This dish, wrapped up in a banana leaf parcel exudes a certain mystery. When you untie the parcel, the aromas imprisoned inside rush out to tease your senses, making your mouth water, adding so much more to the tasting experience of this dish.

This Bengali delicacy - Sheem Paturi found place of pride in this Tamil kitchen today. Tender flat beans from my kitchen garden, tossed with a freshly dug out sweet potato, topped with a spice paste that has all the punch mustard can muster, add to that the fierceness of tiny green chilies, all of this packed up in a banana leaf parcel and steamed cooked to perfection in a pan. Had with steamed rice, this was a divine delicacy indeed. Link in bio, and you MUST try it out!

Breakfast - Overnight oats topped with apple slices cooked down and caramelised, bits of walnut and ground green cardamom. Hearty, filling and fragrant, the warmth of the cooked apples makes up for the rather cold bowl of uncooked oats.

Pods of the gulmohar, rosewood, mahogany, copper pods, guava leaves, tamarind leaves, ficus, fern tree and mahogany leaves in our little collection of treasures picked up on the @neralufestival walk this morning.

Went on a tree walk this morning conducted as a part of the @neralufestival to celebrate our trees. Learnt about pods, leaves, barks, fruits and flowers. Befriended the gulmohars, the ficus, the fern tree, the copper pods and many others. In this picture is the majestic rain tree spreading its arms to create a most beautiful canopy.

Valentine's Day is a good day to write a post on Aphrodisiacs and I actually wrote some 800 words on this topic. Also included a word I hate -"mouthfeel", it fitted in this context perfectly😭
