Vegan Harvest Pizza

A couple of weeks ago my son wanted to eat Pizza. I love pizza, but I just can't make it.

Fortunately we got Frozen  Vegan Harvest  in Whole Foods. I had to just bake the frozen pizza in the oven for 7 to 8 minutes, and the lovely pizza was ready. Everyone in my family loved the pizza. My son told me that he wants to eat the pizza once in a week. Since we go to Whole Foods, once in a month, I'm planning to stock up my freezer with many Vegan Harvest Pizza.

Vegan Parathas (Indian Bread)

I love Parathas . These days I make Aloo parathas (Potato Parathas), Methi Parathas(Fenugreek Parathas), or Pudina Parathas(Mint Parathas), for my son's lunch- box .

The first time I made Aloo parathas, it was a mess. The potato filling came out while I was rolling the parathas. Last week, I made good  Aloo parathas , after following the recipe in the blog, CookingandMe.  Cooking and me
is an awesome blog for Indian cuisine. Nags, who works for Google, and is based in Sydney , makes yummy food. I 'm so glad she blogs. You can find many vegan recipes in the blog - Cooking and Me .

Aloo Parathas are so tasty. I like to eat  hot Aloo Parathas with a dollop of Earth Balance (vegan butter) and maple syrup. Sometimes I like to relish Aloo Parathas with lime pickle or tomato chutney. My son likes to eat plain Aloo Parathas .

Vegan Wedding in India

I recently read an amazing article in Hindu newspaper, where a Hindu wedding menu was vegan!
The article is , The Unusual Feast published on February 13, 2014. I'm unable to link the article , so just go to google and type, "Hindu newspaper vegan wedding" .  I hope you read it!

I'm confident in future, the number of people opting for vegan wedding will increase by many folds in India, as many people see "horrible suffering" of cows in Youtube. Even in Indian villages farmers induce cows with oxytocin harmone to produce more milk.

Usually , milk and milk products such as curds, paneer and ghee is used in the making of some indian dishes and sweets.

Nearly a decade ago I got married in Bangalore. Almost 95% of the food was vegan. The food was traditional South-Indian . For breakfast there was idli , sambhar ,Pongal , Uddina Vada and chutney. For the lunch - Kosambri, Beans palya, Vegetable Puloa, Vegetable saagu , White rice, Sambhar, Rasam, Pickle, Papad, Ladoo and Chiroti. For the reception - Bisibele bath, Bondas, Badhusha , and ice cream.
