An Indian-ish family story with Priya and Ritu Krishna

May 3, 2019

Priya Krishna is a young star of a food writer. Her mother Ritu Krishna runs software development teams, is a terrific home cook and a self-taught sommelier. Together they wrote the book Indian(-ish): Recipes and Antics from a Modern American Family to document Ritu's recipes and tell the story of their family. Francis Lam sat down with the mother and daughter at Priya's apartment in New York City to talk about cooking and writing together. They also shared their recipe from the book for Dahi Toast (Spiced Yogurt Sandwiches). As part of their day spent together, Francis also joined the Krishnas in the kitchen as they made Dahi Toast. Listen to that kitchen cooking segment here.
