Borscht is the Boss. Pretty Red Soup for Wellness.

No, don't cringe like that, I know most of you hate Beetroots but this soup is a game changer. I have been trying to eat healthy (now that's one race I will be running forever) and I have to keep mixing things up so that I stay amused and intrigued towards what I am eating, much like a stubborn kid.

I was watching Fox Traveller on TV this morning and one of my most favorite shows to watch is Food Safari, and in the Poland special they showed the recipe for this soup and I knew I just had to try it out. Don't you just love it when you have all the ingredients from the list in your pantry?

Source : Food Safari on Fox Traveller
Serves 4
Ingredients :
300 gm Beetroots, peeled with trimmed ends
1 small Potato
1 small Onion/1 Shallot
1 Zucchini
1 Cup of Yogurt
Juice of one small Lemon (4 tsp)
Salt to taste
Sour Cream/Hung Curd for topping
Dill Leaves/Coriander for garnish


Boil/Pressure cook Beetroots and Potatoes in some water until tender.

Blitz them in the blender along with the water, and all the other ingredients roughly chopped, except the ones for topping and garnish. (You may roughly chop the Cucumber with skin on).

Pour into a bowl and top with a dollop of Sour Cream and sprinkle Dill or Coriander leaves over the top. Easy? Healthy?
Enjoy! :)

Guide to acting like you know what you are eating.

This is the first post on my blog which is purely about something that I think. No food review, no recipe. In over a year of becoming socially active on the food blogging scene and having the opportunity to try new restaurants in Mumbai and Delhi as well as realizing and experiencing the growth and outlook towards 'non-Indian' cuisine, I have come across some great food, some not so great food, some very knowledgeable people and some people who symbolize pretentiousness. 

I am tired of being acquainted with and dining around people who know their Guccis and Pradas and are more than appropriately dressed just for dinner at an up market place, but complain when there is too little on their plate in the middle of a 5 course meal or ask for 'Schezwan Sauce' every time they eat out at a Chinese/Japanese (yes, Japanese) restaurant.

Food Review : Let the pictures do the talking. Re-launch of the Taste of Yauatcha, Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai.

I have been to very few places in Mumbai where I could call my meal an experience. Yauatcha definitely tops that list. I don't know if I like the food or the hospitality more, but then there is also their impeccable attention to detail. Recently, Yauatcha re-launched their specially crafted 'Taste Of Yauatcha' menu for a four course afternoon meal and I consider myself honored (and lucky) to have been a part of it, the experience, I mean. This interesting culinary experience includes delectable selections from Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian menus at just Rs. 888 and Rs. 988 per guest respectively (plus taxes).
