Honey and soy are a great combination – the umaminess balances the sweetness and to me, is a signature flavour from Chinese cuisine. I used that as a base to make this baked chicken dish, inspired by several such chicken dishes I’ve had over the years.Continue reading “Baked Honey-Soy Chicken”
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 😍
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!
Being from Delhi, I have grown up around my fair share of Punjabis. And one of the biggest perks of that has got to be the amaaazing food I got to eat! Whether it was birthdays, random get togethers, sleepovers, quick catch-ups : there has always been great food on hand! Always!
A staple at special events is usually a nice, thick chicken curry. Perfect to be mopped up with naan and then to be licked off the fingers 🙂 I have tried to recreate that feeling with this recipe. It is definitely yums in the tums and very reminiscent of Delhi ❤️
Do you tend to associate places with food? I always do! Whether it is a dish the place is famous for or something I discovered for the first time while traveling or something I ate during a memorable trip – all of these give me great food memories.
Goa, for me, will always be associated with butter garlic prawns. Yes there is tons of other delicious food in Goa (like the prawn curry, recheado etc) but I was first introduced to the wonder of butter and garlic together in Goa. So it will always be special 🙂
