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…

Meatless Meat with Chickpeas

This meatless meat or vegan meat is the latest craze in town, but I really don’t understand why it has to be so expensive! Anyway, when I saw this in the local supermarket, I just had to try it. If you recall, I had tried the other latest craze called Impossible Beef and made kheema…

Gluten Free Pizza Crust

I’m truly surprised that I have not yet talked about gluten free pizza crust in my blog! I have made this a few times now and it’s so good; plus nothing beats making pizza base from scratch and making it gluten free too…. 😉 Usually there is a difference in taste in gluten free and…

Coconut Chutney

Chutney is a condiment or sauce originated from India and there are endless varieties in which they are prepared. Tomato, mint, raisins, coconut, onion, roasted gram are some of the chutneys that I usually make and there are many many more. I guess you could classify chutney as a dipping sauce as well.

ABC Payasam

Payasam is an Indian desert usually made by boiling rice or vermicelli with milk, sugar and flavoured with cardamom.

Indian Fish Curry with Tom Yam Twist

This fish curry is made using tom yam paste and coconut milk and has a nice, tangy punch. Once you try making this dish, you may not want to try any other variety again, as it’s so addictive. I’ve made this a few times now and this is the best version so far. I’ve tried…

Baked Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potato and usually have it baked. It’s so easy, cos you just marinate it with whatever spices that you fancy and bake it. I have tried doing a simple stir fry also, but prefer the taste of the sweet potato when baked. My usual marinate for this recipe is with garlic powder,…

“Kheema” – using Impossible Beef!

Keema is a popular dish in India, made with minced mutton or beef and can be prepared as a curry or semi dry. It goes well with bread, chappati, paratha or rice.For this preparation, I used Impossible Beef (which has no meat, but made from plants!) and added carrots and sweet potato as well. I…

Baked Teriyaki Salmon

It’s super easy to cook salmon and usually it’s either baked or pan-fried and it doesn’t take very long to cook either. Just play around with whatever you feel like marinating it with and then choose how you would like to cook it. I don’t have an air fryer, else I would have tried that…
