We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And we all know that one needs to ‘breakfast like a king’. But let’s be practical, shall we? Unless you have someone who will do a Mary Poppins and present a platter in front of you, it […]

Breakfast for those in a hurry

My earliest memory of carrots is watching Bugs Bunny on TV. Being a goat (Capricorn, by zodiac) I’ve always loved munching on raw veggies and carrots are right on top of the list. But when it comes to cooking with them, I’ve not taken to it as much as I […]

Going beyond carrot cake

January is a month of hope and everything new. There’s something about this month that holds a lot of promise. Maybe because it’s also birthday month for the husband and me! January is also that time of the year when Saturdays are devoted to making jam. Strawberries are in abundance […]

It’s jam-making time, again

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe here, so I thought this lazy Saturday afternoon is the perfect opportunity to get down to it. We are quite familiar with brownies. Who doesn’t love a warm, gooey piece with some vanilla ice cream on the side? But when you […]

What’s in that packet?

A taste of Bengal

Mangalorean chicken curry
After all the bingeing and festivities all you crave for is a bowl of something warm and comforting. In such cases, it is usually a bowl of dal-rice topped with some pickle or maybe some piping hot khichdi that does it for me. But if I’m in the mood for […]

If you follow me on my social media channels then by now you’d know that, Pinch of Salt has been shortlisted in two categories – Best Baking Blog & Best Recipe Blog – at the Indian Food Bloggers Awards 2015. Yay! If you want to show some more love then head […]

A twist and then some more
