A quick look at the recipes on this blog will reveal 2 things: I’m obsessed with chocolate and rice. There is no dearth of recipes using either of the 2 ingredients. When it comes to dessert, I love using chocolate more than anything else. And when it comes to entrée, the desi soul in me automatically looks for something with rice in it.

I mean how could you not love rice right? It is fluffy, flavorful and such a delight to eat. This recipe for Masala Bhaat is wonderful – not just because it is so easy to make and tastes delicious, but also because it is such a wholesome meal when served with a bowl of yogurt.    (more…)

Fabelle's Chocolicious Raksha Bandhan Offering

I have a younger brother. I’ve mentioned him quite a few times on this blog. He’s the guinea pig to all my culinary experiments. He shamelessly proclaims that Foodomania wouldn’t exist without him being around to taste all that I cook. While I want to disagree, I can’t. Because it is the truth! With Raksha Bandhan around the corner (if you’re reading this brother, make sure to get me a nice gift),

When I got to visit the Fabelle boutique in Mumbai a couple of days ago to taste their Raksha Bandhan offering, I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of pralines and the research that went into each little offering. The depth of flavor and textures in each of the pralines are amazing. As I spent over an hour trying one praline after another, I could only imagine how much thought went into blending unique flavors together!    (more…)

I baked a simple Caramel Chocolate Gateau to celebrate Foodomania’s 5th birthday!

A simple chocolate sponge cake cut into layers, sandwiched with some homemade caramel sauce and chocolate fudge frosting. That’s what this gateau is. If you have the frosting ready, this shouldn’t take more than an hour-hour and a half to put together. A Gateau is just a fancy name for cake with layers – layers of cake, frosting, fruit and other delicious things you find in desserts. Since I’m a huge fan of chocolate (who isn’t) and caramel (again, who isn’t?), I thought this would be an ideal way to kick off the next year of Foodomania!   (more…)
