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

Some people thinks fusion food is like a perfect way to murder the cuisines. If that’s the case, I am one horrible serial killer when it comes to mixing up food. I find thick Thai curries to go well with pastas. I could do so many ways with then, butching up the dishes mercilessly with

Thai Red Fish Curry

Spicy curry and I need no introduction. I grew up eating the kind of food that you would like to tear up just by seeing it. I love the burning hot sensation and how spicy food always delivers the most exciting taste to my mouth. I had to tune my spicy life style down a
