@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.

When we lived in…

Paneer Bhurji

Paneer Bhurji is scrambled Indian cheese with a medley of spices from an Indian kitchen. You can use homemade paneer for this recipe or for a super quick dish, use store bought ones. The spices you use can vary according to what you have. For example if you don’t have dried mango powder, use fresh…

Tofu Soup

I’m sorry for not posting for a while. I’ve been a bit MIA for the last couple of months. Summer months are always hard to keep consistent with writing even though we are very much eating! I’ve been traveling a lot and it has been hard to document everything due to lack of time. I’m…
