Back in the day when we were still in school, Mum made yummy tiffin every day. I still marvel at the thought that she would prepare such a variety of tiffin for us early mornings, before we all rushed to catch the school bus. One of my favourite packed lunches was pohe. And while regular pohe (North Indian style) with onions, potatoes, and cilantro was a regular on weekends, Mum would make delicious Tomato Pohe or Peas Pohe for tiffin.

A simple recipe for a quick lunch today. Though asparagus is a seasonal vegetable, we sometime also get it around the festive period. I love asparagus and if I see it I just can't resist buying it. Usually we eat it sauteed in olive oil and butter with lots and lots of garlic. But sometimes I also make Indian style recipes with it. Asparagus Pepper Rice is one of the easiest ways to use asparagus and any left over rice. It is a great add on item for a family lunch or dinner.

Arisi Upma | Rice Upma | Savoury Cream of Rice Porridge is one of my favourite dishes for breakfast. I love serving it up with raita, plain yogurt, and a variety of chutneys. Its simply the most comforting food on cold winter mornings with a warm cup of tea on the side. This upma is a wonderful variation on the traditional upma but is a lot less heavy. It is easily digestible and also has a lighter taste.
