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 […]

All About Hot Chocolate

The classic Hot chocolate holds an affix with the winter. It’s a cosy and joyous concept, that we all cherish in the cold season.  When hands get a wintry numb, holding a cup of hot chocolate is a bliss.  I have a vivid memory with Hot chocolate that is very close to my heart. So it was our honeymoon and we were at the peak of Mount Titlis, with a white snowy ambience all around. After spending wondrous hours in […]

Homemade Ladi Pav

In India, we have some kind of un-written pledge about having roti, parathas, basically flatbreads at home. Another side of our preferred food catalogue has a prominent broach of bread. But we unknowingly, desist to acknowledge the companionship that bread provides for many of our favourite foods.  For an instant, take our street food, pav baji, keema pav, vada pav and bread burji, and we can not forget the humble Bun Muska that brings in oodles of joy to our […]

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 […]

Chocolate Brownie Frozen Yoghurt

The concept of cold dessert works great when one is catering to the kids. They absolutely adore ice-creams and behave hoggish around them. My girls were hovering on my head when I was making chocolate brownie frozen yoghurt. They licked on the spatulas and bowls with chocolate scraps. I was irritated to some extent, but eventually, gratification took over and I was thankful for that laughter in my kitchen. These kids make my life beautiful, and joyous. So a soft-hearted, […]

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 […]
