Rose-Flavoured Bonda Sherbet| Tender Coconut Drink From Udupi-Mangalore

In the pretty coastal areas of Udupi and Mangalore, ‘bonda’ does not just mean a deep-fried snack that tastes delicious. ‘Bonda‘ is what tender coconut is called in these regions. Bonda sherbet is a beautiful, refreshing drink that you get in these parts of Karnataka, made with tender coconut water and lemon.

This Valentine’s season, I present to you bonda sherbet with a twist – the same beautiful-tasting drink with the hint of rose to it. The rose makes for a lovely addition, I have discovered, to the sherbet, making it all the more delightful. You’ve got to try this out!

Rehru| Kheru| Himachali Spiced Yogurt| Pahari Cuisine Recipe

Today, I bring to you a very simple but beautiful spiced yogurt recipe from Himachal Pradesh, akin to kadhi that is popular in most other Indian states. Locally called rehru or kheru, this dish tastes absolutely fantastic. It is a breeze to prepare as well. We had this with piping hot rice, and just loved it. I’m sure it would taste great with rotis and parathas as well.

Healthy Walnut Laddoo| Kid-Friendly 3-Ingredient Recipe

Healthy walnut laddoos are a breeze to make, and require just three ingredients – walnuts, raw cane sugar, and a bit of ghee. They have the goodness of walnuts in them (and the teeny-weeny bit of ghee you put in!). Free of refined sugar, they are an easy-peasy snack to make for kids, especially ones that have a sweet tooth!

Chaat Bruschetta| Indian Bruschetta Recipe

By now, you guys must be aware of my love for chaat. I can have chaat any time of the day or night! 🙂 So, when the theme for this week’s Foodie Monday came up – ‘bruschetta recipes’- I decided to add a very Indian twist to it. I decided to turn the bruschetta into a chaat. The result – a chaat bruschetta – was fantabulous, if I may say so myself.

Pressure Cooker Bombay Sagu| One Pot Aloo Sagu For Pooris

Happy, happy new year, people! 🙂

So, what are you eating this New Year’s day?

I’m making some Bombay sagu with pooris for breakfast today, which the family absolutely adores. We don’t do much of pooris, so it has to be a wonderful occasion (like new year’s day!) to warrant for some frying.

Check out my family recipe for Bombay sagu in a pressure cooker, very simple but so very delicious!
