Bhel Puri Recipe

I am blessed with two wonderful kids. My daughter is a complete foodie. And thank god for that. Now I have 2 guinea pigs at home ( first one being my hubby , of course). There’s one basic question that keeps coming up every now and then in my house…….” Mom , I am hungry, is there anything to eat???” “ Sure Dear, what will you have?” “Ummm…..Something Nice” And then follows an endless discussion about what all can be prepared….. and her wanting something NICER. If it is evening snack time……. BHEL PURI always comes to my rescue.

Modak Recipe – Ganesh Chaturthi Prasad

I am from a Maharashtrian Brahmin family……. And according to our tradition we start any new venture with “ GANAPATI BAPPA MORYA”!! As kids we used to wait for the Ganapati festival, for the decorations, puja, aarti, music and masti …..but above all, we used to wait for all the delicacies we’ll get to stomach!! One of those specialties is “MODAK”…. And for the same reason I chose to write about its recipe as my first one!! When I started trying out various recipes , my Mom and MIL were my lifelines. “Hello….Mom?, How do you make Modak? Its nothing…

First step into the blogosphere!

Yup……..you’re right! I am finally doing it!!………penning down my take on food and cooking!! I was just like almost any other girl those days……..in my own world of Friends ,School, College , Studies, Career………I had never ever stepped into the kitchen ( except for an occasional tea, coffee or maggi……if u can count that as cooking). Kitchen in our home was considered my Mom’s and more so my Grandmom’s domain of expertise. We (me, my brother and two sisters) waited for the glorious Sundays , when we could make special requests…….and then impatiently wait for the yummy food to come…
