Kiwifruit Mint And Cardamom Lassi - Cook Republic

Kiwifruit Mint And Cardamom Lassi

Lately, after discovering the immense health benefits of kiwi fruit, I have been trying to incorporate it more in my recipes. I am not a big fruit lover. Especially ones that need a bit of a peel or prep. I hate cutting and prepping fruit. I probably can assign that blame to mum who used to lovingly prepare gorgeous fruit platters with fruit cut up in lovely shapes thereby making us too lazy to cut it ourselves. But mid-life has brought many ... Read More >>
Sweet Strawberry And Rosewater Labneh Bowl - Cook Republic

Sweet Strawberry And Rosewater Labneh Bowl

Today I wanted to touch on a childhood memory, a fragment of my mind that seems to have faded because I shared it a long time ago on this blog and haven’t thought about it in years. When I was little, I used to take a bus to the station in my little home town of Thane. Often because of traffic jams and hordes of people selling their wares on the footpaths, the bus would come to a standstill a good few hundred meters from its destination. This... Read More >>
Chocolate Marble And Mayonnaise Celebration Cake With Dark Chocolate Ganache - Cook Republic

Chocolate Marble And Mayonnaise Celebration Cake With Dark Chocolate Ganache

I made a big mistake yesterday. The first in 11 years of blogging so I am hoping to forgive myself (and hope you do too!) but I am appalled nonetheless. Let me tell you what happened. I posted a spectacular layer cake recipe yesterday that I made for Rish's (younger boy) birthday in January. An amazing chocolate Star Wars cake that I said had mayonnaise in it. It didn't! It had a sticky chocolate cake for the top layer and orange chocolate ch... Read More >>

Roasted Broccoli And Coconut Salad With Turmeric Dressing

Do you remember the time as a kid when the most exciting part of your day was if your mum or dad allowed you to place a pillow on your chair and sit on it at the dinner table, instantly making you heaps taller (and unconquerable)? How special were simple days like that? Earlier today, I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down to type on my laptop at our dinner table. Because I am the shortest person I know, I hunched my shoulders in an attem... Read More >>

Yoghurt Granola And Honey Popsicles

When I made these gorgeous yoghurt, granola and honey popsicles for my Summer Food Photography And Styling Workshop last year and posted the picture on my Instagram, little did I know that it would become my most popular post with thousands of views and hundreds of emails and messages asking me for the recipe. Now, I have always made these ad-hoc, without a recipe and only using yoghurt as my blank canvas while painting a dish of vibrant colo... Read More >>

Apple Crumble Bircher With Macadamia Milk

Ever since I first tried almond milk, I have had problems with it intermittently. It is very random and has nothing to do with how fresh it is, although I have noticed that I will most definitely have a tummy upset if the almond milk is a day old. But then again on other days, I am absolutely fine. Walnut milk, macadamia milk and pistachio milk (my favourite, there is a lovely recipe in my book) cause no issues whatsoever. Have any of you fac... Read More >>
