Stuffed Brinjal (Baby eggplants) Gravy

Spicy Prawn Masala

There is a reserved subtleness about this coastal delicacy that takes me back to a beautiful childhood summer memory on a  pristine konkan beach.

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.
