“I have to mention about a person who played an important role in this project. I didn’t know how to use social media network or to even send a mail.

“Sanjeeta, my tech-guru, please stand up where ever you are” Saranya looked at me from the stage and smiled.
I shyly stood and waved to the audience. I could see my son smiling in disbelief after hearing her mom referred as ‘tech-guru’ 🙂

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.

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.

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

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 🙂

I did my first few years of primary schooling in a small town called Zawar Mines, in Rajasthan.
Dad was a doctor, we lived in an independent spacious bungalow surrounded by huge garden on all the three sides of our house.
Mom converted the front portion into a cozy sit out. Small cement benches placed in the centre of soft and neatly manicured lawn decked with some rare and exotic varieties of flowering plants she collected from our LTC trips every year.

“Wait, don’t keep that box for washing…taste the dish in it and tell me how is it?” asked hubby, who saw me holding and sniffing that small blue box. The tiny box and the food inside looked unfamiliar to me.
“Hmm..it does taste good, but what is it and how did it come in your lunch-bag?” staring at him, I asked.

Creamy, mildly spicy and an exotic recipe, Paneer Pasanda is a very elaborate Indian dish served in many hi end restaurants in India. Cottage cheese are sliced into thin triangles which are stuffed with a paste of nuts, coated with chickpea flour marinate, deep fried and then dunked into rich creamy gravy to make a delicious Paneer Pasanda.

Back then, I never questioned her food choices….not that I knew much about it either 🙂

Well, well…it took almost 25 years and an article in New paper for my mom to get convinced that I am doing well in life.
I left Udaipur in 1990 for higher studies and worked for a few years before getting married & settling in Chennai for good. But then, my mom was always concerned about me leaving my job, until I got myself involved in activities related to my blog Lite Bite.
Later, whenever I called her to tell about my …
