When I think of Coffee cakes, I am back in Kerala in my parent’s home in Kochi. I can see myself as the skinny nine-year-old, fussy about food and highly stubborn. I was an anti-social butterfly, truly content with what God had blessed me with. Mum was a super baker and decorator...sadly she wasn’t blessed with a child who enjoyed these. I falsely presumed, you become a mum, you...

Mol each tree is different. You and your...

I love Thai green curries. It encompasses a complex flavour which is a balance of sweet, sour, salty and spice.

In my previous blog posts , I have shared my aversions for road trips with you.

I love Fort Kochi... ---although 20 km away from Mainland Kochi, it is truly an enchanting world. The aroma of the sea breeze, the quaint cafes, the awesome cuisine ,the beautiful shady trees...I just wish to be there now. If you cant go to Goa, to experience the Portuguese culture and tease your taste buds with the fresh juicy sea fare, your next best choice is Fort Kochi. When...

This is not a post for condolences or sympathetic words. This is a memoir written for the first child who dwelled in me for a few short weeks.

Mothers day is a day which has claimed a big place these days. Mothers are everywhere embracing, acknowledging and celebrating motherhood.

But what about mothers who lost children in and outside their womb?

10 years ago around this time, I wa...

When I think of curd rice, the flavors that flood my mind is pure, simple, unassuming , yet kind to the gut and soul.

At this moment for me curd rice equals to my dearest aunt Geechi who was my second mother.

Marriage is a bitter sweet affair. Most often , we hear the stories of brides who left home taking with them a heavy heart and loads of beautiful memories of their home, not t...

When I think of this era, I am usually transported to the Year 12 days. The year a child enters this crucial year, the whole family goes into a tension mode. Mine was not far...
