Oh yes, I love my books and I lead a thousand lives as I read them. But I am a wanderer, a traveller who loves living and creating her own tales. I take roads less travel, see places as much as I can. For empty roads, paths less taken, places and people have many stories to tell too. #traveller_stories #traveller #storyteller #myjourney #worldthroughmyeyes #travellogs #travelandfoodblogger #exploringmumbai #mumbaikar #mumbaistories #myroads #travelstories #traveltales #blogger #thecrazygemini #nutritionistlife #nutritionistaditiprabhu
How’s this for a colourful lunch? . A Punjab meets Gujarat vegetarian meal from Lashkara and Regal Plus in Bandra for the largely vegetarian Parsi side of the family. Vegetarian not from birth, but by choice for various personal reasons over the years and to varying degrees of rigidity. . Any Bengali still reading this post, despite coming across the word ‘vegetarian’, would recognise the East Bengal FC colours formed by the mats. . The dahi vada and kadi were nice in this weather. I am not a khandvi fan and skipped them but I am told that they were nice. . The alu dum was a tad salty, the lemon rice could have been cooked a bit more and the aamras could have been a bit less sweet but I think the afternoon went off well. . #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #yum #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #finelychopped #pulao #bengaliinmumbai #mumbaifinelychopped #kadipakoda #dahivada #aamras #lunch #khandvi #gujaratifood #shotoniphone7plus #vegetarian #indianfood #punjabifood
Sunday feast at @narathaiindia , one of our favourite Thai restaurants in the city. Particular highlights of today’s meal included this rich red Thai curry and the refreshingly light and flavourful steamed John Dory. Check out our story for more on today’s divine meal, including picks from the summer special mango menu! #SundayFunday #Naptime

My Bengali brethren will march to the Brigade Parade Grounds in favour of himshagor I know, while those north of the wall will extoll the virtues of langda, and both will say that the Alphonso is overrated. Yet, truth be told, I love the Alphonso mango. Maybe I’ve lived in Mumbai for too long. If you don’t agree with my sentiments and want to change my mind, please get me your favourite mangoes to taste. I am not promising that I will change my mind but hey what’s a few mangoes between friends? PS Just joking about bringing me mangoes, so don’t get in to a ‘these greedy food bloggers’ mode! #mango #hapoos #alphonsomango #mangolover #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #yum #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #finelychopped #bengaliinmumbai #mumbaifinelychopped #finelychoppedblog #fruits #shotoniphone7plus #bowlsoffinelychopped
It was a wonderful experience to work on the denim pieces, I felt so special wearing them. I gave up wearing denims long time back as I felt I don’t have the body or shape to wear them. I am glad that I got the chance to feel the denims again brings back the memories of my teenage and It felt so special wearing these with my artwork on them 🌺❤️ My collab with @levis_in to celebrate the 145th birthday of the blue jean.

Featuring in today’s evening snack were sliced cucumbers and a home-made basil, toasted walnuts, garlic and extra virgin olive oil pesto, sandwiched together in the incredibly soft sourdough wholewheat pav from The Baker’s Dozen at Bandra. I’ve been happily ordering and eating my way through their portfolio as I look for options to refined flour breads and everything I’ve tried recently has been brilliant. I would have added ‘not a paid post,’ but I’d rather do it the old fashioned way and mention a brand collaboration/ sponsorship when it occurs than the other way round. Since the amount was small, the Swiggy Delivery charge was almost the same as the bread but I’d look at it as the price of convenience. #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #yum #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #finelychopped #thebakersdozen #finelychoppedkitchen #finelychoppedrecipes #littlejackhornermeals #bandra #mumbaifinelychopped #finelychoppedblog #bakery #wholewheat #pav #sourdough #shotoniphone7plus #vegetarian #pesto #homecooking #platesoffinelychopped #breads
•Read caption• //कहानियां// • आज हवाओं ने रुख़ बदल लिया है अपना, आज मेरे शहर में तुम जो आ रही हो बरसों बाद, तुम्हारे इंतज़ार में आंधियां चलने लगीं हैं, बिल्कुल कहानियों की तरह। ये लम्हा काफ़ी हसीं होने वाला है, ठीक बारिश के पहले जैसा। ठंडी हवाएं, हल्की फुल्की फुहार और उन सबमें तुम्हारा इन्तज़ार। बिलकुल कहानियों की तरह। बहुत खूबसूरत समा बंधने वाला है आज, बेसब्र होकर भी इतनी सब्र रख कर तुम्हारी राह तकना, भला आसां है क्या? आने से पहले दोबारा वापस जाने की बात कहना, भला आसां है क्या? बिल्कुल कहानियों की तरह। पहाड़ों से आगे, वादियों से पहले मिलने की जगह अच्छी है वैसे। और उन सब के बीच जब तुम धुंध को खुद में समेटे हुए आओगी परियों की तरह, तो ये दिल, पुराने दिनों की तरह ज़ोरों से धड़कने लगेगा, देखना तुम। बिल्कुल कहानियों की तरह। काश! ये पल थम जाए। और मैं तुम्हें देखता रहूं। बस देखता ही रहूं, जिस तरह वो तारा चांद की तरफ़ देखा करता है, बिल्कुल दीवानों की तरह। बिल्कुल कहानियों की तरह। एक गुलाब लाया हूं तुम्हारे लिए, जो इस लम्हे का गवाह बन सके, क़ैद कर सके उन पलों को, अपनी पंखुड़ियों में। और सालों बाद वो मेरी डायरी का हिस्सा बन जाए। बिल्कुल कहानियों की तरह। और मुद्दतों बाद भी तुम्हारा किरदार ज़िंदा रहे, मेरी ग़ज़लों में, मेरी कहानियों में। बिल्कुल कहानियों की तरह। बिल्कुल कहानियों की तरह।। ~मयंक . . . .

