The best Restaurant-style Chicken Manchurian with Gravy that you can make at home in under 30 minutes! There’s Chinese food, and then there’s Indian Chinese, agreed? Spicy, no added MSG, just loads of flavour that relies on ingredients that you probably already have at home – this Chicken Manchurian comes together in one pot and is my slightly healthier version.
Creamy, without any cream or roux! This recipe for Cream of Mushroom Soup makes use ingredients that you already have in your pantry and secret ingredient that makes it super healthy. Made extra simple in a pressure cooker!
￼ A one pot rice dish that is hearty, fragrant with spices full of vegetables – that’s Tehri or Taheri for you! My version is cooked in mustard oil which adds so much flavour; and a bunch of spices. This one pot rice dish hails from the Northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and what I love about it is how you can make it your own by using your favourite vegetables, or leftover veggies from your refrigerator!
￼ My spin on this classic Middle Eastern salad, is with Cauliflower grains instead of Bulgar or couscous. Cauliflower ‘rice’ has been a trending recipe on the internet for the last few years, with many even making cauliflower fried ‘rice’. This is an innovative cauliflower recipe, perfect if you’re on a paleo diet, vegetarian or vegan. My version uses cauliflower ‘florets’ or ‘grains’ in a manner that even veggie haters and picky eaters will be surprised with and love!
￼These really are the juiciest, most moist Chicken Satay skewers! The marinade is abundant with spices that give it a distinct Thai flavour. Paired with a unique cocktail created by the team at Johnnie Walker Red Label that has a jaggery & ginger syrup and kaffir lime leaves. This is what summer parties should be about, right? ￼
￼ Tzatziki is traditionally used as a sauce in Greek Cuisine, but I find that it makes for an awesome ‘dip’ too, especially for summer because it’s got cucumber that’s so cooling. It’s perhaps one of the easiest homemade / DIY recipes that’s super healthy too! Of course, the humble dill is the hero of this Tzatziki. Here, it’s paired with an awesome cocktail made with Johnnie Walker Red Label – The Red Fizz! These are the sort of recipes you want on hand to feed a crowd, but are really easy and effortless for entertaining at home.
￼ An easy Tomato & basil Bruschetta makes for a quick appetizer to feed a crowd. Perfect for the summer when you don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen! It’s paired here with a cocktail called Red Label Snapper – fresh take on a classic Bloody Mary- made with Johnnie Walker Red Label instead of vodka! ￼
To say it briefly, lately, my life has been a mess. Shifting homes is turning out to be way more chaotic than I had ever imagined. I guess, for people like me who work from home, the impact is a bit more because one ends up feeling uprooted on the work front too. So when the folks at PepperTap reach
I’m not shy of making risottos, but honestly, ever since I discovered ‘baked risottos’, you know the kind that you start on the flame and then shut-off in the oven for the next 40-or-so minutes, I’ve had zero inclination to make it any other way! When I’m cooking just for the 2 of us, it frees me
What makes a burger ‘Thai-Style’? Well it’s the use of herbs and spices that are the mainstay of Thai food! These Thai Style burgers are made with prawns, but you could use shrimps too. Shrimp and Prawn Burgers are a great alternative to Meat Burgers. Yay for seafood!
