Kutchi Dabeli: Spicy Indian Street-food item, a gift from Gujarat!

Dabeli is a very popular Indian street-food item which originated in the state of Gujarat, in a place called Kutch. Hence the name, Kutchi Dabeli. Even though it was first introduced in Gujarat, Dabeli is wildly enjoyed across India, especially in Maharashtrian cities of Mumbai and Pune. Funnily, I had never tasted Dabeli in my […]

Simple, Sweet, Super moist..Spiced Carrot & Apple Muffins!

  So for the past couple of months, I was suffering from what you can call as a “Cupcake baking phobia“! It involved a full batch of ruined cupcakes that I had to throw awayyyy because too many fresh strawberries had turned the batter liquidyyyy…..ughhhh! I don’t want to talk about it. Anyway, since that day, I had…

If you are from Mumbai, there are around 99% chances that this is one of your favorite snacks! Bombay, one of the most populous cities of the world and the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra, was re-named as Mumbai in the year 1995. Even though decades have passed since that time, still there…

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! It is obvious that you will be trying out recipes that you and your family enjoy the most. For instance, I was recently obsessed with trying out Italian recipes, especially pasta and various sauces,…

Crunchy & Aromatic Basil Pesto Pasta!

Who doesn’t love Pasta? I will be forever thankful to Italy, for bringing these pretty shapes of awesomeness in our lives. I love all types of pasta- spaghetti, penne, tagliatelle, ravioli, carbonara, bolognese, pesto….all of it!

The luxurious Pineapple Upside-Down Cake!

I think I may have mentioned this before…I had lately been on a sabbatical from doing my favorite thing in the world- baking cakes! Having a food blog is great but eating all that food by yourself, is not!! I love, love looove baking, but eating all those cakes most definitely does me no favors. Hubby and…

The Fragrant Mint & Sweetcorn Pilao Rice!

Back when we were children, those weren’t the days of dining at sprawling, high-end hotels or brunches at a four-star resort. Nowdays, when I see everyone checking into the Marriott or Leela or Westin on facebook, I smile on remembering the time when we would look at the Taj Palace Hotel of Mumbai from across the street during the…

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…

Indian-style Veggie ‘Aloo tikki’ Burger!

If you go through my blog, you can see from my choice of dishes that I am not too stuck on ..ummmm….”healthy eating”. I am a huge foodie and I can wolf down an entire pizza when I am hungry. No light soups and salads for me. Bring on the burgers and hot-dogs and noodles and biryani….

Domino’s style Cheesy Garlic Bread-sticks…made from scratch!

So, firstly… when I say Domino’s style here, I mean Domino’s India style. I have been living abroad for almost four years now and even though we swear by Domino’s as far is pizza is concerned, I have not yet seen our beloved childhood food obsession i.e Domino’s Garlic bread sticks in either UK or…
