Mushroom and Carrot Pulao

Mushroom and Carrot Pulao

I must admit that I have been a bit lazy the past few weeks and blogging was put on the backburner. Fishing from that dusty bag of good recipes in one corner of my brain, while also rummaging through image folders on my computer for […]

Bidari Paratha

Bidari Paratha

This is a super easy Indian bread…. A bit heavy on your waistline perhaps but extremely easy on your palate and you wouldn’t know how they disappear. I am not really sure about the origins of this Indian bread or which part of Indian cuisine […]

Bhindi Raita / Fried Okra in Yoghurt

Chicken Biryani

Chicken Chili / Spicy Shredded Chicken

Caution! – This is not a Chinese recipe… don’t let the name fool you as it fooled me. One evening when we were in the grips of hunger and there was no food at home, we decided to order from a small restaurant right across […]
