Quarantine Party

The quarantine phase has been quite rough on almost all of us. It did save many lives from the deadly virus, but also brought out a lot of subdued toxicity. There is only so much time one can spend with certain set of people, some bridges have too much water underneath and are abandoned, lest…

On and Off the Trending Train

Like I mentioned before, I am not too keen on cooking unless I have cravings or am hungry. Food fads and trends don’t really excite me too much, unless I wish to craft around it. Although I am a coffee-holic, it’s too much work to just make a cup of coffee that I’d love in…

Fancy A Break?

A more traditional Indian breakfast, depending on the region you come from, is light yet filling. You’d barely find many people consuming cornflakes back in the days, but now our on-the-fast-lane life is making corn our first meal. (Pretty much like beefing up cattle to be slaughtered. Ironic, isn’t it?) To get kids eating some…

Breaking Bread

Cravings are inevitable, when you are explicitly told a stern no. When things were freely available, I’d usually avoid breads and fruits not because I don’t eat them, but because I am lazy. There is always a weekend to stock up, especially when you have a list to stick to. But when you become the…

One For the Home

Ever since I’ve been confines of my home, I’ve realized that my consumption of fluids has reduced drastically. Leave alone the occasional beer that I’d have over weekends, which is now completely dry in my locality, I seem to have completely forgotten to consume water even, and no, I don’t rest my hind all day…

Where Were You?

What do you look forward to when you plan a vacation? If you ask me, I’m there for the culture, colors, language and, of course, food! Sri Lankan cuisine is paradise for sea food lovers and Malayalis alike. Why Malayalis? Because it does seem like a gastronomical extension to the south of India. While the…

What’s Your Poison?

Tea makes everything better. ~Bindi Irwin Never trust anyone who doesn’t drink coffee. ~AJ Lee People have got to learn: if they don’t have cookies in the cookie jar, they can’t eat cookies. ~Suze Orman Give me liberty or a bran muffin! ~Colin Mochrie “Un croissant, s’il vous plaît.” (French, one croissant, please) Too few…

Older, Wiser, Stronger

The first few days of the year often take me on the road to memory lane, it is my time to look back and be grateful. I turned 33 in 2017, and it was a year of new beginnings. As I reminisce, I seem to be stuck on this one picture taken on my birthday….

Valentine Love

Two days too late, but I’ll post a Image  for the day of love anyway. Most of us crave that first morning cup of coffee. Whether its true love or a habit that refuses to go away, well that is a very personal call. So here is my ode to the lovely cup that helps…

Steaming Hot Ulundu Vadas!

As a true-blue south Indian, we live, breath and stuff certain kinds of food. Cut us and we’d bleed sambhar and filter coffee! So a sight of piping hot medu vadas, and I couldn’t keep my camera away. I don’t know if you think it drool worth, but it tasted just as heavenly as it…
