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”
This dish is really simple and will just take you not more than 15 minutes to make it, as it requires very less preparation plus cooking time. It is definitely filling too. I won’t say the dish is healthy as the sauce does have good amount of butter and cream in it. So if you’re on a diet WATCH OUT, and as far as kids are concerned; they will definitely enjoy it. 😉Continue reading “Broccoli Rice with Cottage Cheese in Chilli Garlic Cream Sauce”
This recipe is really healthy and has very subtle flavors. It can be had with any Indian gravy or on its own as well. Freshly ground black pepper gives this rice a really nice punch. If you like, you can add more spices and veggies to it. Adding curd to the rice gives it a very mild flavor.Continue reading “Paneer Pepper Garlic Rice”
I would totally call this a lazy person’s style of dip. All one requires is hungry taste buds that help you add your favorite set of ingredients to a plain bowl of hung curd. This dip is refreshing; definitely very quick and easy to make. Use it as an early morning sandwich spread, or have it with your good old tortilla chips and other variety of munchies.Continue reading “Garlic and Basil Hung Curd Dip”
When it comes to cooking delicious food, always make sure never to compromise on good quality ingredients. Try your best to find the the best possible quality available. There are so many different kinds of rice. If you want each cooked grain of rice separate from one another, it is important to use rice of a good brand.Continue reading “Burnt Ginger Garlic Vegetable Fried Rice”
I have clearly fallen in love with this chutney. As soon as one batch gets over, I yearn to make another batch of this
delicious super delicious goodness. It is mildly spicy and full of flavor. Serve it up with your favorite munchies or use it as a spread. I bet it will go well with mostly any dish you name. It is easy to prepare and store as well.
Pasta is definitely my weakness. I can hog onto a good plate of pasta at anytime of the day. Moreover, it is such a flexible dish to prepare and requires no fixed ingredients. The one I have made here is light on the palate and at the same time quite flavorsome as well. Also, over here I have prepared Alfredo Sauce with wheat flour. It is a healthier and an easier option and there are very less chances of lumps being formed while preparing the sauce. It was pretty weird for me to try it out with wheat flour for the first time, but surprisingly it tasted the same as the actual white sauce. Since then, I prefer to make white sauce the way I’ve mentioned below. Hope you all give it a try. 🙂Continue reading “Pasta in Green Chili and Homemade Alfredo Sauce”
In the past one year, I seem to have developed a rare fondness for South Korean dramas/films. It all started after a friend gave me this long list of K-dramas to watch. Just randomly, I picked out Boys over Flowers not knowing how famous this show already was. Since then, even after I finished with my friend’s list, I continued to create my own list of favorites. I recently watched Let’s Eat. It is highly recommended for a food lover. The food scenes on the show will urge you to rush to your kitchen and get something to eat for yourself. :p (Not joking)! Now, I am also keen on knowing more about Korean Cuisine. This dish is inspired from all the different kinds of food stuffs that I have seen on South Korean Films/Dramas. 😉
Noodles are my ultimate weakness. I am ever ready to make room for noodles in my tummy. I have made this recipe once before but hadn’t clicked any pictures so, I could not post it. I was too hungry and a tad lazy. 😉 Most of the time, my laziness tends to get in the way! Anyhow, it was really delicious and wanted to share it on my blog. Therefore, I decided to make it again. 🙂Continue reading “Lemony Ginger Soupy Noodles”
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”
We all know how well sweet and sour flavors complement each other. Right? This recipe here, is another yummy example of the heavenly sweet and sour combination. This salad is very light on the palate and a great muncher. The Sweet Onion Dressing is more like a thick sauce, well-coated in potatoes and pasta. To be honest, I was attempting to make a normal liquid dressing. It didn’t quite turn out like that though. I think I still need to figure out how to make the actual dressing. Anyhow, this one turned out pretty great for now. The ingredients here blend really well with one another, in turn bringing out a lovely dish to savor or devour rather. 😉Continue reading “Warm Potato and Pasta Salad in Sweet Onion Dressing”
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”
