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…

Baked Salmon with Pesto and Roasted Vegetables

Baked Salmon with pesto and roasted vegetables is a healthy dish made with simple ingredients and is a perfect weekday night meal. But before we dive into the recipe and method I would like to say that this is my first time cooking this fish and there were a series of questions that went through my mind…

Chicken Fried Rice in Peanut Butter Sauce

Fried rice is one of those dishes that is really tasty and is also a life savior when it comes to using leftovers, especially rice.  It is amazing what you can do with just few ingredients and turn them into a restaurant worthy dish. Sometimes, I intentionally cook more rice so that I have refrigerated…

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. Last weekend my husband and I must have eaten every sugary dessert possible and I am not proud of it! Seeing a cupcake, pancake anything that ends…

Smoked Eggplant Mash (Vangyacha Bharit)

Salt paprika is now a year old! This time last year, a food enthusiast in me decided to post everyday food recipes and I cannot believe how far we have come. Thank you so much everyone for your love and support in making it come this far. Your comments and appreciation keep me motivated to do…

Healthy Chicken Burger

Everyone at some point in their life has used an emoji. 😉 They are great ways to exactly express feelings which a simple text message cannot convey. But have you noticed some random emojis that have come up over time? And they are more confusing than ever! One of them is a french horn listed under objects…

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…

Chicken + Broccoli in Garlic Chilly Sauce

Wish I could understand the reality behind reality TV shows. I am guilty of watching trashy reality television and then realizing I could have done something substantial with that time. Do you feel like you are in the same boat as me? I am talking about totally garbage shows where participants are expected to be mean, nasty…

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…

Overnight Oats

It is no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and raise your hand if you have skipped it because you were in a hurry to leave for work or class. To all those who raised their hands and also to those who prefer to spend more time getting ready than…

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…
