Hi friends. Hope you all doing good. We are doing more than fine specially because of this post.
We always try sharing best of recipes and all . But before we share we get to eat them till last bite while working hard in our kitchen. Well that’s our fruit for hard work. But honestly there’s no doubt about how much we love eating but the happiness doubles after sharing it with you all. Cooking and baking both are all about experimenting and we oh so love it, specially when the end result is soooo yummy that it leaves you satiated. Also it is way above satisfaction when your loved ones are bowled over by your culinary creations 🙂
How many of you like marmalade. Well I am assuming most of us because Sakshi n I oh so love it. Be it in breakfast with bread or as kids like it topped on paranthas. Oh and we love it the most in our cake . Yessss marmalade cake. You heard us right. It always comes out clean and yummylicious.

NOTE – This goes great with almond flakes. You can add almonds as told in the procedure OR if you wish the almonds to show up on your cake put them after half time. Once you see the cake has risen to a good level open the oven and quickly spread the almonds over the cake. But make sure you do not take too long in the process.

This easy and delicious cake is always a hit. Away from usual chocolate, this is light fluffy n moist. Goes superb at you tea time invites or otherwise. Try it for sure because we bet you will love it .

Keep Baking  🙂

Review: Delhi Club House

Hi friends. The winters finally seem to hit Delhi. Though yet not so strongly but we are happy to get some warm clothes out at last. Oh God ! This weather calls for some food. Our life revolves around just food food and food. What to do. We are born to eat and have to keep up to our name: Miss foodies 😉

So as we talked of the sangam courtyard which has come up again quiet well, we continue to do so today as well. We are actually enjoying visiting this side more as we believe somewhere it is still away from all the crowd. Its getting talked about but thankfully not getting as crowded for now and we wish it remains the same.

6

So we introduce you people to Delhi club House today. This one is yet again by none other than Marut Sikka. It is in the lime light for this very own reason. After success of his previous food magic places he seems to be playing quiet well yet again. Comfort food with dallops of nostalgia in an ambience inspired by look of grand old club with colonial roots is a complete win win. The good choice of music helps enhancing your experience.

7

What we had: The menu is limited but quiet interesting with some great food. As winters hitting, specially the chilly evenings made us order some hot tomato and red pepper soup. Its surely creamy but satiating and as the name suggests the pepper surely hits your throat. We loved it.

9

Then came the rawa cutlet (Madras club). The menu is actually interesting with the highlights of variations. These were warm and crunchy served with coconut and red chutney. The tinch of rye (indian spice) adds to the flavour.

8

Then came the yam galouti kebab. Simply rich and delicious melting in the mouth. Must order for a happy palate. Then we ordered the veg kakori (Mahomed bagh club) These mini ones with white sesame on the outside are soft inside.

10

11

For the mains we ordered Khorma biryani from Nizam club. It was as satiating as it looks. We relished it thoroughly. Along came the Amritsari kulcha, channa (Amritsar Club). This was divine too. Hot and spiced channas were too good to resist.

12

Do we recommend : yes absolutely. The place has great atmosphere with club classic food specially for a weekend dinner. The place is lively with great music. The prices are decent for the portions and satiating meals. If you dine in late you will surely enjoy moving yourself a bit with the music and lively ambience. The service may take little while but you can always enjoy chatting until then. The limited menu may make you think of visiting again but we feel theres still something about the place for we are surely visiting back soon.

Review: the fatty bao

Hi foodie friends. How you all doing. This time the festive season has kept us really really busy. Sakshi is going nuts with our two cute nut bags full of joy. And I am of couse with nut bags not leaving a single chance to trouble her. Trying new food and reviewing is always on our to do list. Though I am trying to keep away just little bit from my sweet tooth and unhealthy eating habbits as  wedding bells ringing in our family this Christmas. Leaving space for the amazing and yummilicious wedding food. Haha.

