Going back to the Roots!!!

Recipe: Kappa Masala/Kolli Masala(Tapioca/Cassava Masala)

Though I love to devour all kinds of cuisines and completely enjoy various combination of tastes and flavours, there is something irreplaceable about the authentic, warm and welcoming tastes of our own homeland. There is nothing more comforting than getting back home to your mom's cooking and to the tastes that you have grown up with.

A cake to Celebrate Valentine's Day and a delayed 1st Anniverasry of Kitchen Magic!!!

Recipe: Egg less Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake

A very happy Valentines Day to all my friends, readers and fellow bloggers.
And yes, my little space turned one on November 19, 2012,but unfortunately I couldn't treat my baby with anything special then. Guess, there is no better day than this to show my love to this humble blog of mine which opened my eyes to a whole new world of culinary delights. It gave me new friends with similar love and helped me gain more insight into my big time passion ,baking!!!
I learned lots of new techniques, skills and the courage to try out recipes which maybe I would have never done otherwise.

Pasta made Indian :)

Recipe:Pasta with Curried Minced Meat

There are certain dishes that we get no where else but home...... Simply because they are one-of-the kind Creations by your mom. I believe, the dish I present here is one such. I am not sure if anything similar is available else where but this, very Indian pasta, I have eaten only from my mom's hand and now from mine, when I try to replicate her :)

Those Brown Wonders.....Guilt Free!!!

Recipe: Low-Fat Brownies
We are a family of chocolate lovers, my daughter, following right behind... My hubby and of course me!!
Anything with a cocoa ingredient never last longer than a day or 2 at my home.Very obviously, the first cake I baked was chocolate, the first cookie was Choco chip ...and the list goes on..
So, now I don't think I really have to talk much about our love for brownies. They are one of the easiest and according to me, the best solutions for a sudden and acute chocolate craving.


So little ingredients, so little effort , and yet a very exquisite and perfectly chocolatey output.

Our Very Own Desi Cookies

Recipe: Naankhatai (Cardamom flavoured Indian Cookies)

It is really amusing to see how your child can be quite similar to you in some aspect and at the same time a complete contrast to what you are in most ways. I couldn't help beaming with pride when I discovered how much me my 4 year old daughter is with her keen interest in cooking.
