So, I’m back to cooking and posting! So many ideas in my head, so many pics on the computer. Get ready to be introduced to two exciting new series on the blog! More on that later.
Today, I’m posting for you my entry for the Kitchen Ninjas’ first challenge (that’s what a group of us food bloggers have decided to call the monthly challenge that will allow us to push ourselves to try new recipes and venture into a new world of food!). The challenge for this month is ‘A date with the Mumbai rains’. This is my favourite kinda theme. Those of you who know me definitely know my obsession with the rains. The smell of the mud, the cool breeze, the sound of the pitter patter at night all give me such a high. And when I have to bake and cook with the rain pouring outside, I’m blissful.
So, when asked to put together a dish for my date with the Mumbai rains, all I could think of was onion pakodas and corn bhutta! But, I wanted to give it a twist. So I created a concoction of birista or fried onions, paneer, mint and sweet corn and stuffed into a roulade of chicken breast, serving it up with a pomegranate sauce. But before I present my recipe to you, I want to introduce you to my Ninja counterparts, who’ve put up some brilliant recipes!
