Celebrate Puja with the best curry in Town!!

During Durga Puja as you walk through the crowded streets, the city comes alive with revelry and devotion towards Goddess Durga. As a young child, I remember holding my Papa’s finger taking small steps while raising my heels to catch a glimpse of Durga Ma’s embellished avatar. This experience would entrench itself in my memory…

Experimental Pesto Sauce to the Rescue!!

For a very long time, I had refrained myself from experimenting with certain dishes and sauces. The pesto was definitely one of them. I always stuck with the classic recipe. However, I once watched Siba on Food Network prepare pesto dressing with avocado. It looked refreshing and light. I still have to try her version…

Spice Up the Vegan in You!!

Coming from a place where you get the hottest chillis in the world my love for peppers is inevitable. Even though the recipe I have shared is with sweet peppers, the appeal of a hot chili pickle is unsurmountable. The aroma that fills the kitchen as you roast them is just mouth watering. Any sweet…

Inspired Food and the harmony of things explained

When you enter a restaurant you expect good food, ambiance, and service. When all the three are met and you feel satisfied. This is exactly what happens to me…usually. But this weekend, my hubby surprised me with his find. I didn’t know where we were heading. At a point, I told him, “I think we…

#Friendship: The Thrills and Frills of Chaat

A Jhola(satchel) bag with mirror work, a colorful umbrella, junk jewelry, a few books in hand, a confident stride over…..the ‘potholes’ on the road to save her favorite pair of Kohlapuris(a particular style of sandals named after the place of its origin). Yes!! That’s your quintessential college or university going girl. Every girl who has…

Happier gut leads to a happier healthier you!!

In the field of agriculture, there’s a saying – “There is nothing called waste.” One’s waste can be some else’s raw material. Nature is our best teacher as it teaches us how every bit of creation when ceases to exist can help create something different. It is our intervention that can lead to a creation…

It’s time to fix your breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day ignoring which can affect your concentration and leave you cranky for the rest of the day. In my case, I would end up binge eating for the rest of the day. Post child birth with no family to share the household chores, it was tough going…

Dipped to Chill!!

This is my second post on Tea. I didn’t want to share the picture of a cup of green tea and talk about it because green tea comes across as a bland beverage. But green tea can be fun too. There are so many ways of including it into our diet, and actually, drinking is…

Uplift your mood with #tati crepes

People from the Middle-east have a special affinity towards fragrances. They can be mild or strong depending on the event. It is also an important part of their cuisine. Different spices or condiments are used to impart aroma into a dish. The most prominently used aromas are saffron, orange blossom water, rose, cardamon, etc., These aromas…

Show some love with Chutney…

Our typical evening snacks would include chapatti roll, cakes, cookies etc, along with a steaming mug of chocolate milk, which later got replaced with tea as we grew up. Once in a while when we had guests or mom got generous and wanted to break the monotony, samosas, and kachoris (deep fried, unhealthy snacks) were…

The Tea Journal begins here…

It is very natural for me to love and admire ‘Tea’. Growing up in Assam and in a family that owned a tea garden my love for tea was inevitable. For us, tea is not just a drink or a plant…….it’s a lifestyle and for many a source of living. If you have ever visited a…

Drizzle some inspiration…

It’s not that we must remember to care about our planet on just one day “Earth Day”. I believe it’s like a reminder to be a little more selfless, a little more caring, a little more aware and make as many small changes as possible in our own lives. It will lead us to a…
