Today our guest foodie is home chef Rohini Chandra from Mumbai. Rohini had a long and successful career in the Media industry, working in leading TV networks like the Star TV network and the Time Warner group (CNN, HBO Cartoon Network) before quitting corporate life to become a full time mom to her two kids in 2007. Rohini’s passion for cooking is matched equally by her attention to detail. She doesn’t take cooking lightly, even if it’s a light meal. Her favorite is healthy, easy to cook meals for her family, which comes in handy during these days of work and school from home.
Today we are presenting the recipe of one such dish inspired by flavours of Thailand, that we are sure you will find perfect for a quick light and healthy snack.
