Food is a passion, not only eating but developing recipes with uniqueness and wow factor. Travel and photography fall a close second to food. A gifted recipe developer and food photographer. My blog, Belly Rumbles, was created to share my love of these things with willing readers. The ones that can put up with my rambling babble.

Tacos with a Moroccan Twist

Easy is my middle name when it comes to mid-week meals, and when it comes to dinner this easy taco recipe with a Moroccan twist can’t get simpler. No cooking involved and make your family assemble their own tacos!

Indian Rice Donuts with Fresh Coconut Chutney

These Indian rice doughnuts are very loosely based on a South Indian snack called Medhu Vada. Medhu Vada are made from black gram lentils (urad dal). Instead of using dal as the key ingredient of the Indian rice doughnuts I decided to mix things up a little and use basmati rice.
