I made Prawn Vindaloo for the weekend and I’m [...]

You can use any of the fish that you like. Get them cut in flat pieces, wash and marinate them for some time and then fry them in oil over a tava. It is fairly easy to make this at home and [...]

Prawns enjoy a special status amongst seafood aficionados.

Do you wish your fish is full of flavor and still cooked so light that it can fly? Try this or any other recipe for fish en papilotte.

The pouch can be of parchment paper, which traditionally was, or a paper bag or, as in this case a home made [...]

Grilled Tilapia – Tandoori Chicken Style

  Being a Punjabi has its own advantage, one of them is the basic understanding of what adds to the wow factor in food. If you understand two extreme taste pulls, you can’t go wrong. Tandoori Chicken and Butter Chicken both are popular Punjabi staples, definitely consumed more than Makki Di Roti and Saron da Saag. Tandoori Chicken and Butter Chicken define two very different cooking schools. While Tandoori Chicken gets the flavour of chicken ooze out, [...]
