Dhaba-style dry Mushroom Do Pyaza for lunch kinda Tuesday. The different textures of the onions and the mushrooms go really well together. And yes, I ate with this with plain rice 😀 . . . . . . . . . . . . #tuesday #lunch #mushroomdopyaza #northindianfood #indianfood #vegetarian #homemade #madewithlove #foodlover #foodie #instagood #instayum #homecook #foodphotography #foodstyling #flatlay #myfood #thekitchn #feedfeed #food52 #f52grams #delish #delicious #yummy #buzzfeedtasty #tastemade #uglydelicious #goyajournal #padminicooks #stayhome

Chow Chow bhaat for breakfast kinda Monday. What a gloomy Gus the weather is being! I am not complaining, though. I would choose Bangalore monsoons over monsoons in any other city. I love the fact that I am wearing a sweater and socks where my friends in other parts of the country are sweating buckets 😂. I am not a big fan of upma. I love rawa idli but avoid upma. This weather called for a hot breakfast and I was craving kesari bhaat, so decided to go the whole length and made Karnataka-special Chow-Chow bhaat. Peas and onion upma and a gooey, slightly liquidy kesari bhaat. . . . . . . . . . . . #monday #breakfast #chowchow #bhaat #kesari #southindianfood #karnatakafood #homemade #madewithlove #foodlover #foodie #instagood #instayum #homecook #foodphotography #foodstyling #flatlay #myfood #thekitchn #feedfeed #food52 #f52grams #delish #delicious #yummy #buzzfeedtasty #tastemade #uglydelicious #goyajournal #padminicooks

Fish in tomato gravy for lunch kinda Sunday. This is Ma's recipe. She was never too keen on spices and her cooking reflected that. This fish curry consists of onions, garlic, tomatoes, green chillies, fresh coriander, turmeric and salt. It's flavorful and comforting and oh so easy. Ma taught me that good, delicious, home cooking doesn't need 15 different kinds of spices. Her cooking philosophy came from her Khasi heritage. Fresh ingredients, turmeric, salt, and pepper and a whole lot of love. 🤗 . . . . . . . . . . . #sunday #lunch #fishcurry #momsrecipe #khasifood #familyrecipes #homemade #madewithlove #foodlover #foodie #instagood #instayum #homecook #foodphotography #foodstyling #flatlay #myfood #thekitchn #feedfeed #food52 #f52grams #delish #delicious #yummy #buzzfeedtasty #tastemade #uglydelicious #goyajournal #padminicooks #stayhome

Bhaja bhaat for brunch kinda Friday. Bhaja bhaat literally translates to Fried Rice. But the bhaja bhaat of home is nothing like the fried rice you order at your favourite Chinese food joint. This bhaja bhaat is a testament to rushed weekend mornings at home when brunch had to provided. This was my mom's go-to recipe for leftover rice. Oil is tempered with whole cumin, sliced onions, green chillies and pinch of turmeric. Toss in the cold, leftover rice and add salt to taste. Done. Eat as a main meal or like my mother did (as do I), with a steaming mug of black tea. Happy weekend folks! P.S. Planning to do a series of food my mother cooked or loved to eat. This will be fun! . . . . . . . . . #friday #brunch #bhajabhaat #friedrice #foodmymothercooked #mothersrecipe #homemade #madewithlove #foodlover #foodie #instagood #instayum #homecook #foodphotography #foodstyling #flatlay #myfood #thekitchn #feedfeed #food52 #f52grams #delish #delicious #yummy #buzzfeedtasty #tastemade #uglydelicious #goyajournal #padminicooks #stayhome

Syrwa and memories of Ma for dinner kinda Tuesday. It's my mother's 10th death anniversary. 10 years of missing her and longing for her. I know she is happy whereever she is. I know she is proud of me and @manishanm . She raised us well, inculcated her beloved values in us, and most of all, she made us fall in love with food. This was her favourite food of all time. This was her panacea. An upset stomach to a bad day, anything could be fixed with a syrwa. Syrwa is a simple Khasi broth made with ginger, onions and salt. One adds vegetables and meat or fish and eats it with hot rice. I hope she approves of my attempt. . . . . . . . #tuesday #dinner #khasifood #northeast #momsfavorite #mom #homemade #madewithlove #foodlover #foodie #instagood #instayum #homecook #foodphotography #foodstyling #flatlay #myfood #thekitchn #feedfeed #food52 #f52grams #delish #delicious #yummy #buzzfeedtasty #tastemade #uglydelicious #goyajournal #padminicooks #stayhome

Chicken Khao Suey/Khow Suey/ Khao Soi for dinner kinda Saturday. So easy to cook and so comforting this dish is. The only fiddly thing about this is assembling the essential condiments. Ideal for nights like the ones Bangalore has been having the past couple of days. . . . . . . . . . . #saturday #dinner #khaosoi #burmese #comfortfood #soulfood #homemade #madewithlove #foodlover #foodie #instagood #instayum #homecook #foodphotography #foodstyling #flatlay #myfood #thekitchn #feedfeed #food52 #f52grams #delish #delicious #yummy #buzzfeedtasty #tastemade #uglydelicious #goyajournal #padminicooks #stayhome

Kolar bora (banana fritters) for coffee time kinda Thursday. These are supposed to be smaller and plumper, but my batter became a tad watery and hence the flat shape. Tastes of home, though ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #coffee #thursday #banana #fritters #coffeetime #bengalifood #homemade #madewithlove #foodlover #foodie #instagood #instayum #homecook #foodphotography #foodstyling #flatlay #myfood #thekitchn #feedfeed #food52 #f52grams #delish #delicious #yummy #buzzfeedtasty #tastemade #uglydelicious #goyajournal #padminicooks #stayhome
