{5 Minutes Snack} Spiced Paneer

Spiced Paneer 1

My 7 years old boy Yaseen just loves tofu and paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese). When we go grocery shopping at a supermarket, he usually runs to the cold storage section and grabs a few blocks of tofu or paneer by himself. He is very particular about how he wants them to be cooked. For tofu,

Crispy Deep Fried Oyster Mushroom

Deep Fried Oyster Mushroom 4

When we went to Thailand last June, my cousin got us deep fried mushrooms. At first, I seriously didn’t know what it was. All I knew was it was something meaty and crispy. Two massive bags of the crispiness later, I found out that it was mushrooms. I couldn’t believe it. I wouldn’t have guessed

Easy Chicken Strips 1

It’s 2 pm on Sunday, and I feel like the morning hasn’t left yet. The weather is so dreamy, frail and chilly. We can be lazy today. Yaseen doesn’t have any school work, Sadik is out with friends, and my mom and I has been hanging out in the soft sun on our balcony. Breakfast

Sweet Sesame Chicken Wings

Sweet Sesame Chicken Wings 1

I love chicken wings. It’s the ultimate party food of all time. My favorite chicken wing is the BBQ ones, but this Asian twist will do, when I run out of BBQ sauce. I love the nutty flavor of toasted sesame seeds. It gives that crunch to the soft and juicy wings. It’s super easy to

Usually I don’t like to take the picture of the food we made for dinner to post in our blog, because the pictures came out very horrible in low light shooting. But this calamari tempura I cooked last night was so good, I had to take the pictures of it so I could share this

Thai Shrimp Cake

Thai Shrimp Cake 3

Thai cooking is one of the easiest cooking in the world. I’m not saying this because I’m from Thailand, but the fact is Thai cooking is quick and fuss-free when you understand the ingredients. We don’t usually spend an hour or two to make one dish. In most typical Thai cooking, we barely take 30

Spicy Thai Fruit Salad

Spicy Thai fruit salad 1

When you think of fruit salad, what’s in your imagination? Some juicy slices of freshness in colors, topped with some whip cream. Maybe ice-cream. Some of you might prefer warm custard or a hot drizzle of chocolate lava. What if I tell you that there is another way to spin it? A spicy way. We can

Spicy and Aromatic Fried Chicken

I used to be one of those people who tried to figure out KFC recipe. I tried everything, but it had never succeeded. I come to understand now that KFC is something that meant to be bought and enjoy outside my kitchen. Now, other kind of fried chicken, on the other hand, different from KFC,

Sweet Corn Mayo Sandwich

It’s very difficult to feed a vegetarian menu to my family these days. If there’s no piece of meat, it doesn’t feel like a meal. Though many great protein sources can be harvested from vegetarian ingredients, we love meat so much that it’s nearly impossible to make anything without meat. A few years ago while traveling

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
