Recipe | Beetroot Millet Rotis & Panchkuti Dal – Of  food, lunchboxes and childhood memories..

Food is not about impressing people. It’s about making them feel comfortable.” Ina Garten

I don’t remember my lunch time in preschool or nursery days but I do have a vivid memory of it during my elementary school.

Mom was a working woman and as usual morning time used to be very hectic at home. She would cook breakfast & lunch for me and my brother and pack our dabbas before leaving for office at 8am.

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.

Recipe & Food Styling | Infused water – Hydrating the smart way..

I always loved waking up in the morning to a cup of warm turmeric & pepper milk, a morning ritual that helps me feel good all day long. This ritual takes a slight turn during summer season when I replace the same with infused water, first thing in the morning.

Infused water..Hmm..nothing fancy, it’s just our good old H2O combined with a few slices of fruits, vegetables or herbs. I first saw pretty pictures it and read about the benefits of it on Pinterest a few years back and since then, am hooked to this infused water.

Hmm..will try my best” I smiled and looked at him from the corners of my eyes…the lad is all grown up.

School days are over for son and he is ready for yet another milestone in his life’s journey. We packed his bags and were on our way to attend the orientation program in his college and also to help him settle comfortably in the hostel later.

Recipe & Food Styling | Healthy Broccoli and Amaranth leaves Flat-breads – Things that keep me busy, happy and sane..

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

Rewind a few years back to when I used to get panic attacks whenever a couple of projects land in a span of few days. I would become anxious and stressed out as the deadlines draw near. It was a real tough time to find a point of balance between my career and personal life, more so when you are passionately inclined towards both.

However, with over seven years of work experience in the industry, I now feel more at ease with myself.

Recipe & Food Styling | Banana-Orange Oats Cake – It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop..

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

I am not a prolific user of various social media platforms but I do appreciate the power it holds to connect with people and to grow your business.

There are times when family commitments and your work fill a large part of your life and the best you can do is to unplug from social media on a regular basis.

These small breaks help me focus on the work in hand and also give ample time to relax.

Recipe & Food Styling | Quick potato curry and spinach bedmi pooris – When pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work..

When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.” ~ Nancy coey

I received a call from Maheshwar (photographer) few days back for a client meet and decided to visit their office to discuss about the food shoot and have a look at the kitchen.

As I enter their newly constructed terrace kitchen cum office, a sudden waft of an interesting mix of Indian spices welcomed me. It’s 10 am and I can see the kitchen buzzing with activities, as large pots of curries are stirred in one corner and rice is steamed in another.

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 | Mixed lentil, vegetable stir-fry and millet – Holding hands together..

A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” ~Dave Meurer

Whenever I reflect on our marriage, it brings a smile on my face. I never thought I would have a love marriage, but that was what was in store for me. Yes, ours was a love marriage against all odds and distances.

22nd January 1996, it’s been 21 years of togetherness. Well, Marriage is just a reason, lifelong friendship is the most precious gift that we received on this day.
