Beetroot Crisps

10 May

Helloo friends,

It’s been a while and feels good to be back .. I have an interesting recipe today. To be really honest, this was sort of an experiement. The other day, when I came back home after an evening walk, I got an idea to make something different out of what I bought that previous morning – beetroots. Now, normally I would make beetroot halwa (a dessert) anytime I buy these, but this time I thought why not make a snack out of these – and a spicy one at that 😉 .. Put a few things together, mixed and fried and the result is a yummy crispy snack. Hope you check it out and give it a try!

Pav Bhaji – Bhaji

29 Jul

Hello All !

Today I have one of ‘the most’ delicious fast foods from the streets of Mumbai, India !

This post has been sitting in my drafts for a while now and since it has started raining / drizzling in some of the places, I thought I would post this recipe, as this is ‘the perfect’ one for those kind of days ! 🙂

Pav Bhaji is such a mouth watering dish, I am sure anyone who has tasted it would agree with me !!

I miss the street foods back in India a lot .. and this made me try a few of those dishes at home with whatever stuff available here in the US .. Surprisingly when I made the Bhaji for the Pav the first time (I mixed recipes from and and my own variation) and it came out very well and so my recipe had to make it to HappieBelle, for all of you and of course for myself for future reference 😛 .. So, here we go !
