That Rooh Afza Cake that I styled & shot for Uparwali Chai, @pamela_timms's recently released cookbook… . . Quintessential Indian flavours & a nostalgic connect, about this cake Pamela says "I thought it would be fun to use Rooh Afza to create a show stopper of a cake". It is all that & more, a favourite cake that I styled & shot, one that made it to the cover of her cookbook. @penguinrandomhouse @penguinindia Styling & shooting Pamela's book was a memorable experience with @toopsie . 3 days of shooting in crazy summer heat last year, each image stamped in my mind, the behind the scenes running like a film as I leaf through her book. Holding her book in my hands made my heart race, such a special moment, such joy! There are so many favourites here – Old Delhi Cheesecake, Jam Tarts, Nan Khatai, Mango & Old Monk Trifle, Pickle Pies just to name a few. Also, I'm pleased to give away 2 copies of Uparwali Chai, to enter comment your favorite tea time dessert below!

The Thai butternut squash sweet potato bisque is just as beautiful as is delicious and you can’t go wrong with these flavors, especially when it's getting chilly outside. The perfect dinner with a side of bread on a cold winter day, this soup is super thick and creamy with a hint of heat that will keep you warm and cozy. Long story short it's all the fall flavors in a bowl. INGREDIENTS 2 tablespoons Vegetable Oil 3 teaspoons Thai Green Curry Paste (See Note 1) 1 small Onion, chopped 1 cup grated Carrots 1 Butternut Squash, peeled and cubed (about 2.5–3 cups) 1 Sweet Potato, peeled and cubed (about 1 cup) 1 1/2 cups Coconut Milk 1/2 cup Water 1 tablespoon Fish Sauce (optional) Salt to taste Topping suggestions: chopped red onions, lime juice, thai red chillies, roasted peanuts, fresh Thai basil INSTRUCTIONS Cook: Heat oil in a large pot and add thai green curry paste. Saute for 2-3 minutes till fragrant and add onions. Cook the onions till slightly translucent and add the carrots. Cook the carrots till they soften and add the butternut squash, sweet potato, coconut milk, water (whisk together the coconut milk and water and add it to the pot) and salt. Bring this to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes till the butternut squash and sweet potato have softened and can be easily smashed with the back of a spoon. Add a little more water in between if necessary. Mix in the fish sauce. Blend: Add everything to a blender and blend till smooth. My blender allows me to add hot things and blend, but if yours doesn’t, let everything cool before blending and then reheat to serve. Serve: If cooling everything before blending, reheat the bisque, top with your favourite toppings and serve hot. #myfoodstory #ThaiFood #bisque #fall #comfortfood #homemade #plantbased #vegetarian #savory #healthy #FallFood #fallFlavours #wholefoods #foodstagram #WinterRecipes #WinterFood #moodfood #SweetPotato #cozy #recipeoftheday #foodphotography #mycommontable #EEEEEATS #instagood #souplife #souplover #soupfordays #souprecipe #veggiepower #veggielove

Comfort food for a fairly cold and busy hump day afternoon. Today is also the last day of mid term exams for the child and we had dal-Chawal & fish fry on the menu but fish didn’t arrive for some reason. Khichdi is almost as comforting the child said. I think he’ll do fine in life. Fish fry, khichdi and dal chawal, what else does one need. And oh don’t miss my gajak 😉 how is your #humpDay going? #sinamon #sinamonKitchen #winterLunch #comfortfood #everydayfood #gharkakhana #eeeeeats #sinamonWinter #lunch #lunchtime #indianfood #indianfoodbloggers #khichdi #foodtalkindia #winterfood #heresmyfood #vegetarian #glutenfree
