Pineapple Pachadi

Onam is round the corner; so I thought I would write up a dish or two over the coming weeks and you can try making them for the Onasadhya. I first had this dish on board the houseboat at Kumarakom. And yes, believe me when I say that all the designated guys in charge of…

Fried Ice Cream

I know that the concept of fried ice cream may be intriguing for some. Ice cream, fried, really? How would one do that? Well, it’s quite simple and most important is getting the oil hot when you’re about to fry the ice cream. This will brown the coating of the ice cream very quickly and…

BBQ Tofu

I love tofu, or some call it tahu, in any form and my all time favourite is tahu sambal. Tofu is bean curd and I have some friends in UAE who are my hardcore fans when it comes to tahu sambal. I so enjoy making it for them and I am sure they are missing…

Prata Goreng aka Kothu Prata

I came across this recipe in the Straits Times a long time ago. I had made it couple of times, but unfortunately I have misplaced the recipe. At that time, I felt it was a nice twist to the usual mee goreng (mee is for noodles and goreng means fry) and only later on did…

Choco-Vanilla Cupcakes

I find baking very therapeutic, like watching movies.… ha ha. And when I am in the mood, I will start searching the internet high and low, hoping that I would have ready stock of the ingredients required. Usually I prepare what I want to bake in advance, to ensure that I have all the ingredients…

Puttu

Puttu or some call it pittu, is generally a breakfast dish and in my house it’s a dinner dish. Traditionally you have puttu with kadala (chickpea, the smaller & darker variety) curry, green moong dal curry, or my personal favourite which is with butter, sugar and banana! You must have it while it’s still a…

Pizza

Who doesn’t love pizzas? And better yet, if it’s homemade! This is one of the easiest meals to dish up, as you can always keep stock of the pizza base in the freezer and just buy the ingredients you like to go as your toppings when you’re in the mood for some homemade pizzas. Skip…

Glazed Orange Bundt Cake

Couple of months back, I had the Orange Infused Sujee Cake from All Things Delicious and ever since then, I’ve been searching the net for that particular recipe. I was planning to bake that for my birthday last month but changed my mind at the last minute. I decided to keep that for another day…

Quinoa Fried “Rice”

Hi All, this quinoa (pronounced “keen-wah”) recipe is from my sister, Shyamala. I have only tried it once in a salad form and liked it very much. I plan to try the below recipe and hope you will try it out as well and let me know how it goes. I was introduced to quinoa…

Seeni Sambol & Pol Sambol

Last week, I had posted the recipe for Kiribath and as promised, here is the recipe for both Seeni Sambol and Pol Sambol. It’s easy to make and if you have any leftovers, you can spread some on your bread and put that in your sandwich maker. Don’t forget to butter your toast on the…
