Blueberry Lime Bread

Lately, I have observed one thing about me that from just liking blueberries, I have become obsessed about them. Any time I open my fridge, I want them right in front of my eyes on the very top shelf. If I can’t see them there, I start worrying about what to put in pancakes, in smoothies, in breads, in muffins. Ohh myy… I have so fallen in love with that natural deep purplish color that I want it in all my recipes.

So I decided to dedicate one delicacy to this beauty and here is the recipe for it.

Mango Bread

It’s mid-summer and mango season is at its peak and so are the mango recipes and my experiments! While turning the pages of the book ‘Baking: From my home to yours’ by Dorie Greenspan, I found another easy and simple but excellent recipe.

Although it’s named Mango bread, its texture is more like a cake. But I guess, it does not matter as far as it satisfies our taste buds. Read More


Rice Semolina Pancake (रवळी)

I never liked this healthy dessert during my childhood when my grandma used to prepare it for us. But now far from home, when nobody is forcing me to eat those dishes I disliked, I am really not sure if I am reminded of my people forcing me to eat those dishes or those dishes that were forced on me by my people. I guess, I am missing them both, those dishes and my people.

This is a very simple dessert that can also be had as a snack. Read More



Savory Rice Balls

This name definitely won’t ring any bell in your mind, because this recipe is definitely unique and belongs to my Vadaval community. In our region some call it Mudaki, some call it Mutake, Some call it Muthe. In a nutshell, all these words mean one single thing and that is “a fist”. And the reason is its shape. Yes, no special cutter or any other equipment is required to prepare this. You just have to squeeze batter in your fist and it forms the required shape. Read More


Dried Shrimp Fritters (जवळ्याच्या भज्या)

Any seafood list is incomplete without prawns or shrimps in it. I can turn myself into a full time vegetarian but huhh…shrimp and crabs won’t allow me to do that.

Many parts of the world enjoy delicacies made up of dried seafood. And many don’t like it because of obvious reason, yeahh.. it is too smelly. But like I mentioned in my earlier blog, it is all about how you cook it. Read More


Cabbage Quiche (कोबीची पोतेंडी)

This recipe again belongs to my native place. But I was not sure about it’s preparation because cabbage is not something that everybody is fond of. I can’t say that this recipe is authentic, because at our local place we add Bombil (Bombay duck – fish) in it to make it more flavorful. Me and my husband who absolutely don’t like cabbage, don’t mind eating this delicacy as a snack at teatime. So I am sure all cabbage haters out there should give at least one try to this recipe.
