Matar ki Kachori

Peas are such a delightful veggie. Love their sweetness and crunch. They add a great dimension to any food you add them to. They are also a no-waste veg. You could use their pods in as many ways as you may use its seeds themselves. Hopefully, you have seen my pea pod chutney and Shammi…

Red Bell Pepper – Tomato – Basil Pasta

I love making variations of pasta all the time since I love eating pasta all the time.  Now red bell pepper – tomato – cashew is a classic combination and makes the pasta rich and creamy and grants a beautiful reddish-orange hue to it. Since I had a lot of basil leaves in the fridge…

Pumpkin Cupcakes

Since I was celebrating the humble Pumpkin and it’s Pumpkin season everywhere, I decided to make Pumpkin cupcakes. I made the super healthy version by roasting the pumpkin, using whole wheat and adding brown sugar instead of refined sugar and the result was amazing. Mum had given me a big pumpkin and I roasted it….

Pear-Orange Crumble

Friends were coming over for lunch the other weekend and I hardly had any time to make an elaborate dessert. But I had these beautiful plums that I got from the farmer’s market and decided to make a quick and crunchy Crumble. Since I wanted to make a healthy version, I replaced regular sugar with…

Peach-Tomato-Cheese Caprese Salad

I love summers for all the fresh salad option it generates. Aren’t there a lot of combinations and flavours possible. And it’s all exciting. I love mixing veggies and fruits up and coming up with new flavours and experimenting with them. One such gorgeous salad is a Caprese salad. I am a big fan of…

Bell Pepper, Olive and Rosemary Focaccia

Focaccia is an Italian flatbread and makes the best open toasts and deconstructed burgers. I love Focaccia for its sheer texture and versatility. You could make the classic stripped down version with just olive oil and salt. But If you love veggies in every place like I do, then I am sure you would be…

Gujarati Dhokla

Can I confess that I love Dhokla? It is such a great breakfast and snack option. It’s filling and so moreish. I like to make it when I am having guests over, on a weekend or anytime it pleases me as it’s so simple and easy to make. Love the soft spongy dhokla along with…

Veg Hakka Noodles

I love Veg Hakka Noodles. They are so handy and can be had out of little boxes on the go and also serve as your main course at the same time. They always come in handy when I am struggling with what to make. I made a simple version with little oil and lots of…

Finally, got to write these eggless donut recipes and share these today. Here are the 2 versions: Chocolate ganache Cinnamon sugar PREPARATION TIME: 1.5…

Mezze Platter

I love Lebanese food. Mezze food platters are my all-time go-to dish for when friends come over and there is heaps of food that I want to serve. I love the contrast of the fried falafels with the bland pita bread, tangy and creamy hummus and the super fresh tzatziki dip. Here’s what I made…
