Howdy folks! Miss me?
I know it's been a while and I am sorry about the radio silence on this side. Big hugs to several of you who reached out to ask me if I'm doing okay πŸ€—πŸ€—
.

I have big-ish news. I have decided to go back to the corporate world and dip my toes into the murky world of engineering again. As it turns out, I've fallen head first into my new job and it's keeping me super duper busy. It has been a struggle with early mornings, long commutes and late nights. The biggest help is my mom who arrived to take care of N while we get adjusted to the new schedule. She's keeping us happy, fed and healthy with meals like this Mutton Chukka Varuval (recipe is in blog archives).
.
.
I'm looking forward to this new chapter in my life. I am gonna do everything I can to make it work and I'm incredibly happy for the support my family gives me. But as anyone who is in a high pressure job knows, it is tough (no doubt), and a delicate balancing act. .
.
Now to the big question about what happens to my blog? I still have a few projects to be completed and I still intend to cook, shoot and post recipes whenever I have time.
Any working/blogging mommas have any tips and suggestions for doing it all, do let me know in the comments or DM me!!
That's it for now πŸ™β€β€

Inspiration is everywhere! As evidenced by this gorgeous color palette of blues, greys and greens that I spied @sanantoniozoo today 😍❀❀

We've been exploring our city and eating out this weekend, but I can't wait to get back to working on recipes during the week. .

The heat index just keeps rising over the days and the only way to stay cool and hydrated is with copious amounts of fresh lemonade. One of my favorite ways to jazz up lemonade is to use special syrups to sweeten it. This one from the archives is lemonade sweetened with fresh nectarine ginger syrup. Sweet, fruity and gingery - just perfect to #beattheheat

We're on our way to Houston right now, but let me show you what I made last evening.
Aloo tikki chaat for the win, you guys!! πŸ™Œ
.
.
Potato pan fritters (aloo tikki) topped with whipped yogurt, spicy-sweet tamarind chutney, spicy green chutney, red onions and crunchy sev (fried gram flour ribbons) and lots of chaat masala went down well with our evening chai. .
.
A favorite Indian #streetfood, this aloo tikki chaat is so easy to make at home too. Do you love chaat?

#newblogpost MALABAR CHICKEN BIRYANI
There are innumerable methods to make the ubiquitous biryani, but the Kozhikodan or Malabar biryani is my favorite.
.
.
It is made by layering an aromatic and herby chicken masala, fluffy rice, fried onions, nuts, raisins and herbs in a large pot which is then sealed and cooked on "dum" (steam infused) to meld all the lovely flavors together.
.
.
This toothsome biryani is literally the stuff of legends, try it next weekend!

Today's agenda includes jam making using the fresh peaches that we picked on Friday.
.
.
Peach picking is our favorite summer activity and there's something very satisfying about eating fruit straight off the tree πŸŒ³πŸ‘πŸ‘β€
