Thai Soup (Tom Yum)

As far as soups go, this is my favourite.

You are probably familiar with the Thai soup that incorporates coconut milk and lemon-grass. It's commonly known as Tom Kha Gai soup and blasphemous as it may sound, I don't like it because I am allergic to coconut.

You have probably have noticed by now, lemony flavours are special to me. Therefore the other, slightly lesser famous variant, Tom Yum, appeals to my taste-buds.

I had this soup when I was six years old and there has been nothing to beat this delicious, steaming concoction, specially on a rainy and/or chilly winter night. I male this frequently (though never end up noting it down, thanks to my horrific busy schedule) and last time when I made it, I had a sore throat. Interestingly (although predictably), it helped soothe my throat.

There are a number of great versions available online but I wanted something that reminded me of the first time I tasted this soup in my hometown. It's Indianised, no doubt, but it's gorgeous! This is my version through repeated trials (based on the varieties I've tasted in Kolkata, India) and it comes really, really close to those.

PS: It's also a good way to get mushroom haters (like my brother) eat mushrooms.

Steak in Garlic-Lemon-Butter Sauce

I had been thinking of posting this quite a while now, but got snowed under a lot of paperwork. And then when I got around typing it all out, I realized I have no photos. So finally here's the recipe.

PS: I used pork steak but feel free to replace with chicken if pork is not your option.

PPS: I used Nando's Extra Hot Peri Peri Sauce.

Chocolate (Biscuit) Pudding

I believe Cooking is a form of art, and no art form is complete without creativity. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than experimenting with different ingredients. Sometime the results are good, while some other time they are pathetic. But whatever it may be, it never dampens my love for this form of art. Today I am going to share the recipe of one such venture which had a successful outcome. Hopefully you too will find this extremely easy, and bless me while tasting the end result!

Spicy Mutton (Kosha Mangsho)

What should I tell more about this dish; it is one of the most popular dishes of Bengal. I don't think there is any Bengali out there who has not tasted and loved this mutton recipe, which we so fondly call Kosha Mangsho. Be it chapati, paratha or puri (luchi), kosha mangsho has a sizzling chemistry with all of them.

If you have ever tasted this in your life I will bet that you will start salivating just by watching its picture (Pavlov's theory never fails!!). Just have a look and then enjoy its simple recipe:
