Rich pastas for days that need a little extra TLC
It seems my voluptuousness has made me the poster child of cream, butter and malai, as these are the recipes perennially picked by my producers in every proposal I sent. They rarely pick out the brown rice, quinoa or jaggery ones from me. And I feel slight bit liberated about this – it gives me an excuse to look as I do, without worrying about preaching about low calorie foods, healthier versions and what-nots. There are enough qualified people out there doing this for you. So I come bearing comfort recipes that anyone who is normal enough, needs on a regular basis. These two dishes are my answers:
Mushroom Fettuccine & Creamy Tomato Pasta
Cooking did not come into my life as a means to get healthy or to tackle a health situation. It came as a way to escape daily chores and go on a nostalgic journey from some moment or another of the past. As I grew older, finding new ingredients to work with excited me much more than other things. It was a common joke amongst my old friends that Kamini is the easiest to appease to – good cappuccino, a slice of chocolate cake and a block of cheese does the job.
So, here you go, two recipes that go against the rules and ethos of any dietician, nutritionist and wanna-be health preacher, but will go agreeably well with your heart, soul and mind! (Psst… don’t forget to subscribe to the YouTube channels!)
