Grilled potatoes, again

OK, I made these grilled potatoes again, and this time not only left the skin on most of them for extra texture and taste but got a better picture. Ha! Though I poked plenty of holes in the potato for the marinade to soak in, it wasn’t enough. So I suggest that if you’re leaving […]

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.

Snack in a box, potato wedges

potato wedges

Kids loooooove potatoes, mostly! Sid does and he loves baked potato wedges.

Desi Nachos

If you balk at shelling out Rs.250 to 300 on a standard pack of nacho chips just because they’ve flown in from far shores, this is just the nacho salad for you. I’d been to my niece’s for dinner last night and she showed me this fantastic recipe! It’s a great variant of the Mexican […]
