Eating through a thaali

What is a thaali? For the uninitiated, a ‘thaali’ means a ‘plate’ in Hindi and in Bengali (and I assume several other Indian languages and dialects). In the food world, a ‘thaali’ is several dishes, served on a large plate. 

Contrary to culinary styles of the West, traditionally, each Indian meal comprises several courses. A home cooked meal could be a simple roti subzi affair, or if you grew up in a home like mine, about 4-5 dishes on an average.

(Above: A home cooked Mizo meal – all cooked by my friend’s super amazing mom. Rice, lentils, ancham(mustard greens), squash and smoked pork)

Served on a large plate (usually metal or earthen), typically, a vegetarian thaali consists of staple carbohydrates (rice and/or roti/chapati), a dry vegetable dish, a gravy vegetable dish, daal (lentils), raita (yogurt with or with vegetables), papad, achar ( pickles) a dessert. Meat and fish dishes are also a part of a ‘thaali’, as non-vegetarian options. The number of dishes vary with the decadence of the meal. 

(Above: A raan (whole leg of lamb) thaali)

Every state in India boasts their own thaali. The concept of eating several courses for a meal has been disappearing from homes for several reasons including the shift to nuclear families and urbanisation. Thankfully, thaalis are always in vogue and easily available in restaurants, to give everyone a taste of traditional food. If you really want to experience the best thaali type, multi-course Indian meal, make Indian friends and make sure you are invited to a wedding or for some festival celebrated at home!! 

Thaali eating guide:

1. Divide up your rice for the number of dishes that you have been served. Very important, if you are a small eater.

2. Focus on eating the dishes, go slow on the carbohydrates.

3. Seconds are served at almost all restaurants, so don’t be afraid to ask for more. 

4. Eat up. 

5. The most important one: Skip breakfast.

Happy eating!!

Back from my hiatus

I’ve been away for far too long. In the last year and a half, I quit my job, moved cities, started another job and got caught up in everything around me. Mumbai is a crazy busy mad city and has always been a city I love, and I am glad to be here; but I am surprised at how much I miss Delhi.

The last few months have been crazy hectic at work (the life of a corporate lawyer is unnecessarily complicated), and I have found myself increasingly missing this place where I had found some virtual friends, fellow food lovers, great photographers and spectacular cooks. So at last, I got off my (pardon my French) ass, and I am willing myself to stop working 18 hours a day, and try and get back to blogging some.

So here’s to another attempt at blogging about food and everything else that I love. I plan to make some changes around this virtual space that I (kind of) own (for free!).

It’s good to be back again. 🙂

Pumpkin Walnut Cake


It is amazing how everyone has such lovely stories to share when they bake. But sometimes (well in my case almost every time), you just bake because you want to. Especially because there is something you are just dying to try out or mostly, because you have just the right stuff in your fridge and pantry. And sometimes, it just turns out perfect! This is the story of my pumpkin walnut cake. I made it because I just did. It is dense, moist and just scrumptious.

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

For the cake:

  • Butter: 250 gms.
  • Flour: 200 gms.
  • Cornmeal: 150 gms.
  • Pumpkin puree: 400 gms.
  • Sugar: 350 gms.
  • Salt: 1 teaspoon
  • Baking powder: 1 ½ teaspoon
  • Eggs: 2
  • Vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon
  • Cinnamon powder: 2 tablespoon
  • Walnuts (chopped): 100 gms.
  • Milk: ½ cup
  • Quark /mascarpone: 200 gms.
  • Caster sugar: 100 gms.

For the ganache frosting:

  • Dark chocolate (70%): 200 gms.
  • Cream: 200 ml.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????


Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

Line a 9 inch square baking dish with parchment paper.

Sieve the flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder and cinnamon powder in a bowl and set aside.

In a food processor, beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy (about 8-10 minutes).

Add the eggs, one at a time and incorporate well.

Mix in the milk, followed by the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract and incorporate.

Add the sieved dry ingredients, about half a cup at a time, and mix well.

Fold in the walnuts in the batter.

In a separate bowl, mix the quark/mascarpone and sugar until smooth.

Gently pour the batter in the bowl and smooth the top with a spatula.

Pour the cheese on top.

Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Remove from the baking dish and cool completely.


