Spring Harvest Chapati Salad

Spring Harvest Chapati Salad

This salad transforms day-old chapatis into crunchy wisps combined with fresh spring produce, and a mouthwatering cilantro dressing.
Every time April rolls around, usually around Vaisakhi (they don’t call it a harvest festival for nothing), I remember what it’s like to eat fresh delicious produce. Fresh spinach, cilantro, vine grown tomatoes and cucumbers don’t even know much they’ve been missed.

Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

For many, Easter comes with many traditions. And Hot Cross Buns are as synonymous with Easter as chocolate eggs.

HOT and cross. Remember the nursery rhyme? “One a penny, two a penny. Hot cross buns.” The rhyme and the word bun always creates an inner child like excitement that conjures memories of yeast smells oozing from baking.

A La Madras Beef Bourguignon

A La Madras Beef Bourguignon

Julia Child. I could write everything cliché about this woman. But I won’t, except for stating my curiosity for food was cemented by this woman when I was 11 years old. Yeah, I was a strange kid.

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

IF dessert drama (not family drama) is your goal this holiday season then Carrot Cake should be your dessert. Everyone is opinionated about this vegetal cake. There are devout haters, purists, accoutrement adders, and ones who have sadly never had a deliciously moist piece of carrot cake. Without fail, there is always a lengthy discussion whenever carrot cake is served.

My Hummus Obsession Ends Here: The Best Hummus Recipe, Ever

My Hummus Obsession Ends Here: The Best Hummus Recipe, Ever

I am absolutely, completely, hopelessly, ridiculously obsessed with hummus. I, like actress, Natalie Portman crave hummus and have the ability to eat my body weight in hummus (yes, that’s my pop culture reference for today.) My hummus obsession is attributed to my mother and my favourite restaurant, Nuba.
