Fettuccini Alfredo, with blackened Cajun Salmon!

It has been a strange week for us here in our little village of Ireland. Surely you would have heard in the news about the ‘Beast from the east’ cold wave that hit us out of nowhere these past days! To cut the long story short, usually where we get almost no snow throughout the…

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,…

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.

Vibrant and healthy Vegetable Chowmein!

The king of vegetarian Indian dishes- Palak-Paneer

‘Palak-paneer’ is most likely the prettiest of all the Indian dishes, as well as one of the most delicious ones. This main-course dish is a gift from north-India to the world and consists of soft cottage-cheese cubes in a mild, flavorsome spinach gravy. ‘Palak’ literally means spinach and ‘paneer’ literally means cottage-cheese. There are many ways of making…
