I have been away from meat this summer as much as possible. However, this delicious cauliflower steak is light, and I ate it guilt free. I paired it with creamy, lemony hummus and crispy chickpeas. Honestly, any good hummus will do justice to this steak, and I sometimes prefer labneh too.
Sometimes the simplest of dishes are more fulfilling. Spaghetti with roasted cherry tomatoes and basil is one such dish and my go-to pasta when I am not in the mood to cook an elaborate meal. I love the simplicity and freshness of this pasta.
I have always been apprehensive about cooking crabs. And somewhere deep down, I was also scared. Recently, I put my fears to rest and bought a few crabs home to make some delicious crab garlic butter.

Haleem is a rich lentil-based stew that has shredded meat and tastes unique. It is popular in parts of India, other Southeast Asian countries, and the Middle east. I tried it for the first time in the Uae. There was a Pakistani restaurant close to where we lived. Those days I was culinarily challenged, and my cooking skills were below average.
Karzi or Kaji Nemu is ingenious to Assam. We love our sour curries. Chicken curry with Karzi Nemu and rice powder is a dish I had wanted to prepare for a very long time.
Pineapple adds sweetness and freshness to Grilled Cajun shrimps skewers with herb couscous. I grilled these over a grill pan indoors, but fire can add a lot of difference to the taste.
Baked salmon with some light, crunchy salad, and a creamy dip happen to be one of my favorite meals that hardly needs much work.
This gorgeously green risotto with pesto stands out in terms of taste and lightness.
Asian style dishes are always well received in my home. Mango and chicken come together again to create a little magic: Asian style mango chicken with sprouted brown rice.
