Spring Onion & Paneer Bhurji | Scrambled Spring Onion & Cottage Cheese

Translations, especially when it comes to the names of dishes, make me a little loopy. Especially when I can’t find a word to express a particular aspect of the dish and have to rename it. Or when I do find an English equivalent but (not blaming the language here, no sir!), the emotion is missing…Like, ‘scrambled’ doesn’t really give the…

Date and Coconut Ice-cream

I’ve stopped identifying as a foodie due to peer pressure. And that is because I am finicky about the food I eat, textures, combinations and vocal about not wanting to eat certain foods that do not agree with me – physiologically and psychologically. And according to some ‘true blue’ foodies around, that takes away my foodie tag! Because apparently, a…

Plum + Rose Tea Paayesh

The joys of returning to the kitchen to experiment and learn! I’ll be honest, I’ve been avoiding kitchen duty for a while now, pleading exhaustion, but in honesty, it’s laziness. So the credit of pushing me back into the kitchen must be given to Kamini Patel and her challenge of creating a recipe using a product from her line, Nature…

Chicken Dalia Khichdi | Broken Wheat & Chicken Kedgeree

The thought of ‘healthy foods’ fills my heart with trepidation. For all the love I have for food, I am particular about the taste, texture, sight of food, and there have been instances where I’ve refused to eat or been unable to finish food placed in front of me because I’ve –     Disliked the look of the food–     Been unable…

Sesame Egg Noodles

Flipping through the photographs of past travels – a favourite pastime in 2020 – I found myself grinning at the memories created with my BFF during our 2019 trip to Sri Lanka. As I flipped through the photographs, I could almost hear our chatter in the background, like an audio cassette on the loop. A particular photograph had me bursting…

Oats Vermicelli Pudding

Do you know those times when you set out to make something, stumble and screw up, work around it and then come out with something nicer? Yup! That’s how this Oats Vermicelli Pudding came about. The story of this pudding is similar to that of a movie that lost its plot but manages to end on a decent note. In…

Panch Ratni Dal | Five Mixed Dals

“Do you know what I had for dinner? Dal! Just dal & rice!” my neighbour said, looking at me in amused horror probably hoping this fellow foodie would empathise. I couldn’t. Dal is one of my favourite foods. So much so, that the parents start worrying about my health when I say no to a meal that has dal on…

Spicy Toor Dal

My computer is like a labyrinth, an intricate and complex set of things where I keep losing documents. Only to recover them after weeks or in some cases, months. This recipe and photographs are an example! It was part of a ‘dal series’ I’d planned to post on the blog and it had been kept ready sometime in April –…

Coconut Prawn Dal

It’s creamy. It’s healthy. It’s quick. It’s yummy! What more can one ask for when it comes to a wholesome dal preparation! The coconut prawn dal is one of the easiest preparations I’ve tried in recent times. Inspired by the liberal use of coconut milk in cuisines from Goa and Kerala, the coconut prawn dal is one among the several…
