{NEW} Cardamom flavored Matcha and Red Bean stuffed Chinese Steamed Buns, a great holiday treat! http://www.abrowntable.com/home/matcha-red-bean-chinese-steamed-buns
Though you can prepare and eat these at any time of the year, these matcha and red bean Chinese steamed buns make the perfect holiday treat. Green on the outside and red on the inside, these little spongy buns are filled with sweet goodness! Eat them as dessert or include them in your breakfast or brunch menu, either way I think they need to become a holiday staple.  I've been meaning to update a rather old post of mine for Chinese ste...

It's no secret that I LOVE sweet potatoes (I even affectionally refer to Snoopy as one)! Every year at this time, I look forward to sweet potato pie. I eat one before the week of Thanksgiving, one during the week of and another one after. This is my holiday ritual which should have begun last week but we hit a snag when I went to the bakery at our local grocery store to look for one. (Now, I would have made myself one but it was midweek...

I love frozen desserts, it's no secret that I'll be glad to eat them at any given time of the year, regardless of what the weather decides it wants to do. Everyone has their comfort food and desserts, frozen ones are just one facet of food that can provide that satisfying feeling of goodness.  I've been dreaming of concocting a kulfi recipe this year, one that would be a little "fall-ish" and also have some sort of herbal infusion in it...

NEW} Crispy little cauliflower pakoras with a little Parmesan and Sriracha! http://www.abrowntable.com/home/cauliflower-parmesan-pakoras
The most exciting part about Halloween is watching reruns of old horror and sci-fi movies on TV. I don't think my Halloween week would be complete with getting in a Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee and/or Bela Lugosi movie. Today was the perfect day to do just that, we had a much needed day of heavy rain in the Bay Area and it was definitely chilly. Snoopy and I, curled up next to each other, caught in a few movies while ...

{NEW} I have a recipe for Dosas and Uttapams on the blog today. They are gluten-free savory crêpes and pancakes made from ground lentils and rice. #glutenfree   #vegan  
http://www.abrowntable.com/home/dosas-and-uttapams
I love dosas and uttapams, they are one of the tastiest savory crêpes and pancakes from the Southern states of India. Since they are made from ground lentils and rice, they are also gluten-free and vegan but either way they are good! One of my closest friends from grad school is of South Indian origin, every time, I visit her family in New Orleans, dosas are the first thing I ask for because her mom makes them the best.  Several year...

{NEW} A recipe to use up some of those #Thanksgiving leftovers, a simple yet flavorful turkey quinoa biryani! http://www.abrowntable.com/home/leftover-turkey-quinoa-biryani
A couple of fun things happened this week besides, Thanksgiving and all the pies I ate. This interview I did with the folks at Blikki Magazine  and some tips on food photography and Instagram that I shared at The Kitchn. Do check them out when you can. How was your Thanksgiving? I hope you got to eat plenty but more importantly had a fun time with your loved ones. My Thanksgiving on the other hand was an odd one this year, it was rat...

{NEW} Cranberry Walnut Cream Whole Rye Tartlets (with little bit of red wine)!
http://www.abrowntable.com/home/cranberry-walnut-cream-whole-rye-tartlets
Let me just start this post by saying, that if you enjoy a buttery and nutty flavored pastry then this tartlet recipe is for you. If you like the taste and flavor of rye flour then you will enjoy this pastry.  I've been practicing making several different types of classical pastries at home but using whole grain based flours. They make a richer and more flavorful pastry base though they can be tricky to work with depending on the typ...

{NEW} A little bit of experimentation with chickpea flour led to this lovely Yeasted Chickpea Parmesan and Herb Bread. #glutenfree  http://www.abrowntable.com/home/yeasted-chickpea-parmesan-and-herb-bread
My favorite part about cooking is the opportunity to experiment in the kitchen, however crazy the idea might sound, it's fun! Things generally never work on the first try when I'm trying out something new, my failed experiments generally involve a lot of scribbled notes on paper stained with food, there'll be asterisks to indicate what I should try to modify the next time round, basically it resembles a college student's chemistry lab...

{NEW} Happy Halloween! I made some dark chocolate truffles filled with pumpkin and almond and sprinkled with a little sea salt and black pepper. #chocolate   #foodphotography   #recipes  
http://www.abrowntable.com/home/dark-chocolate-pumpkin-and-almond-truffles-with-sea-salt-and-black-pepper
I'm an accidentally messy person in the kitchen! Even with the best of intentions and precautionary setups, I fail because I am clumsy at times. There are times when I try to make clean moves with a lot of effort but end up tackling something else and things spill. On other occasions, it might not be me but it might be my environment. All of this somehow gets even more amplified when I work with chocolate and cocoa. Melted chocolate goe...

{NEW} Indian Rice Pudding/ Kheer that I made for Diwali ! #food  
http://www.abrowntable.com/home/kheer
Diwali is the festival of lights and perhaps one of my favorite holidays that I got to spend with my dad's side of the family. The celebrations were never over the top but there would be little oil lamps lit up in the evening and tasty food served. I looked forward to the huge feast that was to follow and all the desserts. Delicious desserts, in all sorts of shapes and sizes that are amazing! Every year when Diwali arrives, my cravings ...

{NEW} Pan-seared Stuffed Bell Peppers with a spiced pea and potato filling!

http://www.abrowntable.com/home/stuffed-bell-peppers
One would think nightmares concerning exams and tests stop after school. Nope, they don't, well at least for me, they haven't! Probably once a month, I have a calculus meets language exam dream that will freak me out. I can never remember all the details but from what I do recall, the dream involves me sitting in a classroom, trying to figure out the answers to questions involving limits and integrals in a different language, a langua...
