Welcome aboard!

Indian cuisine is a riot of colours, flavours, and spices. Every state has its own unique culture- ingrained taste bud. And, to many of us staying within familiar tastes is a sacrosanct act. Of course an occasional trip to a speciality restaurant that serves another fare is ok. But, as a matter of routine ...at home...NO!

One of the benefits of being born to parents who dared an interstate marriage (am talking about India of the 70's) was being able to widen a regional taste bud to accept, experiment and, relish eclectic cuisines :-)

I love food! Be it traditional or fusion, cooking is all about turning out fare that is tasty and healthy.I welcome all lovers of good food to come on aboard and share your kitchen adventures.

Green peas & Walnut rolls

I've tried to make this a complete meal. It has a combination of protiens, carbohydrates, and essential vitamins with the walnuts throwing in a generous measure of heart healthy fats. Makes an easy and yummy tiffin box item for both kids and adults. Hope you like it :-)
Fresh or frozen Green peas - 1 cup
Walnuts - 50 gms
Egg whites - 2
Garlic - 3 cloves
Green Cucumber - 1
Green chillies - 4 Nos
Soy sauce - 2 dessertspoons (20gms)
For garnish
Mustard paste
Chilli sauce
Tomato ketchup
Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet. Add finely chopped garlic and stir till brown. Add in the green peas and keep stirring on low flame for 3-4 minutes. Break the walnut into bits and throw them in along with the green peas. Keep stirring till the peas are almost done. Add the egg whites and stir cook. The final appearance is like green scrambled eggs. Stir in the soy sauce. Julienne the cucumber and finely mince the green chillies. Add into the mixture and keep on for a minute. Take off flame. Garnish with the sauces.
Make regular chappathis or Kuboos (arabic bread). Place this filling on one side and roll the other side over to form a cylindrical shape.
Yummy hot or cold!
