What’s Christmas without Fruit Cake! (which is how Christmas Cake is also known) When I was a kid, my mom would buy the most delicious Plum Cakes from a cake-seller who would come to their bank quite regularly. These fruit cakes are no replacement for those childhood memories of rich-dark cake, but
This is a quick and easy cake made with just 2 tablespoons of oil, egg free, and big on flavour. Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee
Apple, Fig and Poppyseed Muffins – delicious and simple, bake them over the weekend for a teatime snack!
This one sounds like an odd combination but they hit off pretty well – something like the chemistry of the geeky Farhan Akhtar and the glamourous Deepika Padukone in the movie Karthik Calling Karthik (which I very badly want to see and end my 15 month exile from the movie-hall), though I must admit that neither the chana nor the cabbage are as glamourous as Deepika, but the end result was almost there!
Ever** since his famous No Knead Bread, I have been in love with Mark Bittman. Needless to say I was so excited when S got me his ‘How to cook everything vegetarian’ a couple of years ago. That book is an encyclopedia and even for someone who has been cooking vegetarian stuff all these years, I discover new ideas all the time.

Combining the goodness of yellow pumpkin and dates in one cake, perfect for kids’ lunchbox or a tea time guilt-free treat.
22.10.2010 Edited to add another recipe of this cake with a mixture of whole wheat, cornmeal and rice flour. [L-Rice flour cake, Top- AP flour orange cake, Bottom – Gorgeous crisp crust of rice flour cake] Sorry again for the long interval. I have finally settled down into a new city and settled en
Last week we had a pre-Independence day party at home. The night before the party, since I was already busy with all preparations, I was in no mood for any elaborate cooking. We generally do not have rice on a week night, because we both prefer to have rotis or pasta / noodles. Rice comes to rescue
Update: A new brand of yogurt available in the market is so creamy, mild (not sour at all) and delicious that I can say that the inspiration for this dip is wholly from the yogurt. When something tastes so delicious, I always wonder if it is high in fat content and therefore calories, but at 79 calo
Who doesn’t like mildly sweet spongy pancakes all dripping with maple syrup? There weren’t many pancake-serving places in Mumbai earlier so my first brunch with a stack o’ pancakes was in at the IHOP in Rochester, NY. My favourite being the multigrain pancakes, which had the grainy bits within and a
I started to bake some bread after I came back home late from a conversations over coffee with my friend. Before turning in for the night, I mixed up the flour, yeast and other ingredients and left it to rise overnight. The first thing I went to check in the morning was the bowl of dough. It had ris
Thanks for all those who participated in the first event at Saffron Trail. The Weekend Breakfast Blogging table was filled with breakfast foods from around the world. Check out the round up with the guidelines to WBB#2 here. Pulao is so common-place and biryani is so much effort. I like a pulao that
