Strawberry souffle 2

Quite a few of my readers have been enquiring why I was missing from action. Some were concerned about my health as well. A heartfelt thanks to all those caring souls. I am touched indeed. Well, this year has been busy so far. Had guests coming over and rest of the times, I was busy searching with one thing or the other. After a long break, here I am with something sweet, dedicate to all you readers. :)

My neighbour gave me some strawberries today morning. I couldn’t wait to put it into good use. Had been thinking of making strawberry souffle for some time now. Why wait, right ? Continue Reading »

Cheers to New Year !! A year of health and happiness, wealth and wisdom, peace and prosperity, glee and glow and love and laughter !!
What better that a glass of wine to toast for a New Year ? My Mom always makes wine at home. I do not take wine and so never bothered to make them myself. Quite a lot of my blog followers had requested for the Grape wine recipe. When sending the recipe individually to everyone became difficult, I decided to make them myself. So here’s the recipe for those readers who have been asking it. :) Continue Reading »

Chettinad fish fry

My search for a ‘different type’ of fish fry recipe led me to this one. The ingredients looked so interesting that I decided to double the amount. I took half the masala and stored the remaining masala in an airtight container in the freezer. My parents were also with us to taste this new recipe and all of us loved it. A recipe for keeps. :) Continue Reading »

Plum cake 1

Whenever anybody mentions ‘Plum Cake’, the first thought that comes to my mind is from my childhood days. Back in those days, for every Christian wedding, guests were served a piece of dark plum cake, neatly wrapped in a butter paper and sealed with a sticker bearing the name of the bakery. I developed a hatred for this cake, so much that I even refused to taste them, no matter who made it. Whenever my Mom made cakes during Christmas season, I would request her to bake a cake separately for me, minus the dark caramel and dried fruits, to which she always obliged. As time flew past, the intensity of my hatred reduced to dislike. However I always hesitated to bake plum cakes. Continue Reading »

Sometimes, my maid gets me the freshest fish and our dicussions veers towards different Tamil dishes. One such dish that caught my fancy was Sura Puttu. Initially I thought that she was talking about Kerala’s popular breakfast Puttu. Only when she explained the process did I understand that it was totally different. Sura, in Tamil is Shark. Though ideally, this dish is to be prepared with Shark meat, I prepared it with Mackerel. This dish goes very well with rice. Continue Reading »

Goan Fish Curry

I have so many recipes to be tried out in my “to-do” list. One such recipe was the Goan Fish Curry. So, this time when I bought fish, I didn’t have to rack my brain to decide which recipe to follow. As usual, I looked into Goan Food Recipes blog, my go-to space for any Goan recipes :) On reading through, I realised that the preparation is pretty much the same to Kerala Style Meen Maanga Thenga Arachu Vachathu. The only difference is that no curry leaves is used in the Goan preparation. Continue Reading »
