Vegetable Chow Mein

Crunchy stir-fried noodles with colorful vegetables, all sautéed in a perfect savory umami-like sauce. Quick and easy, this Indian street-food style Vegetable Chow Mein is a favorite in our home. The trick is to make sure that the noodles are neither dry nor mushy and as a result will give the perfect al-dente texture.

Vegetable Chow Mein makes a great after-school snack or even a full meal. You could add chicken or…

Soba Noodle With Chimichurri and Paneer

When my mother in-law left a month back, life got a little challenging. She was here for a couple of months and I am so very grateful to her for all her time and support.

So, I convinced her and myself that I could do it. It was a little difficult initially but then slowly things started to settle down. The first time that I gave my baby a massage…
