Chef Rahul Akerkar opened his restaurant Qualia exactly a year ago in April 2019. The venture has been keeping him on his toes ever since. Now, in the lockdown, while spending more time at home, he has been editing his photographs, writing his books and cooking yummy food.
What did you cook yesterday?
Cauliflower gnocchi with a vodka marinara sauce.

Salt, for obvious reasons, good quality olive oil and pepper to spice things up a bit.
What are you craving for at the moment?
Roadside paani puri and sev puri, but I am afraid it’ll be a while before I can satiate that craving.
What are you reading these days?
Pretty much existential reading like Sapiens: a Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari; Gene Machine: The Race to Decipher the Secrets of the Ribosome
by Venki Ramakrishnan; and the entire Asterix and TinTin series.

Money Heist, Hunters and Ozark.
