Mint Chutney

This basic chutney can be had with anything as a dipping sauce; from batata vadas to tandoori chicken.

Batata Vada

Batata Vada is a traditional street snack found everywhere in Mumbai. This is the poor man’s breakfast, lunch and/or dinner as it can be eaten at any time and still suffices as a meal. As a broke student at St. Xavier’s College, it was my go-to meal in between English Literature lectures.

This chili is a fun twist on a traditional dish, and is perfect for fall and winter nights. IF you have any leftovers, they only get better and better!  

Goan Xinaneao (Mussels)

The fishmongers’ tables would be gleaming with ocean fish, shrimp, crabs, lobsters and shellfish. One of my favorite shellfish is mussels and here’s my mother’s very simple recipe. In Konkani, the language spoken widely in Goa, mussels are called ‘Xinaneao’ or pronounced shee-naa-neo.
