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 …

Papaya Smoothie

I am not sure about you, but I associate smoothies with summer. Blending cold fruits into a smoothie in the winters is not something I think I will be able to do. I can try but don’t think it’ll work. In the cold, I want something to keep me warm- physically and psychologically. 🙂 So with the end of summer upon us, I am whipping up the last set of these nutrition packed smoothies and …

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 …

Tropical Green Smoothie

Are you thinking this is some green blended up bitter health drink? Well, it is green, blended, healthy but it is also tasty and oh so tropical! It’s all about blending together the right ingredients in right proportions to make a delicious smoothie! A big shout out to Patty again, for bringing the smoothie love to us! Smoothies do and will forever remind us of you (and Bailey). 😉

Kurkuri Masala Bhindi (Indian Crispy Fried Okra)

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 …

Tuscan Tomato and Bread Salad

When we don’t know what to cook we turn to Jamie Oliver’s recipes. His 30 minute meals always has some great ideas that we are able to use with the ingredients we have at hand. This Tuscan Tomato and Bread Salad is also one of his creations that we’ve tweaked with what we had in our refrigerator and pantry. And yes- we had a lot of tomatoes in different varieties for some strange reason. Strange …

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

I have been looking for a good chocolate spread for quite sometime now but much to my disappointment I haven’t found the right one. Every time I pick up a chocolate spread container and read the ingredients, the fact that sugar is usually listed as the first ingredient scares me off. So I took it upon myself to make a creamy chocolatey spread at home- I didn’t realize for the longest time how easy it …

Avocado, Beet and Orange Salad with Greek dressing

Since we got back from Charleston we have been detoxifying ourselves. We usually eat in moderation but then we go to a food paradise like Charleston we sort of go overboard. We’ve been having fruit smoothies, soups, greens and the likes. I have to admit that the concept of salads as meals never appealed to me before- probably because I wasn’t having the right ones. But then Nikhil introduced me to such wonderful salads and …
