A simple curry often served with rice in Kerala cuisine… I really think that I need to start brewing my coffee in my bed room in the morning, at least the aroma of coffee would help me to wake up. Nowadays, even the alarm has given up on me, I keep morning alarms in almost every gadget I have and it keeps blaring and I just wouldn’t wake up. Being a nocturnal...

My new obsession sun dried tomatoes… Hello everyone, how is it going? I know it’s been more than a week since my last post. I was out of town, was in vancouver and had an awesome time roaming around with my like minded girl friends. Being a traveloholic, do you think I would come back without enjoying the essence of the beautiful Vancouver? No way! I...

A healthy breakfast to kick start your day… I’ve turned into a pancakeaholic, and have been making pancakes by adding different ingredients each time. So far, this dates pancake is my favorite, maybe because I love dates and is such a healthy dried fruit. I’ve said a million times that my most favorite cake is made with dates, dates cake in caramel...

Delicious chicken balls in homemade tomato sauce… Happy Mother’s day to my dearest mom and to all the incredible mom’s out there. My mom and I always- argue, we debate, I scream, we have different opinions, I hang up the phone call…Yet the next day we talk as if nothing had happened. This happens only between a mom and a daughter and I am...

Salmon cooked in the healthiest way… It’s been a very hectic week, tons of work to do as I am attending a conference next week. Preparing the poster of my work, trying to collect more data and lots of experiments, looking forward to a much crazier week ahead. The conference is going to be in Vancouver, so excited and can’t wait… It’s...

Tangy eggplanty chicken… Fish and tamarind goes well, but I never thought that chicken and tamarind goes well too. My true intention was to finish up the eggplants in my refrigerator before they got spoiled, making a veggie dish was in my mind. As I started cooking, I found myself deviating in a totally different route. I first cooked the eggplant after marinating...

One of my favorite Indo-Chinese dishes… I had been slacking at everything last week and it felt really really good. However, over the weekend I opened the covered raised veggie bed and sowed some seeds in it. I can’t wait to see them sprouting, hopefully within a few weeks I can see that. Other than that nothing much exciting has happened. Here are the...

My recent favorite way of cooking fish… Glad that Thursday is here, can’t really wait for the weekend. After the run, as soon as I got home I started sneezing and was down with cold, don’t ask me about the sore body. No pain no gain, right? Well, all the pain and sickness vanished when I saw my picture on the front page of the newspaper on Monday...

  Deliciously delicious treats which tastes like tiramisu… Yesterday, “Cooking with Thas” turned 3 years old. I started this website out of the blue but with lots of passion. One of the amazing things has been the friendships that I’ve formed with total strangers from around the world who supports me and motivates me to keep blogging. Without...

Drool worthy breakfast or brunch… Somedays I find it hard to stop writing, other days I find it hard to start writing. On days when I feel not so enthusiastic about writing, I start talking about weather and this helps me to slowly get into the groove. So, let me start my weather talk, not today’s weather but about last Tuesday’s. That morning,...
