In my Kitchen, October 2012

It seems September did not even start and its already October. The past few weeks have been hectic - more mentally than anything else. With so much happening leading to so much thinking, I guess I did not realise where time went by.
It also made me realise that I haven't blogged much. I have a few unfinished draft posts but they are waiting for the pics!

So let me jump straight into sharing with you what is in my kitchen this month. I had participated in this event hosted by Celia last month and I am so happy to join in again.

In my kitchen...


...Is this beautiful runner which was gifted to me last week by my sister in law P. She bought it for me during her recent visit to New Delhi. I immediately fell in love with it the moment I set my eyes upon it. The fabric is tissue and as you can see, it has hand painted flowers running through the center. This runner goes very well with my curtains and beautifully adorns my dining table.

In my kitchen...


...are a bunch of yellow flowers which brighten up the corner next to the sink.

In my kitchen...


...is a "Baby and Toddler Cookbook" by Tarla Dalal who is a noted Indian cookery author. This book was recommended by my colleague M and I have found it extremely useful in introducing solids to my daughter T. The book covers various recipes (Indian and others) suited for babies and toddlers. 

In my kitchen...


...is a set of 4 glasses which my husband and I had purchased together a few years back. We both fell for the circular pattern on the glasses and the only regret was that there were only 4 pieces left when we bought them.

In my kitchen...


...is a new unopened packet of Papdi - Indian wafers made from refined flour and spices and deep fried. These can be eaten directly as a snack or are served with potatoes, chutney and curd to make Papdi Chaat

In my kitchen...


...is freshly prepared "Golden Froth". This very tasty drink was prepared by my sister in law P today afternoon. Will share the recipe soon :)

So what is happening in your kitchen this month? Hop onto Fig Jam and Lime Cordial to share.

  2. Lizzy is right, the runner is gorgeous, as are your flowers! How nice to have them in the kitchen with you when you're cooking! Cute glasses, and I love all Indian crispy snacks - I'm quite hooked on them! :) Thanks for sharing your kitchen with us...

  4. Oooo, those Papdi look GOOD! I love deep-fried anytime...I have a savoury tooth. Lovely runner...I "think" I may have a similar one somewhere.

  5. I, too, love the runner! It looks so elegant and yet friendly to use. I have some runners that sit and decorate and some that can be used while you are actually using the table- I like the second category the best!
    Thanks for sharing- the flowers are so cheery- and I'm all for any snack that is fried!
