Mango Mania

Recipe: Mango Frozen Yoghurt / Mango Froyo

What is the best thing about a ripe mango?

Its sweet and fruity flavour?

The wonderful fragrance?

Or the juicy flesh?

Flavour Packed Awesomeness

Recipe: Tandoori Chicken with Olive Oil

Whoever said "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach" wasn't talking about my husband :) J is a person who eats just enough to get by - so unlike me, who dreams about chocolate, roast chicken and cheese-dripping Pizza slices all the time.

Probably that is why J is still the same weight as he was on his wedding day whereas I have gained many  kilos and changed many sizes :P (though I will continue attributing weight gain to the rigours of a woman's life especially pregnancy :) )

There is just one dish in the whole wide world that J loves to indulge in - Tandoori chicken!!! So I learnt to make this dish early on in our marriage :) by buying some tandoori masala (Though I forget which brand it was) and following the recipe on the back of the pack :) The tandoori chicken made using that recipe was so simple and yet so amazing. And so I stuck to it all these years. But I guess it's pretty much a standard recipe.

Ice Cream Specials

Recipe: Ice Cream Cake

There is something about an ice cream cake that makes it extra special (more than just the usual scoops of ice cream or a normal cake).

I remember that as children, we used to love having an ice cream cake for celebrations. But they were always pretty expensive to buy - even the simplest ones. After much coaxing and drooling when we finally manage to convince our parents to buy one, the entire thing would be devoured in seconds :)

Butterscotch and Pecan

Recipe: Butterscotch Pecan Ice Cream

When my good friend V (she blogs at The V kitchen..) sent me pecans from US last month, I was overjoyed. This nut tastes and looks a little like the walnut. But it does not have that woody taste that walnut has. This is also lighter and crisper than a walnut (and thankfully unlike the walnut, a pecan does not look like a mini version of the human brain)
