Gochujang chicken wings

Korean food is like nothing else I have had. Delicious and rich in umami. Lots of greens, meat, rice, spices – there is so much to try and love. Beyond kimchi 🙂

It is still fairly new to India, has probably come to the fore in the last 5-6 years. Even then it is significantly under represented in terms of the number of restaurants it has.

I first had Korean food in Delhi and have since had it in Bangalore and London. Bangalore has some really authentic restaurants which also sell Korean food ingredients, which are hard to find otherwise.

I am always looking for recipes that I could make at home to add some variety to regular home cooking. These gochujang chicken wings from Richa’s blog seemed like a great way to bring a little korean love into our food. They are super easy to make and taste heavenly.

Peanut Chaat

Peanuts are the best bar food, don’t you think? Every bar/restaurant either gives you some for free with your beer or has some options for nibbles that you can order with your drinks. They are easy to snack on, packed with flavour and balance out all the drinking you’re doing (kinda :)). Salted, fried, spiced – they all taste great! My favourite are the ones that are boiled and then made into a chaat – best texture and flavour combo for peanuts!

Chatpata Paneer

Paneer is one of those things which taste pretty good raw as well – just slice some and eat. It is ,after all, cottage ‘cheese’ 🙂

One of those times of nibbling on paneer, while it was being prepped for a meal, I added a little masala to it to boost the flavour. Was so yum! That made me think that this could be made even better with a little pan time. A little crispiness maybe? The chatpata paneer was thus born 🙂
