Potatoes & Bacon. Two delicious flavour packed essentials. Loved by most people. Right? When put together, the result is even more of a bomb!Continue reading “Rosemary & Bacon Potatoes”
Welcome to a slice of my childhood and to what is a quintessentially Bihari snack. Chura Matar (crispy flattened rice with sauteed peas) is one of the easiest, most delicious snacks you will ever try. Trust me.
I love fries! Crispy, delicious and happiness inducing! For me, fries were always made of potatoes, but over the past 10 years or so I’ve tried some others too. Sweet potato fries are the most common of these and I actually really like them despite being wary to begin with. Given the need to be healthy, I’ve also been experimenting with ways to bake things vs fry them. Fries are super easy to bake and are a nice alternative to the heavily fried stuff we end up eating so often.
Tomato Bruschetta is easily one of my favourite things to eat. I invariably order it every chance I get. Sometimes they aren’t really great, but I’ve definitely been lucky more often than not.
I first tried a bruschetta when I was in my teens, at a hotel buffet. I was wary, since I wasn’t a fan of raw tomatoes, but it looked so juicy and delicious that I had to try it. Boy, was I happy I did!
Growing up in Delhi, winter brought with it the famous shakarkandi (sweet potato) chaat. You would see people setting up their carts in markets, outside parks, near colleges all selling this lovely little snack.
This is my version of the classic. I’ve made it a wee bit more to suit my palate and so it’s not the simple childhood treat that you might remember.
