Taking a Look Back
Growing up in Kolkata, India, I fell in love with food as it was at the center of my family’s world. Watching my grandma work her magic in the kitchen, whipping up amazing dishes from memory, I couldn’t help but dream of doing the same one day.
Fast forward to college, that’s when I really took the plunge into the culinary arts, learning from the best – my grandma! One standout moment was cooking a whole dinner for my friends on my birthday, topped off with a homemade cake. With her constant encouragement and guidance, I jumped headfirst into this wonderful world of flavors that I now happily share with you.
The Joyful Journey into Indian Cooking
When I first came to the US for grad school, I was a total newbie in the kitchen. But hey, that’s where every great adventure begins, right? Along the way, I learned to trust my senses, letting the smells and colors of my dishes guide me.
Step by step, with cookbooks as my best buds, I started to peel back the layers of Indian cuisine, discovering that it’s actually a fun, creative art, rather than a strict science. And as I got more comfy with my cooking, I added my own special flair to each dish.
Before long, I found myself teaching Indian cooking classes at the local community center, showing folks how easy and enjoyable it can be. I’d teach them to whip up masala dishes with confidence, without getting hung up on exact measurements.
And let me tell ya, it’s not about following some rule book – it’s about having a blast in the kitchen! I remember the time I swapped out tomatoes for pasta sauce in a chicken curry. You better believe it turned out awesome, with ginger, garlic, and garam masala stealing the show!
So don’t be shy – Indian cooking isn’t scary, it’s an amazing journey just waiting for you to jump on board!
