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

Milo Milkshake

Milo Milkshake 3 small

I still drink Milo. Milo and Ovaltine are chocolate and malt powder mix like Boost, Horlicks and Bournvita in India. We get Milo here in an imported section of our supermarket. These things are popular with kids, so some of my friends think it’s weird that I still drink it all the time. To be honest,

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

Thai Young Coconut Drink

Thai Sweet Coconut Drink 8

Summer is approaching. In a way, it’s already here because of Global Warming it seems. But school summer vacation is on the way. Yaseen is going to have 2 months long vacation where we will probably do the best out of it. Summer in India is harsh, especially in a place where we live. It’s

{5 Minutes Snack} Spiced Paneer

Spiced Paneer 1

My 7 years old boy Yaseen just loves tofu and paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese). When we go grocery shopping at a supermarket, he usually runs to the cold storage section and grabs a few blocks of tofu or paneer by himself. He is very particular about how he wants them to be cooked. For tofu,

Almond Milk

Almond Milk 7

Tell me something… do you guys believe in cold-pressed juice? I think cold-pressed juice is healthy, and I’ve known its claim to be more nutritious than regular juice. Cold-pressed juice believers explained to me once that the blades in a regular juicer generate heat which destroys natural nutrients and enzymes in the juice, so cold-

Steamed Rice Balls with Coconut

rice ball with coconut 1

I always wonder why we called coconut grater “Kra Tai Khood Ma Praw” in Thai. It basically means a rabbit for grating coconut. I couldn’t find any connection between coconuts and rabbits whatsoever. And rabbits don’t eat coconut, as far as I know. Anyway, in Asian households, we cook with coconut a lot. Coconut is used

Isaan Pumpkin and Mushroom Stew

Pumpkin and Mushroom Curry 3

I love food that tells you about the season. The kind of food that boasts local best produce at the moment. Now it’s winter, and it means pumpkin. In Thailand, we are taught to savor pumpkin because it is rich with vitamins and it is also a good source of carbohydrate. I remember my elementary

Thai Fried Sweet Potato

Thai sweet potato fritters 1

I first tasted Lays potato chips in middle school. It’s not like I didn’t eat snacks when I was younger. I ate a lot actually. They’re just not in the glossy packages and sold in supermarkets. I bought my snacks from hawkers and street stalls. These snacks were produce-driven food. They’re seasonal, fresh and hot.
