This fish curry gives the best kick… It was an incredible day today. I went for a Middle Eastern food festival and had a taste of almost all popular dishes in the Middle East. I am totally in love with Kabsa, Saudi Arabian speciality; it was like biryani: long basmati rice and chicken, unlike Indian biryani this didin’t have any masala yet it tasted so...

Shrimp, noodles and Asian flavors, makes me hungry… 12.12.12! The world didn’t end, we are all alive and kicking. Honestly, I don’t think this world is going to crash anytime soon, there is a lot more to happen. On the other hand, I am not sure how long am I going to live and I don’t want to think about that as this specific thought always...

For all cheesecake lovers… I wanted to make my b’dy special by baking something special. I’d made a couple of fondant cakes in the last few months for my hubby’s b’day and for my friend’s daughter’s birthday. So, I was not up for making any fondant cake for my b’day. While browsing through my cake list, I found that...

Peanut butter made all the difference… Now, I know what to do with roasted red peppers. I’d been wanting to make something out of the roasted red peppers that I’d bought a few weeks ago. Last weekend, I did some experimentation with it. Made a sauce out of it, while making the sauce I added peanut butter which made a great difference in taste and...

I kept drinking and drinking this curry… I never get bored of Thai dishes, all of their dishes are aromatic, refreshing and comforting. Last weekend, I dined at a Thai restaurant and had panang chicken. Since then I’d been searching for a good recipe that can beat the restaurant style panang curry. Well, my search literally came to an end today. For dinner,...

Pickled olives and tuna gets along well… Most of the times, it’s the ingredients in my refrigerator or pantry that decides what I should make. The other day I had canned tuna in my pantry and pickled olives in my refrigerator and I was forced to make something out of it. How about tuna-olives cutlet? Didn’t sound that weird to me, at least I don’t...

Tilapia got a fancy makeover… Had it not been for my tastebuds which always want something different I wouldn’t have made variety dishes. I literally cannot settle for same kind of dishes, even if I make the same dish I would make some alterations. There are only a few dishes which I make in the same way always. When it comes to fish, I like tilapia as...
