I, AM, officially obsessed with “cauliflower rice”. To be honest, i had my doubts when i thought about making pulao with it. But the end product was so mind-blowing that i can’t wait to try other variety rice items using cauliflower rice. Best part about this rice is it took me all of 15 minutes

Cacciatore in Italian means “hunter-style”. Basically if a hunter came home empty-handed, his wife would kill a chicken for the meal instead. I use my slow cooker a lot, a LOT, coz its so easy to throw things in before going to bed with a wonderful aroma waking me up in the morning. I have

Flan is the easiest dessert you can make and this variation with coconut adds a twist to this wonderful dessert. I have not added any sugar to the custard because condensed milk and sweetness from coconut cream is good enough. I have seen some people add more eggs, but those flans turn out too eggy

There are several different kinds of chili out there and my favorites are the ones that do not have beans in them. I feel beans are used by restaurants as fillers and they do kill the flavor of meat. This particular recipe if a favorite of mine since it has a little tanginess to it

Outside of festivals, its a great side dish for Adai, another nutritious Indian pancake you can find in my site. There are a lot of vegetables used, hence quantity of each vegetable is so less.
