Love how rich and diverse Indian culture is. And this diversity in culture brings in diversity in food as well. There is a big range of food and cooking styles in India. It is so different and varied across all the states in India. Did you know we have about 40,000 varieties of rice in…

Coconut Water Mojito

It’s terribly hot in Delhi right now and I am barely surviving in this heat. I am spending as little time in the kitchen as possible. What if friends come over in such weather? Someone like me will search for easy things to do. I usually make easy salads and pitchers of cool drinks to…

Ragi-Banana-Walnut Bread

There are some days when you crave for something sweet. Yeah, even a non-sweet fan like me. And on days like these, I have to think a lot about what to make. It, of course, needs to be healthy and made from simple yet yummy ingredients. Since I had a few super ripe bananas with…

Lauki ke Kofte (Bottle Gourd Fritters in Tomato Gravy)

Summer is finally here and we have a new set of veggies and fruits to deal with.  With all the kaddus, tinde, bhindi, tori and lauki (pumpkins, gourds and okra) around, we don’t have a lot of choices. Which is why I love to innovate and keep it interesting. Making new varieties of veggies…

Rava Dosa (Semolina Crepes)

It gives you immense pleasure to try something new, isn’t it. And especially when the experiment goes right.  This is what happened when I tried Rava Dosa recently and the result was amazing. I did spoil the first 2 dosas to be honest but then learnt the trick and I am here to share…
