My Goan Sausage story

I’ve spent all my childhood eating Goa sausages. Whether it was mum cooking it at home or looking for a small joint in the by lanes of Goa that served it. There’s just something about this meat dish that makes it so popular!
Reliving my childhood memories, I experimented with these deep red, flavoured sausage links and came about with two dishes.
Sharing the two recipes that are simple, quick and delicious indeed.

Mama’s Veal Chops with Stir Fried Veggies

It’s been almost 7 months since the #beefban is going quite strong in Maharashtra and I seem to be missing it a lot more these days. I come from a family where this is our staple meat so you can imagine exactly what I’m going through right now. So please don’t judge me. I’m not too fond of animals but that doesn’t mean I enjoy killing them. I’m just a regular girl who loves her meat way too much so give me a break? 2 more days to go home. YES. Only 2 days left and now all my cravings…

Going The Greek Way: Mama’s Moussaka

Today is one of those days when I feel super proud of myself and all that I’ve accomplished. It’s definitely not been an easy ride but I managed to complete a year. A year filled with so much excitement, learning and meeting new people. Happy Birthday ‘Yummy Inside My Tummy’ !! I’ve had such a blast this last one year and I thank all my dear readers and followers for encouraging to keep me going. Here’s a recipe which my mum learnt when she was my age and taught it to me. I thought it was the perfect recipe to…

Mother’s Day Special: Pork Vindaloo

Mothers. Mothers. Mothers. What can one do without them? We all have that someone who means the world to us. I’m not trying to be bias because it is ‘Mother’s Day’ and say she is that someone. I honestly don’t believe mothers need a so called special day. Everyday should be a day for them where they are pampered and feel appreciated. But my mother has taught me so much and I think I actually realized it all once I stepped out of my home two years ago. Where the kitchen is concerned, I truly enjoy to learn and watch…

#Meatless Mondays: Butter Garlic Broccoli Stir fry

Since I’m on a health food journey and trying my best to stay away from all that ‘heartattack’ food, I decided to try out the whole #MeatlessMondays campaign. Planning to continue it for the weeks to come but let’s see how it goes for now… Today, I came back from a run and a 90 minutes workout so decided to make something simple and quick but still it’s got to be yummy. Don’t worry, it’s very low on the calories too! Here’s the recipe:

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…

The Yum Tum Spag Bol!

Nothing like a bowl of Spag Bol on a cold rainy night! Spaghetti Bolognese is one of the most lovable dishes across the world and is a wholesome meal too. Known in Italian as ragù alla Bolognese which is basically a meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy… The sauce is the highlight of this dish! The earliest documented recipe of an Italian meat-based sauce known as ragù served with pasta comes from late 18th century Imola, near Bologna. In 1891, Pellegrino Artusi first published a recipe for a meat sauce characterized as being “bolognese”. While many traditional variations do exist,…
