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…

Mexican signature dish: Chicken Enchilada Bites with home-made sauce!

The best thing about having a food blog is that you are constantly looking for new recipes that you want to try out next!

Anniversary special: The Italian classic- Spaghetti and meatballs!

The Ultimate Comfort food- Chicken Pot Pie!

It’s the ultimate winter food. That creamy brothy filling…

“Chinese” and “Soup” – Two things in the food universe that I love!!!!!!

Something that I could enjoy in bed while watching the re-runs of ‘Modern Family’…

Hot, crispy deep-fried prawns

Have I mentioned before that I am not too keen on sea-food? Yeah, maybe a couple hundred times…he he! Well, I occasionally eat fish and that’s it but… if there’s one thing I am a total sucker for, it’s crispy fried prawns. They are so delicious that even I cannot resist them when they are…

I also love the fact that one can make a mind-boggling variety…

Stereotypical, spicy Indian Chicken Curry
