#WCW

WCW is an acronym for ‘Woman Crush Wednesday’ in Instagram world but it means ‘ Weird Combination Wednesday’ in my La La land. ¬†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 …

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. ūüėÄ 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 …

Channa Sundal

Cold evenings are upon us and I love me some steaming hot sundal. Sundal is nothing but you make some tadka and add it to you steamed lentils. As we know lentils are very healthy and I love them, I’m hoping to have more sundal throughout the winter. If I could eat this everyday I would but then who can endure fart fest everyday? xD This is a southindian snack and many of you may not be aware of it so here’s how I make it.¬† channa_sundal Read More …

Moringa Leaves Stir-fry

  Growing up, I hated greens and vegetables. I vividly remember making faces at my mom whenever she force fed us. Little did I know the health benefits then, all I knew was spinach was Mr.Popeye’s favorite. Now, greens are a must for me not that I like it but I feel good when I eat it. I usually add it to my daily smoothies or else in curries like palak paneer, spinach dal tadka or a simple stir-fry like this one. This time I was surprised to find moringa leaves/ drumstick leaves/Murunga keerai in our Indian grocery story and grabbed it without second thoughts. My mom usually makes sambar or kootu, I wanted to just stir-fry it along with some moong dal.Read More …

Broccoli Curry

broccoli_gravy Growing up, I used to be¬†such a picky eater¬†and refused to eat vegetables. Give me any fruit, I would eat it without complaining. Even now I’m not a big fan of any vegetable, but I have grown old enough to realize that whether you like it or not, you gotta eat it. I try to make it easy to eat by cooking it in a way which I would like. After lots of experimentation with broccoli, now I have started to like broccoli if it’s made this way. No biggie. Just another ¬†tomato-onion gravy with broccoli in it and I loved it. Not just me, my brother who never ever comments on food said that this curry is too good. Here’s how I made it..Read More …
