Party with the Kitchens of India

Party1

I consider myself an okay-good cook when it comes to Indian food. I love the aroma and the intense flavor of Indian dishes. It makes my house smell like a cozy restaurant. And a cozy restaurant is how I like it to be when I have a party at home. I want everyone to tuck

Puttu, South Indian Steamed Rice and Coconut Cake

Puttu 2

My mouth is all watery when I think about South Indian breakfast. Mmmm different types of soft Appams (soft pancake), hot Dosa (savory pancake), steamy Idli(rice cake), Poratha (Kerala flatbread) for a heavy weight type of breakfast, not to mention a spongy Puttu loaded with grated fresh coconut. Along with them, coconut chutney, Sambar (spicy

Vegetable Manchurian

If you ask me to order some vegetarian dishes in a restaurant here in India, my first pick would be Vegetable Manchurian. The name may sound very Chinese, but Vegetable Manchurian is actually an Indo-Chinese Cuisine, which is an Indian interpretation of Chinese food. Indo-Chinese is like a perfect marriage between Chinese cuisine and Indian

Chicken Malai Meatball

One of my favorite Indian dishes ever is Chicken Malai Kebab, which is fresh cream marinated chicken. It is milder than other type of kebab and loads with fresh flavor. Chicken Malai Kebab is not at all spicy, making it a kid friendly recipe. To make it even more kid friendly, I transform this juicy kebab

Palappam

I tried Palappam for the first time in a restaurant on the way to Munnar, a famous hill station in Kerala. Have you ever seen a dish you know it’s so delicious even before you taste it? That’s what my first experience with Palappam was like. Palappam is a slightly sweet rice pancake. Not as

Egg Curry with Deep Fried Flatbread

Egg curry is one of the easiest Indian recipes I can make. It’s wholesome and flavourful perfect for weekend brunch or afternoon comfort bite. The flavour is straight forward, spicy, tangy and very aromatic. The curry sauce is onion and tomato base. Now you can imagine the sweetness of onion mingle in the tangy intensity of

Tapioca with Fish Curry (Kappa and Meen Curry)

When my husband told me about using tapioca in savoury dishes I thought it was one of his silly jokes. I love tapioca but I have never tried it savoury. We use tapioca a lot in sweet dishes in Thailand. Tapioca in sugar syrup was simply comforting and delightful, and with the drizzle of thick

Goan Fried Fish

I have been to Goa once on a friend’s wedding. All I remembered about it was the sultry beaches with beautiful historical sightseeing. We were there for a day so we have missed the culinary adventure and night life on the beaches of Goa. I have been yearning to visit Goa for quite sometime, so

Spicy Yogurt Grilled Chicken

I love yogurt and often have it for breakfast, sometimes use it in dessert dishes. I have never tried anything savoury with yogurt until I’ve moved to India. People in India have such a variety of savoury dishes with yogurt. The yogurt base curry from South India was one of the soothing and comforting dishes

Wild Mango Yogurt Dessert

A few months ago, my husband asked me to post summer recipes featuring mango as the main ingredients in our blog but I was so caught up with other thing else, when I actually wanted to cook them, the beautiful mango was already vanished from the markets. When I saw some rare wild mangoes in the
