Mediterranean Brown Rice Pilaf

After too much cooking and indulgence for continuous two days yesterday night I planned for a humble meal a simple pilaf with dollops of fresh yoghurt and green salad, we both filled our plates with pilaf on top with drizzle of yoghurt and salad on side and enjoyed our favorite television shows after a long time. Momo was also quite for a change, as last two days he was busy meeting new friends and entertaining guests, we signed off to bed early with a hope that coming week will be less demanding though I could see exactly opposite of that. <...more

Seared Tofu With Green Beans

Garlic Butter Kale and Sweet Corn

Recently when I made a delicious Lime Basil Pesto Chicken for dinner, I wanted a side dish that would complement it. I had fresh kale and sweet corn to use, but rather than make one or the other, I decided to combine the kale and sweet corn in a delicious side dish cooked in my garlic butter recipe and extra virgin olive oil....more

Puy Lentil Salad (Rachel Khoo inspired)

I love to watch food shows. Sometimes even when its less about food and more about everything else (Hell's kitchen anyone ?? ), :) This salad recipe today is inspired from Rachel Khoo's show 'Little Paris Kitchen'.

Paneer Pasanda

The word "Pasanda" means every one's favorite and as the name suggests this paneer delicacy is adored by everyone who tastes it. The different pastes used to make the gravy add their own distinct flavors which combine to create a dish like non other. As usual I have made certain changes in the recipe, the original recipe suggest to make round shaped tikkis using grated paneer, flour and bread crumbs but I skipped that step and used plain paneer cubes instead of tikkis....more
