Welcome to my kitchen

I have been a General Practitioner in London for over 12 years.  I work with families and children and see a need for family friendly food that is easy to make and enjoyable to eat by the whole family. I often meet parents who struggle to encourage their children to eat nutritious meals or to find the time to make healthy meals at home. They often find themselves cooking separate meals for their children or using readymade meals. I want to empower these families to cook together and make quick, easy, cheap and healthy recipes at home the whole family can enjoy.

Instagram post 18043599913287495 SWEETCORN EGG DROP SOUP

Another quick and easy lunch idea today for soup season!  Served with a drizzle of crispy chilli oil for me (I am totally addicted to the stuff 😍) 
This soup can be easily adapted to make it vegan by leaving the egg out or substituting it with some soft tofu
I made this without measuring anything today but if you would like the recipe let me know & I’ll definitely make it again & share it here 🤗
Chintal x
P.S. this is totally weaning/child friendly without the chilli oil x

Instagram post 18089201332237435 ALMOND BERRY BANANA CAKE 🎂

Because banana bread is soooo last lockdown 💁🏻‍♀️
So Fridays used to be my day off from work to have some ‘me time’ (aka squeeze in a workout, do housework & catch up on life admin 😂). However, today, it was mummy’s home economics lesson & this is the result! 

A delicious almond & oat flour banana & berry bake 😍. Serving suggestion: warm with vanilla custard or ice cream!  Recipe video by my 8 year old in stories 🥰

The lesson we learnt today: If you put butter in the microwave to melt, you may be so distracted by your 8 year olds questions that you actually forget to take it out to put into the bake itself 🤦🏻‍♀️
But don’t worry it still worked & tasted delicious so you can find this butter free recipe in my stories & I’ll save it to highlights 🥰

Who fancies giving this a try over the weekend?
Happy Friday! ❤️

Instagram post 17916780622547503 🍜 MISO NOODLE POTS 🍜 .

If like me, you are finding yourself making 123586483 meals a day... here is a quick & easy lunch idea the whole family will love.  Demonstrated by mini me 👦🏻🥰

It’s the easiest recipe to prep the night before & you can throw in lots of fresh veggies...or anything you have left over from your evening meal... we used rice noodles, spinach, edamame, mushrooms, spring onions, coriander chilli & tofu.  But you could also add cooked prawns, chicken or any other vegetables.  In fact, I made peanut butter chicken version (you can find it further down my page) and it was so good!  All you need to do is pour in boiling water when you’re ready to eat 😋

Your very own pot noodle 🍜
Recipe in the video - I recommend sound on 🎤🥰
Chintal x

Edit: lots of questions in DMs about which miso I used - I used @clearspringuk barley miso - they have sachets which are handy for on the go or you can buy unpasteurised in a jar.  If making this ahead of time - put all the WET INGREDIENTS AT THE BOTTOM & dry noodles on top so it can be kept ready.  When you want to use eat - just add boiling water 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Leftover mincemeat or fruit?  I’ve got you covered with a delicious way to use it up because I’m all about #zerowaste
(and if, like me, you don’t like mincemeat - use candied Orange or lemon peel 🍊🍋)

This @bbcgoodfood crinkle cookie recipe is always on repeat in our house - so quick & easy  my boys can make it themselves.  The candied fruit takes it to the next level I made a few batches to give as edible gifts to neighbours 🎁
Wishing you all a healthy happy Christmas break 🙏🏽❤️

Instagram post 17854014101376778 It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas 🎄 🎶....
A little throwback to my Christmas tree canapés from last year...
Sooooooo easy to whip up in minutes
I know we won’t be having the same celebrations this year but I’m still making these little 🎄
Can I tempt you to try them?

RECIPE:
.
.
Cucumber slices 🥒 
Cream cheese 🧀 
Smoked salmon 
Cucumber thinly peeled on its side 🥒 
Pomegranate seed 💎 🌱 Vegan? I’ve got you covered - use roasted pepper and cashew cream cheese 🌱 
Literally layer the above as seen in the picture and you are ready to go!
To make the tree - peel layers of cucumber, fold to make the ‘tree’ and poke with a cocktail stick to keep everything in place! 
I used the citrus 🍊 smoked salmon from @waitroseanspartnerspr which has this beautiful edible gold glitter but you can use any smoked salmon ❤️
Enjoy!

