Almond Biscotti

Almond BiscottiI love evenings. I long for a quiet cup of tea more than anything to phase off the noise of the road, office still ringing in my head. It has become an expression more than anything to calm down frustrations accumulated through out the day. I close my eyes, cup in my hand and I can feel the stillness and noiselessness of deep ocean, I glide so fluidly, my senses sharpened and angers dulled. That is the state I long for.  Continue reading →

French Toast

French ToastDiwali is gone and so are most of the festivals here in India. We had way too much of poori, kachori type of stuff. As yum as all of this stuff is, this Sunday called for a break. What else is more soothing on a long due lazy Sunday than good old ‘French Toast’. For the days when all you want to do is ‘NOTHING’, french toasts are perfect breakfast/brunch in my opinion.  Continue reading →

Shakshuka: Eggs in spiced tomato sauce (a must try)

ShakshukaShakshuka, this name may sound unfamiliar to you but it is synonymous with breakfast in Israel and it totally deserves it. I believe this is the breakfast which can make your whole day work. It is a happy breakfast, which reminds you of a lazy day,a vacation and all good things. It is nothing but eggs cooked in mildly spiced tomato sauce and topped with some cheese may be. When i first read about it, it sounded so Indian and very much what i have been making all my life, presentation was little different may be, if only that matters.  Continue reading →

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! don’t we all know this, sigh! A good, healthy and balanced breakfast meal can charge you for the full day. But this is the meal when we all are in most hurry and out of ideas and so we just eat whatever we can grab, pick up the keys, lock the door and get out to fight the world. This is so not healthy and fair to our body and mind. A healthy and well fed you can be way more productive and happier than starting the day with some junk or just nothing. This is where egg recipes like egg roll, omelettes, boiled eggs(soft and hard) come in handy as they are easy to prepare and take little time.
