Cheesy Ropes

This week’s theme at the Blogging Marathon is tea time snacks. This reminds me of this awesome samosa kachori shop in Bangalore which was very close home. Usually the husband would walk to the store around 4 pm during weekends and get fresh and hot kachoris (for me) and samosas (for him) and we would have those with tea. I miss that shop and the … Continue reading Cheesy Ropes

Bhendi Jaipuri #MonsoonMojo

If you understand Tamil and are interested in cooking then you must watch this show on Vijay TV – Samayal Samayal (Cooking Cooking). It is hosted by Venkatesh Bhat from Accord Metropolitan, Chennai. I initially started watching it because I found him cute. Yup, superficial me. But then I found his recipes to be easy and his style absolutely no nonsense. He wasn’t the kind … Continue reading Bhendi Jaipuri #MonsoonMojo

Nutella Strawberry Hand Pies

Edit  Edit    Our love affair with Nutella is going strong. Today I decided to up the ante a little and bake something with Nutella.

Gulab Jamun Mix Muffins

I write this blog post mainly for two reasons – 1. Blogging Marathon time again. yay! 2. More importantly, to serve me as an eternal reminder – Never trust the Husband with grocery shopping. Like never ever! We travel 100 kms once a month to the ‘nearest’ Indian grocery store. The scene is usually a very crowded shop that is as big as the inside … Continue reading Gulab Jamun Mix Muffins

Vendhiyam Dosa / Fenugreek Crepe

This is one of my favorite dosa recipes. The best part is that it’s healthy as well and hence I can shut out all the guilt that comes from eating other favorite foods like buttery crossiants for example. Also, it’s a cooling dish which is the need of everyday in this tropical heat! The not so good part is the amount of time it takes … Continue reading Vendhiyam Dosa / Fenugreek Crepe
