CHANNA MASALA | CHICKPEAS CURRY

Channa Masala, Chole, Chickpeas curry… Nope! I am not giving out the aliases for channa masala. I am officially experiencing the writer’s block! I typed out the aliases looking for inspiration. May be the spelling or the pattern of the word would inspire me? Sigh! I think it’s important to give you guys, an insight into the recipe and of course my thoughts. I have never been a writer. I can come with an idea & words too but stringing them together does not come as naturally though. But, blogging over 75 recipes, I have bettered the art of expressing… Continue reading

TURMERIC MILK | HEALING GOLDEN MILK

It’s time! Time for spring and the beautiful blossoming colors around us… Accchooooo! That’s spring allergies sneezing away our admiration for beauty 😀 Spring brings with it inflamed throats, allergies and red eyes; not to mention the spring showers and the flu virus with it. The only way you should fight the effects of nature is with nature itself (you know, like how a diamond can be cut by a diamond and all). Bringing to your rescue, the age old Turmeric milk popular by its modern name of the miracle golden milk!

I know I am sounding like a tacky infomercial but this is not up-selling, this happens to be me, expressing my renewed love (actually, I used to hate it, so is it renewed no-disgust?) for turmeric milk aka haldi doodh. Continue reading

Most of us might answer yes to this? Boy! Do I feel guilty later when I realize that the person was not bad after all. I would have done no harm or expressed dislike directly but I am consumed by guilt just for thinking dislike… Continue reading

BEER BATTERED ASPARAGUS WITH CILANTRO DIP

St Patrick’s day is coming up and I wanted to make something green, something with booze and something different that I haven’t tried before. My solution, beer battered asparagus! With a cilantro dip. Perfect! Few festivities that I enjoy in the US include St. Patrick’s day, Halloween & Black Friday. A True Indian, ain’t I? 😀 Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter is good but everyone celebrates these with their families. Cozy dinners at home. While that is quite nice, I miss the colors, crowd and festive celebratory environments of Indian festivals. I love watching people with their families, mothers, fathers, kids, their… Continue reading
