A recent study shows that more kids are now eating at fast-food chains like McDonald's, but parents are only buying the healthier side options about half the time. Read more from #NPRFood: link in bio!

#howtoprepmochabyMyMother
.
It is time for my Mother to leave for India and now I realize that I haven't done any of the things I had planned to do with her.
.
I did not jot down recipes or make videos of her cooking.
.
Instead I just ate the variety of food she cooked without thinking of a recipe, cooked for her, sat down with her every evening drinking copious amounts of tea, joined her in her hangout with her friends(my neighbors) ,watched movies and saregamapa on Zee Bangla with her, took a vacation together, argued, disagreed and restrained myself from interfering when she spoiled my daughters😜
.
And then I panicked!! Hey where are those videos I wanted to shoot? Where are the step by step photos of recipes? .
My mom balked at me "Oi shob ami parbo na"( I am not doing any of those things).
.
Really Ma? You can cook kochuri for your granddaughters and not tell me how much turmeric you put in your Maacher Jhol? You know how important it is to measure a piece of ginger before you chop!!
.
My mom rolled her eyes 🙄 and walked away.
.
The only thing I achieved is getting her to demo -- HOW TO PREP A MOCHA ( Banana Blossoms )
.
This I needed for myself. Or Lord help me, if I ever buy a pretty looking #bananablossom and know nothing to do with it except put it in a vase or shove it up somewhere!!!
.
So here's the one and only video of my Mom instructing on #howtoprepmocha. .
Statuatory Warning: Wear one of those plastic gloves unlike her and make sure you have lots of time to spare. 😅

How simple you are, bread, and how profound!
You line up on the baker's powdered trays like silverware or plates or pieces of paper and suddenly life washes over you, there's the joining of seed and fire, and you're growing, growing all at once like hips, mouths, breasts, mounds of earth, or people's lives. --Pablo Neruda

YOU GUYS. This is the kind of blog post I LIVE for. This kind of subject is absolutely fascinating to me. You get to learn about new foods, another culture, and how food is used beyond just eating it. Written by the wonderful @yo_cho. For the article click the link in my bio!

Trying to break the silence here by thinking of this happy September afternoon when I made my ammama's ulava charu (slow cooked horse gram thick stew). When I lost my grandmother I thought I lost this recipe forever till I discovered it in her original Telugu book and recreated it. Earthy with whispers of umami, this intensely savoury broth reminds me of ammama like nothing else and of the last meal she fed me - hot steaming rice and ulava charu laced with butter. I talk about ulava charu and my other favourites from #fivemorselsoflove in a beautiful piece @kamalathiagarajan did for @npr. Link in bio 👆🏽

Grandma Lydia’s Chicken Soup on a Cold, Rainy Day (2/2) 👵🏼🍲❤️ “I came to NY in 1971. The plan was to go to college but I ended up going to a computer school. It was hard at first because all I knew was farm life and now I was suddenly a city girl. I especially missed my mom. I moved to Brooklyn to stay with my brother and later I moved in with nuns near 49th Street on 8th or 9th Avenue. I then met my husband, got married, and moved to Woodside. That was 1980.
.
It wasn't until I got married when I had to cook again so I would call my mom to remind me of the recipes. It was a bonding experience. My husband is into full hearty food so the soup worked best for him and was easier for me to learn and make. It was and still is my go-to on cold, rainy days. Like today. And I love cooking it for my grandson. It’s adorable when he asks for it because I get to hear him try to pronounce the name in Spanish. It’s ‘sopa de pollo y vegetales.’
.
When Hurricane Maria happened, I was sick with worry for my family and for the state of my mom’s house because that's the only thing we have left of her. They were closed off from everybody since there’s only one road there and it was blocked by fallen trees. My other family members in San Juan tried to reach them and it took them a month to make sure they were ok. I was so happy to hear that the house was ok, too. My family members are helping each other, and some still don’t have electricity. We’ve mailed out lanterns, batteries, canned foods, and solar-powered fans.” - Grandma Lydia from her kitchen in Woodside, Queens
