Vermicelli Idli’s ( steamed savory vermicelli cakes)

Vermicelli Idli’s! Who would have thought of making idli’s with vermicelli? May be it’s common, but I haven’t come across these before.  So I when I first saw this on my FB foodie group, posted by Shobana ji who blogs at Cooking with Shobana, I knew I had to try this out immediately! Like most things that I dilly dally, in terms of trying out several of the recipes that interest me, having bookmarked like a million ( okay not million, but you get it, don’t you? ) I tried these soon enough!

Today’s post is a guest post, by my dear friend and an amazing home chef, Ujjaini Majumdar. If you have been following my blog, then you have probably come across the name, as I’ve already tried some of her recipes and shared them with you’ll here. I figured it was about time I request her to do a guest post for me, to which she gladly obliged. I connected with Ujjaini through  a foodie group on Facebook. Even though we haven’t met, we struck a chord through each other’s post and thus this beautiful friendship began.  We chat so much, that I feel like I’ve already met her in person, which I hope I do someday 🙂 Continue reading →

Sweet chilli cream cheese sandwich bites

sandwich bites (1)

 

Hi everyone!


It’s been a while since I last blogged. I had a lot of things going around, which included shopping gifts for our relatives in India. It had been a year and a half since we last visited. We also visited London, for my Brother in law’s daughter’s christening.  I also happen to be her Godmother, so I wanted to meet that little bundle of joy. Such a sweet munchkin she is!! Miss her already 🙁 Continue reading →

Soy and spinach croquettes

Hello folks!

I’m back with another healthy, vegan & kid-friendly snack recipe – Soy and spinach croquettes! I had this large box of organic spinach that I got from Costco, I used it at least three times and yet I had about 2 cups remaining. I thought I would experiment with it in the form of croquettes. To add some volume and health quotient  to it, I added Soy granules/TVP. It made for a very interesting combination, they were moist and delicate on the inside, delicious from all the seasonings with a crisp exterior, basically everything you wish for in a deep fried snack 😀 Continue reading →


Schezwan /Sichuan baby potatoes (dry version)

image

Schezwan potatoes is a delicious, hot and tangy Indo Chinese dish. Like most Indo Chinese dishes, it hardly takes much time for this dish to come together. Prepping up your ingredients is the key! Here, boiled and fried baby potatoes are tossed in a schezwan sauce base and of course much easier if you have the sauce already which is the main ingredient here. I love to prepare this schezwan sauce in a big batch and store it, when I run out of ideas or I want quick meals, this is a life saver. I highly recommend you have one in your pantry, or if you’re too lazy to make your own , go ahead and get a good quality store bought one 🙂 Continue reading →
