Thai Peanut Noodles

Thai food, my love affair with Thai began when I moved to Singapore. Twice a week I would eat thai food for my lunch. It is a complete sensation of a meal, it has crunch, spice, sweet, savory and sour in every bite, making it moreish and oh so amazing. I made these noodles sometime…

Cream of Mushroom One-pot Pasta

I love cooking food from scratch, there is a sense of completion, a sense of accomplishment that I get, along with off course, a really yummy meal. But sometimes we all are really short on time or just plain lazy and need a meal which is wonderful but doesn’t take much time to get ready….

I love Uttapam, there I said it. Just a plain uttapam made with butter, I can gulp it down without feeling the need of any chutney or sambhar to go with it. I make dosa or uttapam once a week, this time I thought to get a little creative with it. Instead of the original…

Handrolled , Handmade Pasta (Garganelli)

Life is a combination of Happiness and Pasta!!

Don’t you agree, I mean who doesn’t like a well made bowl of pasta, a true comfort food isn’t it?

I love simple, fresh foods and I love fresh pasta. A little labor intensive, however one bite and you will agree, its all worth it. Fresh pasta is a combination of labor and love, and I enjoy the process of making it.

Mix veg with Cilantro

Whenever I can’t decide what to cook for dinner, I take out one of each veggie from my fridge and make a mix veg. This time when I was making mix-veg I decided to give it a little green twist and added Cilantro puree to the vegetables while cooking. It not only gave a beautiful colour to my dish but also a wonderful aroma. In case you are not a big fan of cilantro you can totally skip that, it will still turn out to be equally good minus the green colour and aroma of cilantro
