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 >>
Blackberry Overnight Oats - Cook Republic

Blackberry Overnight Oats

Every summer our blackberry vine creeps a bit further and grows more tendrils that become robust branches heaving with juicy black fruit at the peak of the season. It is amazing how many berries you can stuff in your mouth when you are picking them off the vines. As a result, I am never left over with any blackberries to freeze. Luckily, our local supermarket stocks an organic brand of frozen blackberries which is a key fixture in my freezer ... Read More >>

Paneer Chilli And Charred Corn Fritters

It's back to school and one of the highlights of my day is to fix a super quick, super delicious and nourishing after school snack in my 3pm coffee break. The older boy catches a train and bus back from high school while the younger one either catches the bus or walks home. By the time they get home, they are ravenous. The mid-day lunch is history after nearly a hour playing soccer or walking around. My boys love a hot savoury snack and it re... 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 >>

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 >>
