meatless Monday

Chickpea Chilli

by Khushboo on April 3, 2017

Happy Monday guys!  The next few days are going to be jam-packed with getting as much work done as possible before I leave for Athens on Wednesday night.  Although feta & tzatziki are both hugely on the brain, let’s talk Mexican food for a sec.  Despite the 15,085 kilometers distance between India & Mexico, the […]


If you’re following me on Snapchat, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been having plenty of fun in the kitchen lately.  And if you’re not, you probably should be: kvthadani4 – shameless plug I know #SorryImNotSorry.  After a long while of eating repeat meals, I am starting to remember the joy of being in the kitchen.  […]


K Weigh Penne alla Vodka

by Khushboo on March 28, 2016

While there are a number of perks that come with writing a blog, one of my absolute favorites is having a platform to share my excitement about food with others who feel the same. A good example is this gorgeous bowl of Penne alla Vodka I made for dinner last week:  For those of you […]


Protein Pizza

by Khushboo on September 14, 2015

In my group of childhood friends in Nigeria, each of our homes was known for at least one specialty dish.  For example, my friend Rids had brownies & cheese balls; we always requested crispy noodles at Nitya’s home; Ayesha’s pantry was always filled with the best variety of crisps & biscuits; Henna’s baked spaghetti was […]


 My mom got back from London a couple of weeks ago and was telling me about some of the foods she ate over there.  It’s a good thing that I am planning to be in London for a lengthy amount of time over the summer- my list of restaurants to try has only gotten longer, […]


A quickie

by Khushboo on March 12, 2015

Hi guys!  Hope your weeks are going well!  This post is going to be a quickie because I can’t focus enough to write a coherent post. You might remember that I posted about my sister being pregnant.  I’m so excited, proud, jubilated, and every other synonym that can contain a fraction of the emotion I […]


Thinking out loud

by Khushboo on December 18, 2014

Hey guys!  Today is one of those days where I have various little things to blog about, none of which deserve their own post so get ready for a word vomit…or in more socially appropriate terms, I’m thinking out loud with my girl Amanda: I loved reading all your comments to Monday’s post on Staying […]


I know, I know: “No good story ever started with someone eating a salad”, but trust me some salads are an exception.  Before I get into salad talk, I wanted to share a story on rice: A few months ago, my mom had invited her friends over for drinks/snacks.  I say snacks but in Indian lingo, […]


Chickpea Tacos

by Khushboo on October 24, 2012

Although I grew up in Nigeria & London, I’ve always been Indian at heart.  After living in Mumbai for 2.5 years,  I’ve definitely become even more Indian: My speaking still needs work, but it’s heck of a lot better than when I moved here I can watch a Hindi movie without subtitles Despite my fear […]
