Rice and Chicken

Do you have your shopping list ready for the Holiday Season? I am still drawing inspiration online and from the local mall. I want something that is simple, thoughtful and creative. Last year I got creative and did a picture collage of the best moments captured during the year, so can’t do that this year!…

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…

Breaded Chicken Parmesan

Can we address the elephant in the room? So many  things have happened in the last couple of days! If I had a dollar for every time someone mentioned election, politics and India banning currency notes I would be rich enough to buy myself an unlimited supply of cupcakes! To top it all , “Game…

Broccoli Fritters

I have a food theory. Any vegetable that can be shredded, or finely chopped, can be tucked into a savory batter with cheese and lightly fried to perfection. “Broccoli fritters” is one such dish that comes together beautifully with five simple ingredients. I was amazed by the amount of broccoli I could fit in! I used an entire…

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…

Batata Wada (Fried Potato Dumplings)

Whenever a fresh shower of rain decides to grace itself making the surroundings cool, breezy and green my cravings for deep fried food  are at their peak. With that being said, say hello to deep fried potato Balls a.k.a. “Batata Wadas” generously fried in a deep vessel full of oil to crispy golden perfection on the outside and…

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…

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…

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…
