Sula Indian Restaurant’s Meatless Monday Recipe: Bhaigan Bharta

Another Meatless Monday is upon us. At Sula, our kitchen gets going early endless amounts of vegetables are cut, we caramelize what seems like a ton of onions (caramelized onions are key to all curries) and prep the spices that make the chai perfect. The prep that goes into curries like Bhaigan Bharta is no different. But the end result, is completely worth it. As part of our Meatless Monday series, we’d like to share with you a recipe for Bhaigan […]

Sula Indian Restaurant’s Meatless Monday Recipe: Dal Shorba

Whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, straight up carnivore, or an all round connoisseur, there’s something intriguing about Meatless Monday. Originally, Meatless Monday, began in World War I as part of the war effort and now it’s being revived by organizations like Earthsave Canada in an effort to spread awareness about sustainability. Meatless Monday has once again caught on. With Indian cuisine, for example, going meatless is easy. Often, what makes a curry, rice preparation, soup, or speciality dish amazing has nothing to do with […]

In just a few days Fall 2013 will officially begin.

Labor Day weekend, for example, is the last opportunity to run off on an impromptu beach/fishing/camping/”insert your favorite outdoor activity” getaway. […]

Basmati Rice: Sula Indian Restaurant Home Cookin’ Recipe + Tips Series

Rice, like pasta, is one of those items that seems as if it’s incredibly easy to put together but doesn’t always work out. Often it’s just a few really simple moves that can ‘make or break’ it. As food lovers, and restaurateurs, we’re the first to say that it is just as important to make sure that the basics (rice, naan, even chai) are made right. There’s nothing worse than hosting a fabulous dinner party and having clumpy rice, burnt […]

Easy Mango Chutney at Home – Sula Indian Restaurant

There’s something about being able to just dip. If you’re a parent, dips are the perfect bribe when it comes to getting your kids to eat. Ketchup, mustard, relish, all trusted standbys. There’s also soy sauce, wasabi, anything with red chilli mixed in, salsa, butter’n’onions, or that orangey-spicy fake cheese that could be toxic but is secretly amazing—just to name a few amongst thousands. When it comes to Indian cuisine, raita, tamarind, and chutney are some of the standards. Chutney, […]

Vancouver loves Dosas

Had a dosa lately? This Vancouver favorite is actually a popular South Indian breakfast dish. If you head down to the southern part of India your meal will likely consist of rice, coconut, or both. Rice is the staple the south as coconut is grown in absolute abundance along the coast. In Southern India the morning aromas will be that of pancakes but not the kind with maple syrup, but the other kind made with rice. ‘Rice Pancakes’ are called […]

Breakfast Cravings, try something North Indian Vancouver

To continue on with the whole notion of breakfast goodness, we’d like to point out that North Indian breakfast’s tend to be a bit more hearty (perhaps less healthy in comparison to South Indian breakfasts). The reason, loads of milk, ghee (clarified butter), yoghurt and paneer (cottage cheese) along with nuts, fruits and vegetables are included in almost every dish. A major staple in North Indian dishes is wheat because it’s grown in abundance and it’s a major preference over […]
