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 …

Quick Asian Tofu Stir Fry

Some of you may remember this from a picture we posted on Instagram a few weeks ago. This has now become a staple at our house. Tofu has never tasted better before. Well, it has, when we made this and this. 😀 Tofu is something I have only started liking recently. If cooked well, I think a lot of us, who don’t like it for its texture, will love it. One trick to make tofu …

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?

I just wasn’t sure about the texture, taste & flavor. After seeing quite a few cake and bread recipes using whole wheat flour and olive oil from the lovely ladies Sonal from Simply Vegetarian777, Apsara from Eating Well Diary …

Thai Red Curry Paste (Vegetarian)

We are no experts in Thai cooking, but we like to think we do know a thing or two. Curry paste is something that we absolutely love and created our own version of the red curry paste. Of course we referred to a few basic recipes and made our own thing with ingredients we had at home (and without the shrimp paste). Will you judge us if we tell you we used  a Mexican chilli …

Portobello Mushroom Sliders

On some days, I am just very lazy to post. Most days of last week were lazy which explains our absence. Also, last week we just preferred to cook & eat and skip the “click” step of our usual routine. It is so exhausting at times, especially for us “wannabe good food photographers” who try to click a decent picture or two with the so-called right props et al. I must indulge in some self-praising …

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 …
