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!

Chatpata Paneer

Paneer is one of those things which taste pretty good raw as well – just slice some and eat. It is ,after all, cottage ‘cheese’ 🙂

One of those times of nibbling on paneer, while it was being prepped for a meal, I added a little masala to it to boost the flavour. Was so yum! That made me think that this could be made even better with a little pan time. A little crispiness maybe? The chatpata paneer was thus born 🙂

Pepper Chicken

One of my go-to proteins is chicken. Super easy to cook, extremely versatile in terms of flavour and comes together pretty fast. Great for weekday dinners! I love experimenting with chicken and trying flavours from different cuisines. Not only does this give us variety for our meals, but also helps me learn and love many more styles of cooking. This recipe is adapted from some of Malayali food I’ve had over the years (aka food from Kerala or Mallu food :)). Mallu food is super delicious, peppery, punchy and downright awesome! I make it a point to try as many restaurants and recipes of this cuisine as I can. This pepper chicken is an attempt to bring some of that awesomeness into my kitchen.
