    Chemmeen Ularthiyathu

    I can view stretch marks on my thighs…. Huh! What? This came into my whatsapp inbox the other day. The lanky bordering on thin fifteen year old boy sent it to me just before his ICSE Biology paper. From his

    Cream Kadai Chicken

    Anecdote Sharmita and I are actually quite poles apart. The main difference is that she is slim and trim, ahem, let’s not go that way about yours truly. We almost never agree on movies. We also most often disagree on

  • Mango Chilli Fish

    Mango Chilli Fish

    This morning Jeet was informing us about the leadership session talks that he enjoyed last evening at a media event. Daniel Pink, Gary Kristen, Prahlad Kakkad….discussions, anecdotes, cook-alongs were the topics in the flow of the conversation. It somehow meandered to a debate on overcoming fears, the why and how of it. Of course, first […]

    Mexican Quinoa Salad

    In the last decade the magic called the secret of the universe became popular. The secret, a hugely published one, and thank God for that, said that if you wish for something earnestly and expressed it to the universe, then the players and the powers of the universe will make it happen for you. We […]

  • Pumpkin Cranberry Pistachio Salad

    Pumpkin Cranberry Pistachio Salad

    I quite enjoy having pumpkin. My BFF absolutely detests it. Nothing in life is a given. Pumpkins are good for freckles. Pumpkins are 90% water retained and barely calorific. Like the Irish rotund pumpkins can be carved to make will-o’-the wisps or jack-o’- lanterns. Pumpkins are also gluten free. Now you tell me, why can […]

    Chicken Kurma With Sesame Seeds & Melon Seeds

    I had read this somewhere long back. A line that stayed in my mind. The little seed knew that for it to grow it had to be dropped in dirt and covered in darkness and struggle to reach the light. Seeds of ideas. Seeds of thoughts. Seeds of actions. Seeds of work. The little beginnings […]

Though in India and Pakistan we do eat un-hulled pulses as in the ones with the skins intact, hulling I think adds to the digestive ease […]

    Stuffed Spiny Gourd or Stuffed Kakrol

    For some strange pompous reason I assumed Momordica dioica is Bengali. Kakrol is what we call it in upstate West Bengal and I kind of thought no other community even knows of this bristly balsam pear commonly called spiny gourd. Well, please do not take offence as honestly it is not really a luscious piece of lamb or a […]
