@sarchakra is for my love of food and sharing my favorites with you.

Thank you to all who have started following my blog. You encourage and inspire me everyday.

My first foray into cooking was in my High School years when cooking was all about trying out fancy exotic recipes from magazines with hard-to-get ingredients. The results sometimes were delightful but more often than not, pretty frustrating. It made me think that cooking doesn’t really have to be complicated. Good food is not necessarily food drowned in butter or floating in oil but more about using day to day ingredients easily available in your pantry to create dishes that impress your guests. Also food is for sustenance, not to give you a visit to the doctor, right?  So with that said, if you want some fun with food and creativity, you have come to the right place.

Spring Greens Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

I first had this salad a couple of years ago when we went to R’s colleague’s house. You know when you eat something really delicious but are hesitant to ask for the recipe because it’s not tactful or appropriate and you’re not close enough so in case the answer is no that would make things…

Salmon Cakes

These salmon cakes can be served as is, with some tartar sauce but if you were me, you wouldn’t want any sauce to divert you from the taste of these delicious fish cakes! The lemon slices get rid of the fishy smell and the lemon juice makes the fish even juicier. They are so delicate…
