Fig Chutney

Fig Chutney

Fresh Figs = Fig Chutney or goodness in a jar, as we like to call it.

We Indians love chutneys and I can say safely that most Indian households have some form of chutney in their refrigerators all through the year. We, north-Indians, love a dollop of (almost any) chutney (along with some pickle) with our staple: dal-chawal. We also don’t mind slathering some green coriander & mint chutney on our breakfast sandwiches. And oh, don’t forget the ever so delicious coconut chutney with idlis. Now that we have established our love for chutneys, let’s move on with this obsession and take it up one notch.

Seven Attempts by Saionton Basu

Book

Hello there, peeps! Hope you’re all having a decent week considering the not so wonderful things happening around the world. Well, today’s post is not about food or a recipe. It is about a book. Nope. We amateur (read: wannabe) cooks are not (at least yet) coming out with a cookbook. That is still sometime and some more experience away. This post is about a book a dear friend of mine is releasing soon. I …

Orange Cardamom Yogurt Cake

Orange Cardamom Cake

Well, it’s just been a terribly long time you saw us around the blogosphere. No stories this time around. We’ll jump right into some orange cardamom-y goodness! We thought this would be a good way to break the ice and distract you from our real (read: lame) reasons for being MIA. So, some of you who still follow us on Instagram must remember that this delicious chai time cake made its first appearance on social …

Sugar free Baby Smash Cake

Sugar free Baby Smash Cake

Hello everyone, this is Aditi checking in for the CeeBees. Yeah, we’ve not been around for a while now despite my many declarations of wanting to blog and be around more often. I think I could/ should (you decide) now write a post on how to take countless blogging hiatus (or hiatuses, I am still researching on the actual existence of the plural form of hiatus, any views?) and excuses to make on your return …

Healthy Berrylicious Whole Wheat Crepes with a Greek Yogurt Filling

Healthy Berrylicious Whole Wheat Crepes with a Greek Yogurt Filling

Yesterday, in 2007 the final episode of Gilmore Girls was aired. It was only 7 years later that I started watching what is now my favorite TV show ever! EVER. Period (psstt..judge me all you want). So, very recently I completed watching all 7 seasons and since then I am having withdrawal symptoms. The Mr. doesn’t understand this but to my utmost delight he took me to Stars Hollow (for those who don’t know, Stars …

Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola

On one cold winter morning in the hills somewhere in Ohio in a beautiful little inn, we had the best granola ever (along with the best ever breakfast muffins). Both N & I love our granola flaky and for lack of a better word not chunky. This granola was perfect. The chef would obviously not tell us the recipe and so a year later we went back to the same inn to eat the same …

Crispy Karela (Bitter Gourd) Stir Fry

Karela Stir Fry

We are food bloggers but we eat normal everyday food too! You wonder why I started this post with such an odd comment? No. Not because we’re cooking bitter gourd today.  Let me tell you why. I think there is this expectation the world has from us food bloggers that we cook and eat exotic food every single meal of our life. I am not sure if many of my blogger friends hear this comment …

Whole Wheat Brownies and a Story

Whole Wheat Brownies

Oh.. I did see some of you roll your eyes already! Yes, we’re back. Again. We periodically disappear. You think- we’re back again with some more lame excuses to explain our unannounced absence? Well, to be honest, I have been writing this post for a really long time… err.. in my head! I have been telling myself every day that today will be the day when thoughts are put in words and published. And today, …

Spicy Peanut Chaat

Spicy Peanut Chaat

Spicy Peanut Chaat- a childhood snack recreated! I remember having some version of this as a kid and remember loving it too. Of late, I have been looking for healthy ways of dealing with my post-lunch/ pre-dinner hunger pangs. So one evening, to stop myself from indulging in the not-so-good-for-me snacks I decided I am going to go nuts about peanuts! Bad one, yeah?

Mini Chocolate Tarts

Mini Chocolate Tarts

Almost every food blogger has a little thanksgiving story or a post or a recipe on their blog. We have ours too and it has nothing to do with pumpkin!! Atleast not yet. I promise, there will be a pumpkin related post too…soon.  As always, much late. But that’s ok. We do things at our own pace around here. So would you believe if I told you we made these chocolate filled beauties? Well, we …
