If you're familiar with the cuisine of Middle-East, you're probably already an admirer of this hugely popular snack. These deep fried balls are made with chickpeas flavored with select herbs and spices. The preparation process is very simple yet the taste is very tempting. It is generally served with tahini sauce though you may use a local sauce variant of your choice. Do not use canned beans else these fritters will get soggy and may break while frying. My Indian neighbors prefer it with classic mint chutney. Use canola or grapeseed oil for frying these delicious balls. The consistency of pulsed chickpea paste dictates how good texture your falafel balls will get. Let's make this delicious recipe.

Let's make some cookies which can be easily stored for up to 2 weeks. I've used dried cranberries and macadamia nuts to flavor them. One can also use almonds if macadamia nuts are not available. I've kept the cookie dough slightly firmer than normal because I'm using cookie cutter frames to settle them down in a refrigerator before baking. You can use the regular way of dropping spoonfuls of lighter dough base on a baking sheet. Do not hesitate in adding your favorite chocolate chips in these cookies. Cookies bake quite fast so pay attention on the time to get the best results. So, prepare your oven to quickly make these light and mouth-watering cranberry cookies for loved ones and friends.

Trouts taste great when baked or grilled with select herbs and spices. There are several varieties of trout so use the best one available in your locality. Make sure you keep the proportion of butter and seasoning ingredients intact as mentioned below. You can also add baby potatoes, tender spinach leaves and bell peppers to the baking dish. Although butter is one of the primary flavoring agents in this recipe, you can replace it with olive oil. I've kept the head and tail intact which can be removed if preferred. Similarly, you can also opt for a coal fire grilled version, instead of baking it in an oven. So, get your oven ready to make this delicious, light and mouth-watering baked trout preparation.

Let's make this delicious protein rich grilled tofu recipe which is flavored with sharp and pungent hoisin sauce. If you already have the sauce ready in your kitchen, the remaining process is dead simple. Use extra firm (well pressed) tofu to get the best results. It can be used both as a starter as well as a main course entry. Believe it or not, but I prefer to relish it with brown rice. I've grilled it for a slightly lesser time than normal though you are free to elongate the grilling period. If a regular grill is not available, you use a nonstick grill pan for the same. One can also thread marinated tofu cubes in skewers before grilling. Let's make this mouth-watering grilled tofu preparation in a few easy steps.

Let's make a popular and delicious Greek recipe one can easily prepare at home. We've used both chicken and lamb chunks for the piping hot Souvlaki preparation. Traditionally, it is served wrapped in pita bread with tzatziki sauce. Spice quotient can be easily moderated as per your preferences.
