HUNG YOGURT WITH ROASTED PLUMS & COCONUT

  Every time I have some extra yogurt that needs using up, hung yogurt is my go-to option. I know it’s something that takes a good few hours of ‘hanging’ time for most of the whey to seep out from it, but it’s a simple enough task to do before bedtime … Read More »

OVERNIGHT OATS WITH SESAME BUTTER AND FIGS

  Overnight oats are so versatile. You bung the oats with some milk (any kind is fine and nut milks work really well too) and leave in the refrigerator overnight and voilà, breakfast sorted. I think we have found ourselves bang in the middle of this chia pudding/oat/smoothie bowl revolution and … Read More »

COCONUT CHIA SEED PUDDING WITH APRICOT COMPOTE

  Pudding for breakfast? Best case scenario. This might be the healthiest ‘dessert’ that I’ve ever eaten. Seriously, there isn’t one ingredient in here that isn’t good for you – the sweetness is derived from honey, richness from coconut milk, and the subtle heat and flavourings from the spices and dried … Read More »

THREE BEAN SALAD

This salad has been a part of my husband’s lunch box for the past two weeks now. Going on his third today, I was considering at least trying a different dressing to break the monotony, but he says he’d like to stick to this. The man can eat curd and rice for every meal for a whole month without getting sick of it! But back to the salad, if it ain’t broken don’t fix it, right?

MUSK MELON & STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE

I’m almost embarrassed by how outrageously simple this recipe is. If you can even call it a recipe, that is. I’m not much of a ‘juicer’ in the modern sense that the concept seems to have taken on; I eat too. While I don’t condone this detox/diet approach to this … Read More »

KALE, CUCUMBER & COCONUT WATER SMOOTHIE

“The chill of a moderate frost or light snow improves the flavour of kale” states a popular website that I follow for advice on growing and caring for plants. However, as someone living in Chennai, I don’t think I could ever say that Kale is ‘in season’. It’s the peak … Read More »

Lotus stem with chilli and honey

I have this really annoying habit. I like to peer into other people’s shopping baskets to see what they’ve bought, and try and figure out what they might end up doing with it. I mean, I think you really can tell a lot about a person by what’s in their … Read More »

Yogurt syllabub

I know it sounds like I just made this word up! Syllabub is an English dessert that’s made with milk that’s been curdled either with wine or any other form of acid before being flavoured and sweetened. I’ve used yogurt here which we know has already undergone that process, so … Read More »

Couscous with roasted vegetables

Is it just me, or did you also think that Couscous was a grain? I remember reading somewhere a while ago that it was actually a pasta in a minuscule granular form, but it must’ve completely skipped my mind when I made it alongside some Spaghetti arrabiata for dinner last … Read More »

Spiced baked figs with Vanilla mascarpone

I’ve recently discovered a part of myself that I never knew existed..an inherent need, a kind of maternal instinct if you will, to feed my family with an extra dose of fruit and vegetables. I’m not getting ahead of myself here, I’m still talking mascarpone, but I’m pretty sure … Read More »
