These deep fried fritters not only are the perfect tea-time snack but also warm your heart on a cold, blustery day. This week we had the first inkling of fall here in Dallas. The temperatures dropped considerably and it seemed that relief from the oppressive heat was finally on the way. Ahh the joy of fall was very much short-lived since the balmy weather lasted for just 2 days. The bright spot was that the weather gave me a chanceRead More

Posted on October 9, 2016

Super easy protein packed breakfast will help you turbo-charge your day. Y’all may have noticed from my last few posts that I have been on a bit of a health kick lately. This week I had promised myself that I was going to thoroughly indulge myself. The problem is that it takes me more than two weeks to get rid of my obsessions (CHUCKLES!!!). Don’t get mad but I am back with another healthy recipe with “LENTILS” as the star of theRead More

Mexican Golgappa

Posted on July 31, 2016

One of a kind Indian-Mexican GOLGAPPA with a flavorful Avocado Salsa stuffed inside a crispy puri. What is a poor husband going to do if his wife becomes obsessed with a particular recipe?? The answer is absolutely NOTHING, NO BUENO, NADA. He has only one option i.e. to keep eating the same dish over and over till the missus either gives up or perfects the recipe. This is what yours truly had to go through for the past few daysRead More

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Posted on July 17, 2016

A wonderfully simple Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a spicy, tangy Potato, Pea and Cottage Cheese filling. The ideas for new recipes can come from a lot of places. But I believe the best ones are those influenced by our own memories and experiences. This recipe is inspired by the most wonderful period of my life; my COLLEGE days. It is simply a SANDWICH. Not just any sandwich mind you but a GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH. It is a little tangy, aRead More

Chilled Carrot Soup

Posted on July 5, 2016

Simple yet delicious Carrot Soup, a perfect way to beat the heat. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July just like I did. The only bad thing about such a terrific weekend was the 100 degree heat. It literally felt like your shirt would be soaked in 10 minutes the moment you stepped outside. But it wasn’t going to deter us from making the most of this weekend. There was something else which also helped us combat theRead More

A delightful combination of Grilled Chicken Tikkis smothered in a Spicy Chickpea Curry. It seems to me as if I start cooking a certain type of food I get obsessed with it for a few weeks. My latest obsession: the Street Food of the city I was born in; MUMBAI.   There are a variety of dishes to look for inspiration and you cannot go wrong with any of them. My inspiration for this recipe was the popular “RAGDA PATTIES” whichRead More

Delicious ground chicken cooked in a rich tomato sauce served on a toasted bun. Happy Father’s Day to not only the person who was responsible for my love of cooking but to all the great dad’s throughout the world. While growing up my dad took me on a bunch of foodie adventures and exposed me to a lot of different cuisines. But for some odd reason my favorite remains to this day the Mumbai street food. Not only is itRead More

Classic IndoChinese fusion: Pan-seared Paneer and Veggies cooked in a mixture of Soy Sauce and Szechuan Sauce, wrapped in a Whole-Wheat Roti. My 4 years in college has had an immense impact on my life. Not only did it shape me into the person that I am today but it also allowed me to build friendships to last a lifetime. Even after leaving India all of us have kept in touch and more often than not reminisce about our collegeRead More

Spicy sprouted bean curry topped with a savory mixture called farsan. The technological advances these days have made it possible for me to speak to my family members sitting 5000 miles away in India. Not only can I keep in touch with my loved ones but they inadvertently end up giving me ideas for my blog posts as well (CHUCKLES!!!). So when my cousin said over the phone that he is eating a delicious moth bean curry I made thatRead More
