Chicken Tikka

Chicken Tikka – Pakistani Style There’s a little bit of cheating involved in this recipe. Basically, I didn’t make it. Mom made it, but it is so simple & it turned out so amazing that not sharing it with you would have been sacrilegious. Plus I was responsible for the final baking – so I get a little bit of credit here. Mom makes a Desi-style gravy to serve on the side using up the remaining marinade juices. Serve with…

Salad Greens with Roasted Garlic Dressing

Continuing on with posting recipes for salads, here’s a recipe for another simple green salad with roasted garlic dressing.

Garlic in the dressing might seem odd, but once garlic is roasted, it loses its bitter raw flavor, and becomes mild & sweet. Ever since I discovered how amazing roasted garlic is through the tomato soup I made in winters, I have been…

Green Salad with Fruits & Nuts in a Honey-Yoghurt Dressing

After I got the hang of the olive oil, lemon juice, yoghurt & mustard dressing, I started experimenting with something different. This time I made a salad with fruits & nuts with a honey based dressing – loved the slightly sweet dressing with the grapefruit & olives. The carrot is only there because I had one lying around so I just tossed it in the salad, but wouldn’t recommend adding it otherwise. Fresh Salad with Fruits & Nuts with Honey…
