She says; These songs are on my playlist when it’s late at night, after dinner. I like to make the dough for the paratha or chapati the night before it is cooked and served. It’s so much easier to roll if the dough has rested for a bit. So this is the music I play when I knead the dough. Often, I wash and soak red kidney beans, black chickpeas, or lentils before sleeping. I do not wash up. I soak the pots in hot water and detergent. I guess the playlist reflects my roots: I am a Londoner with a distinct Indian accent. I am from both the East and the West, and the playlist reflects that.
