About my food:
An Indie who resides in Nagpur and is proud to call India home. I grew up in SURAT city, approximately 4 hours from Ahmedabad. The city itself is still unknown to many foreigners but when comes to food, it is an absolute favourite destination for many food lovers.
India is a cultural melting pot and I was very lucky to get exposure to many different types of Indian Cuisine at very young age. Food has always played an important role in our diverse culture, so it is not uncommon to find Indians greeting each other by asking “Have you eaten yet?” instead of “how are you?”
In 2003, I moved to Nagpur.Then in 2008, I started missing childhood meals tremendously, so that’s when I started picking up a knife and a wok and developing a strong passion towards cooking. When it comes to cooking, my biggest inspiration has to be my mum. You will find some recipes on the blog that I’ve learned from my mum throughout the years, even though we weren’t really allowed to touch anything in the kitchen but only to observe. But I do believe is a good thing as I now cook by following my instincts and am always ready to explore new flavours, rather than strictly following recipes.
With my Asian background and the influence of western culture, I count myself lucky to have been exposed to some of the most spectacular cuisines from both worlds. As someone who loves food in all its forms, I believe we should try everything once, love it or hate it.
Meinwalt is a delicious playground where I can express myself in food.
