Not only are you looking at the best chocolate ice cream ever, but you are also looking at one of the easiest recipes on the internet for an eggless chocolate ice cream.

True story, people!

You know me; I despise any recipe that calls for too many complicated steps (which is also probably why I would fail miserably as a Chef! 😀 ). I ain’t got time for that! I’m all about minimum efforts and maximum results.

And this ice cream recipe is just a perfect example of my mantra. Okay, it isn’t as easy as making a garlic toast, but once you get your concepts right, you’ll be a pro at making ice creams of virtually any flavor in the world. A good place to start would be my vanilla ice cream. It is the most basic recipe for an ice cream which you can use to make amazing variations with.

And one such amazing variation is this Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream!   (more…)

I’d be lying if I said I don’t dream about McAloo Tikki. Come on. Haven’t you? even writing about it makes me smile with a foolish fondness I reserve for very few people / things in my life. This & this being 2 of them.

Every visit to Mcdonald’s has me ordering the same burger over and over again. One of the many reasons I love Indian food is that it just makes ANY dish taste 10 times better! Well, maybe not. Maybe it is just my preference, but there’s no denying the fact that Indian food is incredibly tasty.

The classic American burger was given a desi twist when McDonald’s came to India – to adhere to the Indian taste preferences. And with this customization, McDonald’s drew millions of Indians out of their homes and into its little eateries – to consume one of their many desi burgers.

While I do thank Mcdonald’s for its genius inventions, I’m also starting to understand the science of cooking food. And as much as I love making my life easier by paying a few bucks for a quick fast food, I know that my body will thank me for every bit of morsel I cook at home – with so much care. Now, we all have to find a trade-off somewhere right?    (more…)

Chocolate is so often the source of such simple pleasures… This brittle candy is no exception. Caramel-y, chocolaty, chewy and festive, with a nutty crunch; they’re tasty, sure — but perhaps what these toffees really have going for them is their ease of preparation. I never thought ‘I’d’ be making toffee.. It’s just too much technique and that ain’t my style. But a recipe inspiration and excess of brown sugar in my pantry finally triggered the inner candy-Goddess in me and lo & behold – a simple concoction of chocolate & toffee right here for you! 😉

A handful of ingredients, a baking pan and 20 minutes is all you need to make these beauties. Ready? Go.
