Easy Vegan Chocolate Almond Cake (and a lesson in tolerance)

Harini is one of the first food bloggers I met in Mumbai, and we instantly became friends. It’s not very difficult to make friends with Harini–she’s a transparent soul, full of life and vigour–chatty, well-read, superlatively talented (she can stitch, embroider, crochet, style, photograph, is a phenomenal cook…) and most importantly, she is very kind.
