Coconut Chutney

Simple and easy Coconut Chutney – this popular Indian chutney pairs well with idli, dosa, vadas and so much more! Vegan.

I have always maintained that I am huge fan South Indian food fan. I am a north Indian and my mom never really made south Indian food at home. 

It was the occasional dosas that she would make and that too from store bought batter. We mostly ate south Indian food at...

Make the most of peach season with this sweet and spicy Peach Chutney! This versatile chutney goes well with almost anything and everything!

Peach season is finally here!

All year long, I look forward to the peach season but the sad part is that it ends pretty soon. I think it only lasts for a week or two. One week, the peaches are in the market and not really ripe and the next week they are super ripe. So ripe...

Aam ki Launji is a sweet and spicy chutney made of raw green mangoes. It’s the perfect accompaniment to Indian meals and also tastes amazing with paratha!

Do you guys like to have your Indian meal with some chutney or pickle on the side? Ever since I can remember, we always had some or the other chutney on our table for lunch. And yes there was always pickle on the table too. My nani (grandmother) made the best red chili pickle and I was so obsessed with it as a child. I just requested mom to...

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.

It’s good with anything & everything but my favorite...

Kale Walnut Pesto

One of my favorite sauce, this Kale Walnut Pesto is so versatile. Enjoy it over sandwiches, pizza, pasta and much more!

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....
