If you like Colocasia then this probably is one of the best ways to cook it - pan fried and crisp, South Indian style.
hough this year has been quite good so far, quite a few things I had planned for just haven't been happening quite in the way I expected. One of those things was getting back to blogging regularly. Unfortunately for me, two episodes of a very bad throat infection and all the stuff that comes ...

Nothing beats Strawberries & Cream when it comes to the best way to enjoy strawberries!
hese are the last strawberries of this season and I must bid them goodbye with a slightly heavy heart. Mangoes are my favourite fruit and strawberries come a close second or third. There was a time when I used to envy all those food blogs that were written by people who lived in strawberry ...

Greek Sesame seeded Easter Cookies. Not very sweet, crunchy and just perfect with coffee or tea.
It's almost the Easter weekend and I thought it might be nice to post something Easter-ish even though we don't celebrate the tradition. I hadn't really set out to make anything with Easter in mind and it was sheer coincidence that these cookies I baked last week turned out to be an Easter ...

An old post, updated with more recent photographs, of an all time favourite in Kerala - Achappam or Rose Cookies.
e are Hindu and don't celebrate Christmas. I have, however, spent a large part of my childhood and adulthood living in places where Christmas is celebrated. Now, my next door neighbour also celebrates Christmas and we look forward to the variety of food, cake and chocolates they always bring ...

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
S ome of you
must be wondering whether there’s a need for one more Hummus recipe to add to
the thousands out there, and I guess probably not. That’s not going to stop me
from posting this because I love chickpeas and so I really like hummus. As we

A slightly different version of the Kerala "Aviyal". This one is made with raw papaya. Try this version for Vishu this year. It's vegetarian and gluten-free though not vegan.
An “Aviyal” is a popular preparation from Kerala where a medley of vegetables such as elavan (ashgourd), raw plantain, elephant yam, drumstick (not from chicken, but a vegetable), egg plant, etc. are cooked together with a spiced coconut paste and yogurt. I don't like raw plantain or elephant ...

My version of the Granary Loaf, with multigrain flakes, whole wheat flour, sprouted finger millet/ ragi flour and an overnight soaker/ sponge.
A somewhat dense but good bread that makes great toast and sandwiches.
here's nothing quite like good old fashioned bread if you ask me - the kind that is hearty, full of flavour and cuts into nice and thick slices. I do like white bread just like most other people but I'm also partial to whole wheat bread and multi-grain bread so I'm always game to bake them when ...
