chickpea flour. The kadhi I have made is a basic kadhi. There are many varieties of kadhi and
I will be discussing each one of them in future posts.The main ingredient of kadhi is yogurt and
chickpea flour also known as 'besan' in India.Yogurt is very good for health as it contains calcium

4.We boil it in high flame for a minute stirring continuously so that lumps do not form.

5.Then reduce the flame and let it cook.We keep stirring it every five minutes.

6.You will observe that the mixture thickens so now we add water (a cup approximately)
   to maintain the consistency as that of any curry.Add water so as to attain the consistency
   you see in the following images.

7.We now add salt.After around 45min of cooking this mixture in medium flame our kadhi is done.

   Let the cumin seeds splutter then we add the sliced onions and cook until the onions are pink.

9.Then we add the chopped tomatoes.We fry until tomatoes are just a little soft.

10.We put this mixture of the pan into our kadhi and stir on medium flame for ten minutes.

Kadhi tastes best with rice.It tastes pretty well with hot parathas too.


1.Put salt towards the end so as to prevent curdling.
2.Stir the kadhi continuously as lumps may form.
3.Remember to maintain consistency as that of a curry.
4.Kadhi tastes even better the next day so you can refrigerate and keep it for the following day also.

Hi everyone!

My summer mornings start with chilled chocolate shake.Chocolate not only tastes heavenly, it gives instant energy too. It is said that drinking a cup of milk along with chocolate keeps us healthy and enhances our memory power! It also helps us against irritable mood swings. At the same time I would suggest that since it contains sugar we should not go overboard with it and also remember to exercise regularly.
This shake is super easy to make!


  • 1 cup Chilled milk (preboiled)
  • 2 spoons Chocolate powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar(optional)


1.In a mixer grinder take the milk, put sugar and chocolate powder and grind it for five minutes.We do this to create froth.
2.After this, pour the shake into a glass and sprinkle some chocolate powder on it.


1.Do not boil milk too much, it loses its nutrition.
2.Chocolate powder already contains sugar so you can skip using sugar.                            

                            Your simple and yummy chilled chocolate shake is ready!!!

Hi everybody! This is my very first blog post and l i am super excited! My passion lies in the world of cooking and  I would love to share my recipes with you.
The first recipe I am going to share with you is a family favourite, made by grand mother. 
Chilli chicken as we know is a speciality of the Chinese,but here I am giving it an indian touch.Hope you wonderful people like the recipe.

Serves :2-3


500 gms chicken (with or without bones)
2 onions sliced     (medium sized)
1 capsicum sliced (medium sized)
2-3 tbsp dark soya sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
3 green chillies
5 chunks of garlic (finely chopped)
ginger (slice 4-5 strips)
2 tsp cornflour
2tbsp tomato sauce
1/2 tbsp vinegar
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste


1. Heat oil in a pan and put the finely chopped garlic into it.When the garlic starts to change color add the onions and green chillies.
2.When you see the onions turn pink immediately put the chicken into the pan.Fry it on high flame for two minutes and then put it on medium flame.
3.Add the strips of ginger and salt to the chicken and just mix well.Cover with a lid and let the chicken cook.
4.On the other hand take a bowl. Put the dark soya sauce,sugar,tomato sauce,cornflour and little water (say 2tbspn) into the bowl and mix well.
5.Once the chicken is done, you can add the mixture which you have prepared in the bowl.
6.Now add the capsicum.
7.Let the chicken cook for ten to fifteen minutes.
8.Add the vinegar to the chicken and toss well.
9.Finally you can serve hot with fried rice.


1.Putting soya sauce towards the end is always better since its taste enhances.
2.Add less salt as soya sauce itself contains certain percentage of salt.
3.Always put ginger after the onions and garlic,the taste is better.
4.Do not overcook onions and capsicum.
5. I know so many people deep fry the chicken before making the curry of the chilli chicken. However from health perspective I refrain from doing so.

I hope you people try and enjoy this recipe. Please share your thoughts in the comments below!
