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…

Creamy Mushroom Pie

As an alternative to those delicious Beef Pot Pies, here are some creamy mushroom pies for this week’s Meatless Monday. I found a post by Wallflower Kitchen on Pinterest, however, the pie they made was vegan, the ingredients for which are not easily available in India. Plus veganism isn’t as big in India, so I think…

Tomato and Ricotta Tarts

Meatless Monday is back! And hopefully for good, though with my schedule I can’t promise anything. I’ve never been one of those people who likes savoury tarts, however considering this is my second post in the last 2 months, let’s just say I’m rethinking that one. The recipe I’ve used is one by Donal Skehan….

Savoury Pie

Over the summer I ordered a few Italian cookbooks, and have been obsessed with not only reading them but also trying out some recipes. One of the dishes that caught my eye almost immediately was this savoury pie or ‘Torta Rustica’. According to the book Tasting Rome, this pie is often seen on the menus…

Veggie Burger

What do vegetarians envision? I don’t actually know, but I’m guessing they salivate just as much as we do at the thought of a good burger. This…

Bread Pasta

I don’t know how many years ago this was, but I was watching one of Donna Hay’s cooking shows, and she made bread pasta. I know it sounds a little odd, but trust me it’s amazing. This isn’t the recipe I saw, its a version of it. I don’t remember the recipe at all, besides…

Potato Curry

This Monday I decided to go a little native, and do an Indian dish. This curry would technically be perfect for fish, however, it goes really really well with potato as well. For the curry:  Potatoes Coconut milk Onion Mustard seeds Chilli Turmeric powder Red chilli powder Corriander powder Garlic Start by cutting up the…

Eggplant Pizzas

I have been gone a while. A LONG WHILE. However, I am back. I’m planning to change things up a bit, and one of those changes is starting Meatless Monday. Every Monday I’ll be posting a vegetarian recipe. I’m not someone who particularly likes vegetarian food. In fact, I’m one of those people that mocks vegetarians….
