Introduction Welcome to my blog, where I catalog the tastes and aromas of our kitchen. Before I begin, I want to thank. I want to thank the ‘mothers’ of my life for inspiring me to cook. Denise, my American mom– thank you for teaching me the basics, and for teaching me that life is too short to repeat a recipe. Dadi, my paternal grandmother– for buttering our toasts in the morning so perfectly that every bite had a good and even dose of butter on it and for that delicious spicy yogurt bread she made for us. I miss you Dadi. Nani, my maternal grandmother– for teaching me her famous onion soup, poha and for adding extra chocolate chip toppings on our ice cream. Mom, my mom– for a warm cake when we came home from school, for showing me how baking comes with patience and precise measurement. For eating chaat on the road with me and then allowing me to skip dinner. And last… but definitely not the least, Mummy, my mother-in-law– for being such an amazing cook, for never ever letting anyone in her life go hungry, knowing how to improvise in cooking situations and for never tiring out.
