Chocolate Brownie Cake Recipe

Follow my blog with Bloglovin The kitchen’s closed – its SUNDAY! It all starts from Friday , or should I say, Monday itself. The wait for the glorious weekends. And “Sunday” is the King of all days. The one day we can actually enjoy – sleep as much as we like, have a late breakfast, or make it a two-in-one brunch, take naps in the afternoon , and then go out for dinner! Sounds perfect right? But with a house to clean , maids to manage , entire weeks tasks scheduled for Sunday , 2 kids (at home) trying to…

Sabudana Vada with peanut chutney

Sabudana Vada Recipe I was never a “ fasting “ kind of a person, even though my Mom and other elders, in the family, used to regularly fast throughout the year . Somehow that idea of consuming fruits,milk,potatoes and sabudana ONLY , the entire day, didn’t work for me. I felt hungrier on the fasting days than normal. Its psychological ( I know ), …. When you aren’t allowed to do something, you end up doing just that. I used to love having the delicious “fasting food”though, but used to have my normal meals too. Till date it’s the same…

Pizza Pockets Recipe

KIDS definitely know how to keep their moms on their toes. Be it free play, be it school work, be it getting ready for a party , or be it feeding them ( and that’s atleast 3-5 times a day!). I have really started to understand the phrase “ Eating with your eyes ” , after I started cooking for and feeding my kids. The food should look good, much before it tastes good. That’s their philosophy……..and I think it applies to all of us too. We would love to try out food that looks delicious, won’t you? So, with…

How to make Pani Puri at Home

This is as good as it gets! These gol gappas taste awesome! The “ paani” makes it a lip-smacking treat! And above all its really simple to make. I had tasted home-made gol gappas at my sisters place a few months back. Took the recipe and tried it yesterday myself!. It turned out amazing!

Misal Pav / Usal Recipe

Every now and then I find myself looking for something different to make . Specially in summers, as there are very few vegetables available . And it feels like everyday I am making either cabbage, beans or eggplants. This is when legumes and pulses save the day! They are healthy, tasty and easy to make. The only thing that is needed, is a little pre-planning. There is soaking and in some cases sprouting, involved in the preparation . But if you have the sprouts ready , it takes no time to put together a nice meal! A preparation on the…