When in doubt, order them all - and when at @kokomumbai , definitely order the hazelnut and chocolate nutty finger
What is love? Love is freedom. Leave me stranded and see me running to you with all the love I collect from these places.
"Check" your wardrobe. Do you have this one yet? #Checkered
Love in summer comes in the form of mangos. While on my short trip to Mumbai, few days back, my choti sister arranged this box to take away. She and my bro in law, took the trouble to order the box, pick it up and pack them carefully. While there, I had a great time gorging on yummy food at mom's and her place and gorging on mangoes with my little nephew. Back home as hubby cuts the mango, I miss them all and as soon as I take the first bite, my phone rings and it is her. Call it a coincidence or a connection😊 The bond between sisters is so special. Life gave us each other and there is not a moment of loneliness. #sistersbeforemisters #sisterlove #mango #mumbaistories #nephewlove #familytalks #familyiseverything #somethingsneverchange #familyandfood

These chicken Thai sticky basil meatballs (based on a recipe by @my_foodstory ) were so quick and easy to make - clocking in at about 40 minutes (including prep), they’re perfect for a weeknight dinner. They’re also spicy, salty, slightly sweet and VERY delicious... even if we do say ourselves! #AboutLastNight
‘Every day, i drive an architect lady to work. She gives me daily English lessons in the cab.’ We spoke in Hindi. My limited proficiency and his kindness in complimenting it. Then we spoke in English as practice and it was both beautiful and humbling. My mother tongue is not superior. Most of the world does not speak it. Yet here we were talking the same ‘language’ - connection #mumbai #mumbaistories #india
#HomeMade Thai feast today, featuring this classic #padthai , courtesy @hongthaimee ’s fabulous recipe on @buzzfeedtasty - the recipe video was super helpful, and we had a great evening in the kitchen!
The phul-wala at the corner of our lane gave me an orchid on the house when I bought flowers for the house. Talking in Bengali helps I guess so here’s raising a cheer for federalism! The photo frame above my desk contains a letter that I was most fortunate to receive from Dr Daisaku Ikeda, hon president of the Soka Gakkai International, when I sent him a copy of my book when it was published. Words which guide me everyday. #foodblogger #foodwriter #amwriting #bandra #mumbaistories #bengaliinmumbai #soka #daisakuikeda #TheTravellingBelly
Went to the fridge to take out an apple to have with muesli for breakfast when the heavenly aromas of bacon being fried wafted in from the kitchen of our neighbours, a Goan couple in their 80s. That made so happy! Good morning Bandra. PS I added some plain dahi, a teaspoon of honey and one small ‘velchi’ banana too. #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #muesli #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #finelychopped #finelychoppedbreakfasts #finelychoppedkitchen #littlejackhornermeals #mumbaifinelychopped #finelychoppedblog #breakfast #bacon #shotoniphone7plus #vegetarian #bandra #homecooking #platesoffinelychopped

