Recipe & Food Styling | Shahi Mushroom Curry – To jump off the cliff and learn how to make wings on the way down..

The lessons you learn the hard way are always the ones that stick…

All along, and ever since I was first exposed to commercial food styling shoots, it really hit me to think that how smooth my transition would have been had there been someone to guide me through the nitty gritty of food styling.

Back then, I was fairly new to the commercial world of food styling and had no mentor whom I could observe or assist. I had to jump off the cliff and learn how to make wings on the way down 🙂

Recipe & Food Styling | Healthy Oats Cookies – Always remember to smile and look up at what you got in life..

The year 2016 has been a whirlwind.

I met so many amazing people, ventured into a couple of projects involving uncertainty, yet successfully completed all and learned so much last year. With all the ups and downs of last year, the one thing I always remember is to smile and look up at what I got in life.

Recipe & Food Styling | Finger Millet Dumplings with spicy tomato curry – And life is moving at its own pace..

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” ~ Confucius

I was like a headless chicken the whole of last month, when no amount of work was ever enough. And the pressure to keep up with the deadlines and managing home at the same time was making me lose sleep.

I finally decided to slow down a bit and also to spend less time on my social media accounts. Not a wise decision for a food blogger, you say..but then there is a feel-good factor which is a reason good enough to continue the same for some more time.

So, life is moving at its own pace for me and I find lot of time to do many other things which were put on hold.

Recipe & Food Styling | Instant Vegetable Idlis – And story on a plate..

When you believe in someone you profoundly increase their ability to have faith in themselves and achieve. ~ Jason Versey

Sanjeeta, are you free today..we want to discuss with you about an innovative product launching video. More later, when we meet in person, bye” said Arabbhi and disconnected the phone.

I have been very fortunate to have worked with some of the very talented and creative persons in the industry and Avinash Hariharan  &  Arabbhi of Happy Unicorn production house is one such couple.

I was excited and a little anxious at the same time to meet them and to know about the new venture. When someone believes in you, it gives you a sense of accountability to prove them right.

Recipe & Food Styling | Millet Adai with Vegetable Avial – Choose a job you like, and you will never have to work a day in your life

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ~ Jack Canfield

I’ve been doing commercial food styling projects for over 5 years now, and it’s been an amazing journey so far.

The assignments that come my way are freelance projects, Ad shoots, magazine tie ups and television commercials of various brands and companies. I absolutely love my job, as every new project brings in the opportunity to meet new people and acquire different skill sets.

Plagiarism –  You steal their emotions and tell your spectators a lie with your work

“If you plagiarize other’s techniques, you steal their emotions and tell your spectators a lie with your work. Works as such equals zero.” ~ Wu Guan-Zong

Sadly, the beautiful world of food blogging is becoming a nightmare for most of us. Every day we wake up to a new plagiarist who shamelessly indulges in the act of copy and pasting content or pictures from our blogs.

The whole act was limited to sharing the stolen content and pictures on their blogs or forum for some time. But the issue of plagiarism has taken ugly turn by lifting videos and also copying the entire blog and consolidating it into App.

Recipes | Bejar Rotis with spinach papad curry and kachumbar – Appreciating small things in life..

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~ Frederick Keonig

Reminiscing good old days, appreciating small things in life and connecting with beautiful people, keeps me happy…always.

Sunday lunches have been a big affair since childhood. Mom would decide the menu a day before and start prepping for the dishes early in the morning. Though the menu would be a simple Indian meal with a dessert to go with it, but eating together made us try new food without making fuss and helped creating a feeling of belonging.

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.

Recipes | Tofu Tikka and Achaari Paneer Tikka

Foods that bring back comforting memories are precious and so is my homemade Paneer. Cottage cheese or paneer rarely made onto the shopping list of my mother, in fact it was never sold in any shop or super market back then.

Three vessels would always occupy the prime space of my mom’s refrigerator, fresh milk, leftover milk and the last one had thick cream or malai collected from the leftover milk.

Recipes | Quick Foxtail Millet Pulao and Kodo Millet Upma

Whether it is a modern day Pancake a sandwich or a traditional chila, theplas, upma, parathas, or Idly...breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. You can be so creative with these breakfast recipes. But wait..on most of the week days, I can only dream of all these delicacies. When my day begins at 5.30 early morning and ends around 11 in night, cooking an elaborate meal is a far cry.

Sunday is the day when I can afford to do things differently. Come Sunday and you can even find a traditional Khamani with sev or a contemporary French toast with fruit compote and a fresh fruit & vegetable juice on our breakfast table.
