about this blog
Why chai at six? Because growing up, my family and I would have chai every evening. Those moments of my youth are among my most favorite memories.

Who am I? A twentysomething working fulltime in Knoxville, Tenn.

    chai at six
    I've been spoiled this past month as I've gotten to see family on two separate occasions. I was down in Florida for Nisha's baby shower and got to have some pretty neat conversations with my nephew Kush, pictured below. He's four years old and at a perfect age where he's learning everything and having conversations with me and such!

    Then my dad, Amit and Deepa-bhabhi came up to visit me about two weeks ago. I prepared a picnic with fried catfish, mango and corn salsa and fresh cut fruit in the park near where I live. I played a bit of badminton with my dad, which brought back memories. We did some socializing with the Hiras and then met Kent and his folks for supper. That was such a treat. That's me and my dad below.



    And while I was trying for frequent posts earlier, they are now few and far between. Blame a broken laptop. One day I'll actually be hip with the Internets.

    Mark Bittman of the New York Times has a fabulous list of simple meals that take 10 minutes or less to prepare. Among the list:

  • Open a can of white beans and combine with olive oil, salt, small or chopped shrimp, minced garlic and thyme leaves in a pan. Cook, stirring, until the shrimp are done; garnish with more olive oil.


  • Put three pounds of washed mussels in a pot with half a cup of white wine, garlic cloves, basil leaves and chopped tomatoes. Steam until mussels open. Serve with bread.


  • Put a few slices of chopped prosciutto in a skillet with olive oil, a couple of cloves of crushed garlic and a bit of butter; a minute later, toss in about half a cup bread crumbs and red chili flakes to taste. Serve over pasta with chopped parsley.


  • Sounds delicious and he makes everything so simple and easy. Check out the full list.
