    What do you do when you have ripe bananas at home that you don’t want to eat anymore? My favorite way to use them is of course to bake them in some way – banana bread, banana pudding, banana cupcakes – there’s so much you can do with them! The other day I again had... Read more »

  • Moong Dal Tadka

    Moong Dal Tadka

    Of all the dals (lentils) that we eat at home on a regular basis, moong dal is probably everyone’s least favorite. Most people consider it as bland and in fact we used to eat it when we were sick or needed to eat something light. However I like moong dal just like any other dal,... Read more »

  • Pineapple Raita

    Pineapple Raita

    Raita in India refers to a yogurt based dish often served on the side with Indian curries and breads. I guess traditionally it was made to balance out the spiciness in our curries and then it just became an integral part of our meals. Raita can be sweet or savory depending on what you add...

  • Kadai Chole – Spiced Chickpeas

    Kadai Chole

    Life in India is incomplete without chole (chickpeas). I seriously mean it and you will totally agree with me especially if you are from North India. They are everywhere – weddings, parties, festivals, get-togethers, road-side etc. If you have invited someone for lunch you are most likely to make chole, if there’s a festival well you... Read more »
