Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino Recipe

Tuesday, September 29, 2015
Learn how to make Starbucks inspired Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino with only 5 ingredients.

How is Fall treating you all?? As always, America has gone into Pumpkin Frenzy. All i see is pumpkins and more pumpkins everywhere!! You can say i am joining the bandwagon!!! Last week, some of us had Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. Here is a very frank review- it was very very sweet. I doubt there was pumpkin in it. I am assuming there was some artificial flavor and it was kind of fake. That being said, there were others who totally enjoyed getting their sugar fix of the day. Some one even commented, I bet this is the most popular Starbucks drink among-st girls right now. Hell No!!! Not me!!!

I have experimented and come up with this super easy recipe which needs just minimal ingredients. And guess what, this drink is already gluten free and can be made vegan also.


Kerala Style Fish Curry Without Coconut

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

Hello there!!! Am back after a super lazy and sick weekend. Weather in California has been fluctuating pretty badly. It was cloudy on some days and sunny the other times,as a result i fell sick. All i did over the weekend was "sleep" but some how managed to cook my favorite Kerala Style Fish Curry/ Naadan Meen Curry/Meen Vevichathu to go with steamed rice and Tapioca(Kappa). Notice the fiery red color?? Yes, that's exactly how a Fish Curry without Coconut will look like. And since am from the southern side of Kerala, this curry is exactly how they make in Allepey/Kottayam.

What's special about Fish curries prepared in Kerala is the use of Gambooge(Kodam Pulli) to add sourness to the curry. That, as per me is very flavorful and takes the taste to almost a whole another level. Fish curry in Goa is also same like how they make in Kerala. Goa, just like Kerala is blessed with abundant Coconut trees.

Caramel Stuffed Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thursday, September 17, 2015


Hello guys,so am back with a not so very diet friendly recipe:"Caramel Stuffed Double Chocolate Chip Cookies". Doesn't that sound way beyond delicious?? So apparently, we have tea time at work every Tuesday and yesterday it was hosted by my team. And now you know why the above picture!!! As always, i was informed way too late about this and could think only of cookies in such a short amount of time. Cookies are my soulmate while in a crisis. How hard can baking them get, right?? Flour, Butter, Sugar, Eggs and throw in whatever you like and bamn!!! It's done! A glass of milk and few warm gooey chewy cookies. I am already salivating.

Friday, September 11, 2015


I personally love some real heavy duty breakfast every single day. We try to eat all traditional Kerala style breakfast that we have grown up eating like Idlis, Dosas, Appams etc. On days when that is not feasible I like to have really creamy and thick smoothies. This healthy ,creamy and easy to make smoothie is one among them. Trust me when I say you will not be tasting any avocados in it and also for all those trying to be gluten free and vegan, this avocado smoothie is a must try.

Hola guys!! I am back with my love for Paneer!! It's Paneer Bhurji time!!

I have been keeping crazy busy from last 2 weeks. Work and other household chores has been taking up a little more than my 24 hours in a day so much so that there are so many blog posts pending to be published. I salute bloggers who have a regular 9 to 5-day job and still squeeze in the time to blog regularly. No whining, this is how it's going to be moving ahead, so I better find time to do something I love and do as my hobby.
