Recipe & Food Styling | Mixed Vegetable Pickle

Priceless childhood memories, some great friends, good food and endless time spent on Fatehsagar… these are the memories which make life sweeter.

Come winter and makki and bajre ki roti become staple food for us. Mom will make a huge batch of fresh vegetable pickle using mustard oil. We used to run out of house the day she would heat oil to makes this pickle. The strong pungent smell of mustard oil was hard on our nose.

Recipes | Avocado and Tomato Almond Pasta – Staying positive in tough times

Life is not the way it’s supposed to be, it’s the way it is. The way you cope is what makes the difference.”~Virginia Satir

Packing..Checked, flight details..checked, just one more day to go and we will be having fun at your granny’s home” I looked at children and smiled, barely hiding my excitement of meeting mom and just being in Udaipur again.

But destiny has its own plans and sometimes unexpected things can happen. We went through tough times, the very thought of which makes me shudder. The trip was called off.

Recipe & Food Styling | Healthy Oats & Millet Porridge – Expect nothing and you’re apt to be surprised..

Sometimes what you’re looking for comes when you’re not looking at all.”

With couple of television commercials, Ad shoots and the ongoing project at home, things have been a bit frenzied last few weeks.

So hectic, that at times I started to feel the pinch of physical exhaustion and insomnia on the sets. But in all, I have had some great time meeting people, cooking and styling food products for new brands and companies.

Recipe | Curried Long beans and potatoes – You can find inspiration just about anywhere

You can find inspiration just about anywhere!

People use horses and bullock carts to travel and transport things, kids still play outdoors, and women light the firewood for every meal they cook.
Paved roads, electricity, cell phones and internet are luxury here, but life is beautiful and blissfully simple. There is a sense of peace here that can’t be replicated in the cities.

Yes, this is the heart & soul of India – a typical Indian village, I visited during my last trip to Udaipur.

Recipe & Food Styling |Spicy Lentil Curry aka Paruppu Urandai Kuzhambu – And I am ready to test my wings one more time..

When you’re following your passion, you won’t need to be motivated.

There was a time when, I used to struggle to manage my blog with my self-imposed technology phobia and wondered if I would ever make it to today.

But today, sitting in the office of a very popular brand of Chennai, ready to sign the mega project….my hands are shaking and I could hear every beat of my heart. And I am ready to test my wings again!

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”~ Phil Jackson

Hi Sanjeeta, there is a shoot on 14th, are you free?”

 “Yes”

 “See you there!”

This is the conversation with Kunal before most of the food photo-shoot assignments we do together.

A Brownie that sizzled – There are some surprises, we are better off without them

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Churchill

I don’t really like surprises, not the bad and big ones anyway. Whether in life or in my kitchen at home, I expect things to happen just the way they always have.

Hmm..if only wishes were horses…

The fact of the matter is that nothing is ever certain and life gives you strange surprise when you least expect from it.

Recipe |Sorghum Pilaf aka Jowar Ghoogri – And life goes on

Secure your dreams for they are the wings of your soul” Bianca Bower.

What do you do when you are caught in the hectic happenings of the week?

The never-ending household grind, grocery shopping, dropping and picking children from school, driving daughter from one corner of the city to other for sports & music classes in evening, dropping son for his evening extra classes, organizing for shoots and then squeezing time in between to manage this blog.

Well, in reality there’s not much I can do about it but to vent my feelings and anger in every other blogpost…or..errr…just hope for one another Sunday to put a break on my fast-paced lifestyle 🙂

But then, I am also enjoying the various phases and changes that life brings every single day as time marches on.

Recipe | Sorghum Patties and Jowar ki Keech

I was delighted to find a new organic store opened close to my house loaded with many unusual food products I would love to cook with. I bought a few packets of red Sorghum (jowar) and sweet smelling pure cane sugar or as they call it sucanat (sugar cane natural).

The red Sorghum has harder skin and more nutty taste than the white grain and takes a little longer to cook.

Recipe & Food Styling | Eggless Mango Semolina Squares

It has been 7 years already and the kind of euphoria that Lite Bite is creating, year after year is beyond words.

Lately I have been so wrapped up in constant outdoor photo-shoots and family commitments that this online baby is completely neglected.

But then, it never ceases to surprise me any less. Lite Bite is listed in the ‘Indian Top Blog’ List‘ of 2015  yet again….some good online karmas I suppose 🙂
