9 Breakfast Places in Delhi-NCR That Open at 9 AM

Now we have all heard nutritionists and health experts stressing on how breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and how one should not skip if come what may.

Friends Union Joshi Club: Home-Style Gujarati Thali at its Best

  It’s not easy trying to find Friends Union Joshi Club – it’s tucked away on the first floor of a nondescript building in Narottam Wadi, situated in one of Kalbadevi’s busy warren of streets.

Kerala’s Favourite Breakfast: How to Make Soft Puttu at Home

One of Kochi’s most successful restaurant launches over the last couple of years was Dhe Puttu. It helped that one of the restaurant’s promoters is Dileep, a successful Malayalam actor. However, this is not a restaurant that depends solely on star power but is driven by an innovative idea. All this restaurant does is serve Puttu, Kerala’s emblematic breakfast favourite. Dhe Puttu has over 20 different versions of Puttu. A year ago, I learnt to make Puttu at the Anantara Peace Haven resort in Tangalle, Sri Lanka’s southern tip. They…