All our Delhi friends and the ones visiting Delhi ,this ones for you all. The Sangam courtyard ,has been known for its sangam movie hall has come around pretty well. The movie hall itself got this new and clean look that we have already enjoyed couple of movies out there. But this complex has much more to offer now in terms of food. Quite a number of restaurants have opened up,few being chains of restaurants  already around Delhi and few are young and new. So as you must have guessed we are here to share our take on one amongst the new ones called The fatty bao.

This much visited and quiet talked about place in town needs to be savoured and enjoyed. The cheerful ambience at the fourth floor, roof top with the Chinese décor has something about it. The catchy part about the ambience is their use of cute pretty decorations and lighting. The panda painted wall with fancy  butterflies and grasshoppers decorated on the lights are different from usual but at the same time nice and lively. The seats by the window are our favourite places to tingle our taste buds.

2

Coming down to What we had: Their closed buns- Shengjian Bao, filled with spicy cottage cheese and spring onion are simply to die for. Your feel great biting these little savoury and steamy  buns. They are a must have. We remember calling these four times as one portion consists of only four. If you are a big foodie like us you wont mind having a plate alone 😉 These baos stand up to the their name.

1

Then came their chilli little potatoes. If you are a potato lover , I bet not bigger than Sakshi though 😉 you will love these. These mini meal mini potatoes are well balanced with the spices. With little on spicier side they are a win win too. Then we ordered are favourite things to eat out.

3

Minced vegetable and water chestnut Dimsums. Nice and light ,they are good to go. Then what struck us in the menu was Gyoza, filled with spinach,bok choy and corn are the only option for vegetarian but tasteful and healthy.

4

Being sushi lovers we called for their rainbow vegetable roll. This is a must have. On our visit with family my Dad in law specially liked the sushi and mentioned that it is good to see more of vegetables than rice unlike at other places. This colourful platter can surely keep your eyes and palate happy.

Then come their open Bows. Amongst veg options the one those stood out for us were the ones with eggplant. Though fried but flavourful. After all this we couldn’t resist from ordering the Red Thai curry. Its as tempting as it looks 🙂

5

Do we recommend– Yes we do. A little pricey but good food and ambience will surely make up for it and leave you satiating. The veg options are limited comparatively but nicer and tastier veggie friends. So don’t worry and go chill with your friends and family.

Review: Cha-Shi

How many times have you been out on random plans with your bestie? Specially then, when she is on a roller coaster ride with two few months old naughty boys. She has been striving hard to get out of the house and so are you as already your bestie time is now divided for all the good reasons. The restlessness of the two after a lot of discussion eventually was executed into a plan. The mission was to shop for her as she was in deep need of change of wardrobe, more of talking out the calories and less of eating. Mind the words. Read between the lines. After rambling , dawdling and literally voyaging, the weary two landed in middle of mirthful and gleeful ambiance. The ambiance they have always loved and to bite in their favorite culinary art. They settled comfortably for a quick bite. Quick because the art is always pricey and girls are very calculative. After the most awaited munch which was swiped from the plate in two minutes, the real selves were on to play. The real tittle-tattle began along with falsification for the small portion offered. Well that’s the Art right. But as the mood was animated they dint bother about anything and the culinary art was repeated along with some acerbic and appetizing meal. The delectable meal along with tittle-tattle just dint seemed to be ending until the portions were swiped off leaving the platters as bare as they ever were and rest is all history with a glimpse of culinary art below :

4-tile

What we had: Starting from the first left pic. Water chestnut and corm dim sums. They are done amazingly well. What we love the most is their outer covering which is so thin. The filling of course as the name suggests makes them a must order. Their chili sauce is amazing too. The only problem is the portion size. They serve you four little bites which do not leave you satiating. Because they are so delicious you have to order more. Next came our Zucchini tomato and cucumber Sushi. It is done pretty well and a delight for sushi lovers. The ginger tops it well. Stir fried asian vegetables to go with their yummy tom yum fried rice crackers. This combo makes a wholesome meal with goodness of vegetables but also keeping the spices and flavor intact. But I guess we both were still not done. And because Sakshi finds her meal incomplete without noodles we also called for stir fried vegetable noodles. Oh and how can I forgot my love for drinks. The water melon juice is hands down a refreshing delight.

