Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Rice

When I first heard about the Cauliflower Rice, I mocked, I rolled my eyes, I was pretty clear on this that i would never make them for myself. I mean how can you substitute good old rice with a vegetable and that too Cauliflower ( i was never a big fan of it). Behold how the…

Chicken Parmigiana Recipe !

Hello guys! Its been a while since I have shared any recipe on the blog. Specially since I love creating new recipes and doing food photos. But I guess in the past many months, I have mostly just been cooking classic recipes : lots of curries, rice and pasta dishes. Good old comfort food during…

Our Bohemian Modern Living Room!

Hi guys! Since a long time I have been meaning to share some detailed photos of our home, starting with the living room. But the obnoxious perfectionist in me always keeps throwing new ideas to implement and they look so good in my head that i hesitate to share it in its current state. But…

Imaginative Play. Spring Cleaning. Bits n pieces.

With the weather changed, the kids are playing outside a lot more which is always good. They hang around the front yard for a while in the mornings, where hamza rides his skooter and Azaan watches out for monsters (and bird potty). And when they get bored from that, i guide them to the backyard…

Grub Food Van :: Cafe in a greenhouse

Me and cafes are a thing. I am happy to just sit in a cafe and watch people come and go, observe what they order, figure out if they are on a daily ritual or a special retreat, how they interact with their friends and family, drink in the cafe surroundings and interiors, the sweet…

Spring Break in the Grampians

My Indoor Garden

I was never much into plants. My mom was a huge fan always and growing up I remember she would decorate our home with indoor plants and she would always a huge collection of outdoor ones too. When I got married and starting setting up my own place, I discovered my love for interiors and…

Gold Drops Coffee and Tea

I am always on the lookout for my next cafe destination. I am falling hard for the Melbourne coffee and cafe culture and I mean to take it seriously. Some days I will just pop in at a neighborhood place and will be prepared to be surprised by it. Other days, I will do my…

Melbourne Cafe Culture :: Manchester Press

“The Australian cafe is a thing, and Melbourne has the best in the world.” To say that the coffee culture in Melbourne is huge would be an understatement. Here, coffee simply is the king. And I am on a personal journey to check out as many of these beautiful spots as possible. Melbourne cafes have…

SIX months in Melbourne :: Life Updates

Today marks six months to the day when I arrived in Melbourne late one night after tackling the seemingly heroic feat of such a long flight alone with the boys. So my trail of thoughts went back to all that happened within these last few months and I felt like writing a blog on it….
