Indian Cooking Made Easy - Simple Recipes to Make at Home

Who here loves eating a good Indian curry but is filled with dread at the prospect of cooking one from scratch? Me. And I am of Indian origin!

Some people are born to cook delicious food. Others develop the skill out of passion. And then there are those like me who learn to cook out of necessity than for the love of the process.

If you fancy eating some authentic Indian food, made from scratch but without the fuss, join me on this culinary journey where I will be sharing my simplified recipes. If I can cook a half-decent curry, so can you!

I say necessity because try as I might, I have yet to come across a half-decent restaurant that doesn’t charge me a fortune to eat a reasonable curry.

There is only so much Balti, Karhai and Roganjosh I can eat before I start craving an authentic Indian culinary experience. Like vada-paav from Mumbai, khichadi-kadhi from Gujarat, malai jhingri from Goa and idlis from Karnataka. Oh, yes! There is so much more to Indian cooking than what is dished out by the average ‘Indian’ takeaway. And unless a kind-hearted friend or my husband is cooking, the only way I get to eat these culinary delights is by making them myself.

Which brings me to my pet peeve – slogging over food in the kitchen. I want to eat fabulous Indian food, it has to be cheap and the only way out is to cook from scratch. I won’t compromise on taste but can’t be bothered with elaborate recipes. Bit of a catch 22 situation, don’t you think!

It has taken me a good few years, but I may have found a way out of this quandary. I have devised my own short-cuts and tricks to make Indian cooking easy. My methods are simple, my recipes are easy to cook and delicious to eat.


So if you fancy eating some authentic Indian food, made from scratch but without the fuss, join me on this culinary journey where I will be sharing my simplified recipes. If I can cook a half-decent curry, so can you!

  1. I love Indian food, however I'm not the best cook in the world! My husband usually does all the cooking. Would love to try the more authentic dishes like vada-paav and malai jhingri. Can't wait for you to share your recipes! :)
