Grilled Peaches and Couscous A Summer Dessert_Baketitude


Stone fruits flood the market in the summer. And for me, life is beyond mangoes. I adore peaches. Fuzzy, juicy,sweet and tart.

Skillet Brownies with Peanut Butter_Baketitude


A word of advice.  These are by far the most addictive brownies ever. They caramalise at the bottom, so you get a crust that’s like a caramel jam tainted with chocolate. The centre is all goes and warm chocolate. That peanut butter just contrasts with the deep Flavor of the chocolate. The mild saltiness is Read More

Tomato Chutney_Baketitude


You’ve got to see tomatoes like this… We visited a family friends farm in Ropar, Punjab. They grow tomatoes and bell peppers. The vegetables were so so beautiful.

Whole Wheat Focaccia Baketitude


I absolutely adore focaccia. There is something inherently beautiful about this rustic flatbread. Technically you must bake this in an oven, but even if you do not have an oven,you can make the bread in an electric tandoor. All you need is a flat surface and high heat.

Brioche is such an under rated and over awed bread.Every one is in awe of brioche . And me? I”m in awe of the amount of butter that goes into it. Its has a massive amount of butter in one loaf. And then, to add more for making it into a garlic bread. That is Read More
