Keeping with the New Years theme of trying to be healthier and fitter, I decided it’s time to make granola bars. I love granola bars. I think they are the perfect snack. Healthy but just a bit indulgent. Win-win all round. Having made loads of different granola bar recipes over the last few years, I had hit on the perfect recipe last year. However, me being me, I lost the recipe. (Yes, I know. Its ridiculous. I’ve spent the better part of the last few months kicking myself.) Meanwhile Atul had been asking for these – only about a gazillion times. The only way to rectify the situation and regain my self-respect seemed that I puzzle out the recipe again.
The more I travel, the more I feel there’s too little time and too many places to go to. So many things to eat and such little stomach space. I love Mumbai but my hearts fickle. Scattered in the many places I’ve been to, longing for the many places I haven’t. In love with the food I know, craving for the food I don’t. Ingredients, traditions, foods waiting to be found, loved, learnt, experienced.
So here's the new I'm hopping up and down about! I've teamed up with the fantastic Enfield Riders to bring to you guys a super fun adventure – A Bike ride to explore the food, beaches and joy of Konkan.
Come 16th, 17th and 18th January 2015 and the roads by the western Coast will see us Biking through the sunlit beaches of the Arabian Sea, basking in the winter sun, getting sprayed by the salty sea and eating our way through one of India's most gorgeous coastal belts.
There's going to be plenty of fresh local food, fishing in sparkling waters, visits to bustling bazaars, learning Malvani cuisine from locals who do it best, camping by the beach, cooking over wood fired chulhas, grilling the freshest fish you can imagine, toddy guzzling and loads more of deliciousness.
Needless to say this gorge fest is for the hardcore. Come for the scenic ride on thundering Enfields if you want but make sure you pack a serious love for seafood and an appetite for adventure.

Ever since I discovered momos in the Tibetan market outside NID I’ve been in love with dumplings. My accomplice for many a day of heartbreak, joy, depression, hope and a part of the most important lesson I learnt in life – solitude. There’s something just so comforting about dumplings. Read more
