Creamy Spinach Soup

There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of piping hot soup to get through the cold days. The best part about this soup is, it does not require any fancy ingredients and you can double or triple the quantity by adding milk or water, as per your choice and preference. Even though this recipe has…

Warm Lemon Honey Drink

I have a recurring cold! Achooo!! Credit goes to the cold weather that is here to stay for quite some time. Whenever I get cold I remember the list of things I need to take care of :  Vitamin C, zinc supplements , drink lots of water and most important to keep WARM! Apart from…

Veggie Rice Bowl

Recently, I have started to explore the idea of cooking one bowl healthy meals. I know its a big surprise coming from someone whose last recipes have been deep fried! However, I can gulp them down only if they are flavorful and taste good. I wouldn’t put a recipe on my blog just because it looks good and…

Sweet Banana Dumplings

Do you always need something to munch on while watching movies? I prefer cozying up on the couch in our living room as opposed to watching movies in theater. It gives the flexibility of munching the above pictured  banana dumplings instead of over buttered popcorn and stale nachos. I have realized that eating crunchy  food in…

Wishing everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous Diwali! 😀 As many of you must be hustling in the kitchen preparing goodies to share with your friends and family, I have few last minutes Diwali special sweet recipes here and here which you can make in  bulk and store. Sharing sweet treats with your loved…

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. I was amazed by the amount of broccoli I could fit in! I used an entire…

Stuffed Brinjal (Baby eggplants) Gravy

Its been a while since a vegetarian dish made an appearance on the blog. Cooking brinjals ( eggplants) doesn’t exactly scream weekend food but when stuffed with a splendid masala of roasted coconut, peanuts , onions and garam masala, I  couldn’t pass it up!   Actually, you can use this masala for any vegetables you do not…

Batata Wada (Fried Potato Dumplings)

Whenever a fresh shower of rain decides to grace itself making the surroundings cool, breezy and green my cravings for deep fried food  are at their peak. With that being said, say hello to deep fried potato Balls a.k.a. “Batata Wadas” generously fried in a deep vessel full of oil to crispy golden perfection on the outside and…

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

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. Last weekend my husband and I must have eaten every sugary dessert possible and I am not proud of it! Seeing a cupcake, pancake anything that ends…

Smoked Eggplant Mash (Vangyacha Bharit)

Salt paprika is now a year old! This time last year, a food enthusiast in me decided to post everyday food recipes and I cannot believe how far we have come. Thank you so much everyone for your love and support in making it come this far. Your comments and appreciation keep me motivated to do…
