Silky and Creamy Mor Kozhambu

It is going to be almost a year (well, nine months to be precise) since we moved in to our new house. We’ve been enjoying the additional space, luxury and the sense of accomplishment every single day. It gives us so much of pleasure to decorate it, have friends over and build cherish-able memories one after the…

The Tastiest Ever Vegetable Kurma!

Everyone around me knows that I’m a foodie, big time. Thoughts and questions related to food run as a parallel stream all the time in my mind. Wherever I may go, whatever I may do, my foodie antennae would always be up and active to pick up ideas, tips and knowledge about food/cooking.

Mango Yogurt and Berry Parfait

Today’s post is a special one and I’m going to be sharing some exciting news with you :). If you don’t have the patience to read through the entire post to know about it, simply scroll to the end :).

Mango Citrus Mocktail

It is raining mangoes everywhere. Grocery stores, food blogs, photography sites, lunch/dinner menus I’m hearing from my friends and family – all have something to do with mangoes now. I’m joining the mango bandwagon too with this simple yet super delicious Mango Citrus Mocktail.

Semiya Payasam (Vermicelli Kheer)

Are you someone that tries to find a reason to have some dessert every time? I seem to have become one over the years. I feel that the guilt of indulging in sweets vanishes almost instantly when it is backed up with a good reason ;).

Spiced Avocado Buttermilk – A Refreshing Summer Drink

Winter has been terribly tough and tenacious where we live. The stores have started to carry lovely spring clothes, but to get a glimpse of even a little bit of green grass seems impossible. It is snow, snow everywhere and white appears to be nature’s only favorite color for now.

Idli Milagai Podi

Long journeys with family in Tamilnadu are not complete without idlies dipped and drenched in spicy milagai podi and sesame (gingelly) oil. Everyone eagerly waits for their packet of these idlies wrapped in banana leaf that in turn is wrapped in some old newspaper and tied with a jute string. The banana leaf imparts its own flavor…

Simple, humble, yet delectable Rava Kesari (Sooji Halwa)!

Did I not tell you that I’m going to be soon back with the recipe for a dessert? This is the family recipe that I was talking about in my previous post. This perhaps is the very first dessert I learned to make. Well, it used to be my not so favorite thing to eat, but…

Chopped Salad with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette

Hello folks! How are you? How has the New Year been treating you so far? How have you been doing on your resolutions, if you went in for some? It has been a very pleasing year for me so far. We moved into our new house and have settled in quite comfortably. It is a nice feeling…

Easy Pulao for a Busy Weeknight!

This recipe and the pictures for the post have been sitting in my laptop since several months. I know, I must do a better job at posting more regularly here, but this year has kept me crazily busy right from the start. My days are in general quite hectic with a full time job and…

Spicy Curried Cauliflower (Ready in just 20 mins!)

Week days only get more busier and crazier by the day leaving me with very less time to make dinner every night. We however, prefer to eat homemade food as much as possible and seldom eat out/do take outs. To me, it is also much important to include a good portion of vegetables in our meals everyday.  It is…

Figs and Dates Smoothie

Aren’t smoothies just amazing for breakfast? They can be so filling, nutritious and very very easy to make. The best part of it is that you can have them on the go.  If you can make them ahead of time and refigerate, your work day breakfast will be made so much more easier. Just fill…
