Ready in just a matter of minutes but tasted awesomely delicious and the aroma from the basil made the house smell so divine… Basil plucked from my garden and that’s what made this fried rice so special. The first time I tasted basil that was 6 years ago and I disliked it without a second thought. I didn’t even look at it nor tried to befriend...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Pile up greens/veggies in your shopping cart and forget about the supplements… I was listing all the green veggies that I have tried so far and was trying to find out if I dislike any of them. I was surprised to learn that I actually don’t hate any greens nor any veggies. I love all of ’em. Do I sound weird??? While living in India, I wasn’t...

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...

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...
