Chilled Tomato and Peach Soup with Coconut Jalapeño Ice Cubes

My Recipes
Garlicky Spiced Fish(sorra puttu) rolled in thinly sliced Eggplant with Coconut rice. It’s been a year since @the_bojon_gourmet and I shot this for the book... time sure flies. While all the ladies of my family make minced fish this way, this dish reminds me of my Perima(aunty). When the whole family of thirty or more would get together, she was always the one who was asked to make this dish. She had the knack(kai padham) to get it right. Of course, it had to go in the book. Alana @the_bojon_gourmet and I will be at this Sunday 3-4p.m signing books and talking about our journey. Please come on over, say Hi and ask us any questions:food, photography and more. Thanks A for being there for me.❤
For the love of coffee. Caramel-Caradamom Affogato. A touch of caramel liquor and you are set. Classy, unfussy and sexy. Few ingredients and a dessert that requires no effort. New blog post up with many pictures and a last minute recipe idea for Valentines. Recipe link in bio and stories.
Sesame Cakes with chai glaze. Baked and styled by one amazingly talented lady Deeba @passionateaboutbaking, from #masalaandmeatballs . Her food and pictures are a treat for your eyes and Deeba’s love for chocolate is apparent in her feed. There was a time when I made ONLY naked cakes until I came across Deeba’s blog and her swirly chocolate design to garnish a cake. It was doable for a person who freaks out at the name of cake decoration. It was an immediate hit at the party and I still make that. Thanks for inspiring so many of us. A talented person with so much kindness. Thanks for the support and love Deeba.????
Masala Chicken Wings. One of the top viewed posts on the blog and a favorite of many. When my publishers said I could have only five recipes from the blog in my book, I knew this had to get in. Recipe on my blog and #masalaandmeatballs.
