Welcome to my blog! A friend of mine, recently pointed out that on average, ~80% of my statuses, conversation starters or comments in social situations, networking or otherwise, involve food. Everything from the art of cooking, to nibbling on the ingredients before tossing it in the pan, to being gleeful at a beautifully laid out dish provides me with an aesthetic value that I find hard to describe.

Much as I would like to spend my days in the kitchen trying out new recipes, during the day I spend my time in lab. I am a graduate student  post doctoral fellow in a genetics lab and don’t get me wrong, I enjoy it tremendously. The third limb of my life is dance. I have been dancing Bharathanatyam since I was 6 years old and cannot imagine life without it. Henri Matisse, a noted French painter once said “Creativity takes courage”. The value of that statement in cooking cannot be underestimated. So the next time you wonder if you could add raw mangoes to your grandma’s traditional stew, try it. You may surprise yourself. Now, let’s get cooking.

    Hi! Your pictures and blog posts look fantastic and I was wondering if you would be willing to take some pictures for some of our articles on our website. We would greatly appreciate your photographs and I am sure you would enjoy trying out some new recipes or simply doing your own. Our budget is on the small side, but I think it would be easy for you. Email us back at wikihowphotos@gmail.com if you are interested at all. Thanks!

    Pseudo vegetarian? Let us know how you really feel 😛

    1. I don’t eat meat but I cook meat for my friends. I end up tasting some of the dishes I make. So thats why I said pseudo 🙂

    Just a suggestion, I couldn’t find the search bar anywhere, so perhaps you can include it or make it more visible? Like right above the archives selection.
    Another one might be to include tags for ingredients but I guess the search would suffice. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for bringing it up. I added the search bar at the top of the page.
