About this Cook
An engineer turned housewife who doesn't need to cook but does so because I love to. As a kid, I always thought I would be a horrible cook, and I had no interest at all in cooking or food, for that matter. My husband however, loves food and he introduced me to a whole new world of taste and flavor - and I started cooking. I am still a newbie. I can't cook rice properly but I love cooking!
My favorite things to cook
Cakes and quick breads. I haven't tried breads with yeast yet. Indian curries - especially the humble Dal. Pasta. And soups..... so far!
My cooking triumphs
Yesterday, I made a scruptious cake - which is by far, my best. A simple vanilla - coffee marbled cake.
My cooking tragedies
Oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so many!! Like my try with 'Masala Idli'. My dad was furious for days after eating it :-P

Cinnamon Bread I
RIch!! Rich!! Rich!! Mine turned out to be slightly too sweet. It wasn't very easy to make. But next time around, I will halve the sugar in the dough.

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread
a bit too rough. But tastes well with a drizzle of plain sugar-vanilla frosting

Spicy Apricot Loaf
I just baked my first fruit loaf using this recipe. However, I used fresh squeezed orange juice instead of pineapple juice and reversed the quantities of white flour and wholewheat. I really liked the result, though it tastes a bit 'eggy'. Also, I didnt have any baking soda, so I added another 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder (I am a novice. I dont know if that's ok, but I did it, anyways!)
