Fenugreek Tangerine Tea Cake

Fenugreek Tangerine Tea Cake

Recently, I reread The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, a book that applies the philosophy of phenomenology to spaces and things. Flowery prose, whimsical and speculative, the author plays with how memories are shaped within the home. A mediation of poetry, it forces reflection and realization about innate experiences. The reread conjured a poetic experience with my mom’s rose teapot and orange cake.

Spinach and Cornmeal Scones with Homemade Butter

Spinach and Cornmeal Scones with Homemade Butter

Saag, a traditional north Indian dish of long-cooked spinach and spices, Makki Di Roti and Makhan gets reimagined into scones.

Nothing is more Punjabi than Sarson da Saag and Makki di roti with a dollop of makhan, especially during Vaisakhi. This variation takes a minute to wrap your head around. Be warned, you’ll get a few jaw drops when saag is mentioned as an ingredient. Either that, or pangs of nostalgia will hit the scone eater.
