      Strawberry Milkshake

        Posting this from the beautiful Yellowstone National Park. Even though the weather is not so great the place is simply stunning. The geysers, wildlife, lakes, waterfalls, it’s all so scenic. The only flip side is it’s really cold here, I didn’t really...

        Cabbage Poriyal – Cabbage With Coconut

        Before I say anything about this recipe, here’s a disclaimer – my knowledge of South Indian food is limited. Whatever recipes I share from down south are what I have tasted at restaurants or watched on TV. My mom never cooked cabbage with coconut so I don’t know how authentic this recipe of cabbage poriyal is but I have tried to recreate the same flavor that I have observed/tasted in restaurants. So not sure about the authenticity but can assure you that it tastes...

        Kadai Chole – Spiced Chickpeas

          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-together, road-side etc. If you have invited someone for lunch you are...

            My husband loves grilled cheese sandwich and that actually is the main reason why I got a grill pan. You can make sandwiches using the sandwich maker but the griller/grill pan makes them even more appetizing and not to forget the vegetables that taste amazing...

            Onion Kulcha (Whole Wheat)

              Kulcha is yet another popular bread from northern parts of India. This bread is similar to “naan” which is of course more popular in the western world. The difference between kulcha and naan is that kulcha is leavened with baking powder and soda whereas yeast is used...

              Methi Matar Malai – Fenugreek Green Peas Curry

                Methi (Fenugreek) is a popular winter vegetable in India. I remember those cold winter mornings in Delhi when we were served hot Methi parathas with butter for breakfast, so good it used to taste. But I have never seen these leaves at any of the grocery stores here,...

                    Summers are full of fruits and fruity ice creams are one of the best to enjoy them in this heat.

                    Cinnamon Rolls With Honey Glaze

                      I think I am falling in love with yeast, no seriously I always thought I enjoyed baking cakes and cookies more than anything else but these days I am always looking for ways to play around with the yeast. From being terrified of yeast to falling in love, it has indeed been quite a journey. Working with yeast is just so much fun, it really is! From breads to buns to pretzels to rolls, yeast is what turns an ordinary dough into all these lip-smacking yuminess! I have worked with yeast to make some beautiful...
