Homemade quesadilla couldn’t get any better… Quesadilla is one of my favorite Mexican dishes. If I see this on the menu of any restaurant, I wouldn’t bother reading the menu till the very end. Quesadilla is basically tortillas topped with chicken, cheese and other ingredients, they are then folded to a half moon shape and are toasted on a pan or...

Vegetarian appetizer for Superbowl… I am planning to be a vegetarian for this Superbowl. Ooops did I just say that? Much awaited superbowl is just two days away. Not just the game, even the commercials are much awaited. The other day I heard on TV that around 1.25 billion chicken wings will be consumed on Superbowl weekend, according to The National Chicken...

  Rich and creamy puddings… I wasn’t into avocado until I tried Avocado milkshake, one of the best milkshakes I’ve ever tasted. Guacamole was the first avocado based dish that I had  tried a few years ago at a Mexican restaurant and after that I’ve had salmon and avocado sushi. Last weekend, I had bought a few avocados with the intention...

Vegetarian enchiladas tastes as good as non-veggie version… Last night, we dined at our favorite Mexican restaurant “Under the Volcano”. I love Mexican food and have dined at many Mexican restaurants before, for some reason I didn’t find any of them up to the mark. After dining at Under the Volcano, I finally  have a favorite Mexican restaurant...

One of our favorite appetizers… Not just as an appetizer, sometimes I serve this as a main dish loaded with ground beef and cheese. You can make a lot of variations while making this. I’ve tried quite a few, if I am super lazy: I will just layer the tortilla chips, salsa and sprinkle cheddar cheese over it and bake it for 10 minutes. For a vegetarian...

If you’ve had a whirlwind of a day, a meal like this will cheer you up… Before I start raving about the recipe, let me first rave about the World cup cricket final. Today was the 2011 World cup cricket final, between India and Srilanka. It was an exciting match which made me sit on the edge of the couch each and every moment, oh wait I couldn’t even...

Hearty Soup loaded with chunks of beef and veggies, so comforting… I had beef in my freezer and all kinds of veggies stacked in my refrigerator. And I had only one intention, to make a dish combining the beef and the veggies in the most easiest way, yet it should open up my senses. Well, I did succeed in it. A hearty irresistible soup loaded with chunks of...

What is the first dessert you have made? My answer without any pondering would be Flan… Yes, Flan is the first dessert I’ve made when I was young and believe me I have never screwed up this dessert. I used to make this often and was served with high enthusiasm for almost all parties. What I love about this dessert: it’s such a humble dessert which...

I stuffed the banana peppers, I baked ’em and I gobbled ’em… This stuffed, baked banana peppers was one of the main attractions from my kitchen that happened last weekend. I usually make banana pepper fritters which is a common evening snack in India. While buying banana peppers, I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it besides frying it. And...

A bowl of salsa and a bag of tortilla chips is enough to make me a couch potato and I can go on munching them… While grocery shopping, I always find it hard to resist a bag of tortilla chips and a jar of salsa, I easily fall for these. I don’t know how many bags and jars I had bought over the years, it’s better not to count 😛 If there is a party...
