Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sesame Chicken is one of my all time favorite Chinese take-out dishes. Despite my affinity for it, the summer is slowly approaching and I’m doing everything I can to cut unnecessary calories and fat, without compromising flavor. For example, although we’re breading our Cauliflower, we’ll avoid a ton of excess fat and calories by baking our florets instead of frying them. Even though this is a healthier choice than traditional Chinese take-out, no flavor or comfort factor is compromised.

Mango Salad with Miso-Sesame Dressing

Mango Salad with Miso-Sesame Dressing

This recipe came out of my cravings for something bright and refreshing but also something with a depth of flavour. What developed was an idea to create my take on a mango salad (Thai) with a miso-based dressing (Japanese). After making it the first time, my mother frequently asks for it to accompany our meals.

Spicy Croissant

Spicy Croissant

This recipe I tried once when there were some leftover croissant which almost reached its expiry. I wanted to use all the croissant as one dish. I make such kind of spiced masala with a flatbread. So I substituted croissant in place of flatbread and it came out tasty.

Spiced Orange Rice

Spiced Orange Rice

I make lemon rice often which is a common variety of rice in my country. Once I thought, why can’t I try the same with oranges and made this recipe. This is a very flavorful food with a little sweetness. Now we can use oranges for savory dish too. A great way to use your leftover rice.
