Summer recipe

Summer – when a home stove turns into its furnace, and when you don’t need to add salt to your food, if old Hindi movies are something to do (think anyone’s forehead sweats). As the air around us dries up, standing in front of the stove is rarely the norm in the state. We visit some of the best chefs and restaurants in the country for our assistance as well as seasonal food. In the first of the summer-long series, we provide you with something for these salad days.
