Chilly Potatoes Recipe | How to make Chinese Chilli Potatoes | Indo Chinese recipes by Kavitha Ramaswamy of www.Foodomania.com One dish that I am incredibly, innnncredibly proud of is my Paneer Chilli. For those uninitiated, it is an Indian adaptation of Chinese flavors in Cottage Cheese cubes.

If you thought crispy cottage cheese cubes tasted amazing in an ethnic Chinese inspired sauce, wait until you have THIS amazingly simple combination of potatoes with a Chinese sauce!

So simple. So cheap. So delicious.

Of course, the authenticity of this dish is questionable. I don’t even know if Chinese people eat their potatoes this way! :) All I know is that Indians – with their undying love for Indian version of Chinese food, absolutely enjoy these Chilly Potatoes! {… Click to read the Recipe …}


Jain Chole Masala

Jain Chole Masala Recipe – Spicy Indian style Chickpeas without onion or garlic!

However, it is this lifestyle – I believe – that keeps them so healthy and disciplined. A lot of their principles revolve around a healthy lifestyle. Anyhoo.. I’m not here to lecture on how to live like a Jain – since I could never do it myself! :)

Irresistible nutella swirl blondies recipe…. swirl your way into edible awesomeness!

Happy July, you guys! My customary semi-annual self realization struck as I was penning this utterly delicious nutella swirl blondies recipe down…

I didn’t write down new year resolutions this year. But I did make plans of a healthier new year. Now, it is ironical that I’m talking about a healthy lifestyle in a dessert post. However, I think it is also apt, since I’ve managed to majorly cut down the cravings and the sugar from my meals – despite experimenting with sugar all the time.

You want to know what the secret is…..?


Share. Spread the love. Distribute the sugar… Everyone gets a little bit of everything.. Everyone is happy.. And no one over-indulges! (although, it may be hard to resist the urge to eat more than 1 slice of this blondie!) {… Click to read the Recipe …}
