There  was  a  time  when  ‘my  mother  knew  everything’.  Then  came  the  time  when  I  locked  horns  with  her.  As  time  passed  and  I  had  my  family,  she  happily  gave  me  a  hand  with  babysitting   my  children,  answering  long  distance  calls  with  a  recipe  that  I  was  struggling  with,  home  remedies  or  guided  me

I  am  still  on  aquafaba  high.  Remember  those  Meringues  that  I  used  for  the  bird’s  nest  from  a  couple  posts  back?  I  wanted  to  try  macarons  this  time.  Their  pastel  colour,  innumerable  flavours  and  of  course  the  store  Laduree  in  the  city  of  lights  always  drew  me  to  these  delicate  beauties. Now  if  there  can

Remember  the  saying  ” Don’t  judge  a  book  by  its  cover?”  It  can’t  be  more  true  than  in  case  of  Chia  seeds.  Who  knew  that  these  innocuous  looking  seeds   were  a  powerhouse  of  nutrients ?  No  wonder  they  are  being  called   “Superfood”. Native  to  Mexico  and  Guatemala,  these  seeds  are  from  the  plant

Internet  is  full  of  new  ideas.  Sitting  in  the  comfort  of  our  home,  the  whole  world  opens  up  in  front  of  our  eyes. Aquafaba  has  been  popping  up  for  sometime  now.  The  Chatelaine  magazine  had  a  beautiful  front  cover  on  ‘Meringue  kisses’,  last  year.  I  had  my  eyes  on  them  and  wanted  to  give  them

For  those  that  frequent  my  blog,  are  familiar  with  my  unconditional  love  affair  with  Indian  street  food,  I  would  like  to  introduce  you  to  this  one  of  a  kind  of  Burger.  There  is  something  about  this  exact   titration  of  the  sweet,  sour,  salty  and  hot  that  calls  my  name.  This  is  my  “Umami”.

The  word   ‘ Waffles’  conjures  a  picture  of  a  plate  piled  high  with  these  beauties  ,  topped  with  cream,  some  berries  and  honey  dripping  down  the  corners.  Breakfast  is  served.  All  is  well  unless  there  are  family  members  or  friends  that  have  dietary  restrictions. That  is  when  the  idea  of  savoury  variety  comes  handy.

Condiments,  dips  and  chutneys  are   like  the  supporting  actors  or  actresses.  On  their  own  they  are   plain,  but  they  prop   up the  main  actors  and  together  elevate  them  to  a  new  level  or  in  this  case  the  dish.   Sweet,  hot,  or  nutty,   the  choices  are  many.   Pair  it  with

There  is  no  denying  that  in  today’s  busy  world  smoothies  have  become  an  ideal  snack  or  meal-on-the-go.  With  the  daily  time-crunch  we  need  more food  that  is  nutritious,  easy  to  carry,  faster  to  inhale   consume.  Smoothies  are  here  to  stay. The  flavour  permutations  and  combinations  are  endless:   fruit,  nuts  or  nut  butter,  yoghurt  or

The  world  of  Instagram  is  full  of  delicious  pictures.  I  am  being  drawn  towards  food  in  a  bowl.  The  varieties  are  mind  boggling.  Be  it  salad  or  smoothie   bowls,  the  choices  frankly  are  too  many.  It  almost  feels  like  an  artist’s  palette.   The  combination  of  colours,  the  selection  of  ingredients  are  done  keeping
