If you are a keen cook and want to learn how to cook authentic Indian food you have landed on the right page. Welcome to a whole new experience of cooking Indian regional food from scratch.

This blog contains recipes with clear and brief instructions on how to prepare a variety of vegan, vegetarian, meat and fish based dishes. Many recipes are light and spicy but not very hot, so very different to curry house dishes.

My focus is on helping you to prepare delicious and authentic dishes from different regions in India including Punjab, Maharashtra, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. You will see Mughlai dishes from the Mughals of North India, Nizami dishes from the Nizams of Hyderabad and Vegetarian dishes from the Brahmins, Aggarwals and Marwaris of West and North India. Indian cuisine is very diverse and I hope to introduce you to some of this richness through this blog.
