Mango Panna Cotta

If you are ever in doubt of what dessert to make for a party or for random mid-week indulgence, go for a Panna Cotta. It’s the easiest thing that one can pull off with absolutely minimal effort. Every time I make something as simple as a panna cotta, I wonder why don’t I make it more often! I made Mango Panna Cotta last week. It was absolutely luscious, velvety and so smooth to the palate.

Mango Cardamom No-Churn Ice Cream

Creamy mango with aromatic cardamom is a foolproof flavor pairing combination. When you add sweet dairy to this combination, it becomes an absolute indulgence! This Mango Cardamom No-Churn Ice Cream made three kids and four adults very happy on the Memorial Day weekend barbecue party. The best thing about this ice cream is that it is very simple to make. You don’t need an ice cream machine and still get the luscious smooth texture.

EASY Flan / Creme Caramel

Gently jiggling, sitting on a pool of dark caramel sauce! The contrast of this rich eggy custard with the faintly burnt taste of caramel is what makes crème caramel or flan so special.

Almond Lemon Waffles

Few months back, we bought our first waffle maker. We have always loved waffles but somehow it took us a long time to get one of those gadgets. I just try not to crowd the kitchen with appliances. But thanks to the waffle maker, our weekend breakfast got easy. Most weekends, I like to serve something that takes more time to prepare than usual. But then on some weekends, I just want to make a fancy breakfast without putting any effort at all. On these lazy mornings, I make this Almond Lemon Waffles with colorful berries and whipped cream.

Mascarpone White Chocolate Caramel Cappuccino Semifreddo

Frozen treats for coffee lovers because it has the flavor of white chocolate, caramel, coffee and the richness of mascarpone cheese. So good and so easy that you would want to make it all summer long. And the best part is that it doesn’t need an ice cream machine. No churning and yet, the end result turns out creamy. However, it doesn’t get hard like an ice cream. Semifreddo are semi-frozen treats that fall under the category of ice cream but the texture is much softer, seems like a frozen mousse. If you enjoy soft serve ice cream like me,…

Growing up, chicken was usually prepared couple of times a week at home. And almost every time, it was painted with lot of spices and slow cooked or pressure-cooked until the meat is tender and the gravy is rich red in color. I never got bored of it. I looked forward to it every single time. That’s still my favorite chicken curry. Over the period of time, with the help of several food blogs and our ever-curious taste buds, I learnt handful other chicken dishes. I would prepare these recipes on a random basis over and over again. Few weeks…

Date Palm Jaggery Ice Cream

My day-to-day schedule is busy and boring at the same time. It does get quite monotonous. There are several moments when I get so frustrated or sleep deprived and I am always tired. Then something amazing happens, making every bit so worth it. Like the Mothers Day weekend, which could have been a typical lunch out weekend, but it twirled into quite an action-packed one.

Cherry Ice Cream

My man loves ice cream. If given a choice, he would love to have it everyday, before and after every meal. So you can imagine his reaction when he realized that I don’t like ice cream.

He said ‘Let me grab some ice cream for us’
