If  there  is  something  of  a ” folkart”  in  cuisines,  then  “Bori”  would  definitely  be  a  frontrunner.  These  tiny  delicacies  are  protein  packed,  spicy  and  gossip  filled.  If  they  could  only  talk!  Traditionally  the  village  women  would  sit  together  and  spent  the  afternoon  making  ‘Bori”,  at  the  same  time  exchanging  all  the  juicy  happenings  in

An  Indian  meal  is  incomplete  without  some  sort  of  lentil  preparation.  Be  it  thick  and  spicy,  or  light  and  runny. It  may  have   vegetables  incorporated  in  it,  or  lentil  fritters.  Each  province  in  India  probably  could  boast  a  speciality  lentil  dish. The  permutation  and  combination  of  herbs  and  spices  are  so  many  that  the  same

Like  it  or  not,  August  is  coming  to  an  end.   The  summer  holidays  will soon  be  done.  The  stores  have  been  advertising  ‘back  to  school’  shopping  for  some time  now.

The  word   ‘ Waffles’  conjures  a  picture  of  a  plate  piled  high  with  these  beauties  ,  topped  with  cream,  some  berries  and  honey  dripping  down  the  corners.  Breakfast  is  served.  All  is  well  unless  there  are  family  members  or  friends  that  have  dietary  restrictions. That  is  when  the  idea  of  savoury  variety  comes  handy.

  In  my  world  rice  can  be  synonymous  with  life. The  grains  of  rice  are  so  intertwined  with  the  thread  of  life  that  by  pulling  on  one,  you  may  fray  the  other.  Rice  occupies  a  sacred  place  in  my  culture. No  important  milestone  can  be  complete  without  rice.  The  first  solid  food  given  to  a

  The  white  butterfly  flew  aimlessly,  sitting  on  the  Prairie  crocus  once  and  on  the  Anemones  next,  going  back  to  the  crocuses  again. The  Robins  and  the  Blackbirds  are  tree  hopping.  It  is  spring  here  in  the  Prairies.  The  season  of  budding  and  blooming,  of  nesting  and  nursing.  The  season  of  a  new  beginning. “Chawlo  garite

    Buy  her  a  gift  or  give  her  an  experience?  It  was  a  hard decision  for  mother’s  day  over  the  weekend. “Mooch  Moochey  hoyecchhe”.  It’s  nice  and  crispy,  she  said  after a  bite  in  the  Pitha,  the  deep  creases  on  the  back  of  her  hands  almost  matching  the  design  on  the  Pithas.  She  looked
