Rulavachi Bhakri | Mangalore style Rava Dosai

I cannot believe how fast this month is passing by. When I began this mega marathon, I only had a rough draft of a list of dishes I wanted to make. I figured that dosais are easy and can be made on a day to day basis. I did not realise that so many of…

Gavhache Dhirde

We are at the end of the first week of this Mega Marathon and today’s alphabet is ‘G’. I had quite a few choices for this alphabet but I wanted to cover as many states of India as possible and so I picked this Maharashtrian dish. There was also Ghavan from Maharashtra but I thought…

Nankhatai

The dishes I made for the last two days were things my daughter enjoys and is super happy when I bake. Today’s dish is something I have very fond memories of from when I was a child. My Mom is an awesome cook and can master most dishes and cuisines in a snap. Once she…

Garlic & Cheese Pretzels

When we lived in Malaysia, we frequented Auntie Anne’s for their delicious pretzels. The daughter and I would spend some time simply watching them behind the counter shape the pretzels with amazing accuracy and speed. She loves the soft pretzels as do I and we both always picked the savory ones as against the sweet…

Baked Mini Donuts

Today is the first day of a three day weekend. The daughter and I have an agreement that she eats whatever I make during school days and I make whatever she asks for during holidays. Most of the time it makes mt life easier though I understand I have to renegotiate this just before vacations….

Announcing Kid’s Delight – Baked Treats

I am hosting Srivalli’s Kid’s Delight event for a whole month – from August 16 – September 15. The theme for this event is Baked Treats. I realised I over emphasise the health aspect of food when it comes to feeding my daughter. I see that is the case for most parents and guardians. So…

Honey glazed carrots

For my third and final dish in the ‘One vegetable three ways’ theme, I chose to do the ever simple and ever popular dish -honey glazed carrots. Usually baby carrots are used for this recipe but since those aren’t available in my part of the world, I picked the bigger carrots and sliced them to…

Cheese & Oats Paniyaram

So I am back after a month though it seems like ages. In March, I had a very different perception of how April and May would turn out considering it is the daughter’s vacation time, but it wS hectic and chaotic in wholly different ways. Right from having a oil splash accident to help organise…

Banana Flittas

One advice I would like to give people who are yet to be married is that to look for someone with similar taste in food. A surprisingly lot of time and effort in your life is with regard to food – buying, making, eating. If you don’t agree on that, it is not going to…

Chia seed Cookies

Finally the cake is done, cut and eaten and I can pack up my cake fears and store it away until next year. I was worried the entire day about what the husband would think about the cake, if he would like it or not. The problem is that if he likes the cake, he…
