Glazed chicken with rice and salad !

19 May

Here it comes, my first ever non vegetarian dish!!! Invented by taking inspiration from glazed chicken recipes but the glaze and the serving combination are the things I like.

Lets start with the chicken : 

The chicken was put aside with a coating of ginger garlic paste and chilli sauce for 5 minutes before frying.

It is fried on a pan with olive oil. Make sure to heat the pan well enough before frying them.


The glaze :

I invented this according to the taste I’d like –

So in a heated pan, fry some onions in olive oil, add orange juice and sugar

A bit of water can be added if the mix is becoming too thick

Add  tomato and chilli sauce, red chilli powder and some salt

A bit of lemon juice will also do the trick but keep it to a minimum

Once the orange juice is thick, we’re good to go

The salad :


This is the fun part of the dish, apart from the chicken :p Its a fresh and tangy salad stir fried in a pan with olive oil so that it doesn’t taste too raw and the ingredients blend in together :


Mint leaves

Green mango

Cherry tomatoes


Final plating : 

Egg n Mushroom fried rice

19 May



Just fry up rice with onions, eggs, mushrooms and red chillies. done! 🙂

Fried garlic mushrooms!

19 May


Shrooms are great 😉 They don’t need much preparation and still taste great. Im going to be honest, even raw mushroom tastes as good as cooked ones.

For this dish I followed the simple principle of frying the mushrooms up with onions, green chilli, ginger garlic paste, lots of chopped garlic and red chilli powder. dish done!

Here’s one recipe that might not be very ‘lazy cook’ friendly but is worth the effort. Simple rice dish one should always try.

Ingredients :



chopped onions, garlic

cherry tomatoes

chopped capsicum

coriander powder

tomato ketchup

chilli sauce


oil (refined or olive)

Heat oil in pressure cooker. Fry chopped onions and garlic. When brown, add capsicum and potatoes.Now add the flavoring agents – salt, chilli sauce, coriander powder, tomato ketchup.Add rice and fry for a minute. Add cherry tomatoes.Add double the amount of water as the rice and seal the pressure cooker with lid. Let it whistle once before you switch it off and wait till all the steam has escaped. Ta da!

Egg sandwich

25 Mar



How fast you can make this dish depends on the speed at which you can crack open an egg plus the speed at which you can break cheese into small pieces. If you’re good with that, you get something filling to eat in less than 2 minutes. 

Ingredients : 



ginger garlic paste



white bread

tomato ketchup (if you’re a fan like me) 


On the same heated pan toast bread on one side and fry the egg (obviously to save time). The egg has been mixed with ginger garlic paste and a bit of salt already. Put small pieces of cheese over the eggs and let them melt. Take these off from the pan. Coat one layer of bread with mayonnaise and put the eggs on the other. Top with ketchup.
