Delicacy of Kerala… Hope everyone had a fun Easter weekend. It was quite a relaxing weekend for me, as always it went in jet speed. On every Sunday night I wish if I could freeze that day so that Monday will never approach. Before my wish goes live, there pops out a question “If you freeze Sunday, wouldn’t you be missing out all the exciting things...

An easy to make okra stir fry… Okra in North America and Lady’s finger in Asia, also called as Gumbo in some countries. I don’t care about the name as long as it tastes the same. This is one of the veggies that I loved ever since I was a kid. My mom often makes Theeyal or okra in roasted coconut gravy, a true veggie delicacy. I have to yet share...

Kerala style fish dishes are the most flavorful and delicious… One of the best things about having grown up in Kerala is that almost every other day I had enjoyed fish, either as fried or as fish curry, that too catch of the day. We have an abundance of fish as we are surrounded by Indian Ocean and almost all non-veggies are die hard fans of fish. Our fish...

Any salad haters out there??? This is for you guys… I get frequent requests from my man to make potato salad  as obviously he’s a die hard fan of it. The first time I had tasted potato salad was at a country style restaurant, it didn’t excite me that much. However, after tasting it for a few times I started falling for it. This salad is a very...

Shrimp, the gem of the ocean… I am an ardent shrimp lover and I can have it everyday without getting tired of it. I still remember how I used to request the lady who used to sell fish to us to bring fresh shrimp for me and she had never failed to do so. I always felt sad for her as she walked barefoot to each and every house till she sold all the fishes in...

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...

Kids fell for the taste and moms fell for the 2 minutes cooking time… We all know it’s not the healthiest yet we succumb to it. One of the instant dishes that I loved as a kid and disliked as an adult is maggi noodles. Reasons are it doesn’t taste the way it used to be and now I know it can be categorized under the top unhealthy food list. Still,...

For all peanut lovers… I go nuts for nuts, my most favorite being cashew nuts. I always have some kind of nuts stored in my pantry as they entertain me during snack time. Cashew nuts and peanuts are very common in my hometown. If you go to any beaches in kerala, you wouldn’t see people swimming in the ocean nor would they be sun bathing. They will be...

Almond flour and Zucchini makes this pancake different… It’s Sunday, it’s beautiful outside and cozy inside and I felt like blogging so here I am sharing this recipe. Lately, I’ve been into reading books, once I open a book I cannot place it down without finishing it. Also, I am not yet comfortable (and never will be) reading novels through...

A hearty stew loaded with fibers and proteins… Spring didn’t sprung instead summer has sprung and it’s hot hot hot…Everyone has just one thing to talk about, the crazy hot weather. Coffee shops in my campus are crowded as everyone has been rushing for iced cappuccino. Yesterday, I had to wait for about 15 minutes to grab a cup of iced cappuccino,...
