Who says veggie burgers aren’t awesome? Once in a while I make veggie burgers for dinner-they are quick and easy to combine all the good stuff in one patty- easily accepted as fun food by adults and kids alike! Take this burger for example, the flavours from each of the six vegetables, tofu for extr
Bottle Gourd is a boring vegetable, no doubt. There is hardly a person who loves it. It’s one of those “damn! it’s dudhi for lunch today” kind of vegetables, very difficult to glam up or make delicious. It has no flavour of its own, so when fried into a kofta or made into a spicy koottu, it is somew
I cannot be a self respecting food blogger and not post a pumpkin recipe for that time of the year when pumpkins are omnipresent on the internet.

When Rihanna of Garlic Breath from France wrote to me about her totally Indian Thanksgiving menu , I was so thrilled. Just like how excited we are to hear someone else speak our mother tongue, it is exactly that elation I experience when I see Americans, Europeans and so many others take an avid interest in Indian cuisine. Barbara, Emma and Susan, are some of those wonderful people who aren’t afraid of the variety of Indian spices.
