In a hurry, why not cook up this simple and tasty Tomato Rice. Goes well with any yoghurt raita. more

A nutritious dal, especially with its combination of different lentils. A perfect accompaniment with plain rice. more

Another unusual dessert. This time with bread!. Never thought bread would taste so good, in a sweet dish other than bread and butter pudding! more

CHICKEN BEZULE

I remember bookmarking this recipe from Sadia’s blog savoryandsweetfood.com. Inspite of being a complete foodie and a regular visitor to Mangalore, this recipe was completely new to me. When I saw how easy it was to make, there was no way I was going to miss trying this one out! Though I have used chicken in this recipe, I am sure it will taste just as good with fish, and for those who are looking for a vegetarian option, why not try it with cauliflower?
