When I worked with Aon Hewitt, I had a team led by Amit Gautam that did “batch processing”. While I understood the work they did, I couldn’t use the concept in my daily life till more recently. For the past three to four months, I have been doing batch processing for replenishing the groceries. Earlier … Read more Batch Processing Groceries
A couple of days back I ordered donuts from Krispy Kreme. I was eating donuts after nearly two or three years. Krishnan and I enjoyed our respective first donuts but the second one was just not fun. We decided right away never to order donuts again :). The problem with restaurant food is that its … Read more Fresh Food
A couple of days back I made Puliyodharai, aka Pulihora aka Tamarind rice. Its a speciality of mine and my puliyodharai has been certified by no less than my mother-in-law, whose Puliyodharai was and will always be the best. Till I learnt OPOS, I would use the MTR Puliyodharai powder but the minute I learnt … Read more Puliyodharai – a complete meal
This post is specially dedicated to my childhood friend Adeeti… She wanted to know how we manage to travel with our kitchen.

Some are useful, like the ones related to exercise or cooking or time saving hacks but there are dozens that talk of the Royals and Priyanka Chopra’s … Read more Broccoli-Cashew soup
When RK spoke of themes in cuisines around the world on the OPOS FB page, it was just knowledge but it hadn’t become an experience yet. The themes idea just got internalised last week. In the past week, I made OPOS VadaKari and OPOS Kothu Paratha. Both are really easy to make and a huge … Read more Same Base, Two different items
Today I made the OPOS Brinji for lunch (will post the recipe in a different blog). Krishnan and Amma were watching the segments of the Tamil Super Singer finals that they had missed. I don’t watch that program except when someone is exceptionally gifted and sings well. Like all singing competitions this one also has … Read more Are you easy to help?
Today’s lunch was noodles for Krishnan and I. Amma ate a little because it was made at home and then went to her rice and rasam :). Its a huge progress from the days when she would refuse to eat anything that was called noodles or pasta or macaroni. Food is a such a deep … Read more Noodles in a jiffy !
