Methi pulao with Millets and Crispy fried Karela

  A few weeks back I tasted Methi (fenugreek leaves) pulao at a friends place. Instantly loved the taste. I love methi. I will eat anything that's green, except frogs and snakes.

Sometime back ('Parsum ich' i.e.1 year ago) I tried my hands on Jamie Oliver's Spanish Paella, or as my husband calls it Spanish Khichdi! It was my most... Continue Reading →

Oven baked Tandoori chicken

I started eating non-veg food quite late in my life. My first taste of meat was when someone forced me to stuff my face with a big morsel of mutton biryani. Hated the taste of mutton back then! Next logical step was to taste chicken. Along with a bunch of friends I had Chicken Biryani... Continue Reading →

Speaking of Aai, the first thing that comes to mind is the different types of Pohe she makes. Whenever I come back to SG, she packs a big pouch of Hing Pohe for me.... Continue Reading →
