Chocolate Coffee Chicory Brownies

If chocolate is my favourite flavour when it comes to dessert, the combination of chocolate and coffee is a close second. Fond memories of this flavour combination include a beautiful Chocolate Coffee cake at the old German bakery near the Osho Ashram in Pune.

Ohn no khao swè (khowsuey)

My first memory of having khowsuey is at a restaurant called Pot Pourri in Bandra, in Bombay. The description of the dish had intrigued me and many of the flavours were similar to Indian cuisine.

Bharli Karli (Stuffed bitter gourd)

I know I probably lost most of you at bitter gourd, and yes there is some bitterness when you eat these, but trust me this dish actually tastes really good. Since cooking and eating at home is the new normal, and will probably stay like that for a while, on every trip to the wet […]

Macaroni and Cheese

The term comfort food seems to cover all manner of sins, and if someone asked me to name a comfort food – I’d probably instinctively reach for something I grew up eating, like aloo posto – a dish sadly inaccessible to us in Singapore due to the lack of that magical ingredient posto (poppy seeds).
