Savory Onion Crackers ~ Baked Nippattu November 3, 2010

Deepavali or Diwali is next week and I normally do not prepare any savouries and sweets for the festival, unlike the tradition back home. This year however, seeing the preparations of fellow bloggers, I was motivated to prepare some at home. Sunday morning, I baked Nippattu from Red Chillies and she says baked nippattu are very popular in Bangalore bakeries.

Let me start off with serious business first, plagiarism is something every blogger dreads about.  Every other month, this topic is brought to forefront by bloggers who have become victims or have a friend who has become a victim of this act.  In many cases it is a blogger replicating a recipe and/or a photo from another blog and at times it is the mainstream media that stoops to this  act.

Indian Cooking Challenge: Punjabi Pakora Kadhi October 15, 2010

I was in India last month and could not part of last month’s challenge. This month’s challenge is Punjabi Kadhi, Simran’s recipe.  Kadhi is  a yogurt based gravy, cooked in several parts of India and each part of the country has its own way of preparing it.  Growing up, I had eaten kadhi at my neighbor’s place but never Punjabi Kadhi.   So, I was excited to make it and also for a  change, it was nice to try out something other than a sweet or a snack for ICC.

Soya Nuggets Curry October 9, 2010

I am not a big fan of soya nuggets and these nuggets are strangers in my kitchen. However, I like soya granules and cook it once in a while. The reason I don’t particular like soya nuggets is, no matter how much spice I add to it, it always tastes bland and I also do not like the texture of nuggets. I have eaten soya nuggets at my relatives places and it tasted fine. I tried following their recipe but cooking good soya nuggets just wasn’t my cup of tea! I normally soak the nuggets in boiling water, squeeze out all the water from the nuggets and cook it along with a vegetable such as spinach or beans.  No matter how I cooked, it never appealed to my taste buds.
