So I am on Instagram too! You may follow me on @kavbasavraj for more everyday randomness. Have a great day folks. 😀
Today I realised that it has been quite a while since I have posted any of my ‘quick fix’ recipes. It just hasn’t occurred to me to take pictures and do a post. Well anyway, here’s me today presenting to you with my yummy ‘Jacket/baked potato with beans and salad’. Mmmmm… 😛 This is very basic and probably the easiest to make. For this you will need…
Hello everybody! I am back to those of you who have missed me! 😀 Yes! I am still alive! lol. Ok so it has been a crazy long time since I have done a post. This summer has been a little busy but I am glad to be posting after what feels like years!! A lot has happened over the past few months and it does feel like there’s a lot to catch up on. But nonetheless, I shall start off with something sweet and something very recent.
So it was my lovely husband’s birthday a couple of days ago. I am not the kind who favours cooking/baking but when it comes to indulging, count me in! 😉 Continue reading
I always thought peanut chutney/peanut spread involved so much preparation until, I was told otherwise by my dear friend who gave me this easy recipe. So here it is.

Today has been absolutely gorgeous. The weather outside has been so perfect after all the gloomy, rainy days we have had so far. I am sure most of us are feeling so happy and chirpy about it. I certainly am enjoying every bit of it. 😀 Anyway, here’s me on day 6 wearing pink, bringing out the maxi, sandals and sunglasses. 😉

After ages, my DH and me decided to take a couple’s break for this Easter weekend. It was all very last minute but a well deserved break. We headed towards ‘Bath Spa’ for this weekend. The weather was amazing on the day we decided to do touristy bits and, on the other day it was gloomy, so we decided to stay indoors and make the most of the hotel’s spa treatments. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful weekend and a BIG thanks to my sweetheart who despite having a hectic work schedule, took a couple of days off (only from London, but not from work! lol) to take me away. 😀
The city of Bath is so romantic to me. It’s definitely one my favourite cities in England. Here’s a glimpse of our weekend. Lots of food, pictures and feeling relaxed. 🙂
Happy to be here……
I just realised that I have been posting quite a lot about food that I’ve been cooking lately. No, I am not 100% fond of cooking. I would love it if someone cooked all my meals for me or have take always every single day without ruining my health. 😉 Continue reading
I have to admit that I have never ever cooked deep-fried food till date. Any food deep-fried related is always looked after by my husband (bless him, he’s really good at it). I have several (genuine!) reasons for not cooking deep-fried food. Continue reading
I had a very heavy lunch today and hence, I decided to go slightly easy on my dinner. 😉 So here’s my Mediterranean salad.
Soya products are my favourite (except for soya milk!). Soya chunks, mini chunks and, soya mince, are a great substitute for meat products and they are equally tasty.
Soya also comes with additional health benefits when consumed moderately. These include; high protein content, ability to lower cholesterol, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and, they are rich in vitamins. Isn’t that great?! 🙂
One of my favourite (of many!) soya recipes is what I would like to call, the ‘soya fry’. Thanks to my sister for sharing this recipe with me. I love this dish.
I had some ‘me time’ today. Running errands, having lunch by myself and a tad bit of retail therapy. Oh the joy of doing things by myself. 😀
I went into Boots to buy some toiletries but ended up buying some lipsticks. I had no intentions to buy any cosmetics whatsoever but it was about time to dump my old lipsticks and buy some new shades.
It has been so long since I have done a food post. I haven’t been cooking a lot lately but that does not mean I haven’t been visiting my kitchen. 😉 Today I decided to make some radish salad with a slight South Indian touch to it.
So my darling husband began craving for some yummy Thai food this evening. Both, my husband and me are BIG food lovers and we don’t really need an excuse to get out and grab a bite or two. 😉
Scrambled egg with cheese, onion and tomato
So I woke up this morning with a grumbling tummy. I did what most of us would do, check the food cupboard and the refrigerator for anything edible immediately. Found no milk, no bread. There were some fruits but I didn’t want to eat fruits, I wanted something more. Luckily I had about 8 eggs, some onions, tomato, grated cheese and some spices. So I decided to make a healthy spiced scrambled egg.
Being a South-Indian, I have never failed to add curry leaves to any of my dishes. The BBC food describe them as “shiny, dark green, aromatic leaves from the citrus fruit family that release a delicious nutty aroma when fried in oil”. As the name suggests, it is used widely in curries hence the name ‘curry leaves’ and this is extensively used in Indian and South East Asian cuisine.
I have always liked Legumes (beans, peas, lentils) because they contain no cholesterol, they are low in fat, contain high proteins, minerals and vitamins, contain beneficial fat, a healthy substitute for meat, keeps me full for longer and tastes yum! Continue reading
