Author Notes

Nimbu pani (pictured on the tray in the photo above) means lemon/lime water. Essentially Indian lemonade, nimbu pani is sold on the streets of Indian cities from hand-carts to counter the sweltering heat. Nimbu pani is an ideal, crowd-pleasing, easy-to-scale-up holiday drink. —Annada Rathi

To some people's frustration, I like to talk about food before cooking, while cooking, while eating and of course after eating.
