Prawns in Coconut Gravy

Did you watch the Oscars yesterday? Honestly, I was just waiting for them to announce Leo’s name (intuition people..intuition) and kept switching after Priyanka Chopra presented an award. She looked gorgeous by the way! Yes, Leo won an Oscar and the whole world can finally heave a sigh of relief. He not only received a…

Crab Cakes

I know I say everything is my favorite but seriously, when it comes to seafood appetizers crab cakes are on top of my list. I just love love them! Even when I was little I use to look forward to my mom making crabs, especially crab soup and spicy crab gravy. I have not cooked…

Eggless Strawberry Pancakes

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is going to be  a Sunday! Honestly, I am far from buying into the whole Valentine’s Day thing with greeting cards, gifts and over the top V-Day gestures. I think it is commercialized and catered more towards high school crowd and teenagers. 😉 I say this…

Lemon Butter Chicken

Now that January is over, it is safe to say everyone is getting back to their old 2015 self. Just Kidding! It is great to be able to stick to your new diet resolutions but as far as I am concerned, my ship has sailed long time back. I try to substitute rich ingredients with healthier…

Veggie Pizza Muffins

Cooking and baking are one of my few passions but because of that I always end up making more food than necessary which leads to lot of leftovers.  My favorite way to use up left overs is to add cheese to (almost) everything! Whenever I think of cheese & leftover veggies , I think of pizza…

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache

Any food that includes Chocolate makes me happy! So, it was only fitting to kick start the new years eve with a decadent chocolate cake. I have baked this cake three times in the last month for different events and every single time, it has turned out beautifully.  I can’t get over how simple this recipe is…

Stir Fry

New year is the perfect time for self-reflection and making a resolution but I know in 2016 I am going to find myself doing the same things I have done every year- Not keeping up with any RESOLUTIONS! So, instead of making an unrealistic list of things, (like vowing to hit the gym regularly) I want to…

Cranberry-Orange Bundt Cake

It’s my Mom’s Birthday! And guess who is responsible for the cake…? My mom is not a huge fan of heavy frosting or any cream toppings, so decided to make a simple sugar glaze on top of this CRANBERRY-ORANGE BUNDT CAKE. A little side note ,  just add about a tablespoon of fresh orange juice to the…

Blueberry Muffins

It is interesting to read how Bollywood celebrities land themselves into a web of controversy. Especially, a certain veteran actor of ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Ghajni’ fame.   As soon as the comments were made,  social media was abuzz with criticism and hate. On one hand I do feel that celebrities need to be politically correct during…

Spicy Indian Chicken Curry

You know winter is setting in when you are scared of early morning cold water more than anything. To be honest, inside my body winter always reigns. I am one of those people who are doomed to always feel cold no matter the weather. I even had a name during my college days – “Girl with…

Cajun Spiced Chicken

I have  had a LOVE-HATE relationship with “Spicy” food. I LOVE the fact that it adds more flavor to the dish and makes it palatable. In addition, it also has anti-inflammatory properties, which is a great side- effect! However, if you have chopped peppers or in my case mixed the Cajun spiced marinade with your…
