Foodie Times…

This week happened to be pretty good, food wise. With S staying here in Bangalore, we were ready to indulge ourselves almost every day. One mantra I am following from last year is that – If you can make something at home yourself, dont go out to eat. And that exactly is what we did this week fully.

Sharing some pictures –

This is the home-made capsicum-onion pizza. It was so yumm that S has demanded we make it every friday! Based on trial and error, I have finally found a perfect way to proof the yeast which in turn resulted in this crispy at the bottom, soft on top pizza πŸ™‚


We called it The Chat Night – where we made Pani Puri, Sev Puri and Dahi Puri. If I can have any number of pani puris at home, why wait in a queue for just 6 in a shop?!


I finally had my Dabeli fix one fine evening and ever since, I had been dying to prepare it at home. Except for the fact that my pav buns were very small and that I didnt add too much anyΒ butter – it turned out super tasty!


I love Chinese. A simple meal of Veg Fried Rice and Gobi Manchurian was very satisfying πŸ™‚


Please forgive the poor quality picture for my Mushroom Biriyani.. It was taken in haste for sending it to the sister. Mushroom Biriyani is a regular at our home almost every other weekend and S loved it so much! πŸ™‚


Again, pardon the below picture which does no justice to this yummy pasta – Creamy Spinach Sweetcorn Pasta!


We recently could find cheese powder in a super market and were so excited to tryout Cheesy popcorn – which was oh-so-tasty! πŸ˜€

  4. OMG! Everything looks droolicious, man! You make such yummy stuff at home! πŸ™‚ I really, really, really wish I lived next door to you – that way, I can hog my share of these goodies whenever possible. πŸ™‚

    Please share the recipe for the pasta and the gobi manchurian. I never seem to get them right. I would love to make pizza at home, too, but I have tried too many times and failed to attempt again. 😦

    • Thank you so much TGND πŸ™‚ I too really really wish I can prepare some of these for you πŸ™‚

      Sure, will share the recipe πŸ™‚ I have had a number of failed attempts with the pizza too. In the past, I have made it with wheat atta and it never was pluffy as this. And if I used Maida, yeast would not proof properly. This, is my first big success πŸ™‚ I will share the tips that I learnt. May be you can give it a try again πŸ™‚

  5. My God! GB, please accept my million bows. You churn up a storm in your kitchen every time! I was better staying off the blog.Now I want pain puri at 7 in the morning. You go,girl! πŸ™‚
