Exactly four ingredients and you have on your table a delicious creamy paneer dish. I am not particularly a paneer person,but Tuesdays in my kitchen calls for me to be as innovative as I can get. This dish ticks on all the right boxes – creamy,subtle and delicious. A perfect accompaniment to rotis and pairs exceptionally well with pulaos. Its winters almost and we can now indulge in rich indulgent food. The use of pepper in this dish surely elevates the tastes.
With the festival season coming to an end for the time being, now with Diwali over and before the Christmas cheer starts again, its time to give your palette some rest! How about trying this Couscous Salad with Grilled Cottage Cheese. Couscous is a versatile grain and packs a punch when served along with a variety of vegetables. With winters approaching, there is an array of green vegetables in the market, so its best to use them regularly in our meals. If your everyday Dal – sabzi doesn’t seem palatable enough, you should try this dish.
This Diwali add a Bengali touch to your dessert menu. Make the quintessential Payesh – a rice pudding considered to be so auspicious that no celebration in a Bengali household is complete without it. The ever so popular sweet dish, there has not been a single birthday when Maa had not made Payesh with loads of raisins for me. Now I do it for my little boy ( also for my husband ! ) A bowl of payesh makes them super happy.
Every Bengali family has their own recipe for making this dish. The one I am sharing today is by far the easiest and is made with condensed milk. And I believe any that has Milkmaid in it is super delicious. No seriously! Have u ever tried licking the sides of a milkmaid tin – its heaven and I do it even now!
A big hello to everyone. Well, I have been MIA for sometime now reason being a frenzied puja season. First an all girls holiday, then off the baaper bari for pujo and now back but neck deep into Diwali preps! Busy soul me! But then that’s how I like it to be. Being busy, keep doing something or the other but definitely keep going back to what I love most – creating new dishes in my ktichen and then blogging about it. My little time off to Goa with my girl friends worked wonders and completely rejuvenated me. And as usual my visit to my moms house was filled with laughter and food.
This Cream Cheese Buns recipe is something I saw Rachel Khoo make on TV the other day and I was kicked to make them too. Just followed a basic bun recipe and then filled them up with herbed cream cheese. Very easy and flavorful. The knots might seem a bit difficult to make so you can make your usual stuffed bun shape. It will work just fine.
I am hoping that I will be very regular with blogging and sharing from now on and continue to follow my passion! It is something that has given me a lot – new friends , recognition and much much more.
