Gulab Jamun

Gulab jamun is an indian dessert. It is basically a fried doughnut that has been soaked in sugar water. It starts out as a fairly small fried ball, and then expands to about 3 times it’s original size, chock-full of sugar water. YUM. Can you say heart attack? It’s not as bad as jalebi. This… Continue reading Gulab Jamun

Lamb Biryani and Raita

In the past, when I have a dinner party, I have a tendency to over-cater. I almost always regret it. Over the last 10 years, I have come to realise that the overwhelming amount of food does tend to put people off, and that’s why I am left with so much leftovers. So for this… Continue reading Lamb Biryani and Raita

Palak Paneer

Our Deepavali Dinner guests loved this dish!

It is not an Indian dish, but I chose to make it because it was not… Continue reading Gobi Manchurian (Cauliflower)

This time, I was careful not to over-cater, I am proud to say, I made just enough food for everyone!… Continue reading Fish Cutlets

RAKU, Civic

The hubby and I had a date at Floriade’s Nightfest recently, so we decided to go all out and tack on dinner at RAKU as well. Live and let live, right? RAKU only opened on 21 Sept 2017, so I was chomping at the bit to give it a go, given our fantastic experiences in… Continue reading RAKU, Civic

Lemon Lime Cheesecake

I love cheesecake, particularly no bake cheesecake. It just tastes so smooth and creamy, it has a kind of mouth-feel that you just don’t get with a baked cheesecake. So here is the recipe for my no-bake lemon lime cheesecake, everyone at the office can’t stop raving about it 🙂 Something to think about is… Continue reading Lemon Lime Cheesecake
