Prawn Sukka

It’s amazing how the cuisine changes from city to city in India. Having spent most of my life in Delhi, I didn’t know a lot about South Indian food, like I’ve told you before. When I moved to Hyderabad, Bombay and now Bangalore, I’ve had the opportunity to try so much new food and learn so many new styles of cooking. Mangalorean food is one such cuisine that I’ve grown to love and am always on the lookout for new things to try or opportunities to try my favourites, like this prawn sukka 😍

Spiced Plum Crumble

I’ve grown up watching a lot of international cooking shows and reading books by Enid Blyton which were massively focussed on food (those picnics, dinners and delicious sounding puddings!). While I didn’t get to eat a lot of those dishes at home, I pounced on the chance to try them as I grew older, either from upcoming bakeries or while traveling.

Watermelon & Feta Salad

I love a good salad – fresh, textural and delicious. Not to mention, usually light and healthy too. Now there are salads that make you feel like you’ve eaten nothing at all and then there are those that are a good meal by themselves without being unhealthy. Salads are so versatile and give us so much room to experiment. One such early discovery was this one : Watermelon & feta salad. This was my first exposure to fruit and cheese together in a salad. I was hooked!

Pan Seared Chicken with Mushrooms

As someone with a rather hectic work life, it is super important for me to be able to get a meal ready quickly and easily. If it’s a healthy meal, even better! I’ve found that chicken breast lends itself beautifully to such creations. Cooks quick, doesn’t require too much fussing over and works with a variety of other ingredients. This is one such combo : chicken and mushrooms. Super easy to make and yummmmy!
