Potatoes are humble vegetables. Inexpensive and incredibly flexible, they make for some of the best savory food creations.

Take these baked potato wedges for example. These spicy, crispy, roasted potatoes are all you need out of comfort food. And because they’re baked, you’re doing yourself a favor by cutting out all the fat. Still not the healthiest dish around, I’ll admit. But when you go high on starch, you could benefit from reducing the fat at the very least, yeah?

You can use your favorite combination of spices to customize these wedges the way you want. In fact, I always like experimenting with the seasoning, just so that I could enjoy the variety. These extra crispy baked potato wedges are quickly becoming a Friday-night staple. I freaking adore them and I’ll bet you would too! 🙂   (more…)

Every morning, within 15-20 minutes of waking up, my tummy does this weird rambling noise – telling me its time to fill fuel again… and I just love it!

Feed it good, healthy things like this homemade granola…. just so that it would help kick start the day with renewed energy and zest.

Let me introduce y’all to this gobsmackingly delicious, healthy snack time treat! These are my spicy oven roasted chickpeas.

My obsession with beans is well known in my neighborhood. So much so that many a time, bean curries are sent across just for me to taste them! I’m not kidding!

I’d be eating them with or without the promise of proteins! 😉

Paneer Kebabs Recipe
Grilled to perfection!

I’m writing this post sitting in a hotel room about 2000 kilometers (1200 miles) away from home. I just realized what a bad timing it is to be writing about a delicacy like Paneer Kebabs from a place where you not only DON’T get Paneer, but people don’t know what the heck grilling is!

Nevertheless, I only have fond memories of the day I decided to marinade a bunch of veggie chunks and soft Paneer cubes and grill them in the oven! This is a wonderful appetizer that you could serve to your guests and have them rave about all the faux “hard-work” you did! 😉 Only you and I would know how ridiculously easy this Paneer Kebab really is.
