A Tricolour Recipe with global food is what I chose to make for the Indian Independence day. While I could have gone all Indian on this one, I decided not just to convey a sense of being global and to represent India’s progress is this tricolour recipe (Saffron, White & Green of the Indian National flag) made with International food. “Yet another day off from school!” was mostly what I thought of Independence Day as a kid. A day when I went to school to watch a play, collect some sweet treats to be eaten on the way home and scurry… Continue reading

I used a shortcut method to make Maharashtrian Masale Bhaat or Garam Masala rice (as long as I am in the zone of making things easy for you, why don’t I simplify the name also right?). So, there. The literal translation of the authentic wedding food of Maharashtra just simple means Garam Masala rice! I am one of those lucky few who have the influence of multiple cultures and cuisines play a major role in their childhood (some call these lucky few “Confused” 😛 ). Not only am I from India which is a mixed bag of cuisines (every state… Continue reading

I am the biggest fan of yogurt and I can eat it with almost anything. There is no need to hunt… Continue reading

I made this risotto over the weekend to signify the end of a very long, hectic and tiresome week. I have been meaning to post this beauty for a couple of days now but was able to take time off only today. Nevertheless, I am sure I will be able to do justice to the introduction of this classic risotto considering that I relive the feeling of comfort and my senses relax every time I see this picture. Risotto is an authentic Italian dish which is unfortunately not served in many of the big Italian restaurants! Usually, it is those… Continue reading

Garlic, pepper, ginger are the three musketeers for curing sore throat. Add honey to the combo and you’ve got yourself a home remedy for sore throats. While it’s difficult to have them mostly in their raw forms, I try to use them in a variety of dishes to serve the purpose. Overtime I have fallen in love with those dishes so much that I really do not need the excuse of an illness to make them now. One such dish is Pepper Garlic Rice PrintPEPPER GARLIC RICE Prep Time: 10 minutesCook Time: 20 minutesTotal Time: 30 minutes Ingredients1 cup rice 2 cups… Continue reading
