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…

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…

But it’s tough because Nutella hardly ever goes anywhere from the jar except directly into my mouth. It’s as if my hand, on…
