There  are  some  foods  that  transport  me  to  another  time  instantly.  Pithey  is  one  such.  I  remember  my  mum  sitting  on  a  low  stool  in  the  kitchen  and  making  these  lovely  crepes  for  hours  together.  The  month  of  January  would   be  middle  of  winter  with  a  chill  in  the  air.  ‘Komor  ta  dhore  geche’,  she  would

It  is  raining  cookies  everywhere.  Magazines, TV shows,  Fb,  Instagram. How  can I  not  bake  some  in  the  season  of  cookies. I  have  ventured  off  the  path  less  travelled. I  chose  the  savoury  variety.  Although   it  still  has  some  sugar,  the  carom  seeds  and  Asafoetida  impart  a  distinct  savoury  taste  to  it. Our  yearly  cookie

There  can  be  some  dipping  sauce,  a

There  is  no  denying  that  at  times  we all  look  for  the  fastest,  easiest,  no  fuss  recipe.  Be  it  a  dessert  or  a  main  course.  And  why  not?  Life  is  busy.  Work,  family,  kids  activities,  sometimes  elderly  parents,  community  commitments  I  could  go  on  and  on.

That  is  when  the  idea  of  savoury  variety  comes  handy.
