I sometimes feel, it is imperative to feel confident from within so that others have confidence in you – making way for a desired getaway. An extended weekend came through amidst a very hectic work schedule; it was literally like a refreshing breath of silver linings. Also, this extended weekend had Holi nestled in it and I wanted to make the most of it. I stumbled upon a trip to Kasol with a bunch of unknown travelers. Something felt damn right about this whole ‘solo’ group trip. I wanted to go, and after lots of fights with my folks and hours of convincing, I finally made it happen.
With the onset of winter, comfort food comes to mind; and what’s better than a bowl full of creamy pumpkin soup with a dollop of butter on top. I also love dunking crispy garlic bread in my soulful bowl. This soup is packed with goodness of health and is very easy to make. It takes about 20 minutes to cook.
Being conscious about energies of certain foods for autumn months and integrating those in your daily diet can help you balance your body’s energy.
Décor: Desi Roots, a brand new café nestled in Saket, New Delhi is one of the very few restaurants that brought back fond memories of childhood in mind, as I walked in for lunch on a balmy Sunday afternoon. The first instinct was a happy feeling—colours like warm orange, dull beige, bright turquoise, royal violet and more popped out from different corners only to make you feel like you have stepped into a cheerful space. This restaurant has taken ‘quirky’ to a whole new level; the décor proudly flaunts pieces like—a sewing machine turned into a table, almost-vintage Bajaj scooter headlights acting as lamps and more.
