Kadhai Paneer (Cottage Cheese Curry) 

So there we were..I hadn’t had a night out with a friend sans family for like aeons. It was like a scene out a sci-fi flick where the alien steps it’s foot (right to be precise) out from the spaceship onto earth for the first time and curiously scans the new environment…yep! that was pretty much me.

You would know of the three wishes a Genie grants but this evening I had three whinges that I grant me. First of all we end up in a restaurant that as per reviews was supposed to be one of the best in my city. Food was just ok…you know timepass but a bit on the pricey side. Oh why oh why did I not suggest good ole Maccas instead. Could have niptaya/tackled my mate in cheap lol (hoping he never reads this😁).

Secondly it was meant to be Chinese food but ended up western eastern confused infusion with a twist. Thirdly we sat near an old and shabby window corner which made me worry I’de be consuming more dust than food as the cool breeze between the cracks (sounds so wrong😁) blows it into my rice. We managed to survive the evening after being interrupted by my buddys humble iphone which went off every five minutes. Although I must say I wasn’t complaining as I sat there scanning the view of a spunk out the window which looked pretty interesting to me (wink! wink!😉).

Anyway so there we were and I was intent on being the observer this time and allow my buddy to talk while I listened for a change. My aim was to ensure he was being pampered and well fed in exchange for the countless sessions I’ve had with him which saved me thousands on a shrinks fee. Well we have a saying in Hindi “bakre ko halaal karne se pahle usko achche se khilao pilao” (hinglish translation – goat sacrificing before we do we feed and quench it really well 😂). After all, my buddies are my best and most patient sounding boards. The poor things they sure get a good piece of my lifes annoying rantings. Gotta impress them in some way so through their stomachs it is then.

Good food and good water (we love our Canberra tap water) and great company was all that was needed. Before we dug into the first bite there was a question which has often lingered on my mind so I asked my friend “Umm why is that we place the serviette on our laps rather than around our neck? I find it annoying as it keeps slipping off my lap onto the floor. As far as I know I drop food on my top half rather than my lap half”. He proceeded to give me a long dreary response about how he would reach closer to his plate and as he’s about to take a bite..oops! he would drop it on his lap blah! blah! blah!…yawn.😴 I was half listening to what he was rambling on about. How rude do I hear you say? Haah!..the truth is I was just feeling immensely relieved..phew! Luckily just like me, my buddy can be a tubelight as well (flickers a few seconds before lighting up) and couldn’t figure out my “speed hump” issue.😂 I had then wished I shouldn’t have said what I did but hey!…wait a minute…he wouldn’t be my BFF (Best Friend Forever) if I had to watch what I say right? 

Friends…simply the best..bumps, humps, scars and all.😘😘

Kekda Tarkari (Crab Curry)

Hi everyone apologies for going MIA for quite sometime. I know a recipe is pretty much well overdue now.

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances in the family I won’t be posting any of my crazy stories anytime soon. I know many of my readers look forward to my stories but I have to be in great spirits to compose them which is currently near to impossible. I will continue to post recipes and special guest posts for you all whenever it’s possible. Thanks for your understanding and continued support. 😊😘

Anyways here’s a recipe contributed by my mum Oline for you all to enjoy.

1kg Blue Swimmer Crabs 

1 Big Onion/Pyaz Finely Chopped

10-15 Curry leaves

1 Tbspn Garlic/ Lehsun Paste

1 Tbspn Ginger/ Adrak Paste

2 Tspn Garam Masala

1 Tspn Turmeric/ Haldi

1 Tspn Hot Chilli Powder (optional)

2-3 Fresh Chillies (optional)

4 Medium Tomatoes Finely Chopped

1/4 Cup Tamarind/Imli Infused Liquid

Salt to taste

Oil For Cooking

Coriander/Dhaniya For Garnish


• Pour about a 1/4 cup of boiling hot water in a bowl with the tamarind pulp. Set aside and allow it to infuse until it cools. Squeeze and discard the tamarind. Keep the remaining infused liquid for later use. Alternatively you can purchase ready Tamarind paste/puree from the Asian/Indian grocers. 

