Shira Ezra Kisus, a physical education teacher, loved the Indian food she grew up eating. She never thought much about cooking until her grandmother Rachama died. In an effort to keep the memory of her loving grandmother alive, Ezra Kisus and her mother spent an enormous amount of time together in the kitchen trying to replicate all her grandmother’s tasty recipes.

Ezra Kisus’s family is originally from Mumbai and her grandmother was intent on continuing to prepare traditional Indian food in the new country. She even planted the necessary herbs and trees in their garden (mango and papaya trees, and curry leaf plants) so she would have the ingredients she needed at her fingertips.
