A little fun factFoodomania went live on this very day, THREE years ago.

I’ve been living this amazing life for three years now. sparkle in my eyes (just for the dramatic effect! 😀 ) The thing about undiscovered passion is that you keep fidgeting around, until you find your mojo. And once you do, you can’t imagine a life without it. My experience with creating this website is also something like that.

Everyday, I get to do what I love whilst building a community of like-minded foodies. I think that’s a pretty sweet deal. And I wouldn’t have been able to do what I love, if i weren’t for all of you who read, comment, write back to me, test my recipes and generally motivate me to do better. So, Thank You! Now – let’s celebrate. 😉

So, what do you do when you are in a celebratory mood? Indulge of course! And can there BE a better indulgence that Chocolate? I think not. And keeping up with my style of cooking –  minimal efforts • maximum results – here’s a fancy dessert that requires less than 60 minutes of your efforts – The Chocolate Brownie Cupcake.

Green Lentil and Oats Burger

This Green Lentil and Oats Burger is a healthy twist on the regular veggie burger; packed with proteins and fiber!

Sometimes, it is nice to give up the crazy addiction for fast food and cook something light, refreshing and healthy! Keeping up with the promise I made to myself in the beginning of 2015 (to make healthy lifestyle changes), I’ve been consciously opting for ingredients that are healthy. Take Green Lentils (or Green Sprouts, if you may) for example. Packed with proteins and rendering a great texture when cooked, they are wonderful for making patties.

I’m not going to lead you to believe that a healthy lentil and oat burger will be infinitely tastier than your average burger. Health food can only do so much. However, the nuttier flavor kinda grows on you, leaving you satiated for a long time after.

If you’re looking to make a healthy vegetarian (vegan, even) choice, then do give these green lentil and oats burgers a try.. (more…)

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…)

Sometimes, I wonder if I will ever tire of chocolate. My love for chocolate and the giddiness it causes me is real. And I ain’t ashamed to admit it. My face lights up when I see / eat / smell chocolate. Too embarrassing? Probably.

But the truth is – chocolate makes my soul sing. And the more I get to work with chocolate, the chirpier and happier I get. So here’s another late-night baking experiment done right.

Rocky Road Cupcakes.

Chocolate, Nuts and Marshmallows come together in a simple eggless chocolate cupcake base. The texture rendered by roasted marshmallows, crunchy nuts and tempered chocolate is what makes this cupcake “rocky”. And hence the name – “rocky road”.
