चर्चे चौके के Charche Chauke Ke

Hey! Join in the Kitchen Gossip!!


The basic everyday food I grew up eating belonged to the fertile gangetic plains…… Central  Uttar Pradesh, to be exact. I did not grow up in that region, its just a part of my heritage, its a part of me, that defines me in a way. The fruits, vegetables and grains in this region were so full of flavor that they did not require a lot of spice and tweaking, so the authentic food was fairly simple. This blog is only my effort at keeping those very simple recipes alive, I grew up eating.  As I have been fortunate enough to travel quite a bit in India and some parts of the U.S. ,my Chauka(Kitchen)  is also an intensely experimental place. I try to give special consideration to nutrition and health as well, as our present lifestyles demand so.  So, please join in the discussions……..in my Charche(discussions) Chauke ke!!

    I immediately remembered your site from the kiwi buche but somehow I must have not seen the Ann Arbor mention on the top right. If you are interested in joining a great group of Michigan food blogging ladies, Mother’s Kitchen has an email entry form on her sidebar. Most of the ladies are in the Ann Arbor area.

  7. hi nidhi,
    are you going to keep continuing the blog? The recipes are great!
