"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........
Some of the recipes that I have tried,tested and tasted..and some that I want to try,test and taste... :) ....and other useful information all collected and saved in one place.....

potato stir fry
Potatoes (medium) 250 gm
Dhania seeds (roasted) 1tbs
Zeera (roasted) 1 tsp
Sonth (powdered dried ginger) 1tsp
Dried anardana 1 tbsp
Red chillies (shredded after roasting) two
Green chillies (chopped, optional) two
(or any other preferred cooking medium) 2 tbsp
A small pinch of hing
A large sprig of fresh dhania
Salt to taste
Wash the potatoes and slice into thin rounds. Heat oil in a frying pan and when smoking, add hing. Follow with other coarsely pounded spices immediately. Add potatoes, anardana, chillies, along with salt. Stir well. Lower the heat and cover to cook for about five to seven minutes. Sprinkle with a little water to avoid sticking to the bottom or scalding. Garnish with fresh dhania.
