    Oh, how pretty are these red velvet whoopie pies??

    A visual delight, divinely tasty, sinful, creamy, soft and above all – as simple as a recipe can be! I do a lot of chocolate desserts.. so much so that I am starting to feel like I’ve run out of ideas for chocolate cake recipes! (i hope not). When my friend expressed her dislike for chocolate (seriously, how?!) and fondness for red velvet, I decided to whip up these cute little red velvet whoopie pies for her.    (more…)

    I love Malabar Paratha. I like to call this Parotta. A popular Kerala street food, this is a great alternative to flatbreads liek roti or paratha. It is similar to lachcha paratha, but made with all purpose flour instead of wheat.

    Thin layers of dough neatly stacked on top of the other and fried to crispy perfection makes this flatbread unlike any other. It is traditionally served with Vegetable Kurma, but honestly- it tastes brilliant with any spicy Indian side dish.   (more…)

    Vada Pav. The name alone is enough to bring a smile on every Mumbaikar’s face.  I have fond memories of eating this delicious and filling snack almost every day during college. Vada Pav and Pani Puri were solely responsible for my brush with obesity in my late teens and early 20s. I’m healthier now, it’s all good. But my love for this snack still continues with an intensity like never before. I was delighted to recreate one of my favorite fast foods at home!

    Go make some Vada Pav and enjoy it with a hot cup of Masala Chai.    (more…)

    Fresh cubes of paneer delicately spiced with garam masala and sandwiched between fresh veggies in a hot and soft roll!

    I’ve made a Subway-inspired Sandwich before. The success of that recipe inspired me to recreate some of my favorite Subs with an Indian twist. This paneer tikka subway sandwich combines the fine art of sandwich making with classic North Indian flavors. Unlike a typical paneer tikka masala, this recipe for Paneer tikka doesn’t call for too many ingredients. With a tonne of protein packed into a little sandwich, this is also a great healthy option for snack or lunch or dinner time.   (more…)
