Kashmiri Dum Aloo | Dum Olav | No Onion No Garlic North Indian Aloo Dom

Dum Olav | Kashmiri Pure Veg Aloo Dom

They say 'Unity is in Diversity' and there is no better way than food to prove it. But if you have to find a single item to impress most of Indians what would you choose? My pick is potato and it has to be a Dum aloo. Yes, I’m calling it ‘A Dum Aloo’ intentionally, it’s not any typo. Because there are 29 states in India and almost every region has their own recipe of ‘Dum Aloo’. So in India you will get to taste at least 10-15 varieties of it with completely different recipes and ingredients. I’ve already shared two different Aloo Dum recipes, Bengali Veg Alu Dom without Onion & Garlic and Dum Aloo with Onion & Coriander leaves; both are from eastern region of India. Now it’s time to move to other regions; and I’ve made my move towards north this time. Yes, it’s Dum Olav from the majestic Kashmir, which is more popular as Kashmiri Dum Aloo.

Margarita Cake | Tequila & Lime Cake | Wedding Cake | Boozy Adult Cake

Tequila & Lime Cake

“When Life hands you Limes, grab a bottle of Tequila & Salt”

This is not just a quote to me; this is my motto of life. Or you can say it’s the resolution for this year and it was always there in all these past years. I follow a simple life filled with small details and happiness on daily doses. So I simply cut down the complicated inner meaning of the quote and took the literal meaning very seriously. As a result my pantry is well stocked with tequila and whisky, always! I may not have a bread to feed you in odd time but I must have a bottle of tequila to serve you, anytime you want. Hey, hang on! Right now I have Margarita Wedding Cake with Tequila & Lime to feed you too! How cool is that?

Best Recipes of the year 2014 | ScratchingCanvas

Hello guys! Happy New Year to all of you. Hope you had a great time. I had an awesome holiday. It was fun, full of craziness; a kind of holiday which can be compared with itself only. I got so indulge I almost forgot I have a job a blog to run and a life which is anything but a holiday. But now I’m back to business. And what else can be better than a roundup of the previous year.
