Basil seeds in limeade is a special drink that has become street favorite these days in Kerala. Now whats the big deal about limeade .. everyone knows to make it right! Well the lime/Indian lemon oil from the peel that mingles with the drink,simple syrup not plain sugar and the bartender style shaking alone gives it much desired taste. Basil seeds have a hint of basil taste but the main purpose of adding it is to cool the body. If you are new to basil seeds then it is just like chia seeds, it blooms when soaked.

In most Kerala homes arrowroot milk or koova kachiyathu is a regular thing. It would be in a smoothie consistency. Anytime someone had a tummy upset, or was sick etc arrowroot cooked with just milk minus any richness was served.

Salmon and Potato Salad served with New England special hotdog buns, some juicy colorful heirloom tomatoes and french fries.
East Coast summers are really short but scorching hot I am not complaining cos we just finished our quota of long freezing winter... so we are on a salad and seafood diet for the time being.

Beetroot and oats pairs quite well and gives such a lovely taste I am sure you won't miss meat at all when you have the burger. I have gone with the Mexican flavors here with taco seasoning, coriander tomato salsa and buttery avocado so u wont look around for mustard or ketchup.
Plant based burgers need not be boring at all !

A tender moist cake bursting with mango flavor had been in my mind since long.This is perhaps perfect season and reason to make an old fashioned cake.
