Carrot Cake

One of the first non chocolate, non vanilla cakes I ever had was a carrot cake, many many years ago. I was, and continue to be, amazed at how a vegetable can be added to cake! And be so delicious!

It’s been a cake I try wherever I find it and something I have made many times over the past few years. So moist, not too sweet, crunchy with the walnuts and a little tangy with the frosting. Perfection!

Gochujang chicken wings

Korean food is like nothing else I have had. Delicious and rich in umami. Lots of greens, meat, rice, spices – there is so much to try and love. Beyond kimchi 🙂

It is still fairly new to India, has probably come to the fore in the last 5-6 years. Even then it is significantly under represented in terms of the number of restaurants it has.

I first had Korean food in Delhi and have since had it in Bangalore and London. Bangalore has some really authentic restaurants which also sell Korean food ingredients, which are hard to find otherwise.

I am always looking for recipes that I could make at home to add some variety to regular home cooking. These gochujang chicken wings from Richa’s blog seemed like a great way to bring a little korean love into our food. They are super easy to make and taste heavenly.

Red Wine Sangria

I love drinking wine. I started with red (unlike most people), moved to rosé and now drink mostly white. Given how much I love wine, it’s not surprising that my favourite cocktail is Sangria. Red, white, rosé doesn’t matter. Melon, apple, orange, basil…add whatever works. If it is made well and isn’t too sweet, I will drink it. Lots of it.

So makes sense that I started making Sangria at home 🙂 I first tried my hand at it around six years ago and there has been no looking back since.

Chocolate Ganache Tart

I love tarts! The crunchy base with the delicious filling (sweet or savoury) result in such a glorious texture and flavour party in your mouth. The best tarts are the ones where the flavours all work well together, the base isn’t soggy and in case of dessert, they aren’t too sweet.

Presenting to you this uber easy, delicious chocolate ganache tart! I am so happy with it that I have eaten way more than I should have. Totally worth it!

Peanut Chaat

Peanuts are the best bar food, don’t you think? Every bar/restaurant either gives you some for free with your beer or has some options for nibbles that you can order with your drinks. They are easy to snack on, packed with flavour and balance out all the drinking you’re doing (kinda :)). Salted, fried, spiced – they all taste great! My favourite are the ones that are boiled and then made into a chaat – best texture and flavour combo for peanuts!