• Heat oil in a pot/pan and add the chopped onions. Sauté until translucent then add ginger, garlic and fresh chillies and allow it to brown lightly.

Aloo Methi Tarkari – Potatoes And Fenugreek Leaves Curry

Today’s story inspiration came into my crazy head at the spur of the moment. This is what happens when your child is safely tucked into bed and you get the rest of the evening to do exactly as you please even if you so desire to rain dance in your birthday suit. Ooooh! yeah this is my time…my time to do something as crazy as this story about Barbie. 

Recently I’ve been quite active on social media such as Facebook and Instagram although a newbie on Insta so don’t forget to follow me on https://instagram.com/feedingthesonis. Social networking is also just one of the ways to keep myself from going insane with my chronic pains. One needs to vent somewhere.

So anyway to the point..there I was planning my little munchkins birthday party and sending invites to a group of friends via FB messenger (how time’s have changed). A friend asked if it was going to be a Bollywood theme like the previous year and I told him that wasn’t going to be the case this year. He was hugely relieved he wouldn’t be coerced into wearing a saree and the poor guy doesn’t even lean that way the slightest bit..hmmmm unless he leads a secretive double life which I’m not aware of.😁

The topic that was discussed between us friends started from sarees to pole dancing to accidental undraping of it on the kids jumping castle. A nice clean topic turns into a trashy excerpt of an erotic novel. They say great minds think alike..that’s the case with my group of friends. And as always I get accused of being the instigator. These special few are fondly nick named FWFB or Friends With Fringe Benefits. We are all current or ex Finance colleagues who are as crazy as I am. The conversations over lunches, coffees and dinners all begin with intense subjects and end up going a totally different direction and that too without any influence of the alcoholic kind. The company itself is quite intoxicating I tells ya!

After we wrapped up our conversation with our lol’s, ooh’s, umm’s and aah’s I decided to grab myself some dessert from the kitchen. On my way there (it’s a bit of a walk you see) my glance fell on my daughter’s Barbie doll which was lying face down on the dining table. Her hair was dishevelled and saree slightly loosened at the hips. Of course that very moment my crazy brain felt a sudden gush of rush and flashbacked to a tragic Bollywood movie scene thus the birth of this outrageous short story. Some of you may find it humourous some might think I should be locked up with the keys thrown out into the sea….either way hope you enjoy it. 

So here is todays special short film in stills.

FWFB – Friends With Fringe Benefits presents BARBIE GOES TO BOLLYWOOD!

Cast – Barbie, Ken, Ramesh Babu aka Rocco.

Special Appearance – Trees, Flowers, Birds, Bees, 

Supporting Cast – Chotu and the Rain. 

Meet our Bollywood Indian Barbie the super gorgeous main character of this film. 

 The true desi gurl! Isn’t she a beauty?

  Scene 1 – Barbie’s in the kitchen bored with having to cook aloo methi for dinner. She stirs the pot and sighs…wishing to have a home of her own and cooking for her hero Ken after marriage.

Scene 2 – Barbie gets a phone call from Ken pleading with her to meet him the following day at Lover’s Point so they can elope together. She enthusiastically starts to pack her 12 suitcases with her outfits and jewelleries. She is feeling a bit excited yet apprehensive fearing her parents reaction on finding out about her escapade. Barbie spends the entire night tossing and turning in bed as she imagines being in the arms of her love for eternity. 

Scene 3 – Barbie is anxiously waiting at Lover’s Point for Ken as she watches the birds and the bees buzz by. Nature seems like the most beautiful thing in the world to her as she starts humming her favourite Bollywood romance song. 

Scene 4 – Barbie drifts into her thoughts and next thing you know she’s in a barnyard. Enters rain…pouring down on her drenching her saree which now clings onto her figure defining her curves. Suddenly her pallu drops (the top bit that sits oh her shoulder) and she begins to heave her bosoms (you would think she’s having an asthma attack) then instead of a line dancing number she breaks into a bollywood item number song 🎶Kaate nahi kat teh yeh din yeh raat…kehni thi tumse joh dil ki baat..loh aaj main kehti huuuuu…uuuuu…I love youuuuuuu🎶 (Hinglish – unable to spend my day and night even if I want to…want to tell you my heart talk…today I tell youuuuu…uuuuuu…I love youuuuuuu!). 

