Mixer grinder's are one of the most important kitchen appliances which every Indian kitchen must have.The use case in a Indian kitchen is more than just making a milk shake or a smoothie. We use mixer grinders for making idli dosa batter, tomato puree, milk shakes, juices, chutneys, spice powders and much much more. If you have a small kitchen, you would want to optimize on the  storage and counter space and keep it clutter free.

In most of our trips to properties the first thing that catches our eye is the dining room and the kitchen. These are the two most important places in every home with kids, parents and extended family. Be it studying with kids, having family dinners and cooking along with your family, the life simply revolves around these two rooms.

Thai Cuisine is a favorite at Indian homes, primarily because it is packed with flavors from the lemon grass, basil and spices along with coconut milk. Thai cuisine is also one of the few Asian cuisines that use an abundance of vegetables making it very light and friendly to the palate. But not every time, it becomes easy for us to make exotic meals at home.

A lot of us are aware drinking juice gives us that instant energy during a hot summer day, post a workout. Making good old homemade juices brings back fond memories of our mother or grandmother, who would whip up a fresh fruit juice to give you that instant energy. In addition, juices are probably one of the easiest ways to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, through a healthy, refreshing way.

‘People who loves to eat are always the best people’, I completely agree on this quote, as we here at Archana’s Kitchen are all big time foodies. We have a tradition of team lunch once in a month and we try to explore different types of cuisines and places with our every visit. I always enjoy sitting with my amazing team, enjoy the food, talk about its taste and flavour and plan what exciting we can do next. Well, we get ideas when we get good food to eat!

Every time someone goes out of town from the family, we end up making a huge list of snacks, sweets and other similar things which are prominent in that particular town. Usually, we buy snacks and sweets which are famous in smaller quantities while we are travelling but once it gets over we crave for it because we loved it a way too much. There are also many things which we ate while growing up and still remember the taste of it.

I always had an eye on the yellow building behind our office at Indiranagar and wished to go in there. This Sunday I decided to try the place and was really eager to taste their food. We entered and it was a semi-open place that had blue walls and a yellow room had the displays of bread they bake. On the other side the pastry corner, the man in the billing area handed us the menu card that was small and had come classics that we wanted to order.

Having chocolates is an exciting affaire at our home and are always in the look out for the finest chocolate which has the rich taste and the melt in the mouth texture. Having travelled around the world and live in european countries, I have had the privilege to taste some of the best chocolates in the world and among them is a classic favorite Amedei which is a Venezuelan sourced Porcelana bar. It was not until recently, that I had to break that note on my mind when I taste Fabelle Chocolates.

Jan 6th was when Archana's Kitchens', first ever office space got inaugurated. The first team lunch was to Monkey Bar on day one, but we were all so stiff that easing out was out of the question with no selfies and no photos of food. That's so unlike Archana. We got into the grind with a little bit of ups and downs (few team members leaving). But that did not shatter us as a team. We worked hard, delivered our OKRs and even managed to roll out a fabulous Valentine's Day Contest, which did so well. This surely needed a celebration for team work and support.

Growing up watching TV has always revolved around food and sports and now it continues to revolve around food, sports, space travel and aliens in other planets.

When I moved back to India in 2007 after an 8 year stint in US, I realized I had came back to a country that had very few TV shows. The only shows that were still airing were Sanjeev Kapoor's Khana Khazana and may be a few regional Indian cooking shows. I was so disappointed. I could not watch some of my favorite TV shows from the US. Food Network had taken over my life and I felt devoid of not being able to watch Food Cooking Shows.

The last time I rode a scooter was when I was in the 12th grade, hopping on the scooter to go to school, tuitions and catch a bite with friends at a confectionary store what would sell ice creams, spring rolls and veg puffs. But the farthest memory was when I used to go on scooter rides with my dad almost every sunday after a game of tennis or run just to eat the quaintest idli's and ghee roast from our favorite joint - Annapoorna Gowrishankar in Coimbatore.

For the amount of cooking I do, I thought an article on where I shop often would help build the online ecosystem and marketplace. Do you know there is an online grocery store called BigBasket.com where I shop from which takes grocery shopping to a whole new level? You can find everything you need to run a kitchen and also everyday household goods. It is an ideal place to do your weekly shopping as you’re likely to get everything you want in one place, which is unusual in India!

What I do with my KitchenAid Grain Mill? I make fresh whole grain cookies, breads and roti's. Well I must confess that I dont use it as much as I love to use it, but after a spring cleaning I have started using it more often. And now, plan to not store it back into the pantry and let it sit there, but keep it attached to my KitchenAid, so I can use it more frequently.

Sucré is a patisserie owned and run by a good friend of mine, Suhasini Sood in Delhi. The story of Sucré is made out of memories of delicious homemade birthday cakes and a Parisian town full of magnificent patisseries and boulangeries. Sucré, meaning “sweetened” in French, was officially born in 2011 from the passion of Suhasini Sood, a woman who fell in love with baking, and after the requests of a cheering crowd of friends and family who fell in love with her desserts.

Rava Dosa is a semolina crepe that is flavored with black pepper, ginger, green chillies and coriander. I like to call it a lace crepe because of the many holes the crepe forms while making it. Rava dosa is one of the popular instant dosa's that you can make at home. It is a favorite with my family especially for dinner.


Recently I tried the Soulfull's Rava Dosa mix, as it is, without the addition of salt and without the addition of any more flavors. It was very very fresh, tuned out crips and delicious. I served it for breakfast along with thakkali vengayam sambar and my family loved it! 

The variations you can add to this is by adding some finely chopped cabbage or finely chopped onions to get a rustic flavor to this traditional south indian tiffin dish.

I typically dont buy ready made products, but Soulfull's product was of high quality with full of freshness. The instructions in the back of the product was simple and easy to understand. This is something I would stock in my pantry for those emergency days when I dont want to cook, but yet want to have something nutritious.

Adai is protein packed lentil crepe, similar to a dosa. It is typically had as a tiffin dish in the south indian homes. The tiffin dishes can be had for breakfast or for dinner. The Adai is typically heavier than a normal flour crepe or a dosa.
