  • About

A remarkable physician—vibrant, down-to-earth, and with a passion for good food—Ashlesha Tamboli-Madhok and I (fellow Mumbaiites) bonded over dishes from her childhood (Marathi foods). Her husband, also a physician, and their lovely daughter share her passion for all things Indian. I was intrigued by this curry, which Ashlesha brought to a potluck dinner. It’s a flavorful combination of yellow split peas, yogurt, and spinach.
