“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…

Orange Cake

When I think of orange cake, I think it’s just the rind and the juice that goes into the cake. So when I came across this recipe, where you use the whole orange with the skin and minus the seeds, I just felt I had to try it out. Oh boy, it did not disappoint!…

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…

Coffee & Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Muffins

OMG…. these coffee cinnamon chocolate chip muffins are packed with flavour! As I love the 3 Cs 😂(coffee, cinnamon & chocolate chips), I just had to try baking these muffins and I loved it. These muffins are gluten free and vegan too! I know that a lot of people do not like cinnamon. So I…

Methi Fish Curry

Here is another recipe using fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves. I love cooking with fresh methi leaves, as it has lots of health benefits including lowering cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes.

White Rice Flour Pancakes

I think I have literally tried all the variations of gluten free pancakes, except with almond flour, as I kept burning them. So that is the only one left for me to keep trying out till I get it right! Though this pancake recipe says white rice flour, it is not just white rice flour…

Methi Dal

Methi is fenugreek and I used fresh fenugreek leaves for this recipe and yellow moong dal. I have tried with toor dal also, but prefer yellow moong in this particular dish. I am yet to try with chana dal. Methi is mainly used in Indian recipes and has many health benefits like lowering blood cholesterol,…

Sweet and Sour Karela (Bitter Gourd)

You must be wondering how this can even be possible 😂! But trust me…. the sweet and tangy taste will truly deter you away from the bitterness of the bitter gourd (karela) 😉. Honestly, this was an “accidental” dish. I started off trying to make something different with bitter gourd and ended up getting an…
