After graduating from Jyothi Nivas College, Bangalore, I pursued an MBA in finance from IGNOU, after my both children were born. I am an enthusiastic learner and passionate about every little thing I do. Professionally, I have found myself the most self-satisfying role – that of homemaker!

I was introduced to cooking in my early childhood days when my parents bought kitchen kit toys for me. Playing with them was one of my favourite pastimes as a child. As I grew, the toys were replaced with the real kitchen items, and my interest, and enthusiasm for cooking continued.

I enjoy experimenting in cooking with unique combinations, like bitter gourd and melon seeds, soya bean or bottle gourd in bisibele bath, and bitter gourd roti. Though I cook with a lot of ease, sometimes I take more time thinking “what to name the dish?”!

The recipe I wish to share has been passed on from my grandmother to my mother. Though the procedure looks lengthy, I have seen my mother cook it effortlessly. Well, it is one of the best dishes my brother Kritish and I enjoy from our “Mom’s kitchen”.
