Fritters are so much a part of Indian monsoons and nothing can beat the experience of biting into a piping hot bonda smothered with chutney. What's even better is washing it all down with some hot chai - that's when the spice really hits you! :)
If its pouring cats and dogs where you live, you must make these beetroot bondas!

I am back with another Mangalorean favourite that aptly belongs to the Kapi Falhaar series - the Beetroot Bonda which is also known as the Vegetable or Mixed Veg Bonda in Mangalore. Basic bondas (or fritters) are made with a ...

Sifting through my recipe archives I realised that I had a few recipes from 2012 that I hadn't posted yet. These are from the post natal recipe collection which I believe will be lost and forgotten if I don't post them right away - well, we are almost halfway into 2015 and it was about time!
Sambarachi Pez is a rice gruel flavoured with everyday spices such as coriander, pepper, cumin, mustard and carom seeds (ajwain). Hope it helps all you new moms out there looking for recipes to add to your post delivery menu.

Here's the recipe of a very simple, basic sponge cake that can be served with tea or used as a base for a trifle pudding. Deliciously simple with a lovely hint of lemon zest.

Simple, basic cakes rule the roost at my place. This is mainly because the hubby doesn't prefer fancy schmancy cakes with frosting and all and the kids don't like anything apart from chocolate cakes or cupcakes. I end up alte...

Delicious and succulent pieces of tender goat meat simmered in a pot of spices and coconut milk accompanied with piping hot red boiled rice. Is there a better way to enjoy a traditional Mangalorean meal? Do try it this weekend!

Today started on a really good note. I was woken up by my little son who had his arms around me. He had sneaked up into my bed. My little daughter was still fast asleep when I woke up. The benefit of waking up early on a Frid...

Are there any okra haters out here? If you've only eaten (or not eaten) the sticky, slimy mess of a vegetable all your life and given it up, its about time you enjoyed this lovely vegetable in a simple new avatar. Tastes best with chapathis but when served as an accompaniment to rice and dal can beat your blues away!

One of my favourite veggies is the lady's fingers (also known as okra) and the only way I knew to make them was using the typical Mangalorean oil and onion method where you just toss all the ingredients together and cook them...

Most Mangaloreans I know love their pork as much as they love their seafood. When it comes to pork I think we have very few dishes that are traditional so perhaps this is the reason why Indo-Chinese versions of pork are making their way into our cuisine, at least as far as party menus are concerned. 

Make this as a starter or as a side dish, you are bound to fall in love with it either way!

One of my favourite items on a wedding menu back home is the pork schezwan. This Indo-Chinese dish is so much a part of Mangalorean weddings that every once in a while you will see it featured on the menu. Although a few peop...

If you love and crave for Indo-Chinese food and like to make it yourself then this sauce is a must in your pantry. Made with simple everyday ingredients and little effort this recipe is a keeper. What's more, it is so versatile that you can use it to whip up something as simple as a pulao with an oriental twist in practically no time!

Delicious fish curry to accompany some fresh, piping hot boiled rice! Truly a match made in heaven!

Sometime ago I had mentioned that I wasn't such a good cook when it came to making seafood. Somehow whatever I made didn't quite taste as good as when the hubby made it. I decided to change that for my own good and started ma...

The mercury is rising here in Dubai as in many parts of the world. It's time to get the juicer out and whip up some juicy concoctions that cool the mind and body! So here's a delicious, refreshing mocktail that is very simple to make and takes just a few minutes to put together!

Last week we bought plenty of mangoes to be used in various preparations, however since none of those plans materialised we were left with too many to be eaten so off they went into the blender. Since we are not much of fruit...

Ruchik Randhap is a cookery blog with a focus on traditional Mangalorean cuisine especially Catholic style food. A collection of tried & tested recipes to help beginners
Introduction
I am Shireen Sequeira a Mangalorean living in Dubai. I love trying out new recipes and giving them a twist of my own wherever possible, but I often prefer to stick to the original recipe when I try it out for the first time..this gives me an idea of what the dish would have been like as conceived by its creator. Having learnt cooking pretty much on my own through experiments at every stage of my life, I assure all ye newcomers, that the day is not far when you will have mastered this art called cooking! Hope you enjoy trying out the recipes or simply looking at the pictures...do leave me your valuable feedback - criticism will be well received & taken with a pinch of salt! ;-)
