I just hit a decade on my food category..This is my tenth blog on food, am sure by now you know am a foodie.
I just had a Rye bread veggie sandwich. Now, what is a Rye bread you may ask.
Rye bread is a type of bread made with various percentages of flour from rye grain. It can be light or dark in color, depending on the type of flour used and the addition of coloring agents, and is typically denser than bread made from wheat flour. It is higher in fiber than white bread and is often darker in color and stronger in flavor. – Wikipedia

I have been working out recently at my nearest gym (Virgin active). My trainers have strongly recommended me to follow a strict diet and me being a vegetarian I have found a weekly diet planner that kinda works for me. I know it’s a difficult task to follow diet recipes and planners but if you want your body to shape up well with some exercise, its a must to follow at least 3/4 of the plan. I was such a junkie but I threw out that trash out of my snack cupboard and filled it with health snacks. Just try out this diet for 2 weeks and Exercise well. Eating raw fruits and veges can make anyone slim down. I know you will be craving for those crisps but control those taste buds for two weeks. You can make the veges tase super good with spicing and other flavourings. IF YOU THINK YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT THAT ICE CREAM. GO AHEAD AND GOBBLE IT DOWN THEN EXERCISE!

On a quiet Saturday afternoon, when you are home and you have nothing to do and feel very hot..but don’t have a swimming pool to dip yourself in (I do have a pool but was too lazy to dip my toe)..Drink vanilla milkshake!
1) Plain vanilla ice cream
2) I used clover vanilla flavoured milk, but you can use normal unflavoured milk
3) I used sprinkles to give my white drink some colour, but you can use chocolate flake or oreo crisps to “garnish” the drink
As an offering to the God, over 1392 different types of food dishes are offered in the Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar, Gujarat- India! (Source: Indian Food Kitchen)
That’s a lot of fooood! I hope the food went to the needy…
My chai time is between 16h00 to 17h00. Drinking tea and listening to Carnatic music is the best! I don’t like missing my chai time, if I do my evening gets ruined. That’s the one and only time I intake milk. I know its not healthy but am not a big fan of drinking milk.
I walked towards my fridge to find Continue reading
Want to cook Indian food but don’t know where to start?? I will do some help with organising your spice pantry.
“A spice is a dried seed, fruit, root, bark, or vegetative substance used in nutritionally insignificant quantities as a food additive for flavour, colour, or as a preservative that kills harmful bacteria or prevents their growth. It may be used to flavour a dish or to hide other flavours.In the kitchen, spices are distinguished from herbs, which are leafy, green plant parts used for flavouring or as garnish.“ — Wikipedia
Many people have a spice rack that looks pretty neat and kinda decorates the kitchen. I use a spice rack for my other spice inventory. For easy daily use..I call it “take ‘n use”.. I use a spice container which gets filled every now and then. My container looks like the one below, its a container with smaller partitions inside with a transparent air tight lid:
Why did I say Pav Dhal Makhani instead of Pav Bhaji?
I wanted to make some kinda dish that my taste buds were craving for, so I made Pav (bread rolls with butter/ghee) and Dhal Makhani as side dish.
Me being a vegetarian, I can’t avoid vegetables. My favourite pastime is to make salad. So, this blog will be about the carrot salad.
Being an Indian, out of many sophisticated factors food is one of those factors, I love to eat! On Sunday evening my hubby, brother and I had dinner at Thava. Yes, it’s a South Indian (Kerala) restaurant, Thava (sauce pan). Thava is situated in Norwood – Johannesburg, South Africa. This was my first time to Thava. The foods were rich in taste and mouth watering.
Tis time to speak about the food. Continue reading
