Prawn Curry with Rice Vermicelli

The other day, I had a long conversation with my friend about the quality of food we’re eating.

The chat

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

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
