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 […]

Canned Pineapple Recipe

A slice of canned pineapple makes its way through the hustle of ingredients and can ennoble a simple dessert to a graceful one. Whether it is a bowl of whipped cream or a luscious fruit mousse, simple addition of a slice of canned pineapple will elevate the dessert for you. The cakes and elaborated desserts are often crowned with the canned pineapple.    For me, I love eating it directly from the jar. Have you given a thought to spiced […]

Coffee Blondies

  I pampered and indulged myself in these blondies last week. This is criminal to bake such blondies and then overindulge. Usually, I am careful about the calories I consume, but these coffee blondies gave me reasons to ditch that conscious mind. These gooey, almondy, coffee flavoured blondies were so delicious that I wasn’t able to hold back the temptation. I must be very honest with you, if you are looking forward to some celebration or you are in that […]

Punjabi Kheer Mousse

Punjabi Kheer orchestrated into a new melody of texture and caliber. I turned it into a modern dessert and made a Kheer mousse the other day. Though it is categorized into fusion foods list. But it holds the grace of authenticity, in the core flavors. One can prominently point out the Punjabi kheer flavor, after the very first taste. My favorite part of the dessert is that it not overly sweet and yet satisfy the sweet tooth cravings. Overly sweet […]

Classic Banana Bread

How we have a very silent presence of water and air in our lives and we never acknowledge them, never bother to give them some appreciative words. A classic recipe of banana bread has a similar kind of presence in a bakers life. It never seems to get old, and never goes away and we really never acknowledge it. I love baking a loaf of banana bread, love to have a slice with my tea or coffee. It always has […]

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 […]

Naanza Recipe

Naanza Recipe

Naanza is nothing but, Indian naan fancied into a pizza. A combined venture of naan with pizza with many flavour algorithms. To be honest, it’s a fattening damn delicious carb packed treat. I have my own version of Naanza, which is a little less cheesy and is topped with vegetables and herbs. Its quite an engaging comfort food, which does not require a lavish surrounding of any dips and sauces. Homemade is definitely a better choice.  It’s a simple, yet […]

Traditional Christmas Plum Cake

Traditional Christmas Plum Cake

Christmas is good baking/food, and school holidays for me. Being a Punjabi, Christmas is never a big affair at home, though we relish the whole atmosphere around. It’s so bright, happy and live, so positive everywhere. We don’t do much at home, but kids do have Christmas Parties to attend to. And I do, crave a good Rich Christmas Plum Cake during this festival.  Just one slice with coffee (and a movie of my choice) is what I want. When […]
