Homemade Chickpea Pasta

Cauliflower Rice Biryani

I love the fact that this humble vegetable “cauliflower” is causing so many ripples in the food world or may be I was living under the rock up until now because all I could think of making with a cauliflower was “gobhi matar” (cauliflower and peas dry veg preparation). Although still a bit new for…

Polka Dots Baked Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese is one of those “full of guilt” dishes which you can’t resist making and eating at least on days when you need comforting. And we are all allowed those cheat days, aren’t we? I have tried making this as healthy as possible. We can’t avoid the “Mac” and the “Cheese” in the…

Vegetable Au Gratin

My craving for a warm comfort dish on a cold rainy day led me to a quick baked dish which I have grown up eating. My mom would make awesome baked dishes, cakes and make world cuisines after watching cookery shows. My food journey actually started with my mom being my inspiration. She maintained a diary,…

White Matar Hummus & Baked Kulcha

What do you do when you want to make a famous street food but don’t want the elaborate and fatty process associated with it? You, reinvent, create and enjoy the same flavors but guilt free. This is exactly what I have done with the famous “matar kulcha”. Made a quick hummus and baked kulcha’s in…

Mexican Burrito Bowl

I love to eat out of a bowl these days. It’s not just the convenience but also the satisfaction of having everything together in one bowl. I make my bowls complete with protein, a fresh component like a salad, served on a bed of carbs (or not – try cauliflower rice instead) and a sauce or…

Paneer Tikka Skewers With Skillet Bread

Tikka preparation is one of the few Indian preparations which are world famous and are never out of vogue! And it can be made at home as well with ease. Yes, the smokiness factor will be a little less but who cares if you get to make at home, in the convenience of you own…

Paneer Steak with Stir Fry Vegetables and Cauliflower Rice

I have been leaning towards healthier, gravy-less preparations in my kitchen for dinner these days. It has changed the way I look at food now. We eat more of what matters than filling up our tummy with gravy with low nutritional value. So instead of making Kadhai Paneer, I made grilled paneer with stir fry…

Khichri with Achari Masala Mix Vegetable

Khichri is the ultimate comfort food. It’s the super daddy of all comfort foods at least in my kitchen. We don’t need a reason to eat khichri, although there are many: too tired to cook today, don’t have time to cook, feeling a bit sick, missing mom’s food, nothing at home to cook, and the…
