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!

***Attention Foodies of Delhi*** Do you like good food? Good ambience? Minimalist decor? Are you environmentally conscious? Are you a coffee connoisseur? If your answer is in affirmative then you HAVE to check out '2 Tree Coffee Cafe' at PVR Saket. . . This newly opened cafe in Saket is a much needed space for people like me, who loves food, positive vibes, conversation and coffee. . . On the table: 1. Ms.Daisy Burger 2. Southern Belle Sandwich 3. Cafe Bombon (my new favourite) 4. Mazagran black coffee 5. California wrap with garlic fries 6. Asparagus rolls (veggies and cheese stuffing) 7. Dips – Basil pesto, Haideri, chilli garlic aioli, boom sauce, apple butter and garlic aioli. . . The USP of 2 Tree Coffee is that they serve Conscious Coffee that believes in supporting communities and not commodities. The decor is soothing – full of positivity and I loved the choice of music (Buddhist chants). The owner, Arav knows his coffee well. If you are confused and can't decide what to order, then just ask him. He will suggest you the best according to your taste and preference. . . I am definitely going back. Doulos Jose how about Sunday brunch?

Chalti ka Naam gaadi 🚂 One of the most beautiful places I have ever been to is #Haflong in #Assam. . . From the magnificent train journey to the beautiful station surrounded by lush green mountains, to the hotel where we stayed. From the bumpy yet adventurous ride to the villages hidden in the heart of Assam to meeting warm and genuine people. From your knowledgeable guide @bankim_haflong to the monsoon rains. I loved everything about Haflong. . . If you are planning to go to Assam then make sure Haflong is on our list. I along with @nookandcorners were hosted by @greenerpastures on this unforgettable journey to the Indian hinderland. . . #AssamTourism #NorthEastIndia #Trains #Monsoons #India #HatkeIndia
