    EVENT: MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON#92 THEME: A-Z  FLATBREADS AND MORE – INDIAN FLATBREADS What is Mega Blogging Marathon? Well, its a group of bloggers who get together to post a dish for 26 days according to the chosen theme. For more details check out the initiator Srivalli’s page here. For this theme we had a choice of 3: 1. A-Z Indian Flatbreads that are not made using batter e.g. like rotis 2. A-Z Indian Flatbreads using batters e.g. dosa 3. A-Z International Flatbreads. I decided to opt for option number 1. India has such a huge variety of flatbreads to offer that are made on the stove top, in the tandoor, in the oven, under the grill or fried. Its going to be a challenge to…

  • Misal Pav

    May 14, 2018mayurisjikoni

    Have you ever taken a shot of the food for blogging and forgotten to add one of the main ingredients? It happens to me often. Usually it may be a side dish or a condiment which is not such a big deal. However, when I was taking the shoots for misal pav I knew I was forgetting something. Just couldn’t remember, even when I checked the pictures (yes now have learnt to do that, at the beginning was not in the habit of checking them). Its only when we set down to enjoy the famous Maharashtrian Street food that I realized the pav was missing. I had guests so couldn’t go and do the whole set up again. I managed to take a photo of…

  • Tawa Pulao

    April 30, 2018mayurisjikoni

    I first came across the recipe for tawa pulao on Jolly’s blog. I made it the way she did and the family loved it. Last year when I was in Mumbai, we’d go for a walk on Juhu beach nearly everyday till I managed to trip on a brick buried in the sand and fractured my toe! Hubby doesn’t like to eat from the canteens at Chowpatty but I get so tempted with all the aromas and colors. Once, we stopped by to buy a bottle of water and saw how tawa pulao was made. Its one of the simplest recipes ever if you have leftover rice and some leftover pav bhaji masala. I love how they cook the pav bhaji on those gigantic tawas.…

    Our Prayers are with you Theme: Surfing Through The Caribbeans BM #81 -Day 1   When Srivalli the initiator of the Blogging Marathon Group had set the themes for #81, and she came up with the theme Surfing Through the Caribbeans, she never thought that a natural calamity would literally surf through the Caribbeans. Hurricanes Irma and Maria have caused catastrophic damages to some of the Caribbean islands. Hurricane Maria followed Irma within 2 weeks barely giving the inhabitants of these islands time to get back to normal. It will takes years for some of these islands to get back on their feet. However, our well wishes are with them as many come forward lending time and money to rebuild these beautiful islands.    For…

Last for this event, promise;) Well, has to be as we are nearly coming to the end of our Protein Rich Dishes for the Mega Blogging Marathon. The other group that I’m presenting this recipe to is Shhh Cooking Secretly, started by Priya of Priya’s Versatile Recipes. From the month of September, the group is traveling round India state wise. No we’re not on an actual journey (but that does sound good) but we’re going to cook from different States of India. The first one is Andhra Pradesh. When Shobha Keshwani suggested this theme I was really excited…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:10 When one talks about a vegetarian protein rich diet, they think that our meals maybe very boring with just dals, sabjis and rice or rotis. For this Mega Blogging Marathon, I’ve tried to showcase basic protein rich ingredients that can be made into some exciting, delicious, tasty meals. When one talks about tasty meals or dish, the first thing that I can think of is chaats. Yes Chaats. So, what are chaats? They are basically a mixture of basic ingredients made into a lip smacking, tasty dish with a melange of all tastes…sweet, sour, salty, chili and not so bitter. Right from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, ( no please don’t start singing the…

    Superlicious  Theme: Explore Latin American Cuisine BM #77 Week 2 Day 1 Its my first time to join the Blogging Marathon. I’ve known about this group for quite a while as I follow most of the members. However, all this time I did not join the group as I found that perhaps blogging 6 new recipes in a month on specific days is a big challenge. However, I’ve just taken the plunge and am going to try out the waters. So what is this group all about? Well, it was started by Srivalli who blogs at Cooking for all Seasons and at Spice your life. Members blog for any 2 weeks but for 3 consecutive days on chosen themes. For my first theme I chose…

    Election fever is on Once again disappeared for a whole week…. no blogging and friends were wondering if I had run out of recipes. Hardly the case. It’s just that I went to meet my son in Dubai and spent a whole week getting dazzled by the tall buildings, all the gold and diamonds and the endless number of restaurants. I got to taste bao (chinese steamed bun), nice soft and less salty halloumi cheese and goat cheese. I would have tried out a lot more variety of food but the serving portions are huge. Its amazing how you can find practically any sort of cuisine in Dubai. Dubai as a holiday destination is fine but I think to stay in connected with the rest…

    Street food from Mombasa  Some years ago kachri bateta was a very popular street food in Mombasa. These days we hardly see any of them around in town or at Lighthouse with their little glass covered cart. Now we find sausages and chips in these carts. Whenever we came to Mombasa for a holiday and stayed at Manju aunty’s house in Old Town, kachri bateta was our tea time treat. Back then we were served this on layers of old newspaper. Loved the tangy and crispy dish. The vendors made the potato curry  pretty dry. A few weeks back I read in Coastweek that kachri bateta was also sold outside Naaz Cinema for moviegoers to have as a snack. Nowadays no kachri bateta and even…
