Healthy and tasty cupcakes, a perfect accompaniment to the favourite cup of coffee!

Soba Noodles with Crispy Tofu Recipe:

Celebration of Womanhood with a garlicky Soba Noodles and crispy tofu topped with a delicious sweet and sour dressing.

What is the significance of a day like this I often wonder, why just a day to celebrate and therefore clearly mark and inequality in bold. It seems almost like a mockery in face of the reality, when you use, abuse, misuse a woman for the entire year long. Why is there no ‘’Man’s day’ but just  ‘an International Woman’s day’, it is only to remind her perhaps of being that special little stupid bait that is fed well, pampered, praised only to be slaughtered by a barbaric pawn later.

Amritsari Fish Recipe:

Crispy batter fried fish, a famous street side snack served across the city of Amritsar, India.

My weekend association with fish seems to be growing deeper with each passing day. Don’t you think, it’s a little too much for a non-fish family until recently to be eating it atleast once a week. I am happy for its healthier food but I am also excited at the opportunity of trying a completely new recipe each time, like this Amritsari Fish recipe today.

In season cooking in a spicy jackfruits kofta curry to warm up the mood and the palate.

It’s in-season and of those things that’s a treat for my people back home, aren’t these reasons enough to relish some jackfruit recipes and their memories. Yeah I can explicitly recall the discussion between my mom and granny (the only two vegetarians in our family of Carnivores), with a twinkle in their eyes they’d say ‘wah, aaj toh Katahal ki sabji bani hai’ (wow, it’s jackfruit curry today).
