Simple food is often the best food. Hot grilled bhutta (corn) rubbed with fresh limes, masalas and salt is a summer favorite in India. Bhuttawala’s (grilled corn vendors) stay busy roasting the corn on their little wooden carts as customers line up to slather their desired amount of masala and nimboo (Indian lemons) on the charred treat.
If you're planning on grilling this weekend I'd suggest making a batch of this masala mix to enjoy with your corn & other grilled vegetables.

Street food. Either you love it or you hate it. I mean is there really a middle ground when it comes to dining out in open, watching the street vendor flip their pans in action as you stand waiting your turn and eat with not a care in the world Obviously some people have concerns about the cleanliness, which is completely valid, but with their entire kitchen exposed to the public, street vendors have much more to lose if they don’t stay keep up their standards. One thing no one can deny is the flavors and innovation offered by Indian street food vendors. Every time I go to Bombay I see more and more vendors trying something different, whether it’s chicken makhani corn chaat (of course I tried it!), juicing gaana raas off a rickshaw or turning the humble papad into a crunchy, chatpata treat.

Paneer Makhani is a richly fragrant sauce made with spices, cream, onion, tomato and served with Indian cheese, paneer. It's a dish often served at weddings, parties and restaurants. Contrary to popular belief, heavy, butter laden dishes are not the norm for everyday Indian food. In fact, growing up my Mom made these creamy dishes only once in a while. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So when my parents came to visit me after I got married, I made this dish. It was a special moment for me, the first time I would be cooking for them and I wanted to wow them!

People often ask me if 👧🏻🌶 eats everything we do and the answer is for the most part, yes. Of course, like any toddler she has her moments of pickiness and I try to work around that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For example, when I'm making a chicken curry I add the red chili powder in phases; once at marination and once when I'm finishing off the curry. This way right before adding the second dose of chili powder I take out a portion for her and she gets all the flavor without all the spice!

A few years ago as I was navigating being a newly wed I started this blog, in an effort to recreate my moms recipes and document my journey along the way. As we grew, I started to share our adventures as a young family, the way we celebrate festivals, holidays and recreate traditional recipes. Thank you to those of you that have followed along, new friends and old. Blogging has introduced me to so many wonderful people and I'm truly grateful for every opportunity I've gotten to share my love of Indian food and culture. 💖
