Handi – Street Style Potato Canapes.

Living for over a decade in Bombay, food sold off the streets of Bhendi Bazaar embodied an immortal relationship with my college/work life – an affair so absolute and unconditional. A solitary place to remind ourselves that we are so broke yet intoxicated with simple joys. While meat dominated the scene, Chana Bateta stall near the mosque saw a rush of people from…

Festive Peanut Butter Cookies

I love this time of the year. There is festive cheer in the air alongwith too much excitement in the house over Little A’s birthday just after Christmas.

This desi heart always crave for one dish off the menu that I must have eaten a gazillion times and no shame in accepting that I will be that person on the table to order butter chicken everytime…

Cheese and Zaatar Bread
