Hi! I am Padma Veeranki, the chef, recipe developer, a budding photographer and voice behind Masalakorb. I belong to the pool of Indian bloggers out there who are attempting at…. before I get into the details as to how wonderful my blog is going to be in order to keep you guys hooked (I know I am being modest :P), let me share a bit about myself .
For starters, I am a mother of two not so small kids who are obsessed with food as much as me and a wonderful supportive husband who loves to sneak into my kitchen and make a complete mess out of it (even though the end product could be worth the mess ;-). My family and I have lived mostly in India, Singapore (not a significant amount but later you will find out that this place is the reason for my seafood obsession..best seafood ever!) and presently in Germany. I have been living in Germany over a dozen years and hence the little personal touch to my blog name -MasalaKorb (masala- spices, Korb- basket (German)).
What can you find in my blog?
Cooking food is truly an art that proves to be more therapeutic than you can imagine. I will attempt my best in providing informative posts and walk you through even the most basic recipes required in achieving that glorious Indian food that you have been craving for.
I will be sharing with you guys all of the wonderful, aromatic mind numbing recipes that have been used in my family since forever, adding my magical touch to it, which will give your local Indian restaurants a run for their money.
Why blogging? I think it is a great way to preserve all the hard work to pass down heirloom recipes to my children and many more inquisitive readers like you.
The golden Q: Why follow MasalaKorb????
MasalaKorb will convince you that Indian food is not just about dumping curry on a handful of steamed rice (that still tastes amazing though), but it can be much more than that. From easy 10 minute recipe, elaborate slow-cooking for delicious tender meat with bursting flavour to desserts with spices you never thought should be associated with sugar, this has it all.This blog will teach you to cook, present and make sure that you can eat this soulful food with your eyes and mouth. If I still have not convinced you of how amazing this blog will be, why not take a sneak peek & scroll through my Recipe Index :).
P.S: If you test out a recipe, do let me know through your comments. Nothing brightens my day better than a positive feedback and it is your encouragement what keeps me moving on and inspires me to contribute more to this site. I am always happy to take suggestions (I take criticism well basically :P). Keeping my fingers crossed ☺)).
