Carrots and beetroot are pretty, delicious, and versatile when used together. I already shared a dessert recipe with these veggies – Beetroot Carrot Halwa. This time I want to use these veggies in my cake recipe. It turns out a super moist lovely pink color cake. Ingredients: Ingredients : Whole Wheat Flour-...
My husband loves mushrooms, possibly why my son does not like them. Often, when I am making a late night meal for the two of us, I make this easy and hearty pulao. The cashew nuts add a nice depth of flavor. This recipe has both stove top and...
It is slowly sinking in. I'm slowly beginning to come in terms with it. With the fact that maybe, just maybe... vacation is over. Chutti Khatam, School Shuru (vacation's over, now its back to school.) I was in India for pretty much the whole summer. Hopping between cities, juggling airplanes, trains and...
First of all sorry for being MIA for so long! Between spotty internet, several flights n trains, Indian monsoon, copious amounts of food, and the warmth of the loved ones, I just got a little dizzy and lost orientation. Forgot that there's a blog that I need to tend...
Its adorable to see the girls bonding with their little cousin here at my brother's house. Even their chemistry is hard to miss. The butterfly being the oldest is the usual nurturing and mothering. Trying to keep the younger ones in line, keeping them from killing each other, sometimes from...

Waffle Recipe

I literally have no "purpose" right now. We sleep till the body says, "I'm good now. Get up!". Eat when we want to, the food that's not been cooked by me. Begin reading a book and actually finish it. No rush to get anywhere so we stay put in...

I took my little monster to the doctor this Friday. Nothing major, just the same old reason which has been troubling every parent since eternity. My kid doesn't eat very well! She would eat anything in the world except her food and that's the reason she's not gaining weight...
Its just funny how much my kids have started liking this paratha. Not just liking but this is probably on their list of favorites now, considering how they were put off by the mere idea of adding beetroot to anything. And then one day I just made "red parathas"...
This post is going to be short and sweet. Sweet as my friend Asha, whose cookbook I am introducing today via this post. I've said this over and again, every time I am asked about the joys of being a food blogger, its the people that I get to...
I've shared naan recipe before. I cannot even remember for how long I've been using that one and it had always been one of my favorites. Mostly because it does not use yeast. I always disliked that "yeasty" flavor in breads. I had no control over the use of...
OK, a small confession- I got to know about this "young and energetic engineer in Singapore who had developed this amazing robot that could make rotis for you, in your kitchen", about two years back. As much as I was impressed by the determination and perseverance of this young...
