    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: TYPES OF TEA   What is tea? Tea is the young leaves and buds picked from an evergreen shrub called camellia sinensis. All the different kinds of teas we know come from a specific species of camellia sinensis. There are so many varieties of tea out there that its gets really confusing which one is the best.

    Kemcho? Avo maare gher. ( How are you? Welcome to my home)    March was when the Shhh Cooking Secretly group (started by Priya of Priya’s Versatile Recipes) ventured out to cook some Gujju (Gujarati) food. The general misconception is that Gujarati food is sweet. Yes we do use sugar and jaggery but it has to be a balance of both sweet and sour. Modern times with much health awareness, many Gujarati homes do not use sugar or jaggery in their daily cooking.     The land of Lions and Legends has countless varieties of dishes. As a Gujarati I can make out from which region the food has originated. For example kadhi made by Patel Community maybe so different in taste and texture from the…

    Fresh juices are most welcome when the sun is beating down on you and sweating zaps you of  your energy. Usually we all love juices that are the sweetest….. like passion juice, lemon juice,sugar cane juice. Very cooling but full of sugar. Beetroot helps to lower blood pressure and increase blood flow. No wonder, the vegetables sellers at the market constantly call out to customers to buy the food for blood (chakula ya damu in kiswahili). Research claims that having a beetroot or drinking the juice increases blood flow to the brain and therefore prevents the progress of dementia. Beetroot is a rich source of fibre and helps in combating constipation. The  powerful phytonutrients that gives the beetroot its deep crimson colour helps to ward…
