Happy First Birthday Coriander Kitchen
May 3, 2012 § 5 Comments
To celebrate Coriander Kitchen’s one year birthday, I invited friends over for a Bollywood themed party. I cooked up some of my favourite recipes from my blog and we all got dressed up in saris for the special occasion. I wore a vintage embroidered light blue chiffon sari that was originally my grandmother’s.
The music from Slumdog Millionaire and Monsoon Wedding played in the background as we chatted about Bollywood movies and Shiamak’s Bollywood dance classes that I took last year. Most of my friends have travelled to India and we reminisced on our travels and the various yoga and meditation retreats that we have taken there.
My friend is beautifully draped in this green and gold silk sari that I brought back for her from Kanyakumari, the town on the very southern tip of India. Kanyakumari is a popular tourist destination because it’s where the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean meet, making the sunset and the moon-rise visible at the same time.
We ended the evening with a soothing cup of freshly made homemade chai that has been my personal recipe for years. I hope that everyone has enjoyed reading Coriander Kitchen and experimenting with my healthy vegetarian recipes. Here’s to the next year!
