It was Diwali and a long weekend when I visited Kausani in Uttarakhand. It was a four days’ off, so I planned to head towards Himalayas.
I’d always wanted to explore Uttarakhand as Dhanaulti and Munsiyari in the state have always fascinated me. These are some offbeat hill stations to visit. I started with Kausani, Mahatma Gandhi called it the mini Switzerland of India and now I know the reason.
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.
In her Cookbook Cooking for Happiness Kornelia Santoro speaks about her journey as well as how she fought off one of the devils, depression, and of course the recipes. In my recent book review on Cooking for Happiness I’d shared why I like this book so much. It’s a guide to eat your food right, even if it’s a comfort food.

In my earlier post, I’d discussed on how to make Falooda at home. Hope you enjoyed making it. But what’s next? What did I do after making Falooda. Just simply had it with ice cream? Noooo, not simply. I’d added more ingredients to Falooda with Ice cream and Rabri to make it delicious, so that you like it and love me more for sharing these recipes! 😀 😀
Here is another recipe of khajur. Dates or khajur is a rich source of fibre, protein and vitamins.
I love to take khajur daily in my diet because of its health benefits. We can make a variety of desserts with this fruit like khajur halwa, khajur milkshake and the khajur laddus. After the milkshake I’m sharing another Khajur recipe with you. I consider cuisines made from the dates healthy as there is no need to add sugar unlike other desserts.
