Baked Cocktail Samosa

When I was a young girl, samosa meant potato pea stuffing with imli chutney and green chutney. I still have a biased preference to a crispy, hot, well made, deep-fried samosa. There is a comfort zone in the foods, that are associated with childhood. Samosa is one of that food, and it holds a highly reputed place in my heart. But as I move forward with life, the necessity of good health and being fit takes the lead and sadly […]

Jain Schezwan Sauce

I prefer making Schezwan Sauce at home because of many obvious reasons. The quality of ingredients, preservative, high sodium presence. It might seem too much work, but actually, it’s super easy to make at home. The whole idea is to balance out the spice with the rest of the ingredients.  The Schezwan Sauce with lots of garlic and ginger is definitely great, but today I have a recipe for Jain Schezwan Sauce here which has no garlic and ginger.  Click […]

How to Pickle Jalapeño

We all have bought pickled Jalapeño jars several times from the grocery stores. What if I tell you, how easy it is to make ditto tasting pickled Jalapeños at home, that too under 15 minutes.  An itsy-bitsy addition of pickled Jalapeño adds a lot to any dish.

Homemade Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

  Sun-dried tomato pesto is very simple to make at home. It adds a lot of depth in terms of flavour and texture to any snack you serve it with. I am not sure if the name – sun-dried tomato pesto would be a correct for this dip. This is my version and is super quick to prepare.  But I just want to insist on using good quality sun-dried tomatoes. The ones which are fleshy, and are chewier in texture. […]

Smoothies for Healthy Gut

Gut health should be taken into consideration. I don’t want to use that heavy vocabulary, that goes beyond our pronunciation sometimes, but you and me, we must take care of our guts. If we take care of our gut healthy, most of the health problems disappear.  Every emotion, feeling, that we go through starts from the gut. The mind and the gut are very closely associated. I have mentioned earlier, how few foods can help us improve our gut bacteria. […]

Baked Onion Kachori

Baked Onion Kachori

Some foods are meant to be enjoyed. Our innermost food craving comes alive on the very site/aroma of those foods. Onion Kachori (especially the one from Jodhpur ) is what I crave the most. I do call for it, as and when someone in the family or friends travel to Jodhpur.  Onion Kachori… AKA… payaz ki kachori. The more, I love it, the more it alarms me with the number of calories it has. Being a baker, I am mostly […]
