Stuffed Chilli (gram flour stuffing)

Let’s start the week the zinged-up way with these flavourful stuffed chillies (the bajji chilli) that can be eaten stand-alone or with breads of choice (chapati, paratha etc.). These are loved a lot at home and not at all chili hot, as the name might suggest. Ingredients: 250 gm fresh India thick chilli (bajji) 1…

Break&Binge is officially one today – 245 posts, 365 days, a family of nearly 5,000 of you and most importantly your immense love, support and feedback has brought us till here. From one lockdown to another (we wish, this didn’t remain constant), we have come a long way while learning (and still continue to) various…

Classic Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is all one could want – nutritious, flavourful, vegetable-loaded, healthy, satisfying, quick to make and above all soothing. Traditionally, it has been made as an Italian soup to use the leftover vegetables and the choices are many to use the vegetables of liking. This is one of my personal favourite and regular at…

Mango Mastani (Thick Mango Shake loaded with Ice-cream)

This dessert has its origins from Pune (India) with apparently the name associated with one of the Indian royal warriors Bajirao Peshwa’s wife Mastani who was known to be super beautiful – probably also the reason behind naming this dessert drink Mango Mastani. Mango Mastani is a thick mango milkshake (especially made from #alphonso mango)…

No Sugar Mango Date Kheer (Pudding)

Excited about trying a fully sugar-free mango dessert? We love mangoes and cannot afford to not focus on healthy eating too. This experiment of Mango Date Kheer – full of taste, mango goodness, crunchy dry fruits and without any added sugar – just served us right! The extra sweetness of fully riped alphonsos took the taste to…

Mango Ricotta Cheese Parfait

While there is nothing additional needed to enjoy the taste of that heavenly bite of a super sweet and juicy alphonso mango, the beauty of this king of fruits only enhances when turned into an exotic dessert like a parfait. Of course the health-consciousness in us wants to make it healthier while keeping it yummier….

Mango Shrikhand or Mango Yogurt Pudding or Amrakhand

Kickstarting the #mangomania #2021 at @breakandbinge – if you have been following us since last year at the start of this journey, you would have seen our immense love for mangoes, esp the Indian alphonso mangoes! And we just couldn’t wait to bring back and share this love with you, well why not and well…

Kadhi-Meethi Thuli (Yogurt curry soup with sweet porridge)

Regional delicacies are not just the best way to be reminded of the regional culture, but also serve you some of the best of tastes! One such delicacy from the state of Rajasthan and something that has been a regular in my household has been Kadhi-meetha daliya aka meethi thuli (Yogurt based curry soup with…

Idli (with homemade batter)

It couldn’t have been more coincidental that we actually celebrated the #worldidliday with our #idli #sambhar breakfast yesterday! One of the most loved meals across age groups and across most of #Indiansubcontinent, Idli-sambhar has to be a common binding factor (idli is savoury steamed rice pancake). Often a meal that kids eat without any tantrums…

Carrot Soup

If life were only full of soups and salads, what would be your go-to soup to have everyday? The current flavor I am hooked on to is carrot soup, something I could savour everyday. Absolutely flavourful, healthy and can be tweaked with many flavourful variants like basil, ginger, garlic, nuts of choice etc. With colourful…
