Curry puffs and sardines puffs are a big part of my childhood snack. My mother used to buy them from Polar Cake, along with chicken pies for our mid-afternoon after school snacks or sometimes we’d reheat them for breakfast. My cook extraordinaire friend S shared her recipe and I’ve made two batches of this since. […]

How is everyone doing with your new routine of “stay home”? I’m an introvert and I really like being on my own and spending time with myself, but I have to admit it really challenges one to think out of the box and you need to summon the discipline in every cell of your body […]

Last Summer, my friend C (cook and baker extraordinaire) came to visit and brought me pears from her in law’s garden in Belgium. Inspired by how she makes baking look so effortless, I decided to make good use of those delicious pears and bake a tart. I bought the pastry dough though and found this rustic […]

I love banana bread and have tried different recipes and variations but have to say this is my favourite. I have made a healthier version with coconut oil and gluten free flour (I am not intolerant but sensitive). I think the butter and flour type makes a big difference. Ingredients: 3-4 very ripe bananas, peeled 1/3 […]

I didn’t feel like having bacon in my scones and soaking in the animal fat, so I doubled the cheese in this earlier recipe. This yielded 25 scones that were moist and dense. It’s similar to a Bacon Cheddar Scones recipe I posted, with some modifications.   I am back practising how to take better photos […]

Baking is really not my forte because of my lack of precision and I have always relied on boxed brownie mix, before stumbling upon this adapted recipe and with trial and error from this success flourless chocolate cake recipe I’ve made several times. I started to bake a little more so I could have subjects […]

My friend @thebombayeastindiangirl_14 and cook extraordinaire says this is daily common food and they mill their own flour (wheat, chickpeas etc) at home to make this dish on a daily basis to accompany meals. She did it so quickly over the pan, I was busy taking notes and marvelling at her dexterity. This first cooking […]

I work from home and have alot more flexibility around my meals and prepping my meals. For the last four years, although I worked from home, the demands of back to back conference calls didn’t allow me to actually even have lunch or time to pee. Now that I’m back in the freelance work from […]

The butter chicken dish is one of the husband’s and my favourite dishes. I of course made the pilgrimage to Moti Mahal in New Dehli where it was created. And I was thrilled for @thebombayeastindiangirl_14 to teach me how to make the dish. The extensive range of spices is still daunting, but hopefully I get the […]

The privilege of having friends who are amazing cooks – is better than being married to a chef because chef hardly does the cooking at home! As Julia Child once said “People who love to eat (and cook) are always the best people.” Most of my tribe who loves to eat, also love to cook […]
