Indian street food pop-up dinner! + update

Hi! I thought I would give a little update about what I've been up to. 

I work with developing plant proteins with various companies. It's something I'm really passionate about since I've been vegetarian for 23 years and have a food science degree.

This summer, I wasn't able to travel to America or India to see my family (because of covid19), and was missing my home food so much so I became inspired to create a fun pop-up dinner. It was inspired by the streets of Bombay, where I grew up. There is just so much food that is waiting to be discovered and I wanted to share that with Stockholm, especially since most of the food served at "Indian" restaurants aren't really representative of the food I grew up with. 

It was a really successful vegetarian dinner and everyone left feeling inspired and like they learnt a little about the street food from Bombay and new ways of eating pulses. None of my guests had ever eaten the food I served, which made it a little extra special for them. I feel inspired to organize more events, and am now looking for a suitable location. Know of anything? Let me know! 

Next time I'd love to organize one with Sindhi food since my family is originally from Karachi, Pakistan.
