Ila Dubey Dhulipala

I'm passionate about good nutrition and maintaining a conscious kitchen and trying to make organic, healthy, and sustainable choices. With home-cooking foodies on both sides of the family, a definitely-gourmet husband, kids with equally strong and very diverse tastes, there's never a dull day, and no shortage of food for the soul, mind, body and blog.

Green Tomato Chutney

A tart sauce with the addition of spicy chilis is a great way to use up an abundance of tomatoes. Plus, it goes great on sandwiches, with grilled meats, or with dosas.

Plum Granita

When in season, plums are delicious just like the are. However, to get in the summer spirit, we challenge you to a simply sweet plum granita.

Pumpkin Leaf Subzi

Pumpkin Leaf Subzi

Did you know pumpkin leaves are edible? They are, and quite delicious and nutritious as well, cooked with rice and Indian spices.

Salted Popped Lotus Seeds

Salted Popped Lotus Seeds

Makhane, or Phool Makhane as they’re sometimes called, are the popped seeds or nuts of the lotus plant and they make a great popcorn-replacement snack.
