Prawn Gyoza

Dear Foodies & Friends, I LOVE dumplings of all kinds-momos, gyoza, potstickers, Polish pierogies, the list is endless. The perfect ones are full of filing with a thin, delicate outer skin; chewy yet tender. So delicious, if done right. During my second year one of the stalls on campus sold chicken momos, which naturally got…

Gnocchi, Bacon & Peas

Dear Foodies & Friends, I’m about a year and a half away from graduating, and while half of me absolutely dreads the thought of ‘adulting’ in the big wide world, the other half is incredibly excited about what the future will hold. I love to travel, and my primary motivation for not being a couch…

Bamia Laham (Okra Stew That’s So Finger-Licking Good!)

Dear Foodies & Friends, One of the things I love most about the weekend is looking forward to a big, cozy Sunday dinner with my family. We love big, bold flavours, and its usually a meal that’ll ensure everyone’s knocked out early. 😛 Back when I still lived at home, weekends were the only time…

Cherry Clafoutis

Dear Foodies & Friends, This summer I visited the beautiful, Indo-French town of Pondicherry for two days of inspiration and relaxation. I have been to Pondicherry at least five times now, and every time I visit, the experience is something entirely new and exciting. We started our morning early at the beach, at a time…

Breezy Breakfast Bowl

Dear Foodies & Friends, These past few weeks have been long and rough, but I finally decided to take a breather and head out to the city for some lunch! I can’t tell you how AMAZING it felt to get away after being cooped up in one place for so much time. The day was…

A Very Stuffed Omelette

Dear Foodies & Friends, Exams are OVER! I’m so happy and relieved at the same time. Finally some semblance of normalcy. On the downside, my sleep pattern is all out of order. Last night I woke up at three in the morning, and spent a good hour walking around the corridors listening to music. You…

Aloo Sabji [The Potato Life Chose Me]

Dear Foodies & Friends, Exams are right around the corner and I am FREAKING out! I’m still utterly clueless and confused about everything, so hopefully by some miracle (or two), and with several mugs of hot tea, things will fall into place. Hopefully. I’ve had to take on some additional responsibilities on campus, so I…

Green Beans & Lots of Coconut

Dear Foodies & Friends, Back in June during the last week of my vacation, I went slightly loco in a supermarket and bought lots of colorful plates and bowls for the blog. Thanks to baggage constraints, much of it was left at home. I have been teased on many occasions for packing so much luggage,…

True Love is a Steaming Hot Bowl of Rasam.

Dear Foodies & Friends, FINALLY. After a three-week slump, some introspection and a lot of self motivation (“you will STOP being such a potato”) I’m back on the blog with my favorite recipe in the entire universe! Rasam with steamed rice (and vegetables, but we’ll leave those for a future post or two! 😛 )….
