Crunch your way!!!

A mixture of delicious and healthy ingredients. A choice of infinite combinations. Making it a great breakfast option with a lot of crunches. Yes, I am talking about “GRANOLA.” I have tried a few options that are available in the market. However, till date, none of them have impressed me with the taste, level of…

Shades of Green

No, I am not talking about an element on the Periodic table. It’s the green healthy powder I got recently introduced to…Moringa powder by ZolaFoods.

Food defines a locale

Traveling opens up a whole new side of you. I have been lucky to have traveled within and outside my country. I love using public transport especially trains and enjoy all the simple, local food every stop had to offer. Food gives you a better understanding of a place. It is best reflected in its…

Turn to home for inspiration

Whenever I feel lost, I take a walk down the memory lane for some inspiration. Born and brought up in Assam I have always had a special spot for our indigenous cuisine. Assamese cuisine is one such cuisine which has not been explored much. And my idea is to create dishes with a little twist…

Memory can conjure up a cake!!

Me, myself and Pesto

With so many variations of pesto available in the market and over the internet, I was a little apprehensive about posting my version. However, it would be unfair to keep this simple and delicious pesto recipe to myself. I discovered this recipe by chance, as I made a desperate attempt to save a huge bunch…
