Cooking is an art that is usually passed on from mother to daughter and my case is not different. Many of the recipes that I am going to put up on this blog are those that I learnt from my mom and/or my own variations on them. Some of them of course may have no connection whatsoever to her years of cooking – after all items like Garam masala powder, Tomato sauce, Soya sauce have never been part of her cooking. Yet I think I largely owe my cooking skills to her.
I love cooking and that includes trying out new recipes from time to time. This blog may contain mostly Konkani recipes to start with, but in course of time I will also put up some of the North Indian dishes, Juices, Jams, Biscuits, Dry chutney powders, Pickles etc. You may even request for recipes of your choice – either because you have not prepared it before or just to know the variations out there.
I am just learning and new to the medium of blogging and to pace myself well, at least for the first few weeks, I will put up one new recipe every Saturday and Wednesday. Any comment you leave, whether about the blog or about specific recipes will be an encouragement.Finally, I would like to dedicate this blog to my Father-in-law who was a more like a father, guide and philosopher to me. He was also a trustee of the temple in the town of Sirsi (North Kanara) for several years from 1960-83.
