I have been cooking since I was 9 years old. Well before I was allowed to touch the stove. My hot medium? Our toaster oven. The toaster oven acted as my platform for bizarre concoctions that I would force upon older sister or even myself. I vividly remember taking Wonder Bread and putting feta cheese and olive oil on it, hoping that the cheese would melt. Did it melt? No. And it didn't taste great either. Signs of greatness or signs of a nutcase? You tell me.
Once I was able to use the stove I could not be stopped. My favorite thing to make was and still is Indian food. It has always been my favorite cuisine (followed closely by Japanese food, primarily sushi). I preferred it over American food and would proudly proclaim that "I was not a pizza person !" Now I eat pretty much any cuisine and that includes pizza!
I cook Indian food because its what I love. I want to learn and preserve the old recipes and also create new ones. This blog is an adventure in cooking and tasting. Cooking is a science but doesn't need to be an precise (unless you are baking, which is something I stink at). Embrace your ingredients and appreciate what you have. If you mess up then the world isn't over. Learn from you mistakes and go from there. When I cook, I never measure, I always eyeball. Useless when giving recipes to others. I hope this blog inspires people to cook Indian food or just cook for themselves.
