The Christmas eve is tomorrow and am sure you all are preparing for it in the last minutes. There are such classic bakes to choose from, apart from the traditional plum cake, mince pies there are whole array of cookies that could be baked to keep up with the festive spirit. While nothing announces the arrival of Christmas like a glass of mulled wine and spiced gingerbread mans but many of us vouch by the simple butter cookies decorated with sugar paste. 

This winter seems to be the most hectic one of my whole life. With two weddings in the family and the small baking ventures of mine I was neck deep in baking and decorating cakes and cookies. After all 'tis the season and I enjoyed every minute of it. Was glad to be featured as one of Kolkata's homebaker on Polka Cafe.

Orange Olive Oil cake

2:24 AM


I was considering a few of my ready drafts to be posted for Christmas. But nothing suited the joy and happiness that this beautiful festivities bring on. After many a thought I decided on this orange olive oil cake, afterall the citrusy flavours is the toast of the season.

There are plenty of recipes available online. Some belong to the Italian genre where whole oranges are blended and mixed with extra virgin olive oil and almond meal, Some belong to the sponge cake genre with the eggs beaten with a handheld mixer till fluffy and light and then the oil is poured and mixed at the end.

Mutton Kasha (Spicy curried Goat Meat/ bengali style Bhuna Gosht)

1:48 AM


To continue with my less is more approach let me stop talking and present to you this classic Mutton Kasha recipe. An amazingly aromatic rich and delicious curry with tender pieces of goat meat laced with the warm aroma of Garam masala powder. It calls for a very few ingredients, mostly available in your home kitchen. and if you are twitching your nose looking at the amount of fat in the dish then yes it's spicy, it's rich and definitely it's oily but it makes for a finger licking meal once in a while.
