Hi – welcome to my blog !
I’m Nithya & this is a space to document and share my love for all things food. Hunger is a universal affectation and food its sole medicine. I hope to share & learn with fellow foodies and budding cooks, recipes and ideas for fulfilling and comforting food. Food that transcends borders and creates a warmth in your heart. Although the mainstay at our home happens to be traditional South Indian vegetarian food, I love experimenting with different ingredients and cuisines, so you will find recipes from all over the globe here (albeit vegetarian only!).
My love for food
I am a serious foodie and will never pass up an opportunity to try anything new in terms of food. I’m a true blue vegetarian and think that the ‘egg is vegetarian’ argument is bonkers. I love street food and gourmet with equal gusto. I am currently discovering the culinary paradise that Chennai has to offer. DH & family have very picky palates but love good food. What’s the point of stressing and working long hours and travelling? Earning a living. Which boils down to having your basic three meals a day. A good meal.
I am not a meticulous cook; I rely on instinct and approximation. I am not exacting with my measurement of spices, and I don’t strictly follow any recipe to the ‘t’. I trust my instincts, use aroma and taste to guide me, and tweak the recipe around to suit my tastes. I am also a lazy cook – I like recipes that are hassle free, and do not involve elaborate preparations. I am prepared to exert a certain amount of effort for a recipe, but I’m certainly not happy if its laborious – I would probably just lose interest halfway.
