Yes. I do stick bindis all over my body. I remember watching my grandmother adorn her forehead every day with a bindi. She would do Aarti in the Mandir and bring the fire back to me... She'd smile and tell me to never stop singing. I remember seeing my first tribal women in Rajasthan... I remember feeling like they were the most beautiful women I'd ever seen. I believe in creating private rituals that help you connect with your inner being... The infinite knowledge within. I stick bindis all over my body because it reminds me that this body is my temple, that I am a part of a legacy of shakti... Moon warriors... Divine feminine... And as women, as humans, we are beyond beauty... We are beyond mortality. And that knowing feels good. 🙏🏾 🌙

Food Worship

Every one celebrates their love for food through their insta accounts. Especially when you’re a musician who not only feeds the soul but whips some juicy delights too!
The best food is cooked with love and this Sunday I cooked this next level Shakshuka for my girlfriend @deeabolique I say next level because it really was. :) I used some pork chops, tandoori chicken, feta, mushroom, peppers, zucchini and made it really wholesome. Now I'll do a video for this on my channel as always but here is recipe anyway and let me know how you like it :) I started with a small piece of left over pork chop from last night. It was a fully cooked chop but I took 1 part which had fat and meat and cut into tiny slivers which I fried in the pan, added a spring onion white, plus garlic and cooked further till they were close to brown. No oil needed as I rendered the fat from the pork. Then added the peppers and cooked some more, then the mushrooms and tomatoes, added in the paprika, cayenne pepper, regular pepper and salt. Cook cook cook. Then add some tomato puree and chicken stock. Cover and cook. Then taste the sauce. Add the shredded tandoori chicken and zuchinni. Now I like zuchinni with some bite so I added it this late otherwise add it earlier if you like it soft. Then after 2 minutes more I added the eggs, some feta and covered and cooked. In 2 minutes it was done. Garnished with spring onions. What a sexual dish it was, yellow running yolk. NOM NOM NOM. If you like what I do then you can always follow me on instagram @demonstealer and or you can subscribe to my youtube channel www.youtube.com/headbangerskitchen #food #foodporn #instafood #zomato #headbangerskitchen #foodgasm #shakshuka #shakshukha #eggs #foodie A photo posted by Demonstealer (@demonstealer) on
