Was trying to crack open a coconut for making chutney. Its undoubtedly a herculean task.Trying to crack a coconut without breaking those fragile designer kitchen tiles, is one of a task. And with lots of efforts it finally cracked into two perfect halves. That reminded me of an advertisement ,wherein a man breaks a coconut ,to find coconut crunchies biscuits inside!! In came rushing those childhood memories! Do not get those biscuits anymore. I remember , I had an aunt who used to get those whenever she visited us. Now with those memories , and my sweet tooth , I obviously had the craving for coconut cookies. And I knew I had to bake those to satisfy my sweet coconutty cravings! These turned out to be really crunchy , and ummm.. coconutty!!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