Scene 5 – Hours tick by Tick! Tock! Tick! Tock! Ken doesn’t turn up so she returns home devastated. Days turn into weeks and Barbie is still pining for her lover Ken (violin music softly playing in the background which makes your eyes well up with tears not in empathy for Barbie’s situation but because of the darn tune🎼). 

Scene 6 – Breaking news!!!! Chotu the Maali Ramu Kaka’s son (gardener’s son) is seen running to and breaking the news to Barbie. “Didi! didi! Ken bhaiyya Rajdhani express doh chalees ki train pakad kar Mumbai chale gaye…ab wohh kabhi wapas nahi aenge…usko uska sachcha pyar Ramesh Babu (Rocco) mil gaya“. (Hinglish – “sister sister Ken brother caught 2:40 Rajdhani Express train to Mumbai and is gone…now he will never return…he has found his true love in Ramesh Babu aka Rocco”).

Barbie begins to cry uncontrollably (🎼violin music playing even louder now).

The movie ends with Ken exchanging garlands and bharring (filling) Ramesh Babu’s maang (hair parting). Ken recites the wedding vows “ek chutki sindoor ki keemat tum kya jano Ramesh babu” (Hinglish – “one pinch vermillions value what you know of Ramesh babu?”).

Enters Salman Khan who cameos away on his bike with Barbie with the promise of making her a big star in the Mumbai film industry.

Happy ending..everybody’s looking for a happy ending!

Remember… it’s a FWFB – Friends With Fringe Benefits production.

Steamed Tofu In Ginger Curry Leaves – Guest Post By Reader Sohamrita Minie Saran

My special guest today is all the way from USA. She is Sohamrita Minie Saran. How do I know her? Well I first noticed Sohamrita on Facebook. Yep! would you believe I have met some really wonderful people on Facebook with whom I now share very close friendships with. Sohamrita had “liked” a pic on my profile of my daughter Mishka and of course me and my curiosity led me to her profile. That’s when I learnt that she was actually one of my sister-in-law Shalini’s friend. 

As I was going through her profile I was falling in love. Then as I was scrolling down further I began to drool. By the time I was finished with Sohamrita’s profile I was not only hungry but in love…hungrily in love!. I fell head over heels in love with her amazing and absolutely gorgeous artwork and drooling over the images of her creative Vegan cuisines. I knew instantly I wanted to feature her on my blog. It’s an absolute honour that Sohamrita accepted my offer to do this post for me. 


Sohamrita Minie Saran


Sohamrita please share with my readers something about yourself. 

Thank you Sanjana for your heartfelt introduction and welcoming me to your blog world. I am filled with gratitude for your friendship.

I was born in New DelhiIndia, 35 years ago. I lived in India for 30 years before moving to US after my marriage. I did my post graduation in Business management and enjoyed a rewarding career span of 7 years in Corporate Human Resources before I relocated to US.  

Over past 5 years my interests diversified to Arts, writing, sufi poetry, dance, volunteerism as I rebirthed into a new form of life, of living in Devotion and loving surrender.

Let’s start with your paintings. So how long has it been since you first began painting?

began to paint in 2012. I am self taught and I paint as and when the spirit moves me. I am not a professional artist. Each of my paintings is an offering to the Great spirit who is absolute and most wonderful.

Please tell us about the inspiration behind your paintings and how it all came about?

I was always drawn to visual and performing Arts. I feel when one creates a piece of art either by way of cooking, singing, dancing or painting… one is in state of Grace. Grace surrounds us when we flow in blissful stream of self expression and state of receptivity which are also strong feminine qualities and so very harmonizing.

Painting to me is like stepping into a state of wholeness where I experience ‘Being’ more than ‘doing’. In this state I feel more receptive, attentive and awareI also find it very persistent in my experience that when I simply allow inspiration to flow through without determining much of its form, the outcome far exceeds my expectations of myself

I paint more in my ‘devotee‘ flow state, it is uplifting, feeds the longing of my soul at many levels and shapes my art. also find myself in this state of Grace when I dance .

