Chillis and peppers

The second recipe on the table, after the chocolate cake of last week. Which is saying something, considering it has been about 6 months since I logged in to this site. Jamie Oliver..though I find him and his ever-so-cavalier shows..starts up an itch to try fresh fresh fresh ingredients. So finding these super sized chillis […]

Hand grenades (cheese, onion bread roll)

Once in a while, the deep-fry syndrome hits. And no matter what you do, your feet are dragged to the cabinet with the kadai and your hands irrevocably reach for the oil can. Well, what I do is give up and quietly get some lip-smacking ingredients ready for a tum-smacking snack. So this time when […]

Snack in a box, black chickpeas

This should actually be called lunch in a box, but the ‘siab’ phrase is growing on me :). I’d pack just rice and a salad, or just rotis and a salad all these days for Sid’s lunch..without ever thinking a wee bit out of the box (!). But ever since the 3-compart’mentor’ entered the kitchen […]

Grilled potatoes

I’ve never tried marinating and grilling. You know, one of those things you feel you’ll never get right. Even after years of getting an oven and grill. But enough drooling over the kababs in restaurants I told myself. Get going already! So these were a first attempt and they’re just marinated and grilled potatoes and […]

Andy’s cutlets

Here’s that great cutlets recipe from Andy! “When I was in school, we had this whole system of a tuck shop every once in a while where the school made us kids bring food from home and sell it in school and give the proceeds to them.  What a racket I say! But we used […]

Corn and cheese canapes
