Any colour you like

7 Feb

There’s nothing like a big splash of colour to instantly create a sense of warmth and happiness. Whether in your home, on the page in your sketchbook, somewhere within your attire for the day, or in your plate.


And why do I need all that colour? Well, because I don’t want to be left out.

It was bad enough that we had a non-winter-winter. Which is to say we had chilly evenings and early mornings, which made us want to sleep longer and miss important things like early morning alarms and late night TV watching spells. And in between we’d have blindingly hot days. What kind of schizoid weather Gods have they sent us to Goa this year?

While the rest of food-blogdom is livening up winter by dishing out vibrantly coloured soups and bright curries and spicy things in shades of orange, red, deep brown and the like, and twitter tells me how winter is showing absolutely no signs of going away, I decided that we might not have the weather in these parts, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have to miss out on the colour, right?


So if you’re in the throes of winter and need livening up, you could try:

Red and green

A bright green curry

This happy yellow soup

Which would both go perfectly well a couple of slices of warm bread.

And if you’re having a weird non-winter and could do with some happy cool noms, you could try:


This OMG berry-flavours-in-your-face strawberry sorbet.

Or this really simple salad with cherry tomatoes and spring onions.

    These are the best kind of posts, ones with faatas. :) make me happy.
    so true how one chooses their food sometimes depending on the colours you see, this season the markets have lost the plot! :D

    Couldn’t agree more with you on the bursts of colour adding life to your days. :)

    We have had a non-existent winter this year, too. Haven’t been tempted to make the soups that I make every winter. :(
