?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.
During our stay in Chandigarh, we had been to the Punjab Grill restaurant. After the meal, we were served Paan shots. I loved the taste of it and thought of trying my hand at it some time later. It had totally slipped off my mind, till I came across a review about Punjab Grill. I had some Homemade Gulkhand in stock. So after getting the betel leaves, I started off with my experiment. Along the way, I decided to change the track and make a mousse instead of the shots. On tasting, D was of the opinion that it required…View Full
Eggless Coffee Cake was something I had tried few years back. As I am not particularly fond of microwave cooking, I hadn’t attempted it after that. Recently, one of my friends spotted the picture of it in my Facebook timeline and asked for the recipe. This was followed by a few more requests. That’s when I decided to make it again. It took some time for me to recollect the source of the recipe but finally managed to find it. The recipe I followed is from Apy Cooking. I decorated the cake with coffee flavoured whipped cream and chocolate sauce….View Full

What a wonderful combination !!!View Full
D is a bit hesitant when it comes to eating Rice. Being a Mom, one needs to think of tricks to get your child to eat, right? Though there are options like Tomato Rice, Coconut rice etc, he’s not particularly fond of them. Next option??? Go International 😛 Yesterday was one such day, where I had to find a way to present the leftover Rice in a new way. As I was preparing Thai Style Stuffed Squid, I decided to prepare Thai Fried Rice. I love this recipe because it’s very easy to prepare. In this recipe, I have used…View Full
As a blogger, the prime aspect I enjoy is the feedback I receive from my readers. There are quite a few of them who gives feedback on a regular basis. Some of them ask doubts regarding recipes. My effort is to try and help them in whatever way I can. The other day a reader had attempted baking wholewheat cookies that didn’t turn out as she wanted it to be. She wanted to know what went wrong. As it had been a while since I baked wholewheat cookies, the best thing I could offer was to try out the recipe…View Full
Pazham Pori is a snack item that reminds me of my childhood days. This used to be one of the many snacks Amma used to prepare when we got back from school. The other day while buying groceries from a nearby store, my eyes fell on Nendra Pazham with which this snack is made. While making Pazham Pori, make sure the banana is ripe. You may use all purpose flour or wheat flour for the batter.View Full
