Shopping and Chopping

While shopping for french beans, cluster beans, ladyfingers or similar long green veggies, pick the ones similar in size and shape.
That way you will be able to chop small bundles together easily and the final dish will look more presentable too!


Summer and Refrigerator

Do not forget to adjust the regulator of your refrigerator during summer for more cooling so that the food doesn't get spoiled.
And after summer, do not forget to bring it back to a little lesser cooling. 


Mango: Raw to ripe in the kitchen!

Forgot to keep a raw mango in the refrigerator. A few days later, it had ripened!!!

Cool Hot Mint Tea / Pudina Chai Recipe

Mint Tea / Pudina Chai Recipe
Mint (Pudina in Hindi) serves as a cool blessing in summers, especially with the increasingly soaring temperatures every year. And for those of us who can't do without a cup of tea in the afternoon, mint sure is a boon.

I had mint tea for the first time at Samovar restaurant (Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai) thanks to my dear friend Varsha. And ever since I have become a fan of mint tea!
