I have a confession to make. For the first five years that my son was in school, my husband or I dropped off his (and later his sister’s) lunch everyday. We lived pretty much across the street from the school and were working from home, so it just made sense to run a hot meal […]

Is there anything better than an Indo Chinese fried rice? Honestly, I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and never get bored. I often make manchurian style fried rice with chicken, paneer, or just egg, but this time, I tried it with the leftover turkey from my Masala BBQ turkey, and it was […]

The summer is in full swing here in BC, and that means; I want to spend zero time in my kitchen. Weirdly, my family still wants to eat, how inconvenient right? Jokes apart, I can’t be the only mama that does not want to be standing in front of a stove right now. We’ve been […]

If you’ve been following my insta stories, you might already know, we bought our first BBQ this year. With all the COVID & stay at home business, I really wanted to create our own patio hangout for the summer. Canada Day always feels like the official start of BBQ season, and we can’t wait to […]

When you hear strawberry roti, what do you think? I’m guessing you either think I’m crazy, or brilliant. Let me help you out, this is definitely one of my most brilliant ideas, (right up their with blueberry idlis.) What I find is that the flavour in these rotis is quite subtle, it’s not really in […]

Oops, I did it again. Here’s another flavour – lime and basil roti. Honest confession, this is the only roti flavour that I actually intentionally came up with. (Unlike my other creations that were all prompted by fridge clean-ups, and using up fruit before it went bad!) So unlike most people I know, I love […]

This recipe for mango roti was created thanks to leftovers. (Like most of my other flavoured roti creations). I did a big cooking event for about 50 people, and grossly over estimated how much mango chutney I would need. As always, my first thought was to make atta out of the extra chutney. Turns out […]

Normally I try not to overdo the strong chemicals and toxic cleaners, but with all of the COVID business, that went out the window. We were disinfecting everything, all day long. Our house is filled with Lysol, bleach, hand sanitizer – things we normally avoid. As necessary as those steps were (and in some ways […]

I met my husband when I was 18, and we got married when I was 20. When I look back at my life (I’m 39 now), there are many moments of disbelief. Don’t get me wrong, I’m generally very happy with how my life turned out, but as they say – hindsight is 20/20. My […]

The first time I made this paneer and mixed herb macaroni, it was a total accident. (This is the theme with most of my original recipes.) We were having a some guests over for a holiday lunch, and I planned on cooking “Western food”. The thing is some of my family is pretty traditional dal […]
