Eggless Molten Lava Cake

My husband is not very talkative, he talks when he’s prompted and is very crisp with his answers. Sometimes his managerial behavior does extrapolate to conversations that we have at home(something that makes me go Errrkkk!!!!).I get an insight of how many back to back meetings he has to attend in a day when he works from home and I don’t know how he can talk so much. Today with so much of listening to Want to know more about this recipe?

Chocolate Baklava Cigars Topped with Chocolate-Caramel Sauce

I’m amazed at my son’s manipulative powers. He loves to be the center of attention like any 6 year old and gets immense happiness if he can make his sister look bad. As we were having our lunch my son remembered to question me if I had my breakfast and I was carried away by his simple gesture and the lovely thought that he cared for me. Anyone could spot his beaming triumphant look that Want to know more about this recipe?

Kara Sev

Kara sev is the final snack that I made for this Diwali and the most spicy of all. This snack makes me very nostalgic and brings back fond memories that I deeply cherish. Just to tease my dad I made them with garlic and I had a mischievous smirk on my face all along. My dad can be very hilarious sometimes especially when he showcases his dislike for garlic. He would close his eyes, ears, Want to know more about this recipe?

Thattai [ Flat Rice Flour Crisps with Pepper Powder]

If someone asks me the synonym of thattai, I would without a blink of an eye would tell my husband’s name. He has strong liking to few handful dishes and relishes them thoroughly on any given occasion. He can munch on it any time, any day and won’t get bored even if I pile a mountain of them. Festive days are not complete in our house without this spicy flat discs. I have a thattai recipe Want to know more about this recipe?

Thenkuzhal Murruku [A Festive Snack for my 200th Post]

My mother-in-law used to tell us stories of her childhood like how her grandmother used to give her just 1 or 2 murukkus for afternoon snack. I enjoy listening to her as she has a knack of telling the simplest thing in a dramatic theatrical way that I almost transform myself to her world. I miss the chit-chat and the warmth of having relatives around me especially during festive days. Diwali this year was just Want to know more about this recipe?

Mocha Cookie Icecream Shake

I told myself it’s ok to indulge once in a while and I’ve been telling that for the past few days. With preceding festive days snacks and sweets are stacked up so high that they can easily touch my kitchen ceiling. I’ll worry about the after effects when I need to face the one and only enemy in my house, “The weighing scale” after having this shake. I can be crazy sometimes and so is Want to know more about this recipe?

Jalebi is so hard to make, they need extra skill set, they can be made only by professional chefs or experts. I’ve heard such phrases numerous times and I’ve truly believed each one of them. Don’t be fooled if anyone tries to tell you that. They are pretty easy to make. If you can dance, shake, swirl your hand or if you know how to write in Telugu or Kannada (Indian dialects) you can make Want to know more about this recipe?

Rasmalai [Flattened Cheese Dumplings in Flavored Milk]

If you like paneer or if you like milk sweets and a strong sweet tooth, this dessert is just for you. Rasmalai is flattened paneer dumplings first soaked in sugar syrup and then in flavored thickened milk, sounds inviting isn’t it? I’m not always on the lookout for shortcut recipes but when making desserts especially time-consuming ones I wouldn’t mind taking a detour for a shorter version. I started out to make Rasgullas (puffed paneer Want to know more about this recipe?

Niramish Alu Dom [Spicy Baby Potato Gravy]

My site is filled with only Niramish aka Vegetarian dishes then why the heck did I name this recipe Niramish? It’s not me, this recipe is from bongcookbook and according to “BongMom”, when Bengalis cook vegetarian dishes they would explicitly name them vegetarian and I didn’t want to spoil the originality of this recipe. While searching for Bengali recipes I’ve learnt few words and slang that Bong aka Bengalis typically use. More importantly got little Want to know more about this recipe?

Brigadeiro with Cookie Butter

I don’t know why but I have a strong urge to try a recipe that has some uniqueness attached either in their name, origin, or ingredients. I had many recipes bookmarked from Vaishali’s blog(my blog hop partner for this month) but this recipe totally caught my eye not just with its name but with just 3 ingredients its amazingly very simple to make, isn’t that what we all eagerly search for in a recipe? It’s Want to know more about this recipe?
