Grandma’s Signature dish- ‘Til-Bugga’- A Sesame-seed dessert!

There is definitely some sort of magic in grandmothers’ hands, that can make the plainest of foods tasty and appealing to the most finicky of eaters. We all call my grandma as ‘Naniji’, and how ever much I try, I just can’t beat the taste of her home-made food. She is a strict vegetarian to…

Christmas Special: The Festive Rosemary Wreath Bread!

So, I don’t know if you guys caught my rant on my Facebook page the other day, but I had a pretty bad baking session over the past few days. Inspired by the many stunning pictures on my Instagram feed, I badly wanted to make the “Ugly sweater Cookies” for the current season drenched in…

Indori Style ‘Bana hua Baked Samosa’!

So firstly, what does ‘Indori’ mean? Well, this word is used to address people like me who belong to a quirky little town in central India called Indore. My lovely, lovely hometown Indore!!

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…

The Sensational Kung-pao Potatoes

By now, you all know about my obsession with the Chinese food. So, most of the weekends, it is a safe bet to presume that for dinner, we will be having the fried-rice or the noodles, along with a spicy, tangy chinese stir-fry. 9 times out of ten, the star of these stir-fries is chicken,…

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…

Every August, I desperately wait for the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, when we bring the idol of Lord Ganesha home for ten days of colorful festivities. Of all the Indian Gods, I just adore our elephant-headed Lord Ganesha for one prime reason- like me, he is a big foodie! Ganesh Chaturthi is a festival celebrated in India, during…

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…

Glossy & Flavoursome Veggie Dim Sums! (Made from scratch)

Call them Dim sums, call them Momos or call them dumplings– it’s one and the same thing! In India, we stick to the Tibetan term Momos and it is a wildly popular street-food in most cities. Here, I am using the Chinese term- ‘Dim sum’, simply as it is more universally recognized. Steamed food is…
