Eggless Caramel Chocolate Brownies Recipe written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com

A thick salted caramel layer over espresso-flavored fudgy chocolate brownies, topped off with ganache makes for one delicious dessert. Made with simple ingredients found in your pantry, you can whip this dessert up in under an hour. You can make the caramel sauce and chocolate ganache ahead of the time, thus saving time.

The texture is soft and fudgy. If you however freeze overnight, the brownie layer becomes like a cookie (which, IMO, is still delicious). If you want it to be soft, then store in the refrigerator.    Continue reading

Spicy Sun-dried Tomato Garlic Pickle from South India!

Sun-dried Tomato Garlic Pickle Recipe | No stove cooking required | Raw tomato & garlic pickle | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com

If you are an Indian, you sure must love pickles. Who doesn’t, really? Spicy, tangy and delicious, a well made pickle makes your food taste so good. A simple rice and dal combination can be spruced up with a good spicy pickle. Pickles go with pretty much anything. And this is one pickle you should have in your culinary repertoire.

For one, you don’t need to make this over the stove, cooking for a long time. You basically let the sun dry out and do all the “cooking”. The flavors are a bit different than if you would cook the pickle, but not in a weird way. The subtle hint of garlic also hits the right note. If you live in a place with ample sun, I suggest you give this one a try.    Continue reading

Veggie Bean Burger Recipe | Mexican Vegetarian Cuisine | Vegetarian Kidney Bean Burgers recipe | Foodomania.com

I’ve been kind of obsessed with Mexican cuisine a lot these days! Bean burgers, pico de gallo, stuffed peppers, vegetarian chilli, nachos.. you name it and I’ve been cooking + eating all of them! You can expect a lot of Mexican food coming up on this blog soon! 🙂

This veggie bean burger was one of my earliest attempts at making vegetarian Mexican food. It can be as healthy as you want it to be. If you have access to canned beans, this recipe will take you 30 minutes or less to make. But if you cook your beans, then I do suggest you plan and cook the beans ahead of time. The patties mixture can also be made and frozen for up to 3 days. If you’re not a fan of kidney beans, use whichever legume you like! This recipe really is forgiving and adaptable!    Continue reading
