Cucumber Cake

Posted on March 13, 2016

4 Ingredient Eggless Cake!! Delicious and oh, so healthy!! Living in a foreign country thousands of miles away from the home you grew up in presents a multitude of challenges; the biggest one being homesickness. But for me food is the great equalizer and helps alleviate that feeling to some extent by bringing back fond memories. When I look back in time one dish that takes me back to my childhood and into my grandma’s arms is this sweet cucumberRead More

Roasted Chicken Pizza

Roasted Chicken Pizza

Posted on March 6, 2016

Handmade pizza topped with roasted chicken, green peppers, mushrooms and onions- quite a mouthful! What do you do when it is wifey dear’s birthday and you are forced to change your carefully laid plans? The answer is to take your wife shopping, get her favorite dish for dinner and most importantly pray to GOD that she isn’t too mad at you. In my house PIZZA is the magic elixir, which gets me out of sticky situations like this. This timeRead More

Chicken Burrito

Chicken Burrito

Posted on February 29, 2016

A freshly made tortilla filled with roasted chicken, veggies, jeera rice, salsa and cheese. In India cricket is a religion and everything and I mean everything takes a backseat to this game. So what happens when this game casts a spell on hubby dear and renders him incapable of doing any kind of work? Not only that hubby wants to have a couple of his buddies over for the big game. There is only one option.. wifey dearest has toRead More

Whole Wheat Empanadas

Whole Wheat Empanadas

Posted on February 21, 2016

Flaky hot pockets  with a spicy, tangy Spinach and Cottage Cheese Filling. If I were to ask what are three of the most universally loved dishes in the world, I am going to get a variety of answers (WOULD DEFINITELY LIKE TO HEAR THEM IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!!!!). My personal trifecta of favorites would be PIZZA, PASTA and last but not the least EMPANADAS. Having already made the first two I decided to focus on those flaky pastries stuffed with delicious goodies, “EMPANADAS”.

Salmon Curry

Salmon stewed in a tangy, spicy coconut and tomato curry. Happy Valentine’s Day Y’All!!!! Well what would you do if your valentine wanted to stay home on this special day??? The answer to this question is simple. GET CREATIVE!!! That is exactly what I did. My plan of action involved cooking up something which wifey dear has not eaten in a while; “FISH CURRY” inspired by flavors of her hometown. The fish was tender, the curry was spicy with just theRead More

Fresh Chickpea Falafel

Fresh Chickpea Falafel

Posted on February 8, 2016

Delicious bite size falafel, good on their own or just load them into a wrap and start munching! I had my own EUREKA moment yesterday. I am talking about the time when you walk in a grocery store, see an ingredient and immediately come up with a recipe. Accordingly I walked into the supermarket saw fresh chickpeas and made falafel!!! I know, I know its chickpeas and falafel. There is nothing ingenious in that. But one bite of these pint-sizedRead More

Kale Fritters

Crispy Kale Fritters, A perfect tea time snack. For the past few days it feels as if spring has arrived early in Dallas. On lazy spring weekends I for one would like nothing better than to enjoy the cool breeze on the patio with my favorite novel in one hand and a piping hot snack in the other. If that snack happens to be these mouth-wateringly delicious “KALE FRITTERS” then there is nothing better. Favorite novel, perfect teatime snack, theRead More

Veggie Meatball Sub

Posted on January 24, 2016

Tender and Delicious Veggie Meatball sub with a Tangy Tomato and Yogurt Sauce. My football obsession that began last week with the start of the NFL playoffs continues. I simply cannot think of anything else these days other than game day food. Last week it was a BURGER and this week it is a sandwich. Not just any sandwich but a “VEGGIE MEATBALL” sub. The tasty little meatballs have a crispy exterior and a soft interior whose spiciness is beautifully complimentedRead More

Lentil Sliders

Posted on January 18, 2016

Spicy Lentil Sliders with a creamy Cilantro Mayo.  Ladies and gentlemen it is that time of the year when I cannot think of anything else other than football. When the topic of football comes up how can the food get left behind??? I personally think the words gameday food and burgers go hand in hand. When I say burgers most of you are going to think about all kinds of meat burgers instead of Lentil Sliders. But these mini bitesRead More

Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup

Posted on January 11, 2016

A rich and luscious Chicken Soup with bold flavors. It has been quiet cold here in Dallas the last few days. Mix in one full day of rain and it becomes a combination that I absolutely dislike. On such dull depressing days I just want to come home and have a steaming hot bowl of soup waiting for me. If that rich luscious soup is an opulent meal all by itself then I am definitely in food heaven. This sumptuousRead More
