Potato Curry – Instant Pot

My instant pot has been a life saver. Sometimes I just stare at it with the hope of it inspiring a great new recipe idea and for the most part it actually works! Jokes aside things have been wild these last few weeks and I think I speak for most when I say 2020 has…

Instant Pot Mung Dhal (muggh)

Mung or Maggh dhal is a staple in every Indian home and is a great option for vegetarians and can be made vegan too. Those that want, can add protein on the side such as chicken, chops or even fish.   Usually maggh takes really long to cook, it either requires pre-soaking or long boiling…

Roasted Tomato and Basil Soup

I’m that type of person that sees 20% cloud cover and automatically starts making comfort food. I love cold, rainy and over cast weather and along with it home made soup and stringy toasted cheese.   The perfect tomato soup needs different flavour dimensions, in this recipe i used garlic, fresh basil and balsamic vinegar….

I created this recipe after multiple complaints from friends and family that were completely mortified by the amount of free butternut soup I would ask for at Pigalle. I love Pigalle’s butternut soup so much, that I tried my very best to replicate the flavours. It took a bit of trial and error until I…

Proper Vegetable Curry

Being a young food blogger, people often expect to find exciting and innovative recipes on my blog. However I am quite old fashioned and I love proper homemade Indian food. I don’t limit myself to the traditional biryani and curry. My favourite dishes include okra curry and methi bhajee (fenugreek) and mince. Now and then…

Indian Curry Dumplings

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, mainly because my best friend has recently tied the knot. I’ve been so wrapped up in pre wedding events, I’ve slightly neglected the blog. I apologise for the lack of activity on the blog.

Lentils – Mugg

Being 21 years old, you’d think I’d be a bit more modern when it comes to food, on the contrary, I am very old fashioned. I eat like a proper Indian girl should and I love my veggies! That being said, today’s recipe is a vegetarian dish derived from a green lentil called the mung…
