Vegan Sun-dried Tomatoes & Cashew Dip

Did i told you that i have still some Italian sun-dried tomatoes i carried all the way from Sicile when went for our summer vacation a year back. Back home i have prepared an aromatic oil by heating olive oil along with sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary sprigs. After finishing the sun-dried tomatoes flavoured oil for flavouring pasta dishes and pizzas, those sun dried tomatoes were sitting sadly in the bottle to get finished. When i picked Dip for snacks as theme for this week's blogging marathon, i prepared everything to prepare some dip with those sun dried tomatoes along with a handful of cashews. For my surprise, this dip came out extremely delicious as much as like cashew butter flavored with tomatoes.

Curried Red Kidney Beans Dip/Curried Rajma Dip

You may wonder to read the name of my today's dish. Yes my today's post is Red kidney beans dip which makes an excellent,protein rich dip to serve with some store bought bread sticks or as a spread on grilled baguette slices. Very simple to make, this vegan and gluten free curried rajma dip calls for simple, easily available ingredients which makes an excellent nutritious dip. Rajma aka red kidney beans are tremendously healthy to add in our weekly diet atleast once a while. I do add them often in most of my dishes as this beans are my family favourite legumes as well. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Dips for snacks as theme, hence i dished out this simple, nutritious rajma dip for the theme.

Chilly Garlic Sauce/Chilli Garlic Chutney

Am sharing a simple, easy and definitely a flavourful sauce to serve along with some crispy fritters or chinese style rolls. If you are a spicy lover then trust me this absolutely mildly sweet, spicy and aromatic chutney aka sauce will definitely tickle your tastebuds. I have some hot sauce lovers at home, though myself and my younger one like to have some deep fried fritters with tomato ketchup, others at home just love chilly sauces to have with. I have been looking for a chance to make some garlic loaded chilly sauce just to please my spicy sauce lovers since a while. Finally when i picked Dips for snacks as theme for this week's blogging marathon, obviously i couldnt stop myself to gather all the ingredients to dish out some homemade chilly sauce.

Mini Vegetable Cheese Poppers

Kids are great fans of deep fried fritters, though being a health nut mom, am trying to keep ourselves away from deep frying. However deep fried fritters once a while, makes everyone happy at home. Though i usually goes for baked version, my younger one was asking for some cheesy balls since a while. Obviously i planned for a simple, yet dangerously addictive mixed vegetable and cheese poppers for our weekend snacks. These mini vegetables loaded cheese poppers are extremely addictive, easy to make and one of the best way to feed vegetables to the kids. I went for a lovely medley of grated vegetables, bread crumbs and mashed potato which i simply spiced with garam masala.
