PHOTOESSAY

sunlight in nihar’s kitchen

NIHAR DESAI



Crescendo of the Adrak Chai. This moment excites me equally everytime it happens.
Crescendo of the Adrak Chai. This moment excites me equally everytime it happens.
Moments before this golden paste gets transformed into a vada.

Maybe this is how I will remember my kitchen for all my life.

Mother making batter for Desai Vadas, a very peculiar dish associated with my community from South Gujarat


How long before I can bite into the Sabudana vada?
5 minutes more

Lemongrass and mint leaves, a herb pairing that make your chai go wild.



A rainy afternoon with steamy dosas.

It's my favourite from the lot.
