About Me

Food blogging is like cooking for a large family. There are members who get drawn by its aroma, while there are others who hang around in anticipation; and yet there a select few who even enter your kitchen and check you out.

Whichever way you look at it, food creates love.

A Very Happy New Year !! Phew I blinked it was 2018 and I blink again and we have reached 2019.

A lot has happened over this last year or rather I should say over the last year and a half ! Blogging took a back seat.

Little M came into our lives.....and everything around...

It is called the mother of all dips. Yes today I share the recipe of homemade Mayonnaise !

Pesto  - The Fragrant Italian Sauce !! 


Pesto is one of the earliest sauces / dips I started making. It is my absolute personal favourite and my 'go to' sauce everytime I'm in a fix, so when in doubt, use pesto !!

The woody fragrance of pine nuts blending with the...

While I love my daals (lentils), Green Gram was never a favourite. Rather I always seem to shy away from it and my mother would always be after my case for running away from the green moong, listing down all its health benefits in one breath...every single time !!

So fi...

Mushroom Dip. Serve it hot. Serve it cold. Yeah... serve it the way you like it. It's an all year dip. I serve this warm-n-fuzzy with nachos or pita on cold wintry evenings and serve it chilled in summers. This also makes for excellent sandwich spreads too (that was my...

From the chimichurri of South America I'm back to the middle east. Today it is Baba Ghanoush made from the humble eggplant.

This smoky dip is a favourite of the Arabs and is often eaten with khubz or pita bread. Traditionally baba ghanoush would have other added vegetab...

Chimichurri !! Trying saying this word without it bringing a smile to your face. I love the ring in the word itself, imagine what the dip would actually do !!

So chimichurri is a burst of 'Freshness" with fresh herbs like Parsley-n-Cilantro and some Jalapenos.

Today it is Tzatziki. An authentic Greek Dip. This tangy refreshing summer dip compliments grilled meats beautifully. Serve it with the main course or just as a dip with appetizers for a party, it is a winner. Binge on it guilt free as it is not rude to your waistline....

The perfect sweet and sour balance - The sweetness of the caramelized onions and the tangy hung curd !!

I'm a big fan of onion dip and more so the caramelized onions. It usually is very difficult for me to resist the temptations to just polish off the onions before I ad...

So since condiments are not just dips, today I'm writing about a Relish. Cucumber Relish. 

A summer favourite at home. This a part of the 30 days 30 dips series as well.

I learnt this from my mother in law, one of her many famous recipes.

Summer time I always have two jar...

Cakes come as much from the heart as they come from the hearth. There is an inbuilt celebratory aroma to a cake. The golden browns is then not only a visual treat, it is also the wiff that rises from its core!!
