Mango Chilli Fish

Mango Chilli Fish

This morning Jeet was informing us about the leadership session talks that he enjoyed last evening at a media event. Daniel Pink, Gary Kristen, Prahlad Kakkad….discussions, anecdotes, cook-alongs were the topics in the flow of the conversation. It somehow meandered to a debate on overcoming fears, the why and how of it. Of course, first […]

Mexican Quinoa Salad

Mexican Quinoa Salad

In the last decade the magic called the secret of the universe became popular. The secret, a hugely published one, and thank God for that, said that if you wish for something earnestly and expressed it to the universe, then the players and the powers of the universe will make it happen for you. We […]

Indian Chicken Roast

Are you hosting anytime soon? Guest profile; good friends who are food lovers? Chicken is their meat or even not? Sharing a restaurant quality chicken leg recipe.

Pumpkin Cranberry Pistachio Salad

Pumpkin Cranberry Pistachio Salad

I quite enjoy having pumpkin. My BFF absolutely detests it. Nothing in life is a given. Pumpkins are good for freckles. Pumpkins are 90% water retained and barely calorific. Like the Irish rotund pumpkins can be carved to make will-o’-the wisps or jack-o’- lanterns. Pumpkins are also gluten free. Now you tell me, why can […]

Chicken Kurma With Sesame Seeds & Melon Seeds

Chicken Kurma With Sesame Seeds & Melon Seeds

I had read this somewhere long back. A line that stayed in my mind. The little seed knew that for it to grow it had to be dropped in dirt and covered in darkness and struggle to reach the light. Seeds of ideas. Seeds of thoughts. Seeds of actions. Seeds of work. The little beginnings […]

Mixed Daal

Mixed Daal

Sharing a mixed daal recipe. But before I do, one cute trivia I wish to share is that split pulses or daal/dal gets its name from the Sanskrit word “Dhal” which means “split”. Though in India and Pakistan we do eat un-hulled pulses as in the ones with the skins intact, hulling I think adds to the digestive ease […]

Stuffed Spiny Gourd or Stuffed Kakrol

Stuffed Spiny Gourd or Stuffed Kakrol

For some strange pompous reason I assumed Momordica dioica is Bengali. Kakrol is what we call it in upstate West Bengal and I kind of thought no other community even knows of this bristly balsam pear commonly called spiny gourd. Well, please do not take offence as honestly it is not really a luscious piece of lamb or a […]

Caramel Pecan Pound Cake

Caramel Pecan Pound Cake

“I’ll have what she is having” or “It is so nice when you can sit with someone and not have to talk” or “I thought you didn’t believe men and women could be friends” or “There are two kinds of women: High maintenance and low maintenance” Well, I bet you are guessing where I am […]

Burnt Sugar Cake

Burnt Sugar Cake

There is something to be said about burnt sugar cakes. They remind you of an English Grandma from the country or the church. The thing is that this genre is losing its remembrance because you simply cannot bake a burnt sugar cake out of a packet. You just have to have to make the burnt […]
