After few horrible turbulences and long flight hours, I finally reached home :) The weather is neither cold nor too warm and surprisingly, I am enjoying the humidity. It's hardly been a day and I have already eaten a lot of my favorite dishes. I am sure to gain some holiday weight ;) Our first guest during the holiday season is Soma from eCurry whose recipes have always been a hit at my home. I have learnt a lot from her, like how to make the perfect Butter Chicken or how to make Naan and also my favorite - Sondesh.

How is the festive season going for you guys? I can feel it everywhere; shopping malls are always packed, halloween costumes are getting stitched and kids are all excited about the 'treat or trick'; it's the fun time of the year :) A delicious meal doesn't call for any celebration or festival but all celebrations or festivals calls for a delicious meal. This festive month, for the first time in my life, I have been cooking non-stop and enjoying every bit it. Few days back, I tried making Stuffed naan and kind of surprised myself with how perfect they came out!

There are gifts being exchanged, families get together and there is always something special getting prepared in the kitchen.

Beet Chop/Beetroot Patty – My twist on a street food from Kolkata

The word chop is usually related to meat, like pork chop or lamb chop but in this recipe, it means a deep-fried or pan-fried patty. In Kolkata (situated in east of India), chop is a very common roadside snack bite. These snacks are made with vegetables, fish or egg; mixed with boiled potatoes, some spice mix or herbs and then, either pan-fried or deep-fried. It's one of those perfect, savory snacks that should be enjoyed with your loved ones over a cup of evening tea or coffee. It can also be served as a finger food in a cocktail party with some…

It’s all about Pumpkins!

Pumpkins have always been my all-time favorite and no matter the different ways that Mom would cook it, it was always a delicious meal. For a kid who never enjoyed food, even something as simple as a boiled mashed pumpkin with some hot white rice would bring a smile on my face and I would finish the whole plate without any fuss!

Achari Murg – Tangy Pickled Chicken

The husband has a common complain these days.. I cook mainly for the blog! He gets to eat all the food that is prepared in my tiny kitchen and yet, the complaints :) I am sure most of you are smiling and nodding as you might be in the same situation. Honestly, I can't blame him completely for this.

Tiramisu – A delightful treat for any occasion

Have u ever met anyone who doesn't like Tiramisu? Well, I haven't. Long back, I had shared a recipe of Strawberry Tiramisu. There was no coffee in it, just filled with lots of juicy strawberries. Along with the recipe, I also shared how and where I had my first bite of Tiramisu. Ever since the first bite, I fell in love with this dessert and till date, I can never get enough of it. It's now my favorite dessert.
