Today I bring to you a quintessential list of restaurant style dishes which you can whip up at your own kitchen in a jiffy! They are not only immensely delish, but also are very easy to make at home!

15 Restaurant Style Recipes to make at homeWith the world’s current situation, it may seem to many of us that our lives have come to a standstill! We already have had enough discussions on the ongoing pandemic and I’m sure most of us are hooked to the news channels keeping yourself updated with the latest status. I was doing the same earlier and then the anxiety went to a level beyond which I was not able to bear. Hence, I decided to look at the brighter side even when everything seems dark! Wondering what the brighter side could be? There could be many but I can give you couple of examples; this stay-at-home mandate, which is the current reality for most of us, has given us the opportunity to spend time with family; isn’t this something which we always missed, thanks to our super-busy life, and severely longed for it? Plus, we can also use some extra time to invest in one of our long-forgotten hobbies which we used to love to do during our younger days and have always blamed our hectic life for not going back to it! To maintain our emotional balance, we need to focus on tasks which keep our mind engaged in positive ways; trust me this works!

For the same reason, I bring to you today my favorite restaurant dishes which I make at home quite frequently as I feel that we can adjust these recipes to our liking if made at home. And there could not be a better time than this to whip these up in your cozy kitchen and enjoy a hearty meal with the entire family! All these recipes are simple to make and covers an array of cuisines starting from my very own Indian cuisine and includes Thai, Italian, American and many more classic restaurant dishes! I have tried my best to create a versatile list capturing vegetarian recipes, chicken recipes as well as the popular appetizers and desserts to enable you to design an end to end fine dining experience right inside your home with all your loved ones! Cooking has always been my passion and I can never imagine my life without this essential task needed for our survival; additionally I have started investing time on one of my old hobbies which is knitting! I used to love knitting while in school but somehow it took a backseat during the adulting days and now I am happy to get back to it! Will share my amateurish knitting result in one of my future posts just to embarrass myself! For now, I will leave you with the list which you have been waiting for long! Happy cooking!
