The Eat Shop Love Pair

My friend and I met each other when we were in our early twenties, and like two mad women who create more madness when they hangout, we got along like a house on fire … and like how something don’t change, a decade later too we are still the same, as crazy, as chirpy as we were and we will probably be clinking our beer mugs even when we are in our 50’s … we will never grow old.

The common denominator in our lives has been that we both have been corporate slaves but our interests have clearly been outside … Her interests in food & dining and mine in fashion & beauty … Deadly isn’t it? And the best part is we both get into the detailing of our respective interests, which also helps us in writing about them in our blogs.

Summer of Happiness- Healthy Fruit Pizza Recipe

Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes. Specially food packaged with wholesome goodness. Recently, I bought some Mother Dairy products like natural yogurt, tadka chaach, flavored lassi and soft paneer on a summer day. I wanted to try them all, but could not resist the temptation of tasting Mishti Doi- fermented sweet yogurt first and opened it. The rich and creamy taste of the Mishti Doi was pure pleasure for my taste buds.

Review: Jamavar, The Leela Mumbai’s Signature Indian Restaurant.

It was a rainy day but we were adamant. A true foodie braves many a challenges (potholes, errant taxi drivers, forgotten umbrellas) when good food calls…..especially authentic good food. We whizzed past the airport to settle for a royal dining experience at Jamavar, The Leela Mumbai’s signature Indian restaurant. And was the ride worth the trouble? Wicked Spoon Confessions tells you all :)

We stepped into Jamavar, located at the lobby level and were seated at a beautifully set corner table. Crystal chandeliers cast a subdued glow on the gold and brown interiors of Jamavar and the hand carved wooden screens.

10 Popular Indian Chicken Dishes

“I love Chicken Tikka Masala!” that’s how I was greeted by my husband’s Greek counterparts. Not just Greeks, most of Londoners agree and even my fellow Indians.

Chicken is eponymous with non-veg meal in India. Chicken offers an easy source of high-quality protein. A boneless, skinless chicken breast is relatively low in fat as compared to other meats.

Review: Afternoon Tea at La Farine Café and Bakery, JW Marriott Marquis.

You can’t buy Happiness, but you can buy tea and that’s kind of the same thing. It was our last day at Dubai and we wanted to make it memorable and full of happy thoughts. Having shopped our way through almost all the malls, we decided to settle back with a cup of tea and gaze at the tallest skyline on the planet. But we were in a fix. We needed a special place to savor the purest form of a simple pleasure known to us- a cup of aromatic tea. Someone suggested we head to the World’s tallest hotel- JW Marriott Marquis located at one of the most desirable locations in Dubai.
