Stuffed Cream and Fenugreek Flatbread | भरवाँ मेथी मलाई पराठा | Step Wise

 

DSC_0235-001

Hi all!!

Fenugreek greens is a family favourite but unfortunately I get to see these greens rarely here. Last week when I visited my vegetable mart, I saw that fresh greens had just arrived and I was tempted to buy all the varieties. But knowing that the greens perish very fast, I controlled my temptations and narrowed my purchase to the fenugreek greens, coriander and mint.

When I returned home and asked S what he wants me to cook with the fenugreek, he gave me his favourite options of Methi Bhaath and Maatvadi Palya. Both I and the kid were in no mood to eat South Indian food, so I asked S to suggest more options, to which he replied conveniently ‘then you decide’. I was a bit annoyed initially that again I had to sit, then I thought of making mushroom methi matar but I didn’t want to go elaborate and make rice, daal, roti  too. I was about to give up and make a simple methi daal but then the grey cells decided to work …

Schezwan Sauce Flavoured Mini Bread Cigars | Indo-Chinese Preparation

 

DSC_7029.1

 

Hi All!

There’s no major recipe in today’s post but it’s a concept in itself which can generate many more ideas and hence the preparation left me content. The preparation was created completely out of an attempt to finish off a few things lying in the fridge. There were a few slices of bread left from the loaf I had made after baking the Komaj and there was half a bottle of readymade Shezwan sauce giving me constant stare every time I opened the fridge.

DSC_6681.1

Hi all!!

Given a choice, I prefer to have a light meal for dinner and a bowl of salad or soup is what I will always look forward to. Since I make them at night, I rarely get a chance to click them and post here. Realising that many of you would like to see more of such recipes, I decided to make small batch in the morning and click the pictures. So, henceforth I would consciously try to post more of such recipes here.

Event Round Up-‘Only’ Gluten Free Cooking & The Giveaway Winner

 

Hi all!

August started a week back and my blog just went silent. Must confess it was a very hectic week at my end. The 1st and 2nd were spent at Aloft Cessna Business Park, Bangalore where the first ever all India food bloggers meet was organised (#IFBM2014). It was one learning experience to be amidst so many talented bloggers of the country. During the two days long sessions we were exposed to various aspects of blogging and how we could improve on them a few were photography, food styling, food writing and SEO.

It was almost about 2 weeks after the launch of their 50th store in Chennai, that Star Bucks which is considered the most celebrated coffee brand in the world, had invited a few food bloggers & media  for a Coffee Tasting Session with India’s first Starbucks Coffee Master, Vibhor Mishra, at Phoenix Market City, Velachery.The Starbucks India is a 50-50 partner with Tata Beverages which is Tata & Sons company.

I had to make my way through a crowded Starbucks to reach a neatly laid out table at the far end of the cafe, for the coffee tasting session. The crowd looked excited and enthusiastic about being in Starbucks and made me realise that the Starbucks fever is catching up in Chennai.

Baked Savoury Gujiya With Corn Stuffing| भुट्टे के दानों की बेक्ड गुजिया

 

 DSC_0536 

Hi All!!

My city is turning hot and humid and my days are most busy with parents around, son’s upcoming exams and regular chores at home and amidst all this chaos I’m gearing up for the first ever IFBMeet at Bangalore. I’m both nervous and excited. There’s excitement to meet the faces behind the well known food blogs and to stay together with a few blogger friends but there’s equal amount of nervousness which I really can’t understand why, I would call it as the fear for the unknown..

The few of the sponsors of the IFBmeet have encouraged bloggers to participate in contests, challenging to cook and create recipes  based on a core ingredient. Freedom Tree has thrown a challenge to the participants of IFBMeet to bake a savoury dish  which has fresh corn as one of the main ingredient. They are giving out a bake ware hamper to a winner. Browsing through their site I realised, there’s so much I would like to pickup as I’m always on a look out for props..
