Stop searching for healthy life, it’s right next to you.. Who would say NO to fruits?  I can think about a big NO when it comes to Veggies. I used to be a picky veggie eater when I was a kid. As a kid we all have heard one thing from our moms at the dining table over and over, almost everyday:  eat your veggies; it’s good for your eyes, bones, health,...

A sumptuous, mouthwatering Kerala delicacy: Meen and Kappa ie,  Fish and Boiled Tapioca. One of the amazing things about growing up in Kerala( the most beautiful and serene state in India) is the inseparable connection we have with fish. If you are a non-veg and if you happen to be in Kerala, you can definitely devour fish everyday, that too the catch of the day....

Midnight baked sweet potato fries… Here is the flashback: Last night I was sleeping to glory cuddled under the blanket, suddenly my hubby (who had slept all evening and was watching TV the entire night) patted me, which partly woke me up and I heard him whisper into my ears that he wanted baked sweet potato fries. For a while, I felt like I am dreaming, if...

Mmmmmmmmmmm….this is the sound I make after every bite of this heavenly dessert… It took me a while to get introduced to this dessert, after I found this we became inseparable. I have tasted this dessert in many restaurants, and I love CPK’s ( California Pizza Kitchen) the best so far. I often go there just to have a bite of this dessert. Every...

This herbal coffee is a great remedy for cold, headaches, sinus etc, will instantly open up your senses and makes you feel better…. If I have a cup of this homemade herbal coffee, I would shy away from any other branded coffee in the market. I have been feeling dizzy and inactive for the last couple of days, only one thing that is keeping me up and running...

I am still in the Eid celebration mood, before it fades away I wanted to blog about the big feast I had for Eid, and so here I am blogging, even after feeling exhausted. I am up for any kind of celebrations any time of the year. Before, when there was any celebrations, I would look forward for the special dishes my mom would make for us. Now, I would look forward...

Kaipola is a delicious sweet dish made with ripe plantain… Kaipola or steamed plantain cake is an authentic Malabar dish which is often served as an evening snack and also during Ramadan. Ripe plantain when shallow fried tastes delicious and will impart the needed sugar to this dish. It tastes rich and extremely yummy. Whenever I have plantains I am tempted...

I have been on a blogging spree for the last couple of weeks. I am surprised to see that I have blogged on almost everyday. This is quite impressive and at the same time I sincerely wish that this dedication lasts forever, as I am the kind of person who would get distracted by some other activities pretty easily. Since I am observing fast for this month, I hardly...

I absolutely adore cauliflower. I find this veggie as a pretty bride, dressed up in white gown with a green lace around it, any groom would go crazy for this bridal beauty. I know I am thinking little out of the box here, it’s just a part of my wild thoughts, no offense to any other veggies out there. If I were a veggie groom I would have married this pretty...
