~Middle-Eastern Shish (Kebabs) with Turkish Orzo Rice~

Mark Twain once wrote, “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow mindedness” and Hans Christian Andersen reinforced the notion in “The Fairy tale of my life: An aitobiography” stating, “to move, to breathe, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote, to travel is to live”. I…

~Biscuits and Cream~~*Featured Post*~

“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate” (Linda Grayson) and in my case, a sister, who is loaded with chocolaty love, herself is sweet enough to eat. This is why I always say, food makes you whole, especially when you share it. My sister lives on the other…

~Tandoori Curry Leaves Biryani~ 

“Until I discovered cooking, I was never really interested in anything” (Julia Child). I always encourage people to make home-cooked meals. There is just so much to it than just food, it’s moments created with ones you love, it’s curiosity that awakens and kindle the explorer inside of you, it’s memories being embedded in food…

~Ras-el-Hanout Spiced Chicken Pot Pie Soup~

“Because cooks love the social aspect of food, cooking for one is intrinsically interesting. A good meal is like a present and it can feel goofy, at best, to give yourself a present. On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for…

~Chinese 5-spice Broccoli Cheddar Soup~ 

“Soups are cozy” (A.D.Posey) and its true, Soups are amazing and the very best friend of winters. Nothing makes your appetite churn more than the wafting aromas of a simmering soup just bubbling away. I love soups for so many reasons; they are easy, quick and extremely healthy. Furthermore, they are a world of discoveries…

~Japanese Teppanyaki~

Japanese cuisine is very much influenced by the seasonal change and geography. To the most of us Japanese food may seem somewhat bland and eccentric, but the freshness, balance of flavours and presentation of food as well as textures are of paramount significance. The Japanese cuisine is evidently very much different in many ways from…

~Chicken Ginger Curry~ 

“India has a certain magic because of the colonial relationship” (Lizzie Collingham). I love my histories “the magical, marvellous food on our plate, this sustenance that we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy. To eat with reckless abandon, without conscience, without knowledge; folks,…

~Chicken Corn and Mushroom Soup~ 

“Soup breathes reassurance, it offers consolation; after a weary day it promotes sociability … there is nothing like a bowl of hot soup, its wisp of aromatic steam teasing the nostrils into quivering anticipation” (The Soup Book, 1949). Soups have been around for a very long time perhaps, as long as cooking, and it’s understandable…

~Turkish Red Lentil Soup~

“Good soup is one of the prime ingredients of good living.  For soup can do more to lift the spirits and stimulate the appetite than any other one dish” (The Soup Book 1949). See, when I sat down to have my bowl of soup, I was gazing at it for a moment and thought, what…
