Spicy Buns

For the third and final day of the ‘Roll and fold like a bun’ theme, I have some spicy buns. I was so tempted to call these quick buns because these are made with yeast. After the sourdough spree I had, the fact that I can actually complete the bread from start to finish in…

Sourdough Burger Buns

My laptop is acting crazy and making weird sounds. Looks like I have to give up on it and get a new one. The good part is that I had thankfully taken pictures on my phone and I am able to use them here. Else it would be tragic that, for once, I was ready…

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…

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…

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…
