Mangalorean Chicken Ghee Roast

Digging into my Mangalorean roots, I realised that one dish we never made at home was Ghee Roast. It is pretty famous on many Mangalore specialty restaurant menus but for some reason Mom never made this one. I know many vegetarians including my sister Savera who loves a ghee roast. Mushroom One being her favourite. …

Mushroom Dum Biryani

Your sister says she is coming over for lunch and her constant gripe is that I don’t cook anything for her. So this time I thought would take an effort to make something elaborate. Now when it’s a Tuesday and she follows a no nonveg day, that would certainly leave me in a fix. Lazy …

Eggless Swedish Chocolate Toscatarta

This is a chocolate version of the Swedish Almond Cake or Toscatarta. The butter moist sponge is fudgy and oh so chocolatey while the crisp almond top gives it a beautiful contrast. Good eggless recipes are hard to find. And this ones a keeper. It’s a recipe shared by Anuja Sule from Simple Baking and …

Butter Chicken

Disclaimer – this is not an authentic Punjabi butter chicken but it’s so yum that I can say cross my heart and hope to die if u don’t like it. It’s a mish mash of recipes that ensures the burst of flavours a good mix usually brings. I hate sweet butter chicken that u get …

Meat Hirwa Masala

It’s been a while since I have cooked something to post on my blog. There are actually quite a few dishes that are saved but have been too lazy to post. I keep getting side tracked. And now with no maid my hands are full. My friend Sahana kept telling me post something Mughlai or …
