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…

Spanish Omelette

Spanish Omelette is an omelette made with eggs and potato and it’s called Spanish Omelette, as it originated from Spain. I’ve been wanting to make this for a very long time and finally got around to making it. My list of what I want to make, never seems to end as I just keep adding…

Baked Pancakes (Gluten Free)

You probably never heard of pancakes being baked, right? Well…. I certainly didn’t, but I came across a few such recipes, usually called Sheet Pancakes and have been meaning to try them out for some time now. I eventually got around to trying them and only wish I had started earlier…. ha ha. These baked…

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. As there…

Salmon Fried Rice

This is like your usual fried rice and has no twist to it. I feel fried rice is a versatile dish and you can literally add anything you want to it and as I have been toying with some ideas for fried rice, I started with this simple salmon fried rice.  For this recipe, I…

Gluten Free Vanilla Cake

This vanilla cake is so very tasty and easy to make too. Don’t get put off by the gluten free bit, as what makes this gluten free is the use of almond meal instead of the regular all-purpose flour. Almond meal is made from raw (unpeeled) almonds and if you come across almond flour, it…

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,…
