Ever since I started cooking Taiwanese, I went a bit overboard with regards of buying noodles. As of now I might have about 10 different types of noodles in my stock, but I only have experience of cooking with 4 😀
Thai rice noodles are one of those which I never cooked. Until now 😉

Few days back I brought this huge radish and had no clue what to do with it. So today I decided to make a pancake out of this for breakfast 🙂
This is inspired by the pancakes my mom would make for me, as usual, I modified the recipe 😀
This came out quite randomly 😀
While returning home, I just felt like having some good sea food. A few days back I just happened to have asked my mom about how she makes the fish curry that I really love. A few days before that I discovered a Turkish shop near my place that recently opened and sells fresh sea food.
So in that moment I decided to make this 😉
I love chain of events which ends up in things I didn’t intend on doing …
Now that I cook more Taiwanese, I was looking out for different types of noodles. Hence I cam across the rice noodles used for making pad Thai. That got me thinking about that I never attempted making it 🙂
Hence this recipe:
There are more than a few recipes that I loved eating in Taiwan …
I stumbled upon this one randomly. While traveling I like wandering off into streets without knowing where they lead to. In one such endeavor I passed by a small corner shop where they seemed to be making something interesting .. plus I was hungry.
That’s how I found the “Thick fish noodle soup” 🙂
So I tried making it in Munich ..
Last week I visited Taiwan for the first time. It was also the first time I was in a far east Asian country. I usually don’t plan much before i travel somewhere, so had no clue what kind of food to expect.
… and I was surprised! They have such an amazing variety of awesome food! 😀
I was literally eating something every hour 😛
So now that I am back .. I have decided to “try” recreating some of the things I liked over there. (At least before I start modifying them 😉 )
Beef noodle soup is one of the most popular dishes there .. so here goes:
The Italian series continues …
About the same time I came across the pasta made with red wine, I came across this .. Conchiglioni di Napoli. I have no clue how to make of this, though I have seen the smaller versions of this. But looked like something you can fill. Hence this recipe:
This time, when I visited Italy, I decided to load my backpack with as much fancy pasta I could while coming back. Also been sometime since I added any Italian on my blog.
One of these pastas is like a Tagliolini made with red wine. Hence it caught my eye 😉
There are many places that are uniquely identified by some of their signature dishes. I have the privilege of calling one of such places as my home.
One might find it hard to identify as being a “Mumbaikar” unless they haven’t had a “Vada pav”. So I decided to make the batata vada tonight 🙂
With a lot of cuisine, you may notice recipes that don’t really exist in the place they are supposed to be from. Example: In Germany, one of the most popular and common recipes in Indian restaurants is “Mango Chicken”. In Estonia, they serve “Honey Chicken”.
What I assumed to be a similar case, is “Chole Chicken”. But turns out it’s quite common in the northern part of India. It just happens that I never tried or came across it before 🙂
Hence this …
