Mango mascarpone cream cheesecake with a hint of cardamom
Have I told you that mango is my favorite fruit? I guess I have. It is just not possible for me not to post a recipe when it is a mango season. Here's an easy to make,  #eggless   and #nobake   #dessert . This is my number one favorite summer desserts  I love to make, especially if I have last minute company or short on time.
I am dedicating this cake to two of my friends, one who is celebrating her daughter's 10th birthday and the other one her 10th wedding anniversary.
Sending infinite love, hugs and best wishes to both. Enjoy the cake!

Cucumber Mint Gazpacho With Lemon The term ‘Gazpacho’ need not be a put off to any of you perhaps unfamiliar with the same. It merely refers to a cold soup. Preparing a meal often encompasses lots of chopping, pots clanging, heated ‘dialogues’ between the…

You can find the recipe here:  http://www.simpleglutenfreekitchen.com/2012/09/dahi-methi-murg.html
 
I usually visit all my foodie friends blogs/ pages when ever I see their new post... there are four most favourites people and thier blogs I just visit every day. Search and read their old posts some time over and over the same reciep..😂😂😂 😂 ( kind of addiction )

She is one of them and her recipes are gluten free.(now you all know I'm talking about whom) I was keep on trying for so many days atleast to make one of her recipes but I was just unable to do it. But late week when I bought chicken remember that recently I read a chicken recipe which is done with few simple ingredients. I made it..
So here my lovely friend

I am truly a biryani lover +Soma Saha Ray  regardless of the place its from. 
 
This Chicken Biryani with potato is typical of Kolkata....you perhaps will no where find outside Bengal.....we love potato...perhaps may be so its used....We have a special love for Mughal Cuisine....Origin of Biryani in Bengal dates back to Wajed Ali Shah's deportation to Kolkata where he brought his own cooks....eversince Bengal's tryst with Lucknowi style Biryani started....they also add a boiled egg to it....but I skipped. It is impossible to know the exact recipe of the authentic biryani the ustads make....the recipe handed down from one generation to other....I explored various recipes and tried to be near with the flavour and taste.....the ghee...kewra water and mixed spices makes it flavourful....

This recipe of #amritsarifish    from +Soma Saha Ray  will sure to get you drooling. Eat it as an appetizer or a side dish.
 
Amritsar....popularly known all over India and abroad for the Golden Temple...I am yet to visit....hence I did not taste Amritsari Macchi /Fish Amritsari in Amritsar itself....cannot vouch for its authenticity but definitely can say it is a perfect combi of spice...flavour and crunch....crispy fish fries.... I had it first at Kolkata restaurants and later explored through net for the recipe....It is very convenient and easy to prepare this fish....Usually it is to be had as an appetiser but I prepared it yesterday night to serve with Jeera(cumin) rice....

Treat yourself to a summer bean salad with mint mango dressing from +maria nasir 
 
Beans Salad with Mint Mango Dressing :

Healthy food doesn’t have to taste like vitamin pills ! This salad tastes of summer freshness; loaded with minty, tangy flavours, crispy crunch and meaty satisfaction from the beans .

Stir in some pasta to make a complete meal in one plate and, if you are super hungry, top it with some boiled or poached egg…yum!

Makes a perfect side for grilled food.

I have never actually eaten a cannoli before. One of the reasons is that they are hard to find in the U.S. Also, the cream and candied fruit filling does not really strike up a craving. Upon further research, I have found that chocolate chips can be used and that the fruit can be excluded.

Dil hoom hoom Kare....
After so many years, I heard this song on radio  by Bhupen Hazarika. The music and the lyrics are just beautiful. It conveys sadness but even then you can listen to it again and again.
 
My heart is gasping, it shivers in fear
 
The clouds are thundering, my heart becomes afraid
A drop of water sometimes flows from my eyes
My heart is gasping, it shivers in fear
 When I spread (open) your bag, all the dry leaves come
When you touch me, my dry branch (body) becomes green
 
My heart is gasping, it shivers in fear
 
The body that you touched, I am hiding that body
The mind that you saw with your eyes, who do I show that to?
Oh my moon, your moonlight burns my body
You are up on a high balcony; I have cut off my wings
 
My heart is gasping, it shivers in fear
 
Translation not by me

+Hasnat Shah Yes that song was sung by Kabban Mrza and it is superb. Undoubtedly Mehdi Hasan was one of the best and finest gazal singers. And I quote gazal maestro Jagjit Singh's words here "There has never been a ghazal singer of his calibre, nor is there likely to be one." 
No Mr. Hasan I haven't made the video.

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.
