Planted a love for gardening in the hearts of my children and this is my harvest-their help in digging, watering and this big bowl of Ceylon https://t.co/fpPlluwNXs grows like a weed and propagates easily. Not growing actual weed yet unfortunately:) pic.twitter.com/RrQx0d7gwf— Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) March 26, 2020

I love to cook! I love cooking for my family and friends but with my busy schedule, I hardly get time to pursue this passion of mine. But with this self isolation upon us, I thought of utilising this time in a constructive and healthy way by cooking some sumptuous and delicious 'Malabari veg stew for the soul'. I have got this recipe from mom @joycearora and a bit from my friend Maunika @cookinacurry who's a lovely cook. Everyone at home simply loves this stew and we are going to have it with some white rice and some delicious gluten-free, vegan chickpea bread that my friend Raveena @iamayogisattva made for me. M in for a lovely treat, I hope you too utilise this time to do something positive and healthy. Stay calm and stay safe! #stayhome#quarantine #covid_19
