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…

Claw Cupcakes

Onto everyone’s favourite part of a meal, dessert! While red velvet is normally the favourite this time of the year, I decided to do something different with some simple chocolate cupcakes. If you want to make these cupcakes using red velvet, you can check out my recipe here. While they look complicated, these cupcakes are…

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….

Nicoise Toast

I’m currently going through a phase with canned tuna, so bear with me. I loooove a good Nicoise salad. The potato, the beans, the dressing, it’s just so good. So when I found a version of it that goes on toast, I was intrigued. The original recipe is from Epicurious and is very very similar…

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…

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…

Soba Noodles with Sesame Seeds

I apologize for the erratic posts, but I haven’t had wifi for the last two weeks, and now my photo editing software has given up on me as well. I’m currently just trying to edit using the inbuilt windows software and hotspot my phone as much as I can. Will try to go back to…

Homemade Ricotta

Good cheese is something that’s quite expensive in India. Which means we don’t buy a lot of it in the country, and rather wait to go abroad and then buy the cheeses we want. There are however some cheeses that can just be made at home. Ricotta is one of them. I was surprised to see…

Making Fresh Pasta

This post was meant to go up yesterday, but I got a bit lazy and put one meant for today instead. To start off italian week, I wanted to show you’ll how to make fresh pasta. I have a pasta machine and can therefore make different types of pasta, but if you don’t have one…
