?It was during one of my routine trips to the supermarket that I spotted Tandoori Mayo. Naturally I was intrigued and bought the same. After tasting, I decided to try making it at home. It didn’t taste exactly as the store bought one, but I am pleased with the result.
If you wish, you may use ready made Tandoori Masala.
?Even though I don’t consume wine, lately I have making different varieties of wine. My latest attempt is Orange Wine, a recipe which was given by Lilian aunty, our family friend. The oranges used in this wine are small, loose jacket oranges. The picture you see above were taken soon after bottling. Hence the cloudy look. As it rests, the wine will get clarity.
Here are a few pointers one needs to keep in mind. The jars and bottles used for wine making should be sterilised and free from moisture. Always use coloured bottles to store wine.?
I have always been drawn to trying out something new than preparing the usual menu. So I’m always on the lookout for that inspiration. This time, I was inspired by my little sister. During our chat session, she was going on about a unique jam she tasted. Bacon Jam. Though I’ve seen them on TV, I never got the opportunity to taste them. Naturally,it piqued my curiosity. As expected, next thing to do was to google for a recipe. I followed Martha Stewart’s recipe with minor tweaking. All of us loved it. You can use in sandwiches, burgers, rolls etc.View Full
?Couple of weeks back we had been to Coorg, where we stayed at a friend’s Coffee Estate. While talking to Lilian aunty, our hostess, the conversation veered towards cooking. She told me that she had a Rice Wine recipe and that she would share it with me the next morning. I was pleasantly surprised when she handed over her recipe book, first thing in the morning. Such a wonderful gesture !! She recommended a few more recipes from her book and asked me to write them down.
Once back home, the first thing I did, was to make sure I had all the ingredients for the Rice Wine.
Here are a few pointers one needs to keep in mind. Any white rice can be used for this recipe. The jars and bottles used for wine making should be sterilised and free from moisture. Always use coloured bottles to store wine.
Usually when we buy fish, I fry it the traditional Kerala Style. But this time, I had already made up my mind on trying the ‘Goan Style’. I had heard a lot about the Recheado Masala. As usual, I searched my favourite blog, Goan Food Recipes. I was under the impression that it would take a long time to prepare this. It turned out that all I had to do was, to assemble all the ingredients and grind. Voila !! The Masala was ready 🙂 I halved the recipe and tweaked it a bit to suit my liking. I used…View Full
