Coconut Ladoo Recipe

Coconut or Nariyal Ladoo Recipe

Dear Readers,

Today the recipe that I am going to share is not mine but my Mom's recipe. Though she is more famous for her soft and stuffy paranthas in my family but this time she tried something new, the Coconut ladoo.

Since we moved to Bangalore, my mom has made few friends who are south Indians and she has been learning few things. And coconut is available in abundance here. My kids love sweets and she made is especially for them.

I used to think making desserts or sweets is really difficult and complex but more I have seen my wife make those wonderful desserts like Bread and Egg Pudding, Tutti Fruity Cake and Mocha Mousse, I now know how easy are these. Do check out these recipes too by clicking on the name.

So this is how the amazingly tasty coconut ladoos look like.

Omelette stuffed with Salami

Stuffed Omelette Recipe

Eggs and me, inseparable! I just cannot get enough of eggs. It is must have in my breakfast. Whenever my mom asks me what I want to have for breakfast, invariably I will say "Omelette and Parantha". It just fills my heart with gladness! Oh la la, I just cannot stop talking about eggs.

Now, at times I do not plan what I want to cook. I will see what is in the fridge and then make something out of it. And today morning exactly this happened. My wife loves English breakfast, she is not the type of woman who loves stuffed paranthas like yours truly does. And I am a typical punjabi lad, I love my paranthas and butter. 

I saw some chicken salami and eggs in the fridge and thought of trying something different. And so I thought, why not stuff my Omelette with salami. Also, look at Shakshuka which is another fantastic breakfast.

Here is the the simple Omelette turned into a more delicious form.

Steam Lemony Corn

Hi Guys,

After another long disappearing act, I am back. Bangalore has been keeping me busy with hardly anytime on weekends.

However, I am back with the bang as you can see that your favorite blog has a new look and much easier on the eye. And I promise you, recipes will keep on coming.

Just yesterday my wife went for veggie shopping and got a couple of corns from market. My kids love corn and so do I. But we miss the soft 'bhutta' that they sell in Delhi which is done in sand. It is oh so yummy and juicy. And I thought I might as well try something new. Not in sand though. :-)

This is what I ended up with and I have to admit, it just came out awesome, at least if I believe my wife and kids.

Litpit Kaleji (Chicken Liver)

Litpit Kaleji Recipe or How to make Litpit Kaleji

Hi People,

It seems like I have been gone for eternity and I know it is true that I have not been posting for a long time. That is because I have not been cooking. Have shifted to Bengaluru and I have been staying on office accomodation for months but now my playground (kitchen) is all set and I have already started.

So, here is my first post from the new kitchen, but one of many to come from Chicken Shicken.

Last Saturday, I went into the chicken shop and got one whole chicken to make Pot Roast Chicken which you can see on my blog but then I also picked up some chicken liver, kaleji as we fondly call it in north. :P  And why do I call it Litpit? Well, because neither it is dry nor it has gravy. All the masala is covering the liver.

And like it happens, I mostly cook very impromptu dishes which are easy to make and delicious too. This Litpit Kaleji is one of them. Perfect to go with drinks (Now that is what I love doing on weekends). I never knew that such a simple 15 minutes thing could be so easy and simple.

Egg Frittata

Frittata Recipe or How to make Frittata

Hi Bhukkads,

How are you?

Weekend and time for that innovative and amazing breakfast, isn't it? Well that is exactly what I had today on this Lazy Sunday Morning. Two things I did, made this amazing breakfast and dusting of the house. Well, that is my way of helping my wife at home on weekends. Trust me, I do both things with passion as I like my food good and my house without a spec of dust.

Anyway, enough bragging and lets get to drooling. I have always though of baking eggs a fantastic way to have eggs. Egg Frittata was one thing that I wanted to make as I love eggs. Give me eggs anytime, in any form, I will be happy! It is also a more nutritious form as you can add as many veggies that you want. I had only peas and onions in the house and made do with them but you can add anything that you want. Carrots, capsicum, mushroom, anything you love! Well, if I had planned it well, I could have added salami and sausages too! Hell yeah! Though Frittata in Italian translates to "fried" but I baked them totally except the veggies that I sauteed beforehand.

Bread and Egg Pudding

Bread and Egg Pudding

When is comes to sweets and desserts, there are only two things I look forward to. The sweets with less sweet or any dessert made by my wife Bhavna. If you have seen the Tutti Frutti Cake she made which is on my blog, you will know how good she is with all things sweet.

On the same day she made that cake which she baked in afternoon, she made this even more awesome Bread and Egg Pudding for dinner. I have had puddings before, I have had good ones, but the flavor and taste was so awesome that I am still craving for it again. I must say, totally out of this world thing.

It doesn't look fancy, but let me tell you it looks delicious for sure.

However, in our amazing extravaganza on Sunday, she made this cake which came out just like a professional bakery product. The texture, the taste, the look, everything was just perfect. Here is another cake she made, the Black Forest Cake that you might want to check out.
