Coconut Pancakes

To say that I am obsessed with making Pancakes is an understatement because you can find more pancake recipes on my blog here, here and here! Having said that, I added one more feather in my (pancake) cap and this time it involves coconut. In my quest to develop a perfect recipe for fluffier coconut pancakes I…

Stuffed Brinjal (Baby eggplants) Gravy

Its been a while since a vegetarian dish made an appearance on the blog. Cooking brinjals ( eggplants) doesn’t exactly scream weekend food but when stuffed with a splendid masala of roasted coconut, peanuts , onions and garam masala, I  couldn’t pass it up!   Actually, you can use this masala for any vegetables you do not…

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…

French Toast with Berries

If there was one dish I could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner it would be a good old French Toast! Even though French Toast is a simple dish  made out of bread there is so much more you can do with it to cater to your palate. Adding green chilies to it you get…

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…

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…
