Last year’s apple picking day trip inspired me to make Apple Crisp at home for the first time which turned out to be delicious. Happy with my success and going by how easy the recipe is, I made it quite a few times last year along with applesauce. Continue reading
Here’s a simple, very easy and quick-to-cook Indian potato dish that makes a perfect side. It has no onion and garlic but is still full of flavor! And it’s not a deep-fried recipe. To top it all it’s completely vegan and gluten-free!
South Indian food like Dosa, Idli and Uttapam was a big hit with my family. I grew up in the eastern state of Bengal where there were (and still are) some excellent south indian food restaurants which we would frequent. My staple order was paper plain dosa, a long, crispy thin Indian crepe with an assortment of condiments like coconut chutney, tomato chutney and, of course, Sambar! Continue reading
I would like to call this dish ‘Paneer As You Like It’. Amused and confused? Has Shakespeare got anything to do with this? I wish!!

Health is Wealth, my love. So, let’s have something nutritious now, shall we?
Now, majority of my family is in India. As far as the temperatures are concerned at the moment, in summer, it is Not agreeing with anyone! And the mercury is rising here as well. To deal with the heat (and usually as a part of our regular diet) I made this particular Dal, which turned out to be not only great but quite different than other ‘dals’ that I make (if that makes sense?) This was a good, simple dinner.
Canteen is a restaurant or eating place provided by an organization like an educational institution (school, college, university), military camp etc. In India we refer to them as ‘canteen’, probably taking after the British who ruled the country for almost a century. In America, ‘canteens’ are better known as ‘cafeterias’. So what has it got to do with this recipe?
I had posted a quick and easy pasta recipe (on my Instagram and Facebook page) which grabbed quite a few eyeballs and some friends asked me about it. “Why is this dish not up on your blog? It looks fantastic! We need easy and quick recipes like this.” And if I know myself, I am always willing to help others. So let’s jump right into the recipe of this super easy no-sauce pasta dish.

My husband loves camping. Come March, AB (why write the name as one initial when you can have two?) is deep in research, looking at all the camping sites available nearby. He cannot imagine letting go off spring and summer without going for at least one camping trip. California, fortunately, has tons of really good places for this, depending on what sort of camper you are. I play no role in planning these trips, but, of course, the food. We cannot simply grill some hamburgers or hot dogs, put them in buns and eat them with chips and coke for dinner (although they are perfectly viable options), camping food should be something we would like to look forward to, right? So this post is dedicated to the Tandoori Chicken I made for our last weekend’s camping trip. Tried and tested before, we absolutely love this tandoori preparation as it involves a charcoal grill.
