Cream Cheese Mustard Knots

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.
