#Laal #bhaji. #Rich and #nourishing #red #amaranth cooked simply with onions, coconut and chili- an intrinsic part of my growing up years! This version was drier than the one I'm used to. I like the moist one specially with chapati. I love this prep for its simplicity, amazing flavour and crunchy texture. A bowl of this can keep me smiling all afternoon! #saraswatcuisine #vegan #Goa #Goadiaries #foodtrip #foodporn #windmillscraftworks #travel #wanderlust #travelandlife #cheflife #culture #incredibleindia #indiancuisine

Considering the major fish ban in Goa, it is hard to find fish and even harder to trust the source, but we went ahead and ordered the lady fish,1. Murdoshi (lady fish) ambot-tik. Done in a sour and spicy style. 2.rice with Chicken Guisado and 3. With Karwari prawns. The Red stuff in the background is laal bhaji.

Earlier this month, I had the rare honour of innugurating the #dhiorganics store in #Bangalore. 'Rare' because I don't get to cut too many ribbons and 'honour' because I got to be a part of an extremely motivated and passionate team. Rajan and Dhivya who spearhead Dhi Organics are not just sellers of organic produce, their involvement is so deep rooted that they help the farmers to first turn the land and soil into an organic ecosystem. They then help with farming techniques, bio fertilisers and natural pest control of the farms. Their spectrum covers organic #vegetables, #fruits, #eggs, #A2 #milk and #ghee, #coldpressed oils, #cereals, #pulses, #spices and even top of the line organics #cosmetics, All crafted with a deep and revered sense of gratitude for our environment. Every interaction with them is a revelation, it's like I'm learning food all over again, in a whole new light. The future of food looks a lot brighter when you have people such as them to shine the light. #organic #farming #environment #friendly #natural #nopesticides #nochemicals #givingback #oldfarming #techniques #windmillscraftworks #Oota #TheTerrace #whitefield #bangalore #sobangalore #bangalorediaries

The invalid Majjige! #Cumin and #Curryleaf infused #vodka makes this simple #buttermilk supremely satisfying but it also makes it invalid to be called a majjige right? Pull out the #chilli pin and the #icebomb drops right into the drink, along with the iced tadka. It's a fun drink, and it captures the essence of canara flavours only in the inimitable style of our #master #mixologist @alexander.neil. #Oota #whitefield #bangalore #sobangalore #bangalorediaries #indiaflavours #drinkswithatwist #windmillscraftworks #creative #mixology

Excited to be working with some organic farmers. It's high time we cared for the environment and did ourselves a favour. While training in Italy I was introduced to the eggs called 'pastaiole' which had a deep orange yolk and were used specially for pasta. They gave the pasta it's beautiful, characteristic pale yellow tinge. For years I looked for eggs that could match that beautiful colour. Lets just say that this morning was magical! #nofilter #organic #eggs #dhiorganics #colours #hues #healthy #breakfast #cafe #trials #newmenu #windmillscraftworks #whitefield #bangalore #sobangalore #bangalorediaries

Prawns vs Crustacea! What a match! Prawns won but I think Crustacea needs equal credit for having made it to the finals. #fifa #WorldCup #food ball. Turmeric and chilli #prawns on a bed of #mung #sprouts salad. #wholesome #comfort. #wip #newmenu #trial #windmillscraftworks #bangalore #whitefield #sobangalore #bangalorediaries

The Red Sea? Getting ready for the customary Foundation Day photo followed by a special lunch curated and executed by the team at #Oota #Bangalore. I have done many large catering assignments but this one was special as we worked on a menu with regional food. Think speciality restaurant for 700 people! Complex scale and execution and the team did it with style! #totalenvironment #windmillscraftworks #foundationday #regionalfood #karnatakacuisine #indiancuisine #chefs #cheflife #cooking #teamwork #team

Sauji chicken curry for 700 guests! Who would have thought that the scale would be so pretty! Colours of #turmeric, #ginger, #garlic, #coriander and #green chillies. #Oota #bangalore #windmillscraftworks #bulkcooking #colours #hues #regionalfood #karnatakacuisine #indiancuisine

Presenting a 360 on the famous #Davangere #Benne #Dose. It's crisp, yet spongy, it's buttery, sinful and oh so soul satisfyingl #culinarytrip #Oota #bangalore #traveltoeat #traveltodrink #culture #flavours #taste #traveldiaries #travelsights #wanderlust #textures

Idli, jeera soup at Chitradurga. Interesting that they call this sambar-ish broth soup. With a generous amount of cumin, and a good balance of chili, spice and jaggery, it was delightful. #culinarytrip #Oota #bangalore #traveltoeat #traveltodrink #culture #flavours #taste #wanderlust #travelandlife #travelsights #traveldiaries #karnatakacuisine #indiancuisine
