Coconut Cake with Banana Curd

Coconut Jaggery Cake with Banana Curd

I have been getting a lot of pats on my back along with some oh my god she is so jobless to and astonished and awestruck comments from people on the monthly cakes I have been making for baby Vansh’s milestones. A fair disclaimer here-These cakes are more for me than him cause he can’t really eat them.(Hence the extra 10 pounds that I have gained over and above my pregnancy weight! )He is more of a smoke screen here..giving me a reason to bake so many cakes cause otherwise it’s just me and my husband and our birthdays come only once a year.:D So coming to what I made this month for Vansh’s 7 month milestone.Firstly,I can’t believe he …

Hot Milk Cake with Saffron and Pistachios

Hot Milk Cake with saffron and Pistachios

Today I present to you the most beautiful & crumbly Cake with Saffron and Pistachios.This cake is an amalgamation of the Indian flavours with the classic butter cake.It reminds me of the badam milk I have had in old delhi which has very similar flavours – Saffron/Kesar, Almonds, Pistachios, Milk and Sugar.

Cold Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Cold Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce

Sometimes the simplest ingredients available in your pantry come together in the most bewildering taste.This is the case with peanut butter,sesame,soy and honey.They have extremely different flavor profiles but together they create a magic like no other. Add to this crunchy freshness of cucumber just rounds off the dish to give the dish multiple textural dimensions. These Soba noodles in peanut sauce with red pepper and english cucumber is everything you could want on a lazy day.The balance is such that every ingredient has something to offer.Every texture has something to say. The peanut sauce has an umami taste which complements the freshness of the other ingredients.It’s so good that i have already made these 4 times in the past …

Grilled Eggplant Salad

Grilled Eggplant Salad

If you have been following me on instagram you would know that I have started a new food regime. I am going to take this a week at a time by following the paleo diet during the weekdays and maybe go a little crazy during the weekends. It would be the best if I could do the proper whole30 like last year again but it will be impossible with a baby. I can’t be too rigid with my food choices at the moment because one, I am providing nourishment to another human being and two ,taking care of that human being doesn’t let me have a schedule.Oh and there is a three..On days when he is cranky i can’t even …
