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…

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…
