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…

Watermelon Mint Cooler

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…

Lemon and Mint Rice

So the husband has been laughing at me ever since he saw me clicking pictures of the ubiquitous lemon rice. I tried explaining the concept of an A to Z blogging marathon where each letter needs a dish. But he was laughing too much to listen to me. Hmmph!  I love adding mint to the…

Mint & Coriander Dip

Continuing with my hung curd spree, today I am posting a quick mint and coriander dip with hung curd. We celebrated my daughter’s birthday over the weekend which is the reason I was left with some mint & coriander chutney as also a whole load of chips that feature in the photos. So I just…

Mint & Olive Bread

Mint Rice

Remember I was telling you about the new vegetable vendor in our complex who was giving out free tomatoes? Seems like too many people cast their evil jealous eye on me and hence that vendor has stopped coming. Boo hoo. Serves me right for shouting out ‘free tomatoes’ from the rooftops. Anyway, the last time…

Mint Pakoda

There is a nice cool breeze blowing now in Bangalore and it sometimes results in a mild fog in the morning. When you step out of the house you rub your hands together for the little warmth that it gives you. You want all meals to be piping hot and you know you shouldn’t leave…

Pudina Shorba

Mint or Pudina is a flavour I like to add to whatever dishes I can. Mint, be it fresh or dried, has a strong flavour and makes its presence felt beautifully even when added in small quantities. My go-to recipes for a fresh bunch of mint leaves is either mint rice or raita. So an almost…

Pea & Mint Soup

I have missed my peas terribly. Fresh peas were never available in Malaysia and I have a grudge against frozen ones. Don’t ask me why. It is a grudge, it is not supposed to be based on cold logic and reasonable arguments. Since they are my favorite and I could not have them for the…
