You must be thinking what’s B3? Is this some sort of cooking formula? Though, it is just an easy cheesy deep fried broccoli recipe, but it is indeed my fusion fritter formula made with 3 key ingredients broccoli, besan (chickpea flour) and balsamic vinegar. Being a vegetarian, most of all broccoli is my boon vegetable, but the trivia is that there is not much traditional Indian cooking morphed around broccoli. Furthermore, the Indian broccoli recipes I come across, like broccoli curries, spicy stir fries and the likes, tend to overcook or over spice this veggie. A true broccoli lover knows that overcooking broccoli means killing the stout and crunchy taste character of this green protein, nothing less than a cooking crime. Well, sounds like a great opportunity for Honey Buzzard, to create a noble taste that is true to broccoli’s original character and just rightly Indianized. aa Why an Indian…
Your first time of doing something is always special. London for me is special because London for me is a lot of “first time things”!
On a local flight with Croatian Airlines, I was watching the customary advertisement, packaged with all glorifying things that all countries say about themselves like great food, great beaches, great people, great heritage…. Ending with the tagline “Croatia – Full of Life”.

Who hasn’t been riveted by the magnificence of Grand Canyons? It is a landscape that is visible from the space and surely finds space on every traveler’s bucket list? On mine too! The layers of Grand Canyons inspired my 7 layered Mexican Bhel recipe I had always been blazed by the layers, hues and textures of the rustic canyons, just like any other pair of travelers eyes would want to rest gaze on them. On my trip to the canyons, the whole day, I walked along the wide spread arms of…
Sitting next to my girlfriend Shipra, as she was driving us to Girdwood, I gave her that look “If I wasn’t dying to sledge with the Alaskan huskies tomorrow,
I would be lying if I said I didn’t notice Croatia because of Game of Thrones (GOT). Like many others, the unreal scenic shots of Kings Landing attracted me to find where is this place on earth?
I conceived a potato and beetroot salad from my trip to Croatia! Game of Thrones, Islands, Zinfandel, National Parks….. were the internet researched impressions I had on my mind when I planned my trip to Croatia in the summer of July’16. I also browsed about Croatian food and all I got was pictures of Octopus….. being a vegetarian my gourmet dreams broke : ( Many Croatian food plates later I must say “never trust internet entirely, experience your own”. Croatian cuisine is primarily around seafood but you will never fall short of tasting Croatian flavors on a veggie plate. I enjoyed my culinary experience in Croatia so much that it even inspired me to invent a potato and beetroot salad recipe. The simplicity of Croatian cooking appealed to my culinary senses the most. Croatians mostly treat any piece of food meat, fish or veggies with just 3 ingredients – Olive…
