Tea for Prosperity!

Healing Teas...
When Ananya, directed me to her posts full of information and goodies on Facebook, I took on to draw a few of her tea recipes. Fresh and simple. Just drawing them had a therapeutic effect on me.

Here's Radish tea for you all!

watercolor Postcard

Recipe for Pho.

Here's a recipe of Pho I did for a exhibition recently. It's a mix media work on paper, with old found paper, watercolor and stamping. I have new found love for mixing old with new, and not so obvious techniques.

Peanut Podi

When Ranjana came to work and stay with me I already though I'll ask her to make the peanut podi I had in Pune. So got all the ingredients ready and voila she took just 15 mins to make this 'goes with everything' podi.

The 3 days she spend here was fun, lot of reading together, working and chatting, a dozen chai and a samosa later she was ready to say good bye.

Hope you will try the podi and relish it like I did.

Carrot leaves in my garden patch

The small garden patch in our apartment below is overflowing with carrot greens thanks to good showers and plenty of sunshine. Some i plucked to add to the sambar and a few spig went into the chutney. Added very few as was not sure of the taste next time will add a few extra heaps.

As a kid I remember the winter noons… my grandmother, her sister, my mum and me would enjoy basking in the sun while knitting, chatting, peeling vegetables, combing and munching peanuts. I miss the relaxed sun on my back as i tried varied hairstyle on my grandmother. My mum would make magic potions with rose water and glycerin and lemon juice store it away in small bottles for each one of us.
Somedays we would laugh our hearts out at some silly jokes and someday we would just sing.
I wish I can have such glorious days back again.

My mum is old but whenever we meet she loves to recollect those days. Below is a recipe of her concoction that I still make and use.
