Veggie Bhaji

Celebrate Diwali with this vegetable bhaji  — it’s fireworks-bright, with just a bit of chili providing a small, pleasant explosion in the mouth. With a food processor, it’s a breeze to make.

Warm, creamy, and comforting, it’s the perfect dessert to ward off those autumn chills while celebrating the season’s bounty. It’s a snap to customize […]
