Wedges de pomme de terre

THANKFUL TO ALL DIFFERENT WAYS WE CAN EAT POTATOES

These chunky, peppery golden potato wedges are always a winner at parties and barbecues

We all love roasted potatoes. They’re so versatile. We can use up fresh herbs on them or throw in the dried stuff. Most of you  pretty lazy people just use salt, rosemary and garlic powder, but we also like them with a kick. What’s your favorite way to make roasted potatoes?

This is a little weird, but we like to let the potatoes sit for about 10 minutes after taking them out of the oven. They get a little softer, both inside and outside. We are guessing everyone else likes their potato wedges crispy on the outside, so feel free to skip that step!

These spicy potato wedges are no good reheated, so eat them up while still warm!

Ingredients

  • 400 gm potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5-6 garlic cloves crushed (or maybe 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 3 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 8-9 mint leaves
  • cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Procedure

  1. Cut potatoes into wedge with potato skin on.
  2. In a mixing bowl add all the spices and olive oil and mix well.
  3. Keep it to rest for about 20 minutes such that the flours are absorbed well.
  4. Pre-heat the oven at 300 temperature.
  5. Grease the tray and spread the wedges one by one without overlapping and bake.
  6. Next flip the wedges upside down and bake again.
  7. Take the hot crispy wedges and serve with a cheesy dip.

 

We hope that you will try this simple recipe and tell us about your experience.

Stay happy

Stay tuned 

Merci!

ROSENOIR

Bienvenue,

Before we bid a goodbye to summers , let’s try out something fun and new.

And even before that, Are you still scratching your head to understand what the tittle ROSENOIR means, WELL, these are two french words that represent 2 colors pink and black, the most loved colors for feminity and power and we girls should adore them both.

Bringing together the two themes feminism and farewell to summers , we decided to create a look that was carried off beautifully by SANCHITA.

How can summers end without wearing skirts?

Bright-colored flowing  lazy  skirts that accentuates the femininity of a women .And if it’s a pink colored skirt, every women looks extraordinarily elegant and charming in a way.

So, for the look, she is wearing a long skirt along with her favorite black crop top.

Black because it is elegant, it is slimming, it adds glamour and symbolizes power.

She completed her look with a jute tote bag  enhanced with a beautiful crochet lace.

So, if you liked what she is wearing, peep into your cupboards , you will definitely come across such a combination.

You can always bring in some kind of personalized effect to your look, you can either wear something around your neckline, if earrings are not your cup of tea or you can club it with a casual skirt and your favorite sneakers.

GLEE AND GUSTO

So, the first thing Sakshi did after reading more than 100 messages on the Wats App group was opening the mobile app named Zomato. WHY ZOMATO? because the only conclusion she could find after reading all the messages was, a good food experience this time.

Scrolled the list of cafe’s , restaurants, street joints and what not.Her brains stopped working, ideas started crashing down but not before she remembered her last experience with gusto and said, OH! THIS IS THE PLACE.

‘GUSTO KITCHEN AND KAFFE ‘she typed in the group, and got an immediate bold YES from both of them and they were there.

Such an ineffable experience it was, our eyes rolled over the menu cards as we got seated wanting to try everything.We kept it minimal yet filling by ordering HELLS BELLS (CHEF’S FAVOURITE) PIZZA along with SPANAKOPITAS.

The dishes were fancier than their names.The secret ingredient that both of them was CHEESE.

image1

First came in the Spanakopitas for our hankering bellies.Breaking the name, spanakopitas are spinach,raisin and almond fillo fills dipped in a creamy cheesy textured sauce.It was the perfect one as it was easy to divide. LOL. It was served in 6 short glasses half filled with sauce as you can see in the picture.So very quickly we took them and then DAYUMMM

The first bite made us lose our senses  such enchanting flavors of that sauce and the crunchy oil free fills made it the best combination.

image2

We were still licking our fingers every bit of that glass when the huge, gaint pizza was served and as we all know pizza is love at first bite. It is happiness.

image6

So, coming back to the pizza, which was topped with coco sauce, roasted bell peppers, pickled onions,smoked tomato,skarmozza and marinated rocket and smoked chicken.And the biggest slices were on our plates and it was amazing. It would surely satisfy your pizza loving belly.

Food With A Magical Ambiance

Bienvenue,

Welcoming you all to our first food blog. Yes,Food- that’s exactly what our second category will be about.

This is for all you guys who believe there’s always food you can fall back on, no matter what. And, we also know you like food best with a magical ambiance, a few rumbles here and there and of course, some giggling with close ones leaves you with an experience.

Last Sunday, we had a major craving for pasta(everyone’s all time favorite), and we chose to head over to chapter 7, which had been on top of our “Must go places” list for a long time now.

Chapter 7 serves you American, Continental and Lebanese cuisines and is located in the markets of sector 7, Chandigarh, giving it calm and serene surroundings unlike most other cafes in town. Beautiful floral indoors and outdoors, electic seating options, and subtle live music- the decor is an experience for all you art lovers out there!

We ordered ‘The Cream of Mushroom’ soup along with ‘Pesto Pasta’ for we believe, life is a combination of pasta and magic.

IMG-20160730-WA0031

The soup was exotic with prominent but sophisticated flavors.The texture was creamy and the consistency quite thick, just the way it should be, ideal for a monsoon evening. If you’re planning to visit Chapter 7 anytime soon, it’s a must try!

IMG-20160730-WA0033.jpg

It was time to dig in the Pesto Pasta. This vibrant green pasta was such an attraction on the menu itself, and well, it didn’t let us down. To begin with, look at that colour again. Moreover, it was topped with exotic veggies and grated Parmesan cheese which made it all the more difficult to resist. A perfect blend of tangy and creamy, due credits to the black olives , zucchini and yellow bell peppers.

We would strongly recommend this as well.

Guys, if you are planning to check in this beautiful cafe, we have tip for you all- The cafe provides a 15% discount to anyone who comes riding a bicycle. They clearly believe in a greener approach.

And for all you internet addicts, they do have free wi-fi access, but we’d say enjoy the live music and keep your phones aside.

It’s an absolute worth the money experience.
Cost for two: INR 1200 (approx)
