Sinh to bo | Vietnamese Avocado Milkshake





           I was sitting with my little one and watching "Curious George" cartoon and they had an episode which was about Vietnamese food and that is how I became curious about that cuisine. I have never tasted anything sweet with avocados until I tasted this smoothie - Oh my, may be this is the best creamiest sweetest smoothie I ever had in my life. This is a simple milk shake using Avocado Milk and Condensed milk but THE TASTIEST you can ever bet for. This is super creamy and purely delicious.

Caipirinha



            Wow - Finally I'm posting a Cocktail! Have had it many times before but never prepared them personally at home (Hope my dad will not read this post - I am still scared of him knowing that someone(Me) drinks - Sweating and Finger's crossed). I had some Cachaca stored in our pantry unopened, which was a gift for my hubby from his Brazilian friend long time back and when Food Network had Cocktail for this week's Summer Soiree I was happy that I could make use of it :) - Thanks to my hubby for leaving this bottle of liquor untouched for such a long time, came quite handy..

Corn On The Cob with Roasted Garlic Herb Butter





          I am a big fan of sweet corn or normal corn - Raw, Oven Roasted, Boiled or Grilled, am in it anytime for this wonderful snacker. World's 2nd longest urban beach is in Chennai, India called as Marina beach. This is the most common hangout place in Chennai, leisurely and breezy. What makes it more special is the street food sold there. From the wonderful bajji's or bonda's with chutneys hot from the stove to the savory Indian chat foods - its all available there.

General Tso's Chicken (Lighter Version) with Indian Jeera Rice



            When we were in Chicago I loved to Dine/Takeout from Panda Express. Delicious food chain with American Chinese dishes. They had a lot of varieties and I was a fan for Kung pao and Orange chicken but when I read through books on other varieties of chinese chicken, I read about Tso's chicken. When I had a chance to taste that in Asian Dynasty in Leigh Valley mall it was close to orange chicken. They did use some sweet sauce and have it deep fried. The original recipe in store or books don't call for vegetables along with it. Well I wanted this to be more of a lighter version or I can say a Healthy one, so I've totally avoided the part of deep frying, reduced the amount of using brown sugar and added vegetables in this recipe.
