Ever since I moved to UK, ability to get spices, vegetables or food that you get in India is somewhat limited. I must admit that there are numerous asian stores (more so in London) where getting such asian grocery is more accessible.
My daughter is a is cheese fan and I am not averse to it either. I love mushrooms and we, as a family love broccoli too. With these things in my mind, I always wanted to try out something like a french or italian cuisine and which led me to experiment. I have earlier mentioned that I love bruschetta con fughi.
So I decided to make something on those lines. If am honest, I am not sure how anyone else will feel about this recipe, but I loved the end product so did my family (and the guest who was my guinea pig) 😀
Are you a tea lover or a fab of coffee? I am a genuine tea lover and when it comes to tea, I like snacks with it (normally). One of my tea companion is Mathri. So what is mathri? Its like flaky spiced flour cracker. The crunchy it gets, better it tastes.
Recently I became active on Instagram and I get to see lot of exciting posts. One thing which caught my attention was the idea of trying out new things which require baking. Initially I thought I will bake a Pizza with my own twist and I started looking for Pizza baking stone, and found this one from Hans Grill, I must add its absolutely a piece of beauty. In any case, I ordered this baking stone and when it arrived, I was happy chirpy bird (Who does not like new gadgets in kitchen?)! When I decided to bake my pizza, my girl said she wants to eat something different, so I thought let me give a twist to something she loves. She loves Paneer Patties , so this time I decided to make “Paneer Tikka Parcels” (पनीर टिक्का पार्सल), and this was something new for her as well, and I was assured that she will love it.
Am I the only one who dreams about crispy and spicy snack? I translated my craving to these “Stuffed red chilli fritters” or “Mirchi Pakoda | Bhajiya”, when I recently went to grocery store and found these perfect yummy red chillies. Seeing these chillies, I got immediately tempted and bought them, only to translate these into a scrumptious snack for my evening tea.
Be it holy month of Ramzan or not, Kebabs are super hit any day. Talking of Kebabs, discussion can never end with out bringing Shami Kebab (शामी कबाब) into the mix. Shami Kebab is popular Pakistani and Indian style of kebab, it is different from other kebabs mainly because this one is not fried on a skewer. Shami kebab does not fall in the tandoori family. This one is made by mixing minced chicken along with spices and then frying it.
