"Globally inspired Indian food that is dinner party & late night munchies approved!"

If you’ve found yourself here in search of an appetizer spread to pair with a Bravo TV marathon binge, easy recipe for a late night munchies situation, or just here to get flavor ideas to incorporate into tonight’s dinner party of 1 (or more), I hope you leave inspired to get into your kitchen and make it happen. I believe recipes are meant to be a rough guide, developed to be easily adapted and tweaked to your own taste preferences. If you don’t like a spice or don’t have an ingredient on hand, don’t let that stop you- just omit it or find a replacement! So let’s get to it. Slide into my emails with any and all of your questions. I’m here for you! 

 

 

"Indian-American comfort food that tastes and feels like home."

Hi! I’m Natasha, a 20-something gastrotourist living in Washington, D.C. who is never not nostalgic for my mum’s cooking. Living over 3000 miles away from her and often craving her divine biryanis and luscious goat and potato curries after a long day at work, I made it my goal to teach myself how to cook food that tastes like home.

It didn’t take long for cooking to become a form of therapy. My goal is simple: to share Indian-inspired mashups that are accessible yet unique. I am constantly fascinated by the origin of spices, the intersection of food and culture throughout history, and the impact it has on the food we eat today. I’m also forever inspired by my travels and enjoy remixing new flavors with the beloved flavor profiles that I grew up eating in my mum’s kitchen.

"Food is who I AM. It is my culture. It is my being.
And yes, food is political."
