Homemade Strawberry Syrup

Homemade Strawberry Syrup made from fresh strawberries! This is my favorite syrup to use on pancakes, waffles, french toast & more!

I am eating so such seasonal stuff in India these days especially things that I don’t really get in the US. For example gajar halwa (carrot pudding) made of red carrots! You do get carrots in the US of course but any north Indian would vouch for the fact that the halwa made from red carrots that you get during winters in Delhi is just no...

If you ask me my favorite discovery “food wise” in recent years, it’s hand down avocados. Oh my god, I absolutely love them and to think of it I had no idea about this wonderful fruit some 5 years back! Thanks to America, I got really addicted to it and now I feel like eating it everyday. It’s good with anything & everything but my favorite...

I had forgotten how annoying it is to cook on these induction plates, oh the horror! So in India, we don’t have any induction plates or coils, we only have gas stoves. My first encounter with these was when I moved to Scotland for my MBA. At that point, I didn’t even know how to cook and then you ask me to cook on these hot plates, well perfect recipe for...

Baba Ganoush

One of my favorite dips – Baba Ganoush is middle eastern eggplant dip made with eggplant (of course!), tahini, garlic and lemon juice!

When you eat out mostly on weekends (like me!), you obviously try a lot of new stuff. I mean when you are eating out every Saturday and Sunday, you can’t be going to the same restaurants over and over again. Of course we do have our favorites and we go there often but we also regularly try new restaurants and cuisines. You might...

Mango Avocado Salsa

Easy Mango Avocado Salsa is one of my favorite summer salsa! It’s full of fresh flavors and really easy to put together.

It’s been so hot here last couple of days that we bought a portable AC! Yes I would have never thought that we would need an air conditioner here. But it has been hot and it was making it difficult for me to work in the kitchen. Now it feels so much better. I can stay near the gas or oven without sweating. This whole weekend we were running around getting things done around the house....

Refreshing Mango Mint Raita is the perfect accompaniment to your Indian meals. Serve it as a side with your favorite pulao or biryani!

Mango season will be soon upon us and I know who will be the happiest person in this world, yes that’s by husband. He has a borderline obsession with mangoes, I swear he gets so excited seeing mangoes at the grocery store, like I can’t even begin to describe it. The other day we found these mangoes at Trader Joe’s and even though they didn’t really look ripe still he picked them up. Well he can’t help it and I understand because I am the same...

Raise your hand if you are a fan of chunky guacamole! Yes yes I know way too many hands went up! I don’t blame you guys, chunky guacamole is just so much better. I am not saying that regular one is bad, that’s pretty good too but the chunkier version is just so much better. I think it’s the same way with granola, isn’t it? I am always looking for those granola...
