Here’s to the New Year

Dear Foodies & Friends, Can you believe 2018 is already over? Looking back, this year has been a little bittersweet. I got through my worst semester of law school, tackled my first culinary internship at Sofitel in Mumbai (more about that in a future post ) and tried to get over some of my fears…

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…

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…

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! 😛 )….

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…

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…
