About Me

I grew up in a family where my mother used to cook everything at home, from roti / sabji to pani puri to khakhra, you name it and she cooked it for us and so for me love for cooking started in my mother’s kitchen. Initially I used to watch her cook, we used to watch various cooking shows and try new recipe. When I moved out and shifted to Pune for further studies that is when I realized the importance of “mummy ke hath ka khana” , thanks to my college mess πŸ˜› . I got a small stove and started cooking in my hostel, I used to remember how my mom used to make it and how she used to guide me over the phone and thats how I got much more interested in cooking food and experimenting ;). Coming from a Gujarati family, phulka (rotli) is part of our staple diet I remember how my mom used to carefully check all my rotis and give me feedback. I remember the happiness when I got it right for the first time. Initially it was mostly “safe” dishes like pasta or french fries or masala rice. now its been more den 6 years since I’m cooking and I believe now I can cook a full meal for my family.

Now that I’m married, I have my very own kitchen and someone to try my recipes. Its fun to cook when I have everything setup in my own kitchen. It feels good to go home at the end of the day, make dinner, and serve it to my family.

There is a saying that “you can reach a man’s heart through his stomach” I used to wonder if its really true, in my case it is indeed the truth ;).

One of my favorite ways to show my husband I love him is to cook for him and he never fails to appreciate my efforts. πŸ™‚ . I don’t cook for him out of duty but out of love like my mom did it for us.

And there are times when I want someone else to cook for me, which means going out to a restaurant. yayy and so my husband takes me to a fancy restaurant and we order and eat till we drop.

I hope you like my recipes because vegetarians eat lot more than just Paneer.
