Hop Right In!

I believe that salt is to food, what food is to life. In right proportions, it can heighten the taste of what you eat..and in the wrong - destroy! Even the most delicious sweets come added with some salt...to taste!

As for me, I've never enjoyed cooking. And as contrary to my owning a food-blog as it may sound, I always think about daily, routine cooking as a chore. But my tryst with the pots and pans began when I got a kitchen all to myself...I began experimenting and exploring new worlds in my own home. Some outcomes were excellent and some plain disasters. Then sprouted the need to keep track of all those good ones...and hence this blog!

Here, I share those experiments that pleased more than one palate!

Tik Tac-O

Talk about using leftover food after you've had guests. It has been, by far, the best way to fix myself a quick meal after a weekend of entertaining. I had a few pieces of paneer tikka left and of course tacos. So, I took it a step further by mixing up cuisines, which I so love to do. I orginally thought I will call this one Tic Tac Toe... but, hmph, where's the creativity?!

6-8 pcs Paneer Tikka
1 Soft Taco
6 Cucumber slices, halved
6 Carrot sticks, julienned
1/3 Cup sour cream
And, of course, some salt to taste!!

- Lay the taco on a plate
- Spread the sour cream on it
- Toss in the paneer tikka cubes, cucumber slices, carrots
- Sprinkle some salt
- Fold over


This scrummy taco is off to Gomathy's event Leftover Delicacies hosted at Chef of the Lounge @ Spicy Lounge.

I do hope you try this one, Gomathy. Makes for a filling meal!
