It is rare that an Indian home will serve a meal without accompanying a lentil dish, referred to as daal. It is a ready source of protein for a balanced diet.

It can be eaten alone as a hot soup, or piled on rice, with some salad and vegetable dish on the side to make it a complete meal.
Goa with its vast coastline is known for its plethora of seafood preparation which has influenced the food habits of the region. Fresh fish is aplenty so it is cooked frequently in every Goan home and enjoyed with rice, fried fish, and a vegetable. We had our first taste of this curry during our visit to Goa. It was sitting in the back of mind since then, so I knew I had to make it.
Goan fish curry is great for weekday meal as it doesn’t take a lot of prep or cook time and yet, it turns out as one of those special meals.

Poached Pears is one of the simplest of desserts but also the most delicious. You can prepare it ahead of time and serve warm or chilled when you are ready.

And the best part is, there is no added sugar in my recipe, and trust me that it will not be missed at all.
Daal is a total comfort food for me, something I grew up with. The recipe I am sharing today is the one that I make on a weekly basis.

While simple roasted squash wedges with olive oil, salt, and pepper are delicious on their own, the addition of lemon, honey, chili, and the aromatic spices really turns up the flavor.

The cutups are excellent in salads or pasta dishes.
Let me introduce you today to a simple, but a highly flavorful side dish. Aloo methi is a classic combination cooked all over North India but the cooking technique and some of the spices slightly vary from one family to another.

It's homely, delicious and quite a vegetarian delight for Punjabis.

Eating great things while traveling is a huge pleasure for me. I am constantly getting asked what gluten-free foods I eat while traveling to my home country India, so I set out to write a post.

However, the truth is that in the excitement of eating all the delicious food, I forgot to take enough pictures.
