Veggie Rice Bowl

Breaded Chicken Parmesan

Broccoli Fritters

I have a food theory. Any vegetable that can be shredded, or finely chopped, can be tucked into a savory batter with cheese and lightly fried to perfection. “Broccoli fritters” is one such dish that comes together beautifully with five simple ingredients.

Stuffed Brinjal (Baby eggplants) Gravy

Crispy Prawn Fry

Crispy, spicy prawn (Shrimp) fry a.k.a. Kolambi fry in Marathi is a dish that is very close to my heart as I have many fond childhood memories associated with it. My grandmother would make these on a  Sunday and my brother and I would come crawling to the kitchen and munch on these when they were…

Linguine in Tomato Basil Sauce

This week’s recipe is probably the easiest of all my recipes put together! I must have made this atleast 20 times and I am surprised it took me so long to put it on the blog. It is neither fancy nor filled with trendy and difficult to get ingredients. It is not particularly healthy or…

Palak Paneer (Spinach-Indian cheese)  is hands down the easiest way to ensure you eat your weekly dose of spinach! Lately, it has been a struggle to eat healthy food.
