    Mombasa style Ramadhan food A couple of weeks ago I received an email from Humi requesting to write a recipe as a guest on her blog. She is hosting an event, Ramadhan – an event to share. Obviously the first thing I did was check out her blog and instantly liked it. Loved the name, Gheza-e-shiriin, meaning sweet food. As I mentioned in my previous recipe, blogging has introduced me to more people with a common passion and that is cooking. Humi’s blog has recipes influenced by many places…. Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Dubai. What an exciting combination. I love the pictures. So I will be keeping an eye on her blog for more exciting recipes. Getting back to the invitation, I must say I…

  • 97. upma

    June 20, 2012mayurisjikoni

    healthy and nutritious    Upma is a south indian dish usually served as breakfast. Its made from semolina. Non south Indians serve upma anytime, be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. I usually make it either for brunch, as a snack or as a light meal. I prefer to use the coarse semolina as the fine one makes it into one gooey mass. In south India special semolina is available for upma. Its coarse and light brown in colour. Most places serve upma with just a few vegetables that you can actually count or none at all. I prefer to add more vegetables and for a bit of sour taste I add sour yogurt. Very healthy and a satisfying dish.  updated 19/02/2016…

    May 12, 2012mayurisjikoni

    potatoes are kaka’s favourite    My kaka (uncle) loves potatoes, be it in the form of shaak, baked, fried, or as aloo parathas or bateta vada. As long as potatoes are the main ingredient. I don’t blame him. Potato is such a versatile vegetable that many dishes can be created from it. I know most of you know how to make aloo parathas or potato stuffed parathas. However, have you ever noticed how you either get left with some stuffing or the dough? After so many years of cooking experience, I still get left with a tablespoon or so of either. It sits in the fridge till one day it says hello to the dustbin. Not any more because I actually measured out all the…

    a spicy brunch treat Special Theme: Redo Old Posts BM#78 Week 4 Day 3     Go to any typical Gujarati family for breakfast on weekends and masala puri or tikhi puri with sugary masala tea will surely be served to you. The younger Gujaratis usually do not make them that often as they prefer to shy away from fried stuff, but they do relish them when someone else has made them. My Dad’s favourite…. anytime can be tikhi puri time. If bhabhi makes dosas for the rest of the family, my dad is happy with tikhi puri and a mug of tea. There are 2 versions of the tikhi puri you can make, the soft type or the slightly crunchy type. The soft type is…
