Rustic Banana Walnut Cake (Eggless)

This is a cake I've been making for many many years now and it never fails to get polished off in a day. It’s definitely not a perfect looking cake inside but has a rustic, homemade appearance with the baking soda and yoghurt combination making the edges and corners of the cake a slightly chewy darker brown. Thats actually the most delicious…


Deliciously Fluffy Double Chocolate Cake

Coming up with the recipe for this lovely chocolate cake was so enjoyable especially as all the variations I tried out came out brilliantly! The Universe was being kind to me this time, after all the culinary disasters I’ve had in the past few months. I tried three different proportions, all of which worked, and even managed to get a delicious accidental…


Coconut Delight Cake (Eggless)

This cake is a tribute to my Indian heritage and is inspired by my love for coconut and jaggery combinations in many Indian sweetmeats made for certain festivals. One item called Modak, a rice flour dumpling stuffed with coconut and jaggery is a particular favourite and every time a friend’s mother-in-law makes it, she’s been given strict instructions to make an extra…


Baked Piri Piri Broccoli

For all broccoli lovers, here’s an interesting way to enjoy the vegetable as well as get the dramatic presentation effect. That whole head of broccoli situated like a colourful tree on a plate is sure to get attention. Broccoli is a vegetable many people don’t seem to like - certainly almost everyone in my family hates it - but as it is…


Sinfully Delicious Plum Pie

Summer fruits in North India are the best! You get the most amazing cherries, apricots, peaches, plums, mangoes, melons, watermelons, litchis and the like and it’s a glorious feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. After having our fill of the fruits I thought to make full use of them and create some desserts to further showcase their awesomeness. I’ve…


Shortcrust Pastry (Pie/Tart Base)

Pies and tarts are usually given a wide berth by most people because of the perceived difficulty in making the base. To be honest, it is a bit cumbersome but only if you don’t have all the ingredients set out from the beginning. If you’ve organised yourself and have everything you need in front of you, then I guarantee it won’t take…


Baked Fish in Spicy Red Bell Pepper Sauce

Last night being a Friday and all, it was not feasible to give everyone the usual simple fare of dal, roti, sabzi (vegetables), and looking into the freezer, I found that we’ve run out of every thing but two fillets of fish. The last few times I’ve tried to bake fish it has been a disaster because water has leaked out of…


Nutella Swirl, Chocolate Chip Brownies

Brownies are my weakness. It also is a hot favourite with all of my family members, so after a long hiatus and weighing the pros and cons of baking this sinful decadent dessert (which I absolutely cannot resist even though my weight goals are far from being achieved, I decided to throw self-denial of calorific food out of the window and just…


Lemony Roasted Potatoes With Rosemary

You can just see how much I love potatoes. My affinity for the spud shines through on this blog with almost every second post featuring them as the lead. There are a gazillion ways to make potatoes and I plan to try out as many of them as I can. All this love however, is quite unfavourable to my waistline, but what…


Eggless Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins

  I went on this eggless quest after finding out that out my daughter was allergic to eggs. Luckily, this lasted only for the first three years of her life and she’s now outgrown the allergy. However, my affinity for eggless cakes remained as I found they dry out a lot less than those with eggs and have a more moist and dense…
