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 […]

Fun Sundays with assorted greens: my favourite side dish (aalo, baingan, wadi)

I love the flavour of spices and how they compliment various vegetables. One of ways of adding a concentrated spice flavour in Indian cuisine is adding Wadi. Wadi is a dried concentrate of soaked lentils and whole spices. Lentils are soaked overnight and then ground to a fine thick paste. To this paste, whole spices […]

Load up on the goodness of sesame: Til Laddos (Sugary Sesame seed balls)

Continuing the discussion on Indian food, it would be impolite not to talk about laddos. Laddo is a staple and huge favourite not only in India but a lot of Asian cuisines. I dote on laddos like there is no tomorrow. Funny thing that as a kid I used to call them daalus, with the […]

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 […]

One such place that strikes a chord with me is the Olive Kitchen and Bar known as an Italian specialty restaurant. Visiting Olive Bar and kitchen has been […]

The beautiful view from Gunpowder

With such a huge backlog of post to update on TheFoodoholic, I stopped for a minute and looked for inspiration around. As I closed my eyes, I saw nothing but a huge cover of green… well, nothing but green. The blue from the sky merging into the green of the trees making it a hazy […]

Zaffran At Kasbah

We celebrated my mom’s birthday a few weeks back and for that I wanted to take her out to a new place. Since I did not  want her to spend majority of her time cooking for everyone else, I picked up this place – Zaffran. The restaurant is in the kasbah complex in G.K – […]
