The Mighty Little Lentil: Red Lentils, a Sula favorite

1 Pot Meals – huge fan, can’t say enough about them. There’s nothing more pleasing then getting all of your ‘nutritional requirements,’ or simply staving off hunger with something that fits in one pot.  Not that I’m discriminating against say 3 pot meals but for the added bonus of reheating everything the next day in just 1 pot—need I say more?! In search of that secret ingredient meets all nutritional requirements, or at least contributes to your protein, foliate, dietary […]

Kofta Dil Bahar: veggie dumplings bathed in iconic butter sauce

To follow up on my comment the other day about how it feels as though it’s not really Winter in Vancouver right now and how it should be Spring, I take it all back. I could complain about the lovely coolness we’re currently experiencing  but instead, I’m going to partake in an opportunity to warm up with some of Sula’s Kofta Dil Bahar. It’s a dish that I’ve haven’t tried yet (I tend to get slightly obsessed with a few […]

For the love of a caramelized onion: Sula’s Secrets

Despite how there’s no snow outside, it’s actually lovely out and how, sometimes, we can sneak out without a coat, it’s still technically Winter (I feel like I’ve made note of this before). That soup/stew/heavy-warm dish you look forward to around noon type season. Curry, is something I personally crave on a regular basis, regardless of the time of year. Usually, I obsessive over it when I’m out running, especially when it’s cold. I could go on and on about […]

Cilantro Soup Vancouver Sula Indian Restaurant

Just cause it’s wicked cold outside… Mulligatawny Soup Recipe

It’s funny how, myself included, people are taken aback by how incredibly cold it is outside.  The other day a friend of mine commented on how Chinese New Year is suppose to coincide with a swap in wardrobe for something less Winter like. Albeit, it’s still Winter here and elsewhere in the country,  so why are we completely confused by all of this? It’s beautiful out, so nice that bike ride seems in order especially if you’re bundled up finest […]

Christmas Gift Idea: Chai Spice Kits

Last year I decided to do something different for Christmas gifts, I put together bags full of homemade cookies, chocolates, spiced nuts, chai spice kits and gift cards to some of my favourite restaurants. Figured that a culinary gift pack would be well received amongst my family and friends. So, this year as I scramble around and try to top last year’s gift, I figured I might as well share the chai recipe I used just in case you (as […]

Vancouver Sula Indian Restaurant Cinnamon

Cinnamon is not just for buns…

Often when I think of cinnamon, I think about cinnamon buns, the ones with thick cream cheese icing.  It’s perhaps unfortunate that such a versatile spice is associated with a sweet, sticky and a relatively unhealthy healthy snack (although I must admit it’s one of my faves). In Indian cuisine, cinnamon is used everywhere. As it should be, the spice works well with salty and sweet.  At Sula Indian Restaurant, cinnamon is a staple in several different dishes; it’s also […]
