Roshogolla/Rasgulla needs to no introduction. I am sure most Indians are familiar with these lyrical, spongy balls of homemade cheese, simmered in and drunk with light sugar syrup. The story of the eastern regions of India is quite incomplete without this quintessential dessert and anyone can tune in to the “Ro-sho-gol-la“ quite melodiously.
Gobi Makhani or Gobi Butter Masala is another of the popular “Makhani or Butter Masala” recipes. Any “Makhani” dish speaks eloquently of the magnificence of the Indian cuisine. They all have a stately aura around them. In today’s recipe, the cauliflower florets are cooked in a fragrant and silky sauce draped with cream.
Are you familiar with Ivy gourds? I know it is quite common in India and probably in a lot of other Asian countries and it goes by many names.

Baingan ka Bharta is one of the classic north Indian recipes. What makes this recipe so rustic and beautiful is the aroma of the fire grilled eggplants.
