Recipes | Healthy Dill and Potato Oats Crackers – One opportunity leads directly to another

‘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

Just as risk leads to more risk, one opportunity leads directly to another. And talking about this opportunity, quite honestly, I never thought that such opportunities could come my way through food blogging.

Some days back, I received a call from a representative of a very popular multinational food manufacturing company

Recipe |Easy and healthy Purple cabbage Coleslaw – Life is too short to be anything but happy

Like many other enthusiastic food bloggers, I too started blogging with the notion of organizing my recipes and connecting with like-minded people.

Little did I know that this simple hobby of mine would bestow me with countless precious gifts and many remarkable moments of life to cherish. Good friends, hours of endless entertainment and wonderful creative outlet are a few.

I recently had a chance to attend IFBM 2014 in Bangalore, which was organized exclusively for Indian food bloggers.

Baking | Indian Parathas Calzone Way – There is nothing better than being able to bring a smile on  someones face

There is nothing better than being able to bring a smile to someones face and make them happy. Yes, I did it again!
I have other commitments lined up for this week already and I may not be able to take up this project. Moreover I am not a professional photographer, I can ony style the food to some extent. And doing 60 dishes in such a short span of time is practically impossible.” I replied showing my helplessness to accept the said project to my friend ‘P’ on phone.

Recipes | Healthy and Refreshing Indian Summer Mocktails with Barley, Jamun and Plums

Nothing screams summer like dark, plump and fleshy Jamun or Java plums. Local markets in many places of India gets flooded with these purple beauties during summer months.

I remember how crazy we were to buy a handful of salted Jamuns wrapped loosely in a newspaper (yes, you read it right) from an old lady outside our school premise. And the stubborn purple stain on our uniform, tongue and hands would never let us hide our mischief from mom.

Recipe | Fresh Plums and Tofu Kofta Curry with Tawa Pulav –  My race against time

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough” ~ Oprah

Back then I had loads of time in hand. My home and life was well organized and I never knew what ‘racing against time’ meant.

I was happy, but still felt a void in life and was searching for ways to fill it. As they say, change your perspective when you think your life is incomplete without something.

And then, food blogging happened.

Now the equation of life has changed. Five days to go for a food blogger meet, a deadline to meet for print media and a high-pressure photo shoot on very short notice.

And yes, I am racing against time…but I am content :)

Recipe | Fresh Plum and Almond Pudding aka Aloobukhara Phirni and a contest on IFBM

Firni is a delightful healthy dessert and could be cooked without much efforts. An earthen pot is a perfect vessel to set this dessert, as the porous surface of the pot will absorb water leaving a thick & creamy Firni behind.

The tart small Plums, mildly sweet coconut milk and the nutty almonds give a  wonderful burst of flavors and taste to this creamy rich Phirni.

Recipes | Instant Oats Idly Satay with crunchy peanut sauce – Coming out of the comfort zone again

Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.” ~ Paulo Coelho

Life throws challenges when we least expect it. I received a call from ‘Deccan Chronicle’, an Indian daily news paper the other day.

We have been browsing your blog and are very impressed, would you consider being a columnist for our daily?” a media representative inquired in a sweet voice on other end.

With on- going workshops and a food styling project I was not sure if I can commit myself for one another work. I asked her a days time to decide and called my hubby.

I feel you should take up this challenge. I can see you getting lazy and comfortable within your comfort zone. This might help you create new possibilities in your career” He answered.

Recipes | Healthy Indian snack called  Muthiya and an exciting food blogger meet

I have attended many blogger conferences over the last few years but have never been so excited for a meet, ever. Yes, I am referring to IFBM here, our very first Food blogger meet at Bangalore next month.
It is really hard to hold back the excitement of meeting many of my virtual food blogger friends whose blogs I have been reading and admiring time and again. Oh..well, I am making and packing the special South Indian lentil-spice mix in the picture above for some of my blogger friends who have asked for it.

Did I tell you that many of us will be sharing same apartments for close to three days….start music…it is party time :)

Recipes | Finger Millet Bread and Wheat Bran Slices – When the going gets tough, bake a bread

I picked up the bowl, pulled out the soft & sticky dough, placed it on my wooden board and started punching it vigorously.

Yes, you got it right, I am baking bread again. Well, with the dates of an important family function nearing, bread making should be the last thing on my mind.

But then, when your to-do list is a mile long and it is getting difficult to focus on the mounting task at hand I resort to baking bread.

Baking bread at home is the best remedy when nothing is working and you don’t know where to start.
