Tell us about yourself.
I am Suman Doogar from New Delhi. I am a teacher and a travel writer.
When I say FOOD, three things that come to your mind?
Butter chicken, cake and burger.
Have you stayed in any other city?
I have stayed in Aligarh for three years while doing my graduation from Aligarh Muslim University. The experience was decent, mess food was as it is everywhere around the world in hostels but we did manage to modify the mess food in our hostel rooms and delivery from outside was always an option. I ate beef for the first time there, the kebabs were delicious and the hall dinner food was always a treat.
What is FOOD for you?
For me FOOD is LIFE; Essential for survival and important for good mood. My husband teases me that when I am hungry I can be compared to Hitler at that time.
Your two favourite food memories?
One is the food walk I had conducted at Chandni Chowk recently. Another one is at Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh where I had a chicken dish made in a bamboo shoot without any oil and chutney made up of passion fruit leaves and crushed peanuts.
Best Recipe you know.
Chingri Malai curry, a Bengali dish made with prawns and coconut milk.
Who in the food world do you most admire? What if you could meet or say a “Hi” on your social media profile?
Sia from Monsoon Spice. It will be great to get an opportunity to cook with her once.
What is your day like?
Busy, I juggle many roles in a day. Being a teacher, travel blogger, an Instagram influencer and that of a wife takes up all my time.
What do you love most about your job/work?
I love teaching, the rapport with my students means a lot to me. As a writer, I love exploring new places and sharing them with my readers.
If you had just one wish, what would it be?
Go on a food exploration trip around the world to learn new recipes.
Best piece of advice you would give to another foodie.
Eat well but mind your waist too!
