I started writing this post with “Once upon a time, there were two very close friends- Auspicious occasion and Kheer. So much so that one never went anywhere without the other.” Then I stopped and realized that I am reading too much fiction these days. Anyways, you get my point. No occasion in north India is complete without Kheer. It is one of the most original and ancient Indian dessert. Also one of the most delicious too.

I am struggling these days to get back into the routine of blogging. There is so much going on and it just seems easier to not post sometimes and crash on a bed at the end of the day. That’s what I have been doing since the move. Finally, am finding my rhythm again. Just yesterday, I used my oven for the first time.

If you are one of those, I bow down to you! I am definitely not in your league. There are sweets and then there are ‘sweets‘. Gulab Jamun falls in the latter category. I haven’t met one person who dislikes them and honestly, what’s not to like in them?
Even the worst gulab jamun beats a lot of good sweets hands down on any day! Yeah, am a self proclaimed gulab jamun fan! [Read on…]
I knew it! I just knew it! I knew that once I go the rajasthani cuisine route, I would be unstoppable. That’s why I restrained myself from posting any rajasthani recipes up until now. Now that I have done it, my brain is coming up with all sorts of excuses to post every rajasthani dish possible. Darn you, inner voice! So much for a diverse blog! Control your horses woman, there will be time for each and every one of them.
So keeping my promise that I made to myself, here is a very popular sabji from the Sun City of Rajasthan, Jodhpur. [Read on…]
