Pav Bhaji

To say that Pav-bhaji (Spicy vegetable mash with buns) is one of the most popular street foods in Mumbai is an understatement. It is a dish that has played an important role in every college going student who has lived in Maharashtra. Countless number of morning  lectures were missed thanks to the small fast food…

Strawberry + Spinach Salad

It is not always that I end up making a salad for lunch. But I had stuffed myself with so many sweet treats over the week it was definitely due. Not all  my food (read dessert) pictures  make it to Instagram 😉   This is a easy spring/summer salad, with a lot of options as to…

Pasta in Avocado Sauce

Lately, I have been so in love with avocados that I make something avoca-dish once every week. My favorite way is to mash them up with a tiny kiss of salt, pepper and red chili flakes and spread it on a toast or tortilla and throw an egg in there too. I also like to…

Eggless Strawberry Pancakes

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is going to be  a Sunday!

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…

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…
