According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me the passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

Hi Shan, you’re a genius. All your recipes are delicious without being complicated. Keep going, all power to you! Just one small suggestion. I was under the impression that kichadi is something like upma. What you have described here is probably a pachadi or raitha. Or maybe in Kerala its called kichadi. I don’t know. Please check and make the correction, if necessary. Cheers 🙂

    George, Thanks a lot for such a wonderful feedback. It is called Kichadi in Kerala. This is one of the traditional veg side dish which is served along with rice in Kerala. Thanks.
