Delicious and filling cracked wheat or bulgar pilaf… I don’t get it why do rain always triggers the craving for fried snack in me??? Today it was all about heavy rainfall, it wasn’t drizzling or pouring it was more like waterfall. The rain was a bit mild during the day, as I started my drive back to home the rain got heavier and crazier. I witnessed...

A popular North Indian vegetarian delicacy… Long weekend seemed very short, holidays are never enough as a matter of fact. On Monday evening, I sipped iced cappuccino so tastily  and the caffeine in it screwed up my good night sleep. I am so sensitive to caffeine, if I have coffee or tea after 2 pm I wouldn’t be able to sleep as my brain will be working...

Oven roasted butternut squash, I devoured it… I’d roasted butternut squash a couple of months ago, and this made a perfect veggie side dish. I often make soups using butternut squash, however roasting them has become my new favorite way of enjoying butternut squash. I added Asian seasonings to the diced butternut squash and oven roasted it. It turned...

I could have this healthy dinner almost everyday… A couple of days ago, I had a conversation about face (of all the things in the world:)) with one of my friends. We both fall into the same category of having chubby/round faces with skinny bodies. Often times, weight gain is first apparent on the face and is an indicator for me to go workout. In 2010, I...

It’s baked, it’s extra lean ground beef, it has sesame seeds and is delicious… I baked these extra lean ground beef patties last weekend, served them with salad and pesto mayonnaise dipping (recipe coming soon). I will be mostly seen least enthusiastic about cooking during day time that too on a weekend. I will be a couch potato either watching...

Healthy, healthy, Yummy, yummy… Every Sunday night I ask this question to myself: “why do weekends go so fast???” I guess none has the answer for that. I had a pretty good weekend; got a massage on Saturday, did some shopping, did some reading etc etc. Before I knew it’s Sunday night and as always I was running around trying to finish up all...

Healthy and fancy vegetarian dish… I am sure most of the people must have resolved to eat healthy and stay healthy in 2013. After all health is the true wealth! I’d been not watching out what I am eating for the past couple of months and had been not working out as well. I feel I need to make a pause on this unhealthiness, also I want to eat more vegetarian...

A simple aromatic chicken stir fry… Today, two of my recipes got published in London link magazine’s december issue. It felt so amazing to see my recipes on the magazine. Here is the snapshot of the page: I believe in simple cooking and using ingredients that are always found in my pantry and refrigerator. Many times, dishes that are made with simple...

A popular vegetarian curry delicacy in Kerala cuisine… This morning the Sun that had been hiding among the clouds has decided to come out and spread some of its magnificent shine and light upon us. It feels amazing to finally enjoy a sunny and warm day! Ask any Keralite about Puttu and Kadala curry and they would instantly go Mmmmm. One of the most common...

Any day cutlets taste good… Hope everyone had a wonderful Eid celebration with family and friends. Mine was a very quiet celebration. As always, for me Eid=Biryani so made a simple chicken biryani without spending much time in the kitchen. Honestly, it wasn’t the best tasting biryani. I made it just for the sake of making it, hence it didn’t taste...
