Yes, it’s that time of the year – when we are all busy cleaning, decorating and renovating our homes, when we are running around for shopping to purchase new clothes, sweets, gift for loved ones, fire crackers and so much more, when we are putting in our best efforts to make our homes look beautiful and divine! Diwali, the “Festival of Lights” is here! Apart from all the fun of bursting crackers and performing the Puja rituals, an integral part of Diwali is preparing special delicacies and relishing them with your near and dear ones. I, personally, love that moment when we all sit together and have the amazing dishes prepared by Mom on the auspicious occasion of Diwali.

Tingle Your Taste Buds wants to be a part of your Diwali and so we present to you a series of Diwali Recipes which are pe...

We had received a number of requests to post recipes of Main Dishes which can be made for special occasions especially when you have guests at home. So Tingle Your Taste Buds presents recipes of two sumptuous main dishes for you all this week!

A paneer (Cottage cheese) item is usually a must have in the menu during any occasion or get-together. Infact, it’s a common joke among Indians that paneer is the “chicken” of the vegetarians implying it is an equally tasty and luxurious food item. One can make a multitude of dishes using paneer not just for main course but for snacks or appetizers as well. Paneer is high in protein and calcium content, and many people who have lactose intolerance or cannot digest milk are advised to have paneer instead regularly...

It’s been so hot this summer that we all keep looking for recipes to beat the heat – there is never an end to cooling summer beverages! This week Tingle Your Taste Buds presents two diverse and energizing beverage recipes which are bound to leave one feeling exhilarated and raring to go.

Our first beverage recipe this week is the super hydrating Watermelon Juice. Like all fruit juices, it has a lot of health benefits, is low-fat and boosts the immune system. This is a very quick recipe and can be made without much effort. It’s a known fact that watermelons, whether in the fruit form or juice form, are natural hydrants due to their high water content (Around 90% of it is water !!!) A lesser known fact is that the watermelon seeds which most of us throw away have high quantities of iron...

Biryani is a world renowned dish and it’s history is as interesting and rich as the dish itself. It is not a simple to make dish due to its unique process of layering, and requires practice to get it perfect. A meal consisting of scrumptious biryani can be extremely satisfying due to its unique aroma, flavours and spices. Across the world, biryani is prepared in a number of styles now and different regions have their own type of Biryani. Originally, Biryani was prepared by cooking long-grained rice with meat, chicken, fish or eggs but eventually the vegetarian version also came through. Well, that happens with every dish doesn’t it? :)

After being treated to authentic Biryani in Hyderabad, it was quite amusing that wherever I went and ordered for Biryani in restaurants, I was served pulao in...

Sprouts Indulgence

It’s time for some sprouts indulgence at Tingle Your Taste Buds! I still very clearly remember an incident when during a casual conversation, I told someone that I had sprouts for breakfast. The reaction was – “Oh what along with it?” and I said “Nothing, just that.” which was responded to with “Really? It was enough?”. Well, the answer truly is that it is more than enough and am sure all sprout lovers across the globe will concur with me. In India, traditionally sprouts have never really been an integral part of our diet. So while people are turning health conscious and many have now started including sprouts in their regular diet, there is a section of people who still think that it is not the perfect breakfast item...
