Puris and Masala Eggs

This is possibly one of my favourite breakfast dishes. One however, that I don’t get to eat often as it was always something that either my Mum, grandma or aunt made. It’s a typical Sunday morning breakfast eaten with all the family. I always talk about how food can bring back nostalgic memories and puris…

Masala Lamb Steak and Okra Fries

Lamb steak is a treat for us. It’s something that feels a little special because we don’t eat it often and leaves us feeling lie we have indulged. Steak is something we normally associate with restaurants, but it is so simple to do at home too. And it’s a great date night meal! I’ve never…

Happy Holi!

Today marks the Hindu festival of Holi, the festival of colour! Holi celebrates good over evil and in India is celebrated by lighting bonfires and play fighting with coloured powders and water.

Aloo and Spinach Paratha

Coconut Tadka Dal (Vegan)

I am the first to admit that I can’t seem to sustain a Vegan diet for good, let alone a month! But Veganuary is a great opportunity to try and cut back on meat and dairy and the recent trend over the years has really made us think about what we eat. For me and…

Diwali Preparations

I love this time of year. When the days get darker and the crisp Autumn air hits your face. The trees look so beautiful with its leaves transitioning from green to orange and red. It also means that Diwali is coming up and that means a celebration of delicious food, lights and music. Diwali is…

Paneer Burger

It’s been a little while since I’ve cooked something up for my blog. With lockdown ending, work getting busier and a toddler, life seems to be very busy! It’s been great though, we can finally see our families and friends and feel a sense of normality. I’ve slowly found the courage to eat out recently…

Barfi Bites

How amazing do these Barfi bites look? I can safely say I didn’t make them, but ordered them from a local company called Barfi Bites who specialise in making luxury Barfi coated in Belgian chocolate. Incredible! For those of you who don’t know, Barfi is a traditional Indian sweet made from milk powder and can…

Chai Spiced Coconut Porridge

We’ve all been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I agree! I can’t seem to start my day without a hearty breakfast, and porridge is the go to choice. It truly does keep me full until lunch but like anything, I get bored of the same old combinations. Therefore…
