Punjabi Toast: Healthy Way To Protein, Carbs, Fibre

Its a rainy day and a quick, hot toast with coffee will be nice. What say, eh? Here is an Indian variation to the French Toast to keep you warm. Here’s how you can make a quick Punjabi Toast or as I call it Veg Egg Toast (quite contradictory that one is! But I like…

Chittorgarh: Asia’s Largest Fort

We head out of Pushkar, after bowing to the creator (as per Hindu mythology) – Bramha, being inquisitive about the white horse statute that adorned the centre of the temple compound and after having a typical Rajasthani lunch of Dal Bafley. As we hit the highway and I was settling down to boring visuals of the highway, I…

Egg Scramble: Quick Fix Food

Breakfast like a king , the dieticians advise.  But I get up just 45 minutes before I have to leave for office, what then? We got you covered. Something made of 2 eggs would definitely qualify for a king sized breakfast. Its quick fix and its sexy. Not to mention your protein intake is covered…

ISKCON, Bengaluru: The Sanctorum Is Worth The Maze

To not plan is the best plan ever I and Nethra had a plan like a week and a half back. Movie at Orion Mall, visit to ISKCON and the best Frankie in Malleshwaram. But the plan was going for a toss outside my window, when I looked at the to-do-list for Wednesday. Forget ISKCON which was…

Jaipur: The Pink Marvel City

Ideally we are here for the Jaipur Literature Festival. But we are allowed to bunk, right? What else do you expect with a wanderlust impacted person (my brother) as a co-traveller 😀 We had driven in from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh and bunked the opening of the literature festival to explore Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort, which were around…

Vermicelli Upma: Healthy & Easy

One of my favourite breakfast’s these days and all the days, since I started working out 2 years back . Vermicelli Upma is not something I have a childhood memory of. Mom never made it. The only thing that mom made of vermicelli was what we called Seymia Payasam(Vermicelli Pudding). So I do take the credit of…

Wonder Mix: A Healthier Brunch

Who doesn’t want to look sexy in that one piece. Or panache in that awesome waist coat. But a paunch, however little, will marr the look completely. The age old mantra to stay fit, which even modern nutritionists swear by, is eat small and eat every two hours. The idea is to keep your internal…

Defeating Death For A Day, Just For That One Chat

If you could bring back someone from the other side of the rainbow bridge for just one day, would you do that? I thought long at this question. Would I? I am not an overtly emotional person. The practical tag suits me more than emotional but I guess I would bring someone back from the…

The Internet Can Mess Up Your Travel Plans

It was our first vacation together – RV and mine. That is the husband, by the way. Also, individually as well as as a couple this was to be our first International trip. And the ever helpful Internet nearly wreaked it. That is right…it did! Internet research though largely helpful is a dangerous swamp to wade…

What Will Break If a Widow Eats That Forbidden Food?

Last week we, the mister and the missus, went mart hopping and landed in HyperCity. Being the foodie that he is and lover of exotica, the mister had his eyes of banana flowers. Though he had his doubts about – isn’t it too much work to cut these? I reminded him, we have a house…
