Eeshan's Ode to the humble khichadi.

Everyone who close to me knows that I love eating food in one bowl and Khichadi the most. I love khichadi and experiment each time to make the normal slightly fun.
From a mutton stew Khichadi, broccoli khichdi, and even pumpkin khichadi with coco dust. Making my humble dish exciting.

What is comfort food to you?

Comfort food for me is something which is easy to cook, interesting enough to make me happy and not so fussy. Like a simple khichadi with lots of toppings...

Dressing up food at home - an indulgence or ritual?

Honestly, I celebrate food every day. We lay our table every day and have fun with the crockery, cutlery, glassware, and setups. Mix-match textures, materials, and even seats.
Its a ritual and one must do it. With the lock down, the setups have even become more bizarre with big palm leaves as my underlined to food being served on sculptures.

Mix- Match Textures, Materials, It's a ritual and one must do it.
