Chicken Katsu Curry

Hello hello! 🙂 Hope everyone is doing okay in various parts of the world? The present circumstances seem unreal , right? I have barely stepped out of the house ever since the Irish PM announced the closure of schools and colleges in March. I was in college at the time (I am a culinary arts…

Eureka Paneer Tikka Puffs!

Hello world, How is everyone doing in this real-life sci-fi movie that we seem to be living in nowadays? It just seems so surreal that the whole world has come to an abrupt stand-still. So many have perished already to this deadly epidemic that came out of nowhere and worst still, we have no idea…

Festive delights: Tempting Samosas!

India is a land of many festivals. Back home, as Holi or Diwali approaches, air seems heavy with festive anticipation. One of the major festivals of Hinduism, Holi spiritually signifies the victory of good over evil and hope over despair. It is also referred to as “Festival of Spring” or “Festival of colors”.

The Best Winter-Special Minestrone soup!

Hello Foodies, I hope that weather at your end of the world is nicer than ours, because here in Ireland, winter is far from over. Every time it seems that the days are getting warmer, we are hit by another cold wave and freezing winds which tell us otherwise. The silver lining is that the…

Aromatic Egg Biryani

As an adult, I think Biryani is my favorite Indian dish. Meat/veggies/eggs and rice are cooked separately before being layered with various elements and finally, cooked together in steam…it results in one of the most tempting and insanely delicious rice preparations ever. Seriously, if you haven’t tried Biryani until now, you are missing a lot. Biryani can…

The stunning trees in the windows, reindeer decorations in the lawns, Christmas carols in the shops and…

Indian-classic: Bharwa-Bhindi (Spice-stuffed Okra)

I have been living outside India for many years now. One of the most annoying things that I still struggle to date is – calling Bhindi as ‘Okra’, as opposed to ‘Lady-fingers’ which we have grown up calling it back home. I remember the first time I asked for ‘Lady-fingers’ at a vegetable shop in…

North-India classic: Amritsari Chhole-Kulche!

I just loved this week’s theme for our #FoodieMonday #Bloghop group, suggested by our Marathi Mulgi Poonam (who blogs at Annapoorna) – INDIAN-FLATBREADS! If you google the list of Indian-flatbreads made across our country, you will be amazed to see the sheer number and variety of the way one can make bread. I am an…

Mind-blown: Chicken Tikka Pasta!

Don’t you just love it when the cooking experiments work brilliantly!!  Last night, I made some delicious Chicken tikka Masala, and instead of pairing it with rice, I decided to use it as a sauce for Pasta on a hunch. Topped with some roasted mixed vegetables and lots of parmesan cheese……. and Voila! Indo-Italian spice-fest…
