I hail from a place called Thottam in the erstwhile South Canara district (now Udupi district) of Karnataka. I was born in Parkala, a small village near Manipal but brought up and educated in Bangalore. I have been married for 30 years now, my husband now a retired bank officer. I have two sons – elder one is a dentist and younger one is an engineer. Both of them have been instrumental in setting up this blog, helping me with images, recipe selection and editing.
If you like cooking and reading blogs, you will be aware that there are several wonderful food blogs out there, maintained by professionals as well as by interested but very talented amateurs. Over time I will compile a set of links to them. In spite of such a large number of food bloggers, Indian food is so vast and varied that you will still find variations of recipes that suit your taste and preferences. If I find an interesting variation of my recipe on another blog, I will also link to them.
Overall my intention behind blogging is to maintain a valuable record, to keep myself occupied and to share my experiences (including mistakes !) over the years with people.
