Potato & Baby Spinach

This is a very simple and quick dish to make and super delicious too! I used baby spinach for a change, just so that I would do away with the extra chopping of the usual spinach with the stems and all. With baby spinach, you just have to wash them and it’s ready to be…

Vegan Fried Rice

Here is a simple, quick, easy to make dish with left over veggies or if you like, you may even use frozen veggies. Typically you must add eggs when making fried rice, but as I wanted to make it vegan, I omitted eggs and added tofu instead. Tofu is an excellent source of calcium, iron…

Kit Kat Chocolate Cupcakes using Almond Flour

I guess this would fall under paleo/gluten free, but not the chocolates though, unless you use gluten free chocolates. The Kit Kat chocolate I used for this is the dark Kit Kat. So overall, a very healthy and tasty cupcake! 😉 After a couple of attempts at trying out Chocolate Cupcakes using almond flour, I…

Aloo Gobi

In Hindi, aloo means potato and gobi can either be cabbage or cauliflower. This is a typical North Indian dish and in my opinion, the key to any good North Indian dish is the generous amount of cumin seeds and tomatoes. Do not stinge on either of these and your dishes will be yummy! This…

Garden Salad

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of salad until my sister made this amazing garden salad for my birthday and since then I have made it umpteen times! It’s super easy to make and surprisingly, I have not made any modifications like I usually would…. ha ha. I always make this when I make my…

Homemade Chilli Sauce

This is the best homemade chilli sauce ever! My mum got this recipe from her sister in India, and as usual my mum made some slight changes to the recipe and of course I too made further changes to it… ha ha ha. Just make a big batch and you can use it when making…

Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Cookies

These sea salt caramel chocolate cookies are soft, chewy, delicious and the burst of sweetness with the sea salt caramel chips are OMG! These are truly the best cookies I’ve made so far and they disappear so fast! I mixed and matched recipes from the internet and from behind the packaging, then made a few…

Easy Trifle Recipe (using left over cake and cream)

Trifle is an English dessert and is usually made with cakes and layered with fruits/jelly/custard/cream and there are many variables to it. There is no hard and fast rule when making trifle and you just go with the flow. Typically, I would say make trifle if you have left over cake, or if the cake…

Carrot & Tomato Raita

Raita is like a side dish and usually made with raw vegetables like carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, pineapple, pomegranate seeds and many many more. You can also use boondi (tiny puffy balls made from gram flour) and this is my all-time favourite. Just add the boondi seconds before serving, so as to maintain the crunch…
