These wafer thin Semolina Pancakes a.k.a Rava Rotti is one of the tastiest things you will ever put into your mouth. Crisp golden bits with soft semolina and the crunch from roasted veggies, all in one circle and every bite, Yum Yum Yum! Are you into reading quotes? I am. There are days that I start my laptop to get to work, just stumble across some quotes on Pinterest and before I know, an hour would have gone by. There’s no particular genre that I like. It could be inspirational or funny or just plain sarcastic. The language and how one… Continue reading

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

I had to make this mango sooji halwa or I wouldn’t have lived to see today. My mango-crazy husband almost gnawed through my brains to make Mango Mousse cake again (For heaven’s sake! I just cleaned the container a couple of days ago!)  Then again, who wouldn’t love mangoes if they looked like this?! Mango Sooji Halwa in plain English is a mango flavored cream of wheat pudding that comes together in 20 min. The aliases in the title are the same word written in languages that Nachiket and I grew up speaking. Any food called by the name your mom used… Continue reading

Zucchini Hashbrown Muffins are perfect for your weekend brunch or a quick weekday breakfast. Wholesome, nutritious, healthy and the best of all (a quality that does not usually go with aforementioned words), TASTY! There is always a right way and a wrong way of doing things. Take hash browns for example. You can have a greasy, deep fried, carb-loaded potato (I looove carbs, but I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have them in moderation) hashbrown from a drive through on your way to work OR have these super-light, baked, no carb zucchini hashbrowns made at home using the best of ingredients. The… Continue reading

Homemade Croissants. Check. That’s the check from my “I-definitely-want-to-make-this-at-home” list. I love replicating at home, restaurant specials that look really tough to make. Of course, croissant is not a restaurant special but I have wanted to replicate it ever since I tried it for the first time a couple of years ago.  I have to be honest with you. It was a tedious process. Then again, every recipe I have made for the first time (specially baking and exotic desserts) has seemed tedious and has made me sigh, “Never again!”.  Next Step, I make it again on another day. Call… Continue reading
