Favourite dish- Pad Krapao Gai, Thailand

 “To pick a favourite dish from all over the world is incredibly hard. Through all my travels I've had the pleasure of experimenting and eating some amazing dishes. I have my list of dishes that are my top 10 but if I really have to pick one I'd have to go with Pad Krapao Gai which is a Thai dish that translates to Basil Chicken and Rice. I find that I love it so much; I end up eating many plates of this whenever I visit Thailand. Often if I have access to Thai food elsewhere I try to look for this and it's one dish from my travels that I recreate at home quite often. It's not a difficult recipe but of course, the taste will always be different in Thailand. So my favourite dish from all my travels, the undisputed champion is Pad Krapao Gai!”

Favourite dish- Falafel from the Middle East

“Food has the power to evoke memory, bring people together and to transport us to other places without travelling! Food has that magical power to bridge gaps, blur the borders that divide the countries and its people and above all, it brings joy. And ultimately, food often unites what geopolitics seeks to divide. Like this Falafel, small bite-sized fried balls made of chickpeas, herbs and spices, ubiquitous throughout the Middle East, is the national dish of Israel and is believed to have originated in Egypt. After Indian chaats, Falafel is my most favourite street foods for its simple, rustic and earthy flavours. It is quite easy to make them at home as most ingredients can easily be found in any well-stocked Indian pantry. All you need to make falafel is some chickpeas or Kabuli channa, onions, few cloves of garlic, a handful of fresh herbs, and few spices! Sounds simple? Well, it is simple! :)

Traditionally, Falafel is served as one of many mezze, an array appetizers or snacks from the Middle East and Mediterranean, quite like the Spanish tapas. But today the ‘sandwich’ version has become more popular where it is served in pita pocket along with hummus, salad and drizzled with tahini, yogurt or assorted sauces. While I love to sink my teeth into generously stuffed Falafel-Pita Sandwich with assorted vegetables and pickled chillies, my husband prefers it in a neatly arranged Buddha Bowls with toasted pita chips on the side. And as for my little boy, he is a happy camper to much it on its own doused in hummus and tahini along with lots of carrots and cucumbers cut into fingers to dip in a bowl of hummus. Whatever way you want to serve it or eat it, you can’t help but fall in love with this little deep fried fritters.“

Favourite dish- Cacio e Pepe, Italy

“If there's one dish that exemplifies the enormity of pan-sauce precision, it's Cacio e Pepe which literally means cheese and pepper. I was in Italy for a week-long stay in the month of June and discovered this dish for the very first time in Rome. It's native to Rome, which means you won't spot this dish in abundance in any other part of Italy. The simplistic recipe calls for only a few ingredients and involves the use of Pecorino cheese and freshly ground black pepper. If you're lucky, you'll get what you're after: a creamy, emulsified sauce that coats each strand of spaghetti with flavour.”

Favourite Dish- Puchka, Kolkata

“The dish I look forward to the most on my travels is the phuchka. It is the version on pani puri or golgappa that you get in Kolkata. The taste is unique and I rarely get that in Mumbai where I love. Coming across a phuchka means I am home. When in Kolkata I just stop at any phuchka guy I spot and have phuchkas like I did in my trip to the city a few days back. It consists of a panipuri like a shell made with maida and sooji. They add chilli and masala spiked mashed potatoes inside with coriander leaves and legumes at times and then add a tangy and spicy tamarind infused water to it. You have to pop in the phuchka into your mouth at one go.”

Favourite Food- Boundin

“As you stroll on the waterfront street in San Francisco, near Pier 43, you can’t help get astounded by the sight of a massive bakery glass window, where in front of your eyes you see bakers busy kneading dough, shaping them, putting them on baking trays and the maze of machinery baking and turning them into wonderful breads. Along with the hundreds of people you now only stare at this wonderful bakery but also get lost in the amazing smell of the freshly baked breads. You look up and see the large and imposing signage that says “BOUDIN”. Well, it was love at first sight for me. Once you enter you understand the concept of sourdough baking and how you can actually end up eating not just tasty but really healthy breads. Well, I tried their signature “Soup in a bread bowl”, soup served inside a scooped out sourdough bread. This is a must try item in Boudins. The vegetarian version is served with tomato soup. I tried their Gripped cheese sandwich on sliced sourdough bread. Heavenly! I tried their Tomato, Basil and Garlic Sourdough Pizza. This was the first time ever that I managed to eat more pizza than my husband. When leaving picked up some Jalapeno Cheese bread to try out later and it was so good that we came back next day and tried it again. Choice of Juices, Wines and Beers to accompany the food, Boudin is simply one of the best places ever to go to enjoy your lunch or dinner. Well, the Bay View and cool ocean air are complementary!”

Favourite Dish- Motichoor Ladoo, India

"Meet: The King of Indian Desserts... Motichoor Laddoo!

I've been a fat kid most of my life, and as a kid, these would be my ultimate favourite.. Still are.. So much that I was actually called Laddoo, a pet name that just grew without any limit after that k3g movie.”

I see a vast majority of my generation always more inclined towards western desserts with a myth in their minds that Indian Desserts are too sweet & extra high on calories when in fact it is the opposite.. While some of them are too sweet.. Our beloved Motichoor dodges those misconceptions like a boss.. 

Made of Chickpea Flour Batter (besan) & Loads of Shudh Desi Ghee this one dessert has literally no haters in the entire world... LITERALLY!!”

Favourite Dish- Cesnakova Polievka, Slovenia

“I'm a vegetarian and with my blog, I want to showcase local vegetarian food around the world. It's hard to pick one dish but I'd pick Slovakian food. 

Cesnakova Polievka a creamy garlic soup served in a bread bowl. You can scrape the soft bread inside or tear off pieces of the hard crust to accompany the soup. It’s such a simple, wholesome dish, I’ve often added garlic to soups but never had one entirely based on it. *warning* Avoid when on a date. 

Bryndzove Halusky is actually the national dish. Similar to Gnocchi with a local sheep cheese sauce from the area. Again a simple but hearty dish. 

Some local soda - Kofola to wash it down with. Stronger on the caffeine it had a nice bite vs Coke/ Pepsi.”
