3 years ago, if you had told me there’d come a time when I’d be making butterscotch cookie bars at home, I’d have laughed at you. But here I am today, gloriously writing a recipe for the same. I have to thank this blog for my culinary experiments. These butterscotch flavored cookie bars are just so darn easy, that I wonder why it took me so long to discover the recipe. Brown Sugar is the miracle ingredient that makes these bars delicious!

This was the first time I tried (to bake AND eat) cookie bars and I was mildly surprised by how much I enjoyed these sweet treats. They are a cross between cookies and brownies. They taste like those classic, somewhat soft, somewhat chewy cookies. The great thing about these bars is that – unlike cookies – you don’t have to roll them out and make individual cookies. You dump the entire dough in a pan, bake and then slice into bars.

Use the basic dough to spruce up your own cookie bars. I like to add marshmallows, chocolates, nuts and even crushed graham crackers for texture and flavor. You can do whatever you like! Make this your own.

Paneer Burger

Spicy Indian-inspired Paneer Burger with veggies. A favorite among veggie lovers!

There comes a point in every Indian vegetarian’s life when he or she stops to wonder –  Is Paneer the only substitute for meat? The answer is – mostly – Yes. Most of the fabulous recipes which use meat can be suitably modified to create healthy and tasty vegetarian dishes. And instead of the meat component, Paneer is used.

With around 18 grams of protein per 100 grams of Paneer, it is also widely accepted as an excellent protein source for vegetarians. Of course, there are many more faux meat substitutes available in the market these days. And then there is Tofu. But none of these substitutes come close to the flavor and flexibility offered by Paneer – IMO.

I created this burger recipe with leftover paneer. After having enjoyed a rich meal of Paneer Pasanda and Naan the previous day, I was in no mood for another royal meal. I wanted something light, fresh and healthy – and most importantly – I wanted to use up all the leftover paneer and grilled veggies. This burger is as healthy as it is delicious. And it hardly takes 15-20 minutes from start to finish. If you’re looking for a nice Indian-inspired veggie burger – this is a great recipe!   (more…)

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…)

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.
