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…

Onion Fritters

Onion Fritters by Yamini Vasudevan

it is said that the first six years of your life are the most important – when everything that happens around you leaves an impression on you. i am sure food falls into that category as well. i have long-standing loves that have their roots in fond childhood memories. and as you might have guessed, these fritters fall into this…

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…

Orange Blueberry Muffins

Orange Blueberry Muffins by Yamini Vasudevan

the best way to find out? i had to make some.recently, i picked up some blueberries from the store, and planned to make muffins with them - only this time round, i decided i would make a healthy version. i had read somewhere that citrus flavours complement blueberries well, and picked oranges as be my choice of flavouring. i drew…

Home-made Pasta Sauce

Home-made Pasta Sauce by Yamini Vasudevan

in the not-so-distant past, i was hit by a pasta craving and decided that i would make myself some spaghetti. when i checked my bottle of pasta sauce, i realised that it was past its expiry date. as i pencilled in pasta sauce into my grocery list, the thought struck me that i could try making some myself. i did some research online…

Cottage Cheese-stuffed Baked Portobello Mushrooms

Cottage Cheese-stuffed Baked Portobello Mushrooms by Yamini Vasudevan

when i started making these mushrooms, i was a bit nervous. you see, this was not exactly my first attempt at making stuffed mushrooms. past attempts, which involved white button mushrooms, usually ended up in a soggy mess that didn’t really measure up to taste as well. so i got frustrated and shelved the thought of stuffed mushrooms…

Chocolate Cake with Cherry Filling and Smooth Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate Cake with Cherry Filling and Smooth Chocolate Frosting by Yamini Vasudevan

think chocolate cake and cherries – and the first image that probably springs to mind is a black forest cake. and that was what i had actually set out to make. using a time-tested recipe for chocolate cake from The Joy of Vegan Baking (which i had…

Pancakes by Yamini Vasudevan

mention the word “pancakes” and the image that comes to my mind is of breakfast on a beautiful weekend morning with hot pancakes and maple syrup, freshly brewed coffee and a leisurely flick through the day’s paper. i think pancakes were invented so that people could have leisurely weekend breakfasts. i haven’t had pancakes in a while,…

Cake Truffles

Cake Truffles by Yamini Vasudevan

i have been wanting to make cake truffles (aka cake balls/cake bon bons) for ages now. i saw them for the first time as Christmas Truffles at Exclusively Food and then subsequently as uber-cute cake pops in Bakerella’s website. and boy are they tempting! little (or not so little) bites of cake and frosting that are coated in chocolate…

Spicy Okra

Spicy Okra by Yamini Vasudevan

okra, also known as ladies finger/bhendi/vendaikkai, was a popular choice of vegetable in my house. i personally liked it, so i had no problems. but if any of my cousins did raise a protest, they were cajoled into eating it with the argument that it would help sharpen our brains - especially our math abilities. i personally didn’t see…
