aloo, baked, patties, tikkiWe prefer eating healthier (almost !!) and try to make smart choices most of the time. If not me, at least Hubby dear is big time into eating whole foods and works out religiously. If there is no time for a full fledged work out session, he will atleast run and come. I also try to squeeze in some or the other form of physical activity whenever i find time. Offlate there has been too much going on the work front and since i have decided i won't abandon my blog anymore, that also accounts to some action. But hey, am not complaining!! Blogging gives me immense pleasure and i have something else to do apart from being in the IT Industry(Had it not been for the $$$, i would have qu(IT)....).

Let's welcome summer with some cool cool refreshers. This happens to be my first ever cocktail recipe up on the blog. I prefer mocktails more often(ready always!!!). This one i have experimented for my hubby darling, and he gave me a thumbsup!!
Mojito is a traditional cuban cocktail made with lime, white rum, mint, simple syrup and various other additions for flavors like all kinds of berries, grape fruit, pomegranate etc. You are free to experiment with your imagination.

Hello everyone!! What was for lunch today?? We had my perfectly cooked brown rice along with amazing wild caught fresh mackerel curry and fry. Let me tell you frankly, i was not a big fan of brown rice till some time ago and the major reason for that was whenever i tried to cook it, it was either mushy or undercooked, plus it took almost 40 minutes to cook. Isn't that a strong reason enough to not cook them anymore?? Plus, lets accept white rice is defintely more tastier!!
Over the time i have come to realize how almost everything white is not such a good choice. We dont even have all purpose flour anymore in our pantry(I would secretly love too though!!). Have you guys noticed how all white stuff says "Enriched"? Bleached enriched all purpose flour ...phew!! Not only have you bleached it and you even have the audacity to call it enriched!!! White rice is stripped of vitamins, zinc, magnesium and so many other nutrients in the process of refining.

The paneer that you get here is not very great. It can get really rubbery after cooked, which is a total turn off!! Few months back one of my friends told me about the malai paneer available in indian stores and how soft they were. She was right!! Am hooked onto them. At $6 per 400 gms, they are worth it. This is my style of paneer paratha. You can add veggies that you feel like mixing with paneer, most common being peas, which i didnt have, so just used paneer.

Hello everyone!! Isnt it summer in almost all part of the world?? New England is different you see...it mostly knows snow storms, blizzards, and more snow storms. I am forcefully trying to act like its hot and thus an ice cream. My favorite flavour always to order in restaurants is kesar pista, i just love it where as my man likes mango ice cream. This one was exclusively for him, plus i anyways had a mango left.

Today with our hot cup of evening coffee i made some almond biscotti's. I love biscuits, almost all of them, and always look forward to have some or the other thing to have a quick bite during evenings. Every time we go to the nearest indian store, Rakesh tends to buy so many snack items to munch upon, and well he can very much do that. He is one among those very few people in this world who can eat anything and everything they want and still be ......yes, super fit and trim!!! Someday i will cover that topic!! For now, lets get baking!! This is a fat free biscotti and i have made use of whole wheat pastry flour. You are gonna love them as a guilt free indulgence!!
