Lemon Pound Loaf Cake Recipe

Wednesday, July 29, 2015


Hola folks!! If there is one good thing about this move, apart from the climate is the fact that i get to bake!! Quite often. All thanks to a lot of friends and family around. Some of Rakesh's friends had come over during the weekend and this was what i prepared for dessert. It was a big hit. I did not do a copy cat of starbucks per se, but some thing similar. Well, at least i knew the ingredients that went into this and they were very much pronounceable!!

This is my version of a light weight lemon pound cake than the traditional ones. So pound cake, as the name implies, contains a pound of everything- Butter, Sugar, Flour!! Which is way too much for many of the health conscious lot! This is as lemony as it should be, moderately sweet and oh so delicious. Your best tea time accompaniment is here!

Saturday, July 25, 2015


Hello guys!! I am back with a very simple, delightful and low-fat version of Matar Paneer. Unlike how they make it in restaurants, there isn't much fat in my version and hardly takes about 30 minutes to get it ready. I cook this recipe often and last made it while still in Boston. These pics were shot there. You will altogether stop buying them anymore, as it hardly takes any time.

I started preparing lot of items with paneer post marriage and some how after my paneer parantha  , this matar paneer masala/gravy is my favorite. What is your favorite paneer dish? Do let me know in comments.

Hello Folks! How is it going for everyone?

We have kind of settled down in our new home. Almost every weekend goes in assembling furniture, picking up stuff or attending get together's with Rakesh's friends or relatives. I promised a birthday cake for two of his(now mine too)lovely friends. And since not many had tried carrot cake before, i decided to bake it.

So apparently, there are two types of people in this world. One who love carrot cake and then the haters. I belong to the former category. How can anyone not like carrot cake is beyond me.

Hello Everyone!!

I know there was a no-show from my end for 10 days!! But hey, I have got reasons and this time, it's so genuine!! Remember how in my last post I had mentioned I had something to share with you all. This is it!! We have finally(finally!!!) moved to West Coast. And let me tell you all we cannot be happier anymore. We saw sunlight, and went bonkers about it. So, here i am in California!!! New place, new job and the move kept me really busy and exhausted. I have been dying to write a blog post from as long as I remember. Oh, by the way, let me tell you guys, I realized how difficult it is to get your internet connection transferred from one state to another. Seriously, it's rocket science as per the customer care representative.

Palak Paneer Recipe | Restaurant Style Palak Paneer | Spinach With Cottage Cheese

Friday, July 3, 2015
Happy July Everyone!! Long weekend is almost here and I cannot be more excited!! No, it's not the holidays, I will reveal the reason in my upcoming blog posts. I decided to start off the month with some greens and what better recipe to share than the king of all green leafy vegetables!! Palak Paneer.....!! Palak means Spinach and Paneer means Cottage Cheese. I will admit one thing, I was not fond of this dish much initially. I have had this couple of times in some restaurants and it didn't click much. It felt very bland and almost tasteless. Even baby food tasted better than that.(Yes, I have tasted it, don't judge me, and no, I didn't end up eating everything meant for a baby !!!)
