When did you first get in to cooking and do you remember the first recipe you tried?
I was forced to cook when I was doing my masters in UK but I got really interested in it after I moved to US with my husband. Food became my best friend and slowly I became addicted to cooking particularly baking. The first thing that I tried was an Indian curry and it came out well.
What's your kitchen like and how do you keep organized when cooking?
My kitchen is spacious, earlier I had a very tiny kitchen but because I spend so much time in it we shifted to a new apartment with a bigger kitchen. I try to clean things side by side, like if I use an ingredient I put it back to it's place before moving on to the next step. I feel it's much better than cleaning everything together at the end.
What tips would you give to someone wanting to become a better cook?
Keep experimenting, trying new combinations. Things may not always turn out the way you expect them to but don't give up, have patience. And the most important thing, have fun!
Who would you invite to your dream dinner party and what would you cook for them?
Mostly Indian food because that's what I usually eat and relish. Lots of curries, naan, rice and Indian dessert like kulfi or some pudding.
Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?
I like to read, run and practice yoga.
