Roasted Pumpkin Soup

It’s always a surprise when something you’ve never liked actually becomes something you love, right? Especially food! There are flavours, dishes, ingredients that you grow up disliking (sometimes for no legit reason) and some of these magically transition from dislike to tolerate to actually like to eat, over the years.

Bhindi Fry with Peanuts

It’s amazing how many ways one vegetable can be cooked, right? India itself is this massive treasure trove of recipes. Every state has multiple ways to cook things and flavours change so beautifully between states.

Maharashtra has delicious food! From the Konkan and malwani food to the vegetarian delicacies in other parts of the state, the spicy fare near the east and the Parsi,Irani food in Bombay. From street food extravaganzas to lovely desserts, this state is special 🙂

This bhindi recipe is inspired by my time spent in Bombay. Of course it has peanuts 🙂

Well , I have a few go-to recipes but somehow I’ve never ended up taking nice photographs of them (either too dark or too hungry!) and I think it’s also because I wanted to share some other recipes that I make less often or have discovered recently. Plus everyone has a good rajma recipe, so maybe I felt it wasn’t needed. Well, things change! I now want to share my favourite rajma recipes with you for you to experience my love even more!

Starting with this Jammu style rajma which I discovered rather late in life, but absolutely love!
