Tofu Kartoffelkuchen with Mango-Coriander Dip

Hello everyone. I was on a short holiday. I really missed posting on my blog. It was a nice change and I hope that you will like the recipes that I have tried recently.

The versatile and delicious potato is featured in this recipe along with Tofu. I loved the combination and the Kartoffelkuchen turned out to be a winner. Everybody loved it.

Continuing my experiments with mangoes, I decided to make a mango flavoured dip. I added pureed mango with other condiments to vegan mayo that I make on a regular basis. The result was heavenly. It was just perfect with the Kartafelkuchen.

The recipe for the vegan mayonnaise is from here https://lovingitvegan.com/vegan-mayo/ . However, I just use sunflower oil instead of the avocado oil. It’s rich, thick and creamy. I usually make this and store it in the fridge. It takes just a few minutes to make this and it’s much better than the store-bought mayo.

This is an excellent breakfast dish. This recipe makes about 10 4” cakes.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.

  1. Oh, Padma!! 🙀 I can’t get over how amazing this looks and sounds. We’ve really been trying to switch our diet from as much plant-based food to plant-based wherever possible. We do believe in the positive change this makes for our bodies and our animal friends.

    The vegan mayo sounds absolutely incredible! We typically use mayo on many things, and the way you described this flavor nearly made my mouth water all over the keyboard, ha ha!

    We are absolutely going to be trying this recipe. Yum, yum, yum! Thank you once again for sharing a winner. Are you feeling refreshed after your holiday? I pray so, my friend! A break away from the hectic nature of life is always a beautiful, and critical, self-care need. 🤗 Welcome back! You were missed.

    1. Dear Holly, Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I’m really glad that you’re considering a plant based diet more often. It certainly does make a difference to our bodies and the planet.

      I’m thrilled that you’re going to try this recipe. I’m feeling much better now thank you. It’s nice to get away from it all.

      As always, I love all your posts about cats and wholeness. ❤ 🙂

  2. Forgive me, I meant to say, “We’ve really been trying to switch our diet from as much meat-based food to plant-based wherever possible.” 🙂 Sorry about that!
