Completely Nuts.

Completely Nuts.

I love nuts. They are crunchy, filling, healthy and delicious. Be it adding them to my smoothie or salads or to cakes and pies, in my biryani or making truffles for snacking after school.

Christmas in October! Anyone who knows me well is aware of my obsession with kitchen gadgets and tools and a little birdie may have told the same to the wonderful team at Froothie (Thank you guys!).

Leftover potato, blue cheese and onion pizza

Leftover potato, blue cheese and onion pizza

I remember when we were kids each week one day for dinner my mother would take out what she called her “buffet dabba”. Now that yellow coloured dabba had many partitions in it and its where she would store leftovers that were so little that they didn’t deserve a dabba of their own. Mom being mom would sell it to us by saying,”see […]

Baked fish with sticky sauce

“Even a fish could stay out of trouble if it would just learn to keep its mouth shut.” And since it didn’t quite learn the above it always lands on our dinner plate:) We love fish. Baked and grilled never fried. I have never been a big fan of anything fried. Hence , no affinity for […]
