Lets go Desi with Dal Tadka ;)

The most common comfort food in India?.. Yes! Rice and Dal. Dal tadka is probably the easiest among all Dal recipes.  The royal dal dish is of course, the Dal makhani. I can say that it is quite uncommon for folks to go to Indian restaurants and not order a dal dish. After a tiring day at…

Poach an Egg and Go Puff!

Oh the whole process of poaching an egg! I could barely stop smiling after I managed to successfully poach one, and yep! took pictures as well. Never realised there were so many ways to prepare an egg up until I watched the movie ‘the Runaway bride’. Might actually try out every style one day, just for the heck of…

Lamb Burger

Hubby dear lovessss burgers and he comes up with all sort of excuses when he craves for yummy beef burgers from the take-away near our home. So I thought, why not try one at home?. Didn’t want to make a beef burger and put him to a tough decision each week ;)… Hence decided to…

Singapore Noodles..

My usual go-to dish at P.F.Chang’s (or any other Chinese restaurant, for that matter) is Singapore Noodles. Tried it for the first time when I went out with my colleagues and decided to bite into anything amusingly different from my default choice at any Chinese eatery – Chicken fried rice. ( I Know! -_- ). Looked up…

Mastering that perfect cup of Sulaimani!

What does it take to create that perfect cup of Sulaimani? If you ask me, it takes practice. I still have to get the measurements spot on to get closer to the desired end result, while an experienced person like my mom could make one blindfolded! And that is usually the reason why my husband calls her first when he needs…

Creamy Custard

Fruits just taste wonderfully different when tasted in rich creamy custard! Never bothered making custard at home with so many ready-made versions available these days. But once I discovered how good a home-made custard could be, never really turned back to old habits. Being more of a savoury lover, (unlike my sister who made all…

Red Prawn Noodles

Sometimes you make things out from what you’ve got. One afternoon when hubby came home early, lunch wasn’t quite ready. An inspired thought and Boom! Red Prawn noodles was born. Ha!..not quite as dramatic as it sounded but coming to think of that, such a dish wouldn’t have come out if I didn’t have those three magic sauces that I always keep in my refrigerator….

It’s been a while..

It has been 2 years since my last post… Where was I? I went to have and raise a baby.. 😀 After i got pregnant, nothing seemed to interest me other than my pregnancy. I was too much involved in the whole baby thing. But thats that! I am back again to share my recipes…

Chatpata Fish curry..

When I think of red colored fish curry that mom makes, I salivate on just the thought. Mmmm… I have it with Steam cakes(Puttu), Rice rotis(Pathiri), Chapathi, and of course with Rice. 🙂 Its such a fabulous dish. I never knew that Tapioca and Fish curry were a pair made in heaven until I went to…

Grilled on pan Al-Fahm chicken!!

Al-fahm chicken is one of hubby dear’s favorite. I tried to keep it real when I tried it at home. With of course few cooking changes. :)Here’s my Home-made-grilled-on-pan Al fahm!!   Ingredients:- Chicken breast fillets – cut into bite size pieces (500 g) Onion (white) – Diced – 1/2 cup Ginger-Garlic crushed – 2 Tbsp….
