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 […]

Feast time with some Moroccan Tagine and lemongrass cous cous


Vegetable Tagine with lemon grass infused cous cous Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables.  They probably get jet-lagged, just like people.  ~ Elizabeth Berry ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The moment a liking for a certain thing crosses the boundaries that define the ordinary, we realize it is obsession and in most cases it is there […]

Mushroom and spinach Quiche


Last weekend my mom and I went for a picnic to Humayun’s tomb. Though I’ve been to this place before, but found that the amount of people visiting this time was enormous. Yes, this place has gained popularity by the recent visit of Barack Obama, but if you ask me, the tomb deserves much more […]

Chilli soup with Mushrooms and Broccoli


Happy new year to all of you!! We all start the new year with new aspirations/resolutions/ habits and I’m no different. In search of some inspiration and new recipes I head out yesterday to my trusty book store, Landmark and ended up getting not one but four books ranging from travel to cooking.

Creamy mushroom soup with homemade garlic wheat bread


Off late I have been working on recreating some of my favourite food right at home. My love for food just does not end at eating at a good restaurant but only when I master my favourite dish do I sit in peace. This time my target was making a nice loaf of bread and some creamy mushroom […]

Crunchy salad: A meal in itself


The best way to enjoy your vegetables is to make a lip smacking salad which gives you so many textures to relish. Don’t keep yourself restricted to the crunch and experiment with the various textures around. Boiled sprouts, mushrooms, peas, corn, chewy raisins, nuts, grilled cottage cheese, grilled bread, pastas, numerous cheeses… the list is […]
