Fluffy Pancakes

I do not remember at what stage I jumped on the “I love PANCAKES for breakfast” bandwagon but now I secretly wear a shirt bearing those words! I can eat them at any time of the day and in any form. Especially, when I have delicious and colorful berries at my disposal, the foodie in me…

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.

Crispy Prawn Fry

Crispy, spicy prawn (Shrimp) fry a.k.a. Kolambi fry in Marathi is a dish that is very close to my heart as I have many fond childhood memories associated with it. My grandmother would make these on a  Sunday and my brother and I would come crawling to the kitchen and munch on these when they were…

Stuffed Peppers

This is the kind of food I throw together when I do not have much going on in the fridge. This happens more often than I would like as I am a sucker when it comes to making grocery lists. I overestimate my ability to memorize things and then end up forgetting majority of them. But…

Cappuccino Chocolate Cupcakes

Though I do not remember the last time I made chocolate cup  cakes,  I do remember the first time I made them, and boy it was a disaster! As Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I would like to share a small story about my first cupcake with my mom. I was 10 years…

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…

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…
