Indian Spiced Bread and Butter Pudding.

Indian Spiced Bread and Butter Pudding.

I find a bread and butter pudding very comforting, rich and delicious; all at the same time. Soft custardy middle and dark and crispy edges! Everyone has their own version of it to use up all that stale bread, brioche or even croissants (hello #bestovers) and the fact that the recipe is so forgiving makes […]

Atta Halwa: So comforting and yet so celebratory.

Thrice Grilled Cauliflower

Grilled cauliflower is one of my favourite ways to eat a cauliflower (umm..actually second best. The first one has to be my mum’s cauliflower pickle which I consume like a main with a namak ajwain parantha).

Butter Chicken Naan Pizza

My mum and dad are vegetarians but I was never asked to be one just because they were and still are. I was always given the freedom to decide if I’d like to eat meat which is, to be honest not something that I see many parents doing even today. Not only that but because I […]

Fox Nut Trail Mix (Phool Makhana Namkeen)

Triple chocolate brownies and summer holidays.

Summer Holidays mean grandparents, ice creams and brownies. My little girl made these one bowl devilish chocolate brownies using dark chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder, and chocolate chips. Yes, that is chocolate three times over! Feel free to add nuts of your choice or even a handful of dried fruits. These are not only luscious and […]

Pumpkin, Couscous and Feta “Meal in a Bowl”.

Keeping loads of vegetables grilled/roasted to add to our lunches and dinners is such a life saver. All that I need to do later is to add a grain, some greens and some delicious cheese and within minutes there is a wholesome and nutritious “meal in a bowl” on the dinner table. There are no […]

It is getting really warm and today for lunch all my little girl and I wanted was a light curry and rice followed by a nap. We are having a pineapple coconut curry that has been tempered in butter that gives it not only a flavour but also helps release the fragrance of the mustard seeds, curry […]
