A wholesome breakfast for the extended weekend!


This weekend is memorial day in the US and I’ve got a 3 day long vacation. It’s funny calling an extra day off as a vacation but what then it is an extra day after all! I had plans of visiting another city but then things did not materialize so I had to improvise. It’s […]

Breakfast in a jiffy: Sprouts and sautéed veggies with yoghurt cream and toast


Breakfast is the king of all meals and I always preach on this fact. Go ahead and have a light dinner but do yourself a favour and indulge in a hearty, wholesome breakfast. Every now and then I see myself in a debate with my friends who don’t have breakfast and I question them why. […]

Back to cooking with chewy flapjacks


So I had gone missing right?.. Trying to make amends, I’ve come back with some information that will treat your senses. Recently, I went on this vacation which was long due but was just not happening.  Gushaini is a small village in Himachal Pradesh and pretty as a painted picture. I highly recommend this place if you […]

Savoury lentil Pancakes: Soaked mung bean


We’ve had our share of panckes made from flour in various forms so this time  I decided to try something different. Crepes made for various lentils are a common snack in Indian cuisine. Lovingly called a Cheela, it is a must have when you decide to visit India. With its filling ranging for the usual spiced […]

Savoury bread pudding: Gooey warmth for that perfect breakfast


Ever wanted to combine  the goodness of all the best falvours you like into that one bite? Well, I achieved that today with this amazing bread pudding. We’ve all fancied the sweet version of bread puddings but it’s not always you are in the mood of something sweet. The pudding that I made has everything […]

Healthy and happy kids with banana raspberry smoothie


Let’s face it; banana as a fruit has not had its share of the fame it deserves. Its high in nutrition but somehow it doesn’t go well with a lot of kids and grown ups. People feel strongly about bananas: they either love it for hate it, there is just no other way. However the […]

Roasted carrots and bell pepper Quesadilla stuffed with cottage cheese


Lemme just get to the point here, the sound of roasted carrots and bell peppers, marinated cottage cheese and some lip smacking sauce: all stuff in a trtilla wrap to make one crunchy and healthy quesadilla makes me go weak in the knees. Yes, I found the perfect way to enjoy my vegetarian quesadilla and […]

Rawa Idlis: Perfect breakfast food


After making an array of dishes to meet my sweet tooth, I decided to move to something healthy but figuring out what to make was the hard part.  Though so many options had been popping up in my mind, nothing was convincing enough for me to go to the kitchen and make. I know I’d […]

Chocolate Banana Loaf


My recent love for bananas (read nutritional facts here) has become more of an obsession. Be it the usual chaat with some salt and freshly roasted cumin powder, being tossed up in a superb salad or just cut into so warm gooey custard, I just can’t seem to get over them. Banana is definitely a […]

Mayonnaise in a jiffy


Mayonnaise to me seemed as a tough thing to make and the options available in the market were so horrible that I dare not tread again to the isle of displaying various brands available. However, seeing mayo demystified in master-class (masterchef australia), I mustered up the courage to try it for my own self and boy was it easy. […]
