Best Monsoon Recipes

Those dark clouds in the sky, and then, drop by drop comes down the rain. It is Monsoon. Monsoon is a season when the mornings become cozy and the evenings get dark. Roads are drenched, colorful umbrellas are seen everywhere, two-wheelers take a shed under the tree or in a shop, trees look greener and everything is so beautiful. This is MONSOON!

Kids waiting for the moment when they can leave their Mom’s finger and splash in the rainwater, the house-helps rushing to the terrace to remove the washed and dried clothes,  Mom or Dad or both coming back home from work with soaked shoes and hair, someone struggling with the lost cable connection, someone sitting beside the window and waiting for the raindrops to touch him/her, and some chai and pakoras in the kitchen… this is MONSOON!

Every occasion, every season has its food, its recipes. As the rains drop, also drop the temperatures, which call for some chai and snacks along with it; hot and savory snacks. Here we have a collection of recipes which you will love to make this monsoon. You guessed it right. It has a variety of pakoras and chai, but the variety comes with a variation. There are a number of ways to flavor your chai. Collection of chai recipes can be checked to see how? Definitely adrak wali chai tops the list during Monsoon.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
