Rice Dumpling Stuffed with Split Moong Beans

It’s still dark when I woke up in the morning. The air was really chilly, too, because last night we left the windows opened. I went to the kitchen and put a pot of water on the stove. We still don’t have water heater, you know, so I need to boil some water for Yaseen

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

Chilli Guava

During rainy season, on the side of the roads, the baskets of fresh guavas are covered with the sparkling droplets of rainwater. The fruits are green and glossy, and I love when I see some of the fruits still have the stems and leaves on them. The leaves have that robust, earthy scent that let

Thai Cashew Nut Salad

The weather has been very cool and gloomy. The inside of my house has not received any sunlight for two weeks now. It doesn’t rain that much, but the sky is really dark. Actually, I like this ambience. It seems awfully cozy and mysterious in a way. My mind wanders to a place like the

Teriyaki Squid

We always love the vibrant scene of our local fish market. It was always crowded, noisy, and colorful. Last Sunday, Sadik and I went to buy fresh seafood. We want to get some squid for dinner sometimes this week. Our fish monger tried to sell us giant squids when we told him we only need

Vegan Bombay Sandwich

Bombay Sandwich 1

I have been incorporating more vegetarian and plant based food in my diet this summer. The reason why I even considered this is because summer really kills my appetite. I have been noticing the boys left the chunks of meat on their plates, too. I guess the meat is too heavy for the stomach at

Oh my God, I am old! It’s my birthday yesterday, and I’m a year older again. But don’t worry, I won’t grow old another 300 years; I promised myself. I am determined to look like this forever hahaha, oh or maybe I should look 10 years younger. Anyway, nothing exciting happened. The boys have been

{5 Minutes Snack} Spiced Paneer

Spiced Paneer 1

My 7 years old boy Yaseen just loves tofu and paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese). When we go grocery shopping at a supermarket, he usually runs to the cold storage section and grabs a few blocks of tofu or paneer by himself. He is very particular about how he wants them to be cooked. For tofu,

Thai Fried Sweet Potato

I first tasted Lays potato chips in middle school. It’s not like I didn’t eat snacks when I was younger. I ate a lot actually. They’re just not in the glossy packages and sold in supermarkets. I bought my snacks from hawkers and street stalls. These snacks were produce-driven food. They’re seasonal, fresh and hot.
