Vegetarian Shami (Bengal Gram) Kebabs

Vegetarian Shami Kebabs or Kaale Chane ki Tikki…I could give this as many names as I wish but these kebabs would taste absolutely heavenly either ways! Shami Kebabs are a very popular variety of kebabs not only in Indian cuisine but also other south Asian countries. Although, traditionally these are made with minced meat, there are quite a few meat and non-meat versions that exist. We made ours using Bengal gram or kale chane as…

Best Ever Chicken Malai Kebabs

Do you remember our post where we mentioned the best chicken kebabs we ever made? No? Here this one. So we did make the Best. Malai. Chicken. Kebabs. Ever.  Beating our own drums but it’s true, you’d agree if you had them.  You know how much we love our kebabs and miss having authentic ones here in Cincinnati. So we took it upon ourselves to make some flavorful, melt-in-your-mouths kind kebabs and that too in…

Garlic Rosemary Madeleines

So my madeleine pan has been staring at my face since the day I got it. What actually got me to buy this specialty pan (which I usually am not a fan of) was my “need” to have madeleines.  The only other time the pan was used, it was to make shortcakes..these ones, for those who haven’t already seen them. The pan has now finally been put to use for what I’d like to think…

And..we are back! No we were not on a holiday nor were we busy with work. We were having a staycation..at home.. with my parents and we sure did have a wonderful time. We finally learnt the “right” way of Indian cooking. Up until now, we did our own thing but now we’ve noted some secrets of everyday Indian cooking and we’ll hopefully be able to share some of them with you! We also have…

Baked Spaghetti Squash & Kale Cakes

We’ve so been MIA, haven’t we now? But we’re not complaining- we’re spending some great time with my parents and enjoying every bit of it. Our discussions mostly revolve around food, food and did I say food? We have a notepad lying on our coffee table in our living room with a list of things we want my mum to cook. The list is just increasing and we are running short of days. We do…

Asian Baked Tofu

I was never a big fan of tofu until I made this- I am so happy I did because it is absolutely delicious. Since we’ve been eating a lot of salads and vegetables lately, our palate needed some change. Tofu it was! It’s easy to put together with the sauces and ingredients you may already have in your pantry. We made an Asian marinade and used soy sauce, vinegar, sriracha, honey & sesame oil but…

Dahi Kebabs (Yoghurt Kebabs)

Dahi (Yoghurt) Kebabs are a classic Indian appetizer. There seem to be a few ways to make these but we made these from my memory from the ones we used to have at one of our family’s favorite restaurant back home in Delhi. They are so refreshing and delicious with the yoghurt and mint that it’s hard not to love them. We deep fried these kebabs but you could shallow fry them on a non-stick pan…
