Introducing Malini

Dear readers,

Writing my first blog, something I intended to do for a long time by utilizing my free me-time (read nap time).
I love drawing & painting, cooking, art & crafts, reading (not necessary in that order). Also love to eat & cook food.

I used to collect recipes from around the world since my college days. You can say I was more of a recipe collector at that time.
Learnt various tips on Bengali cooking from my mom (she was born & brought up in Bihar) and Non-Bengali (read Maharashtrian) cuisine from my dad as he grew up in Nagpur (Believe me, he is a great cook and still can prepare a whole course if any guests are coming for lunch / dinner)

Married to a family of foodies, I was expected to take charge of the kitchen immediately after marriage. Both my husband and father-in-law love to eat new dishes (my mom-in-law is a great cook, always trying out & experimenting new recipes besides Bengali cuisine and I learnt several Continental, Chinese and Italian recipes from her).

The most important thing one should remember while cooking is that one should cook food with love (the most important ingredient of all).

There is a popular saying “A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, which is literally established in my in-law’s place.
Only I would like to modify it by saying “A way to everyone’s heart (be it your near & dear ones, friends & relatives and acquaintances who happen to cross your life) is through their appreciation”.

Basically a homemaker, a work-from-home mom and a glass designer artefacts designer (hobby), trying to balance all the ongoing activities in my life and trying to enjoy life as it unfolds.

So here I pen down the various recipes I learnt from my mom, my maternal grandmother and my mom-in-law (the process is still going on……)

Greetings to everyone who happen to visit this blog of mine. Hope you visit again.
