My husband and I cook everyday after work. He is a fantastic sous chef and I cook Gujarati food learnt via osmosis from my mother. The result is quick, healthy, fresh food as opposed to the ready meals that my colleagues eat.

I started blogging last year following a 4 month trip through South-East Asia, Central America and the USA. During our trip my husband and I met many wonderful people and inevitably shared a meal with them. As we discussed the food we were eating, my love of cooking was revealed and I was often asked to email recipes to our new friends. I decided then that it was time to share my recipes with the world to prevent my family's recipes being lost in time and to encourage people to cook healthy Indian food.

I didn't imagine that I would still be blogging 10 months on but I love hearing from people when they have made a meal and enjoyed it - especially when they are new to cooking. The most common comments are receive are "It was so easy and so delicious!". Yes! That's the point - cooking Indian food is not technically difficult.
