Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m glad to introduce myself to you.
I’m Nithya, a foodie, hodophile, dancer and blogger. The major part of my traveling is to discover food and the most part of my dining is to experiment or re-create them in my fort.
Growing up in the southern part of India, I have lived my childhood days relishing the local and seasonal ingredients in all its grandeur of flavors. My mom is the epitome of purity and elegance in cooking anything. There is always something magical in each of her dishes, that I am privileged to have experienced and have learnt a few tricks up my sleeve. The spluttering of those curry leaves, the dignified aroma of roasted spices and those delicious flavours of my mom’s different range of curries drew me constantly to her world of wonder. The rest is history. She is my inspiration!
Whenever I dine (especially in restaurants), I relish every moment of it, as though it’s just me and the food having a moment together. I get super excited to talk to anyone about food and its flavours. This passion evolved into blogging, something which I had no idea at all. A big shout out to my husband, Narasimhan who has been the backbone in helping my dream come true.
My husband and I share the love to travel and explore. Marriage has been a beautiful journey of love, laughter, watching the sunsets together, coffee, and food (of course). And yes, our bundle of joy, our adorable little girl – Nainika always brightens up our home.
I’m a trained Indian classical dancer, I love watching Korean movies, my favourite food is anything that screams flavours of garlic; and my little secret – you can win me over with a cup of coffee.
As Auguste Gusteau says, ‘Anyone can cook’ (in the movie Ratatouille), you can cook when you put your heart and soul in it. Hope you like my blog. I’d be more than happy to connect here.
What you’ll find here
My dream come true grew into a world filled with dramatic recipes that bring bold flavours to life; in a nutshell it is home to the ones that hold a special place in my heart (Well, my heart never gets tired of more and more recipes).
From your warm family meals to simple recipes, I have done my best in explicitly posting each recipe with stepwise pictures. It sure will be helpful for easy reference. I am the exclusive photographer (photography has become my new found interest).
All of the recipes from the different cuisines across the globe are sincerely inspired from all my travel experiences. As much as my craving to try different cuisines wherever I go, I love to experiment them in my fort and share them with you in the easiest way possible.
Finally if you’d wish to republish my recipes, kindly provide attribution and link to the original recipe.
