Taco Try-Out

This is my first try at Tacos. Kids and I had fun making them. Lots of fun and mess..

Crunchy Bread Rolls

My family loves fried crunchy stuff. When I make cutlets, samosas, spring rolls etc., they fly off the plates. Because of my weight issue, I do not make it often. I tend to eat when I make it and when everyone is eating and when there are left overs (I don’t like wasting food!). Making fried…

Chicken Donuts

Being in the blogosphere is overwhelming. All those great posts out there, scares me to put my words out there! One thing I am aiming to achieve this year is ‘Courage’. I seem to be a courageous person to many people, but I am scared of many many things! An audience is the most scary thing…

Salted Caramel Banana Loaf Cake

Banana is a favorite fruit in my home. Since it is gone as soon as it is placed in my fruit bowl, chance of getting it to the black dot stage for the banana cake is near to impossible. If I need to make banana cake, I either buy bananas that has started to get…

Pound Cake on my mind

I am a struggling blogger. I like to think about food, write about food and all my photographs are at its best when it’s about food. But how do I blog regularly? I want to do it consistently. Strategizing this in mind, and shuffling lots of things that are there on my plate right now…

No Puff Potpie

Paneer Roti

With all the things I have been posting, you might be thinking I have ditched my diet… No! I have not. This diet is my personal best. Thanks to my trainer, Iram from S.Q.U.A.T.S,  the changing meal plans have helped me and my BH to keep on to the diet. Yes, we are both in…

PopCorn Balls

My kids are hardcore junk eaters, they love eating sweet things (got it from my Better Half – BH). Baking cookies and cakes came to me because of them. I have never been a conscious nutritionist. My food mantra is that, if you eat in moderation –  no food is bad. All said, you will…

Shammi Kebab

During a Ramadan, last year I think. Ninu and I were discussing  about iftar snacks. She told me about this Kebab which was easy to make with the Shaan Shammi Kebab spice mix. Unfortunately, I did not make for that Ramadan. After a couple of months,on a shopping expedition to lulu, I saw this spice…

Paneer Biriyani – On a diet

I AM ON A DIET!!!!!! Being a foodie, being on diet means getting a jail term for me!!  I cannot imagine restricting myself on anything that relates to food. When this love of my life started to get under my skin and started dictating how my life had to be led, I did not like…
