From Mom’s Kitchen:Rani Fish Curry

So the mother has been having this nagging stomach ache and she’s decided to go traditional in her medicine. The Alappuzha girl decided to treat her stomach with a nice tangy fish curry. So here we go; a real quick and tangy fish curry. Alleppey style! Pink Perch/ Rani fish is the one that has…

Zeera Rice

Variety is the spice of life, I have heard. I don’t know if it’s true. But when it comes to food, I think variety is very important. Taking the same food day in day out to office doesn’t feel as appealing or exciting, especially to a foodie. To get up early in the morning and…
