Simple Meat Balls

I was in a hurry and had no time for frying meatballs, so decided to baked them, while I prepared the salad. These were just as tasty that I doubt I will return to frying meatballs. I add whatever leftovers are in the fridge to my ground beef. It is noteworthy that our family gets our grass-fed beef from Big Bear Ranch. We know them very well, a  family-operated farm in the Cariboo Region in […]

Mince Meat

Simple Mince Meat

Where is Mangalore? It is on the South West coast of India where I spent every single summer of my childhood. My father’s family comes from that city. Summers spent eating every variety of mangoes, guavas & coconuts from our garden. Food made on a wood burning stove & spices ground on a huge mortar-pestle by hand. We also had pepper vines in our garden… great for making masalas! This garden had a huge influence on what […]

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

At my last Holiday Craft Fair the Chicken Tikka/ Butter Chicken  masala was a hit. I have a recipe for the Tikka on this blog and promised all there would be one for the Butter Chicken. Again my cousin Karen in London, helped me out with this recipe. I found this fairly quick and made this meal during my busiest work week as it happened to be my husband’s birthday. Had to make a ‘Bada […]

Chicken-Tikka

Best Chicken Tikka

Back home in India, we never cooked Chicken Tikka at home, just went out to eat it! In the past, I was often asked if I can make this dish and so I asked my international family for help! My Cousin Karen lives in London and has been cooking this incredible Chicken Tikka for a long time. Living in London, she knows exactly what this dish should taste like. We love exchanging and trying different […]

Chicken Roast

Tandoori Roast Chicken – Indian Style

Ever since I made my new Tandoori Marinade, I cannot stop using it on everything. Roasts, kebabs, vegetables. The stuffing is my grandmother’s recipe, it’s the best part of course. Great for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any of the Holidays. When I make it, I fry the bread for the stuffing in bacon fat ;-D My Mangalore Curry (Pepper based masala), is a spice you MUST have in your kitchen. No dish for me is complete without […]

Biryani

Biryani – Indian Layered Rice

I was recently invited to our friend Steve’s Birthday Party & decided this occasion was a perfect time to figure out how to make Biryani from scratch using some of the organic dry roasted spices I have created rather than generic store-bought spices. I cannot eat very spicy food so this recipe is for a milder Biryani. Add more curry powder or chili powder for a spicier dish. My Aunt Diana, an ACE cook (President […]

Llonch- Vidalle Family enjoying my Coconut curry in Argentina.

Coconut Curry

As a child, I was a very picky eater. However, I LOVED coconut curry, mainly so that I could drink the gravy. This recipe below is my husband’s favourite curry and the one I make most of the time. I much prefer using fresh coconut to desiccated coconut for this dish. I made this dish for our good friends in Argentina when travelling there. Below is picture of them enjoying this dish with all the […]
