Lavender Victoria Sponge Cake

Contrary to popular belief, a sponge cake is quite a difficult cake to master! It must be soft, airy, moist and have a super tender crumb. I’ve tried innumerable times to reach that perfection but failed miserably. Finally, after much experimenting, I’ve found the perfect recipe. This is a classic Victoria Sponge with equal amounts of egg, butter, sugar and flour. It is moist, and has the most tender crumb ever! The twist that we added to this was fresh lavender! It adds a completely new dimension and I wouldn’t suggest leaving it out! Ingredients 3 Eggs 175g Butter...

Cheesy Yogurt Dip

Cheese is awesome. Dips are awesome. Combine the two and life couldn’t get better! This cheesy yogurt dip is finger licking and bowl licking delicious. We like to say it’s healthy because it has yogurt in it, and barely any cheese. It still gets quite a cheesy flavor because we use a strong Parmesan. This dip is best served cold with crunchy chips, cucumber, carrot, celery and even tomatoes. You need some hung curd, mayonnaise, Parmesan, salt, pepper and a sprinkling of chopped spring onion. You make the hung curd by taking regular curd and literally ‘hanging’ it in...

Sambhar is quite an essential in a South Indian home. I love South Indian food. Though I don’t really know how to make most of the dishes.

You need toor (arhar) dal, sambhar powder, tamarind paste, whole red chilies and mustard seeds.     Cook the toor dal in some water with a pinch of turmeric and salt. This should take about 3 whistles if you’re using a pressure cooker.       Add the sambhar powder and...

Cheesy Onion Paratha

This recipe is inspired from my paternal grandmothers Cheese Paratha. There are just a few differences in the flavors, she only fills the parathas with cheese while we go a step further and add onions and red chili flakes. You could go with her way if you want a cheesier paratha. We find this is a little lighter but still as yummy! The ingredients are very similar to the Aloo Paratha recipe, you just change the potatoes for cheese. So, you need whole wheat flour, cheese, red chili flakes, onions, garlic salt and water for this recipe. You could...
