#WCW

WCW is an acronym for ‘Woman Crush Wednesday’ in Instagram world but it means ‘ Weird Combination Wednesday’ in my La La land. Β Those who know Hari might know that he is a sucker for weird food combinations. If you ask him whether he wants Orange juice or cranberry juice, he would want both, mixed together. In fact I recently found out there is a cocktail with that combination called Madras Cocktail (Cranberry juice + Orange juice + Vodka). I casually Snapchatted when he was dunking bitter-guard chips in orange juice few months back and few people were actually fascinated by this idea!!!! You gotta be kidding me! But here are such weird-combinations that he likes. Read More …

Spinach Dal Khichdi in Instant Pot

Long time, no IP recipes!! In fact not much recipes off late. The reason is I’m so so lazy these days that I hardly cook anything great but even if I do I’m lazy to take pictures! πŸ˜€ So I planned to make dal and rice yesterday but got so lazy that I dumped everything in IP and made dal khichdi. πŸ˜› And it turned out so good especially on a cold winter night, this is such a heavenly comfort food! I usually make khichdi/dal with moong dal but I ran out of it and made with toor dal and loved it. If you don’t have a Instant pot, make the same thing in pressure cooker or rice cooker. Alright, here’s how I make it. Check out other Instant Pot recipes here. Read More …

Therattipal in Instant Pot

Growing up, we always used to buy therattipaal/palgova since it’s very labor-intensive to make at home. Now that I have my magic wand, I whip up foodgasmic therattipaal in my Instant pot in just SIX minutes!! I got this recipe from my friend and tried it immediately and have been hooked to it since then. We love how easy and delicious it is and all we need is just 3 ingredients! You can also make this in microwave but I choose IP over microwave any day. Check out my other Instant Pot recipes here. palgova_recipe_instantpot Read More …

Beetroot Hummus

I’m that annoying kid who is a picky eater and hates vegetables. But since the time I started cooking, I’ve figured a way to eat my veggies. I either mash them and make cutlets, puree them into a smoothie or grind them to a hummus where you can’t really taste the veggies but all the goodness are getting in. So yeah, I’m proud of myself. πŸ˜€ I have made roasted beetroot hummus and roasted red pepper hummus, this time I just microwaved beets for couple of minutes and pureed it along with the rest of the ingredients. Absolutely loved the taste and look at that color!! Here’s how I make it. beetroot_hummus Read More …
