Ramadan Chronicles: Banana Date Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

First, let me just say: The Maathaaland* has DEFIED EXPECTATIONS and sent the Group B from Cricket Champions trophy tournament into mayhem by beating India. We are all properly gobsmacked at this turn of events. I heard even MamaFizzle was properly enthused. In the animal world, this would be like: Anyway, back to food. There…

Smoked Salmon Mushroom Pasta @ The FizzleHQ

I am quite alarmed and aggrieved. I have discovered that in my absence from the Fizzle HQ, it has descended into chaos and pandemonium. A veritable amalgamation of disturbing happenings, unwise behavior and sinister patterns. I have discovered that now, AFizzle cleans the bathroom with enthusiasm. I am Truly Baffled. I will attempt to rectify…

Behold: Smoothie

Do not underestimate THE POWER of the Smoothie. Me making smoothie: Smoothie context: Date syrup, coconut milk, nut butter, yogurt, frozen mixed berries, banana and of course, H2O Also optional, chia seeds, milk, and probably other (edible) things and fruits I haven’t thought of…YET STEP 1:   STEP 2:   STEP 3:   Bonus GIF:  …

Sweet Potato with Chicken

I wanted a self-explanatory title, okay? The Sweet Potatoes living in the fridge were many. And there was only so much Sweet Potato soup one can put in one’s belly before one’s belly becomes a sweet potato. And that would just mess with one’s digestive system. So Mr. Kizzle requested sweet potato with chicken. So…

Aduku Roti

Alright, Fizzles, tuck in your (ironed) shirts, polish your shoes, prepare 10 cups of Dilmah milk tea (don’t forget the saucers), watch the 1996 cricket world cup on repeat, be very late to every appointment, and make sure you’re stocked up on kothamalli … because it’s SRI LANKAN RECIPE TIME! This one’s a personal favorite…

Gulab Jamum-Inspired Cake

OK, Fellow Fizzles, you know I enjoy a good Gulab Jamum now and then. Except that it breaks all the food rules. All of them. Health rules AND my cooking rules. Health wise, these are deep fried heart attacks soaked in a bed of diabetic inducing sugar. More importantly, It defies MY ultimate personal cooking…

Cabbages, Cabbages (Vegetable Stir-Fry)

This is Mr. Kizzle with a cabbage: This is me with cabbages: He is a strange human, who eats cabbages like this: I picture Mr. Kizzle internally reacting like this when I dubiously attempt cabbage food: But I had to try, because a gigantic cabbage head in the fridge for months is like: So here…

Making Bread Easier

Making bread easier…well for me anyway. Though of you who view bread-making as a piece of cake, well, go EAT CAKE, OK!!? I don’t like it. I don’t like making bread. It’s all that kneading… Then by the end, you’re just like this, exhausted but still kneading: It’s just… So…you’d think flat bread doesn’t make…

Strawberry Sorbet

Today, I share with you a ‘recipe’ that is in my mind, incomparable As you can probably tell by our ice cream experiments (Avocado Kiwi Ice Cream, Counterfeit Ice Cream, and Cookies and Cream Ice Cream), and my freezing food bananza, (Frozen Cubes series featuring: tomato paste, avocado, and curry paste) I love the freezer. Like…

Frozen Cubes: Curry paste

Maybe smart people already do this, but I discovered it by accident. I was actually supposed to be making chicken and vegetable Biryani. I started with…

Frozen Cubes: Avocado

The Ice cube chronicles, part 2.. I explained in ‘part one’, the tomato paste version, my discoveries of the freezer and my exploration of what it is truly capable of. You know avocados? They’re beautiful things that make pretty pretty foods, with awesome texture. You can make Ice cream, Strawberry Mousse, Chocolate Mousse, brownies, sandwiches… Basically,…

Frozen Cubes: Tomato Paste

I need to tell you something. Something that might just alter the fabric of time and space. There’s this thing we have in the depths of our Kitchen. It is a magical place. You open the door, and it leads you to a frozen land where time is altered, and keeps things young and fresh….
