Part of the Arabic mezze- Tabbouleh is usually served on the side in most eating joints, but in our kitchen it takes all the limelight as an exciting weeknight full meal by itself.  The recipe is a staple in my household and i say staple as we love making it almost 4-5 times in a month. Yeah we are the hard core herbivores, we love love the veges we eat :)

Served with a delish yogurt sauce, the salad will send your taste-buds on a roll.

Eggless Tiramisu

Tiramisu literally means 'pick me up' and you bet, it sure stands true to its name. The recipe has been on my cooking wishlist for a while. Our half a decade wedding anniversary and the very first with our little lady became the perfect occasion to indulge. Yes, I am a mommy now :) 

Well there is no particular reason to eat a dessert but this one has been coming to renew our vows of togetherness for the past four years consistently.. store bought, u got that right!  But this special year it had to be something all the more special, for the seven month old parents were themselves turning five :)

A very easy recipe with no baking involved at all. Its simply assembling and layering like how u do when making a trifle.

Baba Ganoush

I had been thinking to make the middle eastern baba ganoush for a while now. Tangy , healthy, refreshing and equally easy to make. The simplicity of the recipe will make you wonder why u bought the prepackaged or tinned version for so long.

A great appetizer to start a great party.

A month beginning with notes of celebration. Now be it Eid, Ganesh Chaturthi or the Labour day weekend that you may be enjoying with your family,here's a super simple recipe of the most delectable dessert that tops my list of the sinful ten.

Shrikhand is Indian sweetened saffron yogurt, eaten on its own or sometimes with puris /deep fried bread.Traditionally, curd or plain yogurt is hung in a cheese cloth for 7-8 hours or overnight and flavored the next day with some aromatics. Like a blank canvass, you can bring your own spin to this basic recipe that i present by adding cubed fruits or fruit pulp.

Rajasthani gatte

Lately, we have been marathoning flavors from home. Quintessentially rajasthani, gatte (pronounced ga-tte) are savory gramflour dumpling. A great dish to surprise your palette, if you have'nt tried it already. 

Rajasthani cuisine like many other cuisines, is truly influenced by the availability of ingredients locally. An arid land, vegetation in the region is scarce.In the era gone by, food mainly consisted of many variations of lentils and dried produce. The hot climate required eatables which could  last longer. Fast forwarding to the present times, this recipe comes handy when you find your refrigerator scarce by the end of the week :)
