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.

Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes

Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes

I enjoy eating fried food items from time to time (who doesn’t?). I especially like thinking of new foods to fry. These Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes have been floating around my head since I watched the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, years ago.

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.

Gingery Carrot Magic Sauce (Dressing)

Gingery Carrot Magic Sauce (Dressing)

I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE: I’M AFRAID OF THE VEGETABLE GRATER. I have Gratophobia.

I know, it’s silly. It’s true. I avoid grating anything. I leave it as the last task in the kitchen. I have been known to bribe others, namely my niece and nephew to grate things on my behalf. Or I use the grating attachment on my food processor.

Happy Hour
Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

We are heading into the holiday season. Happy Hour. Cocktail Parties. It’s time to make some drinks and desserts, but with a South Asian kick.

This homemade spicy ginger syrup is versatile for both cocktails and non-alcoholic “mocktails” and even desserts. The best part is it’s simple to make.

Where did the inspiration from this Ginger Syrup come from? Chai tea, of course.
