Sabudana Vada

Sabudana Vada (Crispy Sago/tapioca pearl fritters) is a popular snack dish in Maharashtra and also in other parts of the India especially during the fasting days like Navratri. These deep fried vadas are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside so whether you serve them for breakfast or as snack make sure to serve them hot and fresh with spicy Green Chutney and/or Ketchup and hot chai (tea) for that ultimate and satiating breakfast or snack experience.

Tropical Parfait - Tropical Granola Parfait

Its Sprinnnngggg  (Yay!!!) but with the temperatures here touching 80F, it already feels like summer. A cool refreshing snack is what we crave for especially after work or school. At such times, a chilled Smoothie or a glass of parfait fits the bill perfectly.

Virgin Mojito

Hi Everyone, hope you all are doing great! Sorry about the long absence from this space. Travel and personal commitments took preference and hence couldn't spend much time blogging. Although you didn't see much here I promise I've been cooking, also tried some new dishes which am super excited to share with you all (hopefully soon). During the absence here I've been pretty active on Instagram (shwetainthekitchen) and Snapchat (shwetainkitchen) sharing some snippets of our day to day eats, so if you would like to see that don't forget to follow me there.
