Edamame and goat cheese toasties

I recently went to this salon de l’agriculture in Paris which hosts pretty much every single food from France. So, buying goat cheese was really really really exciting and given I have been experimenting with sourdough bread a lot these days, I ended up making a toastie. A toastie is basically a fabulous slice(or two) of…

Smokey honey-glazed Chicken Kebabs

With Christmas and New year parties in full swing, here is my contribution to party snack and appetizers! An oriental twist to the all-time favourite Chicken Kebab. These are so versatile that you can serve them wrapped in flatbread, with rice or just like that. I threw in a bit of veggie for that extra crunch…

A spicy Egg and Spinach Tacos

One fine evening I invited a few friends over for dinner. Nothing abnormal about that. Then I made a truckload of Taco Shells to serve some Prawns and Mango salsa tacos.

Anglo-Indian style Bread-Potato rolls

Growing up I had a lot of Anglo-Indian teachers in my school (The Oxford Dictionary, suggests Anglo-Indians being “Of mixed British and Indian parentage or of British descent or birth but living or having lived long in India”) and they used to make these bread and potato rolls every time we had a “fete” to raise…

Jewish style Potato Latkes

Hanukkah is far away so let’s do it for Rosh Hashana. Potato Latkes for all my Jewish friends! Also I cannot insist any stronger that Potato love is real love.   Also, that crunch when you take that first bite. OMG!
To keep it fashionably edible I served it with a side of Horseradish cream cheese.
