      Tomato Onion Mini Pizzas

        Towards the end of the week I am always motivated to try something different for dinner. It’s not that I don’t experiment with food on other days, I do but my baking addiction [read dessert] usually takes precedence over other things and I always end up...

            Borani Banjan – Afghan Eggplant With Yogurt Sauce

              Recently I have noticed the similarities between Indian and Afghan food and not only food even the language is so similar. If you go to any Afghan restaurant and look at the menu, you will be surprised to see so many words that we commonly use in India. For...

                White Chocolate Macadamia Nut & Nutella Blondies

                  White chocolate is not everyone’s cup of tea. Even if you like chocolate, chances are you despise the white chocolate – the milky flavor and sweetness is a tad too much for some people to handle I guess. As far as I am concerned I am neutral about it. I...

                  Paneer Tikka Masala

                  Paneer Tikka Masala is a popular Indian curry where marinated pieces of paneer are simmered in a tomato based creamy curry. This dish goes extremely well with naan or paratha!

                  Raisin Cinnamon Bread (100% Whole Wheat)

                    There are breads you bake as treats and then there are healthy breads, this one belongs to the latter category. I admit I am always skeptical about using 100% whole wheat flour in my recipes. Whole wheat is dense and hence I always end up using little white flour even when I’m trying to bake something healthy. But this time I was determined not to use white flour at all in this bread. I was looking for a healthy bread which can be eaten for breakfast without much guilt and so here I’m with...
