Recipes for Festivals

Festivals generate soulfulness in our existence. They give us obvious reasons to be in the company of the ones we love the most.

Coffee Mousse with Almond Soil

It is praiseworthy by all means because it is so speedy, hustle free desserts and can look enticing, as well as deliciously sophisticated.  You will need very little ingredients, together they will make […]

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.

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 […]

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. […]
