Spanish Style Omelette
A big thank you to my Niece, Aysha 🙂 for this delightful Spanish Style Omelette recipe. This recipe is a cross between a Spanish Omelette (Tortilla Española) and a Frittata. So what’s the difference? An omelette is usually cooked from start to finish on the stove top and uses a good non-stick pan. Cooking a frittata, starts on the stove top and is finished up in the oven, so it is usually cooked in a cast iron pan or bake-ware.
The fillings for an omelette and frittata can be similar, but Fritatta’s can contain extra toppings such as cooked meat, cheeses, vegetables and pasta. It resembles a crustless Quiche. The word ‘Frittata’ is Italian and roughly translates to “fried”. A classic Spanish omelette contains just onions and potatos. In this recipe, we have combined the two to make this tasty and easy to make breakfast or brunch. Perfect, for when you are craving eggs and also need a hearty meal.

Waldorf Salad Recipe
The Waldorf Salad was created in the late 1900’s at the Waldorf Hotel, New York. The Waldorf Maître d’hôtel, Oscar Tschirky is credited with creating the classic recipe. The original Waldorf Salad Recipe which was published in his cook book did not contain nuts. Since then, however nuts have been a staple addition to this favorite classic. Thanks to my niece Amisha for this contribution.
Quite effortless to prepare, this is a delightful crisp and crunchy, fresh salad that everyone should try for sure. Since very few ingredients are used, the quality of the ingredients indeed play a vital role.

Delicious Green Chicken Tacos with Green Tomatoes and Avacado
You must try my Green Chicken Tacos. They’re very tasty! Have you ever had a Tomatillo Chicken Taco? This is my take on a tomatillo taco, replacing the tomatillo with green tomato ( thats an under ripened tomato – very green in color). A tomatillo is a Mexican husk tomato or green tomato and not the same thing a an under ripened green tomato. Tomatillos are small green tomatoes which are enclosed in a papery husk. The husk is removed, and the tomatoes are washed till the sticky layer is gone. Tomatillo’s are very common in Mexican cuisine. I used to love watching my friends mom, making these tomatillo tacos when I was a child. It had tomatillos, poblano peppers ( a green pepper with a thick skin) and avocado. Later I discovered that tomatillos are not available in many countries. So I came up with this recipe using under ripened tomatoes instead. It is awesome and easy to make – Try it! Just look for under ripened GREEN tomatoes in the pile of red tomatoes at your local supermarket. There are always some nice firm green tomatoes in there. I love cooking with green tomatoes. You might want to check out my Green Pepper Corn Chicken Curry Recipe too. And please don’t leave out the avocado. It provides the perfect bite along with the shredded savory chicken. I used to hate avocado till I realized the avocado I had a few times was actually over ripened. These can have an off taste – like an oily taste. Remember the avocado is ripe when there’s just a slight give when pressed. They should still be quite hard. They should not remain indented where you pressed them.
