Hing is the New Patchouli?

This is a place to share easy to make recipes for South Indian vegetarian dishes and some fusion cuisine born of years of cooking in the US. Easy doesn’t mean boring or basic. Make tasty, healthful (and not so healthful) dishes that will wow your friends and family. I started off on Facebook with the encouragement of my sister in law. I was quite baffled by the interest and the numbers of people from India and other places who expressed interest and began to ask questions. Facebook brought in the traffic but the timeline was too restrictive and did not provide any form of organization or search. So this blog.

I focus on recipes that have high return on effort, fresh ingredients and lip smacking flavors.
