Rose Syrup
An exotic and deliciously fragrant syrup that can be used in many ways. Drizzle over crepes, kulfi (indian ice-cream) or add it to milk and desserts or use it in baking or in cocktails for a subtle rose flavoring.

Thank you +Shamsa A.  . The one I made is rose syrup. I never used rose water growing up but now I do use  every day to keep my skin hydrated and refreshed:)
Making a cake with same a batter is also a good idea. In fact I have done it too. It was more like a grown up cake with a lattice icing just for decoration.

Coconut Quinoa Breakfast Salad
My family and I eat tons of fruit all year long but I hate to see the mango season go. So to say farewell to my beloved mangoes and to celebrate my 4th blogiversary, I have this wonderful tasting Quinoa breakfast salad with mangoes, pineapple and strawberries. It’s elegant, refreshing, nutrient rich and a perfect summer fare.

There are several types of orchid. I have one that gives flower after alternate years.
There is a marriage in a close friend's family and then I have other important things that need my full attention.

Here are a few that I took pictures of. Each recipe is flavorful, healthy, and amazingly delicious, and I highly recommend you to try.

Eid Mubarak to my friends who celebrate it.
As Eid and Seviyan go hand in hand here's my recipe for yummy gluten free seviyan. This is made from brown rice vermicelli which is easily available in Asian and main stream grocery stores.

+Balvinder Ubi mixed communities are a lot of fun. We learn a lot from each other...the most important one being love and respect.
Childhood memories are always the best. The hands of grandmas and moms always gave magic in them...be it cooking or a comforting caress.

Muffin Frittata
Breakfast doesn’t have to be time consuming and complicated. These muffin frittatas are super easy and takes no more than 20 minutes to make. The recipe can be adapted in any way, shape or form you wish, with any ingredients you want.

I don't hesitate to say that I love pizza. This gluten free pizza is topped with curry chicken and kale, a wonderful combination, that is more delicious than you can imagine.

NO BAKE MANGO PHIRNI TART - MY DADDY BESTEST
Daddy always knew everything. He was my Superman, my hero, the person I loved most in the world, more than Mom. As a little girl I would hop, skip beside him holding his little finger tight, as if it was my anchor, something which would be my sturdy support...

Story
Tagline
Love to cook nutritious meals and putting healthy twist to classic recipes.
Introduction
A daughter, a wife and a mother. This is how people know me and perhaps describe me. What they don't see behind the roles is the woman who help (work for) her husband in his business and love to do gardening and write a food blog in free time.
Bragging rights
Cooking gives me satisfaction and I feel it is a way to show people that you love them. I can’t escape from this even if sometimes I want to, first its in my blood, I have seen my mother, aunts and other women in family doing the same, not as a chore but as providing nourishing meals to their family. Second cooking has become my passion and third I am gluten free. Cooking it myself gives me freedom to choose the ingredients that I want.
