About this Cook
I love good food and I believe home cooked food is the best nutritionally and tastewise.
My favorite things to cook
All Indian vegetarian meals, though I will ocassionally try my hand at cokking some western vegetarian meal
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was an excellent cook. She believed in full course meals and balanced meals. We all had to sit down and eat, no eating and running in her house. All the family had to eat together. My mom is the same way. I guess the tradition is to make a balanced healthy meal and the whole family eats together.
My cooking triumphs
I am good at making dals. I in fact specialize in making dals. And I am told that I cook really fast. (multi tasking is the key here.)
My cooking tragedies
Biriyani(a spiced, slowcooked rice dish, with meat/vegetables). I am not too fond of Biriyani and the only time I tried to make it, it turned into a soggy mess. Needless to say, I haven't plucked up the courage to try it again. :)

Simple Whole Wheat Bread
This is a great recipe. I have never baked bread before, and I have hard it is difficult, especially without the use of a bread machine. Since it was my first attempt, I wanted to make only one loaf. So I cut the recipe accordingly and followed it, except for subbing sugar for honey. I didn't have honey in my pantry. After reading some of the other reviews, I also decided to add some whole flaxseeds. It turned out perfect. Thank you. I can not go back to store bought bread now. Again, thank you for this wonderful and simple recipe.
