    EVENT: RECIPE SWAP CHALLENGE THEME: RECIPE SWAP – 1 I’ve actually got a lot on my plate at the moment where blogging is concerned as I’m constantly busy with some group or the other. Initially I was two minded about joining this group simply because I thought I may not be able to cope. However, the main reason I joined is that I have bookmarked so many recipes from fellow bloggers that I rarely get the opportunity to go back to them and actually make it. However, this group gives me that opportunity. This is my first entry for the group and I was paired with Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook. Her blog is full of recipes both Indian and International Vegetarian Dishes.…

    EVENT: FOOD BLOGGERS RECIPE SWAP – No.4 Food Bloggers Recipe Swap is a group of food bloggers who prepare a dish from a blogger’s blog. The group initiator Amber pairs up the participants. We then decide what we want to make from our partner’s blog. Usually we add a slight twist of our own or cook it the way we like but the main ingredients remain the same.

    Delicious Dumplings    A visit to Phoenix Mall, Bangalore is like a dazzling visit to Fairyland. Only thing is that nothing is free, you need oodles of money to buy whatever you want. I remember when I was studying in India in the 70s, nothing much was available and relatives and friends would have a long list of things they’d want us to bring for them from Kenya. Tables have turned, everything is available in India right from Rin soap to Audis. For a girl who comes from the supposedly second biggest city in Kenya, the malls are like paradise for me. Visiting Foodland is a foodie’s dream but unfortunately everything from lettuce to wheat pasta is overpriced. Eating healthy is an expensive habit. Wonder…

    EVENT : BLOGGING MARATHON #88  THEME : REDO OLD POSTS -WEEK 4 DAY 2 Updated 25/05/2018 While I mainly wanted to update the photos only for this post, I must bring to your attention that I tried using soda bicarbonate instead of Eno as many followers complained that its not readily available in places they live. However, the brown specks kept on appearing. Finally found the solution, do not add turmeric powder if you’re using soda bicarbonate. A bit of chemistry lesson here. Turmeric contains curcumin. This chemical turns red when it reacts with bases and yellow when it reacts with acids. Soda bicarbonate or baking soda is a base. So when curcumin when it comes in contact with soda bicarbonate it turns red, thus the…
