Meatball gravy with achari spices

You may use fresh homemade meatballs or frozen ones for this recipe.

1 packet frozen meatballs
1 onion - diced
5 big garlic cloves, minced
Thai chilis -halved 5-7
Achari spice
Nutmeg powder
1 tbsp Sour cream
Chicken broth


  1. Heat frozen meatballs in a pan until thawed. Add diced onions, green chilies and minced garlic. Add chicken broth, achari spice and a pinch of nutmeg (my secret ingredient).
  2. Bring it to boil.Add  1 tbsp sour cream. Mix well with the gravy. Add more chicken broth if needed. Serve hot.

Brussel sprouts with salt and pepper

Roasting some brussel sprouts with olive oil, salt and pepper (you may add bacon). Winter is a good time to use the oven. The warmth from the fire is an added bonus.

I had them with meatball gravy with achari spices.

Pressure cooker pot roast

You may choose to slow cook and go the traditional way. I sauted the ingredients with a little wine and pressure cooked it to perfection. This is similar to one of my lamb recipes, but I use minced ginger and jalapenos with the lamb.

Olive oil  2 tbsp
Butter 1 tsp
1 lb beef stew cut (you may use other cuts of meat if you don't eat beef)
Whole garlic cloves- 5 big
Red potatoes, quartered 2
Celery stalks, chopped
Baby carrots 8-10
Peppercorn 1/2 tsp
Coriander seeds 1 tsp
Nutmeg powder 1/8 tsp
Two sprigs of fresh rosemary
Red wine, a dash

Water for gravy- warm, 2 cups


  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a pressure cooker. Add the meat, sprinkle liberally with salt and crushed pepper. Add the peppercorn, coriander seeds and sprinkle nutmeg powder. Cook the meat on both sides. Apply the dry ingredients equally on both sides.
  2. Add whole garlic cloves, quartered red onions, quartered red potatoes, celery, and baby carrots.
  3. The kitchen should smell of pot roast by now. Add rosemary sprigs and a dash of red wine. Cook further.
  4. Add 2 cups of warm water and pressure cook it till the meat is tender. Serve hot.
