Feel the Jungle in Mumbai with Rainforest | Press Release

Rainforest, a ‘Jungle’ theme-based Restro-Bar had rolled out a campaign this Diwali named as ‘Ek Diya Jawaano Ke Naam‘. Diwali, celebrated with much pomp and glory at the end of autumn in India, is popularly known as “the festival of lights”. As bit by bit, every corner of the country lights up — with diyas, with the sparkle of a firecracker in the sky and with the brightest of smiles.

While every Indian celebrates the festival pompously, there are soldiers who don’t even remember when did they celebrate their last Diwali with their families. The purpose of the campaign was to establish an emotional connect between the civilians and the soldiers during festival. While conducting the campaign, Rainforest gave away Diyas to the customers, urging them to light them in the name of the brave soldiers who are guarding the borders so that everybody can celebrate this festival safely.

Bhindi Recipe, Less Ingredients and an Awesome Taste

Bhindi is a very common vegetable at Indian Kitchens. There are so many different ways you can cook Bhindi or lady finger or okra. I, recently, came across something unusual made of Bhindi at a food show. A Bhindi Ice Cream! You can find it in Gujarat. I don’t know if we can get it in other parts of India too.

Earlier, I’d shared an on-request recipe of Kurkuri Bhindi Fry. Just click on the link and try another Bhindi Recipe. Do not forget to write to me or tag #foodeezjunction when you share on Facebook or Instagram.

Please Your Palate! Homemade Kachoris Recipe | How to Make Kachori

I always preferred Pooris over Kachoris until now. While buying vegetables for last week, I got Karonda (or crane berries) too. Upon seeing Karonda, the first thought was to make its sabzi like how mom-used to make at home.

I called mom over phone and told her about the veggie and she was pleased to tell me the recipe on how she makes Karonda ki Sabzi. And then when she asked what will you make as the accompaniment, I plainly said paratha. She encouraged me to make Kachoris this time and have with Karonde ki sabzi. I followed her and the result was really really great. Continue reading Please Your Palate! Homemade Kachoris Recipe | How to Make Kachori

I don’t know how many (or all of you) wait for your Diwali bonuses, a gift from office 😉 .. Well, I used to wait for it 😀 Continue reading What to Make in Snacks This Diwali | Recipes

A Three-Course French Meal to Pamper Your Wife | Recipes by Chef Ashay Dhopatkar

Chef Ashay Dhopatkar
Chef Ashay Dhopatkar

Thank you Chef Ashay Dhopatkar to guest post the recipes with Foodeez Junction on the occasion of Karwa Chauth.

The saying, ‘a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’, is not true only for men! Women have discerning palates too. Karwa Chauth, a day when wives fast to pray for their husbands’ health and longevity, is the perfect time to pamper your wife’s taste buds. What’s more, if you don the chef’s apron in the kitchen it will give her a much-needed respite from toiling in the kitchen. As if that’s not all, it could be a romantic evening for the two of you when you feed her with the labours of your love.

While Karwa Chauth is a perfect day for a man to take charge of the kitchen and let the wife chill, don’t restrict exhibiting your culinary skills for special days only. Set aside at least two meals in a week when you surprise your wife and become a chef par excellence! Cooking at home should be a shared responsibility – not to just ease work or life-related pressures but also give an opportunity for couples to bond.

In fact, as I look at it, it is not even a responsibility! It is a lot of fun. There’s nothing like making a surprise dinner for your partner every once in a while to take your romance several notches higher.

I would like to share some really easy recipes that you can replicate at home to rustle up a fine-dining experience within the confines of your home.

So we begin with a Soup, go on to an Entree and round off with a delightful dessert

Bon Appétit! Continue reading A Three-Course French Meal to Pamper Your Wife | Recipes by Chef Ashay Dhopatkar

Tawa Butter Naan Recipe | How to Make Butter Naan on Tawa

Here I’m, again, with another recipe. Tawa Butter Naan! The name Tawa Butter Naan because I’d made it on tawa or griddle. I hope you will like this recipe. I’m starting with the basic recipe of plain naan which can then be converted to butter naan. You need to follow the method given for the recipe 🙂

Naan is flat-bread, baked in hot tandoor or ovens made of clay. That’s why when these naans are prepared in ovens, they are called as tandoori naans. Naan, basically, has an origination of South Asia. There are many variations of this flat bread. For example – Kashmiri and Peshawari naans are filled with dry fruits, Garlic, butter and Roghani naans. Continue reading Tawa Butter Naan Recipe | How to Make Butter Naan on Tawa
