Why my grandparents are my biggest inspiration

My Appacha and Ammachi. My biggest inspiration. I'm a Malayalee, born and raised in Bangalore. My grandparents moved to Bangalore somewhere in the 1930's and have been here ever since. My father and his siblings were born and raised in the city. I've heard stories from family elders on how the transition from Kerala to... Continue Reading →

Our Little Simba

With tears of joy, and a nervous hint, I told your daddy, that this was it. Mom and dad we were to be, Of a little snowball, we couldn't wait to see. Your little kicks, and wiggles inside, Had me giggling, and dreaming of you, with me beside. Daddy left soon, because he couldn't stay,... Continue Reading →

Smoked Afghani Kabab

I'm someone who totally loves the smoky flavour. Be it chips, meat, vegetables, anything and everything just tastes better smoked up! 😛 😀 (Pun intended) But, using charcoal at home seemed too tedious, and messy, so I kept procrastinating the idea, until one day, my oh so brilliant husbaaanddd  (hate this word!) burnt coconut shell...

It's a no-nonsense super easy recipe. The only time consuming part would be the frying of... Continue Reading →

We both love travelling, exploring new cultures and trying the local cuisine. On one such adventurous afternoons in Krabi, we rented a bike,... Continue Reading →

Butter Chicken

I started experimenting in the kitchen sometime during my college days, and butter chicken was one of the first recipes I ever tried. Just that back then, even Maggie making was a big deal, so I simply chose to buy a 'heat and eat' pack of butter chicken and rave about my cooking skills! I've... Continue Reading →

Burmese Khaosuey

I was introduced to this dish at a team lunch at the JW Kitchen, Marriott. I was always a big fan of soupy noodles, but this was another level altogether. The burst of flavours hit me in the head, and from then on I've been the biggest Khaosuey ambassador the world has ever known :P... Continue Reading →

The Rose Apple Tree

Now as I stand, brittle and weak, Conspicuous no more, yet optimistically meek. I remember those days with yearning and grief, The love He gave was surreal, though brief. I’m not from this city, but I liked it here, Cause the birds and butterflies lived without fear. I had plenty to drink, and sweet stories... Continue Reading →
