Paratha and Halwa, Mahim Urs Festival, Mumbai

A night at the Urs

I didn’t want to go. I really didn’t want to go. But the partner-in-dine was adamant. ‘We’re going to the Urs,’ she said firmly and decisively. And I’m really glad I went. The 10-day annual Urs (festival) held at Mahim in honour of the saint Makhdoom Ali Mahimi […]

Corn Salad with dill and bacon

Easy Corn Salad

  I often make up recipes on the spot. As often I forget what I made and more importantly, especially when it comes out successfully, what I put into it. Fortunately, the partner-in-dine remembers, mostly, everything that I’ve cooked (and sometimes things I may or may not have said). And this Sunday afternoon, […]

Hamachi and Shrimp Nigiri, Saizen, Colaba low

The brainchild of Sanjay Narang, the hotel opened with two restaurants – a seafood restaurant Tides and […]

Sunrise on the greens

Sunrise on the Greens

About two months ago I decided I was going to cut out carbs from my meals as far as possible. I did that reasonably well by happily turning to red and processed meats and fruits. The only problem was that there wasn’t enough fibre in my diet: I […]

Baked Sea Bass with Yuzu Miso: roasted cauliflower mash pickled cucumber, bell pepper sauce, yuzu miso sauce

A unusual dinner at Tian, Delhi

I’d been looking forward to having a meal at Tian: Asian Cuisine Studio, at the ITC Maurya, New Delhi. Headed by chef Vikramjit Roy, its eclectic menu and its extensive use of molecular gastronomy techniques have made it the most talked-about Asian restaurant in the country. Last month, […]
