Express Cooking Round-Up Part 2

Let's take a break and have some dessert! After going through all these meal entries, don't you wish more of us had blogged easy desserts too? Despite my teasing, three brave bloggers have decided that its better to fill the stomach with dessert than no food! I agree wholeheartedly with them. If they can't have bread, let them eat cake!

Desserts:
Simply Spicy: Pal Payasam




Lazzat:Kesar Bhaat in Five




Curry Bazaar: Shahi Tukde





Pasta and Noodles:
To continue with the round up, Pasta and noodles are versatile and if your family likes it, they present a wholesome express meal. Keep it as simple as you like or make it elaborate with a cream sauce, but it still doesn't take up too much time.

The Spice Café: Pasta Aglio O Olio




Padma’s Kitchen: Express Pasta Meal




Food Matters: Lemon Thyme Spaghetti with Smoked Salmon




Kadchhi ke Kamaal: Pasta with Vegetarian Bolognese




Hunger Pangs: Pasta with Red Peppers and Feta Cheese




Curry Bazaar: Pasta in Tomato Sauce




Curry Bazaar: Chinese Hakka Noodles




Married To A Desi:Linguini With Spinach, Artichokes and Hearts




CrazyAboutFood: Cilantro Pesto Pasta




Sharpen Your Knife: Chopped Turkey With Tarragon Sauce




Cooking Pleasures: Whole Wheat Pasta




Chachi’s Kitchen: Noodles with Green Beans




Malabar Spices: Pasta With Meat Sauce




Roti Meals:
Some of the bloggers were experienced enough to create a Roti/Chappathi/Phulka (Call it whatever you want, its the Indian Tortilla)meal in the time specified. Some made it from scratch (wow!!!!) and some sensible ones made the side dish while the rotis defrosted!
So here are the Roti Recipes...


When My Soup Came Alive: Palak Dal With Fried Chappathis




Tried and Tested recipes: Mutter Paneer With Chappathi




Spicy Khana: Egg Curry With Chappathi




Soul Food:Sukhi Dal With Phulka And Salad




A Mad Tea Party:Rotis With Taro(Arbi)and Lentils.




Food-n-More: Mutter Paneer and Frozen Phulkas





Yum Blog: Rotis With Snake Gourd-Lentils Curry




Miscellaneous Dishes:
These could qualify as a heavy snack to tide over evening hunger pangs or as a light dinner for those days when you just need something fast but not too heavy.


What's For Lunch, Honey?: Garlic Shrimp on Toast




Sreelu’s Tasty Travels: Tomato Chaat




Out Of The Garden: Spinach Soup with Idli Croutons




Neivedyam: Nut Cutlet




Lemon And Chilies: Summer Salad




Kajal Dreams: Tricolored Sandwiches




Jugal Bandi:Bean-Nut Salad
