Cucumber and Squid Salad

If you go through my recipes from the last few months, you’ll notice that I seem to be spending a lot of time on Epicurious.  Yes, a lot of the ingredients on there, are not easily available, but that’s exactly why I play around with the recipe. The minute I saw this, I knew I…

Pancake Board

I know it’s not the weekend and you definitely don’t have time to put together something this elaborate, however, the weekend is near (well not really, but we can dream), so maybe you can plan to invite a few friends over this Sunday and have a beautiful breakfast. In honour of Pancake Day tomorrow, I…

Rava Ladoos

Happy Diwali!!! (Imagine me saying that in a super high pitched excited voice!) My family doesn’t really celebrate Diwali, however, I still love how the entire country is all hyped up and doing these elaborate preparations for the festival. While the clothes and house decorations are only one aspect, the food you get to eat…

Halloween Spaghetti

As I mentioned yesterday, over the next few days The Social Pill and I will be releasing some recipes, to get you guys in the spooky mood. Since yesterday’s recipe, the jalapeno poppers, was a sort of starter or appetizer, we thought why not do more of a main course today. And so, Halloween spaghetti…

Green Goddess Hummus with Homemade Lavash

So this is my last ‘healthy’ post as it were since this is the end of my collaboration with Pranita. In my opinion, we saved the best for the end. This recipe is super super easy, and unlike most other hummus recipes, doesn’t require tahini, making everyone’s life a lot easier. All the ingredients, except…

Dairy Free Vanilla Ice Cream

When I started brainstorming for this collaboration with Pranita, I found a lot of dairy-free ice cream recipes, and it had reached the point where I wasn’t unable to choose just one flavour myself. So I sent a list to Pranita, and she picked two. The chocolate one, and this vanilla one. We had initially…

Avocado Brownies

Let me be honest, I was sceptical. I’ve heard a lot of people talk about avocado brownies and say they taste great, like any regular brownie they’ve eaten, but I never believed them. So when Pranita gave me the task of being healthy and using almost no dairy, I realized the time I had come….

Green Goddess Quinoa Salad

In my second (you can check out the first here) collaboration with Pranita, I’m making a salad. Since the entire brief was about her wanting to lose weight, and be healthy while still eating delicious food, I decided to do a salad. So the concept of Green Goddess was developed wherein you use a bunch of…

Dairy Free Chocolate Ice Cream

If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know that Pranita Kocharekar and I are collaborating over the next month to bring to you a bunch of recipes that are all healthy and good for you. The recipes I create will be illustrated by the uber talented Pranita and are available as printables over…

Tuna Salad Sanwiches

I’d never particularly liked tuna salad sandwiches, until I went to the US 5 years ago. I was travelling unaccompanied, and so always had to make sure I had a stock of food, especially on the long haul flights. For one such flight, my aunt made me some tuna salad and gave me a couple…

Potato Rosti

When I was a kid, I had a party for my mother’s 40th birthday and as a ‘return gift’ she gave me “My First Recipe Book”. I followed a lot of the recipes from it, but the only one that well and truly stuck is ‘Potato Delight’. Over time I’ve tweaked it and played around…

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

So a couple of weeks ago, I met a friend who really wanted me to make a lemon meringue tart. However, considering the weather, a tart really isn’t smart. Instead, I decided to make some lemon meringue cupcakes. But that didn’t work out very well either. Bombay is a little too humid right now, which…
