My cousin sis 3P once said that we both have been born into a family of foodies. I remember that realising that it was something that was as true as an other universal fact. I just had not seen it.
How blind could I have been? My mom and Patti are excellent cooks. Mom’s from Trichur but she cooks anything. Her Gujju dishes have made Gujju’s shower praise. My Patti is a food-freak – the incipient of it all. Any conversation with her will include – “What did you have for breakfast and lunch and dinner?” If someone wants to make her happy, we just ask about a recipe. My sis runs a restaurant in Chennai. And everyone else (dad, uncle, cuzns) love hot and spicy vegetarian food. I love cooking so much, I dance a jig and sing when I cook.
I have come across a lot of links that have good recipes on the net. So I thought, why not put them in a post where everyone could check it out at once. I’ll keep updating them as I get more.
Here they are:
Recipezaar : You can search in any conceivable fashion. Plus you get a calorie sheet, a servings adjuster and an option choose my ingredient and save and print the recipe. Woo Hoo!
Mental Masala’s Blog blog : Very nice blog if you use the tags on the right. He gives a good intro about the food he prepares.
100% Microwave Food blog : This is the site that I love. Microwave cooking is something I discovered after coming to Sharjah. It’s easy, takes less time, requires not much attention, stirring and can be taken out served. Check out this guys links to other blogs. He’s pretty much done what I started to do.
ClickaFood blog: This guy writes a superb blog. Bachelor recipe paradise! Only problem – No links to help searching faster.
Sailu’s cooking blog: This is a must-read if Andhra cooking is your thing.
Mom and Patti’s cooking : Well, its not written down yet .. but you want to taste heaven 😉 go to these people.
Conversion of various cooking units can be comfortably done here.
You’ll notice that a lot of the links are blogs. Let’s face the facts. Websites needs money to run and many of them are not going to hand out recipes for free. So blogs rule the roost. Here’s a nice site using which you can search for any category of blogs. Simplifies a laborious search process.
