General Tso’s Chicken

While I do like making recipes from scratch and using ingredients individually to make something beautiful, sometimes you need to cheat and make your life easier. This recipe is quick and perfect for those busy days. General Tso’s sauce is available in all supermarkets and is a fantastic sauce to cook chicken and veggies in….

Honey Garlic Salmon

This is probably one of my easiest recipes on the blog. It’s so quick that I made it while talking in a 15 minute conversation with my sister. I have used frozen salmon fillets but fresh would be even better. Salmon is my preferred fish as it tastes great and can hold firm and isn’t…

Eggs- Sunny side up!

How do you like your eggs? I LOVE all forms of egg, be it fried, baked, poached, boiled (soft or hard), omelette, scrambled or plain sunny side up as displayed in this post.  Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients and are used in various sweet and savory dishes. It’s my go-to ingredient on…

Green Beans & Pork

Growing up, one of my favorite vegetables or green foods was the humble green beans. The green beans recipes that I ate as a kid were mostly in the form of a thoran (a coconut based vegetable dish in Kerala with Indian spices and flavors). The beans were sauteed in fresh curry leaves, mustard and…

Chicken Satay

Thai food has become a personal favorite of mine over the last few years. Whether it’s the Thai green chicken curry, or the Thai red curry paste inspired recipes, they all taste amazing and Chicken Satay is no different.

Snake Gourd Stir Fry

So this post brings out the Mallu (Malayalee – a person from Kerala, South India) in me. Thoran is basically a vegetable dish sautéed with Indian spices and coconut flakes/bits. It is quite frequently eaten in Kerala especially for lunch and is a delicious add on to steamed rice or fresh rotis. As a kid,…

Chicken Curry & Rice

The number of people cooking food at home, taking their time and giving the food love, affection and care has reduced drastically over…

Mussels & Spaghetti

My earliest memory of mussels was more than a decade back, when I went to the beach with my cousins and some of their friends. I’m not the biggest fan of the beach and this day didn’t turn out to be any different. However, at night, we had fresh fish and mussels for dinner. The…

Peas Masala Curry

There’s always peas involved in any scene of a movie where the parents make sure that their kids are eating their veggies. While it is fine to eat it steamed or boiled with some tasty protein as the main course, it is even more delicious when paired with Indian spices and flavors in a curry….
