Thai Cashew Nut Salad

Yum Cashew nuts 13

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

teriyanki squid 7

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

Spicy Seafood Meatballs

Spicy Seafood Meatballs 1

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

Thai sweet potato fritters 1

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.

Butter and Sugar Toast

Sugar Toast 5

Butter should be used instead of an alarm clock to wake people up. I hate the high pitch ringing that arrogantly rocks my house every 6 am. But I think we should wake people up in the gentle ways. Something soft like butter, maybe, can persuade my family to get out of bed easily. It’s simple.

Sweet Sesame Chicken Wings

Sweet Sesame Chicken Wings 1

I love chicken wings. It’s the ultimate party food of all time. My favorite chicken wing is the BBQ ones, but this Asian twist will do, when I run out of BBQ sauce. I love the nutty flavor of toasted sesame seeds. It gives that crunch to the soft and juicy wings. It’s super easy to

Dabeli Sandwich

Dabeli Sandwich 1

When I was first arrived in India, one of the dishes I fell in love with right away was Dabeli. It’s the delectable spiced potato sandwich in a perfectly crispy grilled bun. I have Dabeli very often, but street food here is not all that great when it comes to hygiene. A few weeks ago

Corn Dog Muffins

Corn dog 3

So yesterday I made some cornbread that was so soft, light and delicious. I forgot to mention that I added a little something on the side… some hot dogs! I cut them up and put them in half of the muffins. And I baked them along with the cornbread. They came out lovely! And delicious. I served them
