Food plays a major part of our my case, either I am cooking food, or planning what to cook, or on my way home thinking about what to cook or hungry and thinking what snack can I grab at work 😆. Food is also how we show our loved ones we care...mother making sure her kids get fresh food for lunch or dinner, you cook for your partner making sure they like it and vice versa, you bring hot food for a friend who has been sick, for your furry friends you make treats to make sure they are getting nutrition and good taste.... Food is our primary need and a best way to show someone You care... On the plate is spicy hot pitla just the way mister likes it, with green moong, fries green chilies and hot rotis #homemade #homecook #lovetocook #lovetoeat #indianfood #indian #vegetarianrecipes #vegetarian #vegetarianfood #desistyle #desitadka #indianfoodsquad #indianfoodie #bostonfoodie
The story of Veg Biryani....a biryani connoisseur will tell you there is no such thing as vegetarian biryani...., but since we vegetarians will beg to differ since we can definitely say that there’s a difference between Pulav and Biryani, so there’s such a thing as vegetarian biryani....might not be as delicious like it’s mutton counterpart to the meat eaters...but to us it is just amazing😃. Made egg biryani few nights ago and lip smacking good...even if I say it myself! 😆 🍽🍽🍽🍽 #vegetarian #vegbiryani #eggbiryani #lovetocook #lovetoeat #ricelover #indianfood #indianfoodlover #indianinme #indianinboston #bostonfoodie #foodstagram #instafood #indianfoodsquad
