5 years ago, a girl from Mumbai, India found my blog. After being a silent reader for awhile, she started to put comments anonymously. Until a couple years later, she decided to write me an email and since then, the friendship between her and me began. Her name is Laveena and her passion of fashion can be found in her blog called Fashion Inquisitive.
A week ago, Laveena told me that she's coming to Jakarta for her vacation. I'm so happy that we're finally meeting in person, after so many years we have been keeping in touch by emails, text messages and phone calls. So, yesterday I was invited to her relative's place where she is staying. I had a chance to try Indian vegetarian dishes cooked by her auntie and also the Indian sweets and snack that she brought from India.
Aloo Tikkis (Potato Fritters with coriander)
Sindhi Curry with Lauki squash
(tomatoes, methi seeds, cumin seeds, chili, salt, etc,)
Bhindi Fry (Fried Okra)
It's Indian sweets called Singar Ka Mithai
(flour, milk, sugar, pistachio, ghee, etc.)
Laveena bought it at "Tharu's Mukhi Bhandar" - the best place for sweets among the Sindhis in Mumbai.
Ginger Chai (tea, ginger, milk)
