“Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. And it’s much cheaper to buy somebody a book than it is to buy them the whole world!” ~ Gaiman.
I received two beautiful cook books, ‘The Café Spice’ and Silk Road Vegetarian’ from Tuttle publishing sometime back .
I was intrigued by the name ‘Silk road vegetarian’. I vaguely remember reading about silk route in my Geography lessons and was eager to find the connection between a ‘road’ and food.

“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.

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

She was a brilliant baker and we used to eagerly wait for Christmas so we could savour her rich fruity cakes. I can never forget that transparent box of neatly arranged dark, dense and moist fruity slices of Plum cake that she would lovingly share with us every year.
An Anglo-Indian by birth and a spinster, she was our English teacher who stayed very close to our colony in Udaipur. She was short and frail, she kept her long shiny white hair plaited down her neck and her hands would always smell like vanilla pods.

Christmas is round the corner and it’s just not right without a little bit of baking. I have been baking non-stop for the last few days and loving every moment of packing and sending these goodies to friends.
Nothing can beat the rich spiced Christmas cake loaded with caramel, brandy, vine fruits and nuts. But when short on time, I look forward to my short-cut recipes.

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” ~ Vonnegut
It has been over 5 years already and I still remember that moment when I decided to start a blog. My hands were unsteady, my heart pounding hard & loud….and I clicked that ‘enter’ button to begin my online journey through Lite Bite.
I had absolutely no idea or expectation as to where this journey will take me to. But what an amazing journey it has been!
Over the years, I am able to carve a beautiful path to reach to my dreams through Food blogging with the support of my loving family & friends. Hmm…well, as they say “You can’t go wrong where there is love and inspiration”.
‘Life is a rough biography. Memories smooth out the edges.’ Dante G.
Time can forget some memories, but there are some memories which can make us forget time and those memories make life sweeter.
Growing up in 1960s and 1970s meant that we remained uninfluenced by technology and many other complex electronic gadgets. In simple words, our life was practically devoid of many material things such as Barbie dolls, Lego sets, Television, computers and cell phones. Which indirectly helped us enjoy nature and human relationships to its fullest form.

Last few days went prepping and celebrating one of our biggest festivals, Diwali. I had a wonderful time with family and friends, whipping desserts, cooking grand feast and chatting all day long.
Diwali preparations started a week before at my home, shopping for new clothes, buying crackers, cleaning the house and finally sitting down to making sweets and savories.
When I think of Diwali, my mind wanders back to happy festive days spent at my granny’s home. Her house would start getting filled with the heady aromas of ghee fried besan and ajwain namkeenpare, well in advance before actual Diwali day.

“What keeps me motivated is not the food itself but all the bonds and memories the food represents.” M. Chiarello
I was slightly disturbed reading a message from a reader last evening which read like this “I love your recipes, but please include step-wise pictures of the recipes and increase the frequency of your blogposts.”
To which my reply was, “I am glad that you like the recipes here. But please understand that Lite Bite is not just a recipe blog, it’s my personal diary where I also love to share my …

‘When you take the step towards your dreams, you will be met with fears because you have never traveled this way before. As you go, you will discover that you had nothing to fear.’ ~ Gardner
Just as risk leads to more risk, one opportunity leads directly to another. And talking about this opportunity, quite honestly, I never thought that such opportunities could come my way through food blogging.
Some days back, I received a call from a representative of a very popular multinational food manufacturing company
