Sometimes, fruit prices become cheaper than usual. If my husband visits the shop on those days, he will buy almost all that he can carry back home. Then I will have no space for keeping other things in the fridge for the next few days. I always feel that apples are his weakness. Because, everyday he buys apples and never… Read more →

Soy Chunks / Soy Mealmaker Dry Roast!
These were introduced to me by my friend during a college lunch time. This friend of mine was totally against eating meat and especially beef. When I brought chicken or fish dishes for lunch, they always vanished in no time. But if it was beef, atleast she would never take her share. But one day when she opened the lunch… Read more →
Simple Potato Curry!
Saturdays and sundays were often spent at my ammumma’s house during our school days. She was an expert in making potato curry to eat with puttu, idlis or dosas. The curry ammumma made was something special. Adding coconut milk to the gravies was like her passion and she would use minimum seven or eight coconuts a week where my Amma… Read more →
Flavourful Samosa !
During our childhood, waiting for amma to come back from office was really fun. The moment we hear the sound of amma’s scooter at the starting of our lane, we would be flying to the gate to welcome her in. My brother would climb on the gate and I would swing it open and amma drives the scooter in to… Read more →

Mathanga / Pumpkin Pulissery!
We buy Mathanga / pumpkin every week for making erissery. My man doesn’t like to see the yellow pumpkin chunks in the erissery and so I have to smash them along with the coconut gravy to make him eat that with rice. So, I deliberately make pumpkin dishes like mathanga upperi and mathanga pulissery for little Jebu and make her… Read more →
Paneer is my all time favourite. I add it to almost all possible vegetarian gravies. There is a short story behind this dish. One evening I made rotis for dinner. I was confused about making what curry to serve with the rotis. It is my (bad) habit to call him for unnecessary things everytime while he is in office. And… Read more →
Easy Ulli Vada / Onion pakoras!
Some times, in the evening around 4 o’ clock when I go to the kitchen to make tea, I sense wonderful aroma of fried snacks coming in through my kitchen window. Undoubtedly, it is from the kitchen of the apartment downstairs. Because, when they cook something great,the aroma flows into my kitchen with the wind. I assume, there is a… Read more →
Homemade Garlic Butter Naan!
When you stay away from your homeland, two things can definitely take your patriotism a level up. Our national anthem and Authentic Indian food. Few weeks before, we went out for dinner with one of our friends at an Indian restaurant. It was a very long queue at the counter and we waited for long. They had an open kitchen… Read more →
Easy Koorkka Upperi!
Koorkka upperi is something I like to eat as such it is. When I was a kid, I have seen ammoomma clean the koorkkas soaked for a while in water by tying them in a damp cloth an beating them hard on the washing stone. When we shifted to kochin, we didn’t have the comfort of a washing stone in… Read more →
