#longpost Today is Gauri Poojan at home in Pune. We, in Marathi families celebrate the home coming of 2 sisters (Gauri) of Ganpati bappa on the 3rd day after Bappa's arrival. Just how a married woman comes home to meet her parents, similarly we welcome the Gauri home. 'Gaur ali sonyachya paulanni' (Gauri has arrived home to bring prosperity) we chant as she enters into the house and our hearts. Small footprints are drawn with rangoli all over the house depicting the footprints of the goddess. The idols are brought home and  taken around the house, tracing the rangoli footprints, showing them the house.

We then dress up the idols with sarees, jewelry and lots of flowers. Couple of rows lined with different sweets and delicacies are setup in front of them. The entire house is decked up with flowers and lights because daughters have come home. It's their homecoming.

The second day after their arrival, Gauri are pampered with flower garlands, offered new sarees, jewelry and their favorite food. And the third day is when they return back to their home. All this happens every year for 3 days. I always felt their positive power in the house. As if there is a heavenly aura of the divine around us on those days.

On the third day, we bid Gauri farewell with teary eyes, hoping she comes home soon the next time. I consider myself lucky to have had the experience and opportunity to see all these things closely, I always felt the different emotions associated with Gauri Pooja much deeply.

Now that I have moved far away from home, everything happens on long distance calls. I miss decorating the house, making sweets and the food. I miss...being there. So in honor of the Gauri at home, back in Pune, every year I prepare food for the Goddess that have been a part of my life for the longest part. This thaali is dedicated to the Goddess who emanates positivity and exuberance in our lives.

#latepost Ganpati bappa has arrived and I am so excited about it. Welcoming our favorite deity is so much fun. And wait, did I tell you we make lots of modaks for this festival?

This year however we were out for a trip and reached home on the day of Bappa’s arrival. I was dead tired but could not let the day go by. I made my ‘when in rush’ modak recipe for the naivedya(offering). Basically, I made mango flavored sheera and then using the modak mold, moulded into the shape of modak. I have used store bought mango pulp by @desaibandhu. 
The modak are easy to make, look cute, taste like mango and finish in no time. I thought of sharing this recipe with you guys because I know you guys like eating modak. 😊 
Happy Ganeshotsav 🌺🌺 Link in bio for step by step details.

My household has been loving Quinoa since a long time. My husband is a fan of Quinoa rotis. The main reason I moved to Quinoa is because I don’t eat meat, the vegetarian protein options are steep and glutinous food is not my best friend. 
These Quinoa Rotis are easy to make and the Rotis remain soft for 2 days when kept in an airtight container slightly slathered with oil/ghee.

When it comes to Quinoa Roti, it has that perfect nutty taste and the  slightly charred version is the best.
Link in bio for the detailed version. 
PS: I cannot make a perfect round Roti so don't judge them by their shape 🙈

Happy long weekend guys ❤️ #quinoaroti #quinoa #recipe #indianfoodbloggers #indianfood #indiancooking #nomnom24x7 #homecooked #yummyinmytummy #liveauthentic #eeeeeats #desifood #delicious #vegetarian #india #foodphotography #foodstyling #gharkakhana #hautecuisines #foodgawker #buzzfeastfood #foodie #cookandtell #punefoodies #food52 #foodblogfeed #tastingpot #foodfluffer #protein #glutenfree
This is how my Monday fasting meal looks like. 
Thought of making a colorful plate of fruits for a rather gloomy weather. Also, what better day than a rainy one to start using artificial lights 😉
Happy Monday y'all 💕

I've been on a creative block for a while. Basically, I've not been able to process new ideas and thoughts off late. Apart from random pictures on phone, I've been away from my camera and I hope I cut the chase and overcome my self proclaimed inertia soon. I want to know if you feel the same sometimes and how do you cope with it.

Meanwhile, I tried making peanut butter last month and I loved how delicious it turned out to be. Inspired by the hard light pictures by Suchita @f00dprints, I tried something similar. 😊 
Wishing everyone a happy day ahead 💕

All my life I had known the use of curry leaves only for tempering food. But recently, my husband made a life changing revelation to me. A few weekends ago, while we were delving into our childhood memories, he told me about his maternal grandmother. He told memories of visiting her every summer and she'd make curry leaves podi/dry chutney for him. The green colored podi always amazed him and he wished to eat it now but it never happened that way.

I wondered for a while if I had eaten it growing up. But it felt alien to me. Nevertheless, it was interesting and I started exploring ways to make it. I tried out few recipes on google to get a hang of the portions. Made him taste it one night and I knew it made the cut. It brought back memories for him and a new recipe for me. And also a little closer to knowing the food culture at his place. Gosh! God works in mysterious ways, I tell you!

Another Monday, another sweet potato dish! I made sweet potato slices glazed with jaggery - cardamom syrup for my monday fast. We, at home refer to it as 'Ratalyache god kaap' in marathi.

Sweetpotato slices are cooked in minimum water, jaggery and flavored with cardamom. Monday ends on a sweet note for me. 😊

Happy week ahead 😊

The prospect of eating collard greens is high tonight 😉

#throwback Sweetpotato- coconut & peanut tikkis for monday snacking. I observe fast on mondays and this 'fast' friendly version serves my monday lunch ordeal. These tikkis are shallow fried until crisp and flavored with cumin and mint. I usually pair it with coconut-coriander chutney or nothing at all. Uff, the thought already invokes hunger pangs 😄

On another note, we're back from our Denver trip this morning and I'm currently editing the pictures. Stay tuned for my travel stories 😊

In between packing for trip and splitting headache, I did manage to squeeze in some time to take few shots today. Working with greens is therapeutic, you see! 
Mint in all its glory through macro lens.

Happy weekend ya'll!

We are braving an excessive heat alert over the weekend. And evidently we're on ice cream diet, making the most of it, you see! Remember the rice kheer I shared few days ago. Well, the leftover kheer turned into these beautiful popsicles. So now we have lavender-blueberry rice kheer popsicles for today. 😊 
The idea is inspired by popsicle Queen @cupcakeree. Her mango sticky rice and roasted corn popsicles inspired me to try this out 😊
