Bread Pudding

It’s the holidays. Please throw all your fancy diets out of the window. Before I start off with my Christmas inspired recipes, here’s a little something I had to indulge in after being away from home for a month.
It’s rich, sweet and nutty! Just the kind you need to start off this joyous season.
Do try out my Bread Pudding recipe and would love to know how you make yours!

St Patrick’s Day Special

It’s that time of the year when you’d see parades, dancing, good food and everything around you being green in Ireland.

Chef Riya’s Twist of Taste

I am truly in love with Vikas Khanna. I just admire the way he cooks on national television. He is such a humble chef! They say the world is your oyster. Well I say, food is mine. There is so much one can do with it. And he has definitely helped me believe that! I remember very clearly. It was a Saturday night sometime last year and I was getting too bored. I felt like having pasta but not the boring, classic mac and cheese. (not that I hate it) When you are independent, your brain tends to be more…

Have a bite?

Everyone loves sandwiches. They are the best thing to turn to after a week of crazy eating. Simple and Light is what makes them so special! This is a really simple Tomato and Ham Sandwich.
