Join the Fun

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Simmi Sareen and I have been writing Bombay Foodie for the last ten years.

My love for food started much earlier. It comes, I think, from growing up in Punjab, where there is a kulcha seller on every street. Or maybe it comes from growing up in a house where we started talking about what's for dinner while we were eating breakfast. My mother's a fabulous cook and my father has really clear ideas about what he likes to eat, so I got talking and thinking about food pretty early on. Then, when I started living in other cities and travelling to even more cities, I experienced all new flavours and ingredients.

All of this gets absorbed in the food I cook and eat. I love to cook simple food with bold flavours. I experiment with baking, And I am a huge fan of that newfangled school of cooking called molecular gastronomy.

This blog is my place to tell food stories. But more importantly, this is the gateway for me to meet fellow foodies. There are many ways you can be a part of the Bombay Foodie story:

- Have a heirloom recipe or a successful experiment to share?
- Want to join Bombay Foodie for a cookout or a review?
- Want to invite Bombay Foodie to taste your food or teach you a favourite recipe?

All you need to do is to email me at bombayfoodie [at] gmail [dot] com

Or tweet me @SimmSareen. I also post a lot of foodie pictures on instagram. I'm @SimmSareen there too. Do check them out.

Blog Picks : Soft Yogurt Sandwich Rolls

Much before I started blogging, I started reading through food blogs. And bookmarking recipes I would like to try some time. The list has grown so long that it would soon be enough to last me a lifetime. So I have decided to give my experiments in the kitchen a rest and go the tried and tested way with choice picks from my favorite blogs. The first blog pick comes from a baker who inspired me to bake my first cookie. I never miss a recipe on her blog, but this one was specially appealing. For I haven't graduated to baking a loaf yet and I wanted to bake buns before I take the big leap. So here comes this recipe for soft sandwich rolls and I promptly bookmarked it. Nicole has an excellent step-by-step recipe on her site so I am not going to repeat it here. But I must say that the buns were easy to make, and super yummy. I halved her recipe and made smaller rolls so ended up with eight of them. They never reached the making sandwiches stage because a few were eaten straight

Healthy Spinach Rice for Microwave Potluck Party

Is it really two years that Srivalli has been running her innovative microwave cooking event . She's prompted me to try my microwave for more than just heating several times. Just like last year, Srivalli celebrates the event anniversary with a potluck party . I took a dessert to the party last time around, but this time I was rooting for something healthier. I turned to last year's roundup, and there was this spinach rice . Valli, hope you don't mind getting the same dish on the menu again. To make spinach rice, wash and soak 1/2 cup rice. In a microwave safe dish, heat a tsp of ghee for 30 seconds. Add 5-6 peppercorns and heat for another 10 seconds. Now add a small onion, chopped finely and microwave for another 30 seconds. Add a cup of finely chopped spinach, 1/2 a tsp of garam masala and another 1/2 tsp of salt. Mix and cook for 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts. Add rice to the bowl, and a cup of water then pop it back in the microwave for 5 minutes. Bring it

Announcing AWED : Britain

Before I ate my first Italian wood fired pizza, before I went to that swanky Japanese sushi bar for the first time, or the neighborhood Chinese joint, the first non-Indian cuisine I encountered was British. Not real food, mind you, but the tempting, oh so delicious descriptions in my favorite novels. From Enid Blyton to Jane Austen to P.G. Wodehouse, every favorite character in every favorite novel seems to have food on their mind. Yes, British food gets ridiculed a lot. But forget their main course dishes for now, and think of the full English breakfast and the elegant afternoon teas. Then try imagining the world without cucumber sandwiches or potato chips and you will realize you can't do without British food. Which is why when I saw that DK was looking for hosts for her monthly event AWED (A Worldly Epicurean's Delight) and there has never been a British AWED, I promptly signed up. The rules are simple really: Make any vegetarian or vegan British dish (eggs are
