Karaikudi, Chettinad, South India

Karaikudi, South India. We managed much more than we could ever imagine. 2 days can never be enough for a place as beautifully, and as historically and culturally rich like this. There's so much to explore, so many heritage sites in the region, ongoing ASI excavations, forts, temples, artisans, kitchens. Also so many more doors and windows, small things that fascinate me. Come share my journey deep into South India.

Wholegrain Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Wholegrain Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies that come together in a matter of minutes, fuss free and absolutely delicious. That they are 100% wholegrain makes them a winner. Swap the chocolate chips for raisins, maybe add some walnuts, or make them coffee chocolate chip cookies. Either way, these will disappear before you know it! This is pure comfort food.

The Masala Dabba #3

The spices we cover for The Masala Dabba #3 are cardamom, whole pepper and turmeric. I think I love the spice journey best. We enter month #3 of our collaborative spice journey with exploring or rather ‘shooting’ spices. March is synonymous with Spring, new beginnings and a whole lot of colour. This March also had holi, the festival of colour, which inspired me to shoot several times through the month.
