These are ‘desi’ Capsicum. ‘Desi’ in reference to vegetables implies that they are non-hybrid and just as god intended them to be. Each of these little darlings measures about 1.5- 2 inches in height compared to the capsicum that we … Continue reading The ‘Desi’ Veggie Delight
I was feeling unwell. Nothing seemed exotic enough to entice my palate. Life was colorless and dull. So I decided to flip through my beautiful BBC Good Food Magazines to look for a dish exotic enough and possible with just the ingredients in my fridge. And the God’s were smiling at me. There were these wonderful red vegetables and fruit (tomato is a fruit!!!) in my fridge and red lentils in my store and we were set. The recipe in the BBC Good Food Mag was great, but of course I tweaked it to my specifications. And it was a … Continue reading Red Capsicum, Lentil, Tomato and Spring Onion soup – Welcome Autumn!
Weekends always call for something a little different from the weekly cooking. A meal that you can pig out on and then sleep off during your afternoon nap. And having a ‘picky – eater’ in the family does not make things easier. Today I opened the fridge and found all bits and pieces of vegetables that were just perfect for making Pav- Bhaji.

He looked up from his laptop, and concentrated on me for about 2 minutes as his mind went over the different interpretations of that sentence. Then he noticed the … Continue reading Methi Kadvuu & Dal Tadka (Translates in English to a very continental sounding – Fenugreek Pasta & Yellow Lentil Soup )

I really love potatoes. Really love them. My waist is a testament to the fact. And following in the footsteps of the Pioneer Woman I decided to put up a step by step photo op of my dear sandwich recipe. The camera is still broken so I made do with my hubby’s Nokia. The pics are fuzzy at times so bear with me. Here goes.. Boiled potatoes. Get good potatoes always. Essential. Mash them up good. Add Salt and turmeric. Donot add too much, or you will get a very sour taste of the uncooked turmeric. Its just for color.(fuzzy photo no … Continue reading My Favourite Sunday Breakfast
Yesterday was a typical lazy Sunday which my Hubby spent watching marathon movies. I was bored. So, I decided to do some baking. I didn’t want to bake a cake since I am not one for sweet treats. Then I thought Why not give a recipe from one of the food blogs I finally found and loved on the internet. Its called the The Pioneer Woman Cooks and its absolutely great. She has photographs of each and every step of her cooking and that really helps when you are cooking something new and you know want to make sure that things … Continue reading Baking Rosemary Buns at home
