Viral Salmon & Rice

I know you’ve probably seen that viral salmon and rice recipe online. It all started from a girl named Emily Mariko, who posted it on Tiktok and since then, it seems that everyone has been making it. And now it was my turn! I had to put my own twist on the recipe though. I…

Indian food is one of those cuisines that I have never really cooked much, but love to eat. This recipe was Chickpea Biryani from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook.

This risotto recipe actually starts on the stove then gets baked in the oven. I know it’s not traditional but it turned out sort of well for me. I still would like…

Recipe #39: Chickpea Tikka Masala with Green Rice

I love indian curries. I don’t usually make them too spicy but they’re so flavourful because of all the different spices. This chickpea tikka masala was perfect in that regard. It was seasoned so well and made the house smell incredible. Another reason I love indian curries is the coconut milk. It adds so much…
