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.

Friends are the family you choose“~ J. Scott.

Here is a hurried post I was longing to write, when the non-stop photo shoots kept me busy and away from online world.

Well, finally I am opening happiness again, with two wonderful trips that shall never be forgotten.

Reminiscing couple of days of simple joy, love, laughter and fun with two different groups of blogger friends in Karaikudi.

Recipe & Food Styling | Tofu Pudding or Sattvik Kheer

The power to make food look mouth-watering on print and media is so inspiring and rewarding. As a food lover I feel fortunate to have worked with some of the best photographers and production houses in Chennai.

Last month was crazy as my shooting schedule went haywire with food styling projects pouring in from every possible media in the town..television media, magazines, packaging and You tube channels.

After a lot of filtering, here are some candid shots from the photo shoot which I accepted & executed for various medias in Chennai some time back.

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.

I turned around and looked at the representative from client’s office standing behind me. We would have spoken at length on topics ranging from food to Indian culture on the sets for last two days, but forgot to exchange our names.

Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.” ~ Andy Rooney.

I am enjoying my journey as a food stylist and was in for a pleasant surprise the other day when I received a call from the ace photographer Venkat Ram.

The photo-shoot was for a popular South Indian brand, Hatsun with a good network in dairy products. The photo-shoot was for their new venture into ready-to-eat frozen food product line by the name Oyalo.

Recipe & Food Styling | Curried Lentil and vegetables – Keeping life simple with realistic goals

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”~ Jim Rohn

It has been days since my last post on Lite Bite.

After the life-changing career shift through food blogging, time is one luxury I don’t have.

Finding a balance between the demands of family and fulfilling your dreams is tough when you are passionately inclined towards both.

Recipe | Strawberry Galette with Oatmeal crust – Remembering the gift of marriage

A couple in love is like a pair of scissors….two useless pieces of metal, until they are inextricably connected at the core so that they can move together as one and accomplish great things.” ~ Jack Canfield

KK and I have known each other for more than two decades. Marriage is just a reason, but lifelong friendship is the most precious gift that we received on 22nd January 1996.

Recipe | Chocolate Brownie – All you need is a new morning..

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. She is the one who opened my Gmail account and started my facebook page called DSOFT. She clicked pictures of the clothes we stitched and uploaded on the page.”

Sanjeeta, my tech-guru, please stand up where ever you areSaranya 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’ 🙂

Another fruitful year comes to an end. Well, you don’t need a new year to make a change, all you need is a new morning.

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.
