Crunchy Granola Bars

1

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.

Turkish Delight – A sweet little recipe

Ever since I’ve came back from Turkey I’ve been wanting to make Turkish Delight and Baklava. Since I had been scorning both for the longest time, predictably, it took Istanbul to take me down a peg or two and teach me otherwise. Read more

And last night, in my zeal and determination to give myself and the world a delicious, easy, true 100 percent whole wheat recipe, I found the night turn into morning in a whirl of time-lapse as my brain and laptop kept ticking.  Read more

On a (cinnamon) roll

Namrata with one of her many many trophies

I think I haven’t really written about my friend Namrata before. Which is funny given how much a part of each others life we are. Here in Bombay, where the line between family and friends is very blurry, Namrata and Kanu are both family and friends to us.

This year, she has pretty much swept away every single awards there is to be bagged for an editor in the Indian film industry. This, after less than 3 years of leaving film school…
