Egg Bhurji – Spicy Scrambled Eggs

    This is only the 2nd egg recipe that I am sharing on my blog, not counting of course the dessert recipes where I almost always use eggs. I guess this proves that I am not very fond of eggs, it’s fine as long as I use it in baking but I don’t eat like an omelette or boiled egg every day. There was a time when I used to eat a boiled egg every day but now I am trying hard to make it a habit again [to include some protein in my diet] but it’s just not happening. While I am not very fond of eggs I do enjoy this Indian style spicy scrambled...

    Bhindi Kadhi

      It’s freezing here today, the minimum temperature is -3. I can’t believe how cold it already is and it’s only November. God knows what’s going to happen in December and January. Oh summer how much I miss you already! As the weather gets cooler I feel like eating hot soups and hot chocolate all the time. I bet I am not the only one who is craving for comfort food these days. And when I talk of comfort food, it...

      Ginger Garlic Roasted Broccoli

        There are two kinds of people in the world. One who love broccoli and others who hate it. I belong to the former category and I fail to understand why so many people especially kids do not like this vegetable. When I was little, broccoli was not readily available in India so I discovered this vegetable pretty late in life. I remember my brothers and other kids making weird faces whenever they were asked to eat broccoli. They said it looked like cauliflower but was nowhere close to it in taste! My husband shares the exact sentiment of those...

          Caramel Pecan Brownies

            Brownies are one of the easiest things to bake. Don’t you guys agree? You don’t need a stand mixer, heck you don’t even need a hand mixer for making brownies. The batter is made in 1 bowl with a spatula, there’s no creaming, sifting etc. and you just have to mix everything together till combined. I am addicted to baking but if you ask me if there’s one thing that I don’t like about it, well it has to be the cleaning part. My kitchen is such a mess after I’m done baking and that’s why I love baking brownies. Less dishes = less cleaning....

            Baby Corn Manchurian

              The Indian version of Chinese is so popular in India that over the years people have safely assumed that this is how Chinese food is supposed to taste and look. I can say this with confidence that no Indian will relish authentic Chinese food, it’s just too bland for our taste.The Indian Chinese cuisine or Indo Chinese like it is popularly known is said to have been developed by a small Chinese community living in the city of Kolkatta in eastern India. Today the cuisine is immensely popular all across the...

              Almond Cookies

              Before I say anything, let me just say that I’m not liking the weather these days. Great it’s fall and it’s beautiful but not when it rains nonstop, also it’s getting dark at 4:30 PM and that annoys me a lot. Like a LOT. I love sunshine and I am already missing it even though I know this is going to be the same for next 4-5 months. As I write this, I can see only rain and grey sky outside my window and also a big traffic jam. Arghhh. Anyway rant over and now let’s talk about cookies because cookies always make you feel better, no matter...

              Vegan Zucchini Corn Patties

              Do you like Zucchini? I guess it’s one of those veggies which you either love or hate, there’s no middle way here. Me being a complete veggie person love it but then I love every damn veggie in this world so my husband says my opinion doesn’t count! Anyway he’s a picky eater so it takes little efforts to make him eat a vegetable like zucchini. If I just stir fry it and give it to him, he will not eat it. However if I make these patties, then that’s a different story altogether, he would happily eat...

              I don’t what to call this dish, should I call it a salad or should I call it a pulao [pulav/pilaf]. Anyway whatever you call it, this vegan red quinoa recipe is super simple and super quick. I made this when I super hungry so I tried to make this as simple and quick as possible.

              Do you like quinoa? I didn’t know what is was until 3 years ago. Then after moving to US, once I went to Whole Foods and saw a...
