To Roast Or Not To Roast

Recipe: Pepper Roasted Chicken

Even though Indian cuisine boasts of a wide variety of thick luscious curries and spicy gravies, when it comes to chicken I have a liking for having it roasted/grilled. I simply cannot resist the wonderful aroma of roast chicken.




It had been cold and cloudy since the past couple of weeks in Bangalore. And I was craving for something with a zing to it...

Fruity Endings

Recipe: Banana Mango Tango

The best thing to do after a meal of kerala delicacies (apart from licking your fingers clean) is to mash a banana in your plate (the very same plate from which you just had your food), top it up with some fresh home-made curd and a sprinkling of sugar or a dash of gooey jaggery syrup, mix it up and slurp it down :)

That is my favourite ending to a "naadan" meal. The below dessert is a twist to that old classic :)

I'm sure there will be many such interesting closures to a meal. What are your favourite ones?

Red Meat with Red Chillies

Recipe: Beef Roasted with Red Chilli Flakes

Even though red meat has been getting a lot of bad publicity these days, I just cannot stop eating it completely. I need to get my dose of red meat at least once in 2-3 months. Besides, red meat is rich in iron. Eating it in moderation should be fine.

So here's what I made :)

 

Actually I made it sometime back and got time to write the post only last weekend.

A Time of Bliss

When it's finally that time of your life....
A time to be thankful for everything that has happened so far...
A time to show people how special they are ...
And a time to enjoy the sweet company of friends and family...
It's also a time you wished, you could stop time itself :)
Yes.. in such times, it's the perfect time to have a chocolate!!!
Make sure that it's one that you like best - be it dark chocolate or orange-flavoured or...

Convergence of Cuisines

Recipe: Beef in Chilli Garlic Sauce

The world seems to be converging, don't you think? There are people travelling to different lands and building homes there, different cultures inter-mingling and so on.

Man being the inquisitive creature that he is, has always been travelling and exploring new lands throughout history. Though in recent times, due to advances in aviation technology, travelling is much easier and more affordable.

Then again, who says that you have to travel to see the world. The power of the internet makes information about any place or anything available at our fingertips!

Amidst all this, there are different cuisines merging as people learn to adapt to different tastes and also as they try to adapt new tastes to their styles. The resulting convergent cuisine abounds in the best traits and tastes of multiple cuisines.
