Finger-licking Vegetable Biriyani

Sundays are always good food days at my house. And what dish can beat biriyani? Chicken and mutton biriyani are always scrumptious but I thought of making a vegetable biriyani today. (Also because owing to the Covid, have bid goodbye to non-vegetarian fare) This was the mood in which I began making my preparations but…

Chicken Shami Kebab

Try this dish when your body is craving proteins and yumminess both at the same time. Traditionally made with red meat in patties form, this is a variation which uses tender chunks of chicken while retaining all the flavours of the original mutton shami kebab.

Summers are here with a vengeance. All one wants to do is drink gallons of cool drinks and eat… but what? Sandwiches of course. Light, fresh and delicious. This sandwich is an old favourite.

Soup for the Sniffles

Hot weather and people catch colds! Sometimes I feel Nature is just a bit of a sadist. Everywhere I turn these days, I see people sniffling or clearing their throats the way people do when it hurts them. Worst is the way people ‘sniff, sniff, sniff’! You offer them a hankie, they thank you and…

Mum Style Steamed Milk Pudding

I have been having this pudding since I was a kid. My mum used to make it when we had guests over for lunch. Everybody used to like it but there was one problem. My mum used a particular pan to make this pudding and she could never make more pudding than what would fill…

Easy Peasy Veggies Soup

Feeling hungry late at night is a nuisance! Nine times out of ten you tend to choose a snack which you should think twice about eating even during the day. And we end up bingeing on it at night! Chips, chocolates and juices are the usual suspects. Last night, I felt the stirrings of hunger at…
