Chili Paneer

My friend wanted me to post something vegetarian. So I kind of tweaked the chicken fry recipe and prepared Chili Paneer with almost same ingredients except those non-veg components. I had few guests last night, they said it was just too awesome. I was glad that the bowl was empty at the end of our dinner though …

Random Fish Curry/Mali Amti

Another random recipe from my experimental kitchen. I actually bought king fish for frying it but ended up making fish curry as I couldn’t cut the fish into thin slices.

Spicy Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Seven years ago I landed in this country without knowing what lied ahead of me. As a newly wed I only had fancy dreams and hopes that this country could offer. As the days passed dreams faded and the reality surfaced. Not knowing anyone other than my husband kind of haunted me. But the economy …

No Oil Mattar Paneer (Low fat)

I looked through the window, the weak street light tried to illuminate the driveway . The bare paranormal trees stood still awaiting some breeze to give them a new life.
