Stuffed Vegetables

Ever since my daughter changed schools, I have been having a tough time. The school provides her a lovely lunch and so now I am left to cooking lunches only for myself. If you are not aware, the most boring thing ever is cooking for one. So my strategy is to plan my blog posts…

Thakkali Sadam | Tomato Rice (No onion recipe)

Today we have the ubiquitous tomato rice for the alphabet ‘T’. I make tomato rice 3-4 times a month and I was honestly surprised that I had not posted this dish as yet. Maybe it was awaiting the mega marathon. As I mentioned previously, I am trying to perfect recipes without onion and garlic because…

Jollof Rice

So has it ever happened to you that you discover something and your life lights up? That happened to me when I discovered this tangy and flavorful Jollof Rice. This is such an easy dish to whip up and it is ‘Oh so tasty’ that you can’t believe. Jollof Rice is usually made with tomato…

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…

Spicy Hung Curd Dip

There are times when I get very hung up on certain dishes and ingredients and keep repeating them so often that the husband and daughter finally do an intervention only for me to get obsessed over the next dish. Now it is the hung cure time. I keep straining the curd in the cheesecloth and…

The stuffed crust pizza has been on my list forever. It is surprising why I haven’t done this before considering I bake pizzas quite regularly. I always plan to make this but then I get into the unnecessary health mode and run miles from the cheese. That was one of the main reasons I picked…

Oven roasted carrot soup

If you want to make anything delicious, I suggest you roast it in the oven. Tomatoes, yes…onions, yes….carrots, yes….sweet potato, yes….garlic ,yes. I think I have made my case. Roasting in the oven gives the dish a lovely aroma and an explosion of flavours that are otherwise not unearthed. I know I have two more…

Mixed Vegetable Sagu – Karnataka Special Meals

I am back to Blogging after what seems like ages though it’s actually been just a month. This week I will be posting three different thalis or combo menus. When Valli announced this theme, she was benevolent to allow us to post one recipe from our previous thali menus. So when I checked on the…

Moroccan Zaalouk

We try and explore the cuisine of a different country each month in our Blogging Marathon and I try to take up the theme, if only to bake a new kind of bread from a new country every month. This month’s cuisine is Moroccon and as I was browsing through various recipes, I realised how…

Bruschetta

I made Bruschetta as part of my Italian Lunch Spread. It is quick and easy to put together and will serve well as a snack or starter of choice for unplanned guests. It is an almost no cook dish and the ingredients are usually available at home and this can help brighten up a meal…
