I'm a part time lawyer and a full time lover; of food; of earthen ware; of the sound of the waves and the smell of the rain; of fine beer and all the souls I hold dear; of the warmth of the hearth and the stumbling blocks in our paths. Although I am originally from Kerala (the southernmost State in India), I have been lucky enough to spend a fair share of time in many other parts of the country. This coupled with the fact that I come with the strong backing of a family of utterly brilliant home chefs, my recipes are either pebbles I have picked up in my culinary journey or gems that have been polished and passed on for generations in my family. I realize Indian food is misunderstood as much as it is loved globally. I also wholeheartedly believe that the world desperately needs to see beyond the adjectives that are popularly associated with Indian food such as ‘spicy’, ‘oily’, or even ‘unhealthy’ for that matter. I believe the world needs to know that Indian food is not in any way simply synonymous to ‘curry’ and certainly not synonymous to the concoction that is produced on mixing store bought curry powder in hot water. Let me take you on a region wise culinary adventure where we play with spices, cooking techniques, lentils, grains etc. typical to each region in India, while we break down together all the myths that surround this incredibly diverse, wholesome, hearty and balanced culinary realm.
