Masala Macaroni

Pasta traditionally comes from Italy, however there is a variety of pasta now available in Indian markets. The different shapes of pasta gives them the name, as an example the sheet pasta is called lasagne, long thin sticks are called spaghetti, while the elbow shaped ones are called macaroni. Pasta are generally liked by all, especially the kids. I have a constant demand from my son to give him pasta lunch for school. It is [...]Read More

Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Garlic Bread

If you love making new innovations through your oven or grill, you will surely like this simple recipe of Bruschetta (although I will like to call it caramelized onion and mushroom garlic bread). Bruschetta is an Italian starter dish and, as with other dishes from this country like pizza and pasta, is expected to be liked by a lot of Indians. If you step into any of the supermarkets or bread shops nowadays, you will easily find foot-long [...]Read More

Macaroni has become as Indian as it can get, however, penne pasta is still considered Italian. If you are fed up with macaroni and mayonnaise combinations for salads, here is a refreshing take on penne pasta.

It is important to cook pasta in a tomato soup of sorts, essentially [...]Read More

Pizza is an Indian Dish

We, the foodies, can thank late Mr. Rajiv Gandhi for marrying a person of Italian origin and opening India up to the cuisine of a country with which we do not share much heritage or history.  Otherwise, a Pizza may have been only about as popular as the Paella (the Spanish national dish) is in India. The pizza has [...]Read More

Pastay Di Sabji

If there is a true Italian in you, I would suggest you stop reading this  post any further. Yes, it is Pastay out here and not Pasta. Pastay Di Sabji is Pasta for those who love their veggies and their Paneer, and their Chinese and of course Pasta. Why Pastay Di Sabji? If authentic food has its place, so has fusion. Fusion cuisine has come out on its own and to some it can be [...]Read More
