दाल रोटी चावल सदियों से नारी ने इसे पका पका कर राज्य किया हैं , दिलो पर , घरो पर। आज नारी बहुत आगे जा रही हैं सब विधाओं मे पर इसका मतलब ये नहीं हैं कि वो अपना राज पाट त्याग कर कुछ हासिल करना चाहती हैं। रसोई की मिलकियत पर से हम अपना हक़ तो नहीं छोडेगे पर इस राज पाट का कुछ हिस्सा पुरुषो ने होटल और कुछ घरो मे भी ले लिया हैं।

हम जहाँ जहाँ ये वहाँ वहाँ

Vegan Gefilte "Fish"
Serves 5

It takes some planning to assemble this dish, since the nuts need to
soak for at least 6 hours before preparing the recipe.

1/2 cup whole unroasted cashews, pre-soaked
1/2 cup whole unroasted almonds, pre-soaked
1/2cup whole pine nuts, pre-soaked
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup lemon juice; a bit more can be used, if a lot of
tang is desired
1 cup cold vegetable broth; entire amount may not be
needed
1/2 cup finely minced green onions. both white and green
1/4 cup minced parsley
1/4 cup minced fresh dill
1 Tablespoon ground dried nori or kelp powder
1 Tablespoon Braggs Liquid Aminos or soy sauce

Place the cashews, almonds, pine nuts, and garlic in the canister
of a food processor. Process mixture until very smooth; then place
mixture into a bowl. Add lemon juice and mix to combine. Add just
enough vegetable broth to create a paste that can be molded into
shape. Add onions, parsley, dill, nori or kelp powder, and Braggs
Liquid Aminos.

Form into balls or patties, as desired. Cover and refrigerate for at
least 3 hours. Serve on a bed of lettuce and garnish with grated
horseradish, if desired.

Note: If you can't find ground nori or kelp powder, you can purchase
sushi wrappers, which are sheets of dried nori. Grind the nori
sheets by hand, or in a spice grinder. The nori or kelp helps to
impart a fish flavor. If you cannot find either one, mix in
approximately 2 Tablespoons of prepared jarred horseradish,
which will impart a traditional flavor.

VEGAN "FISH" FILLETS
Makes about 8 fillets; each fillet is about 2 ounces

1 pound medium-firm or silken tofu, cut into 8 equally-
sized slices
1 cup cold water
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons dried kelp powder or ground nori
1 teaspoon dried parsley
2 cups smashed cornflakes, crisped rice, or plain
unsweetened cold cereal of your choice
1 cup whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil spray

Place tofu slices separately on a large plate. Set aside. In a
shallow bowl, for the tofu, whisk together
water, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, kelp or nori powder, and
parsley. Gently arrange tofu in a single layer in this dish. Let
marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight. Turn
at least twice.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with oil. To
assemble your fillets, pour smashed cereal onto one dinner plate and
the flour onto another plate. If there is any liquid left with the
tofu, drain, and discard. Gently dredge each piece of tofu first
in the flour, then in the cereal, brushing off any excess crumbs
(avoid a thick coating). Place each coated tofu piece on the cookie
sheet. Place sheet in oven and bake for 5 minutes or until just
turning golden, turning once.Remove from oven and place on serving
dish. Serve hot, or store fillets covered in the refrigerator until
ready to serve.
