An Orange Marmalade flavoured with Earl Grey Tea and Ginger.
armalade probably isn't something that children like in general and I found it odd that a children's book character like Paddington Bear favoured Marmalade sandwiches. Then I found out recently, that Paddington Bear was something which was written almost accidentally and the author apparently ...

Fresh Fig & Onion Chutney

like figs and I prefer the fresh fruit to the dried figs which is all we used
to get for a long time as we have always lived very far from the fig growing
areas of India. We all know that figs spoil very quickly and given the lack of

If you like Colocasia, then this is probably one of the best ways to cook it - South Indian style pan fried and crisp.
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
