Pizza to Top: Part 2

So two hours and at least 2 Sangaria down, what do you do now… Good news is that, all the science-y part of the recipe is over. No more of measuring or waiting but simply to taste and make. The first thing you should do once your dough has risen, is to preheat the oven to 220 deg Celsius with your pizza pan in it. The topping can be as many as there are stars in the sky. Choose whatever you

Pizza to Rise: Part 1

PIZZA!! I have a theory; Indians like and eat pizza much more than the creators- Italian and copyrighters- American (always first to copyright, but never to create… have I told you that the country has even copyrighted ‘bhang’ chocolates.. beat that now!!!) Anyways, coming back to our point, PIZZA is regarded with a great respect in India. I have had the cheap 50 bucks worth ones and then the posh 1000 + worth ones. But

My beautiful food-story!

Mumbai is finally raining! Ahh… Such relief from the hot and humid. It’s cool now, and I have a view of green covered mountains from my window ledge. I just want to sit on it with a steaming transparent cup of white leaf tea, the perfect brew- which shines golden in the cloudy sun outside; and remember that beautiful time when we were together! The perfect candlelight dinner I made for u to surprise you.

Fish & Chips, My Way!!!

I have tried my best to like these both together, but somehow, I aint able to. Whether it is in form of an overly greasy, eggy and deep fried Leopold version or in my somewhat healthy tawa-grilled version, both haven’t really got me to fancy this odd combination of a dish!! So, I am basically keeping these two dishes different. First up, my Fishy Bharwan Grilled: whole soft sea pomfret which is first marinated and

Kitchen Ninja Challenge – The Crispy Masala Carp!

You know you have a winner recipe for fish when a non fish loving bong suddenly takes fancy of your cooked fish, and eats three straight pieces of it! Her mom, almost teary-eyed on the call, wanted the recipe ASAP! And why wouldn’t she like it, I baked a well flavoured fish to perfect crisp, with minimal oil and served it with a raita (curd mixed with spices) and home-made chutney. The fish in question

Kiwi Mania with Rum!!!

We are quite a metropolitan world right now, where country and colour lines are bridged every day for good! Food-wise India has always been very experimental. And we have embraced a new vegetable or fruit pretty whole heartedly! A bit of this has to be attributed to the fact that India has such a fertile soil and varied seasons all around the country that makes it easier for it to grow any vilayti stuff. While some of

My Take on: #VeitnamVoyage

Food reviews are different than restaurant ones. And my reviews are not to be mistaken as restaurant reviews. I am a committed recipe developer, and for me food stands greatest over decor, service and ambience. I even don’t care about the number of dishes on the menu, I care only about the taste, and that has to be the greatest of them all. So the new genre on my ever increasing blog gets a unique

Eggless Masala Cake For The Perfect Tea Time!!

Tea is a huge affair at my abode! My Father-in-law is a self confessed tea connoisseur, and when he visits, every day we brew at least 4 different types of tea at various hours during the full day! It’s fun for me as he actually does the heating boiling and brewing on his own. No disturbance for the daughter in law, who just gets a perfectly brewed steaming cuppa in her hands without moving an

Monterey Jack Cracked up with Jalapenos!!

“Monterey Jack” sounds so regal, aint it?? The name caught my eye and I had to buy a pack of it. I am not too much of a cheese geek, but I had heard of Pepper Jack before and thought maybe it’s a cousin from the same family. It wasn’t hot or spicy, neither was it too strong in flavour. It is perfectly mellow, soft cheese to cook with or have on hot toast or

Healthy Start With Raagi-aata Bread!!

Baking is an addiction! And very recently one of my readers got hooked on to baking breads. The romance of the yeast rising, the softness of a well kneaded dough, the red hot oven; and the hard/crispy outsides, yet fluffy moist insides of perfectly baked bread! Tell me if the last line didn’t excite you enough already!! This is called bread-o-graphy in my opinion, and its an addiction that will take everyone off, by a
