Cake & Custard Pudding

Cake & Custard Pudding by Yamini Vasudevan

Almond Biscotti

Almond Biscotti by Yamini Vasudevan

its been a while since i last updated on this blog – and i have a very good reason for the long break. for the past couple of weeks, i haven’t been able to get any good clicks on my trusty 5-year-old digital camera. maybe its just me, but whatever i snap just doesn’t turn out well. and given just how important the visual element for…

Oatmeal, Raisin and Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Oatmeal, Raisin and Chocolate-Chip Cookies by Yamini Vasudevan

what is it about oatmeal-raisin cookies that spells instant comfort? i can’t say – and i have spent a good 10 minutes writing and erasing words trying to convey my feelings. but then again, if you like oatmeal-raisin cookies, you probably don’t need me to convince you about why they are so enticing but apart from their crispy-chewy…

Mushrooms in Coconut Milk Curry

Mushrooms in Coconut Milk Curry by Yamini Vasudevan

i should probably call this post “the nearly forgotten one” – given that i wrote down the recipe ages ago, but forgot to post it. i first tasted this curry some months back - my mum had made it for dinner when i had a friend over. it was a nice change from the paneer and mixed-vegetable options that i usually resort to when i cook for…
