About Me

Hi there. I am from India. Though my main channels of expression are words and cooking these days, I do enjoy other things in life like dance, shopping, makeup, catching up with friends, eating out and reading self help books and magazines.

Yes, I do some of the typical girlie/womanly stuff and I am proud of it :-)) By profession I had been in the field Information Technology for more than 10 years and took a break from work life some years ago. My life as a homemaker started unearthing my hidden passion for cooking. The seed for this passion was probably sown years ago by my late grand mother. Though I never cooked before marriage, I would be awed by the kind of love which my grand mother poured into her cooking. Though she herself had the diet of a sparrow :-), she would derive great satisfaction from people enjoying her dishes. The way her eyes would light up when people relished her meals, that image, that emotion has stayed with me all the years.

Now that I am much more active in the kitchen I feel the same kind of enthusiasm and feel that she must be feeling happy somewhere 🙂

  2. Hi,
    I am, like yourself, a software engineer in the IT workforce and have a PhD in computer science. I have been researching cooking and health of IT workers in general for several years now. In short, after due thought, I feel uncomfortable with eggless recipes that use baking soda. I am actually avoiding yeast and baking soda/powder based recipes and packaged foods. Thought I’d let you know. Best Regards – Chandra Gupta

  5. Hello there! I recently found your blog, and am charmed by it. I love the simple, yet flavourful recipes you write about. I love your way of writing, the way you write about the little things from your everyday life. I wish you’d bring this blog back to life – please do! I notice the last post here is over 2 years old – I hope you’ve been doing well meanwhile!
