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...

    Veggie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

      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,...

            Fig Ice Cream With Honey Roasted Almonds

              Summers are full of fruits and fruity ice creams are one of the best to enjoy them in this heat. With only last few weeks of summer remaining I am trying to make most of it and what better to do than make ice creams! I came across Fig (anjeer in Hindi) ice cream during my stay in...

              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...

                Whole Wheat Pita Chips With Yogurt Dip

                  After the whole wheat pita bread recipe, here comes the next – whole wheat pita chips. No I’m not getting obsessed with pita breads, it’s just that the other day when I made them I had 2 leftovers and rather than eating them for dinner I thought of making pita chips to munch on. Any snack which is healthy makes me really happy because I can munch on them without much guilt. I usually do not buy any type of chips/wafers from stores, in fact I don’t...

                  Honey Roasted Almonds

                    Honey roasted almonds are one of my favorite snacks to make at home! Sweetened almonds with a touch of salt are highly addictive!

                    I don’t know about you but I love candied nuts, these little treats are so addictive and so delicious that it’s hard to keep your hands off them. Whenever we go to farmer’s market I see these little shops selling delicious looking candied nuts.

                    There are walnuts,...

                    Whole Wheat Pita Bread

                      Growing up in India, my knowledge of other cuisines (other than Indian of course) was very limited. I only knew about indian veggies, breads, rice and lentils. When we grew up a little, things changed and suddenly pizzas, pastas and manchurian were...