I noticed your artwork signifies The Lord Krishna, Radha and Meera. Tell us about your love for Lord Krishna and your paintings in depth.

This journey of experiencing devotion and attraction for RadheKrishna has been the most elevating and potent influence I have felt in my life. I do believe Krishna’ through His unlimited potencies and inconceivable ways controls access to Him and reveals himself very selectively to the ones who deeply yearn for a relationship with Creatorin form of Krishna. A relationship beyond conventional affection for God/source /creator . I was always drawn to Divinity but some years back my life had been effected innumerous categories beyond my grasp and control. In those moments was when I first began to feel a  painful longing for knowing my creator and knowing His plans for meWhat did this Being desire of me? I wished to enter into a more meaningful conscious relationship with God. During that phase I was also training in Hypnosis Therapy and Advanced Reiki, my interest was also getting drawn to reading Vedic scriptures and books on transcendental science. Chanting, meditating, journaling and choosing solitude was a big chunk of what used to flow into my days.

During this time, my friendship with a very special friend ‘Soma Devo’ who is a  shamanic healer and someone who has endured much of his life in extreme conditions and in advanced surrenderstarted to grow stronger . I turned to him with meaningful questions and through the revelations in our discussions I came to recognize KrishnaGradually, I was received in the understanding that ‘Krishna’ was that Infinite being whom I had been aching and yearning to feel communion with. Soma, was the greatest ever influence over me that strengthened God consciousness and a strong faith flow in me.

Longing is both a call and path we must take. Once the longing for God is awakened in our heart, we can neither escape nor betray. I started  to feel a yearning to offer myself up to Him in every moment of my day. I would meditate on Him while I would brush my teeth or make my bed. I would go about doing everything in my house like I was doing for Krishna. From food offerings to folding clothes the thousandth time. I fell in Love with Him more and more each passing day. The more I offered the more He drew my heart and attraction to Him. Painting, is just a small component of my offering. I see Krishna in all details within everything I experience including sorrow and pain. I witness Him in the form my life is shaping day to day Krishna to me is not just as a worshipable Deity. To me Krishna is beyond just feeling awe and Reverence for. To me He embodies the power of Divine attraction. He is most wonderful,  intimate companion to me. Meditating on Krishna’s form, beauty and opulence’s is distracting beyond point of addiction. 

And, where there is Krishna, there is Radhe– His Feminine Shakti, His eternal consort who loves Krishna so deeply to a point of losing all self consciousness. When I meditate on Radha, I can feel her presence and admiration for her. I always invite Her to flow through me into everything I do as an offering to Krishna. One cannot develop communion with Krishna without mercy of Radharani. Radha’s ultimate gift is the experience of our love filling everyone that comes in our association, including the plants, the broken potholes on road ..everything. So much so that the Earth itself feels like an extension of one’s Divine Beloved. I feel erotically infused with Devotion to Radhe Krishna . This is my most valid state when I feel embraced by love and union. If I am tuned out, I suffer internally. Its a way of life, moment to moment that completely engages all my senses. I  paint for Krishna, I dance for Him, I cook for Him and I experience Him in the most mundanenest of chores and demands of everyday life.
So when I am in the mood to paint, I simply offer an intention to paint for RadheKrishna, asking for their Grace and auspicious energy to flow into the painting.


Radhe – Yogini Of Love


Do you make an income out of your artwork?

My friend Soma Devo,  inspired and encouraged me to consider ‘gifting’ my paintings as a way ofoffering to RadheKrishna . He is an incredible Artist himself, and has created exceptionally stunning paintings in his devotee flow . My husband is a great support to me. He pushes and encourages me to paint and explore all my creative callings.

recognize that I give my work to Krishna and not really the recipient. So, I have gifted some of my paintings and remaining are some incomplete work I am working on slowly. I do intend to hold an exhibition in near future . I wish to place the monetary returns in hands of Krishna. This is the first lesson I learned from Soma on Faith flow. In faith flow, there is no planning on returns. With Trust there is not just material returns but spiritual ones as faith feeds the relationship with GodThis makes ‘giving’ more of a spiritual joy experience rather than monetary one. 

