  • Wash the chicken thoroughly. Add the ginger-garlic paste, dark soy sauce and rum into to and let it sit for 30-45 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a pan and add the star anise. Wait till it releases its aroma.

  • In the meantime, add the brown sugar and lemon to the chicken marinade and leave it for another 10 minutes.

I am Vismaya, a freelancer + entrepreneur, full-time pet mom, Bollywood buff, coffee connoisseur, and a hopeless foodie. My biggest discovery during the lockdown in 2020 was that I could cook! I experimented the hell out of all that I could find in my small little pantry. The realisation of my love for the process eventually led to me say goodbye to my amazing cook!

During the free time I can steal away from my demanding job where I am the Accountant, Business Development Manager, Planner, Strategist, and Intern, I tend to my small garden, read books ranging from feminist literature to chick-lit to biographies, sit in my balcony and stare at the changing sky. I am currently reading two amazing books - The Little Book of Lykke and A Man Called Ove. I am also re-watching a powerfully written series - The Bold Type on Netflix - and refreshing my memory before the new season comes out (which, needless to say, I am very excited about!)

My dream is to someday have a library cafe that will bring together my many interests. This place will have great coffee, good food, and stimulating conversations over books and views!
