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.

Easy nutty chocolates

A lazy day enterprise with my 5 year old who loves anything chocolate!
Good Quality cooking chocolate - 100 gms (we used 64% dark)
Assorted nuts - 1/2 cup (roughly chopped)
 Dates - 3-4 nos (chopped into small bits)

Melt cooking chocolate (we used 60-70% dark). Roughly chop up almonds, cashews, dates. Pop the nut-dry fruit mixture in the oven for a couple of minutes. Line an ice tray with a layer of the mixture, top up with melted chocolate. Cover with aluminium foil, pop into freezer. Set. Eat.
