You have to be in Kerala to celebrate and enjoy Onam to the fullest. Though I couldn’t be in Kerala for Onam for the past few years, every year I make sure to celebrate it with Sadya...

This is too good to resist! I grew up having this milkshake and never got tired of this. In the U.S (or non-tropical countries), it’s hard to get hold of fresh tender coconuts. Whenever I find them I buy them and most of the times been deceived. It’s very hard to tell if the coconut will taste good or not without cracking it open. If you got lucky you...

I overcame the temptation to use store bought marinade, instead made my own and grilled the chicken; it tasted fabulous… I had a great weekend! It was so beautiful and sunny with clear skies. On Sunday, we bought a few packs of Chicken thigh-leg pieces. Grilling was the only mode of cooking I was interested in as I was way too lazy to make anything else. I...

Parippu Vada or Lentil Fritters along with a cup of tea on a rainy day, I would call this nothing but utter joy… Why do I always get the craving for fried snacks the moment I see rain drizzling down?

My wait ended...

Crispy fried vegetarian rolls… When my mom shared this recipe with me the other day, I wanted to try it instantly. As it was late night I had to wait for the next day to give it a shot. I tweaked my mom’s recipe as her recipe called for chicken or meat and I made it vegetarian. I had cauliflower, so made a filling using cauliflower, potato and some seasonings...

Chicken balls baked with spinach and stir fried with aromatic herbs… I got bored of cooking with chicken breasts, I cannot deny the fact that boneless chicken breast is healthy and rich in protein.
