Leavened breads are delicious. And when they are flatbreads like naan or pita, they’re even better because they don’t take as much time to cook as the other breads.

This version of the whole-wheat pita bread uses a quick starter to achieve that perfect spongy texture with the air-pockets so typical in a regular pita bread. And I also grilled them up instead of baking them – to speed things up.    (more…)

Some recipes are borrowed, some passed down and some – like the recipe for these no-knead garlic rolls – are invented by my over imaginative brain.

There is a lot of thinking about food going on in my head all the time. I’ve been branded an obsessive foodie by many. And why should I be embarrassed about it? Yes – I may not seem normal to my next door neighbor; who cannot fathom why my eyes pop out when I smell beautiful onions caramelizing or when I see mint leaves growing right outside in the garden like there’s no tomorrow! The truth is – my brain goes into a recipe overdrive every time I see or get my hands on fresh ingredients.

One day, I got myself some fresh, subtly pungent garlic cloves and plucked green chilies from my chili pot… and got to thinking about all the classic possibilities I could make with 2 most commonly used ingredients. I had made numerous variations of the garlic bread before. The one thing all of them involved was – KNEADING. While there isn’t anything wrong with getting some elbow grease, wouldn’t we all like to do away with the kneading a few times? After a few different attempts, I finally made some super soft rolls with a dough that barely involved any kneading!

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…)

I have a confession to make.

I’m not so crazy about too. much. cheese.

There. I said it.

Now, I do love cheese – as long as it is subtle and just enhances the dish’s flavor a bit. I don’t like cheese to overpower the dish. What I do love is the taste of roasted vegetables married into a mild cheesy pizza crust. And hence, the vegetable whole wheat pizza recipe.

While I do love the regular white crust pizza made with a regular pizza dough, I’m being the responsible, health-conscious adult here. 😉 I like to convert my favorite fast foods into healthy dishes so that I can eat them whenever I want. And this whole wheat pizza is just a perfect fusion of health and deliciousness.   (more…)
