Jackfruit Preserve with Just one Ingredient

It’s not hard to guess which ingredient we’re going to be using in this recipe. But before we’re getting into that, I just want to tell you about a place we visited on our recent trip to Kerala, Alnas Jackfruit Restaurant in the town of Manjeri in Malappuram District in Kerala. Sadik discovered it in

Vegan Kimchi

I remember the first time I tried Korean food at a mall near my apartment in Bangkok. It was also the first time I tried Kimchi. And to be honest, I couldn’t decide if I like it. I immediately thought that it was like ‘Som Pak’, a pickled cabbage and green onion dish which we

How to make Thai Ice Milk Tea

Even though I have posted this recipe before, I have a strong urge to tell you about this Thai Ice Milk Tea again. Maybe it’s because of the weather. The cold breezes parade into our house when we open a door to a balcony in the morning. I love the fresh air of the dawn

Mushroom with Yellow Bean Paste

The weather has turned boiling hot in my city. It’s strange because in the morning the temperature is quite cool. On Sunday, when we made a spontaneous trip out of town, we were surprised to see that it was only 14 C in the morning, and the mercury rose throughout the day, so by the

I’m excited about the coming trip. It’s that time of the year again when we can drive down south to visit our family in Kerala. As usual, I will be getting something for the kids, Yaseen’s cousins. My in-laws don’t encourage us to spoil them, but we can’t help because we want to do just

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

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

Thai Sago Pudding

Thai Sago Pudding 1

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,

Kanji (Kerala Rice Porridge)

Kanji 5

Have you ever play the game called Opposite? Yaseen taught us this game. We always play it while we are on a long road trip. In Opposite game, you are supposed to ask each other the yes-or-no questions. It’s a good way to learn more about someone. The fun part of the game is you

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
