Gujarati Khakra

These hand-made crackers are made thin and crunchy by roasting over a tava. They can be served with dahi or achaar for a perfect taste, and I’m so much looking forward to have them today. Another great thing about Khakra’s is that you can store them [...]

Keema Paratha

Keema Paratha has been one of my favourites for a long time.  I can’t remember when I first had it, but I always get pulled towards it, whenever I see it on the menu. Some of my most visited restaurants make it just perfect and I love to have it with any of the spicy Indian curries. Although I like non-vegetarian food, when I’m out with my vegetarian friends I don’t mind ordering the veg [...]
