Top Of My Mind :-)

There are times when some things, ingredients, vessels; basically anything from your kitchen become your obsessions and you use it for many days. I remember there was a cheese grater that I bought and I loved it so much that I started grating even onions, garlic, ginger and what not with it- it was that grater only that used to be on Top Of My Mind. Just like that, there are a few things that I am sharing with you all lovely people that have become my current favourites or obsessions.

Yellow ice cube tray:
As you all know how much I love yellow and now when it is summer here I am totally in love with this cute,flowery and bright yellow ice tray. I used it for frozen chutney (HERE) and it is also very good for jellies :)

Black Pepper-crushed and whole:
This has totally occupied my mind these days. I am putting this spicy tiny spice in almost everything I am cooking- tea, rice, parathas, and pastas. Amazing flavour and aroma :) Isn’t it?

Black and whites:
I know it is summer but some combinations are like Jodi made in heaven. Black and white is one among them. I have been using black and white plates, bowls and cups in so many of food photographs. You can see here, here and here. Black and white is such a “wow” combination.

And finally, Patak’s Chilli Pickle:
I love spicy food, the spicier the better. I tried so many pickles here in London (in vain) to satisfy my spicy tongue ;) but couldn't find the right one; until I laid my eyes on Patak’s pickle. I find this pickle irresistible. You can buy it from here.

Hope you all like this post. What are your current favourites? Anything in the kitchen/food world that has been your current obsession. Please share :)
