Sharmila's Satwik Rajma Curry / No Onion-No Garlic Red Kidney Bean Curry




Sometimes you meet people at the weirdest of places but forge such a strong connection that they become a part and parcel of your life. I met my dearest friend Kate at the breakfast room of the hotel we were staying, when we first came to Cincinnati. And I met my other dear friend Sharmila at a Food Blogger's group on Facebook.

Sid's Favourite Salmon Cakes


These "Salmon Tikkies" or "Salmon Cakes" as Sid calls them, is his favorite way of eating Salmon. 

He L-O-V-E-S these. 

Like me, Sid is also a fish addict. And perhaps this is the reason we end up eating fish three to four times a week.

There was a time when I had to make this Salmon cakes every week.

Seriously! I am not exaggerating a bit. Sam literally had to beg me to make some other salmon recipes. We still have it at least once a month .

Quinoa Pilaf or Cracked Wheat Pilaf - My Weeknight Staple


Cracked Wheat Pilaf


This post was long over due. I have noticed that things I cook most frequently are the one most neglected. This Pilaf that I cook either with Cracked Wheat or Quinoa is on our dinner menu for at least two days in a week. And the leftover are delicious for lunch the next day.

Shakshouka - The Bong way!

This was supposed to be my post for the Bengali New Year, which was on the 15th of April 2014.

I missed it.

Then again I thought of posting it as my Easter post.

I missed again.

So before I miss posting it again, let me hurriedly finish the post.
