(Strictly for kids 🙂 … er.. and for a few greedy adults like me 😉 ) Just broke a croissant into bite sized portions and decorated around a crisp cheese omelette. Needless to say it got polished off in no time at all!! (Crisp cheese omelette: Just make a normal omelette, cook on both sides, then layer a slice of cheese – I use gouda – and cook on high flame, on the cheesy side, so it turns nice and crisp!!)

This actually doesn’t take much time at all. Simply pile on sliced peppers, tomato, olives, waffles or any left over nuggets or tikkis on a bed of fresh iceberg lettuce leaves (on a tortilla wrap) and add a dash of mayo and ketchup 😉 Voila! ! A yummy, filling and healthy wrap is on your table! !! Continue reading A healthy quick fix
Carrot-potato parathas 🙂 You know how to make these, don’t you? Boil and mash potatoes and carrots, add chopped coriander, salt, a pinch of turmeric powder, amchur powder, fresh ginger or ginger powder and make into balls. Put each ball in the centre of a little rolled-out dough, fold in, and roll it out into a paratha. Cook on both sides. Continue reading Parathalicious
A huge welcome to you! !! I’ve been very irregular here but for once I do have valid reasons for this hiatus!!! You know I’ve been bombarding you with some really interesting info on the Community Radio project that I’ve been supporting. I hope you took a couple of minutes to read about how radio can be a wonderful instrument of change. I will not deviate from today’s post which is a lovely recipe from the very talented Shubha Shashikanth. My little prince had been asking for spaghetti with veggie balls for some time. It looked complicated so I avoided … Continue reading Welcoming you with food! !!
I wake up each day, wondering what to pack in my child’s lunch-box! I prefer non-messy finger-foods, but they aren’t always filling. My Little Prince hates sandwiches, and you already know about my exceptional roti-making-skills! Therefore I often resort to jam-triangles (er, a fancy name for two slices of bread with jam spread inbetween them and cut diagonally into two halves), or rolls (again, paratha rolled like a cigar (oops) along with fresh fruits/vegetables/salad and a tiny pot of Yogurt. So when I saw some cute little tomato buns on display at the Bakery section of a superstore, my heart … Continue reading Cheese n Tomato Swirly Buns
There are lots of things different here in the UK as compared to India. Like for example, many of us (Indian parents/grandparents) pride ourselves in saying our children are ‘Oh soooo naughtyyyy….’ whereas here ‘naughty’ indicates the kid is ‘bad’! And when I say ‘tea’ I really mean the sweet, hot liquid with milk.. tea! Not the ‘London’ version of tea that means a nice evening snack (that tea is a part of!) Or for example, ‘curry’, which to me, means vegetables, diced/chopped/etc, tempered with mustard seeds and seasoned with regular, mundane spices and not a thick gravy flavoured with … Continue reading Calling all lovers.. er.. ‘curry’ lovers!
If you are wondering about how silly the title is, wait until you see the pictures. They are self-explanatory 🙂 I received an email from dear Swaram, about recipe exchange. The crux was that it should be a simple and easy-to-make recipe. And this is what I ingeniously came up with: 1- Take any left-over steamed or cooked veggies from the previous day, or the day-before 😉 as long as there is no mould/fungus on it, that should be fine 😈 To this, add, a pinch of Salt, Turmeric, Jeera Powder, Aamchur, Pepper powder (I use this instead of Chilli … Continue reading Awfully Awesome Parathas
