I have been on this spree of experimenting with savory versions of oats. While I like the idea of eating oats for breakfast because of all of its health benefits, but a few days of oatmeal with the usual suspects like cinnamon or vanilla, with nuts, fruits etc. and I j...

An indulgent treat for my nephews who are visiting us this week. I had lovely fresh mangoes at home and I added them for a special summery breakfast treat. I love adding ricotta cheese to pancakes, they get this milky creamy texture that I adore. They are delicate and...

I love using up leftover idli or dosa batter for ponganalu, they make for a great snack or breakfast. There are very few things we can't find on Amazon. I was pleasantly surprised when I found a ponganala penam on Amazon, apparently the Danes use the same pan for pastr...

Saturday morning leisure + clean kitchen island = inspiration.

I mixed coarsely processed cauliflower with parmesan, garlic, salt, cilantro and green chillies topped generously over bread and toasted in the oven for a quick, fresh, crunchy breakfast.

Any self respecting south Indian takes pride in two things, filter coffee and soft fluffy idlis. R.K Narayan, in his work "A dateless diary", mentions that a family's reputation is at stake if word spreads that they do not serve good coffee. I would extend the same emo...
