“I love the old standbys like samosas, butter chicken, and of course saag and maaki di roti. My ultimate comfort food for rainy days in Vancouver is rice and rajma dal – it is kind of like Indian soul food.”
Jasmine Gill – Vancouver, BC
“My favourite South Asian recipes are homemade yogurt and aloo paratha. I like to make them extra spicy with chopped onions, cilantro, and lots of butter. ”

“Both my mom and my mother-in-law are fabulous cooks. I am very fortunate to be surrounded by great food. My mom makes the best roasted aloo gobi di saabji and my mother in law’s homemade naan are simply sumptuous. I love when by chance they make both to be eaten at the same time. Divine!”

“Saag Chicken with whole-wheat rotis is a favorite of mine. The chicken is so moist and tender. My wife makes it very spicy, but I still love eating fresh whole chilies with it. ”
Jagpaul Badh – Surrey, BC
“Homemade Paneer that is fried with onions, chilies, and ginger. Sometimes I do it on the barbeque. I even make this for my office parties. My coworkers think it takes hours to make, but it really is very easy. I even fancy it up by using those party toothpicks.”
Sonny Kaur – Abbotsford, BC
“Indian food and recipes: It is so hard to narrow it down to one, but when I am homesick for India, I make a batch of gulab jaman – the outside is brown and sweet because of the syrup, but the inside has a slight saltiness. The two rasa tastes together are a perfect match and takes me back to my childhood.”
