Corn Salsa with Prawn Chips

corn salsa and prawn chips 1

Corn Salsa with Prawn Chips I found out that there are prawn chips available in India a year ago, and since then, I have been buying them every now and then. The prawn chips here are very similar to what we have in Thailand, but it’s slightly inconvenient that there’s no a ready-to-eat version. These chips

The other day, Yaseen asked me what weather we’re in right now. I was speechless for a whole minute because I truly didn’t know what kind of weather we were in at the moment. I told him “Well, we’re kind of in the end of rainy season and on the way to winter.” He seemed

Miso Soup

Miso Soup

I love miso soup that is served along with the meal in Japanese restaurants. My boys absolutely hate it so it benefits me because I can have two extra bowls of soup every time. At home, I serve miso soup selfishly in a big bowl just for me when I make Japanese Inspired meal. I
