Pi pirouettes to the Twist and Salsa.

Pi, who dances like magic,  teaches some easy steps to  us, the ones with two left feet in the kitchen.

1. Baby Carrots/Corns with a Roasted Twist:
——————————

A quick and healthy snack.

Ingredients:
Baby carrots or baby corns: as many as you want or
Coriander Powder
Roasted Cumin Powder (bhuna jeera, the one used in Raitas usually)

Olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Lime
Honey

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the baby carrots on a tray.
Brush olive oil.
Season with salt, pepper and paprika (or red chilli powder)
Roast it in the oven for 15-20 mins or till they look roasted
Once roasted pour lime juice for the tangy taste (you can skip this if you do not want the sour tinge), some honey (you can skip this if you don’t want the sweet tinge)
Sprinkle Coriander powder and Cumin Powder
Serve

2. Mango Salsa:

Ingredients:
Mango cubed (could be the sweet or sour mangoes) – 1
Jalapeno peppers (chopped) – 2-3 depending on how spicy you want it

  1. look great thanks. i like add extra garlic

  2. Vewy intewesting! Honey – how much do you usually use? tsp/tbsp/gallon…?

    Mo, I’m bored of tomato salsa. Unfortunately you get the most amazing mango and even peach salsa in TJ’s…so not much incentive to make it either.
