As someone who loves a good meal, cooking one, came to me as a natural passion. I belong to a family where meal times consisted of not just food, but also noisy conversation centered around the events of the day and discussing the menu for the next. (ah yes, we are a greedy lot! )

For the most part of my life so far, my contribution in the kitchen was assisting mom and my duties were limited, to chopping veggies and laying the table. Then along came the great Indian wedding, and I was suddenly the queen of my very own kingdom. My curiosity about this magical world, coupled with an enthusiastic sous-chef (my husband, Vineet), led me to take on the challenge of preparing meals on a daily basis, and not succumbing to the convenience of hiring a cook.

This blog is a product of my experiments with food (not all are life threatening :D) for my fellow culinary enthusiasts - especially the newly weds and hungry bachelors and is dedicated to the women who've inspired me in the kitchen;
Aji (s),Ma and Nigella Lawson.

Watermelon-Strawberry smoothie

Made this, just this morning. Gave me the much needed zap I needed to get my eyes to open. Super simple, nourishing and ultimately refreshing... perfect for the oncoming summer months.

3 cups Watermelon, chopped in cubes
6-8 fresh Strawberries
Juice of 1/4 lime
5-6 fresh Mint leaves (optional)
4-5 Ice cubes
2 tbsp honey (if fruit isn't naturally sweet)
Chop all the fruits into big chunks. Stick everything into a blender and whirrr it till smooth and thick. Drink up!
