Whole Wheat Pizza with Vegetables

I love love love pizza! It’s one of those decadent dishes that instantly improves my mood. As a kid, I remember buying those white pizza bases from the neighborhood grocery store and cooking them on the tava with our favorite toppings. But I’ve been meaning to try making the base at home using whole wheat […]

Butter Chicken

Ok, so this isn’t a dish you should be making often. This is my first attempt at making Butter Chicken and it turned out pretty decent! While this isn’t something I order at a restaurant (because I prefer spicy food), I enjoyed trying my hand at it. This recipe is from my sister who in […]


Brownies are a favorite at my place. These brownies are the firm-kind, not gooey. I incorporated the recipe from Hersheys.

Roast Turkey with Homemade Gravy

Last Thanksgiving, my sister wanted to roast a turkey, something neither of us had done, ever. We took the plunge and it turned out to be so much fun! We followed Ina Garten’s recipe that you can find here and made a few changes as well. My sister did most of the dirty work, and […]

Guacamole/Avocado Dip/Butter Fruit Dip

My husband and I absolutely love guacamole. This creamy dip is super healthy (if you leave out the chips!) and is perfect for snacking. Avocados aren’t easily available in India except in some gourmet food stores. It’s known as Butter Fruit in India and in Coorg (Karnataka) is mixed with sugar and eaten like a […]

Egg Kurma

I had this dish on a Sunday morning. Piping hot, with dosas! It was delicious. A recipe from my sister-in-law’s family, egg kurma was a regular in her growing up days. It tastes best with dosai. The spice levels have been kept to a minimum but you could easily notch it up a bit. Ingredients: […]

Green Gram/Moong Bean Curry

This is yet another recipe from my sister. The only difference between her version and mine is that I make it like a curry while she makes it dry. I prefer it slightly watered down simply because I can have just a bowl of these lentils like soup for dinner. It’s hearty and healthy and […]
