Boiled egg bhurji

I need to clear first that this is just an experimental dish, which turned tasty accidentally. So can’t wait to share it with you. Egg is a kind of an ingredient with which, I guess no experiment will go flop. If you are making scrambled eggs but if you miss getting the consistency right, not to worry, just add onions and tomatoes to it and it becomes bhurji. If you are trying to boil an egg and if it breaks while putting in hot water, not to worry, it will become a poached egg. It’s kind of comfortable to work with eggs. Read More


Prawns and raw mango curry(आमखंडी)

Communities that are located at coastal regions, most of the time, are seafood fans by birth ;). So they have variety of recipes to cook seafood and satisfy their taste buds.

There are so many recipes on the internet with this combination of prawns and raw mango since it is being prepared in Goa as well as southern parts of India. I was born and brought up in a coastal region of India, in Palghar district to be specific. In our region too, this combination is very popular. But it was disheartening to see that it has not yet reached out to people. So, I thought why not start it from my blog?

Now you might be wondering, what this hush-hush is all about. Read More


Chole Puri

The very first thing that will strike you when you read the name of the dish is that this is not what you have always heard. It must have been Chole-Bhature. But no, I have not prepared bhaturas so it is Puri 🙂

It is not that I have prepared chole (Chickpeas) for the first time. I have prepared it several times in the past, but there was always one problem that bothered me. My spices and curry used to be awesome and chickpeas too were always cooked to perfection. Read More


Scrambled Egg Curry

First of all, Happy National Garlic Day to all 🙂

“You can never have enough garlic. With enough garlic, you can eat the New York Times.”

Haha… jokes apart, seriously garlic is the herb on which I count the most. If I am not using garlic in any recipe (except for dessert) then I feel less confident.

For convenience, many people make garlic paste in advance. But I feel it does not give that aroma of freshly chopped and sautéed garlic.

Today I decided to make egg curry for lunch. We had Shakshuka last week, so was definitely not going to repeat that. I generally don’t prefer egg curry with boiled eggs. So I decided to experiment curry with scrambled eggs. And it was super hit in my family. Scrambled eggs get evenly flavored by all the spices unlike boiled eggs. I really don’t think that in the near future I am going to make egg curry with boiled eggs after having this curry. Read More



Stuffed Eggplant Lasagna

A regular Saturday morning started with a normal healthy breakfast. After spending time doing some chores, it was a time to start preparing lunch. Nothing specific was on my mind and I opened the fridge to check what raw ingredients I had. Ahhhh…. was not so lucky today. Found only a big eggplant, one broccoli crown and few French beans!! I calculated some options in my mind like khichadi with either fried eggplant or roasted broccoli. Happily turned around with my quick decision making and suddenly my husband’s head popped out from the bedroom, “Let’s make something special” and…..baaaaammm!!!! I literally deleted that word “Let’s” from his statement and stamped my brain with the rest of it! “MAKE SOMETHING SPECIAL”. Read More
