Our Story:
In January 2014, I started a distribution company for vegetables that are not regularly available here in Chennai. The idea was born out of my own frustration of not having access to a regular supply of salads and greens in the local markets. 


The fruits, flowers & vegetables that I offer are all farmed in India. They are

grown in professionally managed farms, owned by my family, who have been in the business for the last 30 years. Only minimum quantities of approved pesticides are used responsibly whilst growing the vegetables. In other words, we take care to make sure there are no traces of fertilizers or chemicals on the products by the time they are harvested. Wherever appropriate, the produce is washed after harvesting, before packaging and shipping. The produce is also chilled on harvesting which ensures freshness for a longer period.

The vegetables & fruits are packed in standardized  bio-packs, and you will find the size and quantity of each pack mentioned on our website. Today we also sell cut-flowers.

Roasted Squash, Mustard Microgreens & Quinoa Salad

If you looking to add mouth-bursting flavor and ton of nutrients of mustard or basil to a salad with less than a handful of greens, then be sure to buy some microgreens from us!

Microgreens supply higher amount of vitamins and carotenoids than their fully grown counterparts. Packed with punch of taste and nutrition, microgreens are here to stay my friends!

You can also substitute the squash for sweet potatoes, and add nuts to the salad for some crunch. 

SERVES: 2

INGREDIENTS: 

Sesame Garlic Dressing
1 Tbsp tahini paste (sesame paste)
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
2 Tbsp oregano (use 1-2 sprigs of leaves or 1/2 Tbsp dried)
2 Tbsp cilantro (leaves only)
1/2 jalapeno 
3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
salt & pepper (to taste)

Roasted Squash Salad
1 lbs squash (diced into bite sized pieces)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp smoked red pepper (or smoked paprika)
salt 
50g mustard microgreens (alt. kale microgreens)

Quinoa
45 g quinoa
160 ml water
1/4 tsp salt

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 220 C. Slice squash to bite sized pieces. Theres no need to peel the skin, as squash's skin get very soft from roasting. Place on a baking sheet and drizzle the olive oil. Toss well, and spread out the squash in a single layer. Season with salt and the paprika. Roast squash, tossing halfway through, until golden and tender, for about 25 minutes. 

2. To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a food processor jar. Pulse to make a dressing. You can also puree it very fine, if you wish. 

3. Transfer dressing to a jar or bowl and set aside. 

4. To cook quinoa, rinse first and then add to a medium saucepan with salt and water. Bring it to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed and quinoa is tender and sprouted - about 15 minutes. Transfer to bowl and fluff with a fork. Set aside. 

5. Step 2-4 can be finished while squash is roasting. Once squash is tender, transfer to salad bowl. Add quinoa, half of dressing, and toss to combine gently. Mix in microgreens just before serving. Drizzle rest of dressing on top. Serve immediately or at room temperature!
