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 […]

Two things you will always find hiding in my fridge are – a little bit of leftover cooked rice, and fresh dhaniya (aka cilantro).

Baked tandoori chicken, the name of the recipe really does speak for itself!