Instagram post 17854269989330376 GUEST POST FROM MY BOYS 👦🏽👦🏽

Hi everyone, Thank you for reading 🤗. We are 2 boys who love to cook.  We know how this year has been hard for so many people.  Also charities that can help people are finding it hard too.  We wanted to try to help raise money for some of these charities.  We usually donate food at school in our harvest festivals, but we wanted to do more to help.  So, during our half term holiday, we decided to write a charity cookbook of our favourite recipes 🍪🎂🍝🥘. 

You can get our e-cookbook for... wait for it... any donation!  Any donation big or small helps and would mean so much to us and the charities.  ALL your donation will be split between @switchback_ldn & @cardinalhumecentre To donate & download your copy.... click on the link in our mum’s bio! We hope you enjoy cooking the recipes.  They are all easy recipes that we like to make (and eat 😋). Hopefully you can make them too!  You might need a little help from an adult if you haven’t cooked before.
If you make the recipes please send us a photo - we would love to see it! 
Thank you everyone 😁

Instagram post 17928020821452706 EASY YUMMY SPAGHETTI 
 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
After 3 days of absolute feasting and LOTS of Indian food... I was craving something very different today... So I whipped up this easy peasy spinach and cherry tomato prawns spaghetti with creamy pesto.  I didn’t have any prawns so swapped them for a tin of butter beans (delicious for a vegan option 👌🏽) 

True story: my kids are the biggest Harry Potter fans & think that butter beer is made from butter beans - I haven’t corrected them 😉 
Hope you're all having a great week so far,
Chintal x

Recipe:

In the video but if you prefer a written version - save this post and let me know - i’ll add it here too 🙃

You can use shop bought pesto (I always have a jar as a back up) or i’ll tag my homemade pesto recipe in stories

Instagram post 17845607705423687 LENTIL BOLOGNESE & STORE CUPBOARD RECIPES UNDER 50p 
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we enter a 1 month lockdown again in England, I thought it would be helpful to share a charity ebook I wrote last year for an amazing charity @be.enriched featuring this recipe - lentil bolognese as well as many other balanced, quick & easy recipes all for under 50p per portion.
⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I’ve written the recipes so that most of the ingredients are store cupboard staples or items you can pick up at a locally so if you’re self-isolating or can’t get to the shops easily, I hope it helps you to make easy healthy meals at home. 
⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be-enriched helps to connect communities,  through food, via their community canteens. 
I volunteer in their canteens and it’s wonderful to see people from all walks of life coming together to enjoy a delicious meal together. 
For some that I have spoken to, this is their only social contact for the week ❤️⠀
I have demonstrated the recipes from the booklet at the Be Enriched canteens and its been wonderful to have feedback from those who have tried cooking them at home. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
You can pick up the recipe booklet for free at any of the community canteens - when they open again.  Perhaps give it to someone who may benefit from it.  You can also download it from the link in my bio for a 99p donation to @be.enriched 
If you don’t feel able to donate at the moment, please do email me via the link - I will happily send you a copy for free.

