I created this post - 5 Exciting Ways To Use A Food Processor In An Indian Kitchen for KitchenAid India, a brand I work with as their Culinary Council Member. I've been sent their products, and after trying them out, I love their range, which you can check out here.
Are there any gadget lovers in the house today? Hiiiiiiiiiii there!
I can safely say that over the last two years as food blogger I've converted to become a gadget lover and hoarder. But all along the food processor was something I always stayed away from, because you know space. Growing up, I've seen my mum struggling to fit a bulky food processor in the limited kitchen space that we had and failing miserably and I had no plans of going through that in my teeny tiny Bangalore kitchen. I own a small little Bajaj chopper and while it works, it's now been relegated to the darker corners of my kitchen shelves because it always needs such large quantities of everything to do a good job. So when KitchenAid sent me their 14 cup food processor I was expecting a major space crunch.

Thanks for the great recipe ideas. I have been trying to make cilantro chutney in my food processor and it never gets properly smooth. If I add water it becomes too runny. It's a mess. Did you experience the same with small quantities of herbs (you wrote something like that but didn't go into detail)? Is the solution just to add a lot of herbs instead of just a few? Thanks for taking the time
Hey Atia - unfortunately with a food processor, small quantities for chutney don't work. You will need large quantities to process this well.
Hi, loved the post( forgot to mention in the earlier comment) .. would like to know- Did you get to use both the bowls or just one ? Will it make any difference if I go with the 9 cup kitchenaid food processor instead of the that you are using ?
Hey Asha, I just have one. This is the 7 cup food processor. Unless you have a big family, a 9 cup might be too large.
I plan to pick up a food processor but can't decide which one to pick the 9cup one or the 14cup one . We are a small family of with my in laws or parents visiting us often . WIll the 9cup food processor be a good buy for an Indian kitchen ?
Hey Asha, the 9 cup should be enough even if you have family visiting once in a while

I was confused for pickup the good food processor but after visit this site i have select my favorite food processor. Good Reviews there.
Hi. I’m about to buy my first processor. I want to ask does the Hamilton 8-cup food processor grind meat well? I found it in a review on healthykitchen101.com. It’s affordable but the motor doesn’t look that great. I’m trying to find more info for reference. Thanks in advance (:
No idea Martha. I don't own one so cant say.
