Scoop a tasty ladleful of the hot creamy spinach barley pongal and add a small ladleful of chutney on the side. Enjoy this divine combo as that comforting healthy meal. Is your plate ready? Pongal is not something we reserve for the Pongal festival. It becomes our comfort meal in winter, a quick one-pot after work or just the meal we share when stress runs high. So it has considerably moved away from it being that classic venpongal to one we easily swap grains for based on what we have.

Sydney weather is confusing to understand initially. It starts the day off in summer, blazing hot. So you prep for a hot hotter day. At approximately 3 pm or a bit later,  clouds roll in and it pours or hails. It often feels like the weather cannot make up its mind. Finally, if it stays hot for 3 days, we are all warned about the incoming bushfire. As the weather does its drama, there is enough reason to keep some chilled drinks to get through the hot middays. One of my favourites to make is the peach iced tea. This is because peaches are plenty during this season and also I love those f ..read more

Every cuisine tells a story. A story of evolution, cultural twists and delightful local produce that weave together to form the fabric of life around that region. As a practised religion in Kerala, Christianity came along with the early invaders and spice trade merchants to the Kerala coast. Some of them settled in this narrow strip of sundrenched land, engaged with the community and established themselves as a huge part of the community. How do I celebrate Christmas? Christmas in early childhood was for that spiced plum cake that Amma would get. Slowly it evolved to decorating a tree in th ..read more
