Chicken Soup for Weary

This was the long weekend I was waiting for months, needless to say flu took over all the plans and excitement.I am hating how frequently I am getting sick these days. It’s awful and even more awful is that I passed it on to husband as well. He had very high fever yesterday and was in bed the whole day with almost no appetite. So I had to make something appetizing which he can’t say no to and which is also good for us sick people. What better than a comforting warm bowl of chicken soup when you are down with flu and cold. The soup itself can make you feel better. Continue reading →

Tandoori-chicken-Cover

An Indian cuisine lover and not a fan of Tandoori chicken. Just not possible. It’s a must have starter dish.

It is also very easy to make at home time is all you need. Marinate chicken for 8-10 hours and just throw it in the oven and it is done.
