Eggless Herbed Scones

The daughter loves scones and so do I. It reminds me of the endless stories from my childhood when I read Enid Blyton tales with secret picnics, afternoon teas and midnight feasts and almost everyone of them having scones on the menu. As a child I was so curious about what scones are and how…

Quick Loaf

I have been forever trying to find a bread recipe that can be done with a single rise and yet have the lightness and taste of the yeasted loaf. Finally I am so glad I found this recipe. It works like a charm. I made a few modifications to it but it worked nevertheless. So…

Cumin flavoured Cookies

The house is beginning to resemble a home somewhat though I have to yet be able to locate everything I packed. The good news is I figured out where the camera and laptop are and so this week’s posts are kind of better than last week’s. This is first of my three posts for the…

Announcing Kids’ Delight – Savory Bakes

I am hosting Srivalli’s Kid’s Delight event for a whole month – from June 16 – July 15. The theme for this event is Savory Bakes. Whenever I tell people I bake, the most frequently asked question is if I would bake a cake for them. If you know me you know how much I…

Coconut Tamarind Chutney

The daughter’s school begins tomorrow and I am the nervous wreck. The husband finds it hilarious that she has to face a new environment and people and I am the one stressing. But I guess it goes with the territory. I always thought that the storage in my previous apartment was less but now I…

Coriander Peanut Chutney

Lots of things have been happening this weekend past month. The daughter secured admission in a nice school far from where we stay. That required a move in to the new locality which incidentally is close to the husband’s work place. Since everything happened kind of last minute, I have been running around like a…

Cucumber Mint Cooler

I love mint. Just saying it if it is not evident already. So I keep adding it to whatever dish I can and I am mostly pleased with the results. Cucumber is another best friend for summers. We have it in multiple ways like raita, salad, etc. But I always find my daughter eating less…

Panagam

As I continue to bemoan the summer, I have another summer cooler today which is a huge relief from the heat. Panagam is a jaggery, lemon and ginger drink which is an instant refresher and easily made at home. Usually we make Panagam for Ram Navami but I love this one and so I continue…

Watermelon Mint Cooler

After the massive mega marathon of Biryani / Pulao / khichadis, we are back to the regular marathons. My theme for this week is Summer Coolers which is just perfect for this scorching heat I am being subject to. If the Bangalore heat was not enough, I had to make a trip to Chennai and…

A to Z Biryani / Pulao / Khichadi Round up

This is my round up for the A to Z Mega Blogging Marathon for the theme, ‘Biryani / Pulao / Khichadi’. I had a whole lot of fun doing this and discovered many new dishes and flavours during this one month of non stop blogging. The biggest lesson has been that anything tastes delicious with…
