Once again, my love for Garlic translates into a recipe created exclusively for carbaholics such as myself.

These cheesy garlic rolls are my take on the regular dinner rolls and garlic bread. After the highly popular how to cook garlic bread post, I bring you yet another bread recipe made from scratch. Only this time, they are in the form of dinner rolls. And flavored with garlic and cheese and mixed herbs.

The garlic flavor in these rolls (or buns, as I like to call them) aren’t too overpowering. It is subtle, yet distinct. The cheese is just right – it enhances the flavor and provides another layer of texture. And overall, these rolls are just fluffy and delightful. The concept of making these rolls is pretty similar to most bread recipes; and yet – you’ll find that a few changes in the dough can give you a wonderfully fragrant bread!   (more…)

Butter Kulcha

After Naan, a plain Butter Kulcha is the most popular and loved Tandoori bread. This recipe doesn’t require yeast and makes lovely, soft & spongy Kulchas!

Here’s a bread fresh from the Tandoor to tickle your taste-buds! Kulchas are easier to make than Naan; but also give you an almost similar texture – spongy, chewy and soft! Requiring no yeast, these flour tortillas (or breads.. whatever you want to call them) are super easy to make and taste delicious with any side dish of your choice.

Usually cooked in a Tandoor, these breads have a smoky taste that is not hard to replicate at home. Using an iron griddle to partially cook the Kulchas and finishing them off in direct flame, you can get an almost similar texture and taste at home. And they are really quick to cook too!

The next time you decide to have an Indian feast, go ahead and make these Kulchas – with or without the butter. They are perfect vehicles to scoop up the many delicacies that Indian cuisine boasts of!    (more…)

Let us all acknowledge the truth about Chinese food. They are simple, delicious and overly adapted to suit each one’s taste.

I don’t think I’ve ever had “authentic” Chinese food. Growing up in Mumbai, I had access to all kinds Chinese-inspired dishes – all of which hold a special place in my heart. You’d find a Chinese food corner in almost every street in Mumbai. Chinese food to me means veggies stir frying (or rather – sizzling ) in a hot wok and then a delicious sauce (most certainly prepared with a little bit of vinegar and soy sauce) to finish them up, coupled with rice or noodles or one of the many fusion dishes.

This Vegetable Fried Rice is a quick one-pot meal. It maybe isn’t how the Chinese make it, but it is delicious and easy to make. And this is how it is served in India. Serve it with some Paneer Chilli or Vegetable Manchurian and your Indo-Chinese craving is sorted!   (more…)

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…)
