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

What to Make in Snacks This Diwali | Recipes

Diwali! The name itself makes me go down the memory lane. We would meet and greet everyone, while I specially used to attend the puja at my friend’s place. As I say, childhood memories are the best ones!

Diwali is the symbol of the triumph of good over evil. It is incomplete without the exchange of sweets and savouries with family and friends. 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

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
