Hot & Saucy Veg. Lollipops!

Today’s recipe is very, very close to my heart. In all our lives, there are some foods that are extremely nostalgic to us! Maybe it’s the ‘vada-pao’ from that vendor who sat across the street from your college, where you used to spend all your breaks with your friends….or maybe it’s that simple tomato and…

Fusion Fiesta: Fiery & Loaded Baked Schezwan Nachos

My first encounter with nachos dates back to the time when the first PVR theater opened up in my small, lovely town Indore. I do not remember the movie I had gone to watch, but I do remember the scrawny guy at the snack counter saying- “We have Samosa and we have Nachos” I did not…

Cheesylicious Pizza Bites!

I am the biggest fan of all things cheesy, yummy and ‘unhealthy’. Why oh why, do the best things in the world have to be so fattening?? Sob! Sob! I love the Domino’s cheesy dough-balls sooo much. Each time we order a pizza, hubby begs me to order another appetizer for a change but till…

Favorite Meaty Street-food- Tangy & Spicy Chilly Chicken!

We Indians have a different version of ‘Chinese’ that apparently first originated in the vibrant city of Kolkata. It’s called as – “Indo-chinese” cuisine! So, outside of India, if a newly-migrated Indian tells you that they are extremely fond of Chinese food, you can safely assume that they are not talking about your traditional Chinese…

The Aromatic & Cheery Orange Iced-Tea!

So, eventhough I have returned to the land of no sun- Ireland from my month long vacation to homeland, mentally my mind refuses to leave India. In my head, I am still at my mum’s house in Central India, enjoying the delicious mangoes daily by a dozen and squinting at scorching 40 degrees Celcius outside…

Refreshing Pomegranate & Lime Mocktail!

  Hubby, a die-hard fruit lover, bought two pomegranates which turned out to be less sweet than we would have liked. Now, a pomegranate is a sacred commodity in our house as my health-freak of a better-half loves to chant to me, the benefits of this wonder fruit. It is loaded in anti-oxidants It is rich in Vitamin A, C,…

South-Indian special: Tangy Onion-Tomato chutney for Dosas and Idly!

What is a South-Indian meal without chutney? ……… and even though most of us prefer the traditional coconut chutney to accompany our Idlis and Dosas, I equally love having all the other varieties of delightful South-Indian chutneys just as much! Best thing about these Indian dips is that you can alter the taste any which way you like. Not a fan of garlic?…

Gorgeous & Delicious Hasselback Potatoes!

For a chubby girl who perpetually struggles to keep her weight under check, I do have a hard time staying away from potatoes. I mean, who doesn’t love them? I cook potatoes in some form or the other, atleast 3 times a week. Hubby too worships them and thus, it is safe to say that this is…
