Rava Kichadi

You know what I think is the most challenging part about food blogging? It’s being able to click what you cook before is disappears from the bowl! Seriously I have lost count on the number of dishes that I made, wrote down everything and then we ate it for dinner. I couldn’t click it! But then sometimes you desperately want to share something even if that means clicking pictures of leftovers, yes like this Rava Kichadi.

Kichadi in Hindi means a mix of everything, it’s a one pot meal made...

Brown Butter Banana Bread

    What do I say about banana bread that hasn’t been said already. Countless versions of this bread are available on the internet and rightly so after all this has to be the most popular bread that is made in every household. Have you seen a cafe without a slice of banana bread on their counter? I doubt! Even in a country like India where baking is still not that popular, people do make banana breads at home.

    What I love about banana bread is that it’s so flavorful and so easy to...

    Mint Oreo Cookie Cups

    I am trying to squeeze in one last minute dessert idea for St. Patrick’s Day. Actually I didn’t share any dessert recipe for this festival other than the mint chocolate chip ice cream and so I thought I should make something for you guys especially because desserts are the best part about this holiday or any holiday if you ask me! 😀

    Have you guys tried mint oreos? The regular oreos are always present in my pantry because hubby is a huge fan. He likes to eat these cookies with milk and he eats...

    Spinach Pesto

    Happy Friday guys! So another week has come to and end, it’s crazy how time is flying. It’s mid March already and it will be Easter in no time. Sometimes I wish I had the power to stop time. If I did have that power I would totally stop the time because it’s running way too fast for me to catch up! Anyway it’s end of the week and by this time we all want to whip up something real quick for dinner, I mean elaborate dinners are reserved for weekends but on Friday,...

    Kale Paratha

    If you are from North India, then you can probably make parathas even in your sleep. No seriously I am not exaggerating! When I was in school my mom would send parathas in my lunch box every single day. It would get to a point where I would request mom to send something else. She would then send sandwiches or noodles for a day or two and then it was back to parathas! I think the reason why parathas are so popular in India for breakfast or for lunch box is because 1) they are healthy flatbreads made with whole wheat flour 2) they are very filling...

    Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

    As a food blogger, it’s always fun to come up with new recipes. I love to play with flavors and experiment in my kitchen and I could do it all day but sometimes we all need that classic recipe which we want to make as it is because they are classics for a reason and you don’t want to change them, just like this mint chocolate chip ice cream. Mint and chocolate is a very popular combination and you see it all over in US twice a year, once obviously during Christmas and second in March around St. Patrick’s Day. And...

    Lemon Curd Cupcakes

    With the clock moving forward by an hour yesterday, spring is almost here, even though I hate losing an hour. But seriously it has been so sunny here that I feel like it’s summers already with temperatures in mid 60s. I love summers [in US of course, they are not fun in India with 115 F degrees!] because other than the amazing weather and lots of sunshine, I love all the delicious fruits and veggies that we get during this time of the year. Yum!

    Summers to me mean more...

    Basil Ginger Chai

    Chai – so many ways to make it and so many ways to relish it. Mornings in India are incomplete without chai, I think nobody does anything till they get their fix of chai. With so much chai around, it was obvious that I grew up loving the drink as well. However my parents always drank the simple chai made with milk, water, sugar and loose tea leaves but I could somehow never like it that way. So when I grew up, I always tried making my own chai, sometimes with ginger, sometimes with cardamom and...

    Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips with Nutella Dip

    I guess I’m the not the only one obsessed with cinnamon. It’s one of the most popular spices especially when it comes to baking and there’s a reason for it. You add it to any baked good and the flavor just doubles, really! Plus the aroma when you are baking with cinnamon make you feel heavenly, case in point being these overnight cinnamon rolls. <3 So because I love cinnamon so much and had some extra tortillas lying in my kitchen, I thought of creating a snack using my favorite spice and so these Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips were baked and devoured....

      Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Lentil Burgers

      What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when I say Peanut Butter? I always think of chocolate first because peanut butter and chocolate are like meant for each other. I can never get tired of this combination.

      I remember I was so excited to see what my mystery ingredient when I got my package. And as soon as I opened it, I saw a huge bottle of Sriracha Sauce! Yup that’s what my mystery ingredient was. I am well aware of the popularity this hot sauce has gained recently but...

      Imarti

      Even before I say anything I just want to say that this post is dedicated to my dad! He loves imarti (or Emarti), it’s his most favorite sweet in the world. I don’t think anything makes him more happy that eating hot imartis for breakfast. He often goes to Haldiram (a popular chain of restaurant in Delhi] to just eat Imartis, yes that’s how much he loves them! As soon as I made these, I messaged him a picture on Whats app and since then he has been saying it’s so unfair that we live thousands of miles apart. But...
