Sale for charity

It's been almost four months, I really feel bad that I have not had the chance to blog or be active on social media...about that, latter, but I do have some important stuff to share. 

I have been involved with a few charities for the last year or so,  Feed my starving children and Akshaypatrey.  Being so passionate about food just does not end with a food blog and pretty pictures of food. It has to have a more meaningful purpose. Most of us have more than enough to be happy and live a comfortable life. If we can help the less fortunate a little bit, the world would be a better place. This is just my small way of contributing and hope that one day it grows enough to feed many many hungry kids. 

I am planning to sell all my art work at a discounted price of 50% and ALL PROCEEDS GO TO CHARITY MENTIONED ABOVE. I posted this on social media a few days ago and have been able to raise $250 dollars, I was hoping to at least raise $500 dollars for this cause. I hope you guys can help me with my goal. You can view almost all of my images here.

Details & Pricing 

The photograph will be sent to you via email or drop box, high resolution images that can be printed on canvas or glass. Reason I am not doing print is because I know some people like to print on canvas or glass or paper or anyother medium. Sizes from 4X6" - price available on request. email : turmeric53@gmail.com

I can add text on request, like a quote or anything else you want - no extra cost. 

I'm excited and hope to give more in the years to come. Thank you so much for your love and support.

Vegan red bean kofta balls in curry





I love the exuberance of the blogging world. There is so much of talent and so much to learn, not just food, or  photography but other genre, be it a travel blog or a beauty blog or just musings. Collaborations between bloggers is not uncommon and sometimes we also  get inspired or create rich content by collaborations. It always saddens me to see when people do not give due credit to a recipe or an image or content, by linking back or a mention. It's not just protocol, I think it is generosity to acknowledge the talent and contribution of others in our creative pursuit,  no matter how small their contribution is.   We are all here to create our small space and share what we do best,  it's so nice if we can all give credit that is due. Thanks to everyone who links back to my blog or portfolio site, when they share my work. I really appreciate the generosity.

Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.

- Khalil Gibran 

What should I tell you about this recipe, red bean is not the preferred legume in this household. No one, other than me is crazy about it, which is so different from my sister's place, where everyone loves rajma aka red bean curry. So, I decided to make red bean and Swiss chard kofta or balls  and cook them in a curry. You know something works when you don't have left overs. I was really happy with this curry and I hope you guys try it too. Glad the family gave it a 5 stars.

Sunday stills - Happy Mother's day !
 Mothers shape our lives like no other, there is no other relationship that is stronger and more impactful in a person's life than a mother n' child. I have been blessed with a mom who is strong and wise, fun loving and witty...she's strong as a pillar in my life. Ever major decision I have taken in my life is not without her consultation. I wish I could be like her.

To all the women out there, mothers, sisters, aunts and friends - Happy Mother's Day ! You make the world a better place.  Yes everyday is Mother's day but let's make this day special - and celebrate womanhood and motherhood.

Mango ice cream sundae with strawberry compote

Creamy mango ice cream with a strawberry swirl, flavored with dried hibiscus petals. How can you go wrong with this combination. I also used the straw berry compote to serve as a sundae, aren't sundaes the best way to indulge.

I am sure you want to go straight to the recipe. How about we sit down in my backyard, I'll pull another chair and we can eat our ice cream and talk about food and ice cream and the endless possibility of flavors ?  Or we could go on a visual journey through my lens. I promise to keep the post short, so made a collage of some of  my favorite spring flowers.

Now having promised you that there will me less words and more visual treat, I take you down my street ...........