•Read caption• //फ़रमान ए मोहब्बत// • आज मेरी मोहब्बत का फरमान अाया है। बंद लिफाफे के साथ आज एक गुलदस्ता अाया है। मेरे इश्क़ को नाम देने आज उसने अपने दरवाज़े पे बुलाया है। सोचा कभी बैठकर, आख़िर कैसे उसमें इतना बदलाव आया है। जो उसने आज मुझे खामखां अपने दरवाज़े पे बुलाया है। शायद मान गई हो? क्या पता आज वो राज़ी हो जाए? क्या पता आज हम "दो" हो जाए? क्या पता आज उसके इरादे बदल जाए? आज यूंही उन पुरानी खतों को पढ़ने को जी चाहा, जाने से पहले फ़िर उन इकरार और इसरार के किस्सों को दोहराने को जी चाहा। क्या पता आज उसके इरादे बदल जाए? चेहरे पे एक मुस्कान लेकर, अरसे पहले उसके दिए वो लिबास पहनकर। चला जो उसके घर की ओर। नावाकिफ से मेरे कदम डगमगाने लगे धीरे धीरे, रंजिश थी कैसी, दिल को अकेला छोड़ दिया जिस्म ने बीच मंझधार में। अब जो सहारा था दिल का ही, दिल ने दिल के दरवाज़े पर दस्तक दे दी थी। आख़िर उसने भी तो मेरे खतों पर दस्तख़त कर दी थी। कैसे ना आता मैं, यूं मुड़कर कैसे चला जाता मैं? घर तो यही है, ठिकाना मेरा यही है। क्या पता आज उसके इरादे बदल जाए? क्या पता वो फ़कीर नामुराद होके कब उसकी नमाजों में शामिल हो जाए? क्या पता ये कहानी कब किस घड़ी शुरू हो जाए? ख़ैर, आज मेरी मोहब्बत का फरमान अाया है। बंद लिफाफे के साथ आज एक गुलदस्ता अाया है। ~मयंक . . .

Flavours of the east brought to you on a dining table in the west. Bhaat, dal, begun bhaaja, soaked with memories of Calcutta and livened up with the juice of the kazi nemu from the Manas National Park in Mumbai. Thinly slicing the brinjals means less oil used while frying. The addition of cucumber and beet root was meant to add bulk to the meal so that I’d take less rice and yet not feel too hungry. Baby steps but I am sure they count. Could have had some dal on the side as a soup but was in a hurry and forgot. #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #yum #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #finelychopped #finelychoppedkitchen #littlejackhornermeals #bengaliinmumbai #mumbaifinelychopped #finelychoppedblog #lunch #shotoniphone7plus #vegetarian #indianfood #bengalifood #homecooking #platesoffinelychopped
I’d never been to Gujarat before and that was going to change today. A couple of friends and I were scheduled to go on a day long road trip to Surat and back with stops at Valdard, Udwada and a mango farm owned by the one in the group who had come up in the plan. A circuit I’d wanted to do for a while. I was super excited. Last evening I went for a short walk. Came back and rustled up a quick dinner. Charged my power bank. Found my shades. Packed my satchel after dinner and that’s when a freak back pain hit me. The pain kept me up all night till I finally took a painkiller, well after the time at which my alarm to wake up was set and messaged my friends expressing my regrets. While wincing with pain at night I had promised myself a ham and cheese ‘croque monsieur’ croissant from La Folie if I slept. I placed an order when I eventually woke up at noon. Had forgotten that Swiggy deliveries at lunch time take a lot more to arrive than in the morning but La Folie’s food was on point as always and the cappuccino hot too when the food finally arrived and then, to use Bond lingo, one lived to eat another day. Yes, Little Jack Horner can wait for now. I did finish the salad though. Living the trip vicariously for now through the pics in the WhatsApp group. #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #yum #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #finelychopped #finelychoppedbreakfasts #mumbaifinelychopped #finelychoppedblog #breakfast #shotoniphone7plus #platesoffinelychopped #cafe #bandra #croissant #cappucino #firstcappuccinooftheday #foodislove #everybitematters
Some days both of us find ourselves so anxious to try all the newest, prettiest, most insta-worthy food that we forget to consider age-old alternatives - like a lusciously cold and creamy malai kulfi on a hot summer’s day. Then we remember again. #BeatTheHeat #MidweekMotivation
As you might have noticed from my feed recently, I’ve been primarily eating home cooked meals and have also tried to stay away from refined flour and potatoes for a while based on my doctor’s advice. Then I came across a cuddly little vada pav yesterday. @ikrishnamishra was around to capture that Casablanca moment. #foodblogger #foodie #foodwriter #yum #food #foodphotos #mumbaistories #mumbaifinelychopped #finelychoppedblog #snack #streetfood #shotoniphone7plus #vegetarian #indianfood #vadapav #everybitematters
#MondayMotivation . One of our favourite treats in #mangoseason is a chilled mango #milkshake - rich @sarda_farms milk, blended with fresh mango chunks and two cubes of ice in our @thenutribullet. No frills needed! #BeatTheHeat

•Read caption• गर निकलोगे तुम चिराग़ लेकर मोहब्बत की तलाश में कहीं किसी बाज़ार में, तो मोहब्बत नहीं, गम औ रुखसत ही महसूस करोगे बस। बैठ जाना घर के किसी कोने में खिड़कियों के किनारे, मोहब्बत ख़ुद तुम्हारी मुन्तजिर बनकर तुम्हारी तलाश में तुम्हें ढूंढती चली आएगी। ~मयंक . . . .
