    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #248 LEMON LOVE For this week’s theme, I’ve made a Lavender and Lemon infused panna cotta with lemon curd. Lemons are bright yellow citrus fruits with an acidic juice. Lemons are an integral part of many dishes, from just a dash of the juice to including whole lemons. FoodieMonday/Bloghop Theme This week’s theme was suggested by Waagmi who blogs at Cooking is Funn. Her photography speaks volumes, making every dish appear delectable. She suggested we use Lemon to prepare our dish for this week’s theme. Most of us are still cooking with basic ingredients that are available in our pantries. Keeping lemon in mind I would love to try out Waagmi’s simple and yet tempting Eggless Lemon Cake. Lemons Since I was…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #231 CONDIMENTS MAGIC   What are Condiments? A condiment is a spice, sauce or any preparation of several ingredients that is generally served with a  dish to enhance or compliment the flavour of the dish or food preparation. For example different sauces or gravies are made to enhance the flavour of vegetables, meat, fish, pasta etc. When we make dips, dressings, chutneys, spice blends, they help to compliment a dish for example when we made podi masala to enjoy with rice, idlis, dosa etc. Condiments can also be simple ingredients like salt, pepper powder, chili powder etc.   FoodieMonday/Bloghop Group The reason my topic today is on condiments is because this week’s FoodieMonday Group theme is Creative Condiments.

  • Crunchy Winter Salad

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #228 WINTER DELIGHTS WINTER FOOD Depending in which part of the world you are, winter food can vary according to the climate. A little nip in the air and one can crave for warm salads, hot soups, stews, piping hot daals and rice, hot parathas for breakfast or even comforting drinks. I love countries where one can enjoy food according to the seasons. Mombasa, really doesn’t give us that opportunity as its always hot. While we are enjoying a bit of the cold weather in Bangalore, soups and hot meals dominate our table. However, one really shouldn’t neglect the fact that salads, during winter provides you with the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

  • Lemon Pickle

    May 20, 2019mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #196 IT’S PICKLE TIME My mum use to make huge quantities of lemon pickle and other pickles and store it in those old fashioned ceramic brown and cream jars. The pickle would be served every Sunday along with khichdi and kadhi. As for the lemon pickle which I love so much,she would leave the lemon pieces in a container, covered with muslin cloth for days in the sun till the lemon peel would become soft. I never learnt how to make the pickle from her. A few years back Vibha bhabhi made the pickle and shared the recipe with me. Tips like leaving the lemon pieces to marinate in the fridge was my kaki’s valuable tip. I have tasted lemon pickle that…

    EVENT: A- Z CHALLENGE THEME : A DISH BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER G What is the A- Z Challenge? Well, we’re a Facebook group and every alternate month the participants make a dish with the  relevant letter. The group was started in May 2018 by Jolly Makkar and Vidya Narayan. For the month of May (it’s already a year since the group began, time flies!) we have to post a recipe using an ingredient that begins with G. G is not a difficult letter as such as there are many food items that begin with G. I normally don’t drink fizzy drinks but when its real hot, ginger ale is what I love sipping on. With the scorching sun bearing down on us, the family was…

  • Detox Water – 7 varieties

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #170 DETOX RECIPE After all the Diwali fried snacks, sweets, desserts, heavy meals, its time to give the tummy a rest and give it a good detox. Just the right theme at the right time, well thought out by Kriti who blogs at  Krispy Kadhai. So what’s all this hype about detox water, detox soup, detox salad, detox meals, detox smoothies etc, etc. etc? Well, basically its more of a marketing tactic. None of them contain any magic formula or chemical to miraculously detox the body in a matter of 1 or 3 days. Our body is designed to detox regularly, meaning getting rid of toxins on a daily basis. For that to happen our liver and kidneys have to work perfectly.…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #165 NAVRATRI SPECIAL Navratri is just round the corner and many homes especially ladies are getting ready for the 9 days festival. For Gujaratis it means garba and dandhia. It’s also the time when many fast for the 9 days. Different people fast in different ways depending on their tradition, culture or area they come for. For most Gujaratis these 9 days of fasting means no grains or pulses are consumed along with many of the beans and other vegetables. The dishes one can prepare are exactly as the same as the ones we make for Ekadashi or Farali.  There are some who fast 9 days without taking any salt and only eat fruits, nuts and milk. I carried some buckwheat groat…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #162 LEMON AFFAIR The popular saying goes “When Life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Well this does not mean that in the literal sense. It’s believed that the phrase was coined by a writer Elbert Hubbard in 1915. The reference to the lemon is in regard to its sourness or difficulty in life and basically indicates to overcome it and get on with life, to have a hopeful and optimistic outlook towards life. When Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook suggested lemons as our #162nd theme she didn’t want use to make lemonade. She wanted us to put on our thinking caps and make something different using lemons. For me that’s not a problem at all as I love lemon, the fragrance…
