Spicy Cornflakes Mixture


We make this so often at home that I can’t believe I’ve never blogged about it. Everytime we sit down to watch an Indian movie, we’ll have a bowl of cornflake mixture sitting in between us. Homemade mixture is so much better than store bought, you can add all your favourite things and omit the stuff you don’t like. Also it’s surprisingly quick to prepare.

I’ve never had much luck in getting idli batter to ferment, but last night I gave it another shot! I think I know why I got it wrong all these years, I simply didn’t add enough water (silly me!). I did a little research yesterday and came across a blog on idli making and troubles that particular blogger had. She said adding more water to the batter worked for her, so I thought I didn’t have much to lose, and it worked! Continue reading Idli

Scallop Sandwich & Chilli Mayo


I haven’t been posting much as we’ve been pretty busy with work, visitors, travelling etc. We have also been eating out far too much and last night I decided we really need to cut down on the gluttony. This recipe was really quick to throw together (we always have frozen scallops in our freezer) and the result was better than any gourmet meal. Simple and light, but still very interesting and tasty.

Vegetable Manchurian


We recently bought a new dining table and decided to have a little party to break out the table. I had my lovely sister in law, her mum and brothers and my grandmother over for dinner. Instead of the same old, I thought I might try some Indo-chinese recipes. This Vegetarian Manchurian recipe was a huge hit. There is no egg in the recipe, so it’s 100% vegetarian. You could use any combination of vegetables, so be creative! Continue reading Vegetable Manchurian
