Instant poha (JUST ADD HOT WATER) is the perfect meal in a jar option to all the busy people out there who are looking for quick meal options but do not want to compromise on taste or health with the commercial products available. Life is getting busier. My brother is getting hitched! Yay!  Now, this does open up the Pandoras box of emotions for me. It makes me happy, sad, confused, and protective and many more things, all at the same time. But, I am not going to be talking about any of that since I am not paying to… Continue reading

For all you readers who are looking forward to my recipes, I apologize for the delay in posting but I promise this Methi Rice is such a simple and tasty recipe that it will be worth the wait! (For tips on serving Basmati, jump straight ahead to the my-take section) O.K. Reasons for the delay? I try to keep my weekend blogging-free. It helps me demarcate a work-week.

Risotto is an authentic Italian dish which is unfortunately not served in many of the big Italian restaurants! Usually, it is those… Continue reading

I tasted these for the first time at a friend’s place when she ordered for some takeout food. Boy, did they get me hooked! Being a rice-lover, I love risottos more than pizza and pasta. A risotto appetizer? Whoa, “I am gonna keep visiting you babies!” was what the voice in my head was saying I have learnt that they can be made in many ways, the classic with just cheese stuffing or green pea stuffing or something else. I love olives and decided to put together my favorites: Olives and risotto in my version of Arancini PrintBAKED/FRIED ARANCINI |… Continue reading
