Herbs and Cheese Muffins

Muffin is a form of bread but looked like a cupcake. Muffins can be sweet or savory. Herbs and cheese muffins are great savoury muffins that can be served in breakfast. You can use any herb of your choice to make this muffin and adding cheese makes it absolutely delicious.

I am a kind of person who loves to make simple recipes with simple ingredients. You can check my blog, there is not a single complicated recipe.  I don't try any recipe that looks complicated.  I like to use whatever I have in my kitchen and always look for alternative ingredients available in my kitchen.

Panipuri : The Most Popular Street Food Of India

Panipuri is one of the most popular street food in India. In every streets of India you can find a panipuri vendor. Panipuri is also known as   golgappa or phuchka. Panipuri is  a kind of snack that consists of round shaped hollow balls (puri), spicy mashed potatoes with chickpeas and spicy tamarind water.

The round shaped hollow balls are very crispy, which are stuffed with spicy mashed potatoes and then dipped into the spicy tamarind water.


These hollow crispy balls are made from all purpose flour(maida) and semolina(suji). Actually for me it's very difficult to make perfect crisp balls at home.

These hollow puris in the picture were bought from the store and I just fried those in oil to get perfect round shaped crispy hollow balls.


Making spicy mashed potatoes is very easy. Boiled potatoes are mashed with different Indian spices and boiled chic…

Chicken 65 Gravy Recipe

Chicken 65 is one of the popular dishes of South Indian cuisine.  Chicken 65 is a spicy, deep fried tasty chicken delicacy, originated in Chennai, India. It was first introduced in 1965 by the Buhari Hotel Restaurant in Chennai.

Boneless pieces of chicken are marinated with different spices, flour and curry leaves and thereafter deep fried in oil. Chicken 65 can be served as dry or as gravy. For gravy, the flour coated chicken pieces are again sauteed into a spicy curd gravy.

Although the chicken 65 is  a boneless chicken dish, I also use pieces of chicken with bones because my kids like it that way.

The recipe is not that complicated and I have used simple home ingredients which I store in my kitchen. Serve chicken 65 as a starter or as a side dish.
