Lasagna

Do you remember what it was like to be 8 years old?   I came across a show called “Kids baking championship” the other day and I was in complete awe! Those kids were whipping up cheesecakes, cookies and cream puffs like its no big deal! When I was 8 years old I could barely put…

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…

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…

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! Honestly, I am far from buying into the whole Valentine’s Day thing with greeting cards, gifts and over the top V-Day gestures. I think it is commercialized and catered more towards high school crowd and teenagers. 😉 I say this…

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…

Stir Fry

New year is the perfect time for self-reflection and making a resolution but I know in 2016 I am going to find myself doing the same things I have done every year- Not keeping up with any RESOLUTIONS! So, instead of making an unrealistic list of things, (like vowing to hit the gym regularly) I want to…

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…

Spicy Indian Chicken Curry

You know winter is setting in when you are scared of early morning cold water more than anything. To be honest, inside my body winter always reigns. I am one of those people who are doomed to always feel cold no matter the weather. I even had a name during my college days – “Girl with…

Mango Coconut Barfi

This is the new generation of “checkers” aka “smartphone addicts”. Everyone wants to check their phone for every update. Checking for an update while someone is trying to talk to you, checking Facebook when you are at dinner in public, replying to a text while driving or posting endless selfies! I am also guilty of…
