    Marathon time! Its Monday and our 34th #Foodiemonday #bloghop theme is #NoCookNoBake. So many doors open up with this theme right from salads, smoothies, summer drinks to desserts. Anything to get away from my hot kitchen. Global warming is seriously affecting world climate and yet we humans seem to see no end to our wants and cravings. Where have the days gone when a family existed on one small fridge, one television, one phone, only fans. The more we want, the more materialistic things are created and produced.To meet the demand, more factories are constructed. This means greenery disappears. I think every country in the world should make it mandatory that every building that comes up should be surrounded with trees and greenery. The green…

  • Rice Vada

    The week passed by so fast, its already FoodieMonday Bloghop day. Our 33rd theme is #rice. When the theme was decided, I bought the ingredients to make a coconut rice pudding. But during the course of the week the rice was not used for the pudding but for vadas. When family visits, its food, food and more food. Its been really nice to have my dad, kaka, kaki and foi here. In between going out and having long chatting sessions, I try to cook something. I decided to make vadas as I wanted to make a quick but satisfying snack. Accompanied with a coconut chutney, this snack is perfect to take the edge off the nail biting  Twenty 20 cricket matches that are going on…

  • 545. Thandai Kulfi (Ice cream)

    March 14, 2016mayurisjikoni

    Bura na mano holi hai    Its a bit early to post Holi recipes but I’ve just join a new  group #Foodiemonday #bloghop. Every Monday we post a recipe based on the chosen theme. The 31st theme is #Fusionthandairecipes. Its really really hot in Mombasa and the only thing I could think of was something extra extra cold. I decided to make kulfi with my thandai masala. Taking photos was not easy as the kulfi was melting too fast. Holi, a festival of colors is celebrated by Hindus worldwide. In India its mainly celebrated by throwing, applying, drenching friends and families with different colour powders and coloured water. The true reason for celebrating is lost in all the colour throwing, drinking and partying. In reality,…
