Real Food

I believe the heart of the family beats in the kitchen. Food fuels our body and nourishes our soul. I share here real food made using whole ingredients with big flavour, fresh herbs and health-boosting spices, all influenced by my roots in India and my travels. That’s what you will find here. But I’m also not one to spend hours in the kitchen, as you can tell from my healthy shortcuts and tips in every post. My kitchen is a little complicated – we have a number of food sensitivities in the family – so I tend to make food that is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and tomato-free. Often but not always.
