri Recipe

Bhel puri
Bhel Puri is a dish loved by people across ages. It’s probable something that I tried at a very young age and haven’t been able to stop loving ever since.

Almost every Indian city has their own version of Bhel Puri and so does Mumbai. Mumbai style Bhel is filled with the most yummiest chutneys, raw mango or kairi and some peanuts and spicy chana dal.

Watch the full recipe of this delicious street style dish below and try it at home.

For me Bhel Puri works as a snack and as a meal. It’s one of those dishes that is so versatile that it can literally be enjoyed any time of the day and also across seasons. A lot of people also like to eat a healthier version of this Bhel – one with pomegranate seeds, sprouts, cucumbers etc. But for me Bhel is something best enjoyed with all the sev and chutneys.

All of us have that one Bhel wala uncle near our house/work/college that satiates our cravings like no other. I remember having Pande ki Bhel, a vendor close to where I stayed in Mumbai. He would come every evening and I fondly remember enjoying this Bhel puri quite often.

In Mumbai, Chowpatty is known to have some good street food options, including Bhel. Watch this video from my evening at Chowpatty to know the best stalls for chaat, pav bhaji and more.

Hope you try out this Bhel puri recipe and also my Chowpatty food recommendations. You can subscribe to my Youtube channel here and stay tuned for more videos.

Diwali is also incomplete without Chakli. I have memories attached to eating Chakli with all possible meals during Diwali and this is why I decided to film my mother’s special Chakli recipe. Take a look – these Chaklis turn out really crunchy!
