Let your light shine ✨
Making your own akashkandil or sky lantern is much fun. That moment when you switch on the button and light floods into the colourful paper makes you feel like a magician!

Today's Diwali delicacy is 'Chirota'. Look at those layers of labour, I did strive to get those right. Well, kind of right. This sweet is almost like a flaky pastry that melts in your mouth. And I love the sugar dusted version more than the one dipped in sugar syrup. I am loving it 🎆

Let the fry-fest begin ✨
Making a start on Diwali 2017 preparations with this super crunchy 'chakli'. The dough is made from 'bhajani' flour which is a healthy blend of various flours - mainly rice, bengal gram, black gram and spices. I have a soft corner for savoury, spicy festival foods and like my chakli with a cup of tea ☕

Why, oh why did I not make homemade hummus before? This super easy recipe turned out to be just a blend of soft chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, salt, lemon juice, and garlic. I also made tahini at home by dry roasting sesame seeds and grinding them with olive oil. Easy peasy I must say...

This was my abode for the weekend. A good old barn house in British countryside and a bunch of friends. What more can you ask for?

I must have flowers, always, and always. Monet was so right. I have some real carnations and some not so real tulips today!

That shiny, colourful sweet from my childhood 💓 These semi-jelly-like cubes in bright colours used to be an eminent part of 'dry fruit and mithai' gift boxes in Diwali. I used to love those colours and although there is still time for  Diwali, I tried to make an attempt at making this Bombay halwa. Never knew that cornflour works such wonders!

One of the most humble European cities that I absolutely love! I was watching a travel show yesterday and it brought back a thousand memories from the summer of 2015..
