Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more.

However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!

  2. Wow the curry sounds and looks really flavorful. I am not a big fan of soya chunks, but my husband loved it, will prepare for him sometime. My mum-in-law use poppy seeds paste in most of their dishes, that looks tasty but I never used by myself. By seeing your recipe, I am curious to use it once into my chicken dishes. The curry would make a great side dish for rice and roti.
