Mini Oat Tarts with Mixed Fruit & Yogurt Filling – Healthy Dessert to Indulge

Think of a dessert and fresh fruits top my list hands down. A bowl of sliced juicy strawberries, apples and grapes sprinkled with castor sugar or with fresh yogurt is what I and my hubby crave for. There is always a difference of opinion at home, my children love to settle for a  chocolate bar if there is just plain fruits for dessert. But they look pretty cool of late, now that they know their food blogger mama  needs to update her blog with a recipe every week 🙂

Grilled Cottage Cheese, Soya Chunks and Veggies in Spicy Yogurt – A Perfect Appetizer

Grilling is probably one of the best way to enjoy a whole lot of veggies which I find it difficult to use in my normal day Indian recipes. I often use cottage cheese and Tofu in many of my recipes but cherry tomatoes and colored capsicum find its place in salads only. And eating soya nuggets and raw capsicum in salads is a big ‘No’ for my children with the exception of these Kebabs which is their favorite snack.

Legumes Made Easy – A Few Refreshing Yogurt Recipes

The refreshing and creamy yogurt concoction also known as Kadhi is almost a staple weekend lunch for my family. When paired with plain hot rice or Khichdi with a dollop of fresh ghee and a papad to accompany, this yogurt delicacy is a heavenly delight!

I make a few versions of this yogurt recipe, at times adding steamed dumplings made with chickpea flour and seasoned with various greens and spices. And have done small variations in my Kadhi by adding coconut and cumin paste from the recipe of Mor Kolumbu from the cuisine of South India. Coconuts in it gives a body to the recipe besides the wonderful flavors and aromas of cumin and curry leaves.

A Refreshing Yogurt & Strawberry Dessert

There is nothing special in this dessert except the fact that I wanted to try my hands on Macarons. I do lots of baking but mine is restricted to just cakes, muffins, cookies and bread. Never got inclined to baking anything lying outside my territory. The pretty & colorful Macarons posted in many fellow bloggers got me attracted.

Party Menu – Easy Vegetable Fried Rice & Yogurt Raita

Vegetable fried rice with fresh yogurt Raita is what I count upon for a quick meal when unexpected guests arrive at home. There are countless ways this humble recipe can be prepared using various spice mixes and veggies to go in it. But my favorite is this simple recipe of fried rice cooked using Basmati rice, seasonal veggies and a few spices. For my mega party too, I chose the same recipe and it came out very flavorful and delicious. I served this vegetable rice with fresh Yogurt Raita.

Party Menu – Refreshing Yogurt Rice

Yogurt rice is the most relishing recipe I discovered after coming to South India. Till then curd was just a tall glass of Lassie or a delicate dessert Srikhand. Only after getting married I did come to know that the humble Curd can also be transformed into a very delicious and healthy meal! And like my hubby for many people down here, no meal is complete without a small ladle of creamy curd rice. Quite easy to make this refreshing dish adorns many a lunchboxes of office goers and school kids.

Recipe & Food Styling | Healthy Broccoli and Amaranth leaves Flat-breads – Things that keep me busy, happy and sane..

When you take the step towards your dreams, you will be met with fears because you have never traveled this way before. As you go, you will discover that you had nothing to fear.” ~ Gardner

Rewind a few years back to when I used to get panic attacks whenever a couple of projects land in a span of few days. I would become anxious and stressed out as the deadlines draw near. It was a real tough time to find a point of balance between my career and personal life, more so when you are passionately inclined towards both.

However, with over seven years of work experience in the industry, I now feel more at ease with myself.

Recipe & Food Styling | Quick potato curry and spinach bedmi pooris – When pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work..

When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.” ~ Nancy coey

I received a call from Maheshwar (photographer) few days back for a client meet and decided to visit their office to discuss about the food shoot and have a look at the kitchen.

As I enter their newly constructed terrace kitchen cum office, a sudden waft of an interesting mix of Indian spices welcomed me. It’s 10 am and I can see the kitchen buzzing with activities, as large pots of curries are stirred in one corner and rice is steamed in another.

Recipe & Food Styling | Shahi Mushroom Curry – To jump off the cliff and learn how to make wings on the way down..

The lessons you learn the hard way are always the ones that stick…

All along, and ever since I was first exposed to commercial food styling shoots, it really hit me to think that how smooth my transition would have been had there been someone to guide me through the nitty gritty of food styling.

Back then, I was fairly new to the commercial world of food styling and had no mentor whom I could observe or assist. I had to jump off the cliff and learn how to make wings on the way down 🙂
