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! ๐Ÿ˜› )….

A Lazy Lemon Tart

Dear Foodies & Friends, A lot of my recipes involve a little trip down memory lane and this one is no different. During the holidays when I was younger, we would head over to Washington D.C to visit my cousin. These were sight-seeing trips, so every day we’d have an itinerary planned, to visit The…

Moving Mountains & Shifting Hostels

Dear Foodies & Friends, After a blissful, annoyingly short stay at home, I’m back on campus and in a new room. The past few days have been so crazy and intense. We had to move out of our hostel to make way for the new batch of first year students and I had a LOT…

A Slice of Apple Pie

Sometimes I wish I could take my favourite memories, experiences, feelings and just bottle them up. I’d visit them whenever I want, like a pensieve of sorts (forever a Harry Potter fan). One of the wonderful recollections I’d include in this fantasy bottle of mine would be Christmas morning in Ohio. Every year I’d wake…

Ratatouille with Fresh, Clean, Well-Seasoned Perspective

Dear Foodies & Friends, I fell in love with Disney Pixar’s film Ratatouille the first time I saw it. It was quaint, and artistic; a passionate celebration of food and France. I was one of those little kids who had imaginary friends and tea parties. Silly I know, but it gave me comfort. In my…