Break the chocolate in to small pieces.

Over low heat in a saucepan, heat the cream, making sure that it does not boil.

Remove from heat, add chocolate and mix with a whisk until smooth.

Cool to room temperature.

Pour the ganache on top of the cooled cake and smoothen the top.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella Frosting


I have been super lazy for the last couple of months. It has been crazy cold in Delhi this winter, and all I can think about is slipping under the blanket with a hot cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong, I have been cooking and baking, just haven’t been writing about it!

My friend just celebrated her 30th birthday, and I wanted to bake something special for her big day. These cupcakes were just perfect, because after all, chocolate is her favourite! These super-moist gooey cupcakes were devoured at a pretty decent speed, and I was happy to see them go!


You will need:

For the cupcakes:

  • Caster sugar: 1 cup
  • Plain yoghurt: 1 cup
  • Vegetable oil: ½ cup
  • Eggs: 2
  • Flour: 1 ½ cup
  • Cocoa: ½ cup
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Crushed peanuts: For sprinkling on top (optional)
  • Chocolate syrup (optional)

For the Nutella buttercream:

  • Nutella: 300 gms.
  • Butter: 150 gms.

For the cupcakes:

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

Line a regular 12 cupcake tin with cupcake liners.

In a large bowl, sieve the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together.

In a food processor or a large mixing bowl, whisk the oil and sugar together until creamy (about 5 – 10 minutes).

Whisk in the yoghurt until smooth and add the eggs, one at a time, while continuously whisking, until pale and smooth.

Add the sieved dry ingredients from the third step, about half a cup at a time, and mix in, until smooth.

Fill the cupcake liners halfway with the mix.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes.

Cool to room temperature, on a wire rack.

Makes about 12.


For the Nutella buttercream:

Ensure that the Nutella and butter are at room temperature.

In a food processor or a large mixing bowl, whip the Nutella and butter until smooth.



To decorate:

Use piping bag with a large star nozzle to ice the cupcakes.

Top with some chocolate syrup and peanuts, if using.

Pumpkin with Sage and Butter


This makes everything else better. Enough said.

You will need:

  • Pumpkin: 500 gms
  • Butter: 3 tablespoons
  • Sage: 8-10 leaves
  • Pepper: to taste
  • Salt: to taste

Cut the pumpkin into ½ inch cubes.

In a pan, over medium heat, melt the butter and add the sage. Remove the sage leaves as soon as it starts to crisp up.

Add the pumpkin cubes and cook for about 20 minutes, or until caramelized.

Add salt, pepper and crisp sage and serve.

Eat as a side with steak, grilled chicken, tossed with pasta with some olive oil or just about any way you want to.

Dark Chocolate Brownies with Salted Caramel Sauce

I am finally back on my own two feet! The broken foot has (almost) healed and the backlog of office work somewhat cleared! I really missed being able to cook and post something for such a long time.

This post is about my favourite brownies. These are rich, dark and wonderfully decadent! I made this batch for a darling friend’s Diwali party last Saturday. Try these out, and I hope you love them as much as I do!



You will need:

For the brownies:

  • Dark chocolate pieces (unsweetened/mildly sweetened): 225 gms.
  • Butter: 250 gms.
  • Flour: 1 and ½ cup
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Caster sugar: 250 gms.
  • Cocoa powder: 2 tablespoons + 3 tablespoons for dusting (optional)
  • Eggs: 4
  • Salt: ½ teaspoon

Preheat the oven to 150 degree Celcius. Line two 8×8 square tins with butter paper or grease well with butter.

Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar, cocoa powder and salt and set aside.

Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl over low heat, melt the butter and the chocolate and mix until smooth. Make sure to stir constantly to avoid burning it.

Take the chocolate off the heat and add the dry ingredients (from the first step) stirring constantly to get a smooth mixture.

Add the eggs and whip to get a silky smooth consistency.

Divide the batter into the two tins and bake for 25 minutes.

Once baked, cool the brownies in the tins and then carefully remove them.

For the salted caramel sauce:

  • Sugar: 1 cup
  • Water: ½ cup
  • Sea salt: 1 teaspoon
  • Cream (I used 20% fat): 200 ml.

