Khow suey – Burmese noodle soup

My love for noodle soup is immense. It’s soup but better than just soup. It’s like a warm hug in a bowl. It’s a complete dish on it’s own. As winter is around the corner, the frequency of all kind of soupy dishes are definitely going to go up in my kitchen. I have already…

Bengali Egg Tadka

Tadka in kolkata is a lentil dish and has nothing to do with “Tadka” that rest of India knows. This is a dish you will find in all Dhaba style restaurants in Bengal. Whenever mom didn’t feel like cooking, this used be the most common take out dish, served with Rumali roti. There’s also many…

Ghugni – A spicy Yellow Peas curry

Ghugni is a bengali dish which is often served for breakfast or as a snack. It is usually served with a butter toast. I even have it for dinner sometimes with Paratha. I don’t believe in labelling a food as a breakfast or a dinner dish, mostly for my own advantage. This is a vegetarian…

Chicken Puff Pastry

I have had a lot of these as a kid, without knowing what it’s called. The bakery store where I used to have it used to call it some fancy name. Well making puff pastry at home in definitely a long and tedious process, difficult too if you stay in hot and humid areas. If…

Date Walnut Muffin

I love a good loaf of Banana Bread, no doubt there. But, I think it has had a bit too much of glory while there are other amazing options as well, like a Date Walnut bread. Naturally sweetened because of the date this also packs texture from the walnuts. This is also a hit at…
