~Chinese 5-spice Broccoli Cheddar Soup~ 

“Soups are cozy” (A.D.Posey) and its true, Soups are amazing and the very best friend of winters. Nothing makes your appetite churn more than the wafting aromas of a simmering soup just bubbling away. I love soups for so many reasons; they are easy, quick and extremely healthy. Furthermore, they are a world of discoveries…

~Japanese Teppanyaki~

Japanese cuisine is very much influenced by the seasonal change and geography. To the most of us Japanese food may seem somewhat bland and eccentric, but the freshness, balance of flavours and presentation of food as well as textures are of paramount significance. The Japanese cuisine is evidently very much different in many ways from…

“India has a certain magic because of the colonial relationship” (Lizzie Collingham). I love my histories “the magical, marvellous food on our plate, this sustenance that we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy. To eat with reckless abandon, without conscience, without knowledge; folks,…

~Grilled Tikka Boti Curry~

“I think music, in my opinion, is not about motivation in the way — it’s a running base. It’s art. And my whole philosophy of music is different. It’s almost like cooking and serving to people, seeing them smile and enjoying the Food really” (A.R.Rahman) and I couldn’t agree more. When you cook and serve…

~ Asian Pasta Twist ~

M.F.K Fisher was on point when he said that “with our gastronomical growth will come, inevitability, knowledge and perception of a hundred other things, but mainly ourselves”. Food is extremely multidimensional and it’s something that shapes us, identifies us, our cultures and in the end our society. The past decade has seen a rise in…

~Classic Biryani~ 

From the finest collection of the Royal Nawabs and Mughals of India comes the ever exquisite “Biryani”; a dish that presents itself in all its royalty.  Johnny Luzzini very accurately once said, “cooking is about imbibing different cultures and putting them in a plate on the table” and Biryani is exactly that. Indigenous to India,…

If you have never read Shauna Niequist’s “BitterSweet”, you have surely missed out on a beautiful book and though it is hard for me to actually pick out one favourite part from the book, because I just love the whole book, I like to share one excerpt regarding autumn and all the delights that come…

~Chicken Amber Curry~

Robert Frost is one of my favourite poets in English Literature. “The Road Not Taken” is perhaps his most infamous of poems, but he wrote many others just like it.