Keep safe & well everyone,

4 tablespoons yogurt

Instagram post 17856886370242098 HELLO 👋🏽
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don’t think I’ve ever actually introduced myself properly on here so I thought I would introduce the person behind @drchintalskitchen
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m Chintal... I am a NHS Doctor 👩🏻‍⚕️ - a GP in London, a wife & a Mum of 2 gorgeous boys aged 10 & 8.  I absolutely LOVE cooking and writing... it’s always been a lifelong dream of mine to write a cookbook & share my love of cooking 📚 
So instead... I decided to start my virtual cookbook via my blog www.drchintalskitchen.com
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is important to me that my boys 👦🏻👦🏻grow up with a healthy relationship towards food. So I’m always experimenting with new ways to increase the variety of foods we all eat. 
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a working mum, for me, everyday meals have to be quick & easy without compromising on taste, nutrition & balance. I love to make food look pretty & have fun with food - after all, we eat with our eyes & if making an 🥑look like a super hero 🦸‍♂️ works to encourage my boys to try new foods - I’m all for it! 
So what can you expect from my page?
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👩🏻‍🍳 QUICK & EASY recipes 
👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 Family recipes - with weaning options 
🎥 Recipe videos (usually made by my boys)
🧘🏻‍♀️ Healthy recipes 
🍩 decadent treats 
⚖️ A balanced approach to food - no fads & no restrictions
👩🏻‍⚕️ Nuggets of evidence based health & lifestyle advice 
🌱 Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy free, allergy friendly etc alternatives where I can
🌈 Lots of colour #eattherainbow .
🥑 A slight obsession with #avocado & persuading my children to eat it! 
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A huge THANK YOU to all of you for following & for all your support always - I couldn’t do this without all of YOU.  I read ALL your kind comments and you genuinely make my day with your remakes 🥰
Thank you so much 🙏🏽

Instagram post 17905018177553131 PEANUT BUTTER STUFFED BROWNIES
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Did someone say chocolate week?
Throwing it back to my favourite brownies... because everything is better when stuffed with peanut butter 😍😋
⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As london moves to Tier 2 this weekend I guess I’ll be baking more brownies - who’s joining me?! 
Stay safe & well everyone 
Chintal x
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
RECIPE: the brownie part is from @bbcgoodfood - it’s the best brownie mix ever so no point trying to improve it - trust me on this one! 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
350gms (ish) peanut butter - depends on how thick you want your layer of peanut butter
185gms unsalted butter
185gms dark chocolate @lindtuk 
85gms plain flour
40gs cacao powder 
100gms white chocolate
3 large eggs
275gms golden caster sugar
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ First line your baking tin with Some baking paper and load on a thin layer of peanut butter (about 250gms if it to make a thin layer) - I used my favourite @pipandnut smooth peanut butter...freeze this layer until solid & save for later
2️⃣ Now for the brownie mix - break the dark chocolate into small chunks and melt with the butter in a microwave, 1 min at a time into its fully melted. Leave to cool
3️⃣ Preheat oven for 160’c fan & grease/line a 20cm square baking tin
4️⃣ whisk the eggs & sugar with an electric whisk until the mixture doubles in volume and is thick & creamy
5️⃣ Pour the cooled chocolate/butter mix into the egg/sugar mix and gently fold to mix 
6️⃣ Sieve the flour and cacao powder and gently fold this into the mix too
7️⃣ Roughly chop the white chocolate and add to the mix
8️⃣ Be careful to fold in the ingredients gently so as to not knock out all the air 
9️⃣ Pour half the mix into baking tin & then add your frozen layer of peanut butter & finally the other half of the brownie mix
🔟 Bake in oven for about 25 mins - check and add a few mins if needed.  It should have a shiny papery crust & the sides just beginning to come away⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Pumpkin season is well and truly here so I’m sharing a quick & easy soup recipe for you  today - my pumpkin & sweet potato soup 
This was the recipe 2 years ago that persuaded my children that pumpkins are not just for carving but can also be eaten so I hope you enjoy it! 
Perfect for a cold and wet #meatfreemonday in London 
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
Serving soup in mini pumpkin 🎃 bowls is entirely optional but highly recommended to increase compliance 😉 
Don’t have pumpkin - use squash - see my stories for more!
Hope you’re all keeping warm,
Chintal x
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recipe: (serves 4)
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red onion - finely chopped
4-5 cloves garlic - finely chopped
2 medium sized sweet potatoes 🍠 (about 250gms) - peeled and roughly chopped
Roughly same amount of pumpkin flesh - roughly chopped (about 1 mini pumpkin) 🎃 (I just roasted 2 small pumpkins as seen in the oven at 180’c with a little olive oil until soft & scooped out the flesh to use - keep the skin for a bowl )
1 pint fresh vegetable stock/ or cube - I use @saykallo low salt veg cube
Juice of 1/2 a lime - more to taste
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 red chilli 🌶 (optional - omit for kids)
Salt & pepper to taste
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fry the onion, cumin, garlic in olive oil until soft. Then add all the other ingredients, cover in vegetable stock (add extra water if needed) and simmer for about 30 mins. Once fully cooked blend to smooth and sprinkle with the toasted pumpkin seeds, paprika & serve with a slice of delicious sourdough 🥖
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. Don’t waste the pumpkin seeds - toss in a little olive oil with a pinch of garlic salt, chilli powder & smoked paprika to sprinkle on top

⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
For today’s #nationalcurryweek instalment  I’m throwing it back today to a family favourite.... homemade chicken tikka masala & spinach pie....mild enough for the whole family to enjoy because who wants to make separate meals 🤷🏻‍♀️
Swap out the chicken for paneer or tofu for a plant based 🌱  version 
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you don’t fancy a pie you can just make the curry and enjoy it with rice or naan 🙂
Hope you can try it and pls do tag/DM me if you do - I love seeing your photos 🤗

⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👩🏻‍🔬 Recipe: (serves 4) 🌱 vegetarian option add paneer .
.
500gms chicken breast or paneer - chopped 
1 large red onion - finely chopped 
250gms baby spinach leaves 
1 teaspoon coconut oil 
1 cinnamon stick
5 Black cardamoms 
4-5 cloves garlic - minced
4cm ish chunk ginger - minced 
1 heaped tsp  cumin seeds 
1-2 tsp turmeric
1-2 tsp ground coriander powder
1- 2 tsp garam masala (skip if you would like it milder)
140gm tin tomato purée 
1 large handful coriander - finely chopped 
100mls double cream or coconut milk 
Fry the red onion in the oil.  Add the cinnamon stick, black cardamoms & cumin seeds.  When the onions are starting to brown (I like them a little dark so they melt into the sauce) add the garlic, ginger & a chopped chilli or 2🌶 if you like it spicy. 
Stir for a couple of minutes. 
Add your choice of protein & brown
Finally, add a 140gm tin of tomato purée, 1 pint of water, the spices &  a handful of chopped coriander. 
Simmer for about 20 - 30 minutes until cooked.  Add a little water if the sauce seems too dry.
Stir in the washed baby spinach leaves and cook for a couple of minutes to wilt them
Just before serving stir in about 100mls of double cream or coconut cream if dairy free 
To turn it into a pie, just cool the curry down and keep it in the fridge.
When ready, pour into an oven proof dish and cover with a layer of puff pastry - (I used 200gms ready made @jus_rol rolled out thinly to cover my dish
Brush with some egg wash
Sprinkle with Nigella seeds 
Bake in the oven @200’C for 20 mins

“Can I send my child to school?”
Literally the question I get asked all day at work and I ask myself often! 
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s so confusing for parents especially as children are back at school and coming home with runny noses and colds.
So I’m sharing this brilliant flow chart for parents and GP’s written by my colleagues at North West  London CCG based on a flow chart by @helpkidsuk 
A guide to when it’s safe for children to attend school and when you should keep them off and  seek further advice 
I hope it’s helpful!

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 
Hands up if you love Pani Puri 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️
Indian Street Food at its best! 🙌🏽
If you haven’t heard of them... Pani Puri are crispy hollow ‘Puri’ filled with chickpeas, potato & onion spiced up with a tamarind chutney 
The ‘pani’ which means ‘water’ is a sweet and spicy tangy water that is poured onto the stuffed Puri just before eating...
You basically get a flavour explosion in your mouth of sweet, spicy, tangy, sour all in one 
#ifyouknowyouknow
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 
My children absolutely love these too!
I wrote up this recipe with the help of my mum for a special feature coming very soon (clue in my stories 😉) that I cant wait to share with you!! 
In the meantime .... here’s my recipe for the perfect Pani Puri water if you’re lucky enough to get hold of some puris this week... you can find them in the Indian food isle of most large supermarkets 
Have a wonderful week ahead

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀

Large handful of fresh coriander (approx 50gms)
Large handful of fresh mint leaves 
1 teaspoon chaat masala 
1 teaspoon black salt
