“There is no sincere Love than Love of food” George Bernard Shaw
I know cooking does not come easy and if you hate to cook you will just avoid it. I loved helping my mom in the kitchen from my school days and continue to do it even now when I visit India. When I started cooking on my own, I began trying out recipes from different cuisines around the world, often with my own variations to it. My husband supports me a lot in my little kitchen "experiments", and he is also my best critique. Some of these dishes have created lovely memories for both of us. Therefore, I started noting down the recipes and then decided why not share my collection with rest of the world and here's my blog Kushi's Kitchen.
Being a Konkani, I have strong love for food (batate song, batate vagu, garlic dal, meere dalithoy, dalithoy, gajbaje, valval, pathrado, chane ghasi, moong ghasi, madgane, phenori etc. etc.) served during different festivities both at home and at temples. However after coming to USA, I miss those special occasions a lot. Sometimes when I cannot control the craving for a particular konkani dish, I immediately call my mother to ask for her recipe, and try to replicate and recreate those beautiful old memories.
You will find a lot of baking recipes in my blog. But frankly, I did not know anything about baking nor I had an oven at my home during childhood. After seeing, and also trying out, a variety of bread and cakes at stores here in USA I decided to give baking a shot. I love the entire process of baking so much that I bake bread every week and post it every Wednesday. From my experience, I must say that homemade breads are always tastier than the store bought ones. I encourage everyone to start baking at home and I am sure you will love it as well.
The pictures in my earlier blog posts were from taken using a cell phone camera, and I have started using a DSLR camera recently. Therefore, I will update the pictures as and when I repeat the old recipes. I am posting vegetarian recipes for now and soon I will start posting non-vegetarian recipes.
I am often asked by my readers on what I do mostly during free time? Well, during my free time I watch a lot of food and travel shows, and it keeps inspiring me to try out recipes from different cuisines. I also believe in a healthy lifestyle, so I do some light workout, zumba, and other dance forms.
I think its time to wrap up my introduction. Try out these simple, easy recipes that have created happy memories for my family, and don't forget to share your suggestions and recipe variations!!!
