Masala stuffed Buns

I love all breads but I have a special soft corner for stuffed buns and breads. It makes for sumptuous snacks and the possibilities are endless. Stuffed buns are my favorite gateway to finish up leftovers and clear out the refrigerator. Though I did not use leftovers for this one since I had guests over…

Chocochip Cookies

I had to check my blog multiple times to confirm I had not posted this chocochip cookies before. I have made these cookies so many times and everyone who has tasted them has fallen in love. The search for an eggless version is on but sadly I am yet to get such a chewy and…

Bread Bowl

This bread bowl ticks off another item on my bucket list or should I say bread list. I have been meaning to make a bread bowl but somehow never got to it. Like we know, Bake-a-thon is made just to correct such situations. The best part of it was I got the daughter to have…

Dryfruit Cardamom Cookies

After that spicy coriander bread, today is for the sweet and simple cardamom cookies. I am not much of a sweet bake person.

Basil & Garlic Focaccia

The final dish for this week’s theme of Global Cuisine is this beautiful Basil & Garlic Focaccia. It is one of the most popular breads of Italy and has undergone so many changes over the years. The traditional focaccia does not have any toppings or has┬á minimal toppings with the most popular one being onion…

Veggie Calzone

For the second day of the Global Cuisine theme, I have another bread from Italy – the calzone. It is a veggie calzone and the perfect way to sneak in all veggies that your family would not eat. Calzones are pizzas with the toppings used as stuffings. Why I like this bread? A healthier version…
