There’s nothing more satisfying than wiping your plate clean off of Goan chouriço fry with a piece of pão. The dish was tailor made for that particularly slow Sunday afternoon when you’re feeling indolent, and only have the energy to stuff your mouth with all that spicy porky goodness.
A glass of cold mango lassi or mango smoothie quenches like no other during those endless sultry hours. So tropical, so summery. And goooood! Like the way Bruce (Jim Carey) says it in Bruce Almighty. You’ll only need 5 ingredients, a blender and a glass or two.
Oh yes, you read right. There does exist a quick and easy chicken recipe. And you’ll find it right here, folks! This family favourite is mildly spiced, and doesn’t cut back on the flavour. The fragrant roasted coconut, cloves, cinnamon and fennel seeds make it heady!
The days are rough. The nights, rougher. That is why an instant spill-proof breakfast is a necessity — with the freedom to eat it without spilling when on your way to work or once you reach work. And the grainy, nutty, full-of-protein banana oatmeal almond smoothie is a godsend!
I’ve been searching for a cracking one pot chicken and rice dish, and I’ve found it in the chicken green pulao. The spices and herbs are balanced perfectly with the coconutty flavour, and the rich aroma tantalises you so — making it quite the drool-worthy dish.
I like how a cocktail takes you on a nice little private vacation — sometimes two or three places depending on the mix of liquors — and how I can close my eyes and relive the place. The Cabo Colada is so tropical and, so… balmily Goa! I’m taken back there in an instant.
I’m positively parched. It’s uncanny, this heat. No amount of water seems to do any good. Lassi anyone? Not just any lassi: coconut lime lassi. Coconut milk marries yogurt in the most romantic way resulting in a silky smooth texture; the lime adds heaps of flavour and freshness.
The heat is on, on the street, inside you head, on every beat. And the beat’s so loud, deep inside, the pressure’s high, just to stay alive. ’Cause the heat is on! Both the song and the chicken pepper fry gets me all pumped — bring it on, life — it’s definitely a feel-good dish.
The apple ring cake or the apple ciambella gives you that much needed hug — it envelopes your senses with all that apple goodness, holds you tight with its fresh flavour and lush aroma, lifts you and promises to not let go. It’s Italian, you see. Bene, no?
This aromatic and sumptuous simple crab curry is rich in flavour yet light on your palette, without taking away from the sweetness of the meat, and makes for a great accompaniment to rice or chapattis. The many ingredients, are designed to complement the crab.
These deliciously healthy oatmeal raisin cookies, otherwise my go-to rise-and-shine-breakfast cookies, are the best. They put a smile on my face, fill my senses with warmth, fill my tummy with the goodness of oats and raisins, and give me the strength to carry on with my day.
Sometimes a salad, sometimes a dip and sometimes a side dish, curd pachadi or yogurt pachadi pairs really well with biryani and pulao. It’s made with fresh vegetables and curds, resulting in a refreshing light and crunchy salad. It cools your body, and eases the main dish into your body.
Made with just 7 ingredients, this simple tomato chutney is the perfect accompaniment to dosas and idlis, and makes for a tasty base for tomato rice. Quick, simple, nutritious, and equal parts sour and spicy. It’s sort of like pickle (Indian pickle), you know. Yummm!