In a pan over medium heat, add the water and sugar and allow it to caramelize. This may take about 15-20 minutes.

Once the sugar turns a golden brown colour (or slightly darker if you prefer that, like me), add the cream, whisking constantly with a wire whisk. (Use gloves or be extra careful, as the caramel tends to splutter and burn)

Stir in the salt and remove from the heat.

To assemble/serve:

Cut the brownies into 2 inch squares (or larger if you prefer) and dust liberally with cocoa powder, if using.

Drizzle salted caramel sauce generously.

Serve cold or warm in a microwave.

Eat several.

A Post About Food

I have had a weird last couple of months. Most of June was spent in the US, holidaying, partying and having the time of my life. After a long long time we three sisters got together and the husbands and kids were considerate (although I am sure a tad bewildered) to let us be our wild young selves again! I came back to Delhi (upset) and promptly fell and broke my foot. Uggghhh. I’ve been in bed for three weeks now and I guess I have another couple of more weeks to go before I regain full mobility. Needless to say, I am bored out of my wits, unable to cook, clean or do anything fun or even mundane. I never thought I would say it, but I miss office so much!

Well, other than just wanting to whine a little, what I really wanted to do was to share a few pictures of some delicious food we chowed down in the US. We managed to take very few pictures (only when we remembered) since we all find it fairly difficult to wait for photo-ops when delicious plates of food wait right in front of our faces. I had to hold back some hungry (and slightly angry) wolves to get these few pictures!

So first up, Vegas, baby! In sin city, it is REALLY tough to choose which restaurant, café or buffet you really want to eat at. After walking almost the entire strip in Las Vegas, we were in desperate need of some good food and great alcohol! We finally picked Otto at the Venetian by celebrity chefs Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. Although it is really famous as a pizzeria, we didn’t end up eating any! The food was simply incredible, fresh and delicious! The service was fantastic too, and they were more than willing to accommodate our food restrictions and allergies! Bonus points for that! So for dinner that night, we ate:

Antipasti (Salami Cotto and Mortadella)


Octopus Celery and Potato Salad


Grilled Pork Chop (with scallion pesto and endive)


Steak Tagliata (with arugula, parmigiano and aged balsamic)


Grilled Swordfish (with tomato, olive and capers)


Next up, dessert in New York! We stayed at a hotel which was literally across the Cake Boss Café by the very famous Buddy Valastro (yayy!!). This place is always stuffed with humans poring over their desserts and treats, and unable to do much else but stuff face. We decided to join in! We ate at the café, packed some for later and went back again for breakfast. Need I say more? We loved their treats and couldn’t get enough!


Red Velvet Cupcake


Carrot Cake




Fruit Cheesecake


Red Velvet Cake


Chocolate Truffle Cake


Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake


Last, but definitely not the least, and my most favourite place evvvaaaahh (*drumroll*), Momofuku Noodle Bar by the eccentric food genius, David Chang.

Now this was a spectacular experience. This place truly feels like a bar and serves amazing food. The best part, you can sit in front of the kitchen at the ‘bar’ and watch the chefs make magic! The ramen girl was the fastest person I have ever seen in a kitchen! The chef preparing the scallops (I ordered one because they looked mighty impressive), meticulous and friendly. He managed to chat constantly while never stopping for a second!

DSC07096 DSC07095 DSC07081 DSC07084 ??????????????????????????????? DSC07080 ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

I wanted to order almost everything on the menu, but unfortunately couldn’t. If there is one place I want to go back to it will be this. Flavourful and wholesome, edgy and chic the food is everything you want and more. The warm bowls of ramen feel homely but are dressed up like fine-dining. It is beyond wonderful. This is what we tried, you should try everything.

Diver Scallop (with grapefruit, daikon and chervil)


Sausage Buns (with mustard, cucumber and pickled red onion)

Shrimp Buns (spicy mayo, pickled red onion with iceberg)


Momofuku Ramen (pork belly, pork shoulder and poached egg)


Cranberry Basil Rolls


This post is simply about these rolls. Lately I have had some terrible luck with yeast, but I recently managed to find one truly amazing brand which works wonders! Although baking with yeast is time consuming, it requires very little effort otherwise and the results are deeply satisfying. These rolls are not very heavy and not very sweet, extremely fragrant and just perfect for midnight snacking.

