Roasted Strawberries

I’m a self-confessed strawberry fan, and as much as I like fruits to be seasonal, there’s a secret part of me that wishes for strawberries to stay all year round! But then, look what happened to apples… they’re now available all year rou

Chocolate Rice Crispy Treats (made with Puffed Rice)

“Tcho-co-late!” I don’t think I’ll ever let my nephew, who is just two-and-a-half years old right now, forget that after learning to call out to his parents, it was chocolate that he learned to identify next. Of course, in a food-crazy household like ours, this is a welcome sign. The little darling

Apricot Tart (No-bake; made with a nut crust)

As much as I love a butter-y, flaky tart crust, there are times when I dial things down to make a version of tart where the crust is made of nuts, is sweetened with dates and the fruits shine with just a drizzle of maple syrup. I’ve used apricots here, but feel free to use peaches, nectarines, mangoes, plums or any stone fruit of your choice!

Guacamole

I like to describe my version of guacamole with mango and pomegranate seeds as a ‘tropical’ guacamole… one that isn’t sweet despite the addition of fruits. This is what easy summer cooking should be about, right?

It’s almost a relief to confess that you might only find one picture on Instagram of me eating frozen yogurt from Pinkberry, but in reality, I’ve just been hiding this weekly addict

Lemon-Herb Pearled Barley Risotto

Oops I did it again! You’ve seen me flout traditional risotto rules when I made Red Rice Risotto and now I’m at it… again! I’ve been experimenting with slightly healthy substitutes for Arborio rice while making risotto, mostly because r

Cucumber Cooler

I’m a bit of a late bloomer on Instagram, using it actively only for a year now (@tarikasingh , say hi if you’re there too), but it’s grown to become a crazy addiction! I could be watching the most engrossing movie or lost in a conversation, BUT, I just need to constantly check-in to see what pictur

How to make Ricotta at home!

I love good cheese, but dishing out nearly Rs. 500 for Ricotta in these times of fluctuating, skyrocketing prices for basic veggies just seems to be burning a hole in my pocket! I’ll loosely borrow from Heston Blumenthal’s appearance on MasterChef Australia, when he said that we eat with our sense
