Homemade White Bread Loaf Recipe

I had asked myself before getting ahead with this article if anyone who is fairly new to cooking or baking will be able to accomplish a good loaf of white bread via this post.  The reply was yes, but a few ifs adjoined to it. If the one who is baking a white bread loaf referring to this recipe will be very accurate in measuring the ingredients. If he or she is careful about the kneading process and will have […]

How to make perfect Pancakes

Pancakes guarantee overjoyed kids, There is this auto-pilot delightful mood-set when it is pancake time. My younger one is simply crazy for pancakes, she makes me promise pancake for breakfast on, no-school-days and she enjoys them like an English girl with all the drama of elegance. The word that comes to mind is Dramebaj. She even raises her pinky when sipping from her milk cup like a lady. Her fictitious stage for the performance is my dining table. I enjoy […]

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. We eagerly anticipate the joyous times, when we get time to chill, sit in that balcony, hang around on that staircase, play those card games with those cousins/friends. The group gets bigger and better ever festive season and those senseless, extreme, leg-puling jokes which have been circulating over the years and never seem to fade off their […]

Thandai Mawa Muffins

Mumbaikars have nostalgia for Irani bakery mawa cakes. Centuries-old venerable relation with mawa cakes has sustained and will never retire. The soft, buttery, cardamom-infused teacakes in silver foil trays, sometimes wrapped in wax papers are heartwarming. A staple in Irani cafes and bakeries has created an eternal harmony with our taste buds.  Mawa cake has a strong presence of Indian flavours. Cardamom being one of the prominent biffs in a mawa cake, it opens more room to play around using […]

Eggless Cream Cheese Cake

The thoughts are in a quarrel in my mind, concerning the name of this recipe. Eggless cream cheese pound cake, won’t be an appropriate name, because traditionally a pound cake had a pound of each of four ingredients — flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. Pound cake, originated in Europe in the first half of the 18th century, initially weighed four pounds. We have preserved the original, simple-to-remember-ratio of this recipe and yet we have driven it to a contemporary time bringing-in a […]

Caramel Popcorn at Home

A big bowl of popcorn is of greatest joy with a movie. It’s like, euphoria when we dig the hand into a tub of popcorn while watching a movie in the theatre. The crunchy-munchy bites and the seducing aroma that tickles the nose and tastebuds, make popcorn a beloved treat for all. Movie and popcorn are married now, but you know, when movie theatres came into existence, they did not allow popcorns inside the theatres. The halls were considered of […]

Baked Amritsari Kulcha

This Amritsari Kulcha recipe is similar to the authentic kulcha and it turns out delicious. But these Kulchas are baked in the oven. Having no tandoor is a limitation for many home cooks like me. The OTG works great, and it is proven to be a saver for me many times.  Being a Punjabi, I can’t ignore the demanding tastebuds who are hungry for a good buttery, crispy outside, tender inside, aloo masala stuffed kulcha. I might have to face sulky reactions […]
