Coconut Brown Rice Pudding (Sugar-Free)

  Hello 2017! Just when you think you’d never hear back from us, you do, right? You know, sometimes (read: of late, all the time!!) gastronomic minions, like us, need to be reminded that they have fans too. So a fan (you know who you are ‘coz I know you’re reading this :)) recently reminded me that we are sorely missed! Truth be told, we’ve been cooking and in fact, clicking some amazing (since that’s…

Classic Indian Egg Curry

Hello there, peeps! Don’t worry, I’ll keep this one short. No stories to bore you with. Just a classic Indian recipe, yeah, today is your lucky day! 🙂 Of course, there is absolutely nothing novel about this recipe and I am not going to say anything to fancy it up. There are more recipes than you can count in the blogosphere that tell you how to make a simple egg curry. So, sorry to disappoint…

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,…

Crispy Karela (Bitter Gourd) 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…

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…

Coconut Ladoos

We know… this is a much belated Diwali post..in fact a much belated blog post itself but we’re always in for coconut ladoos, aren’t we now? Just when I was ready to put up the Coconut Ladoos on the blog right before Diwali last month after a long break, I realized that the blog itself wasn’t too pleased with our absence. Yeah, sometimes technology likes to throw tantrums back at you too. Who knew! So,…

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…

Kaju Burfi (Cashew Nut Fudge)

Even though we weren’t around as much as we should have been, August was a good month. You ask, why? Well, there are two reasons: Nikhil & I  became Uncle & Aunt (respectively 🙂 )! My brother & sister-in-law had a beautiful little baby girl and we are all so excited!! It was our “first post” blogiversary! First “post” blogiversary? Doesn’t make sense? Well, considering the transitions our blog has been through, we have way…
