People of Georgian: Meet Ishaan Sachdeva
Making popular Indian street food in Canada
My parents used to push me to cook for myself but I either never had time or developed an interest to do so. But now most days I’m watching YouTube videos to learn how to make the popular Indian street food from home – which I’ve been craving for more than two years!
Food like vegetable Manchurian, fried rice, chilli paneer, etc. I’ve also made small vlogs for my family and friends so they can see what I’m cooking and also learn how to make these dishes in their home.
Re-living memories through food
My favourite recipe, which I tried this quarantine, was bread rolls. They have a very sentimental value for me as my grandmother used to make them for me every weekend when I would visit her. While talking with her recently, I showed her that I learned how to make them and that I’m re-living the memories we shared through the food she used to cook for me. This brought a huge smile to her face.