Angie, this is my second entry to the Fiesta Friday Challenge #1!!


You will need:

  • Flour: 2 cups + 1 cup + for rolling
  • Milk: 1 cup + ¼ cup
  • Caster sugar: ½ cup + 1 tablespoon
  • Salt: 1 teaspoon
  • Butter (melted): 75 gms. + 4 tablespoons
  • Yeast: 1 teaspoon
  • Granulated sugar: 4 tablespoons
  • Dried cranberries: 100 gms.
  • Basil: ½ cup
  • Nutmeg (grated): ½ teaspoon

Dissolve the yeast in 1 cup of lukewarm milk and stir in 1 tablespoon of caster sugar. Let it stand for about 15 minutes or until frothy.

In a large mixing bowl, add 2 cups of flour, salt, 75 gms. butter and the yeast dissolved in milk and mix well with a wooden spoon. This will be a slightly wet mixture but that is fine. Cover with a damp cheesecloth and prove for at least 6 hours in a warm place.

After it has risen, add 1 cup of flour and ¼ cup milk and mix well to form dough (if it is still too sticky to roll, add some more flour, a tablespoon at a time and mix well – this amount worked for me though).

Sprinkle flour generously on a clean work surface and transfer the dough. Roll out into a rectangle of approximately 1 foot by 2 ½ feet.

With a pastry brush, brush the surface with 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Sprinkle the granulated sugar, nutmeg, basil leaves and cranberries.

Starting from the far end and working towards yourself, start rolling the dough as tightly as possible, into a long cylinder. (If you have a couple of extra hands to help you, that would be great!)

Slice the cylinder into 1 inch thick slices and place them on baking trays lined with butter paper.

Cover with a damp cheesecloth and let it prove in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Bake for 30 minutes at 150 degrees Celsius or until pale golden.

Makes about 24-32.

Note: Make sure to dust your rolling pin with flour to ensure that it does not stick.

Whole Wheat Rosemary & Garlic Bread – Fiesta Friday Challenge # 1

I decided to do the Fiesta Friday Challenge and I am super excited to be part of it. I have just been dying to participate and drool every weekend at the goodies that everyone brings along! I am pretty impressed with myself actually; I really didn’t think I would actually stop lazing around and do this!

So here goes! This is my first every contribution to Fiesta Friday (Challenge)! Just incredibly glad to join in on all the fun! Thanks Angie!



You will need:

  • Whole wheat flour: 3 cups + ½ cup
  • Plain flour: 1 cup
  • Water: 1 cup
  • Oil: ½ cup + more for greasing
  • Salt: 3/4 teaspoon
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs: 5
  • Garlic: 5- 6 cloves
  • Dried rosemary: 2 teaspoons
  • Dried oregano: 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
  • Milk (full fat or skimmed): 1 cup
  • Sugar: 1 teaspoon
  • Active dry yeast: 1 teaspoon


Using milk at room temperature (about 35 degrees Celsius), dissolve the yeast and sugar in the milk in a bowl and leave aside for 20 minutes until it is frothy.

Chop the garlic and the fresh rosemary and keep aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add 3 cups of whole wheat flour, plain flour, salt, chopped garlic and rosemary and mix.

Add the milk with the yeast, water and oil and mix using a wooden spoon. (It will be fairly sticky, do not panic.)

Transfer dough to a well-greased bowl and coat the top of the dough with oil as well, cover with a clean dish cloth and let it rise for 4 hours, or until the dough has doubled.

Sprinkle a work surface with the remaining ½ cup whole wheat flour, transfer the dough onto the surface and punch it down to 1 inch thickness.

Fold the dough into half and then half again, and roll it by hand to shape the dough into a loaf.

Gently transfer the shaped loaf to a well-greased loaf dish and prove for another 45 minutes, until doubled.

Grease the top of the loaf and sprinkle the dried rosemary and oregano on top of the loaf.

Bake for 40 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.

Remove from tin and leave in the oven for at least 2 hours to cool.

Slice and eat with loads of butter or dip into your favourite soup!

I have a short temper. Ugghh.

I met my husband in college, we still fight like kids. I fear we will never grow up.

My two sisters have spoilt me rotten as a kid. I loved it.
