“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”

Virginia Woolf

Food makes the world go round.

Doesn’t it?

Okay, maybe just my world.

I love getting lost in the kitchen baking cookies and cakes for tea or cooking up something new that my friends and family get to quality test. They love the trials most of the time, except for when they complain that I’m fattening them up.

Bah-ha!

They don’t have to eat it, do they?

They just can’t stop themselves. Seriously, who’s fault is it? Theirs or mine?

If you don’t want to get fat, just take a bit and leave it. You don’t have to come back for seconds.

Anyways, back to food. I’ve learned a lot from my mom. We grew up sitting on the paaneri (platform) stirring our traditional East Indian marzipan and vanilla cream since we were barely 5-year-old kids. And learning how to bake semolina cakes and fry potatoes and make a yummy chicken khudi. Or a chicken tope. Or a chicken roast. Mom’s chicken roast stuffed with liver pudding is so yummy. So is her duck moile and every other random thing she makes! That reminds me I have to put down every recipe one of these days.

And I love the way mom cooks. Food never tastes the same twice. It’s always throw approximately the same things together to make somewhat the same dish. No measurements! It’s almost like being Alice in Wonderland. Sis and me have learned to cook like mom. Just throw things together and it tastes awesome!

But what was I talking about?

Yes, food!

Friends ask for recipes, and we rattle off a number of ingredients. Then they say, but how much. And we say, till it tastes good. Which really gets someone or the other miffed. So I finally got around to measuring out mom’s recipes a few years ago. And I’ve got my friends to put down some of theirs too. Smile, grin, smile!

So if you’re looking for gluten free chicken soup or special East Indian chicken tope or a number of other dishes, you’ve come to the right place! And a PS, if you’re looking for healthy meals, what on earth is wrong with you? Okay, seriously, we make healthy dishes too, but the majority of our food is hearty homecooked food that’s rich and flavorsome.

If you’re not crazy about cooking, and you’re looking for restaurant reviews and where to eat or what to eat in a city, head over to our flavors section. Otherwise, carry on reading for some yummy recipes!
