Paneer lover? If so, you must have heard and ate Paneer Butter Masala (पनीर बटर मसाला), also known as Paneer Makhni. I remember so well that back when I was growing up as kid, only paneer dish I knew (about eating) was paneer butter masala, and used to be my favourite. Those were the days when eating paneer was a luxury for me. Paneer still remains most favourite dish for millions of people and thanks to people trying out with cooking there are many more paneer dishes out there to satiate the taste buds as per the need of an individual.
Happy new year all of you! Its 2020! I hope the year has kicked off positively for all of you. Thinking of January, reminded me of festivals in January and the foremost festival celebrated widely in India during January is “Makar Sankranti” or “Pongal” or “Lohri“, depending on where you are in india, you will be celebrating one of these. This reminded of the most common thing made in north Indian households during this festival, i.e. “Sesame Seeds Ladoo” or “Til Ladoo”.
Recently I have acquired taste for some Japanese food and have been exploring some authentic Japanese eating joints in and around London. My partner too have developed special liking for Teriyaki sauce, and he was looking around to see how it is made, so that he can try out few teriyaki dishes.
Being a mum what is anyone’s biggest challenge? Mine is feeding kids! Kids don’t want to eat this or that or sometimes they get bored of one thing or other. I keep thinking of ways to feed them by either giving friendly shape to food (call it food art), or feed them by playing games, or sometimes just creating some fusion.Continue reading “Vegan Fruity Chocolate Dosa | Crepes”
Its full on apple season in the UK, and with no surprises apples are blooming at peak in September across many households, thanks to good UK weather and that it is common to find apple tree in backyard of many British homes.
Indian food is full of flavours and no secret that it offers so much of variety that if you decide to eat a new dish every day, you won’t get chance to repeat same dish in years to come. Today am sharing this thing called Kachori (कचौरी), which is basically a flour based flat bread with stuffing in it and deep fried. The stuffing can be of numerous things, though its normally potatoes or lentils (dal). Speaking of lentils, normally moong is used, however in my recipe I have used Urad dal.
Paneer Tikka (पनीर टिक्का) originates from India, and is made from chunks of Paneer (cottage cheese) marinated in spices and grilled in tandoor. It is one of the supreme delicacy for vegetarians, as an alternative to Chicken tikka. In absence of tandoor, you can also make it on tava, however tandoor offers the special smokey flavour. I made it using a Barbecue tandoor as well as tava. Below is my simple to follow step by step recipe, the key to success here is marination.
Preparation time : 10 minutes (Excluding time for leaving aside for marination)
Cooking time : 15-20 minutes (Excludes heating the tandoor)
Serving : 5-6

Here comes the first box of Degustabox and here comes my review of the box. Got the box delivered around 21st of January and I had been back from my holidays recently, I was totally occupied with unpacking, laundry etc. Gradually got to try around the contents of the box, some of the things in the box won my heart, some were like…hummm…ok can be better.
Stressing over baby and toddler meals, diets, weight gains, and losses has always been a thing among Asian mommies. They can be extremely concerned about how much their little one weighs, how much he/she’s gained or lost, and how the ‘weight factor’ makes their little ones look. In India, moms focus on doing all they can to make their babies gain ‘healthy’ weight. That’s right, not just ‘weight’ but, ‘healthy weight’.
Been living in UK for a while now, and heard about Chokhi Dhani London from a friend in November last year. This led me to explore them and a little google showed that they are originally based in Jaipur, India. There can’t be a better timing for me to discover this, as I was going to be in Jaipur in Dec/ Jan. Here in this blog, I am trying to share my experience of Chokhi Dhani Jaipur and at the time of publishing this, I am yet to explore London’s Chokhi Dhani.
