Recipe | Quick Fried Rice with Capsicum and Almonds – It’s all Greek to me..

Any recognition feels good, as it is a reward and an affirmation of what one does…Hmm..agreed. But what one does when one is featured in two different magazines and is still trying to decipher what is written in there.

Google translation of both the articles makes it a comic read. Well, sometimes, somethings are best if left unsaid. Hoping good is written about me :)  here is how it all started…

The other day I received this mail from the editor of a popular Italian magazine;

Recipes | Three Quick Indian Stir-fry recipes aka Subzis

A Subzi or vegetable stir-fry is an integral part of an Indian Thali (platter). If Subzi is one of the important components alongside a flat bread in a North Indian thali then it takes the form of an accompaniment to rice dishes in South India.

Subzi also refers to any vegetable in Hindi. I like these quick subzis made with fresh vegetables more than the slow-cooked curries wherein the vegetables are completely lost in the flavors of spices and gravies they are cooked in. Whether it is a rich Peas and paneer butter masala or a creamy malai kofta, to me they all taste same.

Recipes | Three easy Indian Stir-Fry recipes aka Subzis – Simple food big flavors

I am jealous of your husband and kids, they get to eat five-star cooking every day” was one of the questions in an online interview on Ganga’s blog here. And she is the nth person to have said the same to me.

The fact remains that most of days what comes out of my kitchen is a simple one-skillet meal with whatever spices or vegetables I have on hand. Yes, my personal favorite is simple Indian food which is quick to cook and is very near to its natural state.

Well…competing for the title of Master Chef is never in my mind, every time that I take a ladle in my hand :)

Recipes | Healthy Wholegrain and Lentil Crepes with quick Spreads – Memories which root us in a time and place

Growing up, we used to visit our granny every holiday. Reaching late at her house and being treated with warm and comforting Bajra khichda (millet porridge) was the best part of our trip.

She would welcome us with a sweet smile and rush to her kitchen to cook a quick meal. The wooden hearth would be hurriedly filled with charcoal to light the fire. She would then open the large round aluminum box placed neatly on wooden shelf and take out handful of wholegrain and lentil grits from it.

Recipe | Healthy Papdi Chaat Tarts- It’s all about sharing my love for food

“What keeps me motivated is not the food itself but all the bonds and memories the food represents.” M. Chiarello
I was slightly disturbed reading a message from a reader last evening which read like this “I love your recipes, but please include step-wise pictures of the recipes and increase the frequency of your blogposts.”
To which my reply was, “I am glad that you like the recipes here. But please understand that Lite Bite is not just a recipe blog, it’s my personal diary where I also love to share my …

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.

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.
