If you are living abroad, you will understand the struggle of making your kitchen feel like home. Whenever I travel back to India from Thailand, I stuff my luggage with food items we don’t normally get here. I often pack dried calamari, shrimp paste, chili paste, condiments, local snacks and sweet. Luckily, we have a

If you’ve been with us for a while, you probably know that we just love deep-fried food. We deep fry everything, from Oreo to a whole big fish. The other day, Yaseen even invented his version of Deep Fried Marshmallow, which I’m going to share a recipe with you soon. And although we always try to

When we drive down to the south of India, usually a 2 days journey, we eat at the restaurants on the highways. As we cross a border to state of Kerala, we look the stalls that serve traditional meals, meals in banana leaves. Sadik calls them Nadan Bakshanam.

I cook all the time. My kitchen counter is like the unfinished chapters in my current novel. It’s really chaotic. The ingredients spread all over, and a knife is covered with blood on a chopping board. Okay, I’m kidding. No blood. But yeah, it’s not pretty because I cook all day while I’m trying to

Sadik and I decided to buy fresh vegetable on daily basis from the local stores instead of buying everything on the weekend from supermarkets. We still go to supermarkets on the weekend to get other groceries and snack, but seasonal and local produce are just on the sides of the road outside our apartment. We

Why coffee is so expensive? I don’t really like coffee, but my brain starts to depend on it. The first thing I do in the morning is making a cup of black coffee. No sugar. I wait until my coffee is lukewarm and drink the whole thing in one shot. When we go out, I

When I was in high school, living away from home, I rented a house in the city. Actually, it was more like a shop. I remember that I didn’t have a front door, but I had this big steel shutter which made a massive rolling roar when someone came in and out. The property was

Thai desserts can act as breakfast because of how light and nourishing they are. When you visit the fresh markets in Thailand as early as 4am, you will see several dessert stands under the hanging yellow light bulbs. The tables are usually spread with colorful desserts from coconut jelly to the delightful drops of smooth,

Hi guys! We have been busy with the monsoon trek, and I completely forgot that this blog is malnourished by the delicious cooking. Last weekend we went on another trek which I was completely soaked in the rain the whole trip. When I got home, I was down with a massive headache. Anyway, another big

So I haven’t told you guys that Sadik might be gluten intolerant. He hasn’t officially been tested, but after talking to his doctor about certain allergies, we are kind of sure about it. The first thing my husband said when he doubted that he might be allergic to gluten was he’s gonna miss all the
