Gluten Free Quiche

Gluten Free Quiche

The past one year,I have been extremely inconsistent with my food choices.One quarter I couldn’t even smell food let alone eat it,the next quarter I over compensated by eating samosas everyday and the third quarter I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes so was on a strict diet.   There have been challenges after the delivery too but mostly in the form of lots of unsolicited advice! From the random person at the airport to the garbage lady , everybody has something to say about what I should and shouldn’t eat!   I had to list down some of them! I should not drink more than 3 glasses of water for first three 3 months! I should have water with vinegar mixed …

Chocolate & Banana Bread Pudding

Chocolate and Banana Bread Pudding

This recipe was more of an aberration, a departure from my usual norm on several levels.It’s a mix of french toast and a bread pudding.I usually prefer the Indian version of savory french toast with a generous sprinkling of  chat masala.This dish was born out of a necessity to use my over ripe bananas and few days old bread.And I am so happy that I made it! It’s a simple dish which has layers of flavors and textures.You can replace chocolate chips with chocolate chunks or strawberries or mangos. You can serve it as a dessert at your dinner party or a great breakfast dish for the family. I ate this as a snack cause I was craving chocolate and sugar.I usually …

My Smoothie Bowl

Vegan Smoothie bowl

It’s weird having so much sugar after the whole 30 regime early in the morning.It’s almost like I am rebelling against it.I know most of you want to punch my face and say rebelling is if you eat a full batch of brownie! I unofficially not on paper agree..:D So other than avocado rose smoothie bowls are the new instagram fad.More exotic the fruit more like you get.Though its amazingly tasty and fulfilling its crazy high on natural sugar so I won’t suggest people on diabetes watch to eat this.But if you are eating pancakes or chole batoore or cheese sandwich everyday then this is a healthier indulgence! Its almost a smoothie but a little thicker and in a bowl …

Egg Baked in Portobello Mushroom

Egg Baked in Portobello Mushroom

When you find an oversized Portobello mushroom it deserves to be baked with an egg inside.Do not overcomplicate the flavours with indian spices or Cajun mixes. Keep it as simple as possible! My egg obsession continued after my breakfast number one with breakfast Two. Same passenger different vehicle! My egg discovery has led me to understand that there is very little egg doesn’t work with! The only complication in this dish is that you need to own a oven.If that’s ticked off then the dish in itself is so simple that a five-year old could make it! Its simple—Break egg in mushroom–>Bake Mushroom! For all its simplicity the flavours are very different from the Egg Avocado Tower I ate before this.At the time of baking the …

Egg Avocado Breakfast Tower

Egg Avocado Tower

You are consciously not aware of it but your mind has associated smells with certain events and locations.Its deeply entrenched in your memories.Today morning when I was making my coffee(thankyou Arvind Shanker!) I was almost instantly transported back to this small library in R A Puram,Chennai which used to be my frequent haunt in 10 th std. I used to borrow and eat 5 books a week and that’s when my school was crazy strict and gave not buckets but tub full of homework! There was a coffee beans grinding shop right next to it and even before I really started appreciating coffee this smell was a part of my history with Chennai. Old romance novels and coffee smell is …
