Cappuccino swirls: chocolate cravings 101


Cookies with a hot cup of tea and coffee can be such a refreshing experience. Ever since I’ve started baking cookies at home, I just can’t seem to buy them over the counter. Munching on a freshly baked batch of cookies is a joy like no other! I had an amazing experience while baking these […]

Carrot Mania: more ideas for sides


Bugs bunny is  among the top 5 animated characters in my list. First of all, he’s got the looks, he’s smart and witty and health conscious (after all, he only eats carrots). My carrot frenzy has been there ever since I was a kid. My two favourite things to eat: Carrot and laddos. So, till […]

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 […]

Raspberry Coulis: A perfect dessert dressing


This week was all about Diwali planning and now that it is coming to and end, what better than to celebrate with new recipes. I’d been eyeing a bag of raspberries at the food store I go to for a long time but it used to end at my greedy looks only as I was […]

Green Pea Soup


Winters is the best time to enjoy the sun! The same sun that we play hide and seek with in Delhi’s hot months of May and June. So yes, winters give us Delhiites a reason to dress up in those lovely turtle necks (anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge turtle neck fan!), […]
