Split Lentil and Kale Stew

lentil-with-kale-2

I used to hate vegetarian food to the point that I would be really upset when I had to be in all-vegetarian restaurants. Meat was such a big part of the food I grew up eating. I thought a meal without animal proteins was incomplete and unfulfilled. Living in India has changed my perspective about

Tofu and Mushroom with Seaweed Soup

It’s another busy week in this household. Yaseen is having mid-term exams at the moment, and Sadik is in the south for the conference. It’s tough when I have to run the show alone. Usually, Sadik helps me get Yaseen ready for school while I cook them breakfast and pack lunch. Now I have to

Mini Banana Spring Rolls

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

Winter Melon and Yogurt Curry

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. These roadside restaurants are modest, with a light

Stir Fried Roasted Eggplant

Stir Fried Roasted Eggplants 2

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

Thai Ice Black Coffee

Thai Ice Black Coffee 5

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

Thai Sago Pudding

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,

Mee Grati 2

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

Khanon Khrok 1

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

Chilli Guava

chili Guava 1

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
