Turmeric Milk ….
I haven’t posted on the blog since last 3 days and it feels like an eternity to me. I am so used to my ritual of getting up in the morning and posting a recipe first thing, that something was amiss since last few days. Work was quite hectic this month, which of course is a good thing but then I hardly got any time to cook and take pictures for the blog. A lot of Video shoots happened in last few days which kept me very busy. I have tied up with a network and shot recipe videos with them for 2 days. We shot 14 videos and most of them were quite elaborate and detailed recipes, so you can understand how much of an effort must have gone into making those videos. A few days of pre planning, sorting out the recipes, getting the ingredients and other necessities and then actually cooking the dishes while speaking about them, it literally drained me out. Now I am eagerly waiting for the videos to be up on my Youtube channel :).
I am also shooting Buzzfeed kind of Videos for a client and the shoot happens 2 days in a month, so again a lot of my time goes into planning the recipes and arranging for the shoot. In addition to this, we also shot facebook Videos for myself and I was trying out a new Videographer this time, so a lot of brainstorming happened with him, explaining what I exactly wanted. So basically 5 days of extensive video shoots happened this month along with the regular work of recipe development and photo shoots that I am a part of.
I also completed an year working with a food start up in Bangalore as a consultant and Food Photographer for them and this association has given a new perspective to my style of work and definitely made me a better person.
There is another great news that I wanted to share with you all. I am now a part of Saffola as a Food Expert on their website Fitfoodie. This association is almost like a dream come true. Getting associated with one of India’s leading website and that too as an expert is quite an achievement ( If I can say so myself ) and I am very happy and proud about it. But that again means more work, which I am obviously happy to do 🙂
So basically the gist of all this is that I am neck deep in work and I don’t want my blog which is my passion to suffer because of all this. I am trying to give my 100% for it to work by working more hours and somehow trying to manage a balance between work, personal life and my passion. Also I am slowly getting to terms to be not able to post everyday and not feel guilty about it.
Amidst all this, I was feeling very low ( More on the emotional front than Physical ) and wanted something to refresh my soul. This Turmeric Milk or Haldi Wala Doodh is what my mom used to give me whenever I was down with cold, fever or emotions. It has some magical power to it which cures all your miseries, be it physical or emotional. Just wrap a warm cup of it in your palms and inhale the steam wafting from it and then sip it slowly while you read your favourite book and I can assure all your woes will be gone. This milk also help to build up the immune system apart from having anti inflammatory and anti oxidant properties. So it’s a very good choice to include in your kid’s and family’s diet. Here is how to make Turmeric milk or Haldi wala Doodh.
