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…

Monsoon Specials: Wings-Oh-Yum

Sitting by the window sill, staring out and watching the raindrops as they fall with force to the ground only makes me more hungry. Next thing I know, I find myself in the kitchen experimenting with all the possible sauces I could find and voila…Wings-Oh-Yum came to life! These #MumbaiRains can really get you depressed and the only thing that makes me happy is good, comforting food. Why would I call ‘Buffalo wings’ as the perfect monsoon dish when you hear of people eating butta, pakodas and vada pavs? Well, because I like to be an outcast and dig into…

I thought it was the perfect recipe to…

I opened my fridge and used all the possible sauces I could find. That’s how I ended up with this cracked up meal of mine. I call it The Yum Tum Special Steaks With Herb-Crusted Potatoes And Dip It’s a simple, quick recipe that serves as a…

How about a chop?

There’s nothing one cannot like about pork chops. They are tender, juicy and tasty pieces of meat. But they can also be a disaster if you don’t get the right cuts and flavours in. Here’s my 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…
