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.

Mint Coated Chicken

Recipe for Mint Coated Chicken

Mint is something which is so strong in flavor and aroma. I really enjoy the smell it has and love to combine it with chicken, apart from Spinach. Check the Chicken with Pesto Sauce and Spinach stuffed Chicken. The green color in both of them is awesome.

So, I decided to give a unique twist to the humble chicken breast. Not to just serve it with some sauce but to coat it with mint. Though once cooked it doesnt stay green as it browns but it still carried the mint flavor.

Look at the darkish green coat that the chicken has.

Along with the chicken, I made caramelized onions which tasted amazing and provided that crunch.
As usual chicken was juicy and tender and the mint on the outside really gave a it a different twist.

Tutti Frutti Cake

Tutti Fruit Cake Recipe

Well, as you guys know I do not do desserts or cakes. But then my wife does, she cooks amazing desserts and like me, keeps on trying new things. But the puddings she makes are awesome. 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.

Slow Braised Lamb with Baked Potatoes

Slow Braised Lamb with Baked Potatoes

It has been such a long time that I got to cook something new. I have been very busy lately. travelling to Bangalore for work, then two consecutive weekends were busy in doing road trip to Dehradun and Lansdowne for some unwinding. The last dish I did was Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce. But now I am back! And with something amazingly continental or say perfectly simple, easy and yet delicious! 

I had been itching to try this for a long long time but wasn't getting time. And since it is not an Indian dish, It as hard to cook with my mom at home, so cooked it when it was only me, wife and kids at home. Off course, we had the chilled beer and white wine. Perfect Sunday afternoon lunch with family!

Here it is, Slow Braised Lamb with baked potatoes. I actually used mutton because it is very hard to find Lamb. It is the magic of slowly cooking the lamb which makes it all so amazing. The meat gets so tender, the herbs and spices, all the ingredients combine to end up with a mouthful of magic. Add that with the aromatic baked potatoes and you have a perfect lazy lunch.

Fish in Butter Lemon Sauce

Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce

Hey  People,

So, as it is happening, this is my second post of the day. Earlier, I posed this Mocha Mousse recipe by my wife. And, now here is what I made and relished this really, really, really simple Fish in Butter Lemon Sauce. 

Actually, I had promised my son to take him to meat shop as he wanted to see fish. So, I came home little early, took him to the shop, got some fillets and made this easy dish ready in 10 minutes flat. Timing was apt as my wife also reached home and likes to have a light early dinner. She was super happy!

Have a look below what it looks like.

She has made this Black Forest Cake which i think a lot of people loved. She is so good at desserts. Also, are these Uttapam on Bread, French Onion Soup and Goan Red Fish Curry. All these are totally to die for.
