Spaghetti Aglio E Olio - Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil

Spaghetti Aglio E Olio is a very simple and easy traditional Italian pasta dish. "Aglio E Olio" means "Garlic and Oil" in Italian. So as per the name its literally spaghetti pasta cooked with garlic and oil. This dish is made by cooking garlic in oil on low heat till garlic is light brown and slightly crispy. Seasoning can be as simple as salt pepper and parsley or you can add some some herbs of your choice (like I have done for this recipe). This garlic and herbs flavor infused oil is then mixed with spaghetti and topped with Parmigiano Reggiano to add some nutty texture. If you love garlic you will surely love this pasta dish.

Kurmura Chivda - Murmura Chivda - Spicy Puffed Rice Mixture

Having seen the tradition of Faral since childhood its difficult for me to think of Diwali without it. So I try and make couple of sweet and savory treats every year and share the recipes with you. For this year's Diwali, I made Sweet Shankarpali and this Kurmura Chivda - one sweet and savory dish.  Kurmura or Murmura Chivda is a super simple, crunchy and easy to make savory snack. Store this in airtight container and this chivda stays fresh and crunchy for weeks.
