Green chicken

This is the Green Chicken!  A kilo of chicken, chopped into small pieces, green chilli, coriander, some mint, green onions and the usual salt to taste. Of course, to give it some more spice, I threw in half a teaspoon of black pepper powder as well. Chop a bunch of onions, the green chilli (a…

Sitting stew

This classic once again appeared last night on our dinner table. The weekend is always lazy, particularly in this extremely hot weather, so one has to try and manage with the ‘easy cook’ options. And what better way to do it than use the ‘slow cooker’! Just get as many vegetables as possible, chop them,…

Mini burgers, maximum taste

The well-extended weekend, thanks to the Eid holiday in Bahrain, means that we are in the kitchen very often – and trying out new things. Yesterday was burger day – rather, mini burger day – and we had plenty of them. Preparing these is easy – with the usual tomato and onion and lettuce, topped,…

Red Riding Chick

Last week I discovered I had a five-litre ‘bag-in-a-box’ South African red wine stashed away in the ladder. It smelt all right, even for a wine novice like me – so I used it to ‘dress up’ chicken pieces in it. And nothing could be easier to cook than this. I took a kilo of…

Appam Ahoy!

Appam stew – the name’s an appetiser in itself! This is a dish I love but have not made at home for a while. The reason : we did not have the right kind of ‘deep’ pan to make the appam (a type of pancake made with fermented rice batter and coconut milk. It is…

Slow – and tasty!

Tried my hand at making the traditional Punjabi Chicken Curry – in a slow cooker, and with a tangy twist! The deal is simple. For a full (1000 gms) chicken, take two large onions, two large tomatoes, four large green chilli, three cloves of garlic and a table tennis ball size of ginger. Coarse chop…

Revival

I am now in the process of reviving this blog that I began three years ago but stopped somewhere this time in 2015. However, in addition to putting in an occasional recipe, I will also have pictures of food, mostly cooked at home, along with some reviews of restaurants we eat at.

Rangeela murga

Another weekend, another day when we do not know what to make of it. True, a weekend is often extremely boring because there is noting much to do anyway. Yes, we can go out  for a drive or just roam around malls, but since there’s been a constant light drizzle, staying at home is a…

Methi and Milk Chicken

It’s been quite a while that I have cooked anything to make these pages but this evening I thought this deserved to find some space. This methi (fenugreek) and milk concoction, with a few chicken pieces thrown in, is the perfect dish to take away that boredom and an unwillingness to get into the kitchen….

Pizza gone wrong – and right again!

These are some pictures of what happened when I tried making pizza this evening. Yes, it did go horribly wrong – the oven timing went awry – but we ate it anyway and so did Tyson, who had the leftover ‘ring’. Of course, there were a couple of pizza base left over so I made…

Onion and red jalapeño chicken

It was one of those nights when we needed a quick meal. And what better way to toss a chicken into the oven to defrost, chop some onions in the meantime and put the two all together into the pan. Yes, that” what I did and came up with this rather delicious, and very simple,…
