Pasta primavera is a delicious dish which celebrates the flavors of spring vegetables! The term primavera stands for ‘spring vegetables’! I see no reason why this cannot be enjoyed through out the year. It’s loaded with the goodness of veggies and if it’s cooked with some healthier whole wheat pasta then it definitely is fit to be deemed healthy as well. Continue reading →
Karachi biscuits are popular Indian tea time cookies. These biscuits have derived their name from the famous “Karachi bakery” in Hyderabad, India. They are sweet, crumbly, melt in the mouth, studded with candied fruits and flavored with two of my favorite’s- cardamom and rose.
Frankies are basically wraps, and a popular Indian street food. This potato cheese Frankie is quite popular and the most common one amongst its vegetarian counterparts. I would occasionally indulge on these after my work hours. There was a Frankie stall right outside the railway station serving up both veg and non-veg frankies. At the sight of the piping hot frankies, prepared right in front of you, one couldn’t help but drool until that Frankie made it’s way from the skillet to your plate . Satisfaction for your hunger and tastebuds! Yum!

It comes in 2 varieties, one is hard called kappa and the other is the soft variety called rassal. I prefer the later simply coz when it’s ripe it just melts in the mouth. A lot of people irk at the very mention of the word jackfruit, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and it’s taste is something that has to be acquired. I have been enjoying this exotic fruit every summer vacations spent in Goa, and so I love it ever since I was a child! Continue reading →
