Chickpea Pancake Sandwich Stack

I love a perfectly grilled masala sandwich! It’s the ultimate food when you want a quick bite. It’s perfectly spiced with a sandwich masala powder, bread grilled to perfection, crispy and moist at the same time, layered with vegetable slices, potatoes, cottage cheese and layers and layers of that wonderful mint chutney. You don’t need…

Indian Misal Bunny Chow

My memories of my decade long stint at Mumbai is made up of my first job, my first rented apartment, first room mates, my marriage, my baby’s birth and many more firsts but the highlight has been the food especially street food! I still can’t forget the road trip with my best friends and the…

Watermelon Pizza

Come summer and the craving for fresh, cold watermelon never ends! I can never get bored of watermelon! I am constantly looking for newer ways of serving the “Queen of summer fruit” (I just made that up! But don’t you agree?)! Watermelon with chat masala or some rock salt, watermelon juice, watermelon slushie! You name…

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…

Shakshuka with chickpeas

Kick start the day with these velvety, creamy eggs in a perfect tangy tomato chickpea sauce. It’s a staple breakfast now at our place. When I first came across this Moroccan dish, I was a bit reluctant to make it because the egg was visible and since I have grown up not consuming eggs on…

Pickled Avocado Spread

I don’t really know what the Avocado craze is all about! I am not a big fan but the avocraze got me thinking! Got myself an avocado again and was staring at it for inspiration and then it hit me! Since Avocado is very neutral in taste, why not add a zing with pickle! I…

Shepherd’s Pie Surprise Bites

A hearty, warm, comfort food which is a meal on it’s own. Humble Shepherd’s pie is traditionally made with red meat and is topped with mashed potatoes and baked to perfection. It’s a complete meal and is very filling. I made a vegetarian version with black chickpeas, vegetables and made them bite sized.    …

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…

Rainbow Crostini Bytes

You eat with your eyes first and the visual appeal is more when you add colors to your daily food platter. Much like painting, a food plate is also a canvas ready to be painted with our imagination and creativity. I was almost compulsively stuck with the idea of rainbow food but without the artificial colors. Artificial…

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,…
