It’s Christmas time, which means the best time of the year has arrived 😀 and Christmas would be incomplete without food and sweets. I really wanted to share a nice recipe with you all which would be easy to prepare and suitable for this holiday season as well. My friends and I wanted to make something with avocados. We could have easily gone with our good old Guacamole, instead we decided to make these easy cheesy toasts which I am really excited to share with all my readers over here. Hope you all give it a try and enjoy it as much as we did.Continue reading “Easy Cheesy Avocado Toasts”
Hello to all my lovely readers! 🙂
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on my blog. Reason being, I have been involved in a lot of travelling since the past two months. I stayed for about a month and a half in Sydney, and also got a chance to visit the calm and serene capital of Australia – Canberra. Apart from all the crazy fun I had during my stay in Australia, it has also been a great learning experience for me. My visit to Australia is definitely going to be one of the most memorable trips of my life. A visit to this place should be on top of everybody’s bucket list. I really can’t describe it in words how lovely the country is. There is something out there for everyone and nobody really can get bored at all. One has to see it to believe it.Continue reading “Vegetable Long Rolls”
These fritters are definitely for people who are fond of spicy food. The heat from the fresh green chilies hits you right on the palate combined with the sweetness coming from the corn kernels and onions along with the mellow flavor of mozzarella cheese. They all blend really well with each other resulting into an amazing recipe!Continue reading “Sweet Corn and Cheese Chili Fritters”
This again is a very quick and easy recipe to prepare. Fried potatoes give it a much more different taste along with sauteed spinach and gooey mozzarella cheese and cream. All ingredients blend really well with each other and barely requires any cooking time. It is a perfect breakfast delight. Feel free to adjust the quantity of the ingredients as per your liking.Continue reading “Cheesy Potatoes and Spinach on Toast”
When I think of a juicy grilled sandwich, all it reminds me of is Ross’ moist maker sandwich in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 😉 I am sure, Friends lovers would know which episode I’m talking about. A perfectly grilled sandwich should be easy to gulp down and each bite should be bursting with flavor.
Over here, caramelized onions are the essence of this sandwich. They give a perfectly smoked and intense flavor. They blend in really well with the cheese and the veggies and the sandwich tastes just yum!Continue reading “Cheesy Grilled Sandwich with Caramelized Onions”
I love hard shell tacos. The crunchiness, juiciness – the combination with all the cheese and the fresh veggies…. It is like a circus going on in your mouth! 😉 Without doubt it is a messy and fun snack to devour. It has been quite a while since I’ve been meaning to make this delightful recipe; the plan just kept on getting delayed. It is a very quick and light recipe to prepare.
Best part about this snack is you are free to add your favorite ingredients like corn, mushrooms, olives, whatever suits your taste buds best. Make these papadums in advance and store them in an air-tight container. Hope you all like the idea. 🙂Continue reading “Easy Hard-Shell Tacos with Papadums/Papad”
I simply adore pasta; both cooking and eating it, of course. 😉 I like to try them out with different flavors and sauces. Sometimes, they turn out great and a few other times–let’s just say, not so great! Eggplant/Aubergine/Brinjal- whatever name suits you best– in pasta might not be a new combination, but I was trying to make it for the first time. I was a little hesitant at first wondering what if it becomes too lacy or the taste of eggplant overpowers the whole dish? Thankfully, nothing like that happened. 🙂 It just gave a subtle flavor to the whole dish and gelled very well with the tomatoes.
Did you know: Eggplant tastes bitter in its raw form. Therefore, the fruit should go through a process called ”degorging” which involves soaking sliced or diced vegetables/fruits in salt water, resulting in loss of moisture and removal of the bitterness from them. Make sure to rinse them in clean water before use. This process also reduces oil absorption of the vegetables.Continue reading “Fusilli with Baked Eggplant and Marinara Sauce”
Who wouldn’t like to munch on something so delicious, so satisfying, so crunchy —> CHIPS? Well, at least I am sure, not someone who is reading this post. 😉 I think, sometimes it is okay to nibble on the so called ‘not so healthy food’. Right? I mean, it reminds you of so many glorious edible creations existing on this planet. They are so addictive and clearly no one can eat just one! It is like your hands feel this magnetic force coming from the chips…they don’t seem to pull away. 😉
I wanted to share this easy nachos recipe with you all, just so you can enjoy and share this amazing goodness with your loved ones. I have made this recipe quite a few times now and I don’t seem to get enough of it. They are fun to make. You can even involve little kids; give them cookie cutters to give shape to their chips. It doesn’t have to be triangular every time you know. Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do.Continue reading “Easy Homemade Nacho Chips”
Just about two weeks ago, I began blogging (gaining motivation from Likhte Likhte, who also happens to be my friend 🙂 ) and I can happily say that it has been a really joyful experience so far. In my initial days, I stumbled upon Daily Post’s Zero to Hero: 30 Days to a Better Blog Challenge and I’m so glad I did. I accepted the challenge right away and have successfully reached Day 12. The challenge is connected to Day 11 which was to leave comments on at least three new blogs. Day 12’s assignment is to write a post that builds on one of the comments you left yesterday.
During the process, I came across Kitchen Cici’s latest post – Rosemary Cheese Bread. I really liked the recipe. I have attempted to make bread before, but never quite succeeded. Therefore, I decided to give it another try, using her basic recipe with a few changes of my own.Continue reading “Bread from scratch”
A sandwich is so versatile a food, that it cannot really have a fixed recipe. You can top a slice of bread with plain butter and it would count as a meal for breakfast. This is probably one of the reasons why I personally love bread so much. I can relish it at anytime of the day. It is my first sandwich post and I have made an attempt to prepare a picture recipe this time. Hence, I have made a very basic CHEESE (hmmm so, here is the little gooey secret 😉 ) sandwich. So, do pour in your thoughts. That way it will encourage me to improve on it and make better picture recipes. 🙂 So here goes:
A loaf of bread
Freshly Ground Pepper
Salt to taste
I also had some leftover jeera (cumin seeds) rice. I put that into the previous mixture. It turned out quite well.
I hope you guys have fun making it and of course, digging into it. :p
