Tomato Garlic Confit with some fresh basil on top is a super easy and uber delicious appetizer. It will take less than 5 minutes to prep and 40 minutes in the oven. You can toss Tomato Garlic Confit with pasta, top it on risotto, rice or enjoy with grilled meat and fish. We finished it with some crusty sourdough bread, pretty much wiped the plate clean with the last slice of the bread.
Loaded with robust pungent flavor of garlic, this Garlic Chicken - Lehsuni Murgh is one of the easiest Indian chicken curries to prepare. It doesn’t call for a long list of spices but instead a lot of fresh garlic. Lehsun is garlic and murgh is chicken.
This roasted garlic mushroom is an easy, no fuss delicious dish that pairs best with some rustic bread. It’s a toss-everything-together and forget about it for the next 20 minutes kind of a meal. If you like garlic and mushroom, you will absolutely love this and probably make it on repeat. All it needs is 5 Key ingredients!
One of my absolute favorite things that I can eat any time are chicken wings, even when I am not hungry! I pretty much love it with all kinds of sauce as long as it’s not super spicy. However, my number one flavor choice is this Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings. So crispy, so flavorsome and a must for trying if you enjoy ton load of garlic.
As some of you might know from my Insta-stories, I am on a vacation right now! We are on a much-needed fun and relaxing break. We don’t have any major plans except for eating a ton of food, relaxing and strolling around the streets! So, during this time, I will have some of my amazing friends sharing their recipes with you. I am starting it with this delicious Creamy Butter Garlic Shrimp Pasta by Richa from My Food Story. We can never have enough pasta and I am always looking for easy pasta recipes that can be whipped up quickly…
As a kid, red amarathan was my favorite green. In fact, it was a magical green for me. Like most kids, I was not a big fan of greens but this magical green, when stir-fried and mixed with cooked rice, would turn into this gorgeous hue of pink. Pretty amazing! My aunt’s backyard was filled with red amarathan and a visit to her house meant helping aunt pick those leaves and then patiently waiting for lunchtime. It was quite a happy moment for my Mom because both my brother and I were super picky eaters. I find the taste of swiss…
Happy New Year friend! If you follow my Instagram stories or read my last blog post, you know that we recently moved back to California. Hence, the long break. We arrived here on 1st of December. In my last post, I had mentioned about our worries for 22 hours of long flight with a toddler. Guess what! To our biggest surprise, the little guy was a complete sport. He was not fussy, slept properly, didn’t eat a lot but was happy. He actually enjoyed the journey and made it just so easy for us.
I am not crazy about mushrooms but somehow, I find myself reaching to it every time I need a quick meal. And these days, I need speedy meals quite often throughout the week. Last month, when I did the lunch spread, there was a mushroom and sausage side dish prepared with red wine. The dish was a big hit. Everyone loved it and there were no leftovers. It was quite luscious and rich.
Roasted chickpea flavored with garlic, chili and fresh mint makes for a light and nutritional snack to kill that odd hour hunger pang. Scattered on plain yogurt or tossed with salad, layered on toast or just plain, accompanied with a chilled fizzy drink. Either way, it’s addictive and guilt free!
When it rains back to back, giving you that terrible cold and the medicine just wrecks your taste buds to the core, you need something with a smack! I always go for spicy, warm and comforting meals. Sometimes soup and sometimes, a hearty chicken stew. This garlic and pepper chicken came to our rescue with the warmth and spice, helped us to boost our palate and bring our tastes buds back on track.
Scheduling and planning outlines all my weekdays. It not only helps in retaining my sanity but it also succeeds in getting me some rest. Though at times, I can’t really decide between snoozing along with my boy and finishing work. With Arvind’s long working hours and Avyan’s toddler tantrums; I almost always pick the quick nap. Even a short 30 minutes help me gain back some energy, which is absolutely required to keep up with the always-busy little boy. Over the weekends, I let go the entire routine. We prepare breakfast together and make it an extra special one. We…
In my world of wish-I-had-more-time, dishes like these come superbly handy. A little chopping, a quick sauté and dinner is prepared. We don’t eat rice that often, but it was a clever idea to cook some on Sunday night so that Monday starts off on a great note. Good leftovers somehow help kick the blues. Knowing that you have more time to play with your baby and less time in the kitchen, it is bliss! Plus I was able to send my husband off to work with a delicious lunch box. It was a good start to a new week.
