Chia Pudding with Salted Coconut Cream and Mango

I know I’m very much behind the trend, but I’ve recently discovered chia seeds. These tiny seeds become one of my kitchen essentials because I can use them as a healthy substitute in a number of dishes. Also, I don’t actually need to cook them. They’re just needed to be soaked, and voila, you have

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

It’s still dark when I woke up in the morning. The air was really chilly, too, because last night we left the windows opened. I went to the kitchen and put a pot of water on the stove. We still don’t have water heater, you know, so I need to boil some water for Yaseen

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

Split Lentil and Kale Stew

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

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 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,

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
