Easy does Yum 3 – Instant Baked Potatos with Creamy Scrambled Eggs

I LOVE mashed potatoes but then who doesn’t? On the other hand, I have never been much impressed with baked potatoes..till recently when I had one at the Indigo Cafe in Andheri. Holy Moly… it was incredible. The sour cream dripping over the moist, fluffy potatoes were so good, they totally overshadowed the fabulous pulled pork burger which, by the way, is to die for in the first place. (So much so, that even as I type this, Atul who is peering over my shoulder, threatens to start a rival blog dedicated to his beloved burger) Read more

Easy does Yum 2 – Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal


Breakfast is my favourite meal to plan ahead and have great fun projects with. Waffles, eggs benedict, sweet breads – if you have time, inclination and inspiration, there is much you can do to prepare a fun breakfast.

Easy does Yum 1 – Watermelon, feta and mint salad.

I have this habit of being attracted to cooking PROJECTS. Sourdough breads which requires you to cultivate your own yeast and take care of the starter like a pet by ‘feeding’ it for a 14 day period before you can start the bread itself, my own mozzarella cheese from scratch, home-made pasta… As you can see, complicated techniques, unfamiliar instruments, serious research, study and careful planning before I cook have been the only rules I have followed in life.

Crazy for Bacon Chilli Caramel Popcorn

I don’t really know why but there seems to be something about boys and caramel pop-corn. Don’t get me wrong.. I know enough girls who like caramel popcorn but the boys I know are crazy about this stuff. Stark raving crazy. They will actually go watch a film JUST to eat the caramel popcorn. And actively check their mental rating sheet on which theatre serve the best stuff. And choose a film based on the theater that serves the corn they like. And this is film-makers I am talking about. Like I said. Craaazy. for caramel popcorn I mean. Ahem. Read more
