‘Haath  Banchiye”,  Careful  with  your  hand,  my  mum’s  cautionary  voice  still  rings  in  my  ear.  Grated  coconut  in  packets  with  sweetened  and  unsweetened  options  were  not  available  back  in  the  day.   It  was  customary  to  use  freshly  grated  coconut  be  it   in  curries  or  desserts. We  have  since  moved  forward.  Brightly  coloured  high

Happy  new  year  friends.  I  feel it  is  only  natural  that  we  start  the  year  with  something  sweet.  Are  you  with  me  on  this? It  is  citrus  season,  and  I’m  going  with  the  oranges.  Growing  up  I  have  so  many  fond  memories  of   winter  food.  Looking  back  the  winters  were  very  mild,  but  we

    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

    We  had  snow  twice  already.  It  didn’t  stay  though.  The  garden  is  now  full  of  yellow  leaves  some  naked  branches,  an  errant  flower  in  a  corner  in  between  a  bunch  of  dead  stems.  The  raspberry  patch  is  a  different  story  altogether.  These  autumn  raspberries  are  flourishing  everyday  like  rebels. The  fruit  heavy  branches

  What  shake?  I  know  your  thoughts,  exactly.  Chickoo,  Sapota.  Nope,  never  heard  that  before.  Well,  I  don’t  blame  you.  It  grows  only  in  tropical  climates  like  India,  Thailand,  Vietnam,  Southern  Mexico,  Central  America.  It  has  been  cultivated  in  Florida  in  the  US. I  was  in  the  city  recently.  The  food  blogger  inside  me  always

    ‘Twas  the  month  after  January,  when  all  through  the  house Not  a creature  was  stirring,  not  even  the  scale.

  Where  would  we  be  without  the  Sun?  Take  a  moment  and  think  about  it.  Wouldn’t  it  be  safe  to  say  that  our  whole  existence  would  be  at  stake?  Our  ancestors  realized  pretty  early  on  that  Sun  is  the  most  important  of  all  the  cosmic  bodies.  Hence  every  Sun  centric  event  became  important  spiritual  and

  Smita  picked  up  the  parcel  that  was  left  at  her  doorstep  by   Canada  Post.  It  was  more  bulky  than  heavy.  Standing  on  the  snow  covered  steps,  she  visualized  a  beautiful,  pleasant,  sunny  day.  Her  mother  sitting  on  the  low  stool  carefully  measuring  each  ingredient,  first  running  her  fingers  swiftly  through  the  nuts  or
