It  is  raining  cookies  everywhere.  Magazines, TV shows,  Fb,  Instagram. How  can I  not  bake  some  in  the  season  of  cookies. I  have  ventured  off  the  path  less  travelled. I  chose  the  savoury  variety.  Although   it  still  has  some  sugar,  the  carom  seeds  and  Asafoetida  impart  a  distinct  savoury  taste  to  it. Our  yearly  cookie

Did  you  know  there  is  a  whole  genre  of  food  in  Bengali  cuisine  called  “Teley  Bhaja”,  or  deep  fried.  Such  is  the  importance  of  deep  fried  food  that  just  by  saying  Teley  Bhaja,  one  can  safely  draw  the  attention  to  something  crunchy,  hot,  salty  and  of  course  fried  in  oil. There  can  be  some  dipping  sauce,  a

It  is  almost  a  Zucchini  exchange  here  friends.  I  cooked  my  share  of  curries,  included  them  in  salads.  When  the  Zucchinis  still  kept  coming  from  friends  and  coworkers,  I  had  to  look  for  new  ways  with  Zucchinis. I  found  a  simple  gluten  free  tart  crust  recipe  here.  I  modified  it  a  bit  by  switching  the

White chocolate dipped Apricots. Healthy treat for School

Planning  a  lunch  box  treat  for  kids  can  be  challenging.  It  has  to  be  healthy,  yummy,  easy  to  assemble,   keeping  in  mind  any  dietary  restrictions.   Repetition  won’t  go  well.  The  menu  may  need  a  change  depending  on  what  the  popular  TV  character’s  latest  preference  is  or  even  the  content  of  a  friend’s  lunch

There  is  something  about  the  monsoon  and  grilled  corn.  The  gentle  crackle  of  the  open  fire  on  which  the  road  side  vendor  constantly  rotates  the  cobs,  the  popping  of  the  corn,  the  ears  from  the  corn  piled  high  in  the  rickety  garbage  bag  set  on  a  corner  is  a  telltale  sign  of  monsoon  in  India.

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

When  the  winter  is  so  long  and  harsh,  there  is  no  way  but  to  adapt  to  the  surroundings.  Staying  indoors  only  leads  to  cabin  fever. If  you  are  like  me,  brought  up  in  a  no  snow  place,  it  doesn’t  come  easy.  I  always  prefer  the  spot  by  the  window  of  a  warm  room  to  gaze

Raise   your  hand  if  you  do  not  like  fries.  It  is  one  of  those  snacks  that  truly  is  hard  to  resist. Fries  can  be  of  potatoes,  sweet  potatoes,  yams  etc,  but  have  you  tried  Lotus  root  fries?  Not  available  year  round  ,  I  recently  found  them  in  the  Canadian  Superstore. This  sausage  shaped  vegetable
