My adventure with Swiss Chard – Dal with Swiss Chard/Silver Beet

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I am a cautious person by nature and try and avoid taking too many risks. Maybe it is my inherent nature that I don’t like taking any risks or maybe it is middle class upbringing that stops me venturing into uncharted territories. Not that I have not taken risks in life, trust me I have ...


A cheesy snack for a rainy evening – Vegetable Toastie 2

1-IMG_5992

So it rained in Perth yesterday. Rains in Perth are a unheard phenomenon, it hardly rains here. It is like the guest that visits your home once in a blue moon for a few minutes, promises to come back but never shows up, making you feel that you have done something wrong to make the ...


The very unsocial Lamb Korma 6

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

“Recipes are just descriptions of one person’s take on one moment in time. They’re not rules.” — Mario Batali We are not very social people. I don’t mean to say we are anti-social and don’t like people at all but we do not socialize a lot. We don’t do late night parties and gatherings and don’t ...

I think we can all agree that Indian food is extremely versatile. We can make a meal using 1 main ingredient in 100's of ways and still never get tired of it. If you don't believe me just take something as humble as Yogurt/Curd or Dahi as we call it. We use it as base ...

The thing with life is that when it happens everything else just takes a backseat. Dreams, aspirations, passions and everything else that once was dear to us suddenly becomes unimportant and not meaningful. And sadly my little blog has been hit by Life.

Apple & Pear Galette with Ricotta cheese & Saffron 6

IMG_3947

Let me tell you something cooking food and writing about food are two different things all together.

I go through days of feeling uninspired and feeling completely lost for words, where I have no idea what ...


The perfect Oatmeal & Chocolate chip cookies 4

IMG_3725

We did not have an oven when I was growing up so never really ate cookies. I don't have any fond memories of standing in my mother's kitchen and licking the cookie dough or shaping them into funny shapes. The closest to cookies I would assume that we ate were biscuits, unless we had relatives ...
