Uttapam with some onion, tomato, green chilli and yum herbed almond feta from @katharosfoods. 🧀 They gave me a sample of their almond feta cheese a little while ago and @veganbombayboy and I have been snacking on it just by itself besides using it in recipes. It's crumbly and delicious 😍 and I love that it's made with clean, simple ingredients - almonds (98%), Himalayan salt, lemon, garlic, thyme and water. And zero oil! ✅ . 🌱RECIPE: ONION TOMATO UTTAPAM WITH ALMOND FETA 🌱 • Uttapam batter (This was made at home by my mom but you could just buy a readily available one. I usually buy idli batter and dilute it for making uttapam.) • 1 tomato, chopped • 1 onion, chopped • 1 green chilli, chopped • Almond feta @katharosfoods . 1. Pour the batter in a pan and spread evenly. Immediately top with onion, tomato, green chilli and crumble some almond feta. 2. Cook for 3-4 minutes and flip to cook the other side for another 3-4 minutes. 3. Take off pan. Top with some more feta. 😋 Serve with some coconut chutney. I had it with some coriander-coconut chutney and beet sauerkraut from @bombucha.in. . Love how vegan product options are increasing by the day in Mumbai - and even better when they're super healthy vegan options! #wfpbno . . .
Vegan nutella sourdough toast! 🤤😍😍🌱 Bought this delish @buttersandmore Hazelnut Cocoa butter sweetened with organic palm jaggery (different from and healthier than regular sugarcane jaggery) @ahimsafest last month. So creamy and just lightly sweetened - perfect for those like me who have a sweet tooth but prefer a richer, deeper dark chocolate flavour to overly sweet commercial dessert. 🍫🍮🍰🍦 . I slathered a generous helping on The Baker's Dozen @freshattbd Four-seed whole wheat sourdough (topped with pumpkin, sesame, flax and sunflower seeds) ordered via @scootsyit. Super yum and crunchy when toasted but didn't seem sour/fermented enough to me. Nevertheless, I was thrilled with my combo - so satisfying! Also, I loved that the bread was delivered plastic-free in a paper bag. . . .
Tried something different besides our standard order at Fabcafé Kemps! • Very Berry Smoothie Bowl (Mixed berry smoothie bowl topped with housemade granola and fresh fruit) 🍓 - A good breakfast option • Spinach, Spring Onion & Water Chestnut Momos (Wheat-free momos made with jackfruit flour & root starches, lightly filled & served with a garlic, chives dip) 🥟 - Yum as always! • Green Pea & Mushroom Cashew Curry and Organic Quinoa Roti 🍄 - Our fave but really wish they could have more vegan options in Mains! . 📍@fabcafe.in, Tardeo, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
This mocha deserved a spot on my feed because: 1. It's vegan, of course ☕ 2. It's made with my fave peppermint chocolate from @masonandco_chocolate 🍫 3. Made with @good.mylk cashew-oat mylk at no extra charge! 😲 4. It's in a blue cup! 🤩 . Swipe to see some more blues - my favourite colour if you haven't figured that out already! 😁The Little Book of #Hygge, cork laptop sleeve from @arturedesign in the background, and a bit of my navy blue hemp dress from @blabelindia. #ecofriendly . This particular location is inside a car showroom but we'd gone on a weekend and it was quiet and cosy. . 📍@bluetokaicoffee, CR2 Mall, Nariman Point, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
Starting our meal with dessert! 🤩We were excited to see this vegan Orange Chocolate Chip Cake 🍊🍫🍰 on the menu at The Nutcracker so we had to get it while we waited for our food. It was a nice tea cake with a hint of orange - we gobbled it up in just a few minutes. We also got: • Lebanese Brunch Bowl - quinoa, sava millet (barnyard? I think), hummus, muhammara, baby potatoes, mushrooms, ragi (finger millet) chips - The muhammara was sweet and didn't taste like what it should at all, but the rest of the bowl was good. • Handmade Mushroom Ravioli 🍄 in a creamy vegan sauce - Generously stuffed with mushrooms though the pasta could've been more delicate. The sauce was rich and creamy but a bit salty so next time I'd request them to make it less salty. . I'd been to their Bandra and Fort outlets years ago when they weren't as vegan-friendly so @veganbombayboy and I were excited to try it now with all the increased vegan options. The place was packed and food took long (over 30 minutes) though I'm hoping it's because the place is new! . 📍@thenutcrackermumbai, Palladium, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
Grandmama's cafe 👵🏼 finally has a separate (and elaborate) vegan menu! Went and checked it out with my cousin last month and we were very pleased. We got: • Quinoa and hummus salad - good ✅ • Bloom bread - cheesy, bready goodness with my fave @softspotfoods cheese 🤤😋 • Peri peri mushroom pizza - good too 🍄🍕 . There's so much more on this menu (posting it in my Stories now) that I'll surely be going back to try more. Glad they finally have these options! #plantpower 🌱🤩 . Also, did any of you try Veganuary? How did it go? And if you didn't get a chance, why not try a vegan February? 😊🤗 . 📍@grandmamascafe, Kemps Corner, Mumbai 🇮🇳 . . .
When Google Assistant takes you back to a time full of amazing memories... Christmas in Peru 🇵🇪 in 2014. 📅 This was the first country of my three-month solo trip across South America. ✈️🌎 Four years later, it still feels surreal... At times I can't believe I did this but it was surely the best decision I've ever made! 😇 I still remember the mixed feelings and slight panic I felt the night that I was leaving home but a few days into the trip, I felt so calm and settled...wherever I was felt like home! 🏡 It's not very common for Indian women (especially Gujarati women) to travel solo so I'm even more grateful for this life-changing experience! 🌟 . This🎄tree made from plastic bottles was in Aguas Calientes, the sleepy town from where you can visit the fascinating citadel of Machu Picchu. . . . #grateful #throwback #peru #machupicchu #indiantraveller #visitperu #exploreperu #southamerica #visitsouthamerica #travel #travelblogger #travelgram #doyoutravel #gujju #ladiesgoneglobal #iamatraveler #gujarati #beautifuldestinations #theculturetrip #instatravel #travelphotography #igtravel #traveladdict #forbestravelguide #saynotoplastic #christmas #merrychristmas #christmastree #christmastime #christmaseve
Loooooved watching the Broadway musical, Hairspray, on the @symphonyoftheseas1. Best seats thanks to our Royal Genie, Sunil. I liked this a lot more than Cats on #oasisoftheseas last summer. My niece had such a good time, she wanted to watch it again! So impressed with the entertainment options on this ship. 🤩🚢 . . . #throwback #cruiselife #cruisetime #cruise #cruiseship #royalcaribbean #royalcaribbeancruise #symphonyoftheseas #royalcaribbeanblog #hairspray #musical #ship #cruising #familyholiday #traveldiaries #travelgram #instatravel #traveller #adiventuroustravels #bestseats #royalgenie #potd #picoftheday #indiantraveller #travelling #vacation #happy #fun
