Namaste!! A warm welcome to “Indianrecipe4u”. I am Kavitha, a simple Indian woman living here in USA, with my beloved husband. After being a happiest girl all these years with loving mom-dad-cutie sis and lovely friends around, married and stepped into United States a year and a half ago with my darling husband Ravi. Passed few months in comforting myself with the new life, place, people and food too here in US. Residing in a place which is almost calm and peace with lot of greenery and hills around. A wild and beautiful place but away from Indian race. Travelling, Browsing, Cooking, and Singing are some of my best hobbies. This place had pushed a pause button to my career and gave an opportunity to discover myself differently… With all those I love. It’s just me, my hobbies ‘n’ my sweet home now.
Cooking and Me…!
Never ever thought in the years before that “Cooking” is gonna be a part of my hobbies list. I must say, it was because of my dad. He is a Happy Man always. He eats happily, works happily and sleeps happily 🙂 A real cook is born when there is a best foodie around and a best cook is born when there is a best critique around. Remember.., A foodie is never a glutton which is a misconception in some parts!! My dad was great foodie so, occasionally, I had used my minimum cooking skills to impress my dad for my pocket money 😉 and eventually, discovered a foodie in me. All my mom’s recipes are less spicy and very healthy. She was the best cook. I used to help her in the kitchen and unknowingly, grasped some basics from her. And now, it helped me feed my darling hubby the food he loves with no complaints. But, Ravi is the best critique though 🙂 Now, I very much enjoy the FUN of cooking for not any pocket money but for, It makes me feel so fulfilled and happy when I see some satisfying and happy faces while having my food. I do search and learn recipes from people as well as internet and experiment them in my kitchen.. few experiments by myself too. And after an every failure experiment, I learn the ways to improvement.
“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.”
So.. food is always a pleasure and cooking is always FUN! 🙂
Before talking anything about “indianrecipe4u” I shall talk about my dearest and nearest friend ‘n’ ex-collegue, Anju, also, my partner in keeping up this website. I could never gel with any of my friends until today, at par to that I did with Anju ‘n’ Jeeevs(Hez a cars boy but not food.., so will not talk much abt him 😉 ). Anju stood up as my friend in need and is a lovely friend indeed. We were casually conversing some day and she suddenly asked why not I share the recipes with friends and others thru web blogging. It was a lovely idea I felt but, I am just a simple cook and I myself lazybones.. 🙂 Wasn’t so confident about taking it and there was a long gap after that for few months and one fine day she came up with some names suggesting to our new Blog. Meanwhile, I realized I am not about to handle cookery classes but just share what I knew.. and it’s all about HAVING FUN IN COOKING. “Ruchimayam.blogspot.com” started as our first commitment and ended up with “indianrecipe4u” today. I am ON the screen with my cooking, recipes, articles and photographs while Anju is BEHIND the screen discussing and finalizing the technical aspects of the site.
“indianrecipe4u” reflects my passion for cooking and showcases a variety of Indian food.. most of which are south indian- Andhra recipes, the state I hail from. I being an eggetarian(“a vegetarian who also eats Egg” is what I define), all you find here would be vegetarian recipes or recipes which include egg. Though, I do not mind posting Non-veg recipes if got any, from friends/others. I occasionally try and post some recipes from other cuisines too. Will also include some Cakes and Bakes too soon as I love them to the core.
I wish you all would enjoy my recipes, customizing them as per your tastes and drop me a word sharing your comments. Always thank your time and stay on my website, and look-forward for your visit. So folks.., cook for Fun.. Happy Cooking!!!
