Aloo ki Tahari Recipe

 Aloo ki Tahari or Aloo Chawal is a simple vegetarian one-pot dish made with rice and potatoes. It is one of my favourite Desi comfort foods, and I love having it with lots of raita on the side. The way it’s always been made at my place has been with potatoes (and there’s always an extra potato for me!), but other vegetables like beans or peas can also be added. It can easily be served on its own as a…

Peri Bites are green chilies stuffed with chicken & cheese; dipped in breadcrumbs and fried till golden. They make you ask for a glass of water but you still keep asking for more. It’s the month of Ramazan and as much as we plan not to, we end up focusing on the food. Every year I think that this year I am going to keep it simple; not spend much time in the kitchen and eat healthy. But inevitably I…

Qeema Bhari Shimla Mirch

I was invited to a blogger’s meet-up by National Foods Limited this Chand Raat at Pranzo. The purpose of the event was two-fold.

Second was a continuation of their Made Easy campaign with the launch of the ‘Made Easy’ mobile application. Unfortunately, I got a bit late to the event but from what I was reading on Twitter, the event started off with Chef Saadat…

Aloo Matar ki Sabzi

A basic vegetarian recipe that is a family favorite. Aloo (potatoes) and peas (matar) are cooked together to create a simple yet delicious sabzi ka salan. It’s become difficult to write these days. No, I am not facing writer’s block or running out of recipes. It’s just that I have been so caught up and busy in both my personal & professional life that it’s difficult to find the time to write blog posts. But don’t worry. I haven’t disappeared…
