  • Harissa Corn Chowder

    A light corn chowder is just what the unseasonably warm weather that we had this week called for making. Although, it’s the kind of soup that’s really perfect for any weather. Juicy plump bites of corn amongst creamy soft potato bites with sweet carrots chunks surrounded by a rich, naturally creamy and sweet soup backed […]

  • Vegetarian Chicken Noodle Soup

    This simple vegetarian version of a chicken noodle soup has become of my favorite Instant creations. The broth is super simple but gives you the comforting feeling of what I imagine drinking warm, liquid butter would be like. I spice it up with white pepper and add a healthy squeeze of lemon juice to round it […]

  • Baked Potato Soup

    When I get an idea in my head, it’s hard to get it out.  The first is that when I saw these bowls in Crate and Barrel, I knew I needed to make a soup worthy of eating from them.  The second is that when I heard New York was getting 7 to 12 inches […]

  • Stone Soup

    It gets dark early.  My light fall coat is not really cutting it.  And I should be wearing a scarf.  But I’m in denial that the seasons are changing.  I mean, I know summer is over.  Right?  It’s over.  I know.  It’s over.  But the 48 degree weather outside is practically (by my definition) “winter” […]

  • Red Lentil and Smashed Garlic Soup

  • Lemony Spinach Lentils (Spinach Pappu)

    Two huge events have happened in my life within the last week.  First, I snuck away to have a baby.  Our beautiful baby girl, Surya, arrived last Thursday and we have been completely preoccupied with loving on her ever since.  Second, I’ve turned over my kitchen to my mother for the next three weeks.  Fortunately, […]

  • 15 Minute Creamy Corn and Potato Soup

    I had to share this with you right away.  Tonight’s creamy corn soup with knobs of tender potatoes and juicy corn kernels was sweet, spicy, fresh and belly warming and above all so quick and easy.  Here in New York, Fall has been rolling in and out battling against the few 80 degree days we’ve […]

  • Market Greens with Split Peas

    Do you have a grocery item that maintains a permanent on your weekly grocery list?  Something you know you can make use of no matter what your weekly menu?  Something that never dies a slow death in your crisper?  Greens.  They are always on my list, and they never go to waste.  Kale, collard greens, […]

  • Locaware: Green Tomato Lentil Stew

    I talk to my parents everyday and each evening I look forward to asking what they’re having for dinner.  It’s always something I wish I was eating too (which is half the reason I started cooking in the first place).  A few weeks back, my dad told me they were having locaware.  Undoubtably, a joke […]

  • Charu Au Poix (French Inspired Rasam)

    This is a guest post written by Raj Bala, Nithya’s brother, who is incidentally also a hungry desi. The French settled a colony in India called Pondicherry in 1673 on the Southeast coast of India. Their influence on the city is still evident today even though they didn’t necessarily fare as well in terms of […]