Can you tell us a bit about one of your favourite paintings?

I give each painting my all. I feel very centered in them as my love for Krsna has profound impact on my experience of painting. I feel the paintings I have gifted so far have all been very special. The First one that I painted for a friend was on  a theme Krishna playing flute’. To date that is the most most special paintingWhen I have my friends who receive the paintings, I feel I have gifted them something more special than just a painting! I feel in this way Krishna is also giving me service by way of sharing Him with others and in this way I feel I am with Him in all ways. Every painting I paint feeds my devotion and that is a gift to life.

Now let’s move onto food. Please tell us how you became a Vegan? Was it by choice or by birth?

My vegan journey started in 2013. I was as is withdrawing from meat. I had stopped smoking and I felt a strong desire to quit drinking wine. I was naturally feeling inclined to realign my life with main focus on what I was eating

One day I happened  to watch Earthlings, a detailed documentary on untold suffering from brutal exploitation and killings of animal species for milk, meat  food, leather and vanity purposes. That was a wake up call for me. Food since than is not just something with a nutritional value but a significant spiritual significance. I feel as long as I consumed meat and products, I willfully denied the torture and suffering innocent, defenseless animals had to endure in the process. To me that felt like living in a very restricted and disconnected reality. 

A lot has changed and realigned in my being since I turned vegan.

How did you feel when I approached you with the offer of a guest post on my blog?

I was taken by surprise. Thank you for this beautiful gestureBut, must give all credits to my Mom when it comes to cooking. She is an incredible woman of strength and Patience. She is an absolute Goddess when it comes to cooking and serving her family! Much of my inspiration and love for cooking I take from her. 

Have you ever read any of the posts on my blog? If you have whats your opinion about my stories and in particular the vegetarian Fijian recipes?

When I visited your blog, I felt the warmth of your love for family, cooking and life as I read the blog chronicles. I particularly liked the street food pani poori post. It brought back my memories of being in India. Your style of writing is very personal and one takes an instant interest in all the excitement filled moments that feature in each story. You set the mood for chai and having conversation with a friend.

What benefits have you found from your Vegan diet? 

I feel more aligned with reality, beauty, grace and I have understood the true meaning of Compassion.  I do not see any value in classifying animals as cute or edible. They are all innocent and sentient beings carrying in them their own intrinsic value. They are here for their own purpose, to enjoy their own existence. We as Humans need to respect and protect that. Only can then, we can hope for peace on this planet.

Animal Farming is the number one cause of World Hunger, Violence, green gas emission, pollution of rivers, destruction of Biodiversity and ecology imbalance on earth, apart from Dietary related ill effects on health. There has been enough studies and reports by WFO and other official resources that point out strong evidences to prove how lethal animal farming and animal food is at all levels.  

The biggest benefit, I feel after turning vegan is contentment and joy of simplicity.

What advice do you have for my readers if they decide to transition to a Vegan diet and lifestyle? How easy or difficult is the process? 

Please remind yourself each day that the Nature offers us (unless we are living on a far deserted island with absolutely no source of plant food) with abundance of plant based, healthy, environmentally friendly alternatives to violent and ecologically devastating food and lifestyle choices. Please choose compassion every day, every moment. Start with small incremental changes in your diet everyday that meets your nutritional requirement and remind yourself of the reason why you are making the change. 

As a suggestion, start with quitting meat, slowly onto quitting cheese and other dairy products and finally replacing the milk in your cup of coffee with delicious almond /coconut /soy / hemp milk or any other source of nut milk available in your local store. I don’t consider it my right to control what one is eating but I think considering ‘whom’ we are eating as a collective society is a bigger issue in the interest of all beings on planet.

And finally what recipe did you choose to share with my readers today and why? 

This recipe is my husband’s favourite that we always cook this one together – Steamed tofu in ginger curry leaves.