Talking of Ambiance, the best thing about this place is the open space seating in midst of the mall. Considering that they are situated in Emporio which is still not over crowded.. it does give a decent amount of privacy and does not get too intruding also while you’re eating. Good food with lively surroundings and catching up besties gossip cannot get better than this. Service is good and staff is on their toes to make you happy with some awesome food and good presentation.

Do we recommend: Of course yes. As we mentioned the food is pricey but worth every bite. Yes you may not be happy with the portions size but you will surely be left satiating until the last bite.

Mango Sorbet

21st-Birthday-2

I cant keep calm because its my 21st Birthday. Yay!!! Sakshi no me digas(don’t tell me)…. Que dices! (what are you saying) Lol….Huh Parul you and your Spanish. Though I wish it was mine.

Haha I wish the same Sakshi but lets come back to reality. And ya Spanish …. Was just busy revising my current topics. How to express disagreement, lol. Anyways then you all must be wondering whose birthday it is actually. Friends its my sweet little sisters Birthday 🙂 Her excitement has taken us down the memory lane. And because we had this interesting post to share with you all, thought what better day than today. Surprising her and adding on to her sweet memories on this very day. Though it’s an offence ,well almost, to share a girls age but I guess she is in her perfect young years so hoping she would love this 🙂 Here’s wishing you a Big Happy Birthday sweetie and many more fun filled years to come.

Foodie friends as you can see, what we have on our menu today is refreshing Mango sorbet. Yesssss….The king of fruits and summers is back. And back with a bang…. This Mango Sorbet is just awesome and perfect for this summer season. We are a big fan of fresh fruit and so prefer fresh fruits over fruit based desserts any day. It’s also because the fruit based desserts do not do full justice to the taste , like not being overwhelming enough to compromise over fresh fruit. But we love this one. Its easy, its absolutely fresh, has no preservative or artificial flavour. Its awesomeness. Can be easily made at home and will leave you satiated till last bit .

This sorbet changes everything. In fact, making sorbet is just about the easiest thing ever. With minimal ingredients, this one is to die for. No cooking required, ready in some time, and so inexpensive. Friends when we say in expensive we mean it. We know sorbet are very easy to make if you have an ice cream maker . No matter how common ice cream makers may be but we have our doubts when it comes to our everyday kitchens. Along with extra expenditure it may land up occupying good amount of space in one’s kitchen. And because we believe in easy and hassle free cooking, we have made it easy for you. To top it all why be away from yummy desserts just because there is no ice cream maker. So friends let’s get started. You are just few steps away from beating these scorching summers 😉

Now isnt thatsuper easy. The only difficult part to sorbet making, as we found out is to have the patience to wait until th bowl is cold enough. After that its just a bit of whizzing and churning, and Voila 😉 This helps in getting you to the end result which is creamy-cool, rich and smooth Mango Sorbet.

For presentation just let your imagination flow and surprise your guests with this chilled and refreshing dessert this summers. Don’t just sit back. Go pull out mangoes from your fridge and start making, while we go and party with Aashna as WE JUST CANT KEEP CALM BECAUSE ITS HER 21ST BIRTHDAY 🙂 🙂 🙂

But all this while I was wondering what is Sakshi going to do when the two naughty boys wont listen to her at once. I got the solution for that too. Aunt Parul that is of course me is going to make them meet their girl friend 😉 and I bet they just won’t go anywhere. Well well well I am surely going to spoil them and rest leave on Sakshi to take care of. Am I going to be dead or am I going to be dead once this post goes live.

7

But no worries if Sakshi gets too mad at me for spoiling them, I will spoil them even more and teach them the secret Sandwich recipe to present to their Mom. Here it comes 😉 😉 😉

Foodie friends hope you all finding this interesting. For kids you got to be kids too. I am sure you all will agree. Though I am not talking out of experience yet but I am sure the two naughty bundles will help me gain some. Coming to the recipe. It’s very easy because major effort would be needed in the presentation. That too is quiet easy if you love exploring just like we do. So get yourself started to make your naughty bundles eat healthy in just the form they like. Here we go:
